Protein Consumption Questions
I just signed up for My Fitness Pal and it seems very heavy on carbs and light on protein in its calculations. Should you just use to track and not pay attention to the way the calories are allotted? One thing I see is that I'm not eating enough... (more)
I'm looking for great stats on the consumption of proteins. For example, beef consumption by cut of meat or consumption of farm raised versus caught fish. I've come up a bit short via the Googles... anyone have any ideas?
I'm trying to add some more protein into my diet and eggs are a good, cheap source of it. I know most hunter gatherers didn't eat many eggs because they're hard to find. How many eggs can I eat in one day before it becomes unhealthy?
I'm been Paleo for around a year. This is what I'm eating these days - a combo of what doesn't bother my gut too much (I have bad IBS and prone to bloat), what is convenient for me, and what I like to eat. But I'm wondering if my omega balance... (more)

Hi Grenadine, I don't think the oversimplification in that presentation is "criminal", but it is a case of oversimplifying leading to small errors. The overarching point seemed to be that excess protein doesn't get stored as such to build... (more)

No offense, however, I got to tell you bro, I will eat any kind of offal, but the image of a Chicken breast omelet makes me want blast chunks. It's a sort of mother and child reunion.
I know this question does not have a "one-size fits all" answer but I am curious to hear from personal experiences. My goal right now is to put on muscle, period. I went from ~185lbs to ~170lbs in the 6 months I've been eating Paleo. My weight has... (more)
I'm generally against counting calories, grams of this or that or calculating various ratios. I figure that if I compose meals based on nutrient density, toxin load, satiety, and of course taste, it will all take care of itself. The result has... (more)

Hey guys, I'm a 20 yr old female that recently started eating paleo (again). Right now I'm consuming approx. 1,200 calories per day; although, I'll admit, sometimes I consume closer to 1,000. I realize this is probably too little, but I'm... (more)
A lot of people coming to paleo were restricting their meat/fat consumption and really go to town on it for awhile. I was a veg head for so long that I felt amazing when I ate heavy protein at every meal. Well, years later I've gotten my fill and... (more)

in this case, im probably missing something. as far as i know (not much) about paleo, it is based on protein and fat. so how is it goes along with these facts? paleo people consume alot of protein dont they?

I've read over and over again that when eating paleo, consuming 1-1.5 grams of protein per pound of bodyweight is best for building muscle, but how much working out does this rule require? I do crossfit three time a week, and usually another... (more)

How should I eat tomorrow to give my body a break from a really protein heavy day? Fast? Carb-heavy day? Business as usual? Or does it matter at all? I just entered my food from today into Cronometer - 177 grams of protein. Yikes. I am 5'6, 120... (more)
