Major concerns with going paleo/ancestral
« on: May 27, 2017, 08:54:31 AM »
I have been trying to eat like this for a year now and failing. I cook some coconut oil in the pan, put in my herbs and spices, put in my meat, add my veggies. I have 4 meals like this a day and I'm only getting 1,800 calories.

Do you count the coconut oil that is left in the pan? Or the olive oil that is left behind from the drizzling?

I can't get enough calories or enough fat. I don't want to eat lots of nuts due to omega 6's and polyunsaturated fats.


I'm a 25 year old male at 19% bodyfat at 155lb, training 7 days a week doing gymnastics. I don't want to eat fruit or carbs until I'm very lean. What should I do?

Quit using coconut and olive oil and use rendered animal fat, bacon fat, etc. Also avoid extra lean meats. Easy way to get high quality calories and it will keep your appetite in check as well.

More eggs bro! Fry em in butter, you'll be up to 1k calories from breakfast pretty easily.

While you're trying to lose weight, 1800 kcal/day is fine.  When you need more, eat fattier meat.
