You *could* eat exclusively fat and protein, but it would be pretty unhealthy.
I greatly dislike the term "caveman diet", because the "caveman" is a complete fiction of bad anthropology. "Neanderthin" is a clever marketing term, but it also fails to satisfy me, because we aren't Neanderthals. "Primal Blueprint" utterly fails to appeal to me, because there's nothing primal about protein shakes and occasional dairy.
Before I discovered the Paleo Diet, I wrote of wanting to follow a "Foraging Diet". That, to me, better encapsulates the concept I wish to follow. Our pre-agricultural ancestors foraged for edible plant and animal life, frequently wandering from place to place.
I have been working primarily from home in the past few months and I'm single. This setting allowed me to schedule meals as I wanted and not at predefined times, and eating primarily at home.Going paleo I found that:- By eating when I was hungry I did not follow my previous meal schedules. Some days I would go from waking up till 3-4pm with just some herbal tea. I would then have late lunch (at 4pm), and then dinner around 8pm. Sometimes I would fast until 6-7pm, have "1st dinner" then and have "2nd dinner" at around 11pm.- Other days I would have breakfast at 8 and lunch at 11, several snacks in the afternoon and a late dinner (around 10pm).- Overall, by eating when I felt hungry I found out that I did not need a much food on average, but when I was particularly hungry I could eat a lot. I also found that, because they require no preparation, I tended to eat more fruit and nuts than advisable. I managed that by planning to run out of them before going back for groceries.So another thing to expect from going paleo is that you won't feel constantly hungry.
