Carbs and calories are fine in a paleo diet.
Is ,or is not paleo, is a bad question. Honey is paleo, not particularly healthy, Rattlesnake venom is paleo, definitely a bad idea. Coconut oil isn't paleo, but it is healthy. Healthy food is about nutrient density with as little problematic chemicals as possible. There are beneficial things in a Twinkies. But there are way more negatives there as well. Thinks like grass fed cow liver and kale are good for you, massively nutrient dense and have extremely little problematic chemicals in them. Thats what makes them healthy. The paleo diet is a good starting point, there are things in the diet that are bad, and there are things outside the diet that are good.
Cant remember exactly but its something like this:
Fructose over consumption messes up kidney function. One of the the functions of the kidneys is to excrete excess uric acid. When they are damaged they cannot excrete as much uric acid as they should be able to, so you get to a level of excess uric acid. Then gout.
Normal docs/researchers see that there is a larger amount of uric acid in meats so they say eat less meat to help gout. Sounds logical but its not the right pathway. Now if you have gout and eat a lot of meat, then that meat can make it worse since you have issues with the uric acid in the meat. But The fructose is the root problem. There are also many cases of paleo people solving their gout issues.

Agreed. Sorry my main point was that not all new food is bad, it is more suspect, but even some old food is bad (honey)

He gets some stuff right. But also a lot wrong. His best point is "paleo people didn't eat so we cant either". There are plenty of new foods that are safe and even beneficial. Olive oil, grass fed butter, potatoes. When we first came out of the trees we didn't eat meat, but some started and grew a bigger brain because of it. Meat was a new food to them, and it was a huge boon to their species.
Look up Mat LaLonde and Kurt Harris for a more precise look at the paleo styled diets.
And who said carbs are bad?
So, good job so far. A few things ive learned over the last 3 years or so
For fat loss:
Eat only when hungry
No Snacking (adjust meal size and anything else you need to achieve this)
Keep carbs around 75g a day and make the majority post workout.
Sleep at least 8 hours and more like 9
Keep breakfast very low carb or zero, if you eat it at all
1-3 meals a day, im best at 1-2.
Look up satiety and weight loss (potatoes are fantastic for this)
Lift heavy weights 1-3 times a week, interval cardio once a week if you want. No more.
This might help as well
Things that have worked for me:
For fat loss, eat only when hungry. eat a medium to large meal. Sleep 8-9 hours a night, no snacking, keep it pretty low carb. Again if you aren't hungry don't eat.
For muscle gain, same stuff, eat a bit more than just when hungry. Eat a large amount of protein after weights(~50g) and a good wack of carbs after sprint style workouts.
The last few things i discovered that got rid of my last bit of pudginess were:
Eat only when hungry, try and make your meals smallish, aim for hungry 1-2 times a day.
Eat 1-2 times a day, 0 snacking
Only 0 calorie drinks
Sleep 8-9 hours a night
Eat leaner protein than normal(lean protein is more satiating)
I did Scheduled IF for a little while. I would skip breakfast and lunch on Mondays. It was nice for a bit but then i got to the cold and tired stage. Ive since gone to eating only when hungry, and eating till full. Now i usually skip a meal every other day. I have leaned out noticeably. I would assume this is what normal people would do during paleo times. Food wasn't waiting for you in the kitchen. So you probably got hungry before you either hunted or sought out some gatherables.
Eat whole food, eat only when hungry, eat until full, Sleep at least 8 hours per night. No snacks

There is a whole foods and a HEB central market near downtown. There are also quite a few farmers markets down by the bay that i know of. Search farmers market/houston and there are lists

My go to arguments are always:
There has never been a vegan society in the history of the earth
People that eat a non-processed paleo diet have no CVD, Stroke, Diabetes, or cancer in any detectable amounts (masi, kitavans)
Here is a good tool for oils
higher is better, farther right is more heat resistant. Most here us coconut, tallow, or grass fed butter.
