I'm a software engineer.  I've never had to do more than say "no, thank you" or "I don't eat that stuff" more than a couple of times.  I have lots of coworkers who eat unhealthy snacks all day and are overweight, but they all realize it's unhealthy, so once they realize I have a diet I really stick to, they don't tend to push.

I buy my ground beef from - I just put in an order for 80 pounds of beef, costing a little over $500, which will last my family a few months.  I buy most of the rest of my groceries from Whole Foods Mart.

Not from Utah and it has been decades since I lived in the midwest, but welcome to the forum!

Welcome to paleo!

You'll need to make up for some of the carb calories you're dropping.  More or fattier meat will help.

The main issue on eggs is the omega 3 versus omega 6 balance.  I eat pastured eggs or organic omega 3 eggs.  Free range is not as big a deal as what the chickens are fed.  That said, if you're on a budget, commercial eggs may be okay, especially if you get some fish with the skin on for omega 3s.

For calcium, I take calcium pills just in case.  But I also get lots of water to avoid kidney stones in case I overdo it.

You can fry meat in oil, absolutely!  I use tallow and bacon grease.

You could try the almond flour, but it might throw you out of ketosis.

Good idea to start a food journal.  I hope you come back and keep it up.

For what it's worth, acid reflux was one of the problems that for me got worse on paleo before it got better.  I postulate this was because the stomach acid got stronger immediately, perhaps in response to more meat in the diet, but the strengthening of the sphincter muscle that kept it in the stomach and out of the esophagus took a bit longer.  I haven't had problems with it in years, though.

Date sugar, if it's sugar extracted from dates like it sounds like, is not paleo.  Dates and almonds are paleo, but whether you want to include them depends on what your goal is for going paleo.  If you want to reduce fat, they're better to leave out, focusing on meat and green vegetables instead.

Donglailly, less veggies and fruit, especially fruit, might help.  Also, cut out any starchy "vegetables".  However, to really identify the culprit, you'd need to start a food journal and write down everything you eat.  Then people who have been here a while would be able to point out likely culprits.

If you stick to strict paleo for a few months, it likely won't taste bitter any more.  For example, 86% chocolate tastes sweet, not bitter, to me.

Oats are grains and not paleo.  If you're going to have that much oats in your pancakes, you might as well have regular wheat flour pancakes.
