Nuts are not bad; same with fruit.
You can also buy sandwiches and eat just the meat. Have them make up the sandwich plain and throw out the bread. Roast beef may be best since it generally doesn't have any nonpaleo stuff mixed in.

I feel like I eat all the time and Samjohn says I dont eat enough meat or fat, where could I add more?
I think you're doing pretty well. Except for the small slip with the grits, the last few days look quite good. If you get hungry at times, you could keep some boiled eggs around for snacking.
I checked the Eggland's Best eggs, and the ones at my grocery store have 100 mg omega 3s per egg. That's definitely better than commercial eggs, but not as much as the organic omega 3 eggs at 200mg per egg. Just thought I'd let you know; not saying you have to get the organic ones. Either would be good for snacking.

hmmmm had extremely stuffed up nose after eating the omelette...about 20 minutes after eating it AND had phlegmy throat and one or two hives. I haven't had eggs in a while...wondering if I am reacting to them.
What kind of lard are you using? Good lard is excellent, but some of the lard one finds in grocery stores is hydrogenated, and thus more of an industrial food than a paleo one.

A strictly paleo diet would be fresh meat, fruit, and vegetables only. The fastest way to lose weight on that diet would probably be to omit the fruit.

When you say to make sure I eat a lot of fat, what do you exactly mean? Can you give me an example? Thanks for your help
An example would be, when making salisbury steak (hamburger without the bun), use regular (e.g., 70-75% lean) ground beef instead of "lean" (80-90% lean) ground beef.

I would suggest not pushing it. Just stick to strict paleo yourself. Once he's seen the good effects on you for a couple of months, he may change his mind.

Honestly, when I saw that post I thought, "are you sure you're getting enough to eat?" In retrospect I think it's enough because of the walnuts, but I think you will definitely be able to lose weight if that's all you're eating.

I would get rid of it. A really good salad shouldn't require any dressing. A not so good salad can be saved with just a bit of vinegar or olive oil, which are probably less severe cheats.
Um, and just because I'm a math gnurd, for 10g of sugar to be only 1% of your caloric intake, you'd have to be eating 4000 kcal per day. Sugar and starches add up fast!

natew, I doubt you are losing muscle mass. Usually people lose about 10 lb of water weight in the first week or two of paleo.
That said, you might want to make sure you are getting enough fat, so the protein can go to muscle and not be burned for energy. If the chicken breasts and salmon have their skin on and the beef is full fat, you should be fine.

How many total cups did you make at first? Divide the calories for the two packages of stew meat by the number of cups, and you have the calories per cup for your stew.

At ~50 over, how can you not have realized that something you're doing isn't working right.
You could realize it and not know what to do about it.
Although I was never obese, I see how it could come about. I was at my peak of 155 pounds at 5'11" when I came across the paleo diet, having gained 5 lb per year for a couple of years. On the paleo diet I've stabilized at around 140, but had I not come across the paleo diet idea for another decade or two, I might well have kept gaining until I was obese.

Usually if I have breakfast, it's uncured bacon and eggs. The uncured bacon does have a bit of added salt in it, which isn't strictly paleo, so if you wanted to be really strict you could have steak and eggs instead.
This morning I had a couple of leftover barbeque pork ribs from last night, though.

Here's an article indicating that protein causes an insulin response, but does not seem to affect glucose levels much. That's in type II diabetics rather than nondiabetics, so take it for what it's worth: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/6389060
