Diet and nutrition / Re: Eggs:how many and what kind do you eat?
« on: July 20, 2008, 12:30:28 PM »
If you care about omega 6 : omega 3 fat ratio, there's a big difference between regular eggs on the one hand, and organic or omega 3 eggs on the other.  Regular eggs are around 20:1 based on what I can find on the web, while omega 3 eggs are much closer to 1:1.

I've switched to omega 3 eggs, and have 1-2 a day, but I'm not really on the paleo diet yet.

Diet and nutrition / Where do you get your calories?

I'm not on a paleo diet at the moment, primarily because I still eat bread and potatos.  I'm considering moving entirely to paleo for the possible long term health benefits.  I don't need to reduce my weight, so I don't need to reduce my calories.  I'm trying to figure out what I would replace the starch with.

Here's a typical day for me:

breakfast:  2 egg omelette with a little onion and 1/4 tomato, 6 oz orange juice

daytime snacks:  1/2 banana, sesame breadsticks with butter (maybe 300 kcal worth), 1/2 can sardines

dinner:  3 oz organic beef, 1/2 potato, small salad with no dressing (1/2 tomato is the only thing with much in the way of calories)

evening snacks:  1 oz popcorn or other grain based snack popped in soy oil, orange

It looks to me like about half my calories are from grain and potato starch.  What should I replace it with?  Where do you get your nonmeat calories?
