Blood has plenty of salt in it, and paleo man's meat wasn't carefully drained of blood the way modern man's is.

There are also salt licks, the ocean for those who lived on the coast, etc.  I suspect blood was the main source, though.

Ya' gotta' eat but aside from tallow, your rations are not paleo in any way shape or form. Pemmican would be good though.

Traveling is admittedly tough. I generally drag my travel trailer on my extended journeys just so I can keep my fridge stocked with paleo foods and cook for myself.

I do eat on the road a lot with my job though, but usually only a couple or a few days at a time at the most. For those trips I bring boiled and brined eggs, pre-cooked bacon, sliced ham, jerky, canned and smoked fish, fruit, nuts (usually pistachios or macadamia), and some frozen, pre-cooked meat and/or omelets.  You have to get creative based on how much you need, how much and what kind of storage you have, and what you have to cook on.

I can't give you a specific answer but I seem to recall reading that naturally raised (pastured) meat and game meat have a significantly higher level of sodium than grain-fed commercial meat has.

Diet and nutrition / How did cave men get salt?

My buddy and I were moving and it was 100+ degrees. Over 4 hours he drank 6 bottles of water and I told him that he should drink some sea salt and water for the hydration. He said that's all BS, and cave men never had lots of salt for rehydration so he won't do it either.

Is he wise in this? Did cave men know to up there salt intake, and how did they do it?

My immediate thought is that whey protein and other powders are highly nonpaleo.  Presumably you can't live off the land, though.  What are the emergency rations for, if you know how long you'll be out?

No I def cant live off the land, unfortunately I dont have time o the ability to make jerky at this point. Idealy I would make Pemmican for future expeditions. The emergency rations are because any veteran remote backpacker knows to bring excess emergency food. You can never fully predict the outcome of a remote expedition.

Plasma, my main thought is that chicken is quite lean, and switching to fattier meats would probably your best bet.  If you have been on high protein low fat, your liver has been working overtime turning the extra protein into blood glucose, so you may not be in ketosis, and the tiredness you are feeling may be the normal "low carb flu" from the period of adjustment to ketosis.

So if I generally just ate Animal Fats and Vegetables with a little added protein when I was hungry and strictly just that would it be safe to say Im pretty good to go diet wise ?

If I could jump in ...

I do expeditions every year in remote places for weeks at a time. This year ill be in western Newfoundland for 2 weeks. Remote.

My plan so far is Whey Protein, Beyond Tangy Tangerine (powder nutrient supplement) and Tallow. I will be bringing Oats and Rice as emergency rations.

Any thoughts / suggestions ?
