Diet and nutrition / noob to paleo
« Last post by usmcslater on August 03, 2014, 06:06:19 PM »
Whats going on fellow paleo enthusiasts!

    Obviously there are about 100 "noob to paleo" threads but just looking through the first page, didnt see anything related to what I wanted to ask and seeing as how its my first post to the forum I figured id just do it anyway 8).  Ive done a lot of reading into paleo as far as what is and is not allowed.  What my main issue is coming up with recipes for paleo meals, I am very uncreative in the kitchen (I'm a male so I just throw on a piece a chicken with pepper and think im Wolfgang Puck) and that's really my biggest down fall with staying committed to the diet.  I get bored of eating the same foods all the time and don't know how to exactly spice it up and I work for a professional moving company, moving 50-300lbs of furniture all day for 10+ hours as well as do crossfit 3 days a week in the morning, so I NEED to eat at least 6 times a day hah.  But like I said its hard for me to find variety in cooking, ill buy a bunch of chicken, fish and greens and cook it all on a sunday and think ill be able to handle eating chicken and greens for a week and I get SOOOOO sick and tired of eating the same thing every single day that I end up giving in to temptation and eat not so great foods, but I feel satisfied as far as having some sort of variety other than chicken/fish and greens all day.

So to my question ha, does anyone know of a particular website or could give me a good breakdown of great paleo recipes that vary each day within the week and proper quantities of food as well as snacks for a guy who needs to eat at least 6 times a day and is is extremely physical with crossfit and his job.

That would be super swell if ya could  ;D

Thanks folks!

Yes, you are right.  I had some issues with all that "paleo baked goods".  I actually fell off the paleo thing for a few days because I started having stomach issues (poo...).  Then I realized that the problem I was having I think was caused by eating way too much fat!  Since I at so much wheat before, that is low fat high carbs, my stomach wasn't used to eating so much fat. 

So I am trying it again, but this time I will try to avoid the paleo baked goods, and not eat more meat then I normally would, but instead, increase how many veggies and fruit I eat.

Dinner tonight I think was very good and what I need to do.  I made a huge pot of sautéed kale, piled a bunch onto a plate.  I made some hamburgers with grass fed beef, I only had a little, about 4 oz worth (before cooking) which seemed like a tiny bit, and then cut up a tomato (from the garden, they are coming in, yummy!) and that was my dinner.  Replacing bread/grains with extra kale and the tomato really worked pretty well, I feel great right now after such a healthy dinner :)

Stick with fresh whole meat, fruit, and vegetables and you'll be fine.  Full fat meat is good, but the extra oils you mention can help maintain adequate fat levels in the diet as well.  Stay away from grains, legumes, tubers, dairy, and of course manufactured and refined foods.

I kind of feel like the article reflects an incomplete understanding of high intensity interval training.  HIIT is a form of interval training, not a form of high intensity training.  It has intervals of lower intensity, and some forms of HIIT never get into the anaerobic range.  Even the "high intensity" parts are only high intensity relative to most cardio training.

And frankly, the regimen he suggests - training at 150 bpm heart rate - is actually pretty high intensity as well, as aerobic training goes.  I'm certainly willing to believe that doing it for 30 minutes a day instead of 10 minutes a day will result in marginally greater aerobic gains - if you have the time to do that.

I do think the point he brings up about heart stroke volume is interesting.  That may be difficult to develop without longer periods of aerobic training.  But again, you have to have the time for it.

Hello Paelo People!

I've come to Paleo after a lifetime of being overweight, false starts, daft diets, miscellaneous health issues and high strength medication as a result. Although I've had more than my share of false starts and daft diets I'm still at it, and recently signed in to a slimming club on doctor's orders. At first I didn't loose any weight until I went with my instinct, stopped eating grain and stepped up on fats eg virgin coconut oil and butter.

It got me wanting to know more so here I am.

best wishes

I've been canoeing/kayaking this spring/summer and find it enjoyable.  Paddling for 3 hrs would definintely qualify as long duration cardio - so i'm covered either way!

That said, this doesn't mean turn into a distance runner - i.e. someone who's injured half the time with knee/leg issues and carries no upper body muscle :)

Walnuts or macademias, which are mostly fat.  Then you can eat the meat you're offered, which will probably be too lean, and make up the fat from the nuts.

Also, olive oil may be a good compromise oil if you're going to be fed a lot of salads.

Those are tough trips aren't they.  Plus just family stress or dealing with lots of people 24/7!  (and I like my family a lot)

Jerky, tuna, dried fruit, I'm thinking lots of portable things like this.
