Using full fat ground beef - 70% to 75% lean - should fix the issue.

Diet and nutrition / Low calories?
« Last post by CH on April 06, 2015, 07:20:37 PM »
Hello, I'm doing Paleo and I noticed that I may not be getting enough calories.  A typical day:

Breakfast: 2 bananas, 1 apple, 1/2 lb of turkey, 2 cups of juiced kale/carrot)
Lunch: pretty much the same as breakfast
Dinner: 1/2 -1lb of beef + a vegetable (normally broccoli, carrots, kale or asparagus)

I did the calculation and I'm getting less than 1500 calories per day.  I was wondering if anyone had any tips or trick as to how to increase my calorie intake (I'm doing an exercise routine trying to build muscle and you can't really do that if you're not getting enough calories).

Things I've thought of:
-drizzling coconut oil over my meats and veggies
-drinking more juices (real juices, not crap with HFCS)
-nuts (but they're kinda expensive)
-Yucca (I've read it's paleo, but it seems to have a lot of carbs in it)

Thanks in advance for any help!

PS I also have this gene that lets me taste this disgusting chemical in eggs.  I literally can't swallow a bite of hardboiled egg without throwing up.  So eggs ain't an option.

Research / Re: Paleolithic man consumed elephants in the levant

Yes - I can't imagine that they would let all that good protein and fat go to waste, just to use the animal's skin.  I don't know how they would preserve all that meat- I guess they would just have to gorge themselves on it and let the remainder go to waste.  Or maybe they would notify neighboring tribes of the bounty (assuming they were on friendly terms).

Data from a site in Israel show that during the paleolithic, humans skinned and processed hides from elephants.  Seems likely they were eating the meat and fat they were separating the hides from.

A major ingredient of those "paleo" tacos, arrowroot powder, is a pretty refined starch.  I wouldn't call it paleo.

Paleo is not about calorie counting.  It is about eating only the food types that humans got adapted to eating during the paleolithic.  Eat fresh whole meat, fruit, and nonstarchy vegetables, and maybe some tree nuts.  Avoid most other things.

Corn and flour were not eaten during the paleolithic.  I don't know what is in your "paleo tortillas" but the general rule of thumb is that any food that starts with "paleo" probably isn't.

Hello,
  I'm a Paleo Noob.
I looking into going paleo for health and diet.  A corn hard shell has 50 calories and 7 carbs, a flour tortilla has 130 calories and 24 cabs.  A Paleo Tortilla has 104 calories and 10 carbs.
For diet and health wouldn't a hard shell be better?

I guess maybe I miss some points of the Paleo diet.  Is it just better over all ingredients?

Any suggestions? I am not planning on re-introducing red meat or pork to my diet. Trying to find a solution...

I think you're right:  you're not getting enough fat because you've restricted your diet to lean meats.  I'd say it's time to bring the fatty beef and pork in again.
