Paleo challenge – done!

for the next 30 days, I will base my diet on REAL foods

  • lots of nonstarchy vegetables
  • meat, fish, seafood, poultry, eggs
  • fats from olive oil, avocado, coconut oil
I will keep my consumption of fruits, nuts and tubers very moderate because I am trying to lean out.
.
However, to make my life enjoyable, I will allow myself to eat dark chocolate (85% cocoa) when I feel like it (most likely everyday! lol but I’ll try to keep to no more than 30 g a day to achieve my goal of leaning out)! =)

I will avoid all processed foods and gut irritants to allow my gut to heal, including:

  • dairy 
  • all grains
  • legumes & peanuts
  • sugar

    • Thanks for suggesting the Lindt Dark chocolate! I am always on the lookout for new items to try and will be giving this one a whirl for sure!

      • You can also have any type of chocolate containing 70 pecent cocoa or more, ideally 85 percent cocoa or more, to keep the sugar low. However, if you have fructose malabsorption, chocolate is not a good idea…

  1. Hi there!
    Thank you for your blog, it has so many great recipes on it. I am looking forward to mimicking some of them!
    Though I am new to this diet, and it seems like it would be fairly easy to do, except i realize i have been brainwashed, and i fear fats! I just can not wrap my brain around eating bacon instead of turkey and oils and such.
    I dont know really what answers I am looking for, just help! lol
    Today I gave it a try and so far (I still havn’t had a snack, dinner or dessert)
    Calories:810
    Fat:32 g
    Cholesterol:293 mg
    Sodium:318 mg
    Carbs:69 g
    Fiber:16 g
    Protein:63 g
    Sugars:28 g (from creamer, berries, carrots and tbsp Greek yogurt)

    I want to be sure i don’t over do it in certain areas. I haven’t been able to find out the recommended amount of grams needed per day.

    Anyway, thank you for posting all your yummy foods and good information!

    • Hi Heather-
      Thank you for your comments and congrats on giving Paleo eating a try. Don’t be afraid of fat, I know it can seem illogical at the beginning, but your body needs fat. I would like to know what foods you ate, not only the nutritional analysis. Also, are you trying to lean out or put on muscle mass? What are your goals? Do you have any health concerns? Your fat intake only corresponds to 35 % of your calories, which is definitely not too much, although your meal seems a bit high in calories and carbs, but again that depends on your personal objectives. Please give me more details and I will try to help you. You can email me at adietitiangonepaleo [at] gmail [dot] com.
      Take care!
