    Paleo Diet


    Giving this diet a try in the next couple of weeks(after I read this The Paleo Solution, Robb Wolf, Book - Barnes & Noble) and would like to hear everybody's success with it thus far. Plan on doing the basic meat/fruit/nuts/tuber route for 3months as I transition into my cutting cycle. Feel free to post you daily meal plan if you would like.

    Are you cutting out whey/casein shakes as well since they're not Paleo.

    Are you going straight whole-foods or are you adding in egg proteins?

    I have used a modified Paleo for about 2 years now and it's been great for my immune system (I haven't been sick once during this time).

    I plan on including all wholefood sources including eggs(though these will be limited based on diet variety) at the moment. What kind of modifications did you make to the diet??

    Technically, green beans aren't Paleo, but I eat a can a day. I also use the aforementioned whey/casein shakes. I use a hybrid of Paleo principles along with low PRAL carbs. Outside of fruits and potatoes, I also use organic Basmati rice as its PRAL is very low.

    Interesting. Do you also include yogurt with it's low acid load and how many servings of fruit are you consuming a day?

    I'll throw in some Greek yogurt when I find it on sale, but it's not a staple. I get at least 2-3 servings of fruit per day and 3-4 servings of vegetables. My list is usually this:

    Apples
    Bananas
    Pineapple
    Raisins
    Green Beans
    Broccoli
    Tomatoes/Tomato Sauce

    The science and theory behind it seems to be keen and it's health aspect is really hard to argue against. I think the diet basically encompasses all the healthy aspects of the major diets known on the market.

    How long have you been following paleo? If you don't care, post up a daily food log that you randomly follow.

    ive been following it for 3-4 months. definitely can say that the results are real. im way leaner, heal faster, stomach is never upset, sunburn heals overnight, seasonal allergies are gone. basically its a diet to decrease overall inflammation in the body.

    daily eating is like this:

    1) 6-8 eggs (pasture), 4 pieces of bacon, half avocado, steak from night before, all scrambled in half a stick of organic butter. red mashed potatoes if worked out the night before

    2) 40 gram whey shake OR can of wild salmon + baby carrots/tomato/fruit

    3) huge spinach + brocolli salad with about a pound of baked chicken drumsticks, all soaked in about 6-7 tbs of ex virg. olive oil

    4) can of wild salmon, fruit/baby carrots/etc

    5) postworkout: 40 grams whey, 3 bananas or equivalent (bananas/berries = 50/50 glucose to fructose ratio)

    6) dinner: pound of flank/sirloin/top round steak, red potatoes mashed in butter+garlic, half of avocado, more vegetables if there is any room.

    7) tablespoon of Coconut oil before sleep

    Supplements:

    beta carotene, powder esther C, liquid E, D3, Maca

    beta alanine, creatine mono on w/o days

    sleep aid: L-tryptophan, GABA

    Excellent feedback Anton, thanks. That seems like a high cal assortment, are you using it for bulk or maintaining?

    I'm all for Paleo. I've started following the diet loosely about 2 years ago. Despite not being entirely committed, I noticed results. I dove in and gave up all grains shortly thereafter, and noticed dramatic increases in everything performance. More energy, better workouts, faster recovery, and most importantly to my goals at the time, a leap in performance.

    I'm a big fan of Robb Wolf, and attended one of his nutrition certifications some months ago. My favorite part about Robb is his belief in REAL WORLD results. He has taken athletes and completely transformed them with the simplicity of the Paleo diet. Top notch guy, and I follow his diet advice to a T.

    There really isn't a reason to go for it! As you can see, I'm excited to see the interest in something that has worked so well for myself and my friends. Definitely go for it.

    I do make exceptions however - I am not 100%. I often eat at a chow hall (active duty), and I go with a protein shake post workout coupled with either sweet potato or coconut water for carbohydrate.

    maintenance. i have an ecto bodytype so metabolism is super fast. plus I do mma (bjj/muay thai) sometimes up to 5 days a week so I burn an insane amount of calories. for me to gain anymore weight it would take an ungodly amount of food haha

    Yeah, the guy seems to have the science to back it up(at least from the brief excerpt I read from the book). I'm looking forward to reading the whole book next week.

    Not sure exactly how I want to structure my carbs with the meal plans yet. I'm planning on keeping it mainly fruits and veggies as per the original Paleo diet. I may throw in sweet potatoes and/or yams as a source of pre/post workout carbohydrate sources for performance reasons. Just have to delve into it further and structure it as I see fit.

    A doctor recommended Paleo diet to me recently, but said that the key was to NOT eat too much meat.

    He was saying to stay with 4 oz a DAY or less. Or eat a lot of meat one day a week and very little on other days.

    The rationale for this is the idea, taken from existing hunter/gatherer societies, that our ancestors only went hunting every week or 2, and most of the time didn't eat meat.

    You cannot eat that small amount of meat. There's no way you'd make up for the caloric deficit from lowered carbs.

    True, sounds like the doctor was stressing A LOT MORE fruits and veggies on the diet. Adversely, I say the opposite is true as well. Hunter/Gathers experienced different eating patterns based on seasons. Winter/Fall weather, diets where predominately protein/fat while Spring/Summer it probably balanced out to a more Omnivorous eating style. The concept of the diet is to "mimic" the way our ancestors ate by or food choice, not necessarily the food pattern or how they ate it. If that where the case then we would be self inducing starvation during periods of the year which is the exact opposite of basis of the diet.

    Thanks for commenting.

    Did he offer any other rationale other then mimetic of their eating patterns? Paleo also has guidelines for specific macro ratio's in general...which is why I'm asking.

    I think the rationale has something to do with the fact that protein is not stored by the body if it's not needed, and only about 4 oz a day are needed.

    So the rest of the protein has to be broken down for energy or for storage as fat, and that liberates the nitrogen which comes off as uric acid, which can cause gout and isn't generally good for you.

    There were other reasons too, metabolic ones, but I can't recall them at the moment.

    Out of curiosity, how old is he? That pattern of thinking is very outdated and all research has shown that high protein diets are safe and may only cause issues in those with pre-existing kidney issues.

    yes in a sedetary individual there is only a very small difference in protein thats broken down versus how much is re-synthesized. therefore the daily requirement for someone who doesnt exercise is very low. however for the active individual, protein breaks down at a much higher rate and to avoid a negative nitrogen balance (catabolism) we consume essential amino acids (protein). i mean this is a modified version of the paleo diet, for athletes. you can find more information on this at nutrition & metabolism journal, few good articles on there.

    nuts dont contain any omega 3 and all omega 6. for optimal health we require a 1:1 ratio of om3 to om6. in paleo diets nuts are usually consumed in moderation. grassfed beef contains 1:1, fish is usually loaded with om3.

    the doctor is on the right track, eliminating grains/sugars/dairy. for someone who doesnt exercise, 4 oz of meat is probably ok..with some fruit and a good amount of fat he can probably get to 2000 calories, which is enough for a non active person.

    I agree that the body maintains a certain level of protein for inclusion into the Amino Acid pool. In general, IIRC the average recommendation for protein replenishment for AA pool turnover is around 60-70gr/day for the average person. Not much, but it would be hard to reach that level with just 4oz of meat a day(say roughly 20-25gr). You would have to make sure that your other food selections where fairly well nourished with protein sources as well.

    As has been said, the active person with higher levels of stress and exercise would need a little more protein to offset catabolic and chemical reactions triggered by physical activity. Nice to hear your doc speaking about the diet in a logical sense though.

    check out www.marksdailyapple.com, guy wrote a book about this and has a very active website. all kinds of stuff like recipes, vibrams, sprint workouts, enough paleo-friendly biochemistry to fill up a few books.

    Funny, but serious question. Is that why cavemen had ugly teeth, from lack of calcium? where does the calcium come from in this diet??

    Broccoli, can salmon, leafy vegtables(kale has more calcium per oz then milk), Almonds(and a large assortment of other nuts) all have abundant amounts of calcium. No lack of it on the diet.....

    No one knows what caveman teeth looked like. Those are just arts and drawings and stereotypical pictures. If they did have rotten teeth though, I'm sure it was due to lack of a toothbrush.

    Eggs, green beans, and broccoli all have sufficient amounts of calcium in them though.

    those teeth were also used to chew a variety of rough wild berries/twigs, gnaw on bones. they didnt have a way to brush, besides eating vegetables that help keep your teeth clean. finally, teeth are somewhat vulnerable by design, enamel deteriorates over time leaving the tooth to rot.

    also, paleo diet is a little difficult in the first week. because of the rapid carb depletion you will feel what people call "low carb flu". body is just switching to oxidize more fats for energy. plus without grains there is no big fluctuation in blood sugar. make sure to cut grains entirely, it will ease the process.

    The first 10 days or so are awful. I always feel lethargic and drag big time.

    i plan on cutting out all grains at once but wouldn't the carbs from the fruit(albeit not as many carbs) help the carb depletion? the menu plan i have laid out has fruit for 3 out the 6 meals and veggies in the last 3.

    Somewhat, but there's still a precipitous drop in carb consumption.

    i will be sitting at around 125g of carbs for the day. Too many or too little? I cannot find anything really definitive.
