Sean, Nice time of this one. Good call with the scale too. Are you reading Good Calories, Bad Calories. Me, I am going more paleo too. Well, really it is protein, fat (no fried foods, transfat) and low glycemic carbs, about 100gms (11blocks a day). This works out to be paleo.
The book was good, but long. I skipped pgs 70-240 or so. I did not read all the stuff about how fat got a bad rap it did not deserve. I went right to the second half about calories. That blew me away and changed my views on how much carbs I really do need and how I really can eat all the PRO and FAT I want if I just watch my carb intake. Let me know what you thought.Oh, like I said...if I eat PRO, the best source is animal, fat (from animal, fish oil, nuts, avocados, low glycemic carbs that do not wreck my body and cause inflamation....I come up with eating a paleo diet. I am not convinced of the need to avoid dairy and salt though. Dairy, I do not see the problem if you are not allergic to the protein or if you do not have an issue with lactose (which I do not in moderate amounts). Salt, I love it. That is my current view. Also, I like my weight...about 170lbs and do not want to be any lighter, this seems to just come back around to a paleo based diet.
