Doing well so far today, paleo-wise, except for 2tsp. of natural peanut butter this afternoon & soy patties this morning. I'm having serious peanut butter issues lately... I can't get enough of it. That and fruit, I'm going fruit crazy.

Breakfast - 2 fried eggs + 2 soy sausage patties + 12 almonds

Lunch - Leftover meat sauce with spaghetti squash (about 1/2c. spaghetti squash and about 1c. of meat sauce)

Snack - chicken drumstick + handful of blueberries + 7 blackberries + 2tsp. peanut butter

Dinner - 1 chicken thigh + 1/2c. roasted cauliflower + 9 almonds

Snack - 4 strawberries + 1 banana + 1/4c. blueberries + 6 pecans

Still haven't lost any weight, despite cutting out refined carbohydrates, and adding in meat. I'm also RAVENOUS most of the time, but I can't really up my protein intake (the meat is too expensive). I guess I need to start eating more veggies and filling up on that.

Hi Kate,

I found your blog here because you've linked to mine. Seeing your food log for today, I'm not surprised you're hungry, and haven't seen any body comp shifts. You've taken out your primary energy source (crappy carbohydrates) and replaced them with... nothing. You need to flip the switch and start burning fat as fuel, but you're not giving your body anywhere NEAR enough fat. Start eating more. Like, MORE. Plus, fat is muscle sparing, so you can get by on even less protein than you may think, as long as you have enough fat in your diet.

Give it a go for a few days and see how things feel.

Wow, thanks so much for checking out my blog, Melissa! :)

I will definitely give this a try! I love the idea of adding fat to my diet... it just scares me a little. I guess it's still hard to banish the "fat is bad" mentality.

I've been lurking on your 30 day paleo challenge posts and they are great! It was what finally helped to push me over the edge and take this on. I haven't made it official yet, but I'm working towards 100% paleo.
