    Can someone elaborate on how fruit should be handled with this diet?

    Welcome Alex! I'd go easier on the fruit. Berries are good fruit but that's really too much fructose, which goes straight to fat.

    Ground turkey is fine. I'd emphasize beef but turkey is ok too.

      Should one consider keeping fruits to be almost sort of a "treat" in their diet? As in only have it sparingly and with caution?

        Welcome neighbor! I'm in the Corning/Elmira area.

        Personally, I'd say not too worry too much about fruit and whatnot just yet, until you're consistently grain-free and eating only Primal foods. If you don't see any changes with just doing that, or you hit a plateau, or gain then I would consider tweaking the diet further. One step at a time, in my opinion.

        Foods look good. Don't be afraid of red meat and fat, unless you really like turkey burgers in which case no harm there either. It takes a little while but you'll find your groove, what foods you like and don't, and how much is too much or not enough. It just takes time and well... practice.

          If I were eating that I'd be really hungry because of the lack of fat. You might be different, but keep that in mind.

            I'll be getting plenty of fat too from other sources!

              Other than the fruit, is my balance of nuts, meat, and veggies ok? Should I beat eating more of anything?
              Many of us eat some berries every day, but usually just a few once a day. Berries are excellent. You don't need to reserve them for a treat. Bananas, on the other hand, maybe should be reserved for days when you are doing some bouldering or other heavy exercise.

              Veg is controversial. Some of us eat lots, other few or none. If you cut back on fruit, I would say you would need more veg. You need to find out what works for you.

                My comment would be that your protein intake seems high; from what you posted it was about 190g in one day? I would personally look at substituting more fats and veggies.
