  • Meal frequency ...

    Hi, I want to know your primal meals frequencies when you want to lose weight ? For me it looks like this:

    1-Eat a Mammoth for breakfast
    2-Eat a sabre tooth tiger for diner
    3-Eat a squirrel for supper
    4-After that, water or tea only.

    *All meal are with veggies, and are base on Primal blueprint paleo list.

    Mine is a little different but similar

    1- eat a mammoth for breakfast
    2- eat a squirrel for lunch
    3- make love with a sabretoothed tiger after dinner
    4- water for rehydration after 3 above.

    ps - my sabretooth tiger is paleo as well.

      Breakfast - nothing, except maybe tea
      Lunch - nothing
      Dinner - everything! Then a 20 - 23 hour fast. Pound of meat, half-a-pot of coffee with a cup of coconut milk mixed (420 calories) in, maybe mushrooms, usually eggs, maybe a tin of fish, usually at least one avocado, some berries, dark chocolate, sometimes a sweet potato (though not lately), other Primal fare as exists. Sometimes I have an apple or two or an avocado three or four hours after dinner on break at work.

      That's for fat loss, though. Now that I've done that, I'm adding muscle and often eat two meals a day, one like normal and another that's basically just a protein bomb.

        Typically:
        B: Small portion of meat (100g), couple of eggs, vegetables & espresso
        L: Massive salad (MDA style) with a good portion of meat (i.e. 200g)
        D: Large portion of meat, med/large servings of starch (depending on workout/non workout day) & lots of vegetables

        I use to IF (16/8) for body composition, now going for overall health, energy levels and strength.

          B: usually a protein shake made with 1/2c heavy cream, around 700-800 cals total
          L: often IF or something small (apple with cheese, meat, leftovers from dinner, etc)
          D: meat & veggies, usually moderate sized meal. 4-6 oz meat, the other half of plate is veggies

          If I'm still hungry at the end of the day and have calories left that need filling, I'll have a crio bru or tea with heavy cream

          If I'm hungry, I eat. If I'm not, I don't. I just track my cals & carbs and try to fit everything in together

            No typical day, I'm afraid. I eat when hungry and usually ask myself "are you SO hungry you're willing to hunt or scavenge meat?" before having meat in large amounts. I'm ALWAYS hungry enough to forage veg, so I just eat that when I like and try and keep it seasonal.

              I eat alot. I stick to primal and eating right for my blood type.

              I eat about 6 times a day. Never feel full really but always satisfied. Metabolism is constantly stoked.

                Wackadoodle schedule here.

                When I'm "bad" (in all ways - exercise, grains, sugars, etc.) I'm trolling for a tiger 3 or more times a day.

                When I'm "good" I tend towards one tiger for either breakfast or dinner and sometimes a few sardines for lunch.

                No mammoths ever.

                  It takes at least 24 to 36 hours for the food you eat to affect metabolism.
                  Stoking your metabolism by eating small, frequent meals is more CW hogwash, brought to you by the same bunch who preach about "heart healthy" whole grains.

                    Amen brother. Stop worrying about how much you eat. Just eat the right types of food and it'll all work out. Eat more food = have more useable energy. Eat wrong food = have to work out like a SOB to not shunt to storage AND = less useable energy.

                    For those who say it's all a matter of thermodynamics - bunk. I'm also an aerospace engineer and the simple thermodynamic equation everyone quotes doesn't take into account a system with variable energy storage and fluid retention.

                      its not nearly as much CW hogwash as you think. All my clients create a food diary for me. From this you actually find that most are under eating (regardless of goals). Once they start eating more they lose more weight. I wouldnt recommend this for people who want to IF but to those who dont regular primal meals work. Each to their own. I am by no means a finished article but as someone who has gained or lost weight (depending on how I was testing my body to respeond to different training) I have never eaten less, just altered the nutrient balance of the meals. I am happy to bow down to those who know more than me, but I have converted my clients to primal and this way of thinking (many tried to eat 3 meals but ended up snacking on the wrong things limiting results) and it works for them.

                      I have a long ways to go until I reach ideal weight etc but as someone who was the fit skinny kid, I am now 6'1 205 and 8%bf. like I said a long ways to go, but heading the right way. I would be happy to discuss how eating 3 meals like some above would be more benificial. Not being arsie, I would happily discuss this further, always happy to learn.

                        Richardmac: I agree with you when it comes to meal frequency...as you said, to each his own. While I am by no means an expert, the more I read and learn about nutrition and fitness, the more I learn that there is no one-size-fits-all approach. Yes, there are sound underlying principles to follow, such as PB, but in the end you have to find what works for you and you alone.

                        As for myself, I prefer eating about four meals a day with a small snack thrown in on occasion. Due to my work and training/racing schedules, eating only rarely during the day, regardless of meal size, doesn't work well for me.

                        And just to be clear, I tend to follow a solid 85/15 approach when it comes to PB/Paleo nutrition and my weight, energy levels, and other factors are well within healthy, desired limits.

                          When I eat fully paleo with higher fat (70%, with 20% protein, 10% carbs), there is no way I could eat that many meals.
                          Unless you are eating very small meals?? What are your macros?

                          I only just upped the fats to 70% this week, and my fat seems to be melting away (official weigh in tomorrow) and I also feel amazing. Today I have not needed to eat much at all, as I am just not hungry, and I still have tons of energy.
                          But I have been eating 1 smaller meal and 1 larger meal this week, apart from today.
                          I do have 100 lbs to lose though, and am not working out hard, just walking around 5 km each day, with things like squats, and pushups around my house when I think of it.

                            I hope it keeps working for you my friend. What do you race in?

                            I am trying to make my diet better. We all know its an ever evolving thing as we continue to learn what fats/protiens etc our bodies like best. I have just posted a thread in the 'Nutrition' section talking about a desire to try 4 meals a day. I actually posted what I ate yesterday if you facny checking it out.

                            I eat really small meals. It has worked for me, but not for everyone I know.

                              I eat really small meals. It has worked for me, but not for everyone I know.
                              Up until May of last year I was focusing on half- and full marathons, whittling away at my goal of a sub-3:00 marathon. Then I was promoted at work. While this is a good thing it threw my work schedule, and thus personal life, upside-down in many ways. I have had to scale back my training and racing, so now I focus on 5K's and 10K's.

                              I'll be sure to check out your other thread in the "Nutrition" section and post a reply there.

                              I too eat smaller meals, depending on appetite; I simply try to listen to my body. If I'm ravenous after a particularly hard workout, I'll eat more than if it is a rest day. Ebb and flow, ebb and flow...
