  • How Does this look?

    bfast: 4 whole eggs(hardboiled)
    snack: handful of walnuts
    lunch: grilled chicken breast salad with olive oil, broccoli, red peppers, cauliflower, mushrooms,
    snack: peach, handful of walnuts
    dinner: grilled chicken breast, broccoli
    snack: (post workout) 1 scoop whey, 1/2 cup wild blueberries, 2 tbsp ground flaxseeds, 1 small banana

    Is this acceptable to be called Primal?

    first, what are your goals? are you obese working mainly towards weight loss? are you looking to bulk up? whats your current weight? how old are you? do you exercise? do you take vitamins or supplements? what kind?

    that meal plan is primal, yes, but its missing fat. a good place to start is to have at least half of your calories come from fat.
    good sources of fats include:
    butter
    coconut oil
    lard
    beef tallow

    Do you eat beef? if not, start today! Purchase clean meat (no antibiotics or hormones) and preferably grass-fed to balance out the omega-6s from your walnuts. Eat clean, grassfed organs like liver and heart too. have fun with it!

    Purchase wild salmon and other wild, oily fish. wild caught shrimp, scallops, lobster, etc are also insanely delicious

    all the need for snacking is probably due to hunger from the lack of fat. eat more at meal time and the need for constant snacking will be eliminated.

      Needs more fat. May eventually wanna ditch some of the walnuts. Other than that, looks good.
      Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

        Why you planning to snack? Most people eat 1 to 3 times daily.

        Make your meals more interesting, these are quite bland. JUST EGGS FOR BREAKFAST? I would be eating sausage and plenty of bacon aswell!

        Look at the recipes for ideas.

        My favourites include, liver and onions, slow cooked meat from a crock pot, salmon and always enjoy a curry!

          your meal plan is decidedly lacking bacon.

            26 yrs old, 185lbs 5'11, trying lose midsection fat. saw this lifestyle and it looked amazing. what is the main use of the coconut oil? have wild salmon in the fridge for tomorrow. I was only snacking because i am so used to 6 small meals per day from weight lifting. exercise 5-6 days per week.

                You sound like someone approaching nutrition from the angle of a bodybuilder. Grilled chicken, the king of meats. Hardly. As was stated in the other thread (where you still ought to be, I think), you need to eat beef and other meats. Fatty meats.

                And yes, for the love of Joe Pesci, don't plan on snacking!! That "6 small meals a day" thing is horseshit.
                You lousy kids! Get off my savannah!

                  Turkeys can't produce bacon: that stuff is made in a lab. If you're going to eat bacon, eat stuff cut from a nice fatty land animal. Otherwise, forego this yummy indulgence.
                  Started PB late 2008, lost 50 lbs by late 2009. Have been plateaued, but that thing may just be biting the dust: more on that later.

                    Bacon and coconut oil are great sources of saturated fat.

                      All that snacking will interrupt the fat loss you seek. You need an empty dietary fuel tank for your body to switch over to the body fat fuel tank. It burns fat as fuel after other fuel sources are depleted. Cut out two snacks and one meal then just eat better when you do. That's my 2 cents.

                        this is worth a lot more than 2 cents! Solid advice.

                            While I agree with everything everyone has thus far stated, particularly regarding bacon, I also want to add...

                            it's pretty damned good for just starting out. Good job. Don't let the comments peeve you - that's 500% better than oatmeal and a 5-hour energy drink. Continue to learn, read this site front to back and you'll have your answers and see the logic in what the folks said.
