    What kind of opinions are you looking for, exactly? Do you have a goal in mind?

    You appear to be eating better than most people. I'm guessing meals 3 and 4 are shakes? If you're working out heavily you should be able to eat more fruit/sweet potatoes, and you could eat more veggies in general. Your fats & proteins look great

      Well that certainly is a diet comprised of food. Yep.

        Well! Primary goal is strength while more or less maintaining the same body weight. Currently following Wendler's 5 3 1 four days a week and 2-3 times a week of HIT cardio.

        Red wine 1-2 glasses ( Merlot, bordeaux, Pinot Noir ) with 90-100% 1-2 chunks dark chocolate on weekends.
        A slice or two of authentic pizza, small cup of gelato and a tiramisu with an antipasto salad once every two weeks.


        I guess I am having adequate amount of protein. What about my carb and fat levels?? Are they too low??

        Supplements :

        1 Multivitamin
        2 Vitamin D3
        3 Fish oil
        4 Magnesium
        5 Whey
        6 Dessicated liver.
        7 Brewers yeast.
        8 Raw Cacao

          Looks pretty good to me. I guess if you want to get all technical, you could plug everything in to fitday or nutritiondata, but if you're getting good results, why bother? If you're at 8% bodyfat I think you're doing pretty good. Is that you in your avatar? If so, you look freakin' ripped!

            Yes Sir!! that is indeed me in the avtaar pic. I was thinking of cutting the preworkout shake and maybe adding somthing like liver/gizzards( Really fond of organ meat ) with some celery and cucumbers there. Also planning to incorporate some sweet potato. What do you guys think??

              Do you need the multivitamin? I mean if you did plug what you're eating into Fitday - not that there's a need to - you'd probably find you're over the RDA on most nutrients, probably quite considerably over. people on Paleo/Primal usually are.

              I can see where the D3, fish oil, and Mg fit in. (And items 5,6,7, and 8 are just concentrated foods.) But what's the multivitamin doing besides making your urine a lot more expensive? If you're getting nutrients from your food ....

              Added to that, some of those vitamins will presumably be synthetic forms. That could mean, for example, (with C) a lot of ascorbic acid but none of the co-factors that occur with it in foods. It's said that one can actually be worse off taking a load of ascorbic acid, which is why some people take acerola instead.

                Sounds good. I think whole foods are in general better than supplements/powders (although if you read my post earlier today, you know that I'm contemplating BCAAs). I have added sweet potatoes/winter squash post-workout the past month or so and I'm getting really good results.

                  Solid meals are always good plus the satiety level is high upon their consumption as opposed to having just a protein shake. I am planning to add a moderate amount of sweet potato for dinner on my workout days. Other than that I am also planning on using coconut oil for cooking.

                  What do you guys think of Walnut and Almond oil for cooking???

                    Coconut oil, yes. Walnut and Almond, no. Nut oils are too high in polyunsaturated fats (too fragile) to use for cooking. Save them for salad dressings and other non-cooking uses. See Mark's post on oils.

                      Agree on the coconut oil. Eggs fried in coconut oil are amazing
