    Critique my menu please..

    Desperately trying to get the scale to budge... This week (Saturday) I started paleo AIP plan (auto immune) and I cut dairy and caffine ...science experiment to see where I end up... I already know I was eating too many calories in the neighborhood of 18-2500 a day. Here's what I'm doing now...does it look good bad indifferent? Also since cutting dAiry I find I can go a lot longer between meals like breakfast to dinner without a problem...

    Breakfast
    1 small chicken thigh (5oz)
    .5 tbsp butter
    2oz left over chuck steak
    1 tbsp coconut oil in decaf tea

    Lunch 1 cup spinach with diced onion and 2 button mushrooms an garlic
    1 tbsp olive oil

    Drank 38 oz water and another cup of tea liquid stevia

    Dinner 8-10 oz rump roast
    1 tbsp olive oil
    Roasted mushrooms (3)
    Roasted onion (1/2)

    And I stole a couple slices of gluten/ hormone free pepperoni from my kiddos (5 slices)

    I'm getting 1390 calories 96 fat 98 protein 9 carbs...
    Should I see results on this? It's weird how much less hungry I am and I'm having trouble sleeping...

    What is your height/weight, how much are you trying to lose and what kind of exercise do you do?

    Also, you are close to zero carbs -- that will be tough.

    I didn't see any big ass salad Mark refers to, but lots of fats. 5 tbsp butter and tbsp coconut oil in one meal, without nutritional greens, or maybe a few blackberries. Some spinach for lunch,but absent was meat. Stevia is controversial, so no comment, on that. Your meat calorie count matched your fat. I would try meat, salad, then fat, in that ratio, add in some low carb fruits, like berries. Check out Mark's nutrition page. Key for me was bringing carbs down to 50g the day, go through carb flue and then weight just vanishes. Good luck

    You dont eat enough. Even if you are female and pretty small 1400 calories is probably not enough.

    What you do eat looks fine, spinach, mushrooms, onion, steak, coconut oil is all decent.
    Chicken not so much if you eat lots of it switch to either beef or lamb.
    Many things are missing however, most importants are :
    -Vegetables like tomatoes, salad, all kind of green and colored vegetables
    -Fish
    -Some fruits
    -Eggs
    -Potatoes or Sweet Potatoes

    So you arent eating enough and lots of important things are missing. Solution is easy, incooperate
    the above mentioned things and you will be fine.

    I'm 5'5 158lbs I lift 2-3x a week heavy weights and was doing cardio but I'm forgoing that for an hour walk a day..

    In regards to 5 tablespoons of butter lol it was .5 or 1/2 a tbsp

    And I'm trying to be keto.. I'm going to add in some veggies at breakfast having a big omelette tomorrow...
    I didn't lose weight at higher calorie ranges I'm really trying...

    I'm debating doing like an apple and almond butter for lunch? Then protein and fat veggies at night?

    1. Eat more, this isn't a diet. More meat, more fat, more veggies.

    I would say you are not going to have success on ketosis because you are:

    -female, of a moderate weight
    -younger ('86)
    -lifting


    Go higher carb low fat. Eat enough protein. Lift heavy. You will lose weight.
