    Looks good to me. Personally I would up the fat and drop some of the carbs, but everyone is different...

    Looks good. Really, everyone's needs are so different--you need to see what works for you. After 2 months Primal, I am still fine-tuning...

    Why only one egg in the morning? That seems like a lot of starch (sweet potato) and minimal protein to start the day. A breakfast I often have is three large eggs, half an avocado, and some salsa.

    How are you feeling and how is your weight loss? I'm still tweaking myself, and I've been doing this since September. You have to find the right balance of fats and fruit/veggie-based carbs for you to achieve your goals.

    More fat, less carbs.

    You "more fat, less carbs" guys... what is it that is off to you? Is a sweet potato and half a turnip really that big a deal?

    I know that isn't ideal as a daily food for some people, but this menu actually looks pretty spot on to me.

    There are a good deal of carbs in a sweet potato. Sounds very much like a SAD person saying, "Oh, this one cookie won't hurt. Everything in moderation, right?" Well sorry, but if you want to lose a substantial amount of fat, you can't eat starchy carbs. It's a fact. And if you don't want to get sick from some Kimkins like diet, you are going to need to eat a lot of fat.

    Like I said, "looks good to me", but I personally would up the fat and lower the carbs, because if I had avocado, sweet potato, veggies, more veggies, more veggies, and then veggies again, that would be too many carbs for me (especially w/an entire turnip included) and I wouldn't lose weight, and I'd probably be hungry a lot. The poster is trying to lose weight and not be hungry. Thought I'd give a little advice, and not just a pat on the back, is that okay?
