    Primal Fuel


    Not soy!


    Here are some foods that I eat, sorted from maximum protein to lowest. This isn't the full chart, but you can figure the meat products have no carbs, the dairy have some. I'll put the whole chart up via link when I do a thread on my VHP diet.


    As you can see, it isn't easy to minimize the fat. So don't worry about not getting enough.


    Maybe an all scallops diet, anyone?

    I&#39;m not avoiding them, try as I might.


    It&#39;s simple. A gram of fat has almost 3 times the calories of protein after accounting for TEF (thermal effect of food.)


    By keeping my protein up to 50-60% of calories I find that my hungers are pretty much gone. I can go much further after eating, I&#39;ve found.


    Note that despite best efforts, fats will still be 40-50% of the diet. If you eat animals, you will get fats.

    So you don&#39;t follow the high fat primal diet anymore? have you found something wrong with it?

    Yeah. I couldn&#39;t lose weight even at the same calorie levels. I was stuck on a plateau for two months, no matter what I tried.


    Now I am losing weight again and I&#39;m hardly ever hungry. Fat really isn&#39;t any better than carbs when it comes to satiety.

    I&#39;m assuming this person means that the fat present in the meats consumed will bump the fat content up to 50% or more so it otherwise watching fat. Just my guess but I would like clarification also.

    How dare you, OTB!


    Jk, well glad to hear it&#39;s working for you!


    I&#39;m eating tons of fat lately and though I, too, seemed to have hit a plateau, I feel better.


    I have yet to try a zero-carb diet. If that doesn&#39;t do it for me, I&#39;ll probably have a go at your VHP. How long do you plan on sticking to it? Are you ever going back to high fat?


    Great list, by the way.

    Thanks OTB, I think I&#39;m also going to give your high protein approach a try - seems to work better for me when I eat more protein than fat.

    Mmm I love the dark turkey meat, much tastier than breast!


    OTB, I dont know how many calories you&#39;re aiming for a day, but 50-60% cals from protein, would that make it around 350g+ of protein a day? I struggle to get a modest amount even though I have some form of meat/eggs/fish with every meal and occasional whey supp in between. How do you fit it all in??

    Del Mar Mel: I think a "Welcome!" is in order, I don&#39;t recall seeing you post before. Yes, you are correct in your assumption. Sources like grains and fruit, of course, have no fat. But if one&#39;s diet is mostly animal sources, fat comes along. Exceptions, of course are non-fat dairy and some sea food. I thought it interesting that the much vaunted shrimp is no better than poultry breast.


    I, too, much prefer dark meat. Always have. But I&#39;ve actually grown to like the light stuff, too.


    I&#39;m aiming for 2000 cals/day or less. My protein intake, as mentioned in another thread, is typically 200 grams a day, plus or minus. I&#39;ll stay on this until I get my weight down to 200 pounds with some days off. "Off" meaning more typical PB, higher fats. Not carbs!
