    Banana's are pretty high in carbs, I would check your daily totals to make sure you are at a 60/30/10 ratio. (fat/protein/carb)

    It's hard to say...

    Are you gaining fat or muscle? You need to measure body fat to know. Even then, it may be NEITHER:

    Salt and fluid intake can EASILY cause your weight to change by more than two pounds IN A SINGLE DAY. A high salt intake (bacon and sausage, for example) will cause your body to take on additional water to keep your electrolyte levels in balance. Lower your salt intake and your body will purge the extra water weight as well. I've see a big, salty meal cause my weight to jump by 3.5 pounds in 24 hours. 24 hours after that 2 of those pounds were already gone again.

    Not necessarily. Some meats are very high in salt - usually added during curing or to enhance flavor, others aren't. I make omelets for my family every morning: 2 eggs, ham, onions and cheese. Almost all the salt comes from the cheese with a little more from the ham. I don't salt the omelets. Sometimes I use bacon instead of ham -- then the salt content tends to be quite high and I can definitely tell the difference.

    Same thing with other primal foods. I usually use unsalted nuts although MOST nuts at the store that aren't in-the-shell are loaded down with salt (and often use oils and flour as a binder to get it to stick). You have to watch for that.

    In any case, a primal diet does not need to be high in salt -- in fact, Grok probably didn't have much salt in his diet unless he ate a lot of seafood.
