    FAT and PROTEIN

    Shop Now
    Hi!
    I am new to paleo - two weeks in and I am feeling good, but consuming so much fat, is that going to make me fat?

    I have always had a low carb way of eating and I have been gluten and dairy free for years, but always limited my fat consumption.

    Also, I am very very active, how much protein should I be consuming?

    Thanks, newbie to Paleo!

    Yes, you will soon grow fat and die, but you will die happy.

    I take it you did not read the PB? It sort of addresses all that.

    If you are active and working out about 1g / lb or 2g/kg of lean body weight seems to the average recommendation. If you are trying to put on a lot of muscle or are pregnant/lactating I would up that a bit.
    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

    How in the world do you eat low carb and low fat?
    The chicken breast diet?

    Yes yes...fat make you fat. That was actually the thesis that the PB was built on.

    I don't think there's any reason to make facetious responses to someone's post. This is a place for people to ask questions, don't mock them. We all thought fat made us fat at one point, remember where you came from.

    i can no longer take this forum seriously, for a multitude of reasons (bad questions, jack kruse cult, random crap). it's like the wild west on here. i say mock away. this thing is attached to a searchable blog you know... look something up before posting.

    I just don't understand the point in mocking someone if the question is such a waste of time? It makes no sense, if it's a bad question just ignore it and let someone else answer it... Asking questions is how people learn.

    And to clarify, I don't think the OP is asking if eating fat will make her fat, but rather if eating too much fat could make her gain weight.


    So, to answer your question, yes - eating too much of anything will make you gain weight. However, integrating saturated fat (meat, butter, olive oil, coconut oil, avocados) into your diet is nothing that you should fear - it is healthy for you. Watch your calories and you will lose weight.
