    A pound of ground meat...

    Primal Fuel
    I just added up what I've eaten today and realized I had a full pound of meat (ground turkey, 93/7)... According to the company website, that's a total of 88g protein, which doesn't seem like too much, but the idea of a lb of meat sounds like a lot to me. Did I overdo it today?

    In case it helps, the only other things I ate were an avocado, 2/3 cup pumpkin, and 2/3 cup tomato sauce (my calories are low today but I'm absolutely stuffed).

    If you are within your goals for calories and macros.... you are fine.

    And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.

    Yes, it's conventional turkey, which is why I bought lean. I'm a student and can't afford grass fed very often.

    Wasn't judging, just curious. Do you do dairy? I'd coat that stuff in gobs of grassfed butter if itvwas me.

    ^Brilliant.

    I go through about a pound of meat a day, too - a lb for salmon tonight, for example... Literally, I weighed it; 454g exactly. Fyea.

    At the moment, no dairy except ghee! But I absolutely looove heavy cream and miss it loads... debating whether to add it back or not

    I eat between 1-2lbs of meat a day (1.5 today actually). I actually consider 1 egg the equivalent of 1oz of meat when I do my mental arithmetic though. Works out to be roughly correct.

    I regularly eat a pound of meat plus some eggs in one meal. As long as you're not overdoing calories and macro goals, you're a-ok! Stop worrying.
