    Shop Now
    Hi All,

    Well basically I had my first primal breakfast, well ummmm maybe,
    If someone could put me on the right track would be much appreciated

    My breccky

    sauteed zucchini and marinara mix in garlic butter
    added a splash of lemon juice and some cream and gently
    sauteed til cooked.

    Served with a slice of fried tomato and some avocado slices

    Now it was to die for, lick the plate kind. Have I done this right
    or is it to much fat for losing weight.

    Would love some answers

    Cheers

    Are you a vegetarian? Where's your protein?

    On this plan - if you're trying to lose fat, you need to eat fat; the more the better. Do you have a fitday account? It might help to track your meals on fitday at first to get a feel for your ratios - you should aim for AT LEAST 50% fat though many will recommend more for fat loss. 60% fat / 30% protein / 10% carbs.

    No such thing as "too much fat." But I see a lot of carbs there.
    Primal eating in a nutshell: If you are hungry, eat Primal food until you are satisfied (not stuffed). Then stop. Wait until you're hungry again. Repeat.

    Thank you,

    I thought marinara mix was protein, fish, calamari,mussels,prawns.
    Sorry for my ignorance, zucchini and tomato carbs.
    cream and butter fats.

    I really need something to put this into perspective for me, might have to check
    out fitday.

    Marinara mix is tomato sauce with spices in it. You're talking about something that is a fish dish with marinara sauce on it. Not the same thing.

    Couchie probably uses a different definition of marinara:
    Marinara originally meant "of the sea" (hence the Latin root "mar"), it got mangled into the traditional red sauce because the original had the day's catch cooked in a tomato sauce. As it moved from the coast, people removed the seafood, leaving it meatless, but kept the name. Thus, meatless marinara as we know it.
    Couchie-
    I don't know abt fitday, but myplate at livestrong.com works really well for me. It'll even give you your ratios in a pie chart off the one side as you add items.

    Ah, ok. Good to know.
    If you can handle dairy and eat nightshades, that's a pretty good meal. As Griff noted, squash and tomato can be a bit carb heavy, so you'd probably wanna be fairly carnivorous or VLC the rest of the day. Fairly fat heavy the rest of the day too.

    Fitday.com does a more comprehensive breakdown of your nutrients and stuff. And it's much less cluttered.

    Here's a good source for you: http://www.nutritiondata.com/tools/nutrient-search

    You can put in a search for "highest in fat" and "lowest in carbohydrates" and it will give you a list of items that match the criteria. Low carb veggies are generally the leafy greens and dark green veggies.
