    What does 1900-2000 calories/day look like on Paleo diet

    Primal Fuel
    I'm having a hard time getting above 1500 calories so I'd like to solicit some feedback from you on what you 1900 calorie + daily menu looks like to get ideas. I've lost very little doing Paleo over the last month because I suspect I'm flirting with starvation mode.

    Thanks,
    Molly

    4 eggs with coconut oil, and greek yogurt with apple for breakfast

    Salad with a number of vegetables, about 5 oz of meat, and some olive oil for lunch

    dinner with a big piece of meat, sometimes fattier cuts like ground beef and then a potato with butter

    snacks include a handful of nuts, glass of whole milk

    if you want to keep track of what you eat, just go to cronometer.com and plug it in. that's a great way to determine what's going in

    My sample day of 1966 calories consumed (gross). The day's activity was Les Mills Body Flow.

    Breakfast: 1 tbsp heavy cream in my coffee, 2 HB eggs, Greek yogurt, a few strips of bacon and a green apple

    "Lunch": coffee with another tbsp of heavy cream

    Dinner: Sauteed vegetables and fresh pork sausage, a piece of leftover pork loin, some cheese, banana, 2 dark chocolate truffles

    Total macros: 120g fat, 130g carbs, 99g protein (or a 54/26/20% F/C/P split)

    I'm 27, female, 157lbs (<25% BF). This was a PMS-induced "refeed" day carbs-wise, after a full week of being under 70 a day.

    200 calories, 200 ways:

    What Does 200 Calories Look Like?



    The short answer is it will vary wildly based on the fat content of the meal. The fattier the portion, the smaller the portion. Very calorically dense things: nuts, cheeses, chocolate, dried fruits. Those are some of the biggest stallers of weight loss. Of course, the most calorically dense thing a human being can consume is pure, rendered fat.

    About 2000 calories:

    Breakfast
    2 cups cubed chicken breast
    1 sweet potato

    Snack
    Chocolate (half a bar)

    Lunch
    Panda express-type teriyaki grilled chicken with a side of vegetables

    Before dinner
    3oz cheese

    Dinner
    12 oz wine
    6oz salmon
    vegetables
    sweet potato

    Dessert
    Chocolate (half a bar)

    Skip the chocolate, cheese and wine and you've got a good weight loss diet. Replace it with butter/fat on the potatoes and vegetables and maybe have some larger portions at lunch or fattier meats and you've got a much better diet.

    How does having a large list of pictures of dozens of foods in 200 calorie portions, allowing the OP to make a menu easily simply based on looking at the foods with whatever combination they so desire help them?
