Hi Guys! (sorry cant seem to figure out how to put this in a more appropriate place, hopefully someone can enlighten me, but for now i guess have pity on a technologically unsaavy paleo aspirer ... )
My name is Luke, and i am relatively new to the paleo lifestyle. I am feeling uneasy about all these criteria, and am wondering if i am getting the hang of it or not. I workout about 5 to 6 times a week, usually calisthenics along with three or four runs (maye 1 or 2 HIIT sessions thrown in). Anyways, the point being i am active. I dont thin i am the first person to say i really want to get lean and mean for the beach this summer ... If i had to guess i would say my BFP were somewhere around 11 percent (153 pounds, 5 foot 9)...anyways, i hope this is not sabotaging the thread, but does this look like a good pale sample day? Mistakes? Additions? Subtractions? Any help would be appreciated Thanks !
Breakfast: 3 eggs in olive oil with some broccoli and mushrooms thrown in and half an avocado
Post Workout: scoop of whey protein in almond milk, 2 tbsp of almond butter, 2 cups of raw spinach, half a banana, and (gulp) a serving of yogurt
Dinner: 4 oz of chicken with onion broccoli and spinach (cooked in butter)
is it enough calories?
too little fat?
too few carbs? I dont have a scale, so how do you guys measure vegetables (this in particular is stressing me out because i am aiming for around 100 grams but seem a bit oblivious as to how much i am consuming)
Anyway, as you can see, as a noobie, i am stressing hard haha..

Hey Luke Welcome!
You'll get more responses if you start a new thread. Maybe the Meet and Greet forum - Meet and Greet | Mark's Daily Apple Health and Fitness Forum page - see on the left where it says + Post New Thread?
The list of all the forums is here in case you want to post in Nutrition or Fitness instead. Good luck with your beach body
Fresh green peas and green beans. Because those are fresh green foods and have not gone through the process of ripening and drying that imparts the phytates ans lectins.
Pea protein is not a fresh green food though, nor derived from it.
It's from ripe, dried peas... essentially the same as dried beans.
But we all choose what we find acceptable.
And in small amounts it's likely not a big deal.
To each their own.
I don't have an issue with eggs, so I'll stick with homemade mayo, with cultured whey.
Duck fat/eggs makes a particularly tasty mayo!
(local natural pastured duck and eggs)

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