I'm not so sure that the coach is going to tell the OP to cut carbs. He seems to be on the wrong diet track so far. If anything, she needs to ASK the coach what his future intentions are rather than following him blindly every day.
This menu is throwing a LOT of red flags. In fact, it seems to check off ALL the fat-retention boxes: too carby, too full of fake food, and may be too high in overall caloires. Three scoops of whey powder is excessive. Dairy is known to stall fat loss, and a cup of yogurt is a LOT of dairy. Oatmeal and rice are filler carbs and not good for much. Bananas and sweet potatoes are nice but you don't need that many carbs; maybe cut in half? Nuts are supposed to be great but I'm finding that they just stall metabolism. Too many snackies in between meals.
You should be eating three solid meals of fatty meats, eggs, more berries, more leafy greens, and get rid of all the non-veg carbs.
5'0" female, 43 years old. Started Primal October 31, 2011, at a skinny fat 111.5 lbs. Low weight: 99.5 lb on a fast. Gained to 110 on sugar cheat. Reset with 85P / 90C / 90F. Currently weaning off fat to 85P / 90C / 60F.
MY PRIMAL: I (try to) follow by-the-book primal as advocated by Mark Sisson, except for whey powder and a bit of cream. I advocate a two-month strict adjustment for newbies. But everybody is different and other need to tweak Primal to their own needs.
