You can also dice up squash in an omelet. I also put raw squash in my salads. A lot of times, I will cook 1 squash in the microwave for 3.5 minutes and mix it with cooked ground turkey and cumin with a pinch of salt, yummy!!!! You can empty the squash contents and stuff with raw ground beef or turkey and cook on the stove, follow the stuffed peppers recipe. Obviously without the rice. Sometimes I put extra virgin olive oil on the squash with some seasonings, throw it in the oven to broil for 25 min. Delicious!!! OMG I'm getting hungry, but yes, I love squash.
Also, you can cook squash on the stovetop and dice it up, drizzle olive oil, lemon and a little salt on it. I made chicken tonight, in the oven and threw in wedges of squash. The kids love this one, I cut up squash in wedges, dip in raw eggs, dip in almond meal and throw in the oven for about 40 min @ 400 tastes real good. Sorry for rambling, but I've been craving squash for a few weeks now, so I've been making it often. The squash cooks pretty easily, so I'm not sure how much you'd like to cook ahead of time??? I know the Paleo hummus is good for a good 7 days in the fridge. So, you can make that ahead of time.
Think I might have to try some squash during my stay in europe (seen plenty in the supermarket). I've still been having some gi issues with sweet potatoes so will give this a try as I need some carbs.

Will have to see how these go as pancakes. My usual after dinner treat is sweet potato cinnamon pancakes (120g sweet potato, 3 large eggs (1 whole and 2 whites) with cinnamon, nutmeg and sea or Himalayan salt.

Luckily I have had zero GI issues with squash and I eat lot's of it. However, I do eat it cooked most of the time. I forgot to mention one more recipe: Dice up 2 large Italian squash, cook with some coconut oil over the stove for 25 min. at the end, add three eggs, cumin and salt to taste.
My dessert is less healthy than yours: 2 tablespoons full fat sour crème, 1 tablespoon unsweetened coco powder, 1 packet stevia, mix and enjoy! Obviously, I have no problems with small amounts of dairy

OK I'm sold lol I'm going to give it a try starting tomorrow. I went shopping today for food so I'm ready to go I have some beer I'm going to finish up tonight lol I'm actually really excited to start this and even more excited that I will be able to have an occasional glass of wine or two without feeling like I'm cheating . I don't think I'll have much of a problem giving up grain but I'm not ready to give up greek yogurt yet. I love love love plain greek yogurt mixed with frozen berries I'll just try to keep it to one serving a day or less. The meat will be easy , my dad is a big hunter and fishermen with a huge deep freezer that I'm free, actually encouraged to raid

I'm down 2 more pounds this week and still feel amazing.

I will never, ever go back.

My Husband and I took the boys on a mini vacation last week and I was worried how had it would be for me to find Paleo friendly food.

Well, let me tell you, it was very easy. One night we went out for Mexican and I ordered the chicken fajita's with extra avocado. I let my Husband and sons eat the tortillas, etc.

we went out for breakfast twice and I had bacon and scrambled eggs.

One day we stopped and Subway and I was sort of worried because I haven't had fast food in YEARS. At Subway I was able to get a salad bowl with lettuce, tomatoes, onions, japalenos and diced ham.


I've been hard core Paleo now for 7 months and I haven't cheated not once and I haven't even been tempted to.

I cannot tell you how much better I feel and how much energy I have.

GO for it! You will love it!

That's great progress!!!! It really is easy to make good food choices even when out like you've found out and most places will make things special if you ask them nicely

My weight has stabilised (I do not need or want to lose weight) but my body composition is definitely changing and I'm getting leaner by the day which means that fat loss is definitely happening while muscle is slowly growing. I'm going to have make some food mods soon to either maintain or slow the fat loss as my veins are going crazy

I've been doing really well with food situation here in Italy. Not tempted at all by either pasta or pizza ... It sucks that I can't eat the bread and gelato but id rather go without than feel like crap afterwards. As long as I can get meat of any kind (which Ive been able to get easily) as well as plain salads or grilled veggies, I'm happy and good to go Dinner was another good one with parma ham with melon followed by grilled tenderloin with roast potatoes. Breakfasts have been my favourite - hard boiled eggs and bacon all cut up and mixed together followed by some fresh pineapple. As good as the scrambled eggs look, unless I watch them mix the eggs in front of my face so I know for sure they don't add milk or use the oil or butter I want them to cook them with. The bacon I have no control over how they cook (probably use a seed oil but I'm hoping they use olive oil) but at least I know that my hard boiled eggs are 100% safe.

I've got a day at the world superbikes championships today so I've got a couple of tins of tuna as back up in our bag but we've got VIP passes and the food available behind the scenes is usually pretty amazing with safe choices available.

It sounds like you are having an amazing time in Italy. I wish I were there with you! I'm so jelly!

Your food choices sound delicious. I've never thought of hard boiled eggs and chopped up bacon at while out to eat, but that does sound yummy. I will remember that.

Have fun!

I have been eating the traditional body builders diet for decades and it is not working for me now so I just got the paleo books on kindle. I started working out more, running hills and found in 8 weeks I gained 5 pounds, freak me out. I have not been 132-133 since my off season training when I was competing 7 years ago. my DH started testosterone therapy about same time and i am m wondering if I m getting some ? my quads and butt exploded with muscle recently ! any how I' am going to lose 5 pounds fat to compensate for the muscle weight gain...one has to go as I look heavier ! eekkk. glad for this three to motivate me.

I read my book last night and this AM and it is pretty basic. I think the only thing I am going to miss is my whey protein drinks with spinach in them.

Life is filled with compromise, however, I think you will learn that Paleo opens up a whole new world of foods that are delicious and nutritionally dense. I bet you probably will not miss your whey protein shakes Since having switched over to Paleo, the only thing I miss from my previous SAD diet is ....................ummmmmm nothing
Lot's of smoothie recipes out there you can try , adding spinach, kale , berries and nut butter.

I have yet another question if you ladies don't mind.

I'm just wondering how often you typically eat/drink (if consuming calories in liquid form) during the day? Or do you pretty much just let hunger dictate so it varies from day to day?

I NEVER have my food in liquid form (it's not as satiating and can cause insulin spikes which promotes more hunger. Also the body needs to work at breaking down whole foods). When eating food that is higher in fat, you so feel fuller longer so don't really need to eat too often. I find the less fat in the meal or snack, the quicker the next meal comes round. Besides breakfast and dinner which I usually eat at the same times (dinner we always eat as a family) my other meals fit in depending on what I'm doing that day and how hungry I get.

I never counted calories or macros before but was interested to see how much I do eat and the ratios and it turned out I eat between 1800 - 2200 per day and about 40% Protein, 40% Fat and 20% carbs ( these numbers can fluctuate up and down by 1-5% according to my records on MFP) but I don't set out to eat a certain amount of carbs, protein or fat... This is just how I naturally eat and not bothered if those percentages fluctuate. MFP can be great tool to keep track but if you get obsessed about numbers, it may not be a good idea to use this or scales as paleo isn't about the numbers but how you feel and perform.

Mine varies, and I do try very hard to listen to what my body is telling me and go from there. Sometimes it is not telling me "hunger", it is telling me "thirst" -- but I am reading it as "snack". lol The important thing is that I realize this happens, and most of the time I do recognize it. Amazing what a large glass of water can do to re-charge my batteries sometimes. In fact, it works almost every time. If I am still feeling hungry after a glass or two of water? Then it's time to eat, whether my conscious brain thinks it should be or not.

The only calories I've been drinking lately is my "bulletproof coffee" -- which I have first thing in the morning and usually again in the afternoon. My ingredients have varied since I started this, but lately I've settled on MCT oil (1 Tbsp) and organic heavy whipping cream (2 Tbsp). (The MCT oil comes from the bulletproof coffee guy's recipe and the cream I took from Mark Sisson in The Primal Blueprint.) I find this to be highly satiating, as it is pretty much pure fat. I also believe it has done WONDERS for my mental health and energy level, really upping the fat like that. I think this has a large part to do with why I've been able to completely quit smoking AND I am no longer craving the nuts -- I think this was my body's way of getting the fat, and it really is the wrong type of fat to be loading up on like I was. Learning more and more about fat and your brain, cholesterol for every cell of your body, etc.

Sorry, I know that was more than you asked for... but I do think it is important to listen to your body. Sometimes it will take you awhile to figure out what it is saying, but it is really a great moment when you do! And as you begin to let go of the strict calorie-counting/tracking mentality, you will learn that some days you need more calories and some days you need less, and that is perfectly natural.

Also wanted to add that we just finished watching the documentary called "Fat Head", after I'd seen several people recommend it on the MDA forums. I found it is free for Amazon Prime members to watch -- but I'm sure there are other ways to find it, as well.

http://www.amazon.com/Fat-Head/dp/B0...words=fat+head

It was safe for the whole family to watch, and we all found many parts to be hilarious (this guy is pretty funny!) -- while at the same time, there was some really interesting info for me that bored the younger ones a little. My 12-year-old enjoyed the whole thing, and I am really glad he watched it. My kids haven't given me much (any?) trouble about going Paleo, but this definitely reinforced and illustrated some of the KEY points of the Paleo/Primal movement for them.

What exactly do you mean by calories in liquid form? Smoothies?? I just let hunger be my guide, I'm not on a schedule. I definitely get more satisfaction eating and chewing my meals, rather than drinking them , but that's just me.

Thanks for the replies. Yeah, I meant if you're making greens smoothies or something - just how many times you're taking in calories of some form.

I'd like to get to a point where I'm not counting, but I think right now it's best I do because I'm also trying to work on increasing calories and get past restrictive fears (been dieting for way too long), so if I don't count, I know I'll eat far too little.

It's not so much hunger that's an issue with me, unless I eat fruit, which I've learned isn't the best choice for me), it's just starting to feel really weak after going too long between meals. I think I'm still too low in fats overall though.

I try cutting back on carbs (mostly just eating brown rice and sweet potatoes) but as soon as I do that, I feel very lethargic and my head feels really off (kind of like it might explode for lack of a better way to describe it). It only happens when I cut carbs and go protein + fat, so I'm assuming it's low carb that's doing it.

Should I just stick it out and that will pass? It might just be a matter of needing to adapt.

My carbs aren't incredibly high either right now (typically around 110-140 grams) and my cals are around 1400-1600 a day (I'm 125). When I eat more carbs, I don't get that brain feeling but after a couple hours of eating, I feel just muscularly very weak and totally lacking all energy.

Definitely sound like your fat intake isn't too high if you're feeling weak and lethargic between meals. You can boost those fat calories by cooking with or adding a teaspoon or two of grass fed butter, ghee or coconut oil to your meals to see how you feel I between meals.

As for cutting carbs, I don't see any reason why you would especially if you're using sweet potato or other root veggies as your source. They are a fantastic source of carbohydrate so I would just keep them in if you find you feel better on them. There is no reason to feel like you're currently feeling and you're body probably needs them to function properly. I know that the leaner I get, the better i do on more carbs.
