Question about Paleo.
I have now changed over to simply eating Paleo. I am in this for health reason, therefore I figure it is the best way to go. I have done Zone, CKD, etc...all with good results but am looking for easy to follow, long lasting success (i.e. Paleo).
I have a question though. It seems with everything I have read Paleo is considered low carb. However I don't feel I am eating low carb. My eating looks like this:
Carbs.-50%, Protein-35%, Fat-15% on an 1800 calorie a day eating plan. As well I do intense exercise 5-8 times weekly.
First, is this an awkward split?
Second, I am finding I am eating a lot of oatmeal (more for lack of not wanting to eat to much fruit because I have a good bit of fat to lose, and because I can't think of many other carbs. besides veggies, which I eat a lot of). Is eating oatmeal considered Paleo or not Paleo? For instance today I had 114 grams of carbs. in oatmeal (the no sugar, no added flavour kind). Bad?
Also with the 50/35/15 split, if this isn't optimal what would be a better split?
Thanks very much everyone. Sorry for the long question I posted.
no grains on paleo. you can go to paleodiet or thepaleodiet or read loren cordain's book (library). it is pretty simple; meat/seafood, vegies, limited fruit, nuts, (not legumes) certain oils. that's what makes it lower carb...the elimination or starches, grains, sugar.
Oats are not Paleo
No grains at all on Paleo and your protein should be more like 55%. I just finished the book.:)
