It is??

A large egg has 6.3g of protein.

Hi everyone...just dropping in to say hi!

I reached my goal weight last month doing Atkins primal style. I now eat pretty much primal as I found paleo too restrictive for me. Doing more IF now which was hard when I was very overweight.

Use to post over on MDA but have just been a reader/lurker for some time. I grew tired of defending every single thing I ate or did. LOVE Mark's blogs and the recipes.

Glad that paleo/primal has its own special spot now.

I'm sorry, I haven't read everything yet. Is the main difference between primal and paleo dairy?

I was just wondering the same thing - this is what I found:

I thought an egg only had about 7 grams of protein. Okay, I just looked it up on nutrition.gov. Protein content of raw chicken egg ranges from 4.77 to 7.91, from small to jumbo.

I'm following the Primal BluePrint and Archevore schools of thought. My carbs vary daily, anywhere from 20 to 100, I don't really keep track. I pay more attention to my protein. I aim for 80-100g a day, sometimes I go over and sometimes I'm under. I have plenty of saturated fat, with a cup of heavy cream and 2-4 cups of whole raw milk everyday. I think convention confinement dairy is the neolithic agent of disease but grass-fed raw dairy is healthful food. My body has a lot of healing to do so I'm not shying away from the calories. I've lost 35lbs this year, gone from size 4x to 2x (soon to be 1X), and have gained a lot of muscle without exercising.

I hang out and post at MDA but still feel more closely tied to LCF.

Thanks for the website, nanberry... I found some place semi-close to me. Does it matter if the cows are not grass-fed? I keep looking for that, and I can't find it anywhere...

It's great to find other people trying to follow Paleo. I just gave up the whey protein shakes this week and honestly, I am much less bloated. My day is something like this:

*morning cardio on empty
*1/2 cup egg whites + 1 omega 3 egg + sauteed onions + sauteed spinach w/ pico de gallo (breakfast immediately following cardio)
*1/4 cup raw walnuts (snack)
*4 oz grilled chicken breast with 3 tbsp guacamole
weight training
*4 oz 96/4 lean grilled sirloin patty w/ 2 tbsp guacamole
*4 oz grilled chicken breast wtih 3 tbsp guacamole
* 10-12 grilled shrimp w/ cranberry, kale, tomato, pine nut salad from whole foods
I supplement with Anavite multivitamin, vitamin D3, iron, EFA oil blend by Labrada, B12 when I feel low energy & magnesium - CALM. I also like liquid melatonin to help me sleep.

I welcome input - does this sound like a well-balanced, healthy diet? My only caveat - the liquid stevia I put in my herbal iced tea and the sugar-free gum chewing habit I'm trying to kill....

Sounds like you're doing great! I love the NO bloat feeling too. I do excercise just like you do, empty, I'm starving when done.
As far as food goes, love the guacamole, I eat about one avocado a day. Only thing I do different, I eat enormous salads sometimes two times a day. I love filling up on them. I dont measure my proteins, but. I dont at all gorge on them either. What do you use to saute with? I think you're food sounds very well balanced.

Morning cardio on empty Never worked for me. I do cardio about 2 days a week and the rest is weight-lifting.

Food looks good.

All the cows (and goats) on the list will be grass-fed. They may gets some supplemental grains in the winter time depending on climate and the farmer's discretion, but otherwise they'll be out to pasture every chance they get.

Dr Kruse really got everyone going on getting their leptin in line. It's worth checking out.

The 50g protein first thing in the morning is in agreement with the leptin diet, and the book Mastering Leptin.

This is if you are doing the leptin reset (Dr Kruse's), and it depends on if you need it. If you have some stubborn weight to lose, you probably do.
