Shrimp Fried “Rice” – You’ve probably got leftover cauliflower rice from the night before, making today the perfect time to make this delectable dish. While fried rice ordered from the local Chinese restaurant is likely not health food, when you make it according to the Paleo diet you’re getting a wholesome dish that is full of protein and vegetables and healthy coconut oil so you not only get a delicious lunch to enjoy, your body puts these nutrients to work for the rest of the day.
Since we are talking about setting a meal plan, we need to talk about how many calories you should plan to eat. If your goal is to lose weight, all you need to know is your goal weight. The equation is easy; add a zero to the end of your goal weight to find your daily calorie goal. Just be sure not to go under 1200 calories per day as this will send your metabolism into preservation mode, which may cause your body to hold onto weight instead of releasing it.
Limit saturated fat and trans fat and replace them with the better fats, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated. If you need to lower your blood cholesterol, reduce saturated fat to no more than 5 to 6 percent of total calories. For someone eating 2,000 calories a day, that’s about 13 grams of saturated fat.
On the first day I started Paleo I weighed 254 lbs. Today I have weighed myself again which is exactly 1 month later, and I now weigh 232 lbs. I have been pleasantly surprised by this loss as the month has not been that hard at all. Sure there have been times where I really craved something bad, but nothing major.
N K/ShutterstockCraving a special treat? Eat it, love it, and move on with your day says Lisa Moskovitz, RD, CDN, CEO of NY Nutrition Group. “Feeling guilty after eating foods you don’t usually allow yourself to eat can breed more unhealthy eating behaviors,” she explains. “So abandon those negative voices in your head, give yourself permission to enjoy the indulgence guilt-free, and just remember to get back on track with your normal eating routine right after.”
If you’ve struggled to change your diet in the past, or you’re stick of starting and stopping a diet, I’m here to tell ya you can stop starving yourself and getting frustrated. We’ve helped tens of thousands of busy people change their diets, like Tim above.
A high-protein, low-carb regime, the Paleo diet is founded on the belief that we should eat like our hunter-gathering ancestors. Cereals, grains, dairy, refined sugar, potatoes and salt are all out. Instead, fill up on eggs, nuts, seeds, fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices.
Studies find that people who eat cereal for breakfast every day are significantly less likely to be obese and have diabetes than those who don’t. They also consume more fiber and calcium—and less fat—than those who eat other breakfast foods. Make oatmeal, or pour out a high-fiber, low-sugar cereal like Total or Grape Nuts, and boost it up with these healthy cereal hacks.

Choose foods with less sodium and prepare foods with little or no salt. To lower blood pressure, aim to eat no more than 2,400 milligrams of sodium per day. Reducing daily intake to 1,500 mg is desirable because it can lower blood pressure even further. If you can’t meet these goals right now, even reducing sodium intake by 1,000 mg per day can benefit blood pressure.
Drive on the freeway. I know it sounds weird, but I was so anxious before that I couldn’t drive on the freeway without having panic attacks. When I went to PrimalCon, I actually drove down a day early to stay with Orleatha and Chris Smith, an amazing couple I met at PaleoFX. I had had a ride all lined up for the following day, but I decided to leave early and go all the way to LA by myself. As I was merging from one LA freeway to another, singing along to the radio and changing lanes, I realized I was like, “WHAT’S UP, LA?! WOTCHA GOT?! BRING IT ON!!!!” It was incredibly empowering.
If you’re still not convinced that it is possible to lose weight without exercising, read Kimberly Davis’ story. After a succession of tragic events her weight had ballooned, and to top it all off, she was in recovery from breaking both her ankles in 2014, so was unable to do high-impact cardio. Here she details her diet diary as she followed the Metabolic Balance programme over 12 weeks, with the guidance of Ravenshear.
Just remember, it’s suppose to be a soup and not a meal, so you must have enough liquid. Best way, look where your veggies end up before adding the water, then make a visual mark 2 inches higher than the veggies and add your water accordingly to hit that 2 inches above the veggies. Make sense?
That’s right, you read the heading correctly. Eating too little can stall your weight loss (contrary to popular belief). Your body’s metabolism will down-regulate when you keep eating at a caloric deficit for too long. Try alternating your food intake (eat more some days and less on other days).
