Weekend update

Here are some great pics of food that some of you have made and sent me, plus a recipe that Matt K. found and made:

Heather and Kevin's Lunch

Paleo cookies

here is the recipe Matt found on “StevePaleo” blog:

“**Paleo Cookies**
4 cups ground almonds (in the food processor if you can)
2 cups ground walnuts (Food Processor or DIY at Health Food Store – i did use a Braun coffee grinder once – messy)
2 cups heated raw organic honey (mixes easier that way)
1 cup chopped dry fruit (cranberries/raisins)
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Mix the dry stuff first, then add the honey. I like to refrigerate it at this point for about an hour so that it’s easier to roll balls but it’s not critical. Space them out quite a bit on a greased cookie sheet – these cookies do kinda go flat. Parchment paper really helps – use it if you got it because these suckers are stickyeeee! Bake at 15-20 minutes at 350. Really start checking after 15 minutes – cook them too much and you’ve got dog treats (trust me on this one). On the other hand, cook them just right and they do some frikin vanishing act – even with just me in the house!”

  3. Monday, October 25th:
    Breakfast – protien shake
    Snack – apple
    Lunch – lean beef and veggie soup (Heather says it’s paleo)
    Snack – Almonds
    Dinner – lean gound beef patty with sweet potato

    Unlike Heather, I have been starving all day everyday. Not sure what that’s all about but I am hungry an hour after I eat.

      Kevin,
      I would say that because of your high lean body mass percentage, you’re probably not getting enough fat for energy. You had previously been used to carb-loading and switching to a ketogenic diet will often leave you feeling hungry during the day if you’re not getting enough fat. I keep packets or jars of the almond butter with me and just eat that all day or a big bag of pecans will work too. Try that and see if that works better for you. When you look at your intake throughout the day, you should really have 6 meals: 3 larger ones and 3 smaller ‘snacks’ that are about 2-300 calories each, primarily from fat and protein. For example in your first snack on Monday, I would add a couple Tbsp of almond butter to the apple and then on your second snack add some grapes, an orange, almond milk, etc. Then have another one after dinner like a paleo candy bar or some trail mix.
      Give that a try and see if you are less hungry with a little more fat added in. i also think that will help with your endurance so you’ll have some energy when you’re running but you won’t need to eat a bunch of carbs.
