Day 16 of our Paleo Challenge

Today is day 16 of your 30 day paleo challenge. Be sure to post your points from yesterday January 18th.

How much protein does your body need? Popular dietary recommendations advise 0.7 and 0.9 grams per pound of body weight (1.5 and 2.0 grams per kilograms)

Your body weight ___________lbs   Multiply by 0.7 = ________ your daily minimum protein in grams

Your body weight ___________lbs Multiply by 0.9 = _________ your daily maximum protein in grams

1 ounce of scale weight Meat, poultry, fish, and seafood = 6-9 grams

1 large to jumbo egg = 6 - 8 grams

1 ounce of nuts = 2 - 6 grams

2 tbsp nut butter = 2 - 6 grams

So a review on your nutrition plan for protein: some of you are just not eating enough animal proteins. (a) porkchop (a) drumstick/thigh (a) piece of tilapia  IS not enough protein in one meal.

Fruits: Dr. Cordain’s original recommendation to eat fresh fruits as your appetite dictates still holds for most people. However, if you are very much overweight or are insulin resistant, he recommends that you initially limit high sugar fruits (grapes, bananas, mangos, sweet cherries, apples, pineapples, pears and kiwi fruit) from your diet until your weight starts to normalize and your health improves. Try to include more vegetables in lieu of the high-sugar fruit. As per his previous recommendations, dried fruits contain excessive sugar, and from the table below, you can see they more closely resemble commercial candy than their fresh counterparts. Note that some fruits (avocados, lemons, and limes) are very low in total sugar and should not be restricted.

So a review on your nutrition plan for fruits: MOST all of US are eating way to many servings of fruits. Including raisins, banana chips, dates, figs, bars, and smoothies. Your body will be okay with out all that sugar. So if fat loss is your goal and for most of us it is - then cut back on your fruit intake.
