Anyone have any ideas for foods with a high calorie count? I just started strict paleo simply to get more healthy, not to lose weight, but after 2 days I am already down 3 pounds. I used to eat about 4000 calories/day, and am struggling to eat enough. Any suggestions will help. Thanks!
The best way to add calories on paleo is to add fat. Start cooking lots of stuff in coconut oil, walnut oil, or olive oil. All those are high in omega 3’s and will give you lots of calories. Learn to love coconut anything. You can maybe mix post wod protein drinks with coconut milk. That would be really good and something I may have to try. Also try eating more grass fed red meat as well. Ground venison is perfect.
Not sure on how many meals you are consuming a day but try eating about 5-6 good healthy meals with an equal amount of protein, carbs, and fat.
Also just to point out paleo will help you shed the water weight you are holding very fast. 3 lbs in 2 days is nothing. Its all the grains and processed stuff that makes you hold onto water more so I wouldn’t really start panicking on losing weight after only 2 days. Stick with it and listen to your body. It will tell you what you really need if you stick to it.
Obviously tons of other stuff could go in here but just some ideas. Add to it as you may.
P.S. Also learn to love the incredible, edible egg!!!
Thanks Tyler for the input. I am eating 3-4 meals a day, but definitely need to start eating more. I am just running out of snacks and things to eat during the day. I didn’t know I could eat eggs, but I definitely am a big fan of them. Thanks again!
