Paleo Day Eight

Another righteous paleo meal: 1 lb broccoli, 1 apple, 4 oz steak, nuts = 4 blocks. I did OK yesterday, about 95% compliance. After doing this (well trying to) for a week, I think the best diet for me would be dabbling in paleo, but allowing dairy, yams, figs, and some other compact carb sources to avoid having to eat like a cow. Moo. Also coffee and red wine should be allowed, but consumed in moderation. Finally, a small amount of refined carbs might be consumed from time to time: perhaps pizza, chocolate and things of that nature a few times a week. Of course staying in the Zone is the key to all things dietary.

6AM 1 cup milk = 1 block

8AM 4 cups mushrooms, 1 cup berries, 1 egg 2 egg whites, canned oysters, coconut milk, nuts = 4 blocks +2x fat

Noon 1 lb broccoli 3.5 oz steak = 3.5 blocks

8PM salad, 1 slice ham, bit of cheese = 1 block

9PM 1 lb broccoli, 1 cup berries, 12 almonds, coconut milk, 6 oz ground beef = 4 blocks +2x fat

Block Target = 16 paleo blocks (high fat ok)

Block Total = 13.5 +1.25x fat

Palo Rating = 90% (milk, coffee, bit of cheese)

Workout: weighted pull-ups 1-1-1-1 (1/2 volume week, last day)

Max Rep Pull-Ups: 36 (PR)

Nice blog. I'm also currently experimenting with the paleo diet, and find it very fascinating. To me your meal looks quite small, at least on the picture.
For me it's easier to follow the diet if I eat at least twice as much as normally, and also a great variety of foods. My dinner today, for example, included 6 different vegetables. Just as you noted previously, one really has to increase the amount of food.
