Fat loss and paleo nutrition!
(And an exciting announcement!)
Thank you, thank you! This is so helpful, I eat very strict paleo and limit my treats and don’t really eat fruit but still have a hard time leaning out. The liquid foods part is especially helpful and limiting the amount of nuts I eat.
You are very welcome! We are glad you’re getting something from our efforts here. Keep up the good work!
Do you have any specific feedback on paleo health benefits of potatoes? Are the skins of the potato safe or toxic?
The skins of white potatoes contain a fairly heavy dose of saponins, the same gut irritants we find in legumes.

What about soups as liquid food? Thoughts?
Soups with thicker broths, like chowders, should not be considered fat loss food. Chicken soup, for example, is probably fine.
Love this podcast! Being a 20 something female I always ask my friends who are trying to lose weight, “are you trying to be skinny or strong” they are not the same thing. Strong is the new skinny!
Oh my gosh! Thank you so much! You really opened my eyes!
I really liked this podcast. Thank you so much! It’s exactly what I needed to hear right now. It gave me a number of things to consider when thinking about why I may not be losing fat as I’d hoped. I’ve been eating paleo for about 8 months and the switch has been a great thing for me! This podcast made me think that I need to work on my fruit and protein shake consumption. I liked the reminder to eat my protein – not drink it – post work out. Thanks for the reminder!
Thanks – great podcast! I appreciate that you take on the unspoken issue that even if food is totally paleo (not even treats) you can actually eat too much and gain weight/fat. My eating is really good – I eat mainly veggies and protein, almost no fruit and a bit of nuts and my exercise is too but I have been stalled for months. I think I do consume too much and the sleep is a real issue. Who ever thought it would be so hard to sleep yourself thin/healthy!
I understand the concept behind liquid food and currently use a restricted eating window most days. What are your thoughts of consuming “bulletproof coffee” (Coffee with MCT oil and grass fed butter) during the fast if one is shooting for fat loss?
Sounds fine to me. I might actually try that myself.
What do you recommend eating right after a workout? I thought you were supposed to have protein within 30 minutes of the workout. I know you mentioned sweet potato, but I need to lose about 40-50 pounds and didn’t think from what I have read so far, that I was supposed to eat that….plus that would be carbs, not protein. Or, is it ok to wait to eat anything if I will have supper within 30-60 minutes of the workout.
If you primary goal is fat loss, I don’t recommend eating post workout, at least not outside of your regular meals. In other words, workout and then eat when you would normally eat if you had not worked out. Post workout nutrition is more of a performance thing. Fat loss goals mean that performance needs to take the back seat.
Yes, fat loss is my primary goal right now. I found Everyday Paleo because of a recipe someone posted in another group. I started reading, and started eating what you recommend last Monday. Thanks for your response, Jason.
