The Basics: Part Six
Putting It All Together:
If you’ve made it this far in our quest, BIG congrats. Some of this material can be boring and the challenge of applying it to your own life can seem daunting. So let’s tie this all together my friends.
What should your plate really look like? Imagine your plate has been cut into quarters. One quarter of your plate should include lean meats from the sources we discussed above, one-half of your plate should be filled with complex carbohydrate in the form of vegetables. The final quarter of your plate should be filled with a mix of good fat sources (avocado, nuts, olives, seeds, olive and or coconut oils) and fruits. Take a look at the graphic below, just remember to include fats in the red quarter.
Is it really that simple? Yes, it is. But what if you are a small female as opposed to a beefy male? Is it still the same amounts? For the most part, yes. The quarter-plate method is simply a ratio. If you are a small female and you eat less, just remember to use a bit smaller plate. The key is to play around with the quantity and find what works for YOU. A serving is roughly the size of your own palm. The goal of this lifestyle change is to replace the quality of the food you are eating, not the quantity. One thing about the paleolithic lifestyle, I NEVER GO HUNGRY. If you are hungry, then eat. Just eat the right foods!
What should you NOT eat? Here’s the list. Armor up, it’s gonna hurt.
