I ate at about 12:15 and I still feel full over 3 hours later. I probably will not want to eat again till well after 6. I haven't felt tired at all this afternoon. I have never done a nutritional food analysis before and I can tell you I am a bit surprised at how much fat I really eat. I would guess based on this that my daily calorie intake is probably in the average range of 50-60% fat. Don't get me wrong though, I am happy about this fat consumption because that is what I use for energy. I typically eat more protein than this for lunch but I do like to pretend I had a bad hunt and only was able to eat the foods that were gathered in the morning. You know, like a caveman might experience.
This is how I've eaten for the last 45 months or so (started January 2007). I feel great and am leaner than I have been since college when I trained 5-6 days a week. I now exercise at a much lower intensity only about 4-8 times a month on average. I will have blood work done in a month or so but I am very confident it will be much better than if I were eating a low fat diet for the last 3 years. I actually hope my total cholesterol goes up a bit as it is typically real low. Stay tuned for that report.
*****UPDATE***** I ran the numbers for my whole day yesterday to include a morning smoothie with whey protein, half an apple, and 2 TBs of fish oil (I know, not real food). For dinner I had a bowl of homemade chili with ground pork in it. I also had several handfuls of mixed nuts throughout the evening. My portion estimates may be off a bit but here is the final tally for the day:
3,494 Calories, 71% from fat, 15% from protein, and 14% from carbs. This is how I typically eat. I feel great and have to eat this much to maintain my weight.CP
