In my daily nutritional consulting practice, I have a majority of clients that follow some variant of the Paleo Diet. Some clients see me for weight loss, and others are fit people simply looking to perform better or run that first half-marathon.
I love the Paleo Diet, it works, when applied consistently. Food portion size is not a widely considered factor in the Paleo Community. The thought is eat unlimited in the protein and non-starchy vegetable categories, and manage your fat intake to what energizes you best. I educate my clients about Paleo portion sizes, paying the most attention to foods that I classify as sugars or fats.
The info-graphics below easily demonstrate portion size awareness tied to sugar or fat grams. I decided to display for you 4 quality fat sources, and 1 super sugar snack. Pumpkin Seeds, Sunflower Kernels, In-shell Pistachios, Sunflower Butter, and the super sugar, blueberries.
The amount of 100 calories for these snacks was used to develop simple portion size awareness and retention. You may use the “block” of 100 calories any way you choose to!
