Zone/Paleo Foods

What foods are good to eat for trying to gain strength?
Which are good for getting a higher caloric intake needed for a greater expenditure of energy?

Re: Zone/Paleo Foods

WHat are your goals and where are you now? How carb tolerant are you. A decent way to find out is when you get up on a day you don't have to do a whole lot. For breakfast eat pancakes with syrup (and butter if you want). Nothing else. Eat as much as you want but don't stuff yourself. Evaluate how you feel for the next 4 or so hours. If you feel great, full of energy, etc you are carb tolerant. If you crash, you are not. If you're like me, you take a nap in about 40 minutes and wake up 2 hours later and eat 2 lbs of brisket.

It was a three egg omlete, hash browns, 3 pancakes, ham steak, bacon and 2 peices of rye toast. I was attacked by the "Carb Monster" and lost.
