Max Paleo Benefit

Ive been CF-ing and doing paleo for about 2 years now. Im trying to lean out just a little...maybe 3% more bodyfat and am at 11-13 now. Im unable to run/jump due to a torn ACL and knee damage. I can still CF (did elizabeth today in 6:30, as RX). I am at work all day and thus pack a lunch but my issue is what and how to pack. im not a "zone" guy but typically do -
2 hardboiled eggs, a yogurt, 4oz almonds, 2 diet sodas, 2 string cheese, 3 oz lean turkey, tuna and maybe a some almond butter/jelly torilla wraps.

I feel like im not eating enough but not really sure what else to have avaliable. Im not looking for recipes per se but ideas and solutions for people in a similar situation with pre-packing their days worth of food

The average is the borderline that keeps mere men in their place. Those who step over the line are heroes by the very act. Go!

Re: Max Paleo Benefit

Diet sodas aren't even remotely paleo. Neither are tortillas. Most commercial yogurts are full of non-paleo sugar and other junk -- read the label.

You're right, that's a pitiful amount of food.

More meat. More veggies. More fruit. Avocados are full of good fats and extremely portable.

Lots of threads here from people in a similar situation. Search.

Re: Max Paleo Benefit

I bring some grilled chicken salads, oatmeal, and leftovers from the night before that I can just heat up. You can also make some protein shakes using almond milk or regular milk, 1 piece of fruit, almond or peanut butter, and a scoop of protein. For the oatmeal, I heat up oatmeal with almond or regular milk and then add 1 banana, protein powder, and almond or peanut butter. With the salad, I just bring the dressing separately and add it when I'm ready to eat it. In the salad, I like to put nuts and other veggies, such as peppers and carrots.
