[Discussion] - Some questions from a struggling, confused newbie! via /r/Paleo

I used to track calories, but here people say you shouldn’t. Am I just meant to eat when I’m hungry? What if I overeat? (want to lose weight/cut). Just very skeptical of losing weight when i could overeat on these recipes - not to mention that the majority of these recipes don’t even contain any kind of info about calories/carbs/protein etc

How do i know if i’m getting enough sodium/electrolytes/vitamins etc? I can’t really track them..and the amount of macro/micronutrients that people say you need otherwise you can get tired etc is overwhelming. does anyone have any strategies?

What should my macros be like? At the moment its carbs10/protein30/fats60 - is this ok? People say that carbs need to be reduced (but not necessarily to keto levels), but to how much?

I’m working out, I generally know that I need carbs (when - before? or after?), but what exactly? Someone said starch? What are examples of food/how much carbs? Should i eat more on the days that i am lifting? (and any resources for lifting with paleo)

I know there are many recipes out there that I’ve found, but anyone got any specific newbie recommendations? I’m a college student that has the cooking skills of a potato and the amount of recipes that look like they’re made by jamie oliver is overwhelming. (i’ve only just learnt to batch cook marinated chicken in the oven, which i was proud of). simple, easy to make recipes with variety are what i’m looking for as i find it hard to find time to cook also!

Answers much appreciated, i may post some more questions. I’ve read so many hours worth of info on the internet/reddit/the faq that my mind has turned to mush, I just want some basic answers so i can start eating right/cutting. Thanks!

Healthy berry crisp:

I was really craving a berry crisp the other day, and I thought it would be a good substitute for the cereal I’ve been eating for breakfast. I kind of made the recipe up on my own, and it ended up being delicious (and healthy!).

Ingredients:
-blueberries
-blackberries
-oats
-brown sugar
-whole wheat flour
-vanilla
-honey
-butter

I mixed the berries with a little flour, about 1/8 cup of brown sugar, a teaspoon of vanilla, and I kind of just squeezed some honey in based on what looked like a good amount.

I put the berries in a stone dish.

I used about 1/5 of a stick of butter, cold, mixed it with a cup of oats, 1/8 of a cup of brown sugar and probably 2 tablespoons of honey. I spread the crust over the berries.

I then baked the crisp for an hour at 350 degrees.

It definitely wasn’t as indulgent tasting as it would be if I used a full stick of butter. And it wasn’t extremely sweet ( that’s my preference anyway)…but it is a good, pretty healthy dessert or breakfast option, and I expect I’ll be making it quite frequently.

Zucchini Burger Recipe

If any of you are like me; wanting to eat healthier and in the transition between carnivore to herbivore I created the perfect recipe! It is called Zucchini Burger, which satisfies the need for a sandwich but doesn’t have the red meat. Here it goes:

What you will need:

1 large Zucchini grated (I used my food processor for this), Drain any excess water using layered paper towels.

1 cup of Bread Crumbs of your choice

½ cup of grated Parmesan cheese

Pinch of Nutmeg (too much will overpower the recipe)

¼ tsp of Paprika

¼ tsp Oregano

Salt and Pepper to liking

2 Large Eggs

1 Garlic Clove, minced

2 tbsp of Olive Oil or Crisco

How to Prepare:

Place a medium Frying Pan on low heat, add the 2 tbsp of Olive Oil or Crisco, let sit until hot.

In a small mixing bowl beat both Eggs until well combined.

In a large mixing bowl add all ingredients including beaten Eggs.

On a cookie sheet or wooden plank, place parchment paper sprinkled with flour down. Dollop mixture on cookie sheet and flatten into a patty form.

Place in the refrigerator for at least 30 Minutes (This allows the patties to cook without falling apart).

Take the patties out of the fridge and start frying them in the frying pan, flip when edges are light brown and crispy. 

Place on a plate with paper towels to drain the oil out.

Fix however you enjoy your burger!
