From a health and bulking standpoint, what do you believe this daily diet may or may not do for an individual?

-7 servings fresh vegetables
-7 servings fresh fruit
-Nearly a half cup of olive oil
-5 large servings of meat (fatty and lean)

Thank you in advance, smart dudes.

I can't comment on it from a bulking standpoint because I don't know the macronutrient breakdown or total calories.

From a health standpoint, there probably isn't a proper ratio of healthy fats (poly vs mono), but I don't know much about that so I can't expand. Other than that, it looks basically like the Mediterranean Diet, which has been shown to be quite healthy.

Well for someone your size I don't know if you need that many calories (unless of course you've determined by trial and error that you do). If you were to decrease calories, you could just take them all from fat and your diet would look very good. For the time being, your % of calories coming from fat is on the high side. You should aim for something more isocaloric.

The amount of fibre is good, maybe a little bit low for that many calories, but a lot better than the average diet.

Thank you kind sir! Yep, my fat intake is fairly high because of the amount of meat I've been eating. My fiber is low because of the lack of grains. I'd have to say though, I feel great, and I'm gaining.

I think your fat intake being fairly high is more a result of the 100g of olive oil you're taking, but that's just one man's humble opinion. :clown:

All that fat combined with that much fruit (sugar)= fat gain

Where are your grains, nuts, seeds, dairy, egg whites? And how much is one vegetable or fruit? Because for me one serving of broccoli is 60-80 cal, and for others 15 cal is one serving. Big difference.

RBC13, my diet is based off of a paleolithic diet (the principle that humans should eat as they have eaten for the last 2.5 million years), I eat only meat, veggies, fruits, nuts, and eggs. This would explain the absence of grains and dairy. ( : As for serving sizes, well... yesterday I ate: about three or four pieces of fruit, a handful of berries, two cups of spinach (packed), one cup of broccoli (packed), two pieces of fish, one chunk of pork, a chicken breast, some sardines, and of course, olive oil. :burger:

If you are eating beef and pork they are very caloric and fat dense eat white meats i.e fish chicken turkey. and drop the high fats from the olive oil, try and get your fats from natural food and not so much oils. Granted that olive oil is good stuff but half a cup tuttut

Are you saying that we haven't eaten grains over the last 2.5 million years, and have not given our babies milk over that time as well?
