Currently, I've been following the paleo diet(the vegan version lol).

My diet consist of 45 percent protein, 40 percent fat and 10 percent cabohydrates.

The ratio is basically 145 grams of protein, 60 carbs, and 60 grams of fat.

It breaks down to 580 calories from protein, 240 calories from carbs, and 540 from fat.

My weight is 150lb, around 18 percent body fat and 5'8.

I consume mainly tofu and tempeh. I basically cook the tofu and treat it like i would treat rice. I would put the tasty fake meat for taste and consume tofu like i used to consume the unhealthy white rice.

What do you think of my diet?

I get most of my vitamines from leafy vegetables and yerba mate(the unsmoke eco version from whole food).

I would say your calorie intake is very low and your protein intake would be considered high by most people here. I would add some fruits to that diet! :)

Adding fruits to the diet would defeat the whole purpose of the diet. By increasing my sugar intake, i would increase the insulin, which would increase the fat intake.

I'm looking to control the insulin, which should control the fat intake.

My diet is lower calories than my daily recommendation because i'm looking to tone up and lose fat while doing only 1-2 hours of cardio per week max.
