there would almost always be an option on resturant menus which fit the bill - either salads or steak with vegetables etc. asian resturants are the hardest (except for japanese as you can order sushimi) but not impossible.
breakfast on workdays was the hardest and i often skipped it, or ate jerky, nuts and dried fruit combos. on weekends i loved cooking paleo breakfasts - omlettes etc.
lunch at work is a salad every day - there is a place near by where you can select your ingredients - eggs, avacado, salads, olive oil etc
dinner is easy - grilled meat and vegetables, stews, salads.. i enjoyed the challenge of finding paleo recipes in normal cookbooks.
i wasnt obsessive about it - i dont buy into alot of the theory, like i say i was just trying to maximise nutrients per calorie, and avoid processed food as i do beleive processed foods are the cause of most dietry problems today.
if i wasnt worried about calories (i.e. not ane easy gainer who puts on weight just smelling a pie) i would probably eat more along Weston Price
advice - actually, i pretty much do that now albeit with limited grain intake.
i also love to cook so cooked non paleo stuff often (potatos etc)
