I've been doing a kind of paleo-southbeach hybrid for about three years and its effing awesome. as you mentioned, bacon in everything, and no need for cooking oil when you've got delicious bacon grease sitting around.
that's all i wanted to add. rock on!
Do you cook veggies in that too? I still havent been able to bring myself to put veggies into the bacon grease, but I cook other meats in that grease...And then pour that grease back into the jar. GREASE-CEPTION!

Definitely try trading in carbs for more fat and protein. An interesting thing is that your body can manufacture its own glucose, but will only do so if you don't give it enough dietary glucose so that it has to get it from somewhere else.
