Default Paleo Cost

I've searched and read what little there is here about the cost of going paleo, but no estimates or numbers have popped up yet.

I was just looking for an idea of what you guys spend on food, as well as a rough idea of how much you eat.

I'm at around 4,250kcal/day of paleo foods, including probably too much fruit for carbs and definitely too much nuts for fat, and this is pretty easily costing upwards of $150/week. That's with mostly non-grass ex-lean ground beef instead of steak or fish. I know that if I replaced some of the nuts with olive oil costs would go down, but that much? I used to consider $65-70/wk a lot.. this is just ridiculous.

I feel like I'm really missing something here, but wanted to get an outside perspective on the cost before I start rethinking the whole thing. So, the question is.. what do you spend per week, and for roughly how much food? Other suggestions or details would be appreciated as well.

Many Thanks,
Justin Arnold
