Am I eating right or not?
« on: December 04, 2012, 02:45:07 AM »
Hi,

I would like to see your opinion about my diet:
I'm a 35 years old guy, 5' 10'' tall, 200 lbs,  physically active.  My blood pressure is 145/90 :(. This is the main reason why started Paleo diet 2 weeks ago. Usually I eat sardines, scrambled eggs with sausage/bacon for breakfast with veggies with paleo bread(flaxseed,sunflower seed, pumpkin seed, sesame seed). I eat lots of veggies and fruits as well. I also eat lots of animal fat and meat. I now don't consume grains, rice, potato etc.
My question is:
1.How much animal fat is still good for health?
2.Paleo bread?

1. Assuming you are active, as much as you can stomach.

2. No such thing.

On flax seeds, the bioavailability of nutrients in them for humans is almost nil. If you want the benefits of flax seeds, feed them to a chicken and eat its eggs then when it gets nice and fat, eat the chicken.

Ok I understand flax seed, but what about sunflower, sesame seed, pumpkin seed?

Switching to the paleo diet will require some adjustments in terms of what you think of as food.  It's best to get used to thinking about bread as "not food", whatever it's made of.
