The official unofficial FAQ of CAVEMANforum
This may seem like a very silly question, but what are some ways of obtaining animal fat for cooking? I'm a beginner when it comes to cooking and I'm teaching myself as I cook my Paleo meals. I was under the impression that olive oils, walnut oils and the like were Paleolithic after reading Dr. Cordain's book, but apparently not!
Do you still use any oils for cooking or do you stick to animal fats?
Hi! I've been lurking for a while now, but was wondering if anyone could give me some advice or spot where I'm going wrong I've been eating Paleo for 7 months and went through the usual carb withdrawal at the start. I'd been eating Nourishing Traditions style, so whole grains, dairy, potatoes, but no sugar or refined food (or beans - never really got into them). The thing is the dizziness/fatigue/light headedness hasn't really worn off! In fact - it's begun to affect my work!!I'm a 6ft2, 154lb guy. Do some moderate exercise (walking or cycling) and a light work out most days. I take in 2600 to 3400 calories a day (roughly 60% fat, 23% protein, 16% carbs). And a normal day for me would be:7oz of cold meat (from a joint I boil up, usually pretty fatty)3 pieces of fruit9oz of cold meat, saladlots of mixed nuts9/10oz of meat or fish, vegetables, stock, some added lard/tallowI'm a bit puzzled really! Physically I'm fine, but mentally - not so much
I am tired and weak.in the afternoons when an energy dip is usual, I am fighting to stay awake. I have eschewed caffeine.I was wondering if I could have a sodium deficiency, iodine, potassium....I need some more energy to get through the day. Help!
