I eat too much fruit.

Better than eating too much bread or too much candy.

Word.

Oh hey, I can't afford fresh wild salmon either. At Costco, I can get it in cans. There are two kinds and one is wild and one isn't, so get the wild one!

I also picked up a whole frozen salmon at the store that was wild caught too. It was on sale for like $7. I'm a bargain hunter. :) Oh, and I'm really digging on ground turkey lately...only $2.50 a pound.

I suppose you're all right about fruit being better than other carbs. Still, I should cut down. ATM I'm gorging on it, especially this frozen mixed fruit stuff. (a lot of little "snacks" aren't included in this journal... :)) Paleoliths did not have this abundance! I'll work on it.

@slbridges:
Canned wild salmon is an idea. I saw somewhere that mercury was undetectable, though I'm sure that's only some of it. First I've got to get to work on my sardines and kippered herring. That's quite enough for now.  :-X

I still haven't ventured into THOSE territories. I find salmon MUCH more palatable. Eep. :)

There are going to be a few days missing from this journal, as I have been anticipating and reading Deathly Hallows. It's all over now, unfortunately, so I should be back. I ate pretty paleolithically while I was reading.

Dude, me too.  I stayed off the internet for like 3 days so I wouldn't accidentally spoil myself.  Then when I finally got to read it I stayed up until 7:30AM finishing it.

I was being similarly careful to avoid spoilers. I stayed on the internet though, and at one point I went to view what looked like a good and totally unrelated video on youtube's most viewed ("Leeroy Jenkins remix," for those in the know about Leeroy :)) and it just turned into a list of people who die in the new book. By the second line, I had closed my eyes and put my hand in front of the monitor. I cautiously opened them and navigated out of the page. So yeah, I knew the first two people to die ahead of time. My friend had previously IM'ed my a whole list of spoilers which he got from the page of they guy who claimed to have hacked a computer of the publishing company, waaay before the publication. (This was even before the genuine leaks). That turned out to be a hoax, but if it wasn't, I would have killed my friend for spoiling it. :)

7/23
Breakfast:
Had some leftover 1/4 pound(before cooking) burgers, so I cooked up a massive thing of frozen onion and pepper, lots of fresh onion, fresh green onion, fresh celery, fried in coconut oil. Heated up 2 burgers and ate them topped with the onion mixture. My entire body smells like onion. It is oozing out of my pores. Afterword had a small bowl of frozen mixed fruit. (Trying to get rid of this addictive stuff.)

Lunch (After exercise - sprinting, walking, climbing, jumping, sandbag messing around):
2 eggs scrambled with leftover chicken cut up. (coconut oil)

Dinner: Chili - (3 people) - 2 pounds ground beef, onion, pepper, green onion, celery, 2 cans of stewed tomatoes, 2 cans of tomato sauce, 1 can of paste -- all no salt added. For dessert, finished off the evil 4 pound bag of mixed fruit. I am not buying it anymore. I cannot trust myself.

Snack(something to take fish oil with) - Leftover hamburger patty and onion mixture.

TOO MUCH ONION TODAY.  :) Onions are good, but not that good.

Beets aren't really good without vinegar.  You could cheat a little and sprinkle a little balsamic on them next time.  Really brings out the flavor.  Suze

I don't think we have any balsamic vinegar in the house... Not big vinegar people, I guess. But if we ever have beets again, I'll keep that in mind.

7/25
Meal 1:
1 "Philly steak" thing (supposed to go on philadelphia cheese steak sandwiches) fried with onions and 2 eggs, scrambled
1 plum

Meal 2:
4 pieces of bacon - nitrate free, but had salt, sugar.
fried broccoli in the fat
few cherries and blackberries - not too many

Meal 3:
2 1/3 pound (before cooking) beef patties.
Large plate of romaine salad.

Dessert - extra special:
Frozen mixed berries slightly thawed - with blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, and small strawberries
topped with some golden raisins, and orange blossom honey. Where has this been all my life?

In addition to what's listed in the last post, yesterday I had an apple, I think, and I cracked open the can of kippered herring and gave it a try. Interesting stuff. The smoke flavor does a good job of covering up the fish flavor, but the scales are a bit unnerving.

7/26
Breakfast:
2 philly steak things, with onion, etc.
few cherries and blackberries

Lunch:
2 carrots
1 plum

Later:
1 1/3 pound beef patty
1 orange

Dinner:
Tacos - I ate only the meat, lettuce and salsa. Tons of salt in everything, and wheat flour in the meat mixture. Raisins for dessert.

7/29

Besides some berries, ate first meal at around noon:
-1/2 pound uncooked of beef, 3 eggs, standard onion + pepper
-1 plum
-5 leaves of romaine

Ate other meal at Cracker Barrel, off of their low carb menu:
-Grilled Roast Beef (?) (with mushrooms and onions on top)
-my three sides were 1 baby carrot, 2 turnip greens
There was probably enough salt in the meal for a human to live on for about a month. The baby carrots were more like candy than anything, with the way they cook them, and you could not taste the slightest trace of the turnip greens underneath all the salt and meat that they put in.

Had some nuts, a plum later.

7/30

An Interesting day. When I got up, I decided that today would be a fast day. I didn't eat anything but water until just after 9PM, making around a 24 hour fast.

It was really pretty fun, pushing the limits. I didn't have any problems with energy, etc... Of course, there was a nagging hunger in my stomach, but it felt like more of a *reminder* than anything. It was like my body knew that my consciousness was busy hunting or gathering, and so it leaves me alone to get to it. The hunger is different from a craving. It isn't like I just open up the fridge and grab something. It's controlled. I went for long periods without realizing that I hadn't eaten.

Breaking fast is really fun. In about 40 minutes, I ate probably just a little under the amount of food I usually eat in a day. And it was oh so satisfying. It's a glorious moment, eating food like crazy.

I ate:
2 porkchops, pan fried
medium bowl of steamed broccoli
medium bowl of steamed "asparagus stir-fry" from frozen
1 plum
bunch of grapes
half a bag of spring mix salad (covered a large plate)
some raspberries
1 1/3 pound hamburger
some onion and pepper veg, just for seasoning.
