Diet and nutrition / Re: Best foods for avoiding weight loss
« on: April 19, 2012, 02:05:37 AM »
(i'm already just under my recommended bmi)
I wouldn't worry too much about BMI. It's a very generalized guide and doesn't account at all for things like muscle mass, or people with turbocharged metabolisms etc.
If you lose weight quickly, then you're probably not supposed to be very heavy ;)

Diet and nutrition / Re: After this video i'm very confused
« on: March 28, 2012, 01:34:38 AM »
The whole rationale around not eating meat is quite confusing to me. Animals eat other animals, and this is required to keep ecosystems in balance. If spiders didn't eat mosquitos and other bugs, we would suffer plague after plague of them. If birds didn't eat spiders, we would be swimming through cobwebs everywhere, and so on.
Having said that, obviously animals shouldn't live crammed in a small lot doing nothing but getting fat on grain, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't eat meat at all.

Instead, reward the farmers that are doing it right, and let your health reap the benefits.

Diet and nutrition / Re: Article Against the Paleo Diet

The inconsistencies aren't inconsistencies in the paleo diet, they are inconsistencies in that author's understanding of the paleo diet.  Sounds like he just doesn't understand it very well.

If you have specific issues you're concerned about I think people would be happy to address them.
Exactly the impression I got.
Milk for example, I've not heard anyone suggest dairy is out because it MAY contain some amount of lectin from grass...

Diet and nutrition / Re: Juice?
« on: March 19, 2012, 11:35:58 PM »
You can drink all types of juices because they have no fat and protein which causes of over weight. Juices have all the important vitamins which required for healthy growth. Important body organs like lung, kidney, heart these need vitamins and minerals for better working.
Mix fruits have a strong benefits and easy source to get energy.
Why are you here? All of your theories on eating are in direct opposition of the paleo way of eating.

Exercises / Re: Advice on workout program?

You have to  totally neglect of fat and protein foods items which causes of over weight.
I think you might be in the wrong place if that's your opinion.

You can't make a blanket statement like that. I'm completely useless in the morning. Performance for me peaks early afternoon.

Diet and nutrition / Re: The MOST basic

Might I suggest that you remove the chicken/tuna from "I want to eat X amount of chicken/tuna/whatever meat." - on a paleo diet, neither of these really have enough fat to keep you going. You should look at fattier meats, especially grass-fed beef if you can get it.
Beef is about is easy as you can get. Get steak, chuck it on the grill for 15 minutes and then eat it. Or you can get a big slab of rump or something and chuck it in the oven for a while, and just carve off as much as you like whenever you're hungry.
Then just grab some veggies and eat them raw, you don't even need to cut them. Things like carrots, cucumber, broccoli etc you can just give it a wash and eat.

Progress Reports & Photos / Re: Unintended weight loss

Pork belly :D

Tooth shape isn't an infallible indicator of diet, as the huge canines on gorillas will attest to.
No argument for or against is going to be 100% watertight.

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned teeth shape.

Herbivores and carnivores have distinctly different teeth as a result of the type of food they have evolved to eat. Herbivores have large, flat teeth for grinding plants and such, while carnivores have smaller, sharper teeth.
Man has a good mix of both - molars for grinding plants, and incisors and canines for tearing animal flesh. Pointed teeth like the canines in particular, would be of little use to a herbivore. Why would we have them if we hadn't evolved to consume meat?

Diet and nutrition / Re: Blood type diet vs. Paleo diet
« on: March 07, 2012, 02:07:54 PM »

 The blood type diet theory is definitely one of the stupidest ideas that I have ever seen, People do well on it because they switch to a more paleo style diet end of story. The idea that your blood type could determine what you should eat has no foundation in science as mentioned above.
I couldn't agree more. The first time I heard about it I was completely perplexed that people believe this crap. It just panders to the general populations desire for making eating seem more complex, and gives them something else to blame for their dieting failures.

Diet and nutrition / Re: Grass fed butter Australia?
« on: March 05, 2012, 06:57:18 PM »
Yeah I'd hazard a guess that most Australian produced butter would be grass fed. Take a drive through the country and you can see the dairy cows grazing ;)

If I'm eating plenty of fat AND fruit, how does my body know what to burn when I work out or otherwise exert myself?
A few million years of evolution is how.

If sugar is available, sugar is burnt. If not, fat is converted to sugar (in the form of ketones) and is burnt. Obviously that's quite a simplistic view of things, but as I understand it, that's the nutshell.
To the best of my knowledge, sugar is always burnt above fat, which is why many recommend people lower their sugar intake if they're trying to lose weight.

Avoid. Not paleo
I see a lot of people eating green beans on paleo. While they're legumes, they apparently don't contain lectin, which is what rules out other legumes.

Diet and nutrition / Re: Not enough Calories?
« on: February 27, 2012, 02:04:23 PM »
2 suggestions from me:
1. Eat more fat. Chicken breast has almost none, so if you could replace that with a fattier meat it'd be good.
2. Stop counting calories.

I know it's difficult to wrap your head around, but you really can eat as much fast as you like and not have to even consider counting calories.

And of course as the others have mentioned, if you aren't hungry you have no reason to worry. As you approach the weight you should be, you'll find you need more food.
