ebbrown:  Welcome aboard, I'm in Jersey also, near Great Adventure.  My wife, one of my sons and I had breakfast in Avon at a TOTALLY PALEO restaurant called the CAVE, the food was Paleo at a decent price and with excellent coffee.  If you're close to Avon check it out.  JIM

Food Journals / 30 day Paleo Challenge --> but different
« on: August 09, 2015, 01:01:36 PM »
I've completed ONE 30 day Paleo challenge several months ago; now I'm trying a second one, with a twist.  After watching the video on netflix, "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead," I bought a juicer.  Here's my personal challenge: a 10 day juice fast (maybe longer) and Paleo or Juice modified Paleo for the remaining 20 days.  Why not juice for 30 days, you ask --> As a conivor, I think (believe) I need meat or fish on a regular basis.   BTW:  Juicing a bunch of veggies together tastes better than eating them individually.

Diet and nutrition / Re: Negative article in the NY Times
« on: September 21, 2012, 05:58:40 PM »
I am my own man.  I read articles that go against what I believe and stick with what makes sense to me.  The Paleo way of eating has proven beneficial to me, my wife, both of my daughters and one of my five sons.  If the rest of the world wants, or needs, or follows commercial propaganda I let them...I learned long ago not to argue with fools but to lead my life by my beliefs - by what makes sense to me.  For my remaining 20-30 years I'll stay Paleo.

Diet and nutrition / Re: Breakfast?
« on: September 21, 2012, 05:48:03 PM »
I'm a semi-retired 65 year old and only work 3 days a week - Tues, Wed & Thurs - BUT...before you applaud my yearly series of 4 day weekends...I drive over 75.4 miles each way.  Soooo for breakfast, on the days I work, I eat as I drive: a banana, an apple and a grapefruit; I eat them in that sequence and pre-peal the grapefruit the night before.  My cholesterol is within the "ideal" range, my blood pressure is 110 over 70.  On the days I'm home I generally have steak and 3 eggs over easy.  The steak is grass fed and the eggs come from a nearby farmer that lets his chickens out in the morning and puts them in a coop at sundown; which means they eat bugs - like they are supposed to.  Jim Mull

Introductions / re-entry and update to Paleo
« on: July 12, 2012, 09:16:16 PM »
I started Paleo in July of '09 and initially lost 72 pounds --> so far into July, 2012, have kept it off.  I no longer have arthritis/bursitis, I sleep like a baby, I'm rarely hungry, my attention deficits are under control, my S** life is twice what it was before becoming a Caveman and my physical endurance for other activities has improved also.  I live on meat from: Whole Foods, U.S. Wellness and Wegman's Organic selection.  I get frozen fish from those three preceding places as well as local shops (living in NJ there are quite a few fresh fish markets).  I use assorted local veggies with my evening meals.  Snacks consistes of fresh fruits, local berries and nuts.   I've switched from beer to hard cider (read that as Wood Chuck and/or Magner's).  There are times when I have wine with meals or while watching the 11 o'clock news.
 I dehydrate my own beef/chicken/lamb jerky along with multiple fruits. 
NOW: I have enough country space to raise my own chickens, keep bees and grow as much as I can on 2.5 acres of prime virgin land (yes, I need to clear out a lot of trees, shrubs and vines.)  My best advice to YOU and the the world is, "GO PALEO!"

ALLYBELLY:  If you have the time read some of my posts from the past.  I responded a few times about the advantages of Paleo's effect in the bedroom.  JMull

Organic aka Farm Grown --> RAW: Broccoli, Cauliflower, Romaine Lettuce, Asparegus with STEAMED: Carrots & Cabbage tied for 5th place.   EXTRAS: for sustenance and flavoring I'd add Garlic, Onions and Mushrooms.  JMull

Diet and nutrition / Re: Sardines
« on: June 01, 2011, 07:41:28 PM »
Sardines...Mackerel...Herring...Salmon.  I keep several cans/tins of these guys in my office for use when I didn't order lunch, didn't bring lunch and "life gets in the way" so I can't go out for lunch.  They are filling, flavorful and nutritious.  Living in a desolate area of NJ, USA, I keep several cans/tins of the above along with bottles of water in my car incase I get stranded by a snow storm during the winter.  JMULL

I eat breakfast while driving 61.3 miles to work. My BREAKFAST consists of: A banana, an apple and either an orange or a grapefruit.  All washed down with an over-sized mug of green tea.  JMULL

Diet and nutrition / Re: What to drink at the pub
« on: June 01, 2011, 07:10:12 PM »
MAGNER'S: Irish Cider = 125 calories,  0 grams fat, 11 grams Carbs, 11 grams sugar.  They add sulphites but they don't add high fructose corn syrup.  This is a refreshing drink, not too filling, not too light- too bad it isn't always available at some of the places I go to with my wife.  If they have no MAGNER'S I ask for SKYY Vodka and soda or a house white wine.  JMULL

Only ten foods, my list is: 
1. Grass fed Beef - all  & any par.
2. Free range eggs.
3. Ocean grown salmon.
4. Fresh shrimp.
5. Ocean scallops with bay scallops as a back-up.
6. Maine Lobster.
7. Local farm grown broccoli - none of that hydroponic stuff.
8. Wild blueberries - I'll grow my own
9. Organic bananas -  I'll trust Wegman's to be honest.
10. Unsulphurated white wine.

Although I've never had a "six pack" I did have a "keg" for a few decades...  Now I have barely a bar mug.  AND I plan on staying PALEO for the next 20 years...so I may possibly get an abdominal set of "8 ounce cans" before I share a drink with my buddies in hell (or heaven...you never know.)  JMull

Nutmeg:  I quote you from your last post:   "Last Friday I was 154.3 and today I am 152.3."  Well, I'm 168... BUT... I'm slightly taller & vastly older than you.   Most of my weight is now in the form of muscle: I believe I exceed you in --> biceps, triceps, thighs, calves & pectorals (as for pectorals...OK you beat me if glandular tissue is included BUT I'm talking muscle.)  Ergo proportionatly I weigh less than you ...and I've had several decades to put on more weight! I'm glad I went PALEO are you?!?!   LOVE> "DAD" aka JMull

« on: April 19, 2011, 01:46:31 PM »
I worked diligently, for two years before going PALEO to lose weight -> and I did...   BUT I was constantly hungry and according to my wife and seven kids frequently "irritable." PRE-PALEO  I lost about 20 pounds in two years - through excessive excercise and dietary restrictions.
       My FIRST MONTH after going PALEO, I lost 19 pounds --> without feeling hungry and with less time at the YMCA.  I also lost most of my arthritis/bursitis AND gained increased endurance for ALL physical activities (Yes, that one too - ask my wife of 38 years!)  My statement to all of you is, "Paleo works for me!"  JMull
