This is the last thing you want to hear right now.

But I would say to stick with Paleo for now - do NOT count your carbs.

Again, take a breath - you don't want to hear this right now.  But slow and steady wins the race.

Please check back with us shortly - let me know how it's going again

Yes.  I never think about gas etc. - always something I laughed at when grandparents mentioned certain foods causing gas

And then, a week ago, I ate a nice portion of brusssel sprouts - and my stomach was in rare form the next 12 hrs!

Very cool.  We did a huge egg omelette last night for dinner.  8 eggs total.
Tons of different vegetables - we split them half and half for variety.

If you look at the main cuisines in the world, you'll find Paleo ingredients at the heart of many of them, particularly their treatment of meat and vegetables in Asian/Chinese/Vietnamese/American BBQ/Creole/etc.  At a Chinese restaurant the same 3 ingredients may be combined with varying spices/sauces into 50 different meals.

I guess I'm saying seek out inspiration from these types of cuisines as you see fit to avoid getting stuck in a rut...

Diet and nutrition / Re: If oil is paleo, then so is processed sugar

Sure, to some degree this may be true.

Also, oils are used on salads and to cook meat and vegetables often

That is fairly high rate of loss - usually folks shoot for 2 lbs. a week on average of loss or gain of weight.

Do you feel ok?  Not dizzy or lightheaded or nauseous?  Listen to your body - I am not surprised however with your diet improvements.

Miscellaneous / Potato industry targets Paleo diet
« on: January 14, 2017, 04:35:49 AM »

Potato industry leaders have found fault with a diet that seeks to replicate what cavemen ate.

"SALT LAKE CITY — The U.S. potato industry has taken umbrage with a popular dietary fad, which is based on the premise that humans ate healthier during the Stone Age than following the advent of agriculture.

The Paleolithic diet — coined by Colorado State University emeritus professor Loren Cordain — promotes foods that would have been available to hunter-gatherers more than 10,000 years ago — such as grass-fed meat, wild game, nuts, fruits and non-starchy vegetables.

In addition to processed foods and salt, the popular diet frowns upon some of the major commodities produced in the Northwest, including potatoes, cereals, dairy, sugar and legumes. Cordain reasons the foods weren’t present during the Paleolithic Period, and humans, therefore, haven’t adapted to eating them.

Cordain vows Paleo dieters achieve weight loss, reduced diabetes and diseases, increased energy, fewer allergies, better digestion and increased muscle. Critics counter that modern foods, developed over centuries of selective breeding, don’t resemble Paleolithic foods. They also note the diet’s conspicuous absence of Stone Age dietary staples — such as rats, mice, squirrels, stripped bark, insects and lizards — and question the wisdom of emulating an ancient people who typically died in their 30s.

The potato industry — still seeking to improve consumer perceptions affected by the low-carbohydrate Atkins diet craze — recently launched a campaign highlighting the importance of the spud’s protein, vitamin C, potassium and carbohydrates to athletic performance.

“I think a lot of people are really getting tired of all of these really restrictive diets and are more interested in learning how to eat properly in a way they can work into their lifestyle, based on the basic ideas of moderation and good diversity,” said John Toaspern, chief marketing officer with Potatoes USA."
