Date sugar, if it's sugar extracted from dates like it sounds like, is not paleo.  Dates and almonds are paleo, but whether you want to include them depends on what your goal is for going paleo.  If you want to reduce fat, they're better to leave out, focusing on meat and green vegetables instead.

Donglailly, less veggies and fruit, especially fruit, might help.  Also, cut out any starchy "vegetables".  However, to really identify the culprit, you'd need to start a food journal and write down everything you eat.  Then people who have been here a while would be able to point out likely culprits.

If you stick to strict paleo for a few months, it likely won't taste bitter any more.  For example, 86% chocolate tastes sweet, not bitter, to me.

Oats are grains and not paleo.  If you're going to have that much oats in your pancakes, you might as well have regular wheat flour pancakes.

You don't need daily or frequent bowel movements.  When I'm very strictly paleo I often go two or three days between bowel movements.

If you really want more frequent bowel movements, you can eat more fruit, providing sugar to the gut bacteria that make up the bulk of stool.  That just benefits the bacterial, though, not you.

The paleo diet means eating as close to what humans ate during the paleolithic as is reasonably possible today.

Iím new here so donít mind me much but I live in an area where large number of native artifacts are found that date 3 to 6 thousand years old and they defiantly ground flour. From my other studies paleo people have been making flour for over 30,000 years. Iím no paleontologist or paleo diet expert so donít quote me on that.

3 to 6 thousand years ago is well into the neolithic in most places, so it isn't paleo.  Also, carrying around large stones for grinding seems
unlikely for hunter gatherers.

Hi there, you can also try corns, milk, fruits and shakes.
Not if you want to stay paleo, you can't.

I hope you guys don't mind me splitting this into a separate topic.

loelaj, I would guess that most likely your scale isn't that accurate; most bathroom scales are not.  In some cases, though, people see muscle gains that compensate for fat loss initially, if they were previously not eating sufficient meat.

The amount of meat and eggs you are eating now is sufficient to maintain muscle mass, but if you felt like eating more, it wouldn't be harmful.

After you reach your goal weight you will need to eat more fat, but for now you don't need to unless you want to.  Less fruit might decrease the hunger as it would reduce the insulin spikes.

Yeah, I've had nurses tell me that juice is the next worst thing to soft drinks - and they weren't even paleo.  Whole fruit is the way to go for fruit.

Things definitely taste sweeter once one quits eating refined carbs.  I can only suppose that the taste bulbs get burned out by a nonpaleo diet and are given a chance to grow back on paleo, or something.

Good job on skipping the alcohol!

Kangaroo meat is pretty lean; if you're cooking for the kids they might need more calories from fat or fruit.  Roast pork belly should be good, though.

Good job on starting a food journal, and especially admitting to the nonpaleo parts of it.  Looks like a good start, and it looks like you know some of the things you need to work on.

If you have time to cook breakfast, you could switch to bacon & eggs or the like.

What's S&P?
