Welcome back.

I can totally imagine cave men wanting to pick bits of stuff out from between their teeth.

I have one nonliteral bone to pick with the report, though.  The phrase "starchy" is kind of misleading with respect to the original paper, since the paper characterizes grass as "starchy".

I have a couple of thoughts.

The first one is basically what JayJay said.  There are all sorts of confounding factors in these studies; people who eat more meat tend also to eat more potatoes, bread, to smoke more, etc.

The second one is that supercentenarians - people over the age of 110 - all tend to eat animal protein in the form of meat or eggs.  The meat free folks seem to be winnowed out by then.

That said, I see the primary benefit of paleo as better health, especially in mature years.  If you really want to live longer, you have to look at things like calorie restriction, and that may not be worth the tradeoff for everyone.

Hey Mitch, I was in your exact same shoes a little over a year ago. By sticking to the Paleo lifestyle, I lost over 110 lbs in a year. It can be done. Just be dedicated to it 100%. Analyze your relationship with food and change it. You have made it through boot camp; you can do this. Let me know if you have any questions or need tips.

I don't see how cooking in lard would be different from simply choosing fattier meat, at least for pork.

That said, if one is trying to lose weight faster, reducing the fat content can accelerate how fast one uses fat from one's body.  This doesn't seem to be necessary for men to lose weight at an acceptable pace, but I'm not sure about women.

Thanks for the update, Jayjay - always good to get the post mortem.

Sorry to hear about the presbyopia.  One of my biggest regrets is that I started paleo just too late to avoid presbyopia, though in my case I got it the normal way.

Welcome.  Just stick to fresh whole meat, green vegetables, and fruit, and you'll be amazes at the results.  Once you reach your ideal weight you may have to add some extra fat back in, but you don't need to worry about that just yet.

Regardless, you should eat meat with plenty of fat, especially if you are low carb.

This.  Sometimes I make Whole Foods cut a new roast from a primal so I can get it without any trimming of the fat.

You might consider replacing some of the carbs with animal fats.

I get small amounts of gas when I have fruit in any form other than fresh whole fruit  - not just dried fruit, but even apple sauce - though  I haven't had painful gas since I went paleo and cut out the potatoes.  You might try cutting out the dried fruit when things go bad, or even temporarily cutting all fruit for a day or two.

I'd first recommend getting enough water and salt.
