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.

Interesting, though the fact that we ate some fruit hardly means that we had a "plant based diet".

I have a full set of Wusthof Culinar knives - 6, 8 and 10 inch chef's knives, 8 and 10 inch slicers, meat fork, boning knife, paring knife, "sandwich" knife, utility knife, bread knife (never used), tomato knife (rarely used), diamond sharpener, steel, and 12 steak knives (used a lot).  I absolutely love them.  They are expensive, but I've been using them for about a decade; they replaced my Wusthof Classics which I had used for a couple of decades before.

More on the chef's knives here:

Or they could just take the milk out....

Also presbyopia and loss of hearing.

Personally I wouldn't be able to handle the candy, but it sounds like it's working for you.

I just buy whatever's in the grocery store.  I buy 1000 mg tablets.

My kids get 500mg chewables.
