Buffalo wings of various flavors.  Pork ribs if you don't mind a little bit of a mess.  Also, carrot sticks and fruit.

I mostly fry everything, but only because I'm pressed for time; if I had more time, I'd make more stews.

As a result, I don't have a lot of variation.  Hamburger, bacon and eggs, steak when I'm splurging, omelettes with some variation in filling, salmon once every week or two, some greens.

Then again, I seem to remember an account of a westerner spending a winter with the Inuit a century or so ago, and they basically had fish stew all winter with no variation.

slowing down... I have a potato yearning... Should I give in or resist. Thinking of a baked spud with butter.
Resist!  Resist!  Oh, sorry, didn't log on in time to post a timely response.

Agreed with JayJay.  I find I'm happiest with about 85% of calories from fat.  That's the equivalent of about 66% lean meat.  Bacon is about the only meat that is that fatty, and even bacon is not super strict paleo.

I do save my bacon grease, and I've recently been experimenting with eating more fried mushrooms and onions to use it, but that's extra cooking time.

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".

Research / Re: Who lives longest: meat eaters or vegetarians?

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.
