Diet and nutrition / Re: Since we're eating paleo

Plus the womenfolk would be wandering round collecting all sorts of not massive and dangerous food.

I'm pretty sure my wife would have been helping out with the hunts....

Research / Re: Long term low carb studies

I agree with the study, however I think we are defining low carb differently. For me, low carb is less than 50g/day.
I think that qualifies as "very low carb", at least.  To the nonpaleo world, 100g/day qualifies as well into the "low carb" range.

Sweet potato, hummus, and soy milk are not paleo, but I wouldn't expect them to cause bloody urine.  I agree with those that say to see a doctor.

Only a couple of snows, both fairly light for the area, up here in Boston so far this winter.  It's so weird seeing 24" in DC when we get nothing.

Diet and nutrition / Re: salami?

They're like hot dogs:  nonpaleo because of salt and other preservatives, and sometimes grain based additives.

That said, I'd consider all meat salami and hot dogs to be better than, say, bread or milk.

I've done a stupid thing. I'm afraid of making mayonnaise from scratch. And rightly so, I have wasted many ingredients when the condiment won't congeal. So I broke down and bought a large thing of Best Foods mayonnaise.

If you can make yourself throw it out, that will help a lot.  You'll think twice before taking something off the supermarket shelf if you know you'll just throw it out later.

I also need to find out how to boil eggs in a way that does not result in a dried-out yoke with that nasty gray stuff. I've had good boiled eggs before. I know it can be done!

Put them in the pot with cold water, bring them to a boil, and let them boil for three or four minutes for hard boiled eggs.  Then pour out the hot water and - this is key - fill the pot with cold water.  The water may heat up again after a minute or so; pour it out again and replace it with cold water again.  This cooling down prevents the yolks from overcooking and turning grey.

If you don't mind the yolks being partially liquidy in the middle, you can boil for 30 seconds instead of three minutes - adjusting a bit for egg size - then pour out the hot water.  In this case, you don't need to replace it with cold water; just get rid of the hot water so the eggs don't continue to cook.

I recommend the original - not the updated - Joy of Cooking for all sorts of tips like this.

Mine does still have a smell to it.  I hear it shouldn't.  Is it still alright?

Grass fed tallow does have a very mild aroma, so it's probably fine.

Yes, thanks, Tarlach!

I think the brand may be a factor as well.

It was Green & Black 85%.  However, almost all brands use sugar, which was almost certainly the problem.

most dark chocolate is horrible to me!

Well, it's not strictly paleo anyway, so it certainly won't hurt you to skip it.

Just note that 85% dark is still nonpaleo and can still cause problems.  See my cautionary tales #1:

Very small amounts may be okay, but it's harder to limit cheats to small amounts when stressed.

At some point, someone posted a link to a video, I think on this forum, presenting a study that showed that a low carb diet was the most effective for losing weight.  The study was done by a vegetarian.  I've looked for a while but can't find it.  Does anyone remember it who can point me to it?

So I am hoping switching to meat only will help kick start my weight loss again.

It might not be a long term loss, but going to zero carb for a week could lose you the 4 lb you need.  Go to the bathroom before the test!

Basically, I'm more lax than most people in that I feel if it was eaten like 5000 years ago, it's probably ok.

5000 years ago is definitely neolithic - not paleo by any stretch.  By that rule, you could eat rice, bread and pasta.
