Diet and nutrition / Re: What are your thoughts on Cold Cuts?

What about packaged smoked salmon?  Its easy to get in Oregon.  Seems better than "pressed meat".

Any meat that is left over.  If not, then eggs.  It was weird for me at first too, but now its normal for my stomach.

IMO - COFFEE is the hub in the wheel of life. The DARKER and STRONGER the BETTER!!!!!!!!  ;D

P.S. Green coffee beans cause nausea and vomiting. The odor is horrendous.
Here!  Here!  Let him speak!  The only reason that your cavemen didn't drink coffee is because they didn't have those little demitasse cups for their espresso.

I was just about identical to you and had the same effects.  Everyone kept saying be patient your body is adjusting.  They were right.  Stay on track and listen to your body.  It'll even out.  Except the coffee thing.  I don't advocate quitting coffee.  That's just sick!

Diet and nutrition / Re: Fatty Meat Makes Me Sick?

You'll get plenty of answers but I don't think they'll be negative.  My opinion: then don't eat it.  Eat the lean meat that you enjoy.  A popular opinion with lots of folks here is the enjoyment and health benefits of fatty meat.  But there are lots that only eat the lean stuff too. 

According to Cordain and a lot of people who wrote in their testimonials, lean meat and veggies AND fruit are good for you.  There will always be a difference of views on things.  I, myself was surprised at the lack of  "anti-veggie-eaters" at the forum until I posted a thread about it.  Turns out my impression was a little off.  Most here eat veggies. 

So just in case you're not calloused by years of forum use, take everything in stride and remain objective.  Take the basics and advice and try them for yourself.  You'll find your zen soon.  And then share back with the forum for the next guy who will no doubt have the same concerns. 

Hope this helped.

Would either of you care to put the alkaline and acid discussion into child terms?

According to Cordain's data bananas and plums are not acid forming. I found another website that says potatoes and bananas are very alkaline ( This other website also says bananas are alkaline ( I also found other which claim the opposite, as the site you mentioned.

It seems there's contradicting data on some of the fruits, but most are alkaline according to all sources. (That's why I said "most fruits" in my initial post)


It is a struggle for the newcomer to try and pick a source to rely on.  As time goes on, obviously, I'll be able to rely on my own experience.  But with such a contraversial WOE, it is difficult to pin down.  My family often says things like, "wait I thought you couldn't....".

Veggies are not for cows.  Sorry.....But I get your meaning.  I envy and respect all of ya'lls experience learning about foods. 

I suppose this is why there is a forum; discussion.

Thanks for the input thus far.

It does seem to be common that most of you avoid much fruit.  Is it safe to say that you've all overcome your sweet-tooth?  Obviously I'm very early in the quest and I still have it. 

I don't eat try and stay pure-Paleo, closely resembling the ancestors from many generations ago.  I eat Paleo because its the best source of food for humans.  I don't think we were created to eat all the processed stuff.  I think we were provided with the food that was perfect for keeping our bodies running and healthy.  My "generation" following is not near 500 generations ago.  Thats my personal belief.

I am not saying that you "meaters" are wrong.  Far from it.  I'm just hoping for a little more input from the "veggie includers", so that my new journey with be equally biased to personal discovery.   

I have found that if I eat a carrot and a piece of celery, it takes the cravings for more food away.  For all I know the combination makes me nauseas.  It does something.

Diet and nutrition / Blood glucose monitor-handy or not

Is a blood glucose monitor something that would help to determine how certain foods affect certain people?  Is it handy to have and use?

So there are some of you; good.  I was feeling intimidated by the bulk of the meat eaters, and was wondering if this was turning into a meat only site. 

I think I can relate a little to all of you who have posted so far.  Kinda.  Definitely the financial part.  As I am the meal maker I am always thinking, "do I have any meat prepared?  What will I eat for breakfast and lunch as the meat isn't done yet?  How do these folks afford meat for four, three meals a day?"

It also just seems right to include fruit and vegetables as it's obviously been created for consumtion.  I feel some of the meat-only views are a bit radical as far as balance is.  I know "Bear" is proof, but.....

Diet and nutrition / The Meat AND Veggies thread
« on: November 03, 2009, 09:28:20 AM »
I've noticed that a majority of threads center around a meat dominance.  I want to try staying closer to the plan laid out in Cordains book for personal reasons.  It just feels right to me.  But there's not a lot of talk about plates full of meat AND veggies. 

I'm leary about deviating so far from the book this early in the game. 

As always, posts in forum format are not necessarily intended the way they sound; I'm guilty of that myself.  But I would like to hear comments from the veggie and fruit folks as well. 

Obviously if there are more carnivores than 'combos' then there won't be many responses, I realize that.   ::)  Anyone want to contribute their VeggieTales?

What a great introduction!  And a great testimony for the benefits of the Paleo WOE.

Diet and nutrition / Re: "Give up meat to save the planet".... ???
« on: October 27, 2009, 08:45:09 AM »
It's only because of grains that we have enough food to feed all of the people on the planet.  There will be a collapse soon, unless we restrict population growth, or the average diet and our environment start killing people before breeding age.

What do humans taste like?

 ::)  Sorry... ::) ::) ::)

Yes: that is humorous.  ;D  I haven't had anything fly out of my hands yet but I will count that as a safety tip.  It was good of your partner to be understanding.
