Introductions / Hello everyone
« Last post by Aeonir on Today at 12:32:48 PM »
Currently i am trying to become as paleo as possible so i signed up with several forums and groups. I have the general rules down i think, however i do have trouble balancing the quantities of meat, fish, eggs and vegetables... And my bank account balance... I think i'm making this more expensive than i should, and soon more expensive than i can afford. (My income will go down with 5% and taxes will go up by 3%, nice combo.)

So i'll need to bring down my meat consumption a bit yet still get in enough fat, which'll be a challenge.

Diet and nutrition / Bugs...
« Last post by Aeonir on Today at 10:51:49 AM »
If things go the way the dutch government have planned, i might need to actually go foraging to be able to afford food, while it would be the ultimate paleo diet that way. It would also mean breaking laws, as i'll never be able to get a hunting license here... So foraging for plant matter is already frowned upon but that is possible, a fishing license is not hard to get either.

However i read a lot about bugs being high quality protein sources, and while mealworms are easy to farm they are usually farmed on oats, so i was wondering if anyone here has experience with eating bugs and knows which ones are easy to culture and not too gross to prepare.

Hi there, wishing your daughter the best in her recovery and new lifestyle goals :)

I'd go with "socially acceptable" Paleo or Paleo-ish things since she's a 12 year old girl with friends.
You don't want her to feel like an outsider or be called "weird" - I understand girls at that age..

Perhaps beef jerky - there are so many varieties and types.  Or pepperoni.  Apples.  Fruit that travels well.  Dried fruit if you must.  Celery and almond butter or similar.  I second the eggs (hardboiled) suggestion.

Good luck - let us know!   Oh, also could try those tuna pouches - some have seasoning on them.

My go to snacks are fruit and hard boiled eggs( cold, peeled, ready to eat. Also canned salmon, canned shrimp, lettuce, cucumbers, any raw veggies really. Not really meals but put together could provide some basic nutrition. Hope this helps. Glad your daughter is doing well
Diet and nutrition / Paleo kid away for the weekend

My 12 year old daughter has been on paleo for the last couple months, to help with her constant headaches she was experiencing after a concussion. In a few weeks she will be away for the weekend with her softball team. I can't go with her. Any tips on how to prepare and send her with easy and convenient paleo meals for the whole weekend? Anytime she deviates from paleo now she feels crappy, and I'd hate for her to be feeling bad for a long softball weekend. Thanks!

I haven't had over 25 grams of carbs in 5 days and I'm now just barely producing ketones. Prior to these 5 days I had several days of highly restricted carbs in relation to my normal diet(about 50 grams a day). I know ketone strips are not the most reliable but I've been testing a few times a day for the last several days and I'm gradually getting darker and darker readings- I'm just now testing at a level ever so slightly above "small" and into "moderate" ketone production.

I also take frequent bike rides. Several of these over the last week have been 1.5 hours long, with intermittent periods of coasting and fairly intense riding. I feel absolutely horrible. I have trouble sleeping, extremely fatigued, eyes dry and burning, etc.
Are some people not biologically wired to a ketogenic diet? I actually feel like my cravings are getting worse and worse as the days go on- dying for some cookies, ice cream, and pizza.
This is miserable. The thought of any more meat, spinach, kale, asparagus, eggs, almonds, walnuts, olive oil, coconut oil, or shredded coconut disgusts me.

I guess my main question is- can I add some stevia to my foods? I know this doesn't really have sugar, but I've heard conflicting things regarding whether or not it will take one out of ketosis. I don't think I can go much longer like this. The whole thing is confusing to me because when I'd been only a few days with lowered carbs and then a couple of days with basically no carbs I was feeling pretty good. Now my cravings are worse than ever. Yesterday I only had 20 grams of net carbs. Shouldn't it be getting easier as the days go on?
I feel your pain bro :( Keto diet can be a mess. A few years ago I was on keto and it was a disaster. I was cranky all the time, nervous, anxious,my hands were shaking... Also, I had zero energy for my daily activities. The problem was that I wasn't eating enough. I felt sick to my stomach every time I had to eat. I mean cooked chicken and grilled fish every day... And I am not a fish fan. However, I started counting my nutrients with MyFitnessPal and keto calculator and I realized that I was not eating enough. needless to say I didn't lose a single pound in 4 weeks. After the whole keto fiasco I switched to carb cycling. Much more efficient in my opinion. I never looked better in my entire life. So, the bottom line is, be very careful with keto diet, count your nutrients and if you can't handle craving switch to carb cycling.

Welcome.  Stick with meat - including fish and eggs - fruit, and leafy greens and you'll do fine.  If you are trying to lose weight, don't overdo the fruit.

Yup, I agree with this. You'll never go wrong with these type of intakes. :)
