Diet and nutrition / Re: How to gain on Paleo?

What do you think about fruit juices as calorie/ carb supplement? If I squeeze an orange is it even nearly same as eating the solid fruit?

No way...Fruit juice is worthless IMO without the rest of the fruit.  You just as well drink a pop...same difference just sugar water, no fiber to help your body break it down. W/out the fiber your body sees the juice and treats it as sugar and stores it as fat.

In my case that would be OK but I really don't do most fruit juices. For the new paleo person wanting to lose weight or whatever...your pissing in the wind drinking fruit juice.

The amount of sugar in bacon is negligible compared with most cold cuts or imitation crab meat. Still I would avoid candied bacon or maple or brown sugar flavored varieties. It was said once already, but pork belly also called "uncured bacon" is a good option if you want to cut out all sugars.

Diet and nutrition / Constipation
« Last post by danipr86 on November 16, 2014, 11:23:32 AM »
Hello.

Over a year and a half ago I started to follow the Paleolithic diet. Since then, I've stopped for a few months for various reasons, but I know that is the right way to feed myself and I have resumed again. I have benefited from its advantages in regard to vitality and weight loss, but I have a serious problem of constipation, which I did not have when I was eating in the "normal" way. After months eating in the Paleolithic way, my body should have been used to it, but the problem remains.

My daily schedule of meals is:

  Breakfast with fruit, nuts, cocoa and coconut. Occasionally avocados and animal fats like bacon, or meat or eggs proteins.
  A mid-day meal with a starter of vegetables and a main course with about a quarter of a kilo of meat. Since I have no weight problems, I usually eat tubers such as potatoes or carrots. Sometimes I also add dried fruits to lunch or dinner.

A dinner with a vegetable starter and fish as a main course, generally oily fish or eggs. I jog twice a week, and three days a week I do high intensity weight training, so I usually add an extra carbohydrate intake in the form of sweet potatoes.

Over the weekends I commit small sins eating some forbidden food, and I also do intermittent fastings, skipping one or two of the three daily meals.

Since I started the paleo diet my intestinal transit has not been normal. I do not defecate daily. I usually spent two or three days without going to the bathroom, and alternate that with days of diarrhea. Other days the feces are huge. I am feeling bloated and it's starting to be a problem.

I was recommended to increase the intake of fats. I did it for a while without seeing improvements. I also tried to add prunes, to no avail. My mood is good and I have no problems with stress.

What's happening? Is there any solution to this constipation problem?

Thank you very much and best regards.

Thank you very much and best regards.

Either you don't eat enough or you exercise too much, imo. I suggest you should eat more fruits and animal fat.
btw, I really admire your result from eating Paleo. And what a positive perspective you got there, I'm inspired to try harder, thanks! :D

In my opinion, bacon is still a kind of processed food. If you want to follow a strict diet, then it's not a good choice, even if it contains a little to none gram of sugar.
How about trying fresh pork belly instead, or other kinds of meat? :)

I'd have to agree Eric. Could just be nerves, body feels a little different than it normally does, so it gets a little jittery over some mild anxiety.

I live in the socially regressive state of Alabama and I assure you that the Paleo diet is well off everyone's radar here. Many of my co-workers eat white bread or pizza or pasta everyday, gush enthusiastically about the fact that a Dunkin' Donuts (forbidden Yankee cuisine) opened across the street, and say that they wish they had motivation to exercise, but consistently fail to do anything about it. I swear the administrative assistant/webmaster goes up a jean size every year. And when I bring in food like lamb, shrimp, or game meat they call it "weird stuff". One female coworker of mine brags about how she is the same size as she was in college. Of course that's because she's anorexic and her complexion is so terrible she has to hide behind a quarter inch of makeup. I'm sure in some places the Paleo diet is gaining traction, but in my part of the world, I assure you that sales of Mountain Dew are not suffering.
