Tubers are not paleo, but they most assuredly "primal". :)

That's a reasonable description.

Quote
Unlike the Paleo Zealots, Mark Sisson, Robb Wolf, and others, have taken a more practical approached to the whole issue. I like how Mark Sisson puts it. If you are trying to lose weight, or have medical issues (like diabetes) or starchy tubers just don't sit well for you, then it will be wise not to consume them. If you are in a healthy weight, and active, then adding these to your diet (while still keeping your carb on lowish side) is not a bad idea.

It's to be noted that Sisson, at least, seems to think white rice is not so bad, either.  The antinutrients in rice are in the bran, which white rice doesn't have:

That's at least a consistent opinion.  Those who are willing to cheat on paleo with tubers because they don't cause any immediate problems for them are in no position to throw stones at those who cheat with grains.

I might also add that Mark advocates 150 grams or less of carbohydrates per day (and he thinks they are far better options than white rice if one wished to increase carbs), and unlike some here, have not made the paleo nutrition into a religion with far too much dogmas based on flawed reasoning. Rather, he and others, have taken a more practical approached to paleo/primal nutrition.  Whatever fits your boat.

We have lots of evidence on the effects on wheat, etc, on the health, yet where it is the evidence that consuming tubers (while still being low carb) is dangerous to health? You can't put both on the same table. Eating some sweet potato and eating a big bowl of pasta or wheat are not the same thing.

I don't see anything wrong with consuming Starchy Tubers/Root Vegetables, as long as one keep their carb consumption on the low side. I generally eat Sweet Potatoes (different varieties), yucca, winter squashes, unripe/ripe plantains, parsnips, taro, etc, but I never exceed 150grams of carbohydrates per day (15-20% of my daily calories comes from starchy, non-starchy vegetables and fruits). While I personally chose to eat tubers, the buck of my calories comes from fat, then protein.

If you have some time:

Mashed oven baked Kambocha Squash (with butter/cinnamon) (should take only 40 minutes in a 425 degrees oven for a small one)  topped with 2-3 fried eggs and two slices of baked bacon. You can add some ground beef on the side if you want.

So good!

Diet and nutrition / Re: How many of you eat organ meat?
« on: May 30, 2011, 10:57:45 PM »
I buy local, organic, 100% grassfed beef liver weekly. Pan-seared (rare) with lots of onions and some mashed apio (celeriac root) on the side! Heaven!  ;D

I haven't tried other organs (heart, tripe, kidneys, etc), but I will.

I wonder how brains (yes, you heard me right) taste, as many Primal/Paleo seems to like that.

I do my steaks, lamb loin/arm/blade/rib chops rare-medium rare. I like them that way.

Now that we on the subject,  many cuts require "well done all the way through" (long/slow cooking) because they are very tough. I do not see a problem with that, even though nutrients will be lost in the process.

The real issue is cooking your meats till they are black and unrecognizable! They create cancer causing agents. Lightly charred on the outside is not bad, just don't take it to the extreme.......

Of course. They are a bit carby, though.

I love them with lots of butter! Oh gosh...........I am getting hungry!  :)

I love my meatloaf with lots of grease (the more the merrier!:)) I always add bacon, sausage, and grassfed beef tallow to all my meatloaf

Why do you care or even notice how idiots look at you or think about you?

I don't care. I just felt a little strange, that's all. I won't stop following the Paleo WOE just because of idiots.

I am pretty sure you would "notice" if you walk into a crowd, and everybody's eyes is on you with a strange face......lol.

O.k, so today I went to my local WF and got a good 2 week worth of meat (100% grassfed Ground beef, stew, chuck steak, ribeyes, grain fed ribs steaks, local lamb round bone chops, local pasture pork chops, etc), pasture eggs, butter and heavy cream. I got the "OMFG, all that meat? You are killing yourself" look by many people there (the butcher was nice and very helpfull, I guess he was happy that I was purchasing lots of his meats). One even shake her hand while looking at my cart as I passed by (she thought I didn't notice). I felt so stranger that I just quickly checked out. I felt like a "outsider".  People was just staring at my cart as I passed by them. Terrible feeling, I tell you!

And you know what most had in their carts? Lots of whole grains, soy products, low fat milk, yogurt, cheese, processed junks, etc. The only paleo thing in people's carts was meats (very small qualities and only a few had meats), fruits, and veggies. I am guessing that most were vegans/vegetarians.

Have this ever happened to you? People give you strange looks because your cart is filled with fatty meats, butters, eggs, etc? I don't care what people think, but gosh! People don't stare at you when you go to a fast food joint or chow down a bag of potatoes chips.

Anyway, just wanted to share my recent experience at WFM.

Diet and nutrition / Re: Understanding paleo and grass-fed meat
« on: April 01, 2011, 10:03:23 PM »
I don't understand how anyone doing grass-fed paleo can get enough fat in their diet? I just had a couple of pork belly cuts arrive and they are so lean. I couldn't imagine getting 200 grams of fat from grass-fed meat. Any suggestions?

Yea, grassfed meats are generally leaner (urg! I hate the fact that my local WF only sells lean 100% grassfed ground beef, and their 100% grassfed rib eyes, strip steaks, etc are so damn lean!), but I have a 5 gallon pail of 100% grassfed Beef Tallow so I just add lots of fats to my grassfed beef!

But it depends on the cut and where you source your meat. It is not impossible to get lots of fats from grassfed meats (point taken, NZ lamb chops shoulder, blade, loin, rib, are very fatty).

Do what works for you. Let your body guide you. If your body wants more, then you will be hungry. Listen to your body.

I eat two meals per day (2,500-3,000 calories)  (with maybe 1 or 2 snacks) since going Primal/Paleo over a year ago and I have lost body fat, have more energy, etc.

I have to have big lunch (I skip breakfast) (which usually consist of 10-14 ounces of a fatty meat fried or roasted with 100% grassfed beef tallow or a lean meat [8-10 ounce) that has been fried/roasted in 100% grassfed beef tallow, with some steamed veggies/butter on the side). I feel great after having a big, fatty, protein rice lunch.

Mercury is not a issue in fish:

The high content of selenium in fish will bind with mercury and filter it out of your body On this note. one will have high levels of selenium if one is following the Paleo/PB (assuming you are eating high quality eggs, beef, etc) regardless of the levels in fish.

I stick to wild caught mackerel and tuna. I don't have access to fresh wild caught Atlantic salmon, so I stick to those for my omega 3's.

Diet and nutrition / Re: What do you snack on?
« on: March 25, 2011, 12:42:03 AM »
I only have 1 or 2 snacks per day (I eat 2 large meals and do Intermittent Fasting, anywhere from 12-17 hours)

Snacks for me are either:

-Semi-Soft/hard-boiled eggs. I cooked them in advance and store them in the fringe (shelled on) and snack on those at times.
-Pork Rinds
-Canned Salmon/Tuna/Sardines.
- Dark Chocolate (85% cocoa content). I know, they are not Paleo/Primal, but Dark Chocolate are "acceptable" snacks (remember, the more cocoa content, the less sugar)
- Fruits (I mostly have them in the spring/summer)
- Nuts (don't have them often because they very high in omega 6's)
- Spoonfuls of Organic Extra Virgin Coconut oil. Super Delicious!  ;)
