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 / Just can't get enough of Lamb! :)
« on: February 01, 2011, 02:25:12 PM »
This is probably a rant, but I just can't get enough of grassfed Lamb Shoulder Arm chops! I buy mines at my local Whole Foods Store, and it is thick and VERY marbled. I just love it rare-medium rare with garlic/oregano/hint of mint (fried in beef tallow)! I love sucking and chewing on that nice lamb fat and the bone marrow! OMG! This is how humans should eat! Today as I was eating my fatty meat, I was laughing out load at vegan and vegetarians! LOL! They are missing out on good food!

Am I only one who loves lamb fat?  Go Lamb! Go Lamb! Go Lamb!

Diet and nutrition / Storage of Beef Tallow?
« on: December 29, 2010, 07:40:38 PM »
Hello,

I bought a 5 gallon pail of grass fed beef tallow from US Wellness Meat. I was able to store a lot (about half the pail) in smaller containers and put them in my freezer (I kept one in my refrigerator). However, I can not store any more because my freezer is packed. I closed the pail and is now my kitchen cabinet. Would it go rancid if I leave it there? I made sure that I closed it very tightly.

Pseudo Doctor Robert Young! Congratulation!

Listen to this and tell me if you don't agree---->http://naturalnews.tv/v.asp?v=504FF7BFC0A9176879694EBA8B0141B4

According to him, meat eaters will look like the animals they consume, and you can smell a meat eater vs a vegan! What the fuck!? Oh, and by the way, did you know that "Our bodies do not feed on calories. Our bodies feed on electrons."?

Am I am the only who feels this guy was on crack when he did the video? You could tell it in his eyes! :)

Here is another memorial quote:

""Proteins are harmful to the body and should be eliminated...the body doesn't build muscle and bone out of protein, it builds it out of blood, and blood is built out of light."

Diet and nutrition / Take a deep breath..........

would you eat this?

People are eating this. And yet, America is asking "why are we so darn fat/unhealthy"? Just look at what people are eating. This is unbelievable, but back in my non-paleo days, I would have taken a slice and enjoyed every bite of it!  ;D

I have been interested in bodybuilding, but when I went to a bodybuilding forum, many are during a low fat, high protein/carbs type of diet, the opposite of the Paleo diet. And many posters have such a negative view on the paleo diet and claim you can't build without heavy carbs.

Is is true that one MUST be on such a diet to achieve any results?
Can you build muscles as well as strength, but using fat as main fuel source for workouts, instead of consuming a high carb meal prior to workouts?

Sorry, I am just confuse to the world of bodybuilding and how it can fit in a Paleo lifestyle......

Diet and nutrition / Maybe I am going crazy but.....
« on: May 20, 2010, 09:23:27 PM »
It seems that I am building muscle, or a very tiny muscles in my arms............ :D :D

I been on Paleo for 2 weeks or so. I have been eating lots of lean/fatty meats (maybe 2 pounds per day or slightly more) and lots of fats (mainly from meats, extra virgin olive oil and coconut oil/milk). I have been during push ups (nothing major), squats, and sit ups throughout the day, but I am not "working out" like a pro, but I been witnessing that I am building some muscle in my upper arms or maybe I am just dreaming.....lol

But does being on Paleo allows one to build muscles with little effort? Maybe its all the protein.....lol.

Diet and nutrition / Do you guys "cheat" at times on sweets?
« on: May 03, 2010, 09:06:01 PM »
Hello,

I know that on Paleo, we are not suppose to eat sweets, however, how many of you "cheat" from time to time (a very small portion of "sweet" stuff)? I was wondering this because next month is my birthday, and I WILL eat my piece of cake, and no one will be able to stop me!  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Are you VERY strict when it comes to this area?

Thanks!

Vitamins and Supplements / How Paleo are "Green Drinks" supplements?
« on: April 27, 2010, 03:22:19 PM »
Hello,

I have been drink Vibrant Health Green Vibrance for quite some time, after researching the benefits of the listen ingredients. However, how paleo are Green Drinks in general? Should we include them in our diet? This topic might be debatable, but I would like any feedback from member here.

Thanks in advance,

Diet and nutrition / General Question about Paleo.
« on: April 22, 2010, 03:19:01 PM »
Hello,

So I have starting to get into the Paleo lifestyle (for breakfast today I had two fried eggs, canned of sardines, and 1 medium plub tomato). I have some questions:

1) Do you guys keep track on the amount of meat you eat per day? Or do you just eat until you "satisfied"?

2) I searched the forum and a member suggested that omega 3 eggs should be limited to 6 per week, however I have been eating 1 or 2 eggs per day. Is such limitation usually accepted within the Paleo community?

3) Should I be concern with dietary cholesterol in eggs and meats? I recently read from bodybuilders that dietary cholesterol is crap and will not cause cholesterol problems (totally the opposite what I have been told all my life) in otherwise healthy individual.

4) Does everyone here buy only organic/grass-fed meats? I don't have access to those type of meats in my area but my local supermarket does carry a huge section of meats, very fresh. I buy my meats there. Any thing wrong with that? I am leading to believe that such meats will not have a optimum omega 6:3 ratio, but I am believe I am getting enough omega 3 in my diet (have been taking omega 3 fish oils, eating salmon/sardines, etc).

Thanks for any answers.

Diet and nutrition / Consumption of Red Meat unhealthy?
« on: April 21, 2010, 08:35:09 PM »
Hello,

I am 19 years old and am very interested in the Paleo Diet (not a athletic or trying to lose weight). I don't eat sugar treats or highly processed foods, but am a whole grain lover. I have been starting to cut back (i.e., only been having 1/4 cup of oats for breakfast, 1/2 cup of rice for dinner) and have increase fat and protein (from meats/seafood) consumption considerably. Been experiencing tiredness and dizziness lately though (after searching around that is seem to be normal).

However, I have a question about red meat consumption. One can't escape eating lots of red meat in the Paleo Diet, so what do you guys have to say about several studies suggesting that eating red meat is unhealthy (check this article--->http://www.usatoday.com/news/health/2009-03-24-red-meat-mortality-study_N.htm). Just wondering if the popular belief that red meat is unhealthy is actually true.

Thanks for any comments!
