 a) It will be really important that you make sure to increase your servings of the foods that you eat. Some people are going to look at your portions and think that you are crazy to eat half a kilo of meat or huge plates of salads for example. But remember that you are removing quite a lot of what used to be your source of energy in the shape of carbohydrates.  Make sure that you get enough fat, never cut away rinds for example. It takes a little while to adapt.

 b) I don't think that it matters very much whether one eats free range eggs or others. This is more of an ethical animal protection issue. The main determinant of your health is how much you exercise.

 c) Not as I see it, you could add cheeses as your "cheat" if you are worried

It is a great advantage if you can shop at some kind of supermarket rather than a restaurant. Then you can get fruits, some veggies and maybe some kind of premade meal?

It depends on how much fruit you take. You can be on paleo and only take small amounts of fruit and veggies if you wish, then it is a type of Atkins diet. When reading the Atkins book, his recommendations are strikingly close to Paleo.

 Do you have trouble falling asleep if you eat very late? I find it to be quite the opposite, I sleep much easier if I have eaten. And I imagine that old hunters would have done that too, having been out hunting in the day and then getting back to the cave.

 The last post is good, lots of alternatives with fruits, veggies et.c.. And let me add that smoked foods like bacon are cancerogenic and not safe to eat. I would not even call them paleo.

 The blood type diet theory is definitely one of the stupidest ideas that I have ever seen, People do well on it because they switch to a more paleo style diet end of story. The idea that your blood type could determine what you should eat has no foundation in science as mentioned above.

Diet and nutrition / Bacon
« on: February 12, 2012, 03:20:34 AM »

 I am quite surprised to see so many people mention bacon as their paleo food of choice in the posts here. It may seem like a convenient intake but everyone should be clear that a) most commercial bacons are filled with either sugar or salt and b) smoked foods are heavily linked to cancer. It is most definitely not good to have it repeatedly as your day to day breakfast for example.

Could it be that you just like the taste of it? I find that dairy works quite well for me as long as it is plain (no sugar added) and quite close in compositon to other more clear cut paleo foods like meat et.c.. Plus it is much more convenient to bring on travels.

Much like the other posters here, I can't see why that would make any kind of sense. You will find the different blood types in any kind of population so how can you claim that a person descending from an Arctic environment should eat the same thing as someone from the Sahara desert just because they are both type A or whatever? It works because it gets people off lots of bad things so actually it has "borrowed" a lot from paleo and presented it as his own.

 The biggest problems from my perspective is dehydration and deprivation of sleep. If you constantly will not allow your body to get the rest that it needs it will not be good for your health, stress levels et.c.. So this can be seen as paleo in the sense of making sure that you in the long run provide your body with the amount of recuperation that it has been "programmed" for.

Let me add that your bacon might be a problem too. Not only are smoked foods carcinogenic but if you buy them commercially there might be sugar in them you need to check that. My advice is to replace it with some other type of meat.

 Is that not just a copy of Atkins with some adjustments?


Diet and nutrition / Re: Recommended Fish Oil dosages?
« on: April 10, 2010, 07:41:07 AM »
Does anyone have a good rule of thumb for fish oil supplements, such as amounts per day and levels of EPA/DHA and all that? I do eat fish, but probably not a lot of it.

What do _you_ take?

 Does anyone know if the meat in Greek food like gyros is
normally marinated with "bad stuff" or could be paleo?

 Do you guys think that grass fed is so much better from the health point of view? I would say that the difference beteween grass and corn fed is rather small compared to the big shift of starting paleo versus a "normal" diet. Make sure that you get enough exercise also seems more crucial.

 When comparing prices, take into account how much meat and fat you actually get for your money. Chicken pieces may seem a lot cheaper, but the bones take up a chunk of each pund that you pay for (unless you eat them too). The same goes with products where they have removed the fat.

 You should make sure that you are not being shortchanged too. They should make sure that you pay for net weight and not the packaging, but that is not always certain in all places. Ask me if you want to know how to check that.
