  • Paleos were mean to me :-(

    so I went on caveman forum and posted a typical meal
    Plan and got told I wasn't paleo but more like primal! So I am trying it over here.

    I have cut out carbs and am trying to replace with veg and protein.

    So here is a typical day.... Do I fit in with you guys?

    Breakfast - 2 poached eggs and chicken

    Snack - cashew nuts

    Lunch - salad with egg and pulled ham and small amount of homemade Mayo!

    Snack - coconut yoghurt

    2.5 hour hilly training ride

    Dinner - omlette with mushrooms and tomato

      hahahaha what forum was that? I'd love to go read what those bozos are on about... especially because that sample menu is pretty damn paleo, what did they say was more 'primal' ? the mayo?
      I used to seriously post here, now I prefer to troll.

        Apparently ham, tomatoes, cashews and yoghurt are not paleo.

        I had pointed out I wasn't dropping dairy yet!

              Who the funk ever said tomatoes aren't paleo? and who gives a good fudge?!

              I feel like that board would anger me more than anything.

                Nah you fit in here. Welcome!
                Tomatoes - They think they don't work because they are night sades.

                Ham is "processed" meat, but according to Mark it's ok to have every now and then just watch for the extra stuff. I perfer Boars Head when in a bind.

                Cashews are not the best type of nuts, but I eat them (with control/limited amounts)

                Dairy - Cheese / Yogurt - They don't like dairy over there. With Primal it is allowed (if your body can handle it.) Some people are lactose intolerant.

                Now the coconut yogurt?? If it is from coconuts, it's not considered dairy. So the guy was just being a jerk on that.

                Again.. welcome to Primal living.

                    Pfft. Diet nazis are everywhere. You have a pretty solid plan going, run with it, primal, paleo, or wtf ever it is.
                    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

                        I'd like to see a daily meal plan from the gentleman who replied on the other forum.

                          Ahhh *kicks back relaxes and puts feet on furniture* feel much more at home here!

                          I know ham isn't great but this is a cooked lump of the stuff rather than total processed crap! And without cashews I think I'd struggle to get enough fats!

                          Thanks guys

                            Tomatoes are a nightshade, which means that they, like potatoes, are related to a rather poisonous group of plants. Some people don't do well eating them, though for most people it doesn't matter much. In paleolithic times, the toxin concentration in tomatoes was supposedly too high for humans to eat, which means that a caveman would not have eaten them. Ergo, tomatoes are not paleo. The others are similarly not paleo- ham is cured, yogurt is dairy, and cashews... I forgot why cashews aren't paleo, but I remember hearing about it once.

                            Not that I really think it matters, because I don't have any desire to give up tomatoes, ham, cashews, or yogurt and wouldn't recommend it unless you want to see if your body reacts poorly to it.

                              Oh that's interesting to know! Thanks!

                              I am happy to be told things I may be doing wrong but I like to be given a reason!
