    I am just starting the primal way and finding it very overwhelming. I need a list of what I can't eat. I feel as though I have been following this way for a while and I see no difference. So I feel like I must be doing something wrong. Can anyone help me find a list or guide me in the right direction. Like I can't eat any beans? And does all meats need to be organic and does everything have to be organic? What does the term processed food include?

    There is a Primal Blueprint shopping list in the Primal 101 section of the blog. Good Luck!

      I know what I can eat, but I want to know what I can't eat. I know its a negitive approach but I do better that way.

        For now, just stay away from grains (bread, pasta, cereal, oatmeal) and sugar. You can cut the beans now or wait until you have the no grains, sugar thing down. I have never eaten organic or grass fed. Can't afford it.

          Here's a list made by another member.

          Primal Eating In a Nutshell....

          EAT THIS *-*YOU CAN AND SHOULD EAT IT
          (In fact, it should be the backbone of your diet. )
          - Meat (preferably grass-fed)
          - Poultry (preferably free-range)
          - Fish (preferably wild-caught)
          - Eggs (preferably cage-free)
          - Non-starchy and/or green vegetables (preferably organic)
          - Avocado
          - Butter (preferably from grass-fed cows)
          - Lard
          - Ghee
          - Coconut oil
          - Coconut milk
          - Olive oil (but not for cooking)
          - A berry (up to a handful)

          NOT THAT -*YOU SHOULD NOT EAT IT.
          (Throw it away, unless it's a cleaning or stationery product, in which case use it for its appropriate purpose).
          - A legume (bean, pea, peanut)
          - A grain (wheat, corn, rice) or made of a grain (cereal, oatmeal, bread, cake, tortilla, pasta)
          - A processed food product
          - A "low-fat" manufactured food product
          - A "low-carb" manufactured food product
          - A "diet" manufactured food product
          - Anything with an ingredient that ends in "ose" (sucrose, glucose, fructose) or that contains sugar, agave nectar, honey, or maple syrup
          - Anything from the center aisles of the grocery store...

          EAT IN MODERATION
          - Dairy products (milk, yogurt, cream, sour cream, half & half) – whole milk (not low-fat)
          - Nuts (peanuts are not nuts)
          - A seed
          - A fruit other than a berry
          - A starchy or sugary vegetable (carrot, beet, winter squash)
          - A tuber (potato, sweet potato, yam)
          - A nightshade (tomato, bell pepper)
          - Coffee

          UNLESS:
          - You are trying to lose weight (for dairy, nuts, fruits, starchy vegetables, and tubers)
          - You are lactose intolerant (for dairy)
          - You are significantly inactive/sedentary
          - You are insulin resistant (for dairy, nuts, fruits, starchy vegetables, tubers, and coffee)
          - You want to go 100% evolutionary diet and avoid anything we aren't sure paleo man ate
