  • PRIMAL snacks HELP NEEDED!!!

    Hi peoples,

    Just asking for a few ideas for snacks as i normally go for nuts and a fruit but i am aware of omeg6's and do not want to OD! Read a thread about omeg6's increasing leptin and insulin sensitivity so wanna be careful.

    I generally dont snack, however on days where I am having a big muay thai sess i wanna get something in 2 hours before.

    Otherwise, with primal meals i find i can go straight from lunch at 12 to dinner at 6 or 7 without needing a snack (providing meal has lots of fats )

    Also my diet is mainly high FAT (60+%) low carbs (-20%) and good organic grass fed meats for protein.

    Thanks guys, always appreciate the ideas and PB love

        I don't normally snack, eat a fattier meal beforehand perhaps. Saying that, before a training session I might have half a banana if there is a lot of running involved.

                    Mostly I just eat leftovers for "snacks" but I will also eat some buffalo jerky, a hard boiled egg, or a handful of nuts if leftovers aren't available.

                      what exactly do you mean by crud? pork rinds are fried in their own fat, so ingredient list should be "pork skin, salt"
                      Everything in moderation, including moderation.

                        Ditto. I don't eat much snacks but when I do it is often a small amount of nuts, hard boiled eggs, celery with nut butter...

                        A primal smoothie is a great choice. Little fruit, your favorite greens, little whey, healthy fats such as coconut milk or avocado or cacao nibs.

                          I'm digging pork rinds lately. Funny, as a kid I thought they were just bacon flavoured "chips", along the same line as a cheezie or something.

                          I had my 9 year old daughter kind of digging the taste, then she googled pork rinds and watched a video on how they make them. Time to cut that kid's internet access OFF. ha ha

                            I eat dry roasted nori--you can find little snack packs at Asian grocery stores--they really hit the spot if you have salty/crunchy cravings. I used to have cravings a lot but now after a month of no grains the urge to snack has completely disappeared. Nori is a great source of iodine and has zero carbs.

                              If you are not sure you should snack and want ammunition, read the book "Mastering Leptin". Lots of biochemical pathways and other data to prove that snacking is a bad idea.

                              If you need more food before working out, he'd probably recommend making the previous meal larger.
