  • Meatless Mondays

    The latest buzz word among the CW folks trying to get everyone to eat healthier (as in low fat) is Meatless Mondays. The latest CW doc to mention it is Dr. Isadore Rosenfeld, the Sunday House Call doctor advice featured on Fox News on Sunday mornings.

    Now my question (please don't think I am a vegetarian troll) is there must of been days, or several days, in which Grok didn't have such good luck hunting. So, not to be jumping on the latest CW bandwagon, but not IF. Were there days that Grok only ate berries, nuts or some vegetables? Should modern day Primals trying to emulate our HG ancestors do the same thing? I've had meat almost everyday and every meal (except eggs for breakfast) for the past year.

    *shrug* if you want to...

    Do eggs count?

    If my family wanted to do meatless mondays, I'd probably just IF. I mean... I love veggies so I could do a day of veg, but I don't see the point.

    Grok probably had days where only berries, roots, greens and grubs were available. He probably wasn't thrilled about it though.

    Wouldn't his energy levels be pretty low, because he would have been totally fat adapted?

      i think that getting bogged down in the minutiae of food will drive you crazy
      beautiful
      yeah you are

      Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.

        There seems to be some health benefits in limiting protein to encourage autophagy - your body eating the damaged protein cells in your body.
        Chris Masterjohn went vegan for 2 weeks and among other benefits it got rid of the warts on his hands. He eats meat and warts have not returned. So limiting protein occasionally may be healthful.

            Ever since I was a kid... it wasn't a meal unless there was meat involved.

              I don't now, nor have I before, nor will I probably ever understand how people can subsist solely on plants; that being said, this meatless monday thing...is fish okay to eat on the "meatless" day?
              My whole life, I've felt like an animal......but I've ignored my instincts. I ignored what I really am. That will never happen again.

                it's all part of their evil plan to turn everyone vegetarian. I've heard Paul McCartney bleating on about it in the media.

                  Sure, go ahead and limit your meat. It might not be good for your brain though.

                    Sounds like a good day to eat more meat, to make up for people eating less.

                      We should make up for the short fall.

                        I'm sure there were days like that. But I'm not approaching this from a food re-enactment standpoint. Grok never had a memory foam mattress, air conditioning or antibiotics but I'm not giving those things up.

                          I'd put Meatless Mondays in the "not harmful, but not helpful" category for most primal/paleo eaters.

                          They may be beneficial to SAD eaters because they encourage the consumption of real food instead of processed crap. Hardly foolproof, though. Twinkies are meatless.

                            I do a meatless day from time to time. It will also be a zero calorie fast day though. I can't eat a meal without meat.
