  • Primal eating if your NOT over weight.

    Hey guys!

    I've seen a lot of information on this forum directed to guys who are trying to loose weight but not so much for guys who are at their idea weight. A little about me...

    I'm at my perfect body weight, could maybe stand to even gain a pound or two. I'm very active (MMA, Rock Climbing, Swimming) as well.

    Knowing all that, what fruits should I avoid? Should I still limit things like bananas or can I eat a couple of them a day if I feel like? Can I basically eat any fruit and any vegetable sense im not over weight?

    Thanks for the help guys.

    Eat as much fruit as you please.

      Some people avoid some fruits and vegetables because they are bad for autoimmune diseases, regardless of if they are normal weight, overweight etc.

      But if you are free of those, then just avoid veggies like corn, peas and potatoes as they are not paleo.

        You can also up the winter squashes. Cube butternut, combine with shallot and tons of butter and bake. Halve acorn squash, stuff with chopped apple and if you use it, best maple syrup you can find. Bake a dozen small sweet potatoes and use for breakfast. Beets roasted wrapped in foil with olive oil. Slice them on salads. These are my most favorites that I have to not eat but rarely, since I spend most of my day at a desk.

          Yes, you can eat unlimited fruits and veg, in fact you should - just avoid fruit juice and eat whole fruits. I would also suggest that fresh corn, peas, and potatoes in season in moderation are fine - Mark has written about all these foods and determined there are really not that bad.
          As you lower your carbs eating primal, you may find that your sport activity suffers - sweet potatoes and for some of us, white rice, work well to replenish the old muscles in that case.
          If you are new to the PB - please ignore ALL of this stuff, until you've read the book, or at least and this (personal fave):

            Accumulation of too much storage fat can impair movement and flexibility, and can alter the appearance of the body.Pre obese and overweight however are often used interchangeably thus giving overweight.

              Hi there,
              Hope you don't mind me chiming onto this thread.
              I am new to the forum and fairly new to the Primal lifestyle, in other words have been doing it for a couple of months but since the NY I am trying to take it to another level. I am also not overweight just want to stabilize my weight, look after my health.
              So i'm guessing chewing gum is not primal but is it super bad?

                The artificial sweeteners are what are bad in chewing gum and that's for everyone - paleo or not. They "can" cause some diseases. You can buy good chewing gum without the nasty artificial sweeteners in the health food shop though.
