  • Yes, you MUST eat fat!



    I've seen about six posts here in the last day asking "what happened? I feel like crap and I don't know what I'm doing wrong!" Then we get a sample menu and the fat is always missing. It's getting so predictable that I'm thinking I might start taking side bets on the response when a sample menu is requested.


    People, fat (saturated as well as monounsaturated) is absolutely essential to doing the Primal diet correctly. You must eat fat. You must eat lots of fat. If you're hungry, fat should be your first and best go-to food. When I get the shakes, if I'm in a restaurant and there's nothing handy while I wait for my food, I will request butter and eat it by itself to up my fats.


    EAT THE FAT.

    Primal eating in a nutshell: If you are hungry, eat Primal food until you are satisfied (not stuffed). Then stop. Wait until you're hungry again. Repeat.

      It is such a strange concept for newbies like me... But apparently it works as I have noticed throughout this week!

        What if you can't look at fat anymore and you feel like you're gonna be sick and yet you're hungry?...

        And how the hell do you get enough fat anyways?! What do you have to eat/ do?

                  Yes fat is our fuel. You need tons and tons of it to replace carbohydrates. Mainly animal fat. Coconut and olive oil have a place in my diet but without animal flesh we are lost. Make sure to avoid lean meats like the plague. No protein without lots of saturated fat (fish is the exception. Make sure to have coconut or butter with your fish). You wouldn`t want your cholesterol levels to get too low!


                  mwahaha.

                    @NoSalad- You can order it online from a few different online healthfood vendors. Search in google for "native Forrest Coconut Milk" and they should pop up

                      @NoSalad -- It might help for you to use some of your carbs on foods that are also high in fat, like avocado and nuts. You can also add extra dressing to salads, drop a dollop of oil into one-dish meals like chilis, soups, and curries, etc. And I, too, like to drink chilled coconut milk.

                        Shredded coconut is still coconut. It has the nutritional properties of coconut milk and oil except a little less lauric acid. Organic shredded coconut is very cheap and there are hundreds of things to do with it.

                            I have been having hard time wrapping my head around the fact that if there is enough fat available as a fuel from food then why the heck your body will burn your bodyfat?

                            Please please please someone help me with this concept !
