i have been following the primal blueprint for the last few years and am pleased with my health/life/etc etc. i really appreciate mark's simplistic and realistic approach and the positive manner in which he approaches this life style.
i do follow mark's food pyramid although without measuring and stressing over it. i do on rare occasions (once a week or so) cheat with some chocolate or raw sugar in the morning coffee etc.
i have been reading a bit more on other sites such as panu and hyperlidids etc and some other bloggers really come down hard on eating fruits and veggies. I typically eat a fair amount of fruit, apple, berries, banana etc in the morning. i eat a little lunch usually a chicken breast or shrimp or left over beef etc with some carrots,celery, broc. and then for supper usually have a large salad including leafy greens and onions and carrot and broc sprouts and cuke etc etc along with a piece of meat or seafood. all grains and starches, as i understand them, have been eliminated.
my hope is to get some blunt and simple opinions as to whether you feel the fruits and veggies should be cut back and or eliminated? i'm not a chem/bio/overly scientific type person so simplicity suits me the best. even when i read the two above blogs i quickly loose interest in the sea of scientific terms and equations etc.
if i cut out fruits and veggies i am left with meat and eggs and meat and some cheese and meat and ......... well you get the idea.
i really would just like to do what is best and get a very elementary and pedestrian answer as to why to keep or eliminate fruits and veggies would be greatly appreciated. i really don't understand all the functions of kidney and liver and the lipids and all the "oses" associated with the fruits and their kind.
thanks in advance to anyone who might answer my question. yak rider
