  • Things happen when you 'slip' from primal eating.

    I had beans with my shredded pork today... baked beans... I know legumes are not considered primal, but I was not prepared with enough food today at work and ended up getting some BBQ, beans n' cole slaw.

    I now consider beans poisonous. Why? Because they have caused me major stomach discomfort in the form of gas. I feel wicked bloated and just ugh.

    I am a FF and have 24 hour shifts so If I don't come to work 'food prepared' I can end up going along with all the other guys and eating 'crap'. For instance, I had a taco salad tonight from a mexican place across the street... the shredded chicken in it was too salty. I have been SO thirsty all night long. This sucks. Learned a lesson... less i'll slip in the future.

      I've become extremely stubborn about what I eat. I really dislike non-Primal foods anymore, even my beloved cheesecake. I really don't see many more slips in my future. It's just so not worth it. I'm really loving this meat, eggs & veggies only policy. Fruit, nuts and dairy as occasional treats is fine by me.

              "Disgust" is the PERFECT word for how I see non-Primal food... or even some Primal food that isn't up to standard- like Walmart's produce section. Blech. I wouldn't touch that stuff with a ten foot pole!

              I used to LOVE peeps, and Cadbury eggs. OMG, I would eat one every single day as long as the stores had them. Now I can't picture liking them at all. I'm at my parents' house at the moment. Peeps on the table, unopened. No cadbury eggs to be seen. Chocolate covered raisins. None are the least bit interesting. I could go for a hard boiled egg though. Now that sounds tasty!

                I have this very weird addiction to Yorkie Cookies, not sure if you have them in the US but they are made from a chocolate bar known as Yorkie. They must be chocked full of sugar but for some reason they don't affect me, they are the only things I get cravings for. Compare that to a small amount (10 grams or so) of oatmeal I had 2 weeks ago and was laid out for 3 hours with bad cramps and messed up energy levels.

                  Today I had a nibble of handmade fudge made from local organic double cream because I was curious about this local product. It really wasn't anywhere as good as the thin slices of butter I had been melting in my mouth. The sugary sensation did nothing for me. This was a first! (former sugar addict).

                    Too many carbs and I feel bad but other than that I don't notice anything horrible. Dairy (save for whey isolate and ghee) and gluten as usual give me a little digestive trouble but that's to be expected, I have legit food sensitivities.

                        Oh crap. I slipped for the whole week and I'm in for a month of pain. My once clear skin is plotting a revenge outbreak, I'm sure of it.

                          Diana, I hope to be where you are someday but I just get really bored with just meat, eggs and veggies and have to spice it up a bit more with dairy, fruit and nuts. Hats off to you for getting to that point. What's the trick/secret?

                            It is only those who come to severe harm very quickly that we call lactose-intolerant or celiac. A great many people including myself are damaged by these things but the damage is far more subtle and slower to manifest. Traditional medicine has us thinking in black and white terms. It's either "yes this person has celiac" or "no, this person doesn't have celiac" but the reality is that it is a broad spectrum of severity. A naturopathic practitioner can perform tests.

                            If you think about it in evolutionary terms, for millions of years our species didn't consume gluten or cow lactose. Enter the agricultural revolution 10000 years ago, enter supreme reduction in general physical prowess and enter the diseases of civilization. After a while populations adapt to their food source over many generations and we find people who can digest these things better than other people, usually depending on their ancestor's diets. Apparently my ancestors didn't consume a lot of gluten or lactose but consumed more of it than many people's had. It isn't set in stone depending upon your ancestors though. There is definite variation within single generations. Most Asians and Africans are seriously lactose intolerant while a french person wouldn't be as poorly adapted to it, etc.

                            Anyway that's the gist.

                              I get creative. Today all I wanted were gigantic cherrystone clams and avocado, so that's pretty much all I ate. Four HUGE clams (one of which yielded 10 pearls), and 1 1/2 avocados. I had to share otherwise it would have been 2 whole avocados- lol. Had some lamb and veggies for breakfast and snacked on some pork rinds around dinner time. I just experiment with various meats and veggies that I haven't experienced before.

                              Tomorrow is cabbage rolls. I have a huge turnip to do something with, but I don't know what yet. I guess instead of planning a meal and getting ingredients, I get ingredients and invent the meal.
