    Okinawans eat a LOT of pork, not the original scant amount reported.

      The Okinawan Vegitarian myth seems to be as hard to kill as the Lipid Hypothesis.

      Kool, go and do some real reading on the Okinawan's.
      Health is not relevant to the instant gratification generation, if that is what you are after, then find the glossiest image of the perfect body you want and follow the script, when it fails you then come back, slightly humbled, this will involve some psychological hurdles, and start looking at the details and you will find your way, lower carb, higher carb it don't matter, but when you start listening to your body and not your head you will find the way, let your head do the information gathering, that's what it's good at and then let your body make the choices, it's always right.

        Well she does eat the same things as her dog, so probably.

        I think it's cute, to imagine them eating out of the same bowl.

          Have you ever heard of Paul Check and Metabolic Typing? There is lots of room for a paleo/primal diet using these guidelines. According to metabolic typing you are either one of 3 types: Protein, Mixed or Carb. It sounds like your body thrives on carbohydrates. If you feel good eating with those macro's DO IT! It's easy to do it without grains or legumes (and your diet will be a lot cheaper than most of ours!). Fill up on yams, fruits, veggies, squashes, likely potatoes are ok for you too. Enjoy, don't stress.

            Don't see the problem with that. I don't feed anything to my dogs that I wouldn't/don't eat.
            They just get less fruit and veggies than me.

              Yup... I think different diets work for different bodies. I was a damn fat vegan.... I'm not sold on Primal or Paleo being everyone's answer.

              I did that metabolic typing and it is spot on to what works for me. I can't do the higher fats, need the proteins and carbs.

                No problem with that. Problem is when it's said in a derogatory manner. Saying both you and your dog eat quality food is a lot different than implying many people are eating the lowest form of foods on earth fit only for lesser mammals.

                  There's a lot of mythology out there about "traditional diets". Usually people cherrypick what they think people used to eat. Or still eat. But most often it completely ignores how people actually eat.

                  If you learned about "Indian" food at a yoga retreat where they cook lots of healthy vegetarian food to serve to healthy students of yoga, you might be surprised to hear that real Indians eat lots of fried food, and have issues with heart disease, diabetes, and other diseases of civilization. There's also a common misconception that the traditional Japanese diet is mostly vegetables, seaweed, fish, and tofu. Or that any of these groups eat much brown rice.

                  The funniest I ever saw was a woman on Denise Minger's blog who sincerely believed that "the Asian diet" is an extraordinarily health diet that exists in Asia and is eaten by all Asians.

                    This was my light hearted way of describing veganism. Sheesh. Untwist the knickers a bit before you cut off your circulation.

                    I have even referred to my eating plan as the "Things My Dog Likes Too" diet. He loves coconut, avocados, berries, etc. in addition to the eggs, meat, and dairy.
                    So we do have very similar tastes but he does get a separate bowl. It would be hard for him to reach the table.

They also eat moderate levels of tofu and beans.
                      Except for the tofu and beans it sounds pretty primal to me. Lots of fresh produce, no gluten, no manufactured foods, no seed oils, no sweating over what food to eat - just what is fresh and available locally. Primal and paleo don't prescribe a set macronutrient ratio.

                        Okinawans really like sea snakes.

                              I just made the most delectable pot of neck bone stew. I think I'll call it The Neckhammer.
