    Sugar being my problem as well, and from that perspective there are suggestions that too much read meats promote diabesity, while beans help stabilize blood sugar. Addendum of course being that we are not dividing between grass-fed; and we are looking at various eating patterns. One of the studies quoted that blood sugar was lowered on the same macros for a group eating whole rye (even processed into bread/pasta) vs group eating the traditional SAD combo of wheat, w.potatoes and oats.

    In my experience all the Paleo books I have read skimmed past the legumes, never really giving an argument of the strength and conviction that is reserved for the grains.

    I kindda feel that as someone with a sugar problem, I might be better off with beans than white potatoes and white rice.

      A very dangerous statement...

And I'd been so busy all day that I hadn't eaten more than 4 ounces of food prior to that meal.

      We are all different. And we should all do what works for ourselves. Eat and be happy! There are entire cultures that live with rice and/or beans as their staple foods.
      "we should all do what works for ourselves" I'm concerned a new member may run with this in the wrong direction. In regards to entire cultures living off of rice and beans as a staple. The Irish did it off of potatoes. The key is when calorie restricted (fasting by necessity) all humans do very well on most any diet. Give rice eating Asian cultures McDonanlds along with that rice and we have out of control obesity.

        I think that one of the real takeaways from Paleo/primal is to zero in on high quality protein as the centerpiece of every meal. Most of the 'filler' foods that we decry have either no or vastly inferior sources of protein in them.

        And like Joanie says, eating a 1lb meatza is hard work, and very filling.
        Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.
