    Ireland and Scotland has some of the best grass fed meat (angus beef, lamb), grass fed butter and loads of beaufitul seafood, I don't see why getting enought quality calories would be a problem. Unfortunately I don't go there often enough.

    Cost, if eating out.

    Choice of restaurants, if it's an action-packed itinery on an organised tour.

    I was thinking they would probably have cleaner food than the US, so perhaps I'll get me some of that grass fed goodness. I'm just 130lbs, but I'm a powerlifter and need 2500 calories minimum just to maintain(including lots of carbs). Maybe it won't be as hard as I'm thinking. I'll probably be fine taking some dry protein food with me and some liver pills.

    You mean it isn't natural to look like a cross between a Japanese doll and some sort of exotic fish?
    Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who has said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own experience.

    In the mind of the beginner, there are many possibilities; in the mind of the expert, there are few.

    I just try to do as good as I can, I suppose - this goes not only for trips abroad, but also to all kinds of "not everyday" situations like holidays for example (Christmas, Easter, birthdays). I try to stick to primal as much as I can. But when I do yield to temptation, I make sure what I eat is stuff that's really worth the cheat - stuff I really like and that's really good, not plain bread for example, but French raisin bread for Easter - it's sort of a delicacy.

    Now I'll be leaving for France next Friday and this is going to be my first trip abroad since going primal. I am a little nervous how I will manage to stick to my eating habits with all the croissants and other temptations around. But I'll do my best under the circumstances and try not to look back and regret it

    Agreed the breads are tempting but on the plus side the French have one of the most fabulously primal diets. Lots of butter, cream and natural meats, they are very fussy about where their meat and veggies come from, and the markets are so fabulous, straight from the farm to the table, you really could do a lot worse.

    If eating out Aberdeen Angus which can only be grass fed btw because of it's nature, is available everywhere and because it's the home of the Angus, not too expensive, alternatively readily available in the local markets if you're self catering.

    Choice of restaurants - I've never known a tour use little chef or macdonalds, so again it would be safe to say that AA is on the menu, as long as you avoid the deep fried mars bars, you'll be ok. One of my favourite Scottish delicacies is the Haggis, unfortunately it's not so primal! Full of grains, but maybe now and again? Hmmm black pudding too....
