    Question regards carbs

    Primal Fuel
    Hi All

    Im new here and new to the Paleo.

    I have read Robbs book, The primal blueprint and Dr Cordains book.
    But i have one simple question.
    You could eat all that you want from lean meat, vegetables, limit fruit and nuts and so on. But when it comes to weight loss i have seen recommendatons for only 100g off carbs pr day. Thats not much, thats just a handful or something og am i missing something here??

    Thanks

    Nope your not missing anything. Veggies, meat (ommit the "lean"), some fruits and nuts. 100g is actually quite a bit in that context.

    100g is a lot when you aren't eating processed foods or grains. You can even include a couple pieces of fruit, TONS of veggies, and a sweet potato in that range.

    Which one? Whole watermelon? Most portion sized fruits are like 20-30g (oranges and apples) and more than a few are in the sub 20g range...nectarines, berries and so on.

    A large (8 1/2"-9" +) banana is 30-40 grams of carbs. You can eat a shit ton of natural carb sources and still fall well below the standard SAD carb intake, all while getting your carbs from healthy sources instead of shit processed foods.
    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.

    No problemo...I eat a ton of veggies anyhow. There is nothing inherent to fruit that you NEED to eat a ton of it. I use it as a snack. It rarely (never) plays a major role in my actual meals. But, thats just how I do things.

    My primarry carb is veggie. Allmost never fruit. It was easier to explain my point with a piece off fruit :-)

    Thanks for your help.

    Fruit never makes up the bulk of my diet, but many types of fruit contain a lot of vitamins and minerals and other beneficial things. The fact that most can be eaten raw also makes them a good choice for someone wanting a quick bite or a snack.
