    Orthodox Christianity and Primal Living

    Any Orthodox Christian Groksters here? Our obvious concern would be about the fasting days, when we abstain from all meat, wine and dairy. What do you do then?

    I'm not Orthodox but fish, veggies, fruit, nuts? Loads of salads, eggs, sea food, smoothies.

    Many people here incorporate regular fasting in to their diets. Could you just fast on your fasting days and eating nothing?
    Using low lectin/nightshade free primal to control autoimmune arthritis. (And lost 50 lbs along the way )

    Yes...we can have fish on some days. All good ideas (except eggs)

    jammies: we can. But we dont always ;-)

    Actually, we fast most Wednesdays and Fridays, then we have four fasting seasons annually, the longest being Great Lent, which lasts almost two months, and is the most strict

    I have no idea why this would be a problem. Can you explain why there is a conflict? Do your beliefs tell you that you have to eat grains, industrial oils, or sugar? Certainly, Primal doesn't require you to eat red meat every day.
    If you are new to the PB - please ignore ALL of this stuff, until you've read the book, or at least http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/ and this (personal fave): http://www.archevore.com/get-started/

    There is no conflict. Typically, I would eat eggs, meat and dairy, all things we cannot have on fasting days. Just wondering what other options are

    I'm not Orthodox, but I gather that Great Lent removes oil as well as meat and dairy. So getting decent amounts of fat might be a problem. I'm not sure whether fish is permitted.

    You may find your answer in this http://www.marksdailyapple.com/forum/thread34001.html

    I didn't look any further than the first post (since it's not pertinent to myself), unsure if it'll be of any use.
