    Bacon

    I've been noticing people slamming bacon in a variety of different threads dealing with different things. Did I miss something? Is bacon no longer the Primal Champion food?

    Nope. Bacon and butter are unlimited Primal fare.....long as it is well sourced.

    In the UK, for me bacon means Duchy Originals organic from Waitrose or Sainsbury's organic both 3.99 GBP for six rashers. Hand cured and fantastic. Sainsbury's is now selling Oscar Meyer American-style bacon which doesn't seem like a positive to me. I have only found nitrate free bacon on Laverstoke Park Farm's website. I would rather eat bacon without chemicals and organic bacon seems to have a lot less and less salt.

    Bacon is essential mmmm

    Bacon is jokingly used by mark. "there is no such thing as too much bacon" etc. and to make primal easier, because bacon tastes so damn good. It's high fat and low carb and natural so fits perfectly in the primal theory. But it's not a superfood. It's very high in calories which could make it a moderation food for some. Also it has high PUFA content. It's perfectly fine to eat but beef or lamb is better. Personally I eat it 2x or so a week at breakfast.
    Butter is the same story. Not unhealthy, but high in calories. And not super nutritious. Though it has a quite high content of fat soluble vitamins and small amounts of minerals

    Also people go way overboard with this and take everything literally. They think "oh so fat doesn't make me fat? Then I can eat as much as I want as long as I'm VLC!"

    I disagree.....bacon and butter are unlimited as long as you stick to the carb curve.

    I'm not sure if you're joking. I'm not saying you're completely wrong either. If the carb curve comtrols your hunger then you won't eat so much bacon. So yes then you can "eat as much as you want" which wouldn't be an extreme amount.
    well then
