    Thanks everyone, glad to know I haven't been booted off the island!

    I don't doubt that part of it psychological...I work with skulls, and they will often have bits of flesh still attached, which looks exactly like cooked, dried-out chicken. Many will still have the brain rolling around inside, although it's dried out and the size of a baseball. You don't want me to tell you what a burnt body looks like!

    The fact that I have almost entirely stopped eating grains is HUGE for me. My awesome husband, and this forum, has changed the way I eat for the better. I won't be chowing down on a steak any time soon, but I've make good changes nonetheless.

    PS: I suppose I could try bone broth, but my husband would have to make it for me!

    I think it's really cool that you gave "pure" primal a try and now have been able to find your own nutritional path! I am also happy that so many here are still supportive of you!

    Your user name and reference to skulls makes me ask... What do you do? Forensic artist sounds fascinating!

    This sounds like a smart suggestion to me.

    I also think you might wake up craving a massive T-bone steak one day. Until that happens, eat the most healthful foods you can tolerate, which it sounds like you are. Lots of people who eat meat on here eat less healthful diets than what you described.

    Lots of great support and advise on this thread! Thanks for keeping it positive and not bashing Forensic just because she doesn't care for meat. I may even give lacto-ovo-pescatarian a go for a couple weeks, after my Whole30.

    Love my Primal Tribe!!!

    I personally cannot stand chicken breast or turkey. Don't care how primal they may be. So find what works. I think it rocks that you are working on being and staying healthier. That's all that matters.

    Yeah, it's not like she's eating Atkins bars, "Paleo" muffins, and Quinoa with lean chicken breast. She's eating the most nutritious foods she finds palatable. Not much to fault her for. And believe me, we try

    Good on you for trying,I can totally understand why people are vegetarians. Put it this way if I had to kill the animal personally I would definitely be vegetarian. though I understand it is more you don't like the taste.
    There are quite a few paleo vegetarian sites with some lovely recipes worth looking at via google.
    Macadamia nuts, eggs etc are good to eat
    Best of luck

    Yes, THANK YOU to everybody who offered me advice in my beginning Paleo quest, and to everyone that has responded with such positive comments. I really do appreciate the time it took to read and respond

    You know that show “Bones”? Well, it’s sort of what I do, but without the high heels and guns!

    Mostly, I sculpt faces onto unidentified skulls. I also do lots of fugitive age progressions, post-mortem retouches from morgue photos, and a few composite drawings of suspects here and there. I totally and completely am in love with my job! I love it so much I made a website!

    Not trying to swing you from your path, I think it's great you have tried Paleo and found a good diet balance for yourself.
    But I have to ask,
    There isn't some bizzare connection that you are making between the meat and bones on your plate and the bones on your desk at work?

    Our tastes do gradually change with diet, before I started this I had a powerful sweet tooth, no prob's downing a good size cake with icecream or a full block of chocolate etc. so I thought this would be one of the hurdles, suprisingly my tastes changed and I don't have the urge, I can watch while others down the cake with no residual feelings of deprivation.

    Anyway, don't know if you will ever get a taste for juicy bacon, but either way good luck with your journey.

    Awesome job, FA, must be rewarding.

    I've always had a conflict with enjoying juicy steaks and my deep love of cows and their big beautiful faces.
    I told my mom when I was about 10 that I was very angry at her for making me like anything made with beef.
    She said, sorry, I was just trying to keep you healthy so you'd live.
