protein and fat is the key to this diet. you do not need vegetables to survive or to be healthy. there is a lot of confusion on here about people making this a plant based diet. the true paleo diet was heavily meat based and in some cases it was 100% meat. check out my post here
Funny story: I was shopping with my kids and they were all excited that there were pigs heads in the offal section. "can we get one? yay!". An elderly asian woman next to me (who I noticed was buying pigs trotters) asked me "I thought that only vietnamese people eat pigs heads? How do you eat it?". I said we roasted it (as a brawn), and then asked her how she cooked it. Her reply: "I'm not vietnamese". Burn.
Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

TQP: I find for me that nutrition is much more important than what I do in the gym.

Interesting, how long do you roast if for and at what temp? I am a pork fanatic but have never had the delicacy of the head.
