I took a look at the Primal Blueprint shopping list and noticed that a few common foods are missing. For example, I don't see:

  • Honey
  • Milk
  • Mayonnaise

This would lead me to believe that they are not allowed on the PB diet. I know Mark suggests avoiding honey in his book, so I think that one is out. Mayonnaise is in one of his recipes, so I gather that it's allowed? I couldn't find anything about milk in the book.

While lurking in this forum, I've seen people talk about their consumption of all of these foods. Many seem to eat them.

Can someone clarify this for me? I'm doing PB in order to lose weight. I keep my calories 500-1000 less than my daily expenditure, and my net carbs between 50 and 100 grams per day.

Thank you.
