    but can't it be harmful to eat too many raw veggies? I thought I understood that cooking them made them easier to digest because we can't digest too much roughage anymore as a species

    I guess for most people it wouldn't be harmful to eat that much raw roughage, though it might bother some. My jaw gets tired just thinking about it.

    Yeah I've done that much before. About 70/30 by volume vegi/meat. But by calories it is all coming from the meat / cooking fats.

    No thanks. I let my meat eat my greens for me. Too many FODMAPS and goiterogens for my digestive tract.

    Yes that is pretty much how I eat now as well! And how I ate previously too! (Failed vegetarian/vegan).

    Typical day is
    Green Smoothie for breakfast with a fat and protein
    Big salad for lunch with lots of colourful veggies and avocado
    Meat for dinner with cooked veggies in coconut oil or butter

    Feel amazing.

    Other than avoid bad stuff like grains I thought the main thing about paleo was getting enough high quality animal protein (.5-1.5 lb/day depending on activity and other factors). I also got to paleo via a short time in vegan land and still maintain a high veggie intake. I'm sure I eat more veggies than most vegetarians/vegans. One of the best things I discovered was smoothies with lots of greens. I feel like they really help keep the system clean. The other thing is kimchi to keep the probiotics active. My GI track is pretty bulletproof now.

    Actually, raw foods make you feel amazing! I personally love paleo and can't live off *only* raw fruits and veggies but did or a yr or so about 16 yrs ago. Raw foods are so healthy for you. There are many places with information. Like any sites, you have to sort through what to take/leave..but 2 starting places might be: Raw food life

    and Green Smoothie Girl.com
