    It's a simplistic way to look at it but I figure any food that is unattractive on the outside (avocados) or difficult to get into (nuts, pineapples etc) should probably be eaten in a far lesser quantity than things like berries, citrus etc. I mean, who figured out that coconuts were edible? I don't look at one and think 'food'. I've been eating a lot of pineapple lately and mouth feels a little irritated from it.

    Oh, and thank you for answering my questions, Zach!

    Avocados are not as bad as nuts. They contain mostly monounsaturated fatty acids (oleic acid) and a small amount of omega-6.

    Give me avocados or give me death.
    The above should be viewed as complete and utter nonsense.

    Avocados just contain so much unsaturated fat, they can be hepatoxic, and really hard on the liver. Probably not a bad thing for healthy people, but, I never liked the way those things taste. Plus, like Zanna, I find they look really unappealing. When ripe, they look like an old man's ballsack, with a herpes outbreak, so yeah, yuck.

    To eat more would mean eating until it's uncomfortable, at least for a short period of time. Is this a bad thing? Is force-feeding really important to become healthier (in my case?) I find that I under eat most days because of stupid bloating like everyone else in here. The stomach is a muscle so perhaps the bloating is because the stomach isn't big enough esp. with high water content fruits. I'm not eating any 'gassy' foods that could ferment (unless sweet potatoes do).

    I think pretty much any food can cause bloating if the stomach acids are not being produced in significant quantity, fruit and starch especially. I do think in your case that a slight forcefeeding would be beneficial. You should stick to the four S's of salt, starch, sugar and saturated fat. Over eatin things like sweet potatoes, heavily salted with maple syurp and butter would be a perfect way to increase thyroid output.

    Ok great! I get the notion that generally, eating (grazing) throughout the day isn't a very good was of eating (hardcore Paleo paradigm) and that we should focus on 3 square meals with perhaps one snack. I use to stick to that a lot which to me, felt like a dieting program. These days I just eat whenever I like which truly is "Paleo" when you think about it. Would you say it's better to almost constantly be eating, like with an hour between eating something, rather than leaving 4-5 hours gaps, in order to overcome my issues? Can this constant fire be only a good thing? I don't really believe that eating at the exact same time each day is that beneficial either. (but sleep is!)

    Favourite cooked meal right now is chicken, sweet potato and goat cheese bake. With lots of salt. I'll start upping the quantity to 2 large sweet potatoes and 3-4oz cheese.

    Oh and my garden is really starting to flourish right now! LOTS of green leaves so this will give me a tonne more nutrients, when juiced with oranges.

    Sounds good man!

    For you, yes not going more then 3-4 hours between big meal is a good idea. You dont need to be constantly grazing but definitely first thing in the morning then every few hours. I do think that eating at the same times does create a calming effect on the body because it becomes accustomto knowing calories are always available. Very anti stress. This is one of the things Billy Craige mentions as being able to over eat and still lose fat.

    Haha, I've been unintentionally doing this almost daily for a while now.
