    This was my reaction! :P

    I also agree with oceangirl. It was a crazy day, you got what food you could, and it was primal!

    But yeah, when you have ability to plan out your meals more, I'm sure you'll get more variety in there.

    Still too much negativity up in here. Bacon is ON the menu people! Don't let these ideas interrupt your Kung Fu. You just keep choppin'!

    My boyfriend had too much bacon yesterday. As I was getting ready to go hiking, he was frying up a pan of bacon and 3 eggs (usually he eats only one egg). I suggested he serve this on rice, but he thought it would be too much food. Then later apparently he cooked more bacon, and not long after that had digestive issues. That would be a good reason to limit bacon.

    I wouldn't worry about it, though I personally don't eat bacon more than once a week. I try to make beef and lamb my main meat intake, with chicken and pork only once a week or so. While I love bacon and eggs, I tend to feel and perform better on beef.

    Could be the eggs ?

    It was the fat. Partly the bacon, and partly the fat that was absorbed into the eggs. He should have eaten the rice with the meal.

    If bacon doesn't make you feel icky from the salt and/or fat (it sure doesn't make me feel icky), you're asking the wrong question. It's not about how much you eat at a sitting, but how much you eat throughout a week or month. I haven't been eating much bacon lately, but I'm going to put down a pound of it tonight post workout because it was the only meat in the freezer and I don't have time to go grocery shopping. And I won't feel bad about it for a single second.

    It was totally way better than a loaf of bread or a pint of Hagan Daas!

    In the order of eating animals commonly available as food in the US, I generally think: ruminants/fatty fish, then other wild seafood (or sustainably farmed like crawfish and oysters), then chicken, then pig. But all of them are better than pasta, bread, ice cream or whatever "meals under 30 minutes" CW would recommend.

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

    When I first went primal about 14 months ago, I would routinely eat 12-16 ounces of bacon as a meal about 3 X per week. It was mostly about convenience. My BF calls primal the "high-bacon diet" for this reason. But I have since learned how to cook well, so now I eat bacon about once every two weeks or so, and it's still 12-16 ounces in a sitting.
    As God is my witness, I'll never be hungry again.
