Let's pretend to play devil's advocate here and say that one of these food sources went extinct. If you had to choose, which one is more nutritious?
Some studies are now saying that the Neu5Gc in red meat may cause cancer, whats your take on this? If this is so then how come traditional societies didnt seem to get cancer from eating meat?
I noticed that people that eat a diet high in red meat look much older than what their age is. They gray and wrinkle faster and have big pot bellies. I notice that populations that eat a more plant based diet of nuts, seeds, fruits, vegetables and... (more)
I think that, in general, high-meat eaters and SAD eaters get lumped together. Many of the plant eating populations who get written up frequently (ie. kitivans and obkinawans) tend to eat whole-food, VEGETABLE (not grain) based diets. Populations... (more)
Hi I wonder if you know about studies comparing the effects of Paleo diet with other healthy, non Paleo diets. For instance traditional Maasai diet consisted (exclusively in the case of young males) of meat and dairy products, and those young... (more)
Why aren't sweet potatoes paleo? Go read Catching Fire: How cooking made us human. Tubers are better for us than most vegetables... Masai are raw milk. Milk is the only non "paleo" item here. Yet I'd wager to say most of us use real butter here.... (more)
Has anyone bought from Texas Grass Fed Beef link text and if so what are your thoughts? I normally order from US Wellness but they are always out of soup bones, and I live in a small town where none is available. (more)
I'm 15 and have adopted the primal lifestyle! I get organic meat and organic free-range eggs, but I'm pretty sure they're fed 'organic cereals' and 'organic wheat'. Can I get pastured meat/eggs in supermarkets or do I need to nag my parents to buy... (more)
So let's assume I'm eating only out of nutritional reasons. With this assumption, I do not care one bit to how tasty it is, and would only like to eat the ultimate diet. What is the??minimal set of meat and organs I have to learn to cook if I want... (more)
I think the main thing is to buy the best quality meat, organic and grass-fed where possible. Liver (any) is super nutritious and can be prepared very easily and quickly by sauteeing with onions and garlic. Saute the onions and garkic first for 5... (more)
What company sells no antibiotics, no hormones, no nitrates, grass-fed lunch meats? I looked at AppleGate but it says that they are fed grain diets mostly! Ugh. Anyone have an idae of where to get lunch meat that is 100% paleo? Also,... (more)
I've been getting like sniffles, blocked noses and sore throats that only last for a few days then symptoms go away. I tend to eat seafood about 3-5 times a week and red meat on every other day. I tend to avoid overcooking by baking these in the... (more)
Hi, I am on my second week of strict aip paleo to combat my stage 3 Hidradenitis Suppurativa. My first week consisted mainly of beef because I know what to look for in beef, i.e. 100% grass fed to avoid consuming the grains the cow... (more)
What does it matter if the animal eats grain? Those grains are completely broken down into the constituent sugar, fat and protein molecules that they are composed of in the digestive system of the animal that ate it and turned into meat (muscle... (more)
Hey guys, I was wondering what people thought about not eating prime cuts of meat everyday and instead having lots of eggs with a few strips of bacon. I have fallen in love with eggs since starting paleo and I have... (more)
Its my understanding that burnt meat is carcinogenic and that conventionally raised meat is pumped with hormones antibiotics etc. but if you are eating pastured meats and wild game that isnt overcooked is it any different for these meats?
Wasn't most of the paleolithic man's meat and vegetables uncooked?
Hi! I'm on all all-meat-diet atm to see if this works better for my IBS. So far, so good. I'm the third day in and had ground beef today - instant diarrhea! This always happens with ground beef, steaks and all other kinds of meat are okay. I... (more)
Hey guys, Is it ok to eat the fat/rind that comes on pork/lamb chops? I find it the tastiest bit of the meat but am keen to learn if it is really ok to do so although i do keep it to a bare minimum!
Back when I was a vegetarian and a vegan, I was never interested in wearing those shirts that said things like "Meat is murder" or "I love tofu" or using bumper stickers, key chains, bracelets, or any of that type of junk that advertised my... (more)
So I tend to bake lots of meat at once and then freeze it for later. However, before freezing, I put the baked meat in the fridge for a while. After that, I always find the liquid has jelled into what seems like gelatin. Would eating that be... (more)
I tend to eat meat on Paleo by baking large amounts in the oven at once, then freezing so I can eat the results whenever I want. Before freezing, the cooked meat cools in my fridge. Thus, before finally going to the freezer, I always find lots... (more)
Could I eat eggs, meat/chicken/salmon, avocado, butter, broccoli, kale and spinach and cover all the nutritional bases? Anything to add/remove/change? Berries and nuts, for example?
No. I would in fact make sure the butter is grass fed, to improve your low K2 intake. I would add some seaweed to counteract the goitrogenic effects of kale and broccoli, and I would eat at least a pound a day of your green veggies.
So red meat - espcecially beef - is my cryptonite, it doesn't give me pain or cramps and doesn't have anything negative about it.But the most forms of jerky or salamis etc. are full of crap here (germany) and I'm a student, so I can't sit and boil... (more)
A female client of mine has been a pescatarian for 18 years. She now has low iron if she doesn't get regular injections. She would like to be able to get her iron from meat but whenever she has any chicken, beef, turkey, she gets diarrhoea 30 min... (more)
I recently purchased a cast iron set and have love cooking with it. However, whenever I look up recipes/instructions on how to cook up a steak or something, it always says to cook on high heat.I like to cook on medium to low heat to prevent... (more)
I'm guessing eating lots of meat, but what would be the easiest way to cook it?I know that the easiest way to cook vegetables is steaming, but what about meat?
High protein is a waste. Sufficient protein is better. If you want to stay low carb then do high fat. Easy to do... Couple tbsp of olive oil plus lots of veggies with each meal.
