The carbs that are ok are the carbs you get along with. Paleo carbs are vegetables that don't need cooking, fruit and honey. Potatoes and grains are not paleo but if you like them and you get on with them then the choice is yours to eat them or not. (more)

Liver, shellfish and some fish all taste quite sweet to me. Since I dropped all starch (still lots of veg) 90% dark chocolate even tastes sweet. Even black coffee (dark roast) has some sugar/caramel notes I never noticed.
