I can live exclusivly on the supermarket olive bar. Garlic stuffed. I'm serious. It is my favorite foot on earth. Please tell me I can lose wait while eating these on a paleo diet.

i wish i could remember. my grocery store has labels above the olives that list what's in them. it's been a long time since i even went over the olive bar because i just stick to packaged olives now.

I'd also like to know what preservatives you are referring to. The supermarket near my work has an olive bar and I assume it's just olives + olive oil. Am I wrong?

Yes, but a potassium-rich paleo diet makes it a nonissue. Potassium rich foods include dark leafy greens, fish, mushrooms and potatoes.

Yes, of course you can.

You could also lose weight eating 1 BigMac a day and nothing else. Would this be healthy? Hell no! But you'd lose weight.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong but aren't olives very high in sodium?

Olives are pretty good. They're a relatively unprocessed food, they're high in monounsaturated fats, and they don't have any obvious drawbacks. As long as you keep your total calorie intake at an appropriate level, and eat a variety of other nutritious foods, I'd say go for it. Eat olives.

i'd avoid the olives at the olive bar since they are so filled with preservatives. i eat olives sometimes just because they give a good flavor to any meal. i love olives and cheese together.

Olives may be high in sodium, may be high in monounsaturated fats.

Does it matter, they are tasty, paleo, and pair well with most meals. What they lack in nutrients, they make up for in deliciousness.
