Hi, I just started on the paleo diet. And I was just wondering is it okey to only eat fish and eggs as protein? I don't like red meat so much and I feel very sleepy and tired after eating that.

My day looks like this:

Breakfast: 2 eggs with cocounut mil and a banana

Lunch: tunasallad with tomatoes and cucumber

Dinner: salmon with avocado, tomatoes, cucumber and carrot

Snacks: olivs, almonds or one fruit

I'm a women 22 years old 170 cm and I wheigh 51kg

So is eating like this okay? I'm woried is not going to be good for me but I hope you can help me out because I don't have so much knowledge about food and nutrition. I like eating this way but I want to be healthy to.

He poisoned himself with mercury from sardines. I'm aware it's unlikely. Just pointing out that it is completely possible.

Also, pigs aren't ruminants.

Pig is a combination of human and animal genetics? LOL

Poisoned himself how? Sardines aren't known for their mercury buildup and are known for their high selenium (protective against mercury poisoning).

sacrificial animal used by most Middle Eastern people was the wild boar, so the Sirians chose it as the basis for this new animal hybrid. Human genetics were mixed with those of the wild boar to create the domesticated pig. This animal was served daily to the Bluebloods as a method of temporarily maintaining their human form until they could use an actual human in a sacrificial ceremony. Because the domesticated pig is a...... See above for the continuation of this pig/human combo... Sounds like an Epic Sci-fi flick!

Oh and your hybrid animal meat eating comes off as "silliness" to me. Hybrid animals did not exist 10,000 years ago, wild fish did exist. SO tell me which is more paleo.

This is what I could find for you Matt. Enjoy. And if you eat bacon, enjoy that too. "Because the domesticated pig is a combination of human and animal genetics, eating it is a form of cannibalism. This explains why the Hebrews considered it unclean to eat. This is also why the pig is considered to be the most intelligent animal on Earth, why pig skin can be grafted directly onto humans in burn cases, and why pig heart valves can be used in humans with little difficulty. Cancer drugs and other chemicals are often tested on pigs before humans."

What's this silliness about hybrid ruminants? They're a developed species, maybe early in their development hybridization was occuring, but I don't see what they has to do with their nutrition. Selective breeding and hybridization in general produce more nutrition.

I have been pescetarian-paleo for half a year now, eating only fish (with a few exceptions, like liver) as my protein source. Not even eggs. I think it's fine and it totally works, though if you have an urge to mix it up a bit, go for it. Variety is healthful.

If you go for fish, you should also add shellfish. Fish alone is NOT enough to get all the nutrients. Especially oysters and mussels are superfoods.

However, even with shellfish in the mix, you won't get the nutrients found in the animal offal, like PQQ and coQ10. So I'd suggest you go for fish/shellfish, if that's what you want, but eat offal once a week too (liver, heart, and less so kidneys -- rotate them).

An acquaintance poisoned himself with 3-4 cans of sardines a week. So, just keep in mind, everyone is different. Unfortunately our oceans are global garbage dumps. If you're going to eat this diet you should familiarize yourself with toxicity symptoms... that way if anything goes wrong you won't waste so much time troubleshooting.

Also, you might be able to preemptively test for heavy metal buildup after a few months if your physician is cooperative. I would say that your diet qualifies as 'high risk behavior' for purposes of this sort of testing.

Somebody above mentioned eating wild caught only, I'll take this opportunity to emphasize. As bad as our oceans have become they are no competition for the toxic concentrated feed of farmed fish. There's no maybe about getting sick if you eat farmed fish twice every day.

Seriously though.....You'll be fine.

I eat a lot of fish. Probably 2 servings on average each day and love it. (I do eat other meat too though). My suggestion would be to try and mix it up a bit thought to keep your diet varied. Do you like sardines? These things are little nutrients bombs and far more sustainable for the environment as they are wild caught and not farmed. Smoked oysters are also on my menu about once a week for their high zinc. Tuna has higher levels of mercury so try and stick to the smaller fish that lower on the food chain. This is a good guide to go by.

The only other thing to keep in mind is the levels of BPA in the canned fish. Not sure if there's a difference if its tinned or canned too. Maybe someone can shed some light on this?

Yes, I currently only eat fish as well. More specifically wild fish. The ruminants that most here eat daily are all hybrids from thousands of years ago when humans first domesticated animals. Wild fish are un-hybridized and pure. I see nothing wrong with only eating fish for "meat." My current protein sources are grass-fed proserum whey, eggs, fish, and occasionally raw cheese or raw milk.

FAT = Obesity

Eat less fat and you won't be FAT! (common sense)

Instead eat lots of carbs those will not influence your weight.
