Who here eats meat+veg+spice- that's all?

I'm going to go back to simpler times for a bit, just meat, veg, and spice. No extra fat, no sauces, no dairy, no fruit (don't like it, anyway), no sweet potatoes or trying to fancy up food. Meat and vegetables with herbs or sugar-free spices. Who here eats this way all the time?

Pretty much anything. if I'm feeling especially lazy I just toss one of those microwave steamer bags in of broccoli/cauliflower/etc. Ummm...spinach cooked in some olive oil with minced garlic and red pepper with a splash of lemon juice at the end. Ground lamb or beef cooked with kale and little broth is another quick meal.

Self confidence is attractive- as are petite girls. I am right about what the insulin resistance thing. You probably weighed more drinking beer because it was a surplus of calories. Insulin is complex. You can be insulin resistant and if you eat carbs you'll get fat, or you can be insulin resistant from eating VLC, and if you don't eat excess protein or hardly any glucose, then you won't gain body fat.

It is too the case. Look it up. Eating VLC makes you physiologically insulin resistant. I do my homework. Sorry to disappoint, but maybe you should start thinking me more of a Newland Archer or a Willoughby. I'm much more devious than that good-two-shoes Mr. Darcy.

VLC does make you physiologically insulin resistant. Use it or lose it. Insulin acts PARTlY as a storage hormone, so if you're not obese and diabetic it would make sense for someone who is physiologically insulin resistant from eating VLC to weigh very little.

Organic mustard made with apple cider vinegar? Cause those other mustards are dyed that super yellow colour and have malt/white vinegar in them which is wheat.

Alvaro, I started with this eating style in 2010. I love to cook for my non-paleo husband, so I started to add stuff. I didn't get bored, I was trying to please. I ended up fatter for it, with tummy problems. If you're bored with it, good on you.

If I could find meat fat enough to do so, that's basically how I'd eat. In the mean time I add lard to make up for the leanness of the meats.

I don't do it all the time but at least 3-5 meals a week. It's easy to just throw together in 10 mins or so. While the meat is cooking you can prepare your veggies.

That is my preferred meals, meat veggies and spice. You can do a lot if you vary all three components. A guy at whole foods said it looked like something Fred Flintstone would eat. who-here-eats-meat+veg+spice--that's-all?

These are my go-to meals. If I don't want to make anything fancy, I'll just throw some hunks of chicken in a pan with some greens, add a tiny bit of water, and cover until cooked. Might throw in some garlic if I'm feeling sassy. My body seems to handle mustard (prepared commercial stuff) quite well, so I flavor a lot with that, but most of the time it's just meat 'n' veggies and a dash of S&P. Works great with salmon, too, but I don't care much for "plain" beef taste.

It can help to prepare lots of veggies into bowls in the fridge beforehand, so you can just grab some stuff and throw it in a pan. If you're big on avoiding AGEs, then keep a lid on it with a tiny bit of water in the pan so it's more "steamed" than "pan fried".

This is the basis for most of my meals too. I assume you are including other sources of animal protein like fish and eggs and some fat in there as well. I try to eat seasonally so the variety just sort of happens. By the time I'm getting sick of something mother nature is ready to move on as well. I always keep basics around. I eat peppers and spinach pretty much every sngle day like medicine. They are just too fabulous not to eat some each day. Do that and you've put a big wallop in the vitamin/mineral requirements. Also cauliflower. Except when it's very hot out I like cauli-rice or mashed cauliflower with almost everything.

I do get in moods to cook or should I say I do sometimes find I have more than 10 minutes available to prepare a meal and I really enjoy cooking but so fat this past year has been little of that and just back to basics for me.

(p.s I just discovered a spice blend called Zhug and I put it on everything. I love this stuff! Best spice blend I've ever come across. It's from Whole Spice

Not I, I need atleast 65% calories from animal fat in my diet. I also make sure to eat lots of fatty fish, seafood, and egg yolks. I feel the best when eating that way.

I also need to drink lots of bone broth every week to make sure my food sensitivities don't come back.

I want to have a very healthy body to prepare for pregnancy. So eating animal fat is important, no way I'd ever give it up.

When eating lean meats I turn them into coconut or butter curry.

My meals always have plenty of vegetables, though.

This is pretty much how I eat most of the time. I have to keep it low carb, plus I don't enjoy cooking and prefer to keep it as simple as possible. And sometimes I don't even bother with the veg for days on end--all I really want is meat, so that's all I eat.

If the meat's too lean I do add fat by putting butter on it, though--herbed butter on a steak is fantastic.
