But really, they are all like: Why do you have eggs for breakfast!! That is SO weird and unappetizing ...

Wow, you surprised me with the eggs for breakfast thing. What do Italians typically eat for breakfast?

There's an entire Italian group on the forums on Robb Wolf's website.

Hello there! I am from Italy and actually I lived in Bologna for many years although right now I live in Milan.

Yes eating eggs for breakfast is "generally" considered crazy in Italy. I don't really like to talk too much about what I eat anyway.

I have been paleo for about a year and a half, but only in the last few weeks I have been experimenting with intermittent fasting, so no more eggs. We'll see how that goes.

Also I have really upped my carbs (rice and potatoes) in the last few months as I train brazilian jiu jitsu 5 times a week and that really depletes my glycogen stores. I feel much better now.

Ciao!

Although I am not living in Italy, I can tell you I'm in the same situation. I live in israel, most people have no idea what is paleo and they know nothing about nutrition. people here don't eat alot of meats, fruits or vegetable. most people eats lots of snacks, junk food, sugars, gluten, omega 6 rich foods etc. it is a taboo here to eat saturated fat or not to eat gluten. i don't even know one person in reale life who knows what is paleo. But, not all people eats like that, but mostly are.
