Question on restrictions

Answered on August 20, 2014

Newbie here,

I started reading a book called "Eat the yolks" and so far it seems interesting

I understand the benefits of eating this way but I keep asking myself "Can I eat this or that?"

my basic rule is if it has a nutritional label don't eat it. (I guess to stick with natural as possible food options)

red meat, eggs, butter, coconut oil, avocados.

what about fruit? what do I need to avoid?

why is cheese not an option?

Is there a quick list I reference?

thanks

I pointed out that there's no need to avoid nutrition labels...I don't get why that makes me a horrible person according to the OP. Oh and apparently I don't have friends and I'm an ass, lol. Sorry but the OP has sensitivity issues.

Umm, "horrendous attitude"? Are you butthurt? Lol :D Stop being so sensitive, I never offended you personally, all I said is that there's nothing wrong with nutrition labels. If that offends you, then you are way too soft for the interwebs.

I guess I should have stated that I try to stay with food that is as natural as possible, I did clearly state in the first two words of my post, "Newbie here"

and yes I agree that nutrition labels are my friend, I also have human friends, I'm pretty sure you don't.

Your attitude is horrendous, This is the welcoming I get on my first stupid question? Wow.

Geez if turns you into an @ss like you, then I want no part of it.

"Natural as possible food options" sounds like you've got the jist of it. I like to make / eat cheese, where I don't see too big of an issue there if you're not lactose intolerant and you're able to get nice dairy from quality small farms. I'm going to whip up some grassfed goat mozzarella.

Red meat, eggs, butter, coconut oil, and avocados are tasty items, but that's only small portion of the spectrum (4/5 of which tend to be pretty high on the SFA+cholesterol.) Throw in some oysters / seafood, hearts / livers / bones / organs, lbs of plants, nuts / seeds, different fat sources, colorful herbs, starches, etc. to diversify your portfolio. I eat fruit, usually covered in fat and surrounded in fiber. Lately, I don't get down with fruits like bananas / melons / pineapples (especially not by themselves, or juiced, or dehydrated) or much of the starches for the large amount of sweet high-gi carbs, but ymmv for your goals.

What's wrong with nutrition labels? Is information a bad thing now? Eggs, butter and coconut oil have nutrition labels by the way. This is faulty logic. Nutrition labels are your friend if you're serious about eating healthy, not the other way around.
