Getting back on an even keel nutrition wise? If you have questions abut the serious-rules-paleo, here are their guidlines:
- YES to meat, seafood, vegetables, some fruit, eggs, nuts, and seeds. Beef, pork, chicken, lamb, seafood, tuna, salmon, shrimp. Avocado, asparagus, arugula, spinach, broccoli, celery, sweet potatoes, yams, any type of leafy green, red cabbage, artichoke. Berries, melon, pomegranate. Chicken eggs, ostrich eggs. (no Do Do eggs). Almonds, brazil nuts, walnuts.
- No to processed foods. Pretty much anything in the middle of the grocery store. Can't recognize it growing or running around in the wild? Don't eat it.
- No to sugar. Doesn't matter if it's super natural 100% organic fair trade sugar from the honey of communitarian bees, ITS STILL SUGAR. No sweeteners, no agave nectar, honey or maple syrup.
- No grains. This includes bread, rice, pasta, cereal, oatmeal, corn and all of those gluten-free pseudo-grains like quinoa and sprouted grains.
- No to legumes. Peanuts, peanut-butter, beans, peas, lentils.
- No to dairy. Milk, cheese, yogurt, etc.
- Less alcohol. No sugary mixers, no beer or alcohols containing gluten.
- Fewer sweet fruits and starchy vegetables. Bananas, eating a bunch of apples, dried fruit, or white potatoes. (If you have serious inflammation issues like arthritis, you may want to consider avoiding all nightshades for 30 days.)
- Cook with real fats. If you're cooking, then cook with lard or animal fat. If you don't have that, then cook with coconut oil, olive oil, or butter. (with thanks to Hunter-Gatherer)
Stick with it!
And in the spirit of good low carb living, make sure and watch the CF Journal interview with Gary Taubes. Here's a link to the main site teaser MAC / WMV. Somewhere in his work, focused on low carb and higher fat intake, lies the answer to a healthier, more athletic you.
