If most people practicing a paleo lifestyle follow the 80/20 or 90/10 rule, what's the point of staying away from foods like nuts and fruits if cheat meals/foods are still on the table? I personally struggle with what whole foods should make up... (more)

Why stay away from nuts / fruits? Coconut / Macadamia / Olive / Avocado oil is the stuff. I eat fruit / nut fats everyday with most meals. If ice cream is your thing, learn how to make some legit ice cream. I like this graphic. (more)

hi Glither, acc to Dr Keith Scott-Mumby - it's the frequency not quantitiy of eating the food you are intolerant to. I find i "blow up" from different foods - my weight will go up 3-4 lbs overnight, and takes about 4 days for it to come down... (more)

I hear people talk about the "80 / 20" way of eating Paleo, and when I they admit to what the other 20% is, it's usually that they eat potatoes, some sort of dairy product, or even just a chocolate bar. I haven't heard anyone admit to eating any... (more)

This is just one guy's free advice, but.... My advice is to commit to going 100% for 30 days. See how well you do (or don't do). Adjust (or not) from there. I never, ever felt as good in my entire life as I did when I was 100% compliant (with... (more)

Ello. I've been reading more and more about the Paleo diet through websites, blogs and journals. Something that crossed my mind was the 80/20 rule. So, I would really appreciate it if someone would elaborate on that rule. PLEASE and THANK YOU!... (more)

I think this rule is best interpreted as strive for 100% - but if you slip up every once in a while don't beat yourself up over it!

I'm new to paleo and incorporating at least some paleo elements into my diet (increasing fat and meat intake, eliminating grains and sugar, decreasing industrial oil intake), shooting for fat loss and, more importantly, improved well-being... (more)

I think Kurt harris' twelve steps are exactly what you need. See here http://www.archevore.com/get-started/ First step is fix sleep. Next step is no sugar that is not naturally in the food (read berries and some fruit. Don't go overboard and... (more)

Please excuse the overly broad and lengthy question. What if how we are eating is good for health and makes you a happy Crossfitter or Movnatter, but is not optimal for lifespan? Not that there is any one "paleo diet", but most of us eat lots of... (more)

...and did you feel any different than when you were less strict? These are the three horses of the SAD apocolypse, hence singling them out. I haven't gone more than a week or so uber-strict, because of the odd dark chocolate, Chipotle... (more)

I had to laugh at this post. Chocolate, Chipotle, and all out cheats = my triangle of doom as well. I can probably go two weeks. The house is clean and tight except for a box of flaked quinoa (which I have no problem with but I know the... (more)

The Paleo Diet and other plans involve a few flex meals each week. I hate the term cheat meal, but I guess that's a personal bias. Anyway, Here's my question: Among those who do an 80-85% compliance thing do you see better results (look,... (more)

It's what I do on a regular basis that has more impact, for good or for worse. So, even for an "open" meal, I prefer to limit it to a very small window (say, one meal once in a while) rather than a little snack here and there. The body should be... (more)

I've met a wide range of paleo followers, from the orthodoxy, who consider eating yams and rice as cheating, to the very loose paleoites, who eat bread from time to time. There's a lot of things that can be argued as non-paleo and part of the 20%... (more)

Great question! I am in the Jaminet, Kresser, Harris camp when it comes to starches. So I don't view starchy veggies and tubers as cheats. So potato and rice are part of my daily diet. I also feel if you can tolerate diary it is not a cheat,... (more)

So I've heard about 80/20 paleo to increase sustainability of healthy eating, but how many meals per week would be too much

Whenever it's too much for you to be meating your health goals, that's too much. It's an individual thing. If you were, for some unknown reason, trying to strictly shooting for the 80%/20% guideline, which is a very vague and general... (more)

I make non-paleo stuff for desserts cuz it's just not worth it IMHO. Desserts aren't a norm for most conscientious paleo eaters so just make it a "time machine delicacy from the future". If your looking for a very easy, yet ultra rich cake, try... (more)
