You know you have gone over the Paleo Cliff when...you put bacon fat in your coffee.

When you stick butter in your coffee at a wedding and don't even second guess. When the person next to you stares at you in disgust you say "sorry I don't eat grains" because you think they are pointing to the wheat on your plate.

When you're too embarrassed to tell your family how much coconut oil you are ingesting daily, especially off the spoon.

Having a friend pop in right in the middle of me eating a chunk of butter straight off the stick. Hehe.

When you buy 4.5 kilos of grass-fed butter at once, cause you're not sure if the farm store down the street will close at a moment's notice (I live in Turkey - small family-owned businesses often pop-up and then disappear a couple months later)

When the best part of your weekend is eating the amazing, delicious leftover bits of fat, gelatin, marrow, and meat left on and in the beef bones after making bone broth. It's amazing! NOM NOM NOM!

I just finished gnawing and sucking on a bowl of beef bones while my girlfriend looked on as if I'd completely lost it. Little does she know what she's missing!

When you get annoyed that your friend/family member is in the kitchen while you're cooking because you can't nom on butter while you wait for your food. Or when you eat the grease left in the pan with your fingers after you cook up some meatstuffs.

When you discover yet another wonderful use for bacon fat - giving pills to cats. Coating the pill in bacon fat before giving it to the cat makes it a ton easier. I bet it would work for dogs, too.

When my local rancher helps me load 10 dozen eggs in my car and asks if I'm buying so many eggs because I'm having family over for Thanksgiving. "No, that's just what we (my husband and I) eat in a month."

Or...

When I eat the smoked fatty steak trim off my sister's plate at a nice restaurant.

Or...

When I render tallow and put it in an old coconut oil jar. And think it's so clever that I put it on facebook.

When you start looking for a TOOTHPASTE that doesn't have corn derivatives (sorbitol, xylitol) or other artificial sweeteners. That was my personal jumping off the cliff point. I found that there is only 1 brand (Desert Essences, so far) and fortunately it comes in a variety of flavors. Then you know you've smashed on the rocks when you tell people about your Paleo search for toothpaste and are trying to convince them about how much toothpaste one ingests in a lifetime (and guessing like a fisherman) !

Not as funny (or fat-related) but when I finally gave away all my cake tins and dry ingredient storage containers I knew I was committed.

Ooh, I've got another! When your fat-phobic mum removes the chicken skin off the breast and you feel like it's a crime against humanity. That was one dry chicken.
