It's a texture thing. If I get a big hunk of fat, or even a little bit of fat, on a steak I have to spit the bite out. I absolutely can't stand the feel of it in my mouth- can't chew it, and definitely can't swallow it. I've been trying to... (more)

I absolutely can't eat hunks of animal fat either, I just get it from coking with it, or whatever is too micro for me to notice. as long as you eat meat, you'll do great. As far as upping your fat intake coconut oil, olive oil, nuts, butter and... (more)

The fruits & veggies are not a problem if you are thinking of doing a keto diet with him as a keto diet is extremely low carb & high fat with moderate protein. Try to get a little veg down him if you can for nutrients. My (non expert)... (more)

I know exactly how you feel ! Have you heard of Fodmaps or the low fodmap diet ? Save yourself some discomfort and check it out !! pay special attention to the vegetable section...and of course you can suit the low fodmap diet into paleo .

I'm 7 weeks pregnant, and I've been paleo for about a year and half. Pretty strict about it too, I very rarely cheated. Well now that I'm pregnant, meat is about the most disgusting thing I've ever seen, and cooking smells make me gag. I can force... (more)

Currently 37 weeks and about to pop, and had the same issue through the first and second trimesters. I had to relent and let myself eat what I could, bagels and macaroni, cereal, oatmeal, and milk. Meat was just repulsive and though previously... (more)

So I've been Paleo/Primal for about three years, although I've fallen off the wagon a few times in there. Over the past six months, I've developed a strong aversion to the smell of dairy. It started with periods of time where I gagged at the smell... (more)

You are in ketosis, which is why you still have lots of energy. Which can be a good thing, but is also contributing to the nausea and lack of appetite. You also probably decimated your gut bacteria with the combination of medications, so... (more)

Take cilantro, for example. Personally, I could eat the stuff all day long. I load up my carnitas with it, chop it up and add it to salads and side dishes, etc. But it seems like everyone else I know absolutely hates it. Do certain foods have a... (more)

Some people are "supertasters," meaning they taste things a lot more intensely than others. There appears to be certain foods that are particularly overwhelming for these people like the cabbage family, citrus and some herbs.

It's weird for me anyway. No, I'm not pregnant. Anyway, the problem is that I have issues with both eggs and casein, so eggs are out. This leaves me with vegan fare, and all the paleo stuff is inadequate in protein. I know some people are good... (more)

Have you tried plainer, less, or differently seasoned meat? I find it easier to eat meat everyday if it's completely unseasoned. It feels more natural and is better tasting, to me at least. :)

I have been eating at least 0.5 lb of meat from various sources (fish, poultry, beef, pork, organs, etc.) everyday for the last 10 months. Now I can't stand the smell or even the thought of eating meat. I can only stomach cooked vegetables and... (more)

First: What have your macronutrient ratios been like? How low carb have you been eating? When you say you've been eating "at least" a half-pound of meat every day, that suggests to me you often eat significantly more. I'm a pretty happy... (more)
