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)

Hello! I just have a little question or two, if anyone may have some ideas. I consume no sugar, grains, legumes, alcohol, caffeine. The problem: Peas (when I had just started primal and found out they were a no-no) Brusselsprouts, Chocolate +... (more)

This may simply be a food intolerance (not necessarily food allergy). Seeing as how you have eliminated them, it shouldn't be an issue but you can get something like an ALCAT food test to really find out

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)

I am recovering from a case of bad case of pneumonia that lasted about three weeks. During the time I was ill, my appetite decreased dramatically, and due to the coughing and terrible pain I could really only manage small and inconsistant amounts... (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)

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)

How long has this been going on? If it's short-lived, you won't need to worry so much about protein sources. Have you tried more fish or meats you don't usually eat? I know sometimes I get tired of meats I've always loved, possibly due to eating... (more)

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)
