Time to learn to read ingredient labels for yourself. For salad dressing, look at the fat used. Is it really something you want to put in your body? Not if it's highly processed vegetable, soy, or canola oil. Are there so-called "natural... (more)

They are all absolutely paleo, with the same caveats as anything else: for the black pudding, is it all blood and meat, or are there fillers? If it is free of cheap fillers like grains, was the meat sustainably grown (Grass-fed, pastured, etc.... (more)

Just starting Paleo. How many times a day do you typically eat? I am used to eating 6 times a day, 3 meals and 3 snacks. I am not sure about eating high fat 6 times a day. Help please!

Eat when you are hungry. Eat as much as you want. I used to eat the way you describe. Measuring and counting. LOL Now, I eat twice a day, as much as I want. Your body will adjust when you get off the carb merry-go-round.

I've just started the paleodiet a few weeks ago. How do you shop in order to not get bored from the same food items? I've already run into a rut with the same regiment of 5-6 meals/snacks a day. Any suggestions?

Paleo_Seb 0 · September 26, 2010 at 11:37 PM

Yes they are. Where it becomes un-paleo is when you eat only salad, then you're in vegetarian land. I never eat sprouts like alfalfa sprouts though and they tend to be higher in lectins and phytates because they just came out of their legume state. (more)
