Just name anything Paleo-related that you can no longer tolerate without your BP going up?
If I have to hear somebody refer to "healthy fats" one more time, I'll scream. I swear. Usually they're referring to canola oil or peanut butter -- and it's always an anorexic amount, like a scant teaspoon -- but by gum, they're getting in their "healthy fats" today!
Or if somebody boasts about eating hummus or quinoa "for the protein"...! FFS, mate. Eat a damn'd steak already. Every time I read/hear of such an instance, a tiny, cold part of my heart wrenches and wishes oozing buttne on them.
Oh, and if one more person botches the use of lose/loose, I'm sure I'll snap. I just know it.
That is all. /steps off soapbox
People saying "but I could never give up bread" when they ask me what I eat.
Far and away the biggest three things for me are:
The near constant equating of what works for people coming from a metabolically damaged, unhealthy, perhaps overweight background with what is "healthy" for the rest of us. That is where the paleo=lowcarb thing came from.
The fear of insulin. (we have it for a reason)
The thought that you need seriously huge fat-intake to be healthy.
One more: the overly strong fear of cortisol. Workouts over one hour are avoided because of a fear of cortisol. Who cares! Short temporary rises in cortisol are fine. It's only chronically raised levels from society and our schedules is the problem.
Acknowledged non-paleos coming over and eating my grass-fed organic raw milk cheese when there is a perfectly good block of Kraft crap cheese in the fridge for them.
when I tell people what I eat (eggs, meat, etc...) and they say "aren't you worried about your cholesterol?"... freaking annoying!
Articles/websites/people saying paleo is bad because it's low-carb. Or because you need a "balanced" diet.
(P.S. I have nothing against low-carb. I also dislike people dissing low-carb unless they're really familiar with it...)
and as much as I love Robb Wolf, the terms paleo- 'schtick', 'gig', and 'deal'
If we're talking pet peeves about Paleohacks it's people who don't know the difference between 'loose' and 'lose' - drives me nuts!!! Stop writing about all the weight you have to loose - loose is an adjective not a verb!! You want your clothes to be loose not your body. It doesn't take two minutes to proof read your post. Sorry I'm an English teacher - its my job to notice these things. Thank you for giving me a chance to say this.
