Currently my diet is "paleo influenced" - most meals consist of eggs, salad, and/or cooked vegetables with meat about once per week (usually pork tenderloin, sometimes steak). To up the calories, I add tahini and olive oil to just about... (more)

I'm doing something kind of like this. Not exactly avoiding meat but not going all out either. I've only been Paleo for a few months but have obsessively learned a great deal about oil. My first question is: Where's the butter? I... (more)

My downfall seems to be treating myself to tahini or dark chocolate. Which would be healthiest and/or better for less weight gain between the two?

thanks everybody! kudos to the Robb Wolf comment! I don't consume Tahini, I just see it in the stores all the time and wondered because I have not read a lot about it in any of the books. Don't consume a lot of nuts anyway because of their... (more)

I eat about 2 tbs of Tahini a day, along with a tad of honey for something Halva like. The nutritional data shows 3.5g omega 6 PUFA per tbs for 7g fat per day that I'm getting. I'm destroying my Paleo diet, huh? Doesn't seem like I could eat... (more)

Went to the doc and told him I removed dairy from my table, and he recommeneded Tahini or sardins. As I don't eat fish, is Tahini Paleo safe? Otherwise it seems very hard to reach the RDA levels of calcium. Saw some old questions on the subject... (more)

Forget about the RDA. It's based on a high-phytate, low vitamin D diet and results in the calcification of soft tissues (and fails to prevent osteoporosis) in SAD-eaters because they don't eat enough K2. For those of us who do eat enough K2... (more)
