Paleo diet - Page 28

post #406 of 454
I just started this diet a few days ago. I was a heavy heavy grains and carbs eater. In the last few days I've cut them cold turkey (except alcohol, can't quit that) and it hasn't been so easy. I feel hungry a lot and my energy levels are lower as a result. I know it's too early to draw any real conclusions, but I'm wondering if others experiences were similar when first breaking from grains.

Yes, but only for a couple weeks, I get the same, when I eat grain/sugar.

Had pancakes last week, felt like shit for two days.

I haven't been reading this thread, but I cut out grains and sugar and cut back on things like potatoes and legumes, and my appetite almost immediately went down, not up. I've been eating a lot of nuts, cheese, eggs and meat. I find snacking on nuts or cheese will satisfy my appetite a lot better than chips or popcorn or sweets - I definitely have no urge to munch mindlessly on non-carbs like I would on sweets or chips. Surprisingly, my calorie intake has been almost identical (around 1900/day). I lost about 6 pounds pretty quickly, but I'm assuming that was mostly water.

There was study not to long ago saying that humans are not made to digest lactose, so just because we have done something for x amount of years doesn't make it correct.

Those who are NOT lactose intolerant in adulthood are the mutants. Literally. Having said that, it is a useful mutation, eh? smile.gif

Oh, and regarding what diet we may or may not be designed for, our teeth and length of digestive tract are the giveaways -- we are omnivores.

Still, many people will benefit from avoiding processed foods, which tend to be mostly carbohydrate because the stuff stores so well and is relatively cheap to produce.

this was the only good point:

pointed out that evolutionary fitness is measured by reproductive success, not by the health or longevity of an individual.

the rest was nothing new and some responses showed a lack of understanding of the paleo diet.

I agree, I've seen most of these points made elsewhere, but I thought most of the points were valid critiques of at least some forms of the paleo diet and worth reading.

How many of you drink, smoke, talk on the phone while driving, spend thirty+ hours per week in front of a computer monitor or television, keep your radiation-emitting cellphone in your pocket at all time, etc.....? But God forbid you eat some grains or have a snickers bar, right? facepalm.gif

I love posts like this. "I can't believe the people in this thread are are talking about a subject in which I have no interest. What a bunch of morons. No, not done, wait facepalm.gif There. Glad I got that off my chest."

Honestly, that's really the worst kind of off topic drive by blather, and the kind of thing that derails way too many threads on this forum.

there may be some discrepancies in the reasoning behind the diet, but i don't see how fault is found in the diet itself. it's probably the most healthful diet so unless there's something harmful about it, then the general purpose is achieved. seems like those who feel challenged by others being paleo are the ones questioning the healthfulness of their own eating habits but dont want to put effort into changing it.

Where's your evidence and how do you define healthful?

i'm not going to look for links explaining the health benefits of unprocessed and whole foods just to have you nit pick a fault with each one. healthful meaning contributing to good health. of course it was used generally because dietary requirements can vary and there are some variations for what is classified as paleo diet.
