This diet plan sounds solid, I'm not gonna lie though, I like to cheat every once in a while, a soda here, a candy bar there.
I'm going to jail soon, probably this coming week due to a probation violation, I won't go into detail but obviously I'll have to eat what they give me, there will be no option of going to the kitchen and fixing a healthy meal.

But when I get out, I'll try to conform as much as I can to this diet.
However with my non-existent budget I'm forced to eat what's in my grandmothers kitchen and I'm gonna be the first to tell you she doesn't have a whole lot of healthy foods in there.. lol

damn it paddy you better knock the bullshit off! >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(
anyways, live and learn. once you get out dont go back. :)


I'm glad you feel that way Terry, cause I don't want anyone on these boards to follow in my footsteps.
I don't plan on going back, the only reason I'm going in the first place is because of a probation violation which need not be discussed here now, and I will be asking the judge to keep me in jail for the remainder of my probation  (3 months) so that I will not have to be on probation any longer, because call me a pansy or whatever, but probation is too stressful, and too hard right now.
However, once I am out whether they keep me 20 days or 3 months, I will be on the straight and narrow.
Something I should have been doing all along.

Keep it real Terry.

I like to touch different kinds of surface textures.

First, I just want to ask if there are any objections to these?
To me, it just makes logical sense, based on human history, to eat foods that were only available as a primitive being.


Anywho,
Quote
Eat none of the following:

· Grains- including bread, pasta, noodles

· Beans- including string beans, kidney beans, lentils, peanuts, snow-peas and peas

· Potatoes

· Dairy products

· Sugar

· Salt

Eat the following:

· Meat, chicken and fish

· Eggs

· Fruit

· Vegetables (especially root vegetables, but definitely not including potatoes or sweet potatoes)

· Nuts, eg. walnuts, brazil nuts, macadamia, almond. Do not eat peanuts (a bean) or cashews (a family of their own)

· Berries- strawberries, blueberries, raspberries etc.

 Try to increase your intake of:

· Root vegetables- carrots, turnips, parsnips, rutabagas, Swedes

· Organ meats- liver and kidneys (I accept that many people find these unpalatable and won’t eat them)

Expect some minor tuning problems- don’t worry, you can deal with them:

· It will take some time for your body to adjust to the changes after all these years. There is a huge surge in your vitamin intake. There is a huge decrease in your toxin intake.

Milk's gonna be the hardest for me to back off of, it's a great alternative to water, mainly because of consistency and unique taste.
Have to say, didn't know peanut was a bean.
I completely backed off of bread/starch/grain stuff, and haven't had a problem. I personally feel a lot better (must be the lack of sugar spiking) =D


So, simply put, what are the benefits and lack of detriments?
Also, can someone help clear up which vegetables are legit, and which aren't?

Well he said potatoes, beans, and wheat were the big three.All beans, peas, and apparently peanuts. Wheats as well. The potato family includes, normal potatoes, sweet potatoes, eggplants, yams, and other stuff, look up the nightshade family.

He said to avoid foods you have to cook(i dont think he includes meat in that), which includes all of the above and then some.




And while it makes sense, i think our bodies have adapted beyond the point of  a pure paleo. diet. i dont think a slight amount of grains dairy and beans would be detrimental, because humans have been consuming them for tens of thousands of years, im not too sure how long ago agriculture was invented, might be exaggeration.  This is pure opinion though im not trying to put it off as fact

Agriculture started about 10,000years ago, and in my opinion our bodies are still not used to grains and dairy's (eggs are exception).

My one rule is make vegetables and meat your staple not grains and dairy.

Most people I talk to say milk is generally okay. Not necessary, but an acceptable addition. Personally, milk has never given me problems. What is it about eggs that makes it a preffered/acceptable form of dairy?

Thanks for the time frame Stefan.
I agree with you on making meat and veggies/fruit your staples.

Did you mean to call eggs dairy?

Yeah I meant to say eggs are not dairy. Chicken's are birds and they were around even before humans, and I am pretty sure that our crazy ancestors were stealing their eggs all the time  ;D

Yeah, I didn't think of it like that =$ I'm ashamed of myself...I think it's just generally recognized as such for some reason.

So I'd take it raw eggs are legit (although probably not all that great tasting)?

raw eggs are amazing, I don't eat them that way anymore dunno why.
Just put em in a glass mix with fork and then add maple syrup or natural honey and mix some more and enjoy.

Raw eggs can be good.  I put a little bit of soy sauce in and eat (I suppose it'd be "drink") it with some crackers or a wheat pita.  Kinda like a soup, I guess.  But it CAN cause salmonella.  Some people have a genetic disposition to catching it, some people a resistance.  I wouldn't suggest trying it unless you're sure.  If you can eat runny eggs without getting sick, try for a litlt erunnier.. then push the envelope furhter.  Of course, there's really no point in doing this, as cooked eggs are just as good as raw ones.

debateable, from what I've read raw food is generally much richer in nutrients.

yes, but you should be getting enough protein with cooked eggs. imo, im not sure the extra protein vs. the chance of getting sick is worth the risk. i would just cook another egg if i felt that i needed more protein. raw (washed) veggies are a different story.

So, just to be safe, cook it? Sounds good, I don't know if I'd like the taste of raw egg anyway
