Meat and Veggies for your main meals!

“Generally speaking the “if you have to ask” rule is going to apply in most paleo food question situations.  If the food in question is not on the list in Robb’s book or listed on the website it’s probably NOT truly paleo.  That being said, if you are losing sleep at night because you used some tamari in your stir-fry or had vinegar and olive oil dressing on your salad then it’s time to relax.  On the other hand if you can’t sleep because you just ate a bowl of oatmeal with agave, had a cup of coffee and polished off a pint of coconut ice cream you may want to revisit the ‘list’.” – robb wolf’s site

We are in this paleo challenge together because there is ABSOLUTELY NO BETTER TIME IN THE WORLD to do it.  Could  you do it alone? Maybe, but for most of you, it’s not probable to do it strictly for this long.  If you have to ask if it’s ok, then DON’T EAT IT!  Every meal eat meat and vegetables. Stick to coconut oil or olive oil. Snacks should include a small portion of fat/protein (not loaded sugary fruit).

If you are hungry a lot, dizzy, and possibly nauseaus you might not be eating enough, and enough of the good stuff. Try to eat more meat.   If you are feeling bloated, I’d need you to look at your food journal but Heather was right when commenting on the blog posts – check how much salt you add to your foods.  Try to keep your veggie intake HIGH!  Are there meat and vegetables at every meal? Are you eating too many nuts? Eating too much fruit might maintain cravings, not help them go away.
