Does anyone here follow the paleolithic AKA caveman diet?  I'm reading the book on it now, think I might give it a try.  Basically all you eat are whole foods, nothing processed

I've heard of it. Doesn't it have to do with your blood type too? I'm doing the South Beach Diet since I found out that I'm insulin resistant. There is now way I want to become diabetic which is the route I'd be taking if I don't get my cholesteral and insulin under control I think you really have to like meat for the kind of diet you're talking about. I only like fish, chicken and turkey.

Wikipedia has a great definition on this diet... I wasn't sure I knew what it was. I'm concerned about calcium. Are you going to supplement? What led you to think about trying this? Just curious..

here is a link to describe what it's all about

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paleolithic_diet

[quote]The Paleolithic diet consists of foods that can be hunted and fished, such as meat, offal and seafood, and that can be gathered, such as eggs, insects, fruit, nuts, seeds, vegetables, mushrooms, herbs and spices[/quote]

I'm pretty much eating this way already, just need to include some more fruits and veggies.  It just sounds HEALTHY, that's why I'm going to try it.  And yes everything can be cooked lol.  I just finished reading a book about it, "the paleo diet" by cordain.  Good read, I recommend!

If you gather eggs, wheat, and sugar cane, can you make a cake with it? wink
