Meat – with a focus on incorporating more organ meat and offal – is a paleo mainstay. The plan also encourages shellfish; a large variety of vegetables; some fruit; fats including fatty fish and coconut oil; probiotic foods and glycine-rich foods like bone broth.
Cutting legumes and starches reduces excessive blood sugar fluctuations. We don't realize that bad bacteria in your gut thrives and eats off of sugar....thus, overgrowth of bacteria, especially yeast, can stimulate inflammation in susceptible people.
In previous posts and current ones, meat has been the main component in meals. Sides are usually, potatoes, root vegetables or pasta. Very few salads and raw vegetables are suggested simply because of the digestion aspect; such roughage is more likely to cause intestinal problems for some people which is mostly due to the fact that they contain insoluble fiber. Moreover, for anyone concerned with sugars and weight gain, let it be known that all vegetables contain sugar of differing amounts.
The best advice is always to know your own body. We just don't listen closely or if we do, we don't want to pay attention to what we are hearing. If your body tells you not to eat something, then don't. The mind often says 'yes' when the body says 'no'. And, visa versa. Listening to your body is the key. It takes years for some people, or a trip to the emergency room before they admit that did not listen to their body. Listen and live well!
