Hey, steelicarus, are you still a paleo/primal fan? I'd be nice to hear from you? What's your blog name?

Best regards from Slovenia!

I think it's mostly meats, roots and veggies.  But it excludes ALL GRAINS, LEGUMES, DAIRY, and refined sugars and salts.  No processed foods.

How it's possible to live without lentils and pasta I'll never know.

You're on the right tracks, Koukouvagia - it's eating meat, fish, fowl, vegetables, fruit and nuts in moderation.  Sugar, dairy, refined oils, processed foods and additives, all grains (including corn and rice) and legumes as well as very starchy tubers such as potatoes are out.  It's also about the quality of your food - organic where possible, local, naturally raised/reared foods are preferable whenever possible.  Natural fats such as lard, tallow, EVO and coconut oil are used to cook with.

I thought that it would be impossible to live without bread, pasta, etc, but the health benefits I've reaped have outstripped any lingering desires for those (as has a diagnosis of coeliac disease  lol ).  I've also noticed that I haven't been ill in 18 months, and that my hayfever has completely disappeared for 2 years in a row - can't be coincidence!  Oh, and my blood pressure and cholesterol is down, too!  And my optician and dentist are very happy as my eyesight and teeth have improved, as well.

Re: Caveman is here..

I have heard that the key is keeping weight at a healthy level and being sure to get sufficient nutrition, not so much whether you eat a particular diet, as long as you get sufficient nutrition.  It seems like a diet where you could easily get sufficient nutrition for good health and if it helps you to maintain a healthy weight or to lose weight if needed, that would seem to be the biggest benefit, I would think.

No doubt!  But I'm an addict you see.  I'm addicted to potatoes and bread, which then leads to an addition to sugar see?  It's all a carefully devised plan of modern food production to keep us addicted to food.

I am convinced it is.  Think about how different our diet is now than it was just 50 years ago.  Don't you think that processed food has had a horrific effect on the health of the general population??  I try to picture my Grandmother walking through the grocery store and not being able to identify most things on the shelves.
