I just found this community and thought I'd do a brief introduction. I first came into contact with paleolithic eating when I worked as a language consultant on the Swedish translation of Loren Cordain's book The Paleo Diet (my job was basically to help translate all the scientific terms and proofread it since I'm both a part-time translator and have a Master's in Biotech engineering). Because of my science background, I've always been highly skeptical of fad diets and most of the current ones are no exception. To me, paleolithic eating is not a just another diet however, but just good plain common sense. It just comes down to eating what's good for you.

Anyway, about three years ago, I decided to really give this way of eating and living a try and followed the rules to the letter for four and a half months. I lost 25 lbs, my skin cleared up and I just felt great. Oh, and my teeth felt 100% clean all the time too. While I'd never dream of giving up brushing my teeth, I probably could have done so with no ill effects at that point. I have since fallen off the wagon to a degree (although I eat far less of your typical neolithic food items compared to the average person), and am now looking to get back on it. I love experimenting with new recipes so if I stumble across something that tastes good, I promise to post it.

Have a good day everyone!

so what does your weekly diet usually consist of these days?

Well, up until about a month ago (when I really fell off the wagon), my typical breakfast has always been two soft-boiled eggs and a banana. I've always eaten breakfast, I just don't eat a lot in the morning. I never keep bread in the house, and very rarely eat pasta. Typical dinner for me is something like a chicken stir-fry, which can be varied tons of different ways, and works great without the rice. Aside from that, I snack a lot - in a good way. I'll have a handful of nuts or even just grab a whole tomato. I actually like cooking, but haven't had the piece of mind to do it lately. I also eat a lot of game meat since I live in one of those countries where you can get it all year round at the regular store. I honestly can't come up with a list of what I eat exactly, but give me two weeks and I'll get back to you. :)
