You need to lose more weight.

Keep up the good work.  If you made that kind of progress, its just a matter of time if you stick to it.

Where can I find 90% dark chocolate at? Sounds really yummy.

Whole foods Endagered Species brand puts out an 88% bar for ~2.50 in Salt Lake City.  One of the cheaper bars in the store.

Well, depending on who you are, you will probably be more flatulent and poop a lot more in the first few weeks, at the least.  Like...a lot more.

Doesn't matter much physiologically, given the gains you can make, but that will probably get in the way of you getting ladies more than belly fat...

Diet / Re: Fiberless Meals

From my understanding - Crohn's patients can do with fiber most times, but just not a lot - is that the case with you or does ANY fiber bog you down?  Or is it just the fiber in processed foods, which is most of the time processed from wood chips and not plants humans normally eat?

Anyway, there easiest way you can remove the fiber from your fruits and veg is probably juicing, and passing all juices through a fine mesh sieve would remove most of the fiber.

They can be bad as in harmful. Recent studies have suggested gluten sensitivity for 2/3rds of the population or so.

Citation?  I would be interested in adding that link to my library.

Didn't read but i am hoping to get to it later.

The problem is a lack of government where we need it and an overabundance where we don't.  Government isn't helping the working conditions in the meat packing plants, and has its grubby hands in corn subsidies.

Protein intake is also very different from CAFO meats/dairy/eggs as compared to ethically sourced foods.  FOK is pushing an idealogy, so take it with a grain of salt.  Make your own decisions.  Eating only plant based foods is stupid.  End of story.  I choose not to discuss this at this time though, so will let Brock do it for me.

I'd be interested in reading it.

I'll need time to find it.  It came up a few times in one of the mega-threads between tombb, steve and myself.  I believe it was a full-text, too...

There a study on the yolk being better absorbed raw?

Yeah, a few.  Are you going to make me dig it up? D:

The proteins of the white are much better absorbed when cooked.  The proteins of the yolk are better absorbed raw.  Sunny side up maximizes potential for absorption, or soft boiled eggs.

That said, practically, it doesn't really matter ALL that much.  I just mentioned the above to be a stickler.  Eat your eggs whole, and cooked however the hell you want otherwise.

You dont have to keep a food journal.  No one is twisting your arm.  But until you do, you can't make bogus claims like "I eat so much!"

People who say "I eat all the time but can't put on weight!" are kidding themselves just as much as people who say "I eat so little and never lose weight!"

Keep a damned food journal and keep your perceptions to yourself.  Perceptions don't facilitate progress, they hinder it.  Focus on the facts, ignore what you *think* is going on.

Joys of living in a major city...at least they have 118 beers on tap!

IU eat out in major cities all the time for way less than $80/head.  I'm in NY all the time and routinely get meals for 10-15 bucks...

1 kCal = 1 "calorie" (calorie as it is popularly known)

You eat 3-4 megacals

Some science for ya

My mistake, i meant 3000-4000 kCal.

I've been thinking about asking this for some time now (I guess I forgot once I actually made it to a computer) but could you track and present to us a weeks worth (or whatever logical interval) of meals for you and the associated costs? I'd LOVE to get a look at an example of the amount spent and the proportions and types of food it gets. An example would be Ok but an actual week would be really cool.

I'm going to be moving into an apartment in July... super excited. Already mapped out where the local CFMs are ;D

I spend about $400 a month on food for myself - but I eat out for lunch about 4 times a week and I eat out an expensive dinner at least 1ce a month.  And I drink beers at the pub from time to time with others.  That is all included in the $400 a month.

My groceries tend to be under $200 a month.  If I didn't eat out all the time, I estimate I would spend about $250-$300 a month on food, and I eat about 3-4kCal a day.

To put that into perspective, for $400/month, at 3-4 kCal a day, I am spending $13.00 a day for food in a 30 day month.  That INCLUDES eating out.

An "actual week" is kind of tricky because I go out to eat from time to time, and I buy in bulk (2-3 weeks worth of meat at a time, on occassion).  I keep track of my expenses on a weekly, monthly and yearly basis, and know that my food costs are ~$400 a month, which is about $100 a week, which is about $13 a day.  I very rarely exceed 400 by a lot.  I get all of my home cooked food from farmers, Whole Foods and the produce section of the grocery store.  My restaurant meals include meat and vegetables and tubers.  My lunches include Chipotle, Soup, Whole Foods Salad Bar, etc.

Thing is, it costs a lot of $$$$$$ that you probably don't have.

Uh...what?  No it doesn't.  Not by a long shot.  Most times it is cheaper than non-paleo.
