Hello...maybe we can revive this thread...I'm just learning about Paleo and I agree with it's premise but have also read that a few neolithic foods seem to be healthful and can be included like butter/some oils/fish oil...some discourage dairy because it wasn't paleo but are there health objections to dairy in general or modern dairy with its pastuerization and homogenization? I've been studying and practicing low carb for a few months now and Paleo is similar but it allows more fruits which I assume will create insulin spikes and their detrimental consequences......these are just randon thoughts/questions I have at the moment...any thoughts out there?

Dairy is a very common allergen and is insulinogenic. It's not a good idea for fat loss.

I'm constantly looking for excuses to include dairy in my diet, but honestly? It's probably not that awesome. I had no trouble going gluten-free - it was easy, but dairy is apparently like crack for me - I just can't stay off it for more than a few days at a time.

Personally, I would rank dairy this way:

1) raw, grass-fed
2) grass-fed
3) pasteurized, but not homogenized
4) pasteurized, homogenized, but additive-free
5) Anything with any additives (gums like carageenan or any sweeteners at all)
6) Ultra-high temp (UHT) pasteurized of any kind. This is shelf-stable, 100% un-natural dairy, whether it's organic or not. Total garbage.

At the moment, I'm sticking to 1 and 2 only. This allows me to buy butter locally, and I make yogurt from my raw milk share (grass-fed jersey cows).

Cows simply should simply not be eating grain. It completely changes the fat profile of the milk. In the winter, some people feed hay, and some local dairies here simply don't have milk in the very coldest winter months (December - February, usually).

I have found the blogs by Dr. Kurt Harris and Dr. Peter Dobromylskyj quite helpful, in learning about this way of eating. The links are in my signature.

I really enjoy eating this way.

Best wishes to all.

I'm doing a modified paleo. Totally off soy, grains.... Still on milk with tea, untinted cheese, coffee... But much improved. I was practically vegetarian 17 years ago and came down with CFS and Fibromyalgia.. Got myself out of bed by improving my nutrition. Just 3 years ago I began a more intensive exercise program. Gently increasing with time. I feel much stronger that 3 years ago. Thankful for that...

I'm new to this site and searching around for likable threads...

Giving this thread a little bump, in case anyone on a Paleo food plan is looking for other Paleo-ers.

I follow Primal Blueprint--but only vaguely. I actually don't buy all the "eat like our ancestors" stuff, but when I first noticed this website and the information about Primal eating, I had already given up grains and dairy. I'd been eating low carb for years, but I'd also given up all artificial sweeteners within the past year. So the only actual change I made was switching from my natural peanut butter to almond butter (my major treat--which I have to ration carefully).

I also like Mark Sisson's ideas about most people exercising too much. Perhaps because I'm 69 and know I have to exercise "gently," it's nice to know that a real fitness buff agrees.

Of course, I don't eat as many carbs as he recommends (50-100g), but that's because I'm super-sensitive to carbs, and I also don't eat fruit (which he permits) because of the carbs.

But eating this cleanly and simply, I feel great.

I'm a walking advert for Paleo...literally: my Vibrams are my favourite shoes ;-)

I currently have 5 converts all trying it out and all doing well.

Nahican, which version of Paleo are you following?

There are quite a few of us here who eat some form of Paleo. There are Lacto-Paleo/Pastoral plans, and plans with only butter/cream, some eat only butter, some no nightshades or nuts, etc.

The most active thread with Paleo folks is the non-specific VLC/ZC support thread.

This sounds like a diet I can stick to. I like protein, but I like non-starchy veggies. And some fruit like melon, berries.

Hey all,
What are you coffee drinkers substituting for HWC? It's the one thing that keeps me from being pure Paleo. Thanks
