Great, that makes about 3 of us now that could do a challenge together in the future. What do you think about starting Oct 1st?
That sounds good, in the next month I am going to work on lowering my dairy.

I like butter but I love coconut oil so that is no big deal.

I am not huge on cheese but I love parmesan and sometimes it gives the food I eat a little kick.

I met medical intuitive Carolyn Sutherland and she told me that I should eliminate dairy. This was about 4 months ago and I thought it was interesting because I am lactose intolerant and lately soft cheeses and yogurt have started to bother me. I am at the point where I can only eat hard cheeses so I might as well give them up since they aren't good for me.

I love my ceasar and taco salads though

Not paleo but have you tried Bragg's Nutritional Yeast instead of parmesan? I has a cheesy taste without the lactose problem.

I have not tried it, I used to use their aminos but I stopped, I will try look out for this the next time I am at the health food store

I'm doing the challenge, but not whole 30. I have a ton of weight to lose, so I don't see the point in getting super strict yet. One banana is not going to derail my weight loss at this point.

I am cutting out all dairy, but may use a little stevia in homemade marinara/bbq sauce. I really don't want to cook a separate meal for the rest of the family. I got some raw almonds, and plan to have a few nuts sometimes. I got raw unsalted so I'm not tempted to overeat, I understand nut calories add up fast.

I'm also eliminating dried, but not fresh, fruit. I'll limit it to 1-2 servings fruit/day.

I'm going to spend this weekend with my family and in-laws in an RV at a state park, my MIL is a carb-happy food pusher, so that should make things challenging enough!!

I hate that so many dried fruits have either nitrates (apricots) or sugar added. Seems they take something perfectly wonderful and mess it up!

I can get a lot of sugar- and so2- free dried fruit at my co op, but I find it's too easy to eat way too many calories at once by eating it. I keep it in the hous as a relatively healthy snack for my toddler, though.

Wow I have never come across a paleo or primal author who says no to coffee...

actually most will acknowledge that coffee is NOT paleo. firstly and definitively, it is a seed within a fruit and not edible raw and therefore not paleo.

also most paleo authors will state that the only true paleo beverage is water and accept teas/infusions because they are basically just plant water.

why they are allowed on many paleo plans I don't know...but I DO know that if I get a bad headache I WILL have some rather than suffer. I am working on giving it up though. it's a stimulant and I feel that I am addicted to it although not as much as many people.

it is not listed on the Whole 30...but I didn't see it on the "no-no" list either....however I did find this:

For me, I limit nitrate/nitrite foods because they can give me headaches (red wine) and make my nose stuffy.

Olives are not really eaten naturally either but have so many health benefits that not many will say to avoid them. Human haven't ate "all raw" for a long time so there is a pretty good chance we have enzymes or whatever to digest it right.

Coffee does have some benefits to it, though it could just be that all of the Paleo/Primal authors are addicted to it as well It will clean your liver. Some say Espresso is better than drip coffee because you get less of the "bad stuff" but I don't know how true that really is. However I smiled when I heard it since I prefer espresso

Oh, the difference, from what I can tell.. is that Primal is dairy friendly or at least less against dairy than Paleo. I have a European background so I figure I could handle some dairy. Cheese is my best "quick snack" since it fills quickly with small amounts. I also like yogurt a lot and eat it pretty regularly. I do like Kraut though so I could cut out yogurt and still have probiodics. I have been probiodic obsessed lately and if its anyway to overdose (not counting pills or powders, so I am not completely nuts) then I'll probably do it, ha. I have been doing Belly Shots, Kraut, and Yogurt. Though I'm sure I'd have to drop the belly shots for the challenge (the only thing I payed attention to was the "no sugar added," line.

I am still watching debating on if I will join you for October

I think I will be able to because my cheese consumption is down lately. I eat extremely clean now, no sweeteners (sugar, stevia, honey, agave, aspartame, sucralose, etc.) no caffine, no alcohol, no soy, low carb.

I don't think it is necessary for me to give up cheese but I think I could give it a go for one month.
