I have a copy of the Paleo Diet book and it seems very similar to the O Nonnie diet.  I do really well on a "paleo" diet.  Anyone else?  My only concern with the Paleo Diet is that it promotes this way of eating as beneficial for EVERYBODY when in reality its probably not....  But I love its emphasis on grass-fed meats and LOADS of vegetables.

It really advocates avoiding even beneficial starchy vegetables.  Instead, filling up with leafy greens, avocados etc.  Its very O Nonnie friendly ;)

Hi igbogirl,
I have read the book and have a copy around here.  It seems very healthy, but I have such
a hard time giving up things like brown rice.  But I agree that veggies and grass fed beef are
wonderful.  I have started buying ground grass fed beef at Trader Joes nearby, and I love it.
I have bought ground buffalo, but one of my sons is saddened by the thought of it, so I stopped
getting it.  Kids are funny, but I just want them to eat good food....Anyway, one of the reasons
I had read about Paleo was because it seems to help some people with acne, but I believe the
btd does also.  We have some poor skin on my side and some of my sons have had it really
badly, so I have done lots of research.  Getting them to eat right is touch and go.  But what I cook
here I can control....

If your conscience wouldn't bother you, just buy it and don't tell him. I can't tell the difference. :-)  Well except that buffalo is leaner.

mmmmmmmmmmmmm.............I love ground buffalo, makes the best meatloaf.  Why don't you not call it buffalo, instead call it bison

Depending on how old her son is, I wonder if she could get that by him. Not telling him....................well, I know that seems sneaky, but I do it to my DH all the time. I want him to eat well and if I can sneak some beneficials in his food w/o him knowing it, so be it.  ;D

If you do ok on brown rice, no need to give it up!  My system just seems to be very neanderthal.  I've learned that the closer to Paleo I eat, the better I feel

Hopefully he’ll grow out of the non-buffalo eating stage soon.  My son went through a cow loving stage.  We even “adopted” a cow.  We got its picture and cheese from it, etc.  This was long before the BTD and when we went to McDonalds he always ordered chicken nuggets.  Many years later after reading ER4YT, I discovered that plus corn-on-the cob probably contributed to his reoccurring ear infections.  He eventually grew out of his aversion to eating beef when he was a teenager and all his friends ate hamburgers.  Maybe if some of your son’s friends thought it was cool (or whatever word they use today), then he’d eat it.  At least you are aware of his BTD requirements and can steer him away from bad replacements in the mean time.  Unlike dummy me who won’t eat chicken herself because of stomach upset.  I never put 2 + 2 together to realize it was genetic. ::)

Hola,

This is my first visit to the neighborhood. You all seem like a lively bunch!

I'm coming from a mostly paleo diet with gobs and gobs of fat. While tasty, it also put me in a bad way. Fatty foods, even beneficials like olive oil, make me lethargic. An animal fat or peanut butter binge leaves my face very greasy. Eggs and whole nuts seem to have no effect.

Could this be caused by low levels of intestinal alkaline phosphatase? I'm an ab non-secretor.

Thanks,

Ricardo (who already misses beer and bratwurst)

welcome!
I believe you have answered your own questions pretty successfully!

have you checked typebase for the most updated food values?
http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/typeindexer.htm

perhaps also knowing your subtype will help you fine tune a bit further.

ricardo,

You hit the nail directly on the head.  

And don't worry, as your brain and body starts to more confidently make the connection between eating bad and feeling bad, your food preferences will genuinely change away from beer and bratwurst.

Welcome Ricardo (and fellow nonnie) -

I know when I first started the BTD I got all hung up over what I was giving up.  My new best friend became substitution.  I looked at everything in the stores instead of only what I was used to buying and found a whole other world of healthy foods.  Who knew?????

Maybe just take one or two avoids a week and concentrate on finding a yummy beneficial to replace them.  You'll get the hang of it in no time!  ;D

Welcome to the table Ricardo.  This is probably the "most fun spot" on the the boards.  These guys are the bomb!!!   I would love to read more of the posts Tomatilla writes, but I have a hard time keeping up with her (not her fault I am rather dyslexic sp?).  I don't think there is a better bunch than the nonnies for information......These are the people that help me keep going when I have questions!
