I ask mainly because If I could find some sort of carbohydrate to eat (apples are to voluminious and bananas hurt my digestive track when I exceed 3 in a short period of time) I could modify my diet to fit, but as it stands I can't find a adequate substitute. (I could also start a general paleo thread if that would be better)
Overeating carbs basically get converted to pure sugar in the body, messing up insulin levels and causing a whole battery of other health problems including heart disease.

Paleo eating isn't anti-carb so to speak. You certainly can eat sensible carbs such as veggies and fruits. it just promotes a more healthy eating lifestyle based on real science and human history.

Check out some of the videos in the "Low Carbs No Energy" thread for more info.

this is very fascinating to me, I have just spent my entire morning watching those videos. I think I am going to purchase the book The Paleo Solution by Rob Wolff just to get that perspective also.

Anyways how about chicken thighs or wings??

I love chicken

Skin to win!

From what I've read, organs, bone broths and skin are extremely good choices. Organs are much more nutritionally dense than muscle.

Check out the book, Good Calories, Bad Calories too. A must read.

may have been already said, peanuts are a legume too. Cashews can be poisonous raw, but roasted they sure taste good.

If there is a Costco near you, you can pick up a large jar of Almond butter cheap. You can get smaller jars at Walmart and most groceries, watch for sales as it is a bit pricey. You can also make your own with a good food processor.

I will have to rethink my peanut butter sludge. I prefer Almond butter, but price usually gets me.

Thinner and milder in taste then peanut butter. It is great for making sludge, I am not as fond of it for sandwiches. I only use it and PB for sludge these days. Chocolate protein, 2 tbl spoons of nut butter and a little water or heavy cream. mix well and eat. It is my evening snack.
