    I've been looking for a protein powder that's paleo-friendly. Wasn't really expecting to find anything, but finally ran across this.

    Anyone here used it? If so, what's you're experience with it? All the reviews on amazon are great.

    I already eat 3-6 eggs daily (usually 3, sometimes another 3 as a snack), so I already get plenty of protein from eggs. The red meat thing is my biggest concern due to the inflammatory factor, but I only intend on taking it as a pre- and post-workout protein boost. Even at $70, that's still cheaper than $15/meal after every workout...not to mention all the soy with that meal (I eat at Veggie Grill with a friend after workouts).

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidYou won't consume whey or casein?
    Milk byproducts have a higher inflammatory factor than red meat. Cutting all milk products out of my diet was the final difference between having the "dad bod" and having abs.

    So, wait. Let me just be clear. Aren't you the one that has bragged about being drunk on numerous occasions on realjock? So, do you still drink or did you stop that as well? Because if I'm not mistaken alcoholic beverages are highly inflammatory.
    Let's just say I'm very choosy about which inflammatory materials I'll consume more than a couple times a month. icon_wink.gif

    Not all dairy products are created equal. Fermented foods are MUCH easier to digest. Kefir is delicious, easy to digest and has 44 gm of protein in a quart.
    I fail to see how something as heavily processed as chocolate flavored beef powder can be good for you. I am pretty sure it's not filet mignon either. More like intestines and boiled bones. And "hydrolyzed to release more peptides" is code for "predigested with an alkaline bath".

    Thank you for that info! That's the kind of stuff I was wondering but am too lazy to research. icon_lol.gif

    There is a paleo protein bar out that uses real meat. Keep in mind that processed food is not considered ....real or natural. Your supposed to go out and kill your turkey!

    Actually, many grocery stores do the rotisserie chicken and turkey and it's great with a salad or just the meat.

    I only eat fresh! No bread, no refined sugar, no dairy, no processed foods. I even make my own sugar free (processed refined white) salad dressings....

    "Eat real food, not too much, mostly plants" is the best 'rule' for what to eat. Even soy protein when fermented in the form of tempeh is easy on the system. And no, the phytoestrogens won't make you grow tits. Your liver will denature them. Everything you eat goes to your liver first. It's environmentally unsustainable for all of us to keep eating as much meat as we do. And probably bad for you as well.

    Anything but SOY!! It's out of the question (for me anyway)! It's processed and not a food of the cave man. I don't care what anyone of you think. It lowers testosterone.

    Garbage! Go Ahead, eat them and find out if your dick shrivels up. I have read more negative about soy products than I have good. SO why bother with it?? It's a man cultivated crop and most have been genetically modified. #NOTHANKS

    I'm just wondering about some of these "back to nature" diets - paleo, raw food et.c. As far as I know, not many cave men lived past 30... maybe their diet had something to do with that.

    Life span went down with the transition from hunter/gatherer to farmer. Teeth and bones became weaker. But calorie amount went up, they were able to bred more often because they didn't have to be nomadic (too many babies would be a problem for nomads), and famines became less common because they could store grain for a full year.

    Or, maybe it had more to do with greater infant mortality, more violence, and people back then often dying from injuries and illnesses that are easily treated today.

    Well I am past 30. Most of them probably died due to hunting accidents or maybe even killed by a wild animal. The aging process is slowed considerably when you eat foods that are rich in fiber, good lean meats, vegetables and some fruits. I have eliminated all refined sugar, wheat products, processed foods and I have never felt better. You tell me?
