Paleo-Astro

Filed in ASTROLOGY, SUN SIGNS

One Million Years BC

Paleo-eating (aka Neanderthin) Paleo-Fitness…Paleolithic living has been huge ever since Pluto went into Capricorn.

Atkins & Raw now seem so pre-Pluto-in-Cap.

The basic premise of the Paleo-peeps is that our bodies don’t know it’s 2011. They think we’re still one million years bc or whatever it was and being fit by running from mammoths all day long, eating raw bison & nuts-berries etc.

Back then there were no desk jobs, no cheese, no wine, no jelly snakes in packets to scoff when pre-menstrual.

So a whole host of modern illnesses can be pinged back to us not being Paleo enough. I get it. It’s logical. Mark Sisson’s Daily Apple site is a genius example of the genre. Super-hard to do paleo-veggo though i’m trying.  Interestingly; both Paleo and Vegans loathe dairy.

My questions:

(1) When is someone going to adapt Neanderthin/Paleo Diet/Primal Blueprint type thinking and do a Paleo Love Guide? It would be very now.

(2) Have any of you tried/being doing Paleo? If so, how have you found it? My theory is that Capricorns really do love it.

(3) How do you think the various Sun Signs would have gone down in Paleo times?  Scorps as shamans? An Aqua inventing the Wheel but Capricorn scoring the marketing rights?

Paleo doesn’t work for this virgo, I can handle grains just fine but lots of meat? nope, makes my stomach angry. Eat huge amounts of veggies but also fruit and dairy and then a lot of whole grains, beans and some nuts and fish and once in a blue moon some chicken. And a lot of chocolate obviously. Leo’s and aries seem to do paleo well, but most people i know, regardless of sign stop after a few months and go back to grains.

Quite a bit of research is available now on how periods of starvation actually give longevity. There is nothing else apparently that can guarantee a longer life than these stints of starvation. Studies were done on prisoners of war, holocaust victims etc. Apparently the starvation resets the body clock to ‘slow’ apparently giving an extra 10 or 15 years over the norm. It makes sense to me that eating less, a lot less, is quite good for your body. I went thru a period in my life when I was eating only one meal a day and at the time… Read more »

ok 3rd and final message. dL how did you deal with working / periods where you had to think / focus, and hunger? i’m guessing an early-lunch type arrangement would be best, lots of protein and fibre to sustain. atm i am so busy and eating less as a result, but by end of class at ~6pm i am low blood sugar and a tad strung out. (maybe a decent meal at brekky wld help)

I wasn’t working at the time , living in a hut in the bush, not sure if I could have been running around in the city and pulled it off. I would eat at about 2pm usually lots of rice, beans, etc. with little fruit snacks morning, late evening. I was writing a bit and meditating a lot.

But seriously, whenever I’ve gotten back into shape it was by eating in moderation and activity. Nothing special there. I come from a culture that’s plant and grain based so giving up carbs is a foreign concept to me….I’ve never needed to as long as I wasn’t sedentary.

No diets for me, been there done that. If I want to shape up I excessive. But I do try my best to have meals and snacks that are high in protein. Like a waffle for breakfast will wear off fast, but a waffle with PB on it will last on me longer. I don’t eat this way for my tummy, I eat this way cause it’s better for my brain power. And I eat everything else too I don’t avoid eating carbs, fruit, veggies, dessert. They just are not my highest food priority. But part of a balanced diet.… Read more »

I suspect a lot of this buzz about Paleo-diet will be short term. I even call it faux-Paleo. Because to be true Paleo you have to live the lifestyle… that is…. get rid of your toilet and squat to do #1 and #2. Our bodies haven’t evolved to use toilets. …start wearing very little clothing. Clothing blocks your sunshine to get Vitamin D. Back in the old days, there were no Vitamin D fortified foods and very few foods have vitamin D in them. 30 min a day of sun on just your arms is not enough. —See if your… Read more »

Yeah, I’ve been trying the Gabriel method which goes: our bodies only understand 1) Freezing 2) Starving or 3) Being eaten. So the trick is to convince your body that it is advantageous to be thin as there are marauding cave lions about, so that no matter how much food you stuff in your gob, you won’t add weight. But I haven’t been doing too well, working on other stuff more. Also, my therapist has kind of developed her own theories re: childrearing. That is, men cannot raise children properly: Their brains are hardwired to go mammoth hunting in groups… Read more »

Just be glad it wasn’t her nipples ! (I had that done when I was 25 – Mum – horrified, but also curious. It REALLY hurts !!!!!!Not recommended :P)

I wouldn’t worry about it. Nose piercing is so mainstream now esp the kind that is the side of the nose rather than the septum. Besides, it’s an easy thing to disguise with jobs and what not. She’ll probably grow out of it anyways.

Check out the book “Wild Fermentation” – most things (including dead goats, apparently) – ferment if given the opportunity, due to naturally occurring yeasts.

Chardonnay ? Probably not. Fermented anything else ? Definitely. Plus a truly mind-bending array of psychedelics….

From a Paleo diet perspective, red wine is OK. Dry white wine is quite low in carbs, as is champers. Just forgo the beer, cider (sob!) and Reisling.

Hashimotos is common after giving birth ? My wife had issues after no.3 but was told it would just get better, that was 8 years ago and just recently her blood tests were totally normal for the first time since the birth. Funnily enough she had no symptoms other than a cracker allergic/hives outbreak a few months after the birth. Turns out it gave her an allergy to aspirin?

ooow, yes, aspirin as in Salicylic acid the active ingredient is in lots of yummy things, mangoes, peaches, etc.. we are pretty sure now though that the since the thyroid antibodies are normal that the salicylic allergy may be gone.

I’ve just started ‘going paleo’ in an attempt to curb allergies and improve overall health, using Mark Sisson’s ‘Primal Blueprint’ as, well, a blueprint … or maybe more of a rough guide. The coffee/chocolate cravings were B-A-D today, so reading this picked me right up – now I feel like I’m totally on trend with Pluto in Capricorn/building a new era type vibe.

And hey, if following a Neanderthin diet results in being able to strut around in a kangaroo fur bikini with hot looking cavemen – I’m all for it!

Same. I thought he was checking them out too & thinking how can she store so much fat in there on this frickin diet, is one of them bigger than the other, or maybe just phwoar.

Big protein and veg eater here! Can only do carbs when they’re wholegrain, fruit sends me fruitbat crazy. Went veg in the past, and also went vegan…major unwellness. Different reasons: political, health. Decided if i eat meat should be prepared to hunt, but public outcry prevents me from spearing small dogs and plump babies in parks and streets. When i (seldom) eat dairy it’s got to be whole… with the cream. My meat always has fat. I’m lean and muscular by nature. I trust my tongue and go by taste and craving.

I naturally gravitate to the paleo diet, tho I never diet per say. I do however get seriously into dairy just after a breakup or when love gets v confusing. I’ve been known to consume Ben & Jerrys vanilla divine ice-cream (only 100ml), plus macadamia & cranberry cheese on crackers & a have a heart all in the same 24 hrs, followed by severe stomach cramps and diarrhea with regret. This I do but maybe once a year or less. But it’s telling me dairy is evil. And then I smoke again for about a packet of cigs and looking… Read more »

Dairy is hard to quit because it contains casomorphine in it. It’s a painkiller. You are self-medicating for pain. That’s why no one reaches for celery sticks when they break up.

so what is paleo diet? feast or famine? lots of meat raw or cooked? hunting and gathering of seeds, berries and some leafy things? pray do tell, I dont know my ancient history, obviously. I think if we even had half the amount of physical exertion in our daily lives of someone who lived 200years ago or more, we would be fitter, however we may die younger, not have teeth, but still fitter.

Stoked! Just answered my own question without trying. Was reading my Australian guide to natural therapies because I’ve fallen out of love with most recent novel, and came across the paleo diet… da da! 35% meat 65% plant food – of course there is the issue that ph post agricultural food is not as nutrient dense now. Well I’m excited with spring coming and getting back into more conscious eating. I have been fairly conscious this winter, but still go for the toast rather than whole foods for brekky. Im thinking soaked nuts, stewed fruit, and quinoa or millet. yum.… Read more »

I was hardcore paleo and bikram earlier this year. It was working out for me for a few months. Although I was never a big bread eater, I learned how much all grains were hurting me. I felt grounded, sensual, effortlessly happy, and hyper-aware without being manic like when I was vegan. My diet was mostly coconuts, green smoothies, fish, prawns, oysters, lamb, salad, nutritional yeast. I have lingering problems with my adrenals/thyroid/digestion that started a year ago after a high-stress period which won’t go away and so am back to highly digestible and cleansing raw food (energy soups, green… Read more »

Thyroid levels react to diet. Eg levels of iodine. If you are having thyroid issues you need to monitor the western way.
Acupuncture defn useful for the energy symptoms though.

I was eating a lot of dates, prunes, coconut juice (high in potassium) with no processed foods so I wasn’t getting enough salt on top of adrenal fatigue and low thyroid. I’ve been adding celtic sea salt to my water and food and feeling better already. I feel like a chemistry project! lol

I too have hashimotos DT (or I’m hypothyroid and they say that’s the reason)
Specialist told me years ago if the world comes to an end, just eat animal thyroids and you’ll be fine. I think that’s the closest you’ll get to homeopathics if you are hypo.

Shell is right. If you have thyroid problems you need them monitored properly. Go to a doctor, have a blood test, see what they say. It’s better to know. I was having problems with my thyroid (apparently it is common in women when they reach their 40’s). Now that my levels have evened themselves out with the help of thyroxine, my metabolism is chugging along quite nicely. And I don’t have to worry about what to eat. I just have to avoid most multi-vitamins as they usually have iodine. I had no luck with acupuncture. It was good old western… Read more »

Uber can prob add more to the acupuncture question. My thyroid is stable according to blood tests, but I get a bit zinging sometimes and acupuncture is good for that. I went hyper and then hypo and it feels the same. Thyroid issues are liver related in Chinese medicine I believe? I would not use it with the assumption it would fix my levels. Tinnitus is an potential warning bell (pun intended) to thyroid issues. No clinical proof they are related, but literature draws links. Chinese medicine too I think. Mine kicked in a year or so before the thyroid… Read more »
