Modified Paleo

So I started Crossfit and paleo at the same time. 3 months later, I'm thinking about modifying my diet. I never needed to lose weight, so I question why I'm even doing paleo to begin with. To be fair, I think I have a slight gluten and lactose intolerance. What whole foods should I start adding back that are traditionally frowned upon on the paleo diet? I'm trying to get back up to 170 @ 5'9''. Currently, and for the past 3 months I've been between 155 and 159--obviously this is diet related.

I make all of my own food from scratch, if it's not already a whole food. So I want to start doing Sunday Italian dinners again with handmade whole grain pastas. That's a start, what else, brown rice and potatoes?

Re: Modified Paleo

Personally, and I will probably get flamed for this, I prefer white rice to brown. Brown rice contains phytic acid and other anti-nutrients, while white rice is basically just pure starch (like a potato). And if you're mixing protein, white rice, and vegetables at a meal, you need not really worry about the GI of the white rice as it's digestion will be significantly slowed by the protein, fiber, and fat in your meal. Nate Miyaki had a great article explaining this on T-Nation. If you do a google search, you should be able to find it easily.

Re: Modified Paleo

If you lost 15lbs on Paleo you just need to eat more, whether it's Paleo or non-Paleo food choices.

Plain oatmeal isn't a bad way to go for dense, non-gluten carbs. I've been doing 1-2 oats/whey/coconut milk shakes a day for the last month or so to get my calorie intake up and haven't had any issues with it.

Re: Modified Paleo

First,

"I think I am slightly gluten intolerant"

and then,

"I want to make pasta from scratch"



You are COMPLETELY missing the bus here

Chris, oats aren't a gluten grain. a) a lot of oat processing plants are contaminated, plus b) a percentage of celiacs crossreact with oats...but technically they're gluten free.

their storage protein = avenin, not gluten
