    I would guess that vitamin K2 is in the ADEK vitamin, right?

    Right re: Primal v. Paleo and what you call it.
  3. Right, I'd agree with that...and of course there are things on the Whole 30 list that can interact with medications. Like, grapefruit--I can't eat it, no matter how great it might be, because of medication interactions.

    CFers! Yay! Well I guess I don't technically "count" anymore, because I'm a transplant recipient (9+ years)! But I would THINK most of this stuff would be great for CF people. I would bring it up with the dietician in clinic, because, as we know, we need waaaayyyy more calories than the general population. Of course the problem is: what do you WANT to eat, right? I remember so many days where I didn't want to eat anything at all. One caveat, I think--the dairy stuff. Since we're so prone to osteoporosis (and this is also common post transplant), I would definitely keep cheese/dairy/ice cream/ full fat dairy around. I've done that and I have zero bone problems. None. Nada. Zilch. I know that other paleo diets (like Mark's Daily Apple) let you keep full-fat dairy. So since we're all about the fat bandwagon, I'd say that this is probably the one area where we might want to "off-road", so to speak? Especially since so many meds are hard on the stomach and it's suggested that they be taken with food or milk? FYI: I'm 32, late diagnosis at the age of 11.
