My digestive system can't handle potatoes unless they are new (New potatoes have less starch and starch can be a problem for me). I have been eating new potatoes that are sold in jars but we will emigrating soon and I am a little worried that I won't be able to buy new potatoes in jars anymore so can anybody tell me how to store new potatoes in jars, please?

I think that was the problem in my case. During my late 30s I started having problems with spicy foods like curries (It's almost the national dish in the UK these days ) and then shortly after I started having problems with other foods as well. I think my body was worn out from tolerating certain foods for so many years and wasn't able to take anymore.

Somebody that needs lots of carbs to get through a workout, may be doing the wrong kind of workout. Workouts tend to be unnatural. People that live in remote parts of the world, don't need to load up on carbs because they are about to perform a certain task or because they just finished a certain task.
Ask yourself, are you training to be a top athlete or are you training to be be fit and healthy? The two are not always the same.

The diet rules are pretty simple. Allowed foods are eggs, meat, fish, nuts, seeds, fruit and non starchy veg.
Nowadays there are some people that say that dairy, rice and starchy veg are also paleo but I don't consider them paleo. When I started on paleo, about 7 years ago, they were not included and I still don't include them. I have no problem if people want to eat those things though.

I had a lot of problems with food allergies and intolerances in the past. Over the course of several years, I eliminated all the foods that were causing me problems. I ended up on a diet of eggs, meat, fish, nuts, seeds, fruit and non starchy veg. I didn't know what the paleo diet was but I followed a link to a paleo website one day and found that there were these people that had eliminated the same foods as I had and were eating the same foods that I was and that they called their diet "The Paleo Diet". I was amazed that my way of eating actually had a name.
I have made adjustments to it over the years. I eat a lot more fat than I did when I started, less protein and a lot less carbohydrates. It might not suit everyone but I have found that it suits me.

Thanks to whoever it was that fixed the images.

I have been working on a construction site recently where we have been building a typical (for this area) block and concrete house but one of the guys was designated to build a storage shed from pallets that was sided with long boards and then corrugated steel on the roof. I was looking at it and thinking the doorway looked pretty narrow. I saw another guy walk in and bash his shoulder on the door frame. This confirmed my suspicion. hehe. Anyway a few days later, the guy that built it and a couple of other guys had to carry a large generator across a couple of trenches and then up a recently made embankment of loose subsoil to stash the generator in the shed. It was a real struggle for them. Imagine how they felt when they finally got it to the door, only to find the generator wouldn't fit through it. lol

Stone can look fantastic. There are loads of sandstone houses here on Ibiza. I'm pretty sure that most of them would have been rendered and painted in the past though. There are also thousands of dry stone walls for boundries and hillside terracing. I have built some but it is very slow going even though I am an experienced bricklayer.

I've tried vegan, vegetarian, etc...

Me too. The propaganda was pretty convincing and I felt fantastic for the first few days. Eventually my health started deteriorating though.

I think you have the right idea with your "really pastured" animals. I doubt that any kind of supplements like omega 3 capsules etc can be better for us or even as good in the long run than eating properly fed animals and properly grown fruit and veg.
