Hey OP, I'm not flaming ya! Sorry if it comes off that way.

I'm glad you are enjoying a healthy diet and haven't bought into the fad aspect of it all. It's all about being healthy and finding what works for you. Back to your original question, in all my exploring I haven't come across places dedicated to that type of diet in the Triangle, but as others have said, you should have very good luck working with the menus that are available to you.c

You may want to try Kimbap, a new Korean restaurant at Seaboard Station near downtown Raleigh. Their food is purchased fresh from local farmers and fishermen. We went there a few weeks ago on a recommendation from a friend and the food was delicious...very fresh, very healthy, very tasty.

I've been eating "paleo-ish" for a little over a year now. I was not overweight and was very active (still am). I bike, run, stand up paddle, surf, etc. However, I lost about 20 lbs. in the first few months and still feel fantastic. All my times improved, climbs up the hills at Umstead Park were easier, etc. It was a pretty easy thing for me as I love veggies and meat. We use the grill quite often. Not a big deal to stop eating pasta (love spaghetti squash instead!), etc. Although I'm fairly sure my paleo ancestors probably didn't sit down in a patch of field greens and start picking salad. Not a lot of energy for the return on your time

I haven't found restaurants that specifically cater the paleo/primal lifestyle. However, I'm usually able to do fairly well when I eat out. Chipotle is an easy fast meal (salad bowl). Some of my favorite Mexican places like Dos Taquitos will do a great job with a special request. Easy to sub things like plantains for rice or beans. Or just order the Fajitas and don't wrap them up.

And again, I'm not a "fad" person. No $$ spent on books, DVD's, websites, conventions, etc. And you bet I'll have the occasional shake from Cook Out...hey, it's summer!

I guess that I'm very much like the paleo era feeders....I'm opportunistic. Can't pass a Sabrett hot dog stand without grabbing a few!
