Your skin is like a third kidney. It filters crap out. I say SLOW DOWN on the supps and pro/pre-biotics. There is such thing as too-much-of-a-good-thing, and you have too much of many 'good things'! Onions and artichokes are pre-biotics, so they... (more)

Are you getting enough zinc? Zinc can be harder to get enough of if you're only eating seafood unless you eat an oyster or two each day

If I am waking in the night hungry - and I mean really hungry! - does this mean I am not fat adapted? Should I get up and eat something? and, if so, what? or should I toughy it out in the hope that my body will get used to it and I won't wake up? (more)

Nut & alternative grain flours are totally icing on the proverbial paleo cake. Their only advantage is that they are gluten-free. If that's your primary concern, then go for it.

Does anyone have a good article or scientific study that proves gluten sensitivity is not a myth? I would love a link or reference I could give to the nay-sayers out there.    thank you!

Non-celiac gluten sensitivity doesn't have much if any scientific support. Certainly not to justify claims that some large segment of the population cannot eat it without problems.
