I have noticed whenever I drink kombucha, that I end up getting a bit of a headache afterwards. Any one know why this would be? I drink GT's Organic Raw so there is only 4 grams of sugar.

Possibly histamine intolerance.

@TamesBM That's not entirely true. see: http://www.fitocracy.com/knowledge/body-recomp-evolved-burn-fat-and-build-muscle-at-the-same-time/ And what you meant to say there is "To lose fat" not "To lose weight" - that's a key difference, as... (more)

Anyone know of anywhere you can get brief written summaries of popular paleo podcasts? Something with just the essential info, if you dont have the time or inclination to listen to the whole thing? Would such a service be of interest?

I go to my local Stew Leonard's and find a bag of in-house made sweet potato chips. The ingredients read: Fresh sweet potatoes, 100% pie soybean oil and salt. I was craving something crunchy. Is this ok or no?

No problem on the sweet potato chips, but problem on the soy oil.  That makes it fall under the crap-in-a-bag category. Find a different brand. Avoid: soy, corn, "vegetable", canola, cottonseed and other industrial seed oils.

AFAIK, it's called "Carb Backloading" - it works because you limit the amount of carbs to just one or two nights a week (2 nights apply only if you work out a lot, i.e. professional level).   If you start eating lots of carbs around the clock... (more)

It's a processed food, and likely the beneficial cholesterol in the yolks is now harmful oxidized cholesterol.  I wouldn't.  It's very easy to separate the yolks from the whites: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jqGTyqk0G50 (more)

Most bacteria die in the stomach. But some make the trip, specially those imbedded in the kraut. More will make it if the eater has low stomach acidity. They then go on to populate the intestine under favorable conditions.

I agree with Raydawg--eat more at meals--eat nutrient dense foods, plenty of natural fats.  And go to sleep if you're hungry.

Have you been exercising? I would cut out all of the fruit for 2-3 weeks and see how you stand then. You can substitute it with a non-starchy vegetable to help fill you up.
