HI - I have started the Paleo Diet as a way to help manage some AI and leaky gut/stomach issues (bloating etc). however they have created some new issues. I was previously vegetarian (who never liked or ate legumes), and introduced fish and... (more)
I try to eat a varied diet but find sticking to a few micronutrient rich staples a really good base to start from, so i was wondering what your staple foods are? I'll start by sharing mine which are simply Mackerel, Potatoes & Bananas! I find... (more)
hi, I've been 90% paleo for over a year now and have recently started weight training but am having trouble losing the fat in my abdomen/thighs. I do 20-30 interval cardio , then weights. I sometimes use fitness pal and am wondering what ratios... (more)
What brand? How long until you noticed results? Do you have to keep taking them to stay clear? Notice any other benefits using probiotics as an exclusive acne treatment?
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.
I've been doing a low carb diet successfully for a few years now, and feeling great. I was able to get the diet working really well and slim down with lots of energy, minimal toxins, and loads of micro nutrients. (at ~40-90g total carbs per day,... (more)
I eat highly nutritiously. I include a vegan vitamin d3 spray and b12 sup.
I am confused. All of the recipes that call for almond flour or other kinds of nut flour... I have read on different sites on the computer that you can make your own almond flour etc. But in your article on lectins you say that we need to limit... (more)
Hi, I'd like to strictly follow the PHD suggestions and one of these is that it would be better to eat 3 egg yolks per day, preferably raw. I'm thinking to drink them as egg yolk powder because it's easier to store and I prefer not to eat the egg... (more)
I guess I should have asked this question before I wrote a book about my success with it...but does anyone in the paleo community care for this? I mean we are so picky about what we eat but not the chemicals we put in our mouths? If this is... (more)
I realize this is the millionth acne thread and I apologize if it's redundant. Just looking for some input. I have struggled with adult acne for a number of years and it used to be primarily mild to moderate cysts in the hormonal region. It... (more)

So, sauerkraut has, according to testing carried out by Dr. Mercola, a very high probiotic content (see links). My question is if these beneficial bacteria really survive to where they are supposed to go? I know that probiotic capsules such as... (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.
Corn is bad?? I thought it was a veggie bacon. Should I do away with it altogether since it's in the grey area?(I can live without it)but this nitrite/nitrate nonsense has my head spinning. eggs. How much is too much eggs? I'm kind of an egg... (more)
I don't know what I'm doing wrong but I'm not losing any weight at all. I'm starving at night. Super frustrated. Maybe too much fruit with my meals. I actually binged tonight on breakfast egg muffins I premade for the week and a larabar. Help!! My... (more)
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.
No brand names please.
Liquid or solid depends on the temperature. What you want though is UNPROCESSED coconut oil, i.e. it should say "virgin", "raw", and preferably also be certified as organic. Processed coconut oil is as poisonous as margarine.
