This is my first post so I thank you for your patience Right now I am pretty much on a paleo diet I don't eat bread, milk or sugars. But I do not eat a lot of meat. Maybe once a day every other day... So I recently (the past 9 months) quit my... (more)

I'm writing to discern if it's normal for my heart to do this. I've bought ketosis sticks and pee on them frequently, and have been in ketosis for about five weeks now. My energy level is more or less constant throughout the day, but if I eat a... (more)

I am 5'2" and 110 lbs. My eating this past week has been ravenous and resulted in some binges and I think it may have been because of restrictions in nuts, fruit, and starches. But, I am also wondering if my leptin is messed up again or my brain... (more)

I finally got around to buying a glucose meter and I have been playing around with it lately, and it seems like my blood sugar jumps all over the place. I tested yesterday morning after an overnight fast, and my blood sugar was 92, I then ate a... (more)

Endotoxins (aka lipopolysaccharides) are part of the membrane of gram negative bacteria and they have some toxic effects in the body. I've been hearing a new pro-vegan argument that animal products tend to have more endotoxins than plants and this... (more)

Could you have a food allergy where the only symptom is being exhausted? I eat a lot of eggs --free range soy free ones. Sometimes I get soooo tired about 1 hr later. Eggs do not cause me any stomach issues, I just get tired. It happens... (more)
I'm looking for what clean, easily digestible food I can keep in my car trunk for times I can't get to fresh food. I haven't really found perfect solutions for any of the macro-nutrients, but what I've got so far is: PROTEIN: Canned mackerel,... (more)
If you eat about an hour before going to bed, does that food digest less. Because Ive heard people say they feel like the food they eat after a party seems to feel like its still there the next morning. When this happens, should I wait a few hours... (more)
