I find it interesting that most paleo and LC advocates vigorously maintain the position that high saturated fat consumption is harmless. In spite of the fact that lots of people continually pop up on this forum with high cholesterol levels,... (more)

I'm 20 years old,~68kg and 5"9. I eat paleo with the exception of butter and kefir (I'm lactose intolerant but neither of those seem to affect me) and occassionaly white potatoes instead of sweet potatoes. I'll eat a whole bar of 75% dark... (more)
I recently switched to grass/free range meat and bought grass fed meat from a local farm here in South Florida. What im wondering is if their animals are actually grass fed? I know that none of us can know unless we are there (or believe their... (more)
There's an old saying: "The solution to pollution is dilution". That got me thinking (or perhaps over-thinking which I have a tendency to do): If you constantly consumed a substance to which you were intolerant (e.g. nightshades or dairy), how... (more)
Conventional wisdom says yes, but time to time i've head otherwise in paleo circles but seen no evidence either way I went HFLC paleo but my cholesterol went out of control, in an attempt to get things back in order im cutting out pretty much all... (more)

Hey guys, I'm a 20 yr old female that recently started eating paleo (again). Right now I'm consuming approx. 1,200 calories per day; although, I'll admit, sometimes I consume closer to 1,000. I realize this is probably too little, but I'm... (more)
Hi everyone. I was hoping you could help me. I am addicted to junk and fast foods. I am trying to get into paleo but I cant seem to shake the junk or fast food. What do you suggest I can do that will help?
i eat turkey pretty regularly as my breakfast meat and am looking for a source of turkey parts (that i can mainly make ground out of, i'm assuming parts will be cheaper than pre-ground meat) that doesn't cost $10/lb. i am pretty sure the... (more)
Hello! I started paleo about 2 months ago and from all the information I read, I always thought paleo was about eating until you were satisfied as long as it was the right kind of food. Then I discovered ketosis and found out I need to limit... (more)
I just read the label on the whipped cream I bought from Costco and it contains mono-diglicerides which I just figured out can contain trans fats. Kinda angry atm. I was in the process of making my own but the canned stuff was so filling... (more)
I tend to be a little shy about using olive oil due omega 6 being about 9% so I worry I'll mess my 6n:3n ratio if I go over board. I tend use coconut oil more freely.
I've started the Whole30 last week and I haven't drank any milk, yogurt or even butter. But I'm using ghee. In the beggining, I tought it was the eggs that were causing the nauseas, that "vomit feeling' (I'm sorry if you have just pictured it).... (more)
If you want to continue using ghee, you could try using cultured ghee. Many people who are sensitive to regular ghee find they can handle the cultured stuff.
Has anyone seen the panorama documentary on the atkins? They concluded after giving people food until they were full as much as they could eat. They put fat lots of added fats in certain groups pf peoples food and not the other. Every time... (more)
Hey guys, Is it ok to eat the fat/rind that comes on pork/lamb chops? I find it the tastiest bit of the meat but am keen to learn if it is really ok to do so although i do keep it to a bare minimum!
Hey, I am a 5'5", 18 yr old girl around 135 lbs or so (approx no scale) who's been on the Paleo Diet since Lent. My q is I was wondering if I am not eating dairy, grains, legumes, refined sugar products, processed food, and NOW (since I've heard... (more)
I came from the LeanGains camp where you probably shouldn't be consuming anything above 10 or 15 calories during your fasting period. I've noticed a lot of people talk about using coffee, or coffee with MCT oil or butter, until they "break" their... (more)
I agree. I believe the real benefits of fasting come from the autophagy process. When you consume pure fat, even though it does not illicit an insulin response, it still provides useable exogeneous energy for your body, so it doesn't have to tap... (more)
I know some people have probably seen this addressed, but everything I searched for came up in bits and pieces that didn't provide a straight forward answer or good example. I started a paleo style diet, I say that because I maintained limited... (more)
Just wondering what the body does with far and how it handles it without carbs/insulin. Also would it make a difference if this fat was ingested after a 20 hour fast? Or if ingested with protein?
Thats basically it. We all know, add fat, lower the glycemic index of any carb. Thats why for some crazy reason, ice cream sugars are absorbed slower than starch in white bread (ie lower gi). How/why does this happen?
I have been tracking my macronutrients via con-o-meter. I am shooting for a ratio of 15:20:65(carbs:protein:fat). I can't seem to get my ratio of fat above my ratio of protein. Any suggestions?
Ketosis is when you have very low carb consumption and your body converts fat into ketones by your brain to use as energy, fat can't cross the blood brain barrier to be used as energy for the brain. Fat adapted means that you are able to burn fat... (more)
