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)
Alot of things could be specific for you yes, hormones is one of them.Too high sustained carb intake could be another, but as it sounds like you are pretty active I wouldn't worry too much about it unless you have reasons to suspect otherwise.And... (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)
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'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?
My friend suggested I make a Bacon explosion: 2 pounds bacon, thick sliced 2 pounds sausage (italian, breakfast, sage. Whichever you prefer) 1 cup cheddar cheese (finely shredded) 2 whole green onions (thinly sliced) 4 cloves garlic (minced) 1... (more)

Anyone got any suggestions for a fat for cooking that has balanced sat/mono/polys (1/3, 1/3, 1/3) and balanced omegas as well (2:1 omega 6 to 3)? (or at least something with roughly even mono/sat proportions, and semi-reasonable omega balance, so... (more)
Caveman and I have been working on a ranch dressing substitute (just needs to be creamy and good not necessarily a copy of ranch). We found that blending avocado, olive oil, a touch of heavy cream and spices turns out DELICIOUS. I was thinking... (more)
I just finished a 30 day challenge on Paleo and made it through unscathed. I feel good, skin looks good, and I dropped a few pounds. Even though my husband and I told ourselves we could "cheat" when we finished the 30 days, I really don't want... (more)
For years I had a peculiar reaction to salmon: I threw up the oil. Just the oil. Every time. In the past several years, I have been able to greatly reduce this by only eating wild salmon, which makes me think that it was the oil in the farmed... (more)
Olive oil has some PUFAS, which degrade rather quickly. Most people don't seem to know this and they buy olive oil in clear containers and don't bother shielding it from the light. A properly stored cold pressed olive oil is a world away from the... (more)
It's really chewy, and kind of gross, but it is fat... Should I eat it? Am I wasting a good source of fat by chopping off the grizzle on the edge of the meat?
If it is animal, you can eat it. If it is tough, get it into small enough pieces and then do as the Inuit (Stephanson, Fat of the Land) did- roll around in your mouth a few times for flavor and then just swallow it.
I saw tubs of coconut oil going really cheap the other day. I'm pretty sure it is refined, but not hydrogenated. As it's cheaper than the homemade ghee I've been using, I thought I would buy some. I have two questions though: Is refined coconut... (more)
Fascinating how two people can get such radically different results! Today's lipid panels for your perusal. First, let's recap what the numbers "should be": HDL: 60 or higher LDL: 60 or lower Triglycerides: 60 or lower And the ratios between... (more)
That's more like two questions in one. Paleo followers generally suggest that animal oils should replace vegetable oils in the diet. As for the reasons, as I currently understand them: - High temperatures are used to extract vegetable oils -... (more)
You missed that they are high in omega-6 fatty acids, which are blamed for many many inflammatory problems from heart disease to bone loss. You get enough of these from meat that you definitely don't need more in the form of vegetable oil.... (more)
