Hey all. First time asking a question here. I've toyed with Paleo over the course of the last 9 months and done two full rounds of the Whole30 program, which I love and is great for my body (I'm planning a third round for the end of... (more)

I find myself having trouble getting enough calories. I know in the paleo community alot of calories typically come from fats. I have problems with my pancreas and a "high" fat diet causes me to get symptoms of pancreatitis. I currently am eating... (more)

Other than the desirable and frothy texture that resuts in using a blender, what difference does blending coconut oil or just stirring it in do? My goals are to supress my appetite until lunch time for weight loss.
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 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.
Hi, quick background: I'm 19 years old, weigh 130 pounds (slightly underweight). Over the last year and a half I've been closely examining my health and trying to get into proper shape. Back in mid 2013 my eating was super disorderly, I was under... (more)
Hi, I can't stand the taste of coconut oil in my dishes, so I use lard and ghee, but for sweet recipes, it just doesn't taste right. I have some refined coconut oil, but I don't know if it's still beneficial. It's not deodorized or... (more)
refined coconut oil has the same benefits as unrefined coconut oil , it has the same MCT amount of unrefined coconut oil . i use refined coconut oil in cooking.
I am having issues with carbs, I feel like maybe something is missing from my diet or something is going on. I started a Primal/Paleo diet exactly a month ago because I have PCOS and possibly insulin resistance. I did develop mild gestational... (more)
I have allergic reactions to high tyramine/histamine foods, vegetables, nightshades, peppers and eggs, I can't go back to high carb diet, I tried it a few days and I suffered headaches, depression, low appetite, my Paleo template right now... (more)
Can you tolerate any liver? Chicken liver? Might be good to try that and any other offal since you aren't tolerating any veggies. The offal can provide some of the vitamins you would get from fruits and veggies.
I was in a Paleo VLC keto diet for 7 weeks. It didn???t worked. After each meal I would feel lethargic. ironically I felt great while fasting. One day I did fasting for 24 hours and I had a lot of energy, but after eating 6oz of beef liver meat... (more)
On several occasions I have tried MCT oil and experienced sharp stomach pains between 12 and 24 hours after ingestion. On the first occasion, I tried 1 tsp. straight-up in the evening, without food. The next day (about 12 hours later) I had a... (more)
My daughter and I both experienced pretty bad abdominal pain/ache with MCT oil, no matter how small the dose. (She was using in coffee, I was putting it in smoothies). We gave up on it and just have coconut oil instead.
When I eat saturated fats I rapidly start gaining fat, does anyone else experience this or know the mechanism behind it? Ii have tested it multiple times by cutting out sat fats and reintroducing them again, within one or two days of replacing... (more)
Which are the good ones and bad ones and why? I eat a lot of saturated fat. I get a mix of people telling me that's horrible, and a mix saying you need it for fuel etc. I add olive oil to all of my veggies and even meats sometimes so i get TONS... (more)
I am curious to know what oils or fats are normally used in your country. This is my take from Spain, my country of origin: -Olive and sunflower oil are the commonest fats to cook with. Some people reserve olive oil for salads only, not... (more)
So, I've been eating more nuts and seeds than usual and don't want my skin to react...should I up my omega 3s to counteract it? I'm going to immediately stop eating so many. I just hadn't eaten them in so long and went crazy! I was just... (more)
Instead of the sweet tooth thing many people have, I feel that I have a "Savory Tooth" where I can't stop eating excessive amounts of fatty foods. When I began paleo, 2.5 years ago I transitioned from eating nothing but peanut products, canola... (more)
hey everyone I have a question. My question is I basically only consume coconut oil as my main fat source, along side the natural fat occurring in eggs, and tilapia.(I consume a lot of eggs about 10 eggs a day, with 2-4 egg whites. But eggs... (more)
I raise chickens, so it's not uncommon for me to have 4-6 eggs every day..sometimes just the whites, but I love them whole and hard boiled, too. I could eat avocado with every meal, but I know that's a lot of fat. I'm just coming off of a 3-day... (more)
What oil or fats would you recommend for dressings, mashed potatoes, and sauces to someone who cannot have coconut oil or any dairy (including ghee)? Avocado oil? Inexpensive (or about the same price as coconut oil or ghee) is a big plus.
Olive oil for everything. It's good for cooking, don't believe those who say otherwise. Of course, you have to like the flavor of it, which may be a challenge.
If I workout in the mornings around 8am, can I have a protein shake post workout with no carbs.. Eat fats and protein for lunch, then throw in carbs with my dinner? My other question is if Im eating my carbs for dinner do I lower my fat intake... (more)
Looking for some n=1 accounts of macadamia nut consumption. I know I've gotten carried away before and eaten quite a bit and felt icky but even then I'm not sure it was the nuts or the excess. In theory, they're an excellent food source. Also... (more)
My father (age 73) has been adapting an 80/20 paleo diet for the past 3 months or so. I've been preparing most of his meals, and he is all for it. Enjoying the food, not missing the grains, self-reported energy gains, and neighbors comment... (more)
My question is about how the timing of the micronutrients would be best... I mostly kept it like the first combination in the title, carbs a.m, fats p.m. But i thought about it today, and noticed that it may be more beneficial to turn the... (more)
So ive got this Bertolli olive oil today, that claims to be good for cooking, (until 220 C- thats also the reason why i bought it- for cooking!) which contains both, virgin and refined olive oil. Im not sure if this refined olive oil in... (more)
The anti inflammatory diets tend toward cutting back on some of the saturated fats and red meat. Part of the reason I went with paleo eating is to work on migraines and joint pain and I have done pretty well on the path. Just wondering if dropping... (more)
Paleo is an anti-inflammatory diet as it cuts out the biggest sources of inflammation: n-6 fats, excessive refined carbohydrates, and the worst for many of us: grains (and also dairy if/while poorly tolerated). It emphasises nutrient dense foods... (more)
