I came across another thread, and people kept suggesting that the questioner eat fruit separately from other foods, and dont eat within an hour before or after eating it. WHY?! I like to eat berries with breakfast or lunch....if this is messing me... (more)
What ill side-effects would there be if I decided to cut fruit out of my diet completely? I eat about a kilo of mixed fresh vegetables each day, so I have other sources for, say, vitamin C.
None...you're good to go.
I know generally frozen fruit and vegetables are better than the "fresh" (but not so fresh) ones sitting out, but how about canned vs. frozen produce? Also, canned meat vs. frozen meat vs. "fresh" meat? Which one is a better option? (more)
I started eating paleo (or my version thereof) on a whim just about 3 weeks ago, and started feeling better in just about every way within a few days -- there's no question in my mind that this way of eating works for me and I'm sticking with it. ... (more)
I'm thinking of getting the Breville Juicer ($100) on Amazon. It is the #1 juicer on Amazon. If I got it, is there a cheap way of juicing? Also, does anyone have any book recommendations on juicing?
I believe that we are meant to eat more fruit/citrus over the summer. Perhaps even the way our body processes stuff is effected by the season so therefore fruit would be used in a beneficial way when its super hot out. Electrolyte balance or... (more)
I think what we're "meant to eat" needs to be adjusted slightly for those with significant amounts of fat to lose. Once you are healed and your body weight has stabilized you may very well be able to enjoy more fruit during the Summer but for now... (more)
My first introduction to paleo was through the work of Loren Cordain, who from what I remember advocated eating as much fruit as one liked as part of a plaeo diet, instead of grains or tubers. I'm guessing that wasn't the most popular idea,... (more)
I've been using fruit as my main carb source (and at least half my calories) for about 8 out of the past 9 years. I think fruit tolerance varies tremendously from person to person, but it's been my favorite approach out of anything I've tried so... (more)
I've seen quite a few posts here about fruit here, but none truly dedicated to the topic of which fruits have the best and worst nutritional profile. Taking everything into consideration such as vitamin, mineral, fiber content as well as glucose,... (more)
I think there might be a question on this issue, or at least it has been discussed in some other questions. I'm currently doing leangains-style approach with IF, and have a pretty decent "swing" in my carb intake: Rest days 100-120 grams, workout... (more)
I've noticed that if I eat a few handfuls of fresh grapes, I get a headache, upper muscle tension, and a feeling of anxiety. This seems pretty consistent with the response I have to the same amount of any type of sugar that's not consumed with fat... (more)
I don't know, but ever since I started eating paleo I don't feel the need to eat anything after dinner. Perhaps it's a sign that you are not eating enough earlier in the day if you are still hungry?
How is one able to best manage a salicylate sensitivity while being paleo? I know many fruits are high in salicylate, but does anyone have any tips or experience in any other regard?
I've just come across a fascinating page on how anti-oxidants found in plants/fruits may REALLY work: by increasing the bodys internal capacity to deal with plant-borne toxins (polyphenols, phytonutrients etc). Really emphasises the need to... (more)
I've been really stiff lately. I've also been cheating a lot. Almost daily. Anyhow, I've been unusually stiff, especially in my lower body. Anytime I get up from sitting or lying I'm really stiff, and it takes quite a bit of time to go away, if it... (more)
gluten causes inflamation, looks like the obvious answer to me. Bread makes my joints hurt too, so even as I eat the once in a while burger, I know I am going to hurt a little for a couple of days from it.
Possible Duplicate: Is a lot of fruit a problem? Ladies and gents im just curious as to whether fruit is allowed on the paleo diet? I am a huge lover of oranges, mangos, strawberries. Basically all fruits. I also love salad with plenty,... (more)
This is in my head because I spend all day with a toddler. Our pediatrician recommended raisins for iron. Why not grapes? I've noticed other dried fruits saying they were high in iron too on the package. I'm confused. Update: 2 years later,... (more)
New to paleo, but working out a lot. I eat four portions of fruit each day and I'd like to know if its too much in view of the fact that I don't need to lose weight at all. I also don't use supplements even though for now I don't have access to... (more)
Once a day, once a week, once a month, once a year? At what level do you think the diet becomes cariogenic long term? My main goal is to not have to visit a dental office ever again. HG seem to do well on different frequencies of honey and... (more)
Let me preface this question by saying I'm a huge fan of fruit. I eat a fair amount on a daily basis to no apparent ill effect, and I think fruit has been shown to be healthy and safe. I always see this idea repeated: the fiber in fruit slows the... (more)
Realizing more and more that I do better on more carbs than less - that is, I do better with ~100-150 grams per day than I do on less than 50 grams per day. When I am at less than 50, it is typically just random carbs here and there - veggies,... (more)
I've done experiments with taking fruit in and out of my diet for a while now. I discovered that when I'm low carb or zero carb I always look thinner and feel better. Is this the tell tale sign that I have insulin senstivity?
I'm the same way...when the only carbs I eat are low sugar veggies, I look and feel better in every way...I inevitably slip into eating some fruit in the summer, and then usually add some nuts, before I know what hit me, I'm baking cookies with... (more)
Having no fruit and lowering/regulating your insulin and changing to fat for what your body primarily runs off of, has been a health discovery, but what is the definition of no fruit/no sugar, and if one were primal, you'd probably be eating a lot... (more)
I eat blueberries, strawberries, raspberries...in small amounts. A handful in the morning. If I am craving ice cream, I put a handful( 1/4 cup) in a bowl and pour a couple tablespoons of heavy cream on them,.
Hi guys, I'd say I'm about 75% strict paleo, with rare lapses of bread/pasta or a random sugary dessert (you know you're pretty paleo when you have the random pasta-in-a-restaurant dish and have some bad effects after it) What I find myself... (more)
