I've been following paleo way of living for a little while now and believe it's absolutely the way to go. Just like any new beginner though I'm guessing, I just want to ensure this is the way to go. I understand Dr. Atkins died from hitting his... (more)
Atkins had an admitted heart condition of some sort. I don't remember the type, but it was something congenital not diet-related ... or that's what he said. What I've always been bothered by was his weight. It is claimed that he weighed 198 on... (more)

Hey folks :) actually I think I already know some stuff about dry skin and paleo, also that it can be worst before it becomes better. But, my skin is realy, realy bad. When I press my finger nail in the back of my hand for just a second,... (more)
I posted a few weeks ago about Duck Liver Pate and if I should be concerned about eating too much (basically the answer was: not at the amount I was eating). Well, I found some lamb heart at my local farmer's marker and made some lamb heart... (more)
I am a pretty healthy 23-year-old female. Throughout my life I have occasionally have chest pains when I try to breathe in... I don't have any cardiovascular issues that I know of, although I have a stressful job. Has anyone else experienced... (more)
Could anyone share some more light on this. I started Paleo because of immune-system problems and skin issue. They put on of those permeant retainer things in my mouth when I first got my braces out during my adolescent years. I specifically... (more)
Does anyone know if it's possible to catch a virus that effects your internal system? I've currently switched to grass fed beef, after I got an ultrasound that showed I might have some type of internal virus. I used to eat a lot of lean turkey... (more)

IMHO, In a closed system, things tend to break down over time. So whether we try to do little damage or a lot, we will always head to the ultimate end of our bodily lives... Check out Matts link.
Hi all, I bought some diced pig's heart today as I'm trying to get into offal more, but I'm not sure what the best way to cook it is. I have some nice pastured pork mince which I was going to make burgers out of - does anyone have any thoughts on... (more)
I am paleo 99% of the time, but on a day like today, sometimes dark chocolate is just too delicious to pass up! The past few times I have eaten it - we're talking 70-85% dark chocolate - my heart starts to race for about an hour afterwards. I feel... (more)
It's probably the caffeine/theobromine. It's not something a sensitive person would notice from white or milk chocolate probably, but it's quite concentrated in the darker versions.
Hey all- I bought a hardcore electric meat grinder from Amazon (one used for the BARF diet for pets, intended to grind both meat and bone) and have been putting it to use by buying beef hearts in bulk from my local grocery store. I prep the... (more)
Hi, I've been on paleo for about 10 days now. I was eating a whole food diet before this as I have an issue with candida/dysbiosis. Since going paleo I've noticed an odd sensation around my heart. IT doesn't seem to be palpitations, its definitely... (more)
Are you now eating something you have not eaten before, i.e. more nuts, shellfish/fish, etc? There may be some allergies, keep a food journal for a bit and see how you go. Possibly a better idea before you start supplementing straight away.
I am trying to figure out why my heart rate skyrockets even when doing a light jog. This has been happening more over the last year, where a jog at best in the past would get my heart rate up to the 140 bpm now it quickly goes to 165 or higher in... (more)
I would at least rule out electrolyte imbalance. Eat more salt, bone or beef broth and take a Magnesium chelate supplement. Bananas or avocados for potassium. More seafood.
Hey paleo peeps. Well I eat a lot of fat, especially saturated and monounsaturated. I've been using coconut oil to cook my meals and lately i've been experiencing very tight chest pains, mostly on the left and a little on the right. They come and... (more)

I have only tried organic grass-fed beef heart, which I love. I am having trouble finding any right now and have a chance to get pig heart instead. I have always assumed that it was better to get the heart of a ruminant like deer, goat, lamb and... (more)
I'm in my 3rd week on Paleo. I'm running about 85-90% of pure Paleo. I have eaten no grains, soy, or dairy. I have lost about 100 lbs. pre-Paleo and have about 120 to go. The first week I lost almost 5 lbs. (which for me and at my age is more than... (more)
Last night I had a racing heart leap up on me, while I was half asleep. Anxiety alerted me too it. Must have been somewhere around 120. I am also getting cramps. So I wondered about electrolytes. I have been salting my meals, but also drinking a... (more)
Its possible you need Magnesium. There are lots of threads on dosing and types. Also, how about stopping the Glutamine and see what happens (why are you taking it?) Good luck
So I am very interested in this whole Paleo thing. I have been eating grain-free for a few weeks now and just started going sugar-free (sooooo hard) but i wont give up dairy for a while if ever...but anyways, basically what i am wondering that i... (more)
Anyone have any good recipes for beef heart? I know some of it is based on how lean it is but the Fitday info is quite good and it is really tasty. I've fast fried it with yams and butter and I made Fajitas with it. Anyone have any info,... (more)
I have 300g of chicken hearts marinating, and was wondering what I could use the leftover marinade for? I was planning to braise the chicken hearts, and simmer them in the marinade itself along with extra red wine and some stock. Many sites say... (more)
Why not boil the marinade for two minutes (or longer to thicken it a bit) before simmering the braised chicken hearts?
