I still suffer from swollen abdomen, diarrhea and nausea. My gi issues really piss me off. I eat dairy in form of heavy cream and butter, are they usually problematic? I think i suffer from ibs. My problems gone worse, when i started really high... (more)
I do not do any diary, in an form...no butters or creams. I have coconut milk and oil, oklive oil, fish, meat, tons of veggies, but I still am only getting 1500 calories a day, an dI;m not hungry, I run 3 miles every other day. I only have a sweet... (more)
Dave, I have read recently that high protein consumption promotes more rapid cell division, while a lower protein diet causes the body to turn towards repairing, restoring and protecting its existing cells. More rapid cell division would wear... (more)
Hello there, i'm after some suggestions for high fat/protein/low carb liquid foods please, or food that do well liquidised in a smoothie I'm getting removable braces fitted that you have to leave in for 20 hours per day & take out when... (more)
This is a great website. Thanks for all the help so far. So I cut out the chocolate, processed foods, fruit, had 21 days of withdrawal (day 21 was worst), candida die off etc etc. The cravings stopped. Brilliant. None of the daily trips to the... (more)
I'm not an expert, but perhaps you're eating a bit too much protein? I'd make sure most of your plate is filled with veggies and just one serving (palm size) of protein.

I am a male 5'7 about 135 lbs, very little bodyfat. I am very active. I play soccer 2 times a week, run 3 miles a week, sprint twice a week, lift weights twice a week, and my job requires me to be on my feet the whole day, sometimes hauling heavy... (more)
So. After my doc tried to convince me that T3 & T4 were the same thing as FT3 & FT4 and refused to let me get those tests, I finally decided to go get my own labs at a different place. Here's what I have: (taken 1 month ago) T4 ... (more)
I've heard of low triglycerides...but this seems scarily low... Triglycerides: 17 Cholesterol: 233 HDL: 86 LDL: 144 Any ideas on what would cause this scenario and what one would do about it? (more)
I've been primal for 13 months now, and in that time I've had my cholesterol checked twice. I am 6'2 and 192 pounds. When I started primal, I was 235 pounds. My blood pressure went from being routinely in the 140/90 range a year ago to 110/70... (more)
I'm looking for some opinions from people (specifically women would be great) that have had success Paleo-wise with body recomposition/fat loss while preserving lean mass. I'm really new to this - I was actually eating pretty much high carb, low... (more)
I have recently been told that I am likely battling a Cortisol issue. Life is high stress, so I'm not surprised. I am having trouble putting my thumb on some concrete things I could be doing/ not doing to combat the issue. There's only so much... (more)
Question for you guys! (I should be asking my D.O., but it is frankly awkward as I am thinking he gave me the wrong supplement for the opposite condition) I took a saliva cortisol/DHEA test. I am not posting the numbers since I know all labs use... (more)
So what it looks like is the supplement he gave you is meant to support the adrenal glands. In the earliest stages of adrenal(stage 2 it seems you're in, if at all), cortisol is too high, as a result of too much stress. Cortisol itself is not the... (more)
Do you think a high-carb paleo diet could work for an obese person? Would it allow an easier transition to paleo? Are there any possible health problems that might occur? Say a person is obese and eats a ton of carbs, of course they are... (more)
I know that the whole paleo community has learned to become increasingly macronutrient agnostic, but I was wondering if anyone who has experimented with both sides of the spectrum--high carb and high fat-- can discuss which approach afforded an... (more)
Hey I recently got some bloodwork done. Just turned 25. Total cholesterol was above 11mmol/l LDL cholesterol was above 9mmol/l HDL was 1.41 mmol/L Triglycerides were 1.06 mmol/L Background: for the past 2-3 weeks I've been dieting with a fairly... (more)
So I got my labs back today (some, still waiting on the VAP test) and to be honest I'm a little freaked out. Vitamin B12: 1069 pg/mL Normal range: 211-946 Lymphs: 48% (high) Normal range: 14-46% Lymphs Absolute: 2.1 Normal range:... (more)
When are High HDL and low triglycerides indicative of problems on a Paleo/WAPF style diet? I recently asked my doctor for a lipid profile. I started a more WAPF way of eating just around the time of my last lipid profile (life insurance... (more)
So I'm 3 months paleo now. I take my cholesterol every 2 weeks with a CardioChek machine. My TG are fairly stable around 85-95 (unless I've been binging on nuts in which they jump to 130 for a day or two). My HDL is pathetic as always staying... (more)
I get this great food high after eating and would like to know more about it but searching "food" and "high" together in google is pointless. I'm strictly Primal (fat, protein, veggies) with grass fed beef, Kerrygold butter (my only dairy), lots... (more)
So, I am trying to quit alcohol, I have never been a fan of pot. Conventional tea is boring, and one can't exercise 24/7. How do you increase endorphins and become "naturally" high and pleasant? Most humans are awful and the world is a generally... (more)
Here are my few suggestions: High-reward foods. When I need an up, I eat foods that make me happy. And / or I cook. Something about it is exhilarating for me. If I can't exercise, i put on a good song and dance around. Spending time with my... (more)
Have been on paleo for 17 days now, and feeling pretty good. Energy levels are consistant throughout the day, and the weight is coming off at a steady pace. Before beginning paleo i had a blood pressure reading of 150-96. Scary to say the least.... (more)
http://news.yahoo.com/calories-not-protein-boost-body-fat-study-210604823.html Link to yahoo news (US) article stating that those on a LOW protein diet (and high carb) have more body fat... are they starting to figure it out? had to share. (more)
I've come by a lot of articles stating that coconut,especially coconut oil,doesn't make you gain fat but actually hightens your metabolism. I just never seem to get what that actually means.....does it mean that one can eat more (different) fats... (more)
Basically, any excess of long chain fatty acids (the kind found in butter e.t.c) will be stored in the adipocytes, whilst the medium chain fats found in coconut oil are easily oxidised.
Do you agree with paleo-censorship?
