Hi, My name is Kristen. I am new to the Paleo diet and trying to adjust my eating habits to be more healthy. I am a 40 year old mother of a little girl. For the past several years I have been battling some annoying disorders, including Fibro... (more)
Cheese is pretty okay as long as it is whole, natural, and doesn't upset your stomach. The fattier the better with cheese. Carbs are okay in moderation as long as they come from "safe sources" but I'll let you do your own research there and just... (more)
Some natural flavors I don't mind ingesting occasionally, such as natural raspberry flavor from natural beaver innard juices, but there might be others derived from things that I normally avoid like the plague. To determine whether I should... (more)
I was just wondering if someone can give me a path to becoming a nutritionist and the different things one can become from there. Just any wisdom in general would help.
Doing a little research into raw meat. I came across theprimalparent.com and she was talking all about raw meat and it got me to some thinking. Has/does anybody eat raw meat? How do you "prepare" it...whats with the freezing? Do you thaw it then... (more)
Saw this on Facebook today. It's got a couple of minor issues with it, but overall it's not bad. So what do you think? Is it just a funny graphic? Or is it darn near close to being a good overview of the paleo diet? PS. Please credit the... (more)
Do you consult any non-paleo sources of information? Sometimes my friends criticize me for getting all of my information from one source - the paleo blogosphere - which biases the type of information to which I am exposed. This criticism rings... (more)
I get most of my info from scientific papers, which are decidedly not paleo, but I have found that when I want to get relevant info on something, it is often better to search for "X paleo" than simply "X."
There are a lot of good paleo sites, with lots of good starters-guides. But I want something for my waiting room, so my patients can read about it. So I'm looking for a visually attractive flyer/brochure on the paleo diet. Even a good interview of... (more)
I took out a giant shopping bag from the fridge (not freezer) with three giant wild caught salmon filets and three seperately wrapped pounds of grass fed beef. They were all in the same shopping bag. I cooked one salmon filet around 6:20, when I... (more)
I commonly see questions from new users that ask things like "why am I so tired" or "should I change my diet" without telling us how much they're currently eating, or what foods, or for how long. People ask "should I eat more carbs" without saying... (more)
I agree with greymouser and the OP: we can be of best assistance to others with some basic information from the person posing the question. I've stopped counting the times I've written, "how many calories do you eat a day?""What do you eat?" "What... (more)
Does the source of your information on diet and health determine how you accept the information? Do you question and research into advice from paleo* online/book sources as you would from your Primary Care doctor or other conventional... (more)
I agree with Rose regarding the element of faith. We could go on and on about how someone earns our trust and becomes a "guru" that we rely upon (e.g. formal training, letters before/after their name, personal life transformation story, etc).... (more)
I've read tens of thousands of words on various paleoish blogs in the last year, as well as listening to hours of podcasts. I've gleaned from this what strikes me as a very convincing argument that gluten should be avoided. But I don't think I'd... (more)
Specifically for me: I had heard about protein-sparing modified fat fasts (from the Dr. Atkins book) as I had been Atkins-style low carb for many years. I was searching for information via google on whether there was any new information on the... (more)
I'm really interested in finding information on these. If I am understanding correctly, the breakdown of some of the proteins in certain grains and dairy can cause a reaction in the opioid receptors (info from just one article), and that in rats,... (more)
This is an offshoot from another question (here) but it seemed good enough to warrant its own thread. Has going Paleo affected how you view the news/media information? If CW was so dead wrong about nutrition, are they right about anything?... (more)
I was a skeptic before I found paleo... now I'm cynical/skeptical of almost everything I hear. My non-skeptic/SAD friends probably think I'm a big ol Debbie Downer. As far as the news goes, I trust Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart more than any... (more)
Do you comit with Jon Young words? That we are overloaded by infromation? http://www.8giftsfromnature.com/sp/5637-the-8-gifts-from-nature-online-course (more)
What is the best piece of information you've received from the Paleo Hack boards? How did the new information change your life? That information could be a recipe, a vitamin, food, weight loss, nutrition, help with an illness, workout routine, or... (more)
The new Paleo Diet Infographic (see "Click Me," right side column) is quite good. However, it's got an error of fact that could be easily corrected, and should be. The "McGovern Commission" was headed by Sen. George McGovern, but it had nothing... (more)
Just started my daily Paleo blog. Keeping posts between 300-500 words. Not sure if it will be any good but its worth a stab. Here's my very first post if you fancy a read. Much... (more)
