There's an old saying: "The solution to pollution is dilution". That got me thinking (or perhaps over-thinking which I have a tendency to do): If you constantly consumed a substance to which you were intolerant (e.g. nightshades or dairy), how... (more)
Brief introduction, fighting mystery illness for the past 7 years, Grain free since May 2011, sugar free since February 2012. Still am reacting to eggs, beef, and even chicken. Pretty much all cruciferious vegetables give me problems, either... (more)
I eat at least 2 eggs every morning, most often with half an avocado for breakfast. I have had very odorous farts and am wondering if it's due to the eggs (They're the only thing I eat consistently from day to day). If it is the eggs, does this... (more)
I always had trouble with clams, mussels, octopus and oysters - yesterday I had 5 fresh oysters hoping I would finally be able to digest them after 5 months of pretty strictly eating paleo... even had some apple cider vinegar just before it to... (more)
For months I fried a small oyster with a strip of bacon for breakfast every day. Sometimes I'd chop the oyster into an egg and cook a small omelet with the bacon. Never any stomach problems.
Well, not literally. let me describe what happened with me on my paleo diet(and i think im nit the obly one to whol this occured. Well, ive been doing Fitness stuff since quite a while (1 1/2 years) now and through this, i also got in touch... (more)
So... yes. That is what happened. Within an hour I think.. I bring this up because I'm starting college soon in the city and I am a complete foodie. I love trying different foods and occasionally indulging in non-paleo foods. I plan on staying... (more)
I never got gas from canned beans. Then I went two months eating only sprouted legumes. One day I ate a can of supermarket beans, and had comically bad gas for the next 12 hours. A few days later I ate a second can of beans, and had no gas... (more)
Hi there, I was wondering if any bodybuilding folks out there that supplement with whey protein shakes have an alternative option for us dairy intolerant people. I was checking out some beef protein by Muscle Meds Carnivore and Optimum... (more)
Egg protein is great...good inbetween of whey and casein. If you have a reliable source to get fresh eggs from, have em raw. If not, you can buy the powder or just east eggs after your workout (hardboiled if you want immediately after)
There is lactose intolerance and there is casein allergy - both components in milk and also found in whey protein concentrate. Whey protein isolate is a very purified version of whey and my question is are there any here who have found an issue... (more)
A week ago, I bought a lamb roast from Costco (imported from Oz), cut it up into steaks and smaller roasts and froze the meat. I decided to make lamb steaks last night for dinner, just fried in some ghee with a bit of salt and pepper, with some... (more)
I gave up eggs on a trial basis to see if it would help my endometriosis. What it did do was reverse the severe constipation I've had for years. How can I know if this constipation is a simple constituency of stool problem, and therefore can... (more)
Hi Fellow Paleo-ers! Listen, have you been paleo for a while (ive been for 2 months) and if you try to consume a grain, even the tiniest little piece, you get a reaction similar to anaphylatic shock but without your throat closing? I have always... (more)
thanks for the reply, same exact thing happens to me. BTW, ive been tested for celiac as well as that was negative. Last night i wanted to try a little experiment. I ate one cookie. And before i swallowed it the skin on the roof of mouth peeled... (more)
Hi guys, long time since I've been on this forum, I've kind of drifted away from paleo, perhaps because I've been on Prozac for the last six months (came off a month ago) and am no longer depressed and as a result perhaps not so orthorexic I had... (more)
I went full blown fatty meat only and ketosis paleo in January, and stayed that way until May. I had zero problems with eating huge meals of the fattiest meat. My body seemed to scream thank you. I ate 2500-3000 cal a day this way (gained... (more)
About two years ago I started to experience this disgusting fishy taste when I burped, I do not take fish oil supplements or any medication apart from a probiotic and spirulina. The taste would continue for a long time and effect what I ate, how I... (more)
So, I've discovered that making your own fermented things is super-satisfying, but I'm dairy-intolerant and thus have a limited number of ways to start ferments! Sauerkraut and veggies are fine on their own of course, but I'd like to make coconut... (more)
This is a follow-up for this question. It's pretty clear that paleo is not a band-aid for most of us. In my case, I ended up with a dairy and orange juice intolerance. A couple of months before paleo I was able to eat those with no issues, after... (more)
Is eating the same food almost everyday a sure way to become intolerant to that food or is that just a myth? Traditional cultures seem to have no problems , I think, from consuming the same thing day in day out.
My son has a "true" allergy to brazil nuts which could kill him. My feel is that the rest is intolerance due to leaky gut. I was "allergic to everything" and they all went away when I stopped eating wheat. Gotta heal the gut.
I went paleo, I eventually put 2 + 2 together and realised that I was intolerant to milk. I used to drink a pint every few days pre-paleo but when I changed, even a splash in my coffee would have my stomach make the weirdest noises, I'd have gas... (more)
Forgive me - I know it is not a very "intelligent" question, but it bugs me and I just want to know what people think. QUESTION #1 When I got gravely ill, I went gluten-free (my doctor told me so). This was probably the best advice any doctor... (more)
Hi! I am thinking about starting a Paleo lifestyle, or at least try whole30 (for general better health (I have IBS, migraines and random/vague pains) and weight loss), but I am not 100% sure yet. I thought "trying won't hurt", but now I am reading... (more)
I was allergic to eggs big time. Found out it was what the chickens were eating. Soy. Almost all chickens are fed a vegetarian diet of soy. Even the free-range chickens are given supplemental feed. Soy free egg = no egg allergy.
Hello All! (C/N at bottom) I recently started eating similarly to Paleo without meaning to be going on a "Paleo" diet. In November, my then just over 2 month old son was diagnosed with food intolerances. "Food for a 2 month old?" you may be... (more)
Back in 2004 I was self diagnosed with Lactose intolerance. I was bad enough off that even a chocolate bar would set off my lactose intolerance. Last year I found out (like most everyone else) that I am gluten intolerant. I did a little digging... (more)
Absolutely, as a matter of fact, gluten, gliadin, and host of other "goodies" found in wheat actually damage the small intestine cells that make the enzyme that digests lactose (called lactase). Its very common to see the return of these cells to... (more)
