Hi all - so I've got celiac, MS, leaky gut, anemia, insulin resistance, fluctuating blood sugar/cortisol, hypochloridia and SIBO. kind of cured myself of PCOS just via eating PALEO (now get period regularly, but i still have insanely high DHEA)... (more)
Love Paleo but new to this community. Had just come off Jason Vale's wonderful 7 Pounds in 7 Days Juicing Program which I have successfully done a few times over the years to kick-start my summers. This time however I was a little constipated... (more)
Hey, Just wondering if anyone here has any experience with all the high end juices you see at Whole foods. Are they worth it? I heard from someone that they are still processed and kill all the nutrients and enzymes. I travel a lot so for me... (more)
An interesting article:http://www.proteinpower.com/drmike/low-carb-librar...Do you think it may not be so, and why ?Considering other species may also be helpful, such as:The anteaters prove exoskeletons aren???t good for growing brains also ? I... (more)
Hi, every day i'm getting more and more convinced that my gut is what is holding me back on losing my final belly fat, my skin conditions(Keratosis pilaris) and probably some of my mental problems(concentration issues, etc). I want to do... (more)
I have been trying to lose a bit of weight for awhile now (around 10 lbs). I've been paleo for over a year and have lost about 10 pounds (though, really hard to tell since my weight fluctuates so much). I started paleo at 152 and I am now at 139.... (more)
I'm on a strict a Paleo diet except for vegetables (I only digest avocados) and fruits (I only tolerate berries). Anything else (veggies) I try to eat gives me bad bloating, IBS and unbearable insomnia. In the last weeks I used juicing 2 cups a... (more)
I know, I know, juice is processed food. But, first of all, it is minimally processed, and, most importantly, I am doing it to heal my gastritis - I went off PPI and I am trying out that cabbage juice theory. So, every time I drink cabbage juice,... (more)
Recently I have bought a juicer and today I have tried it out. I made a special blend - parsley, beet greens, arugula, spinach, ginger and 3 medium beets. All three cups were awfully bitter because of greens. I had a hard time finishing them. So... (more)
There's controversy over whether plants are essential to our diets. I once did a 6-month experiment with zero carbs (except for incidental carbs in eggs). I ran into a variety of problems which may or may not have been caused by a lack of carbs. A... (more)
are you having any fermented foods at all?i.e. kefir, picked veggies, yoghurt, wine/beer (homebrewed, that is)? lots of micro-nutrients there, but it's just a thought.perhaps in a future trial.
I'm curious, who saves the water from steamed vegetables to drink later? When I steam either kale or collard greens, I tend to throw away the water below the collapsible steamer. I'm thinking, perhaps it's a good idea to save the greenish water... (more)
Has anyone seen this? Hungryforchange.tv , the movie is free until March 31. It really tends towards the raw vegan Paleo side, but there are a few mentions of low carb and "high quality animal products.". A whole section on juicing and... (more)
I have moderate Gastroparesis (6 yrs. no cure in sight) meaning I have to eat 6 small meals day avoiding fat, fiber and sugar. On top of it I cannot tolerate much dairy, only plain Greek yogurt and no red meat at all. I am interested in eating... (more)
I only had idiopathic gastroparesis for about a year. I stopped following the conventional recs pretty quickly and started a paleo diet high in fat. But every case of gastroparesis is different. What worked for me is a zero carb diet of mainly raw... (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?
So, my daughter(age 13)and I watched the documentary Fat, Sick and Nearly Dying. I struggled with my weight since I was a child. It wasn't until a few years ago that I educated myself on this paleo way of life and how much healthier I feel. My... (more)
I'm going to be what might be overly blunt here. Food craziness can cause BIG problems in kids, who grow into adults, for LIFE. As parents, we all struggle with what we feel is best for our children and we struggle more if we have, ourselves,... (more)
I have been thinking about juicing to get a few more raw veggies into my diet..from a previous question i know that blending veg makes them more bio-available. I tried it & to be honest I didn't like the chew & drink action..it may not... (more)
If you were to choose EITHER juicing or blending, which would it be and why? I think there are benefits to both, and my kids love smoothies as well as "veggie" juices. I want to invest in a commercial grade juicer and blender (the ones I have... (more)
Hi everyone, Hopefully someone can help me answer this question. During the day I will eat some fish, beef or chicken. I eat some veggies during each meal. When I have protein I tend to get full super fast, so I cant finish my veggies. Or its the... (more)
Hello all, just in a charitable spirit, I gotta say, a juicer is a great idea for a gift. I'm really boosting that industry. My question is has anyone been doing this for a while, particularly to fight something such as depression? I've... (more)
all of my housemates and i are in an 8 week paleo challenge. most of us are doing great and seeing huge improvements in different areas of our health except for one... she is a self professed 12 year old boy when it comes to her eating habits. ... (more)
I have started juicing a couple of days ago. I am wondering if I am losing something by feeding the pulp leftover to the chickens. Your thoughts?
My take on a juice fast (I hate cleaning my juicer.) Only consuming strained bone broth for 7 days. Been adding beets and carrots to the broth to give it a bit of carb kick. Usually add a tablespoon or two of lard or CO. Any tips for my bone... (more)
happy holidays everyone! So i have been taking betaine hcl (about 5,000 with each meal) and less with smaller snacks. I have h pylori and believe that is what is suppressing my stomach acid. i just bought a juicer, and have been juicing greens. ... (more)
