Hello, I am aware of people using myfitnesspal, apps, and websites to track their rough intake as a whole. My problem is how do you know what grams of protein,fat and carbs look like on a plate? So lets say I need 95 total grams of... (more)
I just want to make it clear that this is not really an important question, and I am not agonising over it! I'm just curious. In terms of meat (I also eat eggs and oily fish such as sprats and sardines), I eat lamb, goat and beef. I vary... (more)
No, chicken doesn't really offer anything unique, unlike fish (omega-3s), beef (iron and zinc), and pork (thiamine).
I'm curious if I am missing out any important fat sources. Most of my fats come from: -Coconut butter/oil -Nut butter -Avocados -Fish oil -Grass-fed beef, but this is usually lean and about 1-2 times per week I... (more)
Where other than the USDA food database do you get nutrition info from? I've been using Chronometer a lot lately and they get their data from the same place as nutritiondata.self.com... The USDA food database I think. This is severely... (more)
I was wondering what nutrients become depleted during tabata workouts? What do i need to eat to replenish them, carbs, carbs and protein, nothing??? I've been doing HIIT traing for a long time, and just started doing tabata intervals, 20sec on/... (more)
Is it possible to overdose on thiamine supplements, or does it have any other negative effects like folate? I take a 100mg tablet every day, I try to get what i can from food. I also take folate, but in the metafolin form.
It depends on season and latitude, and as SF mentions, activity. It makes no sense to stick to fixed ratios. If you start cutting out all processed foods, you can start experimenting and figure out in a year or so what makes you prosper.
Are there specific benefits to eating muscle meat from land animals (e.g, chicken, beef, pork)? Their fat is a good source of saturated fatty acids and fat-soluble vitamins; their bones and cartilage are full of minerals and other healthy... (more)
Is it a good idea to drink the water that remains after boiling vegetables? The reason i ask is because i know boiling makes the vegs lose their nutrients but it is the quickest and easiest way for me to cook my vegetables. where do the lost... (more)
Hey all just a quick question. I've been supplementing with 5,000iu's of liquid vitamin d-3 for the past couple weeks. I've been putting it in my coffee mixed with organic pasture raised (not raw) heavy whipping cream or grass-fed butter + mct... (more)
Hi there, I noticed something new about my body and food today When I eat white rice as my days worth of safe starch I can't seem to satisfy my appetite. However, when I eat sweet potato, I am satiated with a much smaller amount of... (more)
I made kidneys and to get rid of that nasty smell and yellow urine color I had to boil them in seven different waters. They taste fine, but it took me a lot of effort to get them that way. Are kidneys worth all that effort? Or can I just... (more)
Hello, I am a 18 year old female who has been following the paleolithic life style for about 8 months now, and I love it! I just have a few questions and concerns that I was wondering if anyone could give me advice! First, I am a very small... (more)
Is it possible for a person to eat paleo but use eggs only (and possibly insects---we'll see) as a protein source? I'm not one to be duped by grains and legumes and so jumping on the vegan/vegetarian bandwagon isn't for me. To boot, me and... (more)
Fellow PaleoHacks, Does the way you cook/prepare your eggs affect/alter the amount of nutrients you would ultimately end up consuming when you eat them? For instance, is the nutrient density in hard boiled eggs higher/lower in comparison to the... (more)
Is the color of an egg yolk a reliable indicator of nutruient content, or more related to the another factor (ie type of chicken or feed)? The farm raised eggs I get locally have almost orange yolks, whereas most store bought egg yolks are more... (more)
I often eat shrimp with the shells and tails on. A friend who owns a fish market turned me on to it... Lots of great flavor there and its a common practice in several cultures. Anybody have any idea what nutritional benefit they add vs shelled? ... (more)
Good source of glucosamine/chondroitin. Good for joints. Shells and tails are often used in stock, like bones of other animals. I imagine a good source of calcium and other unspoken minerals, but don't quote me on that.
Hi guys, i thought i would be fun to try to compile a list of the most nutrient dense foods. The goal was to make the shortest list of ingredients but with all nutrients covered in reasonable amounts. So you could go and buy these eight... (more)
Have you seen Mat Lalonde's AHS12 talk? It may not be available yet but he pretty much already did what you're trying to do.
I'm interested in making a list of how to best absorb specific nutrients. Whether or not we always want to best absorb each nutrient is debatable, but I think putting this information together could be really beneficial. I started with iron and... (more)
Am I correct in thinking that the main reason behind "eat a variety of fruits and vegetables" is to ensure a full nutrient portfolio? I've put my meals into FitDay and over the week I get pretty much double of triple of the RDA of everything... (more)
The study of nutrition and which vitamins, minerals and phyto-chemicals are essential or important is still quite young. A major reason to eat a wide variety is to obtain the important nutrients we don't yet know.
In general, are vitamins and minerals from animal sources better assimilated by our body? It seems amongst animals, humans have a relatively small gut, more suited to digest animal foods than high plant foods. As an example, is vitamin A from... (more)
Hey guys, I was just wondering if anyone has come across any great resources of food matrix-like graphs (or even just sites that list them), that have like common fruits, veggies, meats, etc. and where they rank as far as the vitamins/ minerals... (more)
So I've battled eczema my whole life, and in the last 5 years it's just gotten progressively worse. I'm chronically itchy at least 70% of the day. I had allergy tests done by drawing blood and the results came back that I was allergic to just... (more)
