So I will admit I am a bit biased as I lost an absolute ton of weight before I found Paleo by simply eating a small quantity of quick oats ($1.79 for a generic cardboard tube) with a little bit of real maple syrup or real peanut butter for... (more)
Oats are often contaminated with other gluten grains during processing. (Thompson T (2005) Contaminated oats and other gluten-free foods in the United States. Journal of the American Dietetic Association. 105:348.) Also the avenin protein appears... (more)
I stumbled across this article today, http://www.smnweekly.com/add-years-to-your-life-by-eating-oatmeal-and-other-grain-products/8843/ Have we been doing it wrong? I'm thinking of switching back to mass oatmeal.
These studies are often skewed, and funded by companies that sell "whole" grain products, so the outcomes are not very surprising. This article describes how the results are skewed and, most importantly, correlation is not causation. Will Eating... (more)
Oats can be fantastic (for those that do not have intolerance). For those who are not sensitive, all the arguments against oats can be countered. *High in phytic acid*. - can be neutralized by soaking in an acidic medium with buckwheat flour... (more)
Hi, a newby here. I am not even on Paleo (or any other) diet, but trying to find the right one for me. One thing I am trying to understand about Paleo and teeth is this: I have read at several places that oats for example, are very bad because of... (more)
Ok, so I spent some time researching what the Irish Ancestral Diet looked like, particularly before the potato, and after reading many sources it came out looking like Paleo + oats and dairy, with the caveat that they were both primary sources of... (more)
I've been experimenting with paleo for almost a year now and realized I feel more full with more carbs (I tried to go low-carb for a while and it was just frustrating with too much bingeing. High-fat doesn't feel too great for me, either). I've... (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)
I am really interested in the diet but worry that I won't be able to afford having meat every morning. What do you do when you get sick of eggs for breakfast? I'm used to oatmeal and its the only grain I really find it will be hard to give up... (more)
I usually don't eat rice but I am needing to safe money and I find myself eating to much sugar (from fruits) so I am trying to get away from that. Also Is oatmeal worse or better than rice IF you had to choose from either ? Paleo Daddy on a budget... (more)
I'm starting to eat paleo foods and so far I have eliminated all legumes and grains...except oats. I have been trying to eliminate oats, but I'm addicted, so many years of killing hunger with oats made them my favorite food, their flavor tastes... (more)
2.3g of polyunsaturated fat per 100g of dry oats, 2.2g of which are o-6. The ratio heavily favors o-6 but the overall fat content is negligible.
My husband is 28 years old, 5'9, and now only weighs 120lbs. Before going paleo he was still pretty healthy but weighed in at 140. He walks to and from work every day, so just over 2 miles. And usually likes to take a walk during lunch because he... (more)
I used to have oats for breakfast, I'm tempted to get back to them. I used to ear regular oats and be satiated for about 4 hours or so, which in my grain-fest-laden days, was really something. So what about gluten-free oats? They are gluten... (more)
I am experimenting with traditional recipes like cookies, pancakes, and such by swapping out lactose, gluten, sugar, and anything processed. I'm doing this to convince people in my life that paleo is not as limiting as they believe. Anyway, I... (more)
I was reading an article on Mark's Daily Apple yesterday about oats. Everything was sounding very familiar and near the end I saw a reference to PaleoHacks. I clicked the link and BAM! It was my oatmeal post here!! He used my recipe to make baked... (more)
What's the rule of thumb when it comes to gluten free oats and granola? Would these items be considered paleo? The brands I saw were made with "brown rice flour". I wouldn't consume too much of these either way, but I am just wondering if they are... (more)
Hi everyone, A quick-and-dirty about flax: I like to keep my carbs in the morning nil-to-low. However, I have this genetic condition: I'm Scottish, which means sometimes I medically require porridge (or at least a passable substitute). So,... (more)
Thanks, @Janknitz. Not really what I wanted to hear but it sounds like advice I shouldn't ignore! My menstrual cycle is erratic and unpredictable... hmmmmm.
Hey guys, So I had the athlete paleo thread earlier going on..I really need to put on some weight as I'm losing it too easily. For now until I find a solution would you recommend I do conventional whole milk (I'm at school and can't really... (more)
First off, I want to apologize for such a stupid question. I just really need some guidance and I'm hoping someone can help. So right now I'm not completely Paleo, but I'm almost. I really want to become 100% Paleo though, but there's a problem.... (more)
Okay, so I've followed every bit of paleo advice to try and eradicate the acne that continued to populate my forehead, nose and chin to no avail. My skin there remained as it always did: oily with clogged pores. I can't put any kind of soap on my... (more)
My doctor told me I was fine to follow a modified Paleo diet and allow myself some wild rice and rolled oats (I love oatmeal). All the literature I had read advised against these, so for the first week I avoided them completely. This morning I... (more)
I have recently upped my carbs to be more in line with PHD, but going no higher than 100 g a day (before I was under 50g a day). In part I have been eating half a cup of (certified) gluten-free oatmeal, and I'm not convinced that it's any worse... (more)
Hi hackers. Having recently discovered Paleo/Primal, I'm working to transition my family away from our SAD ways towards a healthier way of eating. We're not too far off actually, just have to get rid of some crackers, bagels and cereal. One of... (more)
