Hi everyone, First I want to thank everyone for answering my previous questions. I am a newbie and want to know if I did eat steak everyday is it really bad for me. (I get grassfed beef) If I cant get grassfed beef would it be better not to eat... (more)
I want to have a shake in the morning, and I'm wondering if this is okay or somewhat okay: http://myvega.com/products/vega-shake-and-go/features-benefits I'm getting tired of eggs in the morning. Thanks! (more)
I had to google to find the ingredients, and I think I found the one you linked to. With that said, it looks like a green drink with a bunch of vegan protein sources. I wouldn't drink it, but to each their own.
HI I'm considering adding a protein powder to my diet. I have trouble eating enough for my activity level because of my IBS so I'm a bit underweight. I don't have the patience/energy to do bone broth every day and the Great Lakes gelatin I use... (more)
I was just wondering if anyone on here does a high protein diet? What happens when you eat a diet primarily of protein with low carbs and low fats? I remember reading once that what your body cannot use of protein, it wastes. Does that mean you... (more)
How are you guys able to measure how many grams of protein you are eating? I don't have a scale..Also, I have heard you must eat 1 gram per desirable weight. I want to be 130lbs, so 130 grams? Is this right?
I have been doing a ton of reading and just never posted anything before so just bare with me here. I appreciate any and all help. I am 6'7" and 300lbs. Have been following a Paleo Diet for a few weeks now, but always have bad weekends (beer)... (more)
My roommate is constantly trying to find out how much protein should be eating, and has turned to the internet and asking people that give her conflicting answers. She's naturally thin (5'6" and 110), does yoga a few times a week, and works as a... (more)
What???s your view on the recent emerging buzz that the typical hunter-gatherer tribe eats only once a day? If humans can only absorb around 35g of protein at one time, this would mean that even H-Gs eating very high protein diets would ACTUALLY... (more)
Is there any scientific or nutritional reasoning behind including protein with every meal? How bout just a hearty dark green leafy salad with avocado or something? FWIW, I'm a 22 year old male, 5 foot 10 and 118 lbs. For my whole life, gaining... (more)
I feel like I'm in the minority here... I am 118 lbs and 5'10" and I want to gain weight. I am dedicated to eating paleo also because i have rheumatoid arthritis and it helps a ton with that. Can't eat nuts though. Any tips on gaining weight... (more)
Yesterday I participated in Hydrostatic Body Fat Composition Testing, results heavily suggesting a caloric intake of 1404 (resting) and an extra 300 when exercising. Generally, paleo's don't calorie count for weight (/fat) loss, but I did find the... (more)
Calories do matter and people can experience weight gain on paleo if they overeat. Calorie counting is pretty easy nowadays with a variety of websites/apps that essentially do it for you. Cronometer, Paleotrack, LoseIt, FitDay, etc...
I have been doing crossfit 3-4 times a week plus netball game once a week as well as following the Paleo diet. I am worried i am not having enough protein so have recently be starting in the morning having a coconut milk, protein powder smoothy as... (more)
Is it just me or does following the 1g protein/lb of bodyweight with meals constructed around non-starchy vegies and protein/fat (aka meat) automatically put you in calorie restriction? Let me expand: Robb Wolf (kudos to the guy) suggests 1g/lb... (more)
Hypothetically speaking, which of the three macronutrients fats/proteins/carbs could singularly sustain you for the rest of your life if at all? And why?
None of them. They're all needed.
I see conflicting information on this all over the interwebs. Does a low carb diet lower testosterone? How about having high protein consumption? I've been experiencing lowered libido since getting stricter on my low carb diet, but I also... (more)
Hi, I have been eating paleo for almost 4 weeks now and I still don't feel great. The first few days were AMAZING. I had a ton of energy and all I wanted to do was work and get stuff done. Unfortunately after a few days I started to feel weak and... (more)
Of course protein is necessary but I'm starting to think the whole thing about not eating fat and getting protein in your body as soon as possible is BS... My opinion based on personal experience: fat might be beneficial to a post workout... (more)
I have heard garlic increases testosterone and protein synthesis. So I tried it. My diet: VLC mostly raw lamb and beef, meat/fat liver, fish oil, coconut oil, avocado, tallow, green veggies, no starchy roots or grains, or fruit. My goal has... (more)
+1 for "nocturnal emmisson", +1 for tracking your BW that closely, +1 for figuring out how to get a 6x increase in weight gain over base, by eating raw garlic.
I eat meat with fruit all the time because, well, it's delicious. The reason I've heard against eating fruit and meat together is that fruit contains vitamin c which can increase iron absorption. But then I thought about it... and a pepper has... (more)
What is does your protein intake look like? Has high (1.5-2g/lb bodyweight or more) protein intake affected your training and/or fat loss? I thought of this question after reading "The Myth of 1g/lb: Optimal Protein Intake for Bodybuilders", and... (more)
I'm gonna preface this by saying that this isn't a post about me complaining about why I can't eat all I want or whatever. It's just something I've noticed recently, and I'm curious if anyone else has experienced it, or if anyone knows why. So,... (more)
I'm surprised I haven't seen this here yet. I was wondering what people's thoughts here are on Quorn, a man-made protein product. It's not made from grains or soy. It's a mycroprotein. http://www.quorn.us/About-Us/ I normally eat eggs and... (more)
It's highly processed with various additives, so it's quite bad IMHO. I used to eat that a lot when I was living in the UK (I had a phase where I tried to limit real meat 12-14 years ago).
I'm wondering how many grams of protein per day is healthy and recommended for a young, active female? Should I follow the .8-1.2 grams/kg of body weight ratio? Any advice is greatly appreciated!
I've been Paleo for awhile, but recently I've begun to realize how cruel and harmful unethical farming and husbandry is. While it is relatively cheap and easy to move over to local and sustainable sources of fruits and vegetables, it is much... (more)
I never thought it possible...but I'm losing my taste for meat. Actually the thought of eating it makes me feel gaggy. I have always been a meat eater, and would prefer it over other treats .. but now that I've been eating so much of it...it's... (more)
Listen to your body, maybe take a break from the meat you regularly eat. Maybe take this as an opportunity to try other types of meat you don't ordinarily eat. Maybe you could try some new organ meats, duck, pheasant, quail, deer, or goat meat. (more)
