I know our body can create new fat cells as we expand, however I have yet to find a source that can claim that during weight loss and once a fat cell is depleted that the body destroys the cell. I find some sources that say that yes the body can... (more)
I'm a R&D chef working on a Paleo Diet project and the question has come up a few times regarding Gelatin. Is this ok to use in small amounts?
Definitely more than OK, in fact since our paleolithic ancestors seem to have scavenged often, broke down the bones, and boiled them, it would have been a major part of the diet. Some people argue that it might even be an essential part of the... (more)
I have been following the paleo lifestyle for about 4 months now, with increasingly strict adherence (because I like it). I have noticed significant benefits with weight loss and my general mood. In the last 3-4 weeks I have started to... (more)
If you have dinner at 6 p.m. and skip breakfast, eating lunch at noon, that would be 18 hours and I doubt anyone would think much of that. Do what feels right to you. Your body will tell you if you need to eat more often.
What would be better to drink: raw grass-fed cow's milk or coconut milk? Nutrition-wise, I'm guessing cow's milk would be better for you, but if you're sensitive to that, then I'd guess coconut milk would be better, but not as nutritious?
Tacos from scratch are pretty paleo, the shell/tortilla is of course up for debate. I choose to allow them as they are kind of rare for me. What are some great spice blends to use on the ground meat? The packaged type usually have loads of... (more)
He's probably referenced on this site more than any individual yet he's only had an online presence for 3 months! Should he tweet more @garytaubes? What should he tweet about? Create a Facebook page for himself instead of his book... (more)
Hi! I went to Whole Foods yesterday and found this little piece of beauty when I was going to check out. http://www.peppersmith.co.uk/ It's made entirely from natural ingredients and sweetened with xylitol. I quit chewing gum when I went Paleo... (more)
I've lost about 100 lbs (last 50 or so Paleo/Primal---Fairly strict) over the last 2 years and 3 months. Has anyone else who has lost a lot of weight experienced shrinking pains, around the rib cage especially? Is this normal? Does it go away? (more)
GMO Fruits, Veggies and ...yes Salmon...lately it hit that since I've haven't been eating Grains, Dairy and Legumes, that I'm basically eating genetically modified garbage... Ever feel like you've left one evil for another.
I was reading through the 'Body by God' workbook and was surprised by the similarities to Paleo. Yes, they do recommend grains, but also recommend grass-fed animal products. Some things that I remember from the workbook: Eat your carbs earlier... (more)
In the same vein there is The Liberation Diet Haven't read it, but heard him speak at Wise Traditions and wasn't impressed with his awkward use of Bible verses out of context to make them seem like diet advice. The Maker's Diet Also haven't... (more)
I posted a few months ago about sometimes feeling anxiety symptoms (increased heartbeat) after eating. It appears to be getting more frequent and I haven't been able to trace it down to a particular food. I've been thinking it's some kind of... (more)
As the nuclear disaster in Fukushima continues to unfold, there has been recent information on radiation at sea water around the plant. So far, this is an issue that is very much focused in a small area of Japan, but since the leaking might... (more)
Does anyone know if Pacific or Alaskan Salmon production has been affected by the Tsunami? I have not bought Salmon since early march, prior to the tragedy in Japan, so if anyone has bought since then, please advise.
This past weekend I ate more carbs then usual. Not from bad sugars-- mostly fruits and starchy veggies. Yesterday I ate mostly greens and starchy veggies and bit of fat (just not in the mood to eat protein yesterday) def ate lower calories --... (more)
So I recently thought I would tinker with a paleo zone, to see if it helps lean out. Going to stick with the paleo foundation just add in the zone block theory. I read that ramping up the fat is a good idea, especially since I am pretty active.... (more)
So my friend is on the Slow-Carb diet with his friend, and I recently ran into his girlfriend on the subway. We chatted about this and that, and eventually she said "He's miserable...all these beans! He feels like s**t!" I told her I would have... (more)
I have perused the internet recently regarding vegetables(whether to include them or not, if so which are best--least fructose, least starchy carbs, most nutrients, least toxic, most plentiful where I live for the least cost). I have sifted... (more)
Goitrogens are only relevant if you're consuming iodine with them. If you eat kelp in the morning and brassicas at night, it's not really going to matter much.
Another vegetable question: Does Garlic contain alot of fructose? Is it toxic in large amounts(Of oven-roasted garlic bought 'fresh' from the grocery store)? I have heard from one internet site that it is "pathogenic". Of course what disease it... (more)
