According to much of the advice I've read surrounding leptin, the leangains approach is not very healthy. Skipping breakfast, eating at night, etc. I've tried each of them and leangains works much better for me. I'm just not very hungry in the... (more)
http://www.advancednaturalmedicine.com/ds011812/ This guy promoting a stoneage diet. Does anyone heard of him and know him? Or is he just marketing king selling some bread with butter and jam. for some bucks on the internet? :) If he is a good... (more)
Hi, I've been on paleo diet since last year. I tried to find out more info about paleo and Thrombocytosis, but I cannot find any. My mother has thrombocytosis for a long while. She even had a genetic markup test, and it turns out that it is not in... (more)
So I'm on day 16 of following a very strict paleo diet and yet I'm not losing any weight. I'm frustrated and need advice as to what I am doing wrong...here some details about myself and my diet to this point; I'm a 31 year old female, 5'8 145lbs... (more)
For the life of me I do not understand how you can blame fat for diabetes? This is straight from Wikipedia: "Diabetes mellitus, often simply referred to as diabetes, is a group of metabolic diseases in which a person has high blood sugar, either... (more)
For the following foods which potato would go best with it from a nutriton perspective (russet or sweet)? Grass Fed Meat? Dark Leafy Greens? pastured eggs? I am planning on eating both types of potatoes and I am wondering which foods will... (more)
Mm.. because of my activity level I tend to have my sweets in the morning to replenish and build and then regular potatoes as night. Sometimes I roast the two together as a blend but lately have been switching off at night between roasted squash,... (more)
My wife has been complaining of pain in her big left toe for weeks now. We've ruled out an ingrown toe nail and improper shoes. She says it gets worse if she touches it. She does get her toes done about once a month. Any idea's?
I'm still having trouble understanding the difference between reward and taste. Is it that tastyness = reward but rewarding food can be not all that tasty initially. If that's not the case do there exist low-reward tasty foods? Or is that an... (more)
This always seems to happen. When I back off of my training, I dial-in my diet, and vice-versa. So, I've started training again and hit about 4 different exercises on Saturday (cleans, front squats, yoke walk, box jumps). Despite keeping my diet... (more)
I've been doing paleo-ish eating for about 18 months now and I think I finally fell into a routine. I've distilled my eating to four meals: Meal Option #1 6 hardboiled pastured eggs 1/2 lb of chopped raw kale smoked sardines OR bone... (more)
I had been using inulin powder recently along with the Primal Defense Probiotic. I read that inulin helps the probiotic, so it seemed like a good idea at the time. The inulin seemed to be causing me some gut ache, just below my waist, which... (more)
"It got me thinking though, if inulin and other FODMAPs are good for some of the so called "good bacteria" then surely avoiding FODMAPs is not good in the long run?" It's pretty unlikely you are sensitive to all FODMAPs and even more unlikely you... (more)
Does meat from grassfed or wild animal contain sugars or starch. Or are some organs more sugary than other parts of the animal?
Liver, shellfish and some fish all taste quite sweet to me. Since I dropped all starch (still lots of veg) 90% dark chocolate even tastes sweet. Even black coffee (dark roast) has some sugar/caramel notes I never noticed.
I saw my Lyme Dr. and he is aware of what I'm about to write. He is the one that recommended the Paleo diet: I've been suffering from Lyme disease x 5 years. Antibiotics and other treatments have not helped and I've only gotten worse. I'm 11... (more)
After a "Netflix Binge" over the past few weeks I have now watched several Guerrilla Documentaries and a couple of NatGeo specials regarding diet and lifestyle. I will admit many of their demonization of meat and animal products made me cringe,... (more)
Right, second question of the night! (spot the person who is starting paleo tomorrow...) I've been losing weight steadily for the past 6 months or so. Now i'm moving onto Paleo i'm not sure how to structure my meals. I know I should avoid fruit... (more)
Can a supplement that contains wheat starch keep you wheat addicted on a Paleo diet (with no grains and thus no wheat/gluten)? EDIT: So what I want to know is: can a supplement containing some wheat starch be the reason I still crave wheat... (more)
I think it would depend on your sensitivity to wheat. I looked at celiac.com and it seems there's a variety of wheat starch called Codex that's OK, but some people are still sensitive to it.
Many posters here are high fat, anti carbers. For a long time, I understood this. I have read the Kruse books, Ketosis books, "Good Calories" etc. I understand the science behind it and it makes total sense to me. My sister is Diabetic (juvenile... (more)
My answer is based on something that I've always had a hunch about, but didn't fully come to grips with until paleo released me from the clutches of the toxic food environment in which I've lived my entire life. And that is this: my body and... (more)
