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)
I weigh 145 pounds and I am 6'1 and I have been surprisingly eating a little over 120 grams of carbs for about four months now. I get a good amount of exercise with my job for eight hours a day for five days a week but it is not an excessive... (more)
I, like many of you I assume, feel that a paleo lifestyle just makes sense. But I'm having a hard time. Let me give you the facts first, then the struggles. I'm a small, lean girl. About 5'4 and 108-110 #, weight loss isn't something I'm remotely... (more)
Question: Last couple days, I've been having frozen blueberries and coconut butter, together for a dessert-ish item. Everytime I do this, the next morning, I have a rapid onset of a bowel movement, one that cleans me out better than fermented... (more)
This is on the third page of this paper: "The ready availability of dietary fats are so recent that natural selection has not yet had a chance to deal with them." My physiology professor sent us this article to read and it definitely made me stop... (more)
Has anyone starting Leangains/IFing checked this out? It's 5,000% easier to navigate than Martin Berkhan's site. http://www.precisionnutrition.com/intermittent-fasting/ I used to read Berardi's stuff many years ago while trying to get... (more)
okay i KNOW this isn't a paleo-friendly request and i could use lettuce. i am too thin so it won't kill me to sneak in a few carbs. anyhow i like wrap bread for veggies. what's a good affordable loosely paleo wrap bread i could buy or make to... (more)
has anyone tried to determine food sensitivities through use of a food diary? if so, what format did you use? right now i have two columns. on one side i just write down when and what i ate, and on the other, i highlight anything in regards of... (more)
I have seen chia smoothies around a number of paleo cooking pages, as well as other recipies that use chia as a 'gelling' agent to make pudding/jelly like deserts. Is breaking (or blending) chia and letting them soak to a gel the best way of... (more)
Chia can be digested soaked or not soaked, it does not really matter if they are soaked or not, although nutritional benefits will increase slightly if soaked.
Hi Paleo Friends :) I am on my 7th day of Paleo. I started weighing myself each day because I wanted to see if I was having success. I gained two pounds, lost two pounds, gained the two back. back and forth every day. Im currently 138.2 and... (more)
I would throw away your scale and focus on more important measurements (like belly fat or how defined your waist is). You are going to go crazy if you keep checking it everyday. Plus, controlling weight is a long-term project and results aren't... (more)
I have been keeps my carbs to under 50 for 2 weeks now, hoping to get close to ketosis. I decided to test myself, so I did a 48 hour fast, only water and tea, and I felt TERRIFIC the whole time, I thought i'd be weak and feel terrible, but I was... (more)
Through experimenting I've pretty much ruled out the fact that dairy is causing me to breakout. Normally I have clear skin but I would say once every few months or so there will be a whole day where I eat pretty badly, like a really busy day... (more)
What are some funny reactions you've gotten when people see your meals or when you try to explain what paleo is? My coworkers favorite thing to do is say, "cavemen" didn't do this or that whatever it is I might be doing. Or try to convince me... (more)
