Just poured out an expired bottle of pedialyte. I'm getting tired of pouring this stuff out, especially since it's not natural. I'm wondering if kids even need this stuff. If so, is there a way I can make my own as-needed? Thanks!
So I have made a weird observation lately. At my globo gym, I have noticed most men and especially women wear gloves when they weight train. I don't know any of then well enough yet to ask them why they do this. I wonder if they are afraid of... (more)
Would not be caught dead in a pair of those gloves. Only reason you should wear them is if you desire to be dainty and don't want to get a run in your panty hose.
This is my all-time favorite quote! and the other day after my yoga class, I enjoyed a conversation w' a fellow yogi who told me her dietician told her "Fat doesn't make you fat". I applauded. Love this quote! Could hear it daily and never get... (more)
Don't get me wrong; I'm a huge coffee fan. But it seems that time and time again, we hear about the awesome health benefits of drinking coffee, such as this: http://abcnews.go.com/Health/ProstateCancer/cups-java-day-cancer/story?id=13624057 The... (more)
People like good news about their bad habits. Coffee is hilarious. To anybody here who drinks it, why exactly do you? Just wondering. Maybe you could change my mind.
A question: what is the optimal dose of Vitamin C per day? Currently I am taking 2x500mg. tablets but would prefer to jettison the pills and replace them with adequate amounts of natural substances(no fruit or starchy carb sources ideally). ANy... (more)
I can't answer the dosage question but a good source of vitamin C is fermented sauerkraut (not vinegar-made). It's my understanding that sea travelers would bring barrels of sauerkraut and eat it daily to prevent scurvy.
Hello everyone, I have been IF this week and I wonder if anyone has day off tips as far as food recommendations. I have noticed I feel sick when eating heavy foods (beef, pork) but I need the high fats and protein to keep me going during my fasts. (more)
Finding the best information about the paleo lifestyle can be difficult, with over 2 million hits on Google for "Paleo diet" alone. Add the information on fasting and exercise and it's clearly overwhelming. Could we do a quick poll and vote on... (more)
Is anyone here taking antiglycation supplements like L-Carnosine, benfotiamine, pyridoxamine (still have a stash but FDA has banned its over the counter sale), and lipoic acid (r-lipoic or alpha lipoic)? The carnosine is also supposed to inhibit... (more)
I think the most effective strategy against glycation is to avoid fructose and PUFAs, and keep blood sugar from spiking by lowering total glucose loads. I don't think we have a supplement that will be as effective as this.
I know that pulling all nighters is bad, but it is something that I have to do every once in a while. So, given that it's a necessity, how can I minimize the damage? Here are some initial ideas: BCAAs to protect lean body mass. Omega 3 to... (more)

While reading Paul's newest post on endurance exercise and cancer, someone in the comments posted the dietary menu of elite cyclists from the Tour de France (here: http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2/story?page=stein/090701). An elite cyclist's... (more)
So I have been paleo for around a year and noticed countless improvements in all aspects of life. My question is this.. My father is Paraplegic, disabled from the waist. Full use of upper body and with a good quality of life in regards to... (more)

Hi guys,from Greece! I have started eating paleoish but I want to go full time for various reasons one of which is losing wieght and minimizing the risk of t2 diabetes that runs in my family. I am 22 years old male,1,78 meters in height and 118 kg... (more)
Just checked in with Don's Primal Wisdom blog and it seems he is disavowing himself of, well, everything. Fat now makes you fat. The lines of evidence being, apparently, a figurine depicting a fat woman, a rat study from 1946, and, of course, "The... (more)
I have cortisol issues. Sleep helps. Sex is relaxing. So, which is more important? I'm not in realtionship, so times there are sex are random and unpredictable. But, on those nights, I generally get little sleep before having to go to work. ... (more)
Ok, so the idea of pizza is not inherently very paleo. But some dinner ideas die hard. I gave up on trying to make good replacement bread pretty early on. But pizza...I'm still trying to make it work. Someone recently asked me to post the recipe... (more)
Diced cauliflower, mozzarella cheese, and one egg. Baked with no toppings at 350 for 12-15 min to make the crust, well, crusty. Add the toppings and return to oven for 10 min or until all items are sizzling or browned.
One incredibly awesome thing about eating Paleo is that, once your senses of smell and taste come back online, genuinely healthy food tastes good. "Health food" has lost all connotation of "tastes like cardboard" and now conjures images of... (more)
After a nice weight-loss of 20 kg in 10 months, I stopped losing significant weight. It's been 5 months now and the scale shows no more success - and there is definitely more to lose! My Gynaecologist says it's because I've entered menopause.... (more)
