I’m struggling with binge eating and I’m wondering if anyone has any advice on how to deal with it. For background I’m in my late 20s and follow the primal diet, although not always rigidly. In my past I’ve struggled with eating disorders-... (more)
There have been some issues with Berkey filters - including in 2010/2011 some that people wanted recalled. They are manufactured in China and/or Korea. Any personal experience or what would you suggest? ... (more)
I have been strict paleo for 12 months now and i have chronic bloating with alternating bowel movements. The bloating has just gotten worse and worse and i have had mutliple stool tests that have all come back negative. No candida, parasties or... (more)
Hi all!I've found some grass fed butter in the fridge and it is sour and a year passed the date.I thought even if the proteins and lactose is spoiled, the saturated fat should be fine. When making ghee you separate the saturated fat from the... (more)
Hey Guys! So I weight train about 4-5 days a week, and have been sticking to a ketogenic diet for a little while. A couple months back, I would stay in ketosis and have a carb refeed 1 day a week, but now im sticking to a high fat, moderate... (more)
Some of the answers to this paleohacks question creaky-knees-night-blindness-what-am-i-missing got me thinking about night blindness. Have you had it? If so, please tell me about your experiences with night blindness. Did you fix it,... (more)
Have any vasomotor rhinitis (chronic non-allergenic runny nose) sufferers manage to ???cure??? themselves via food elimination (...i hope so). I have had a runny nose (clear liquid/mucous) for as long as i can remember (all my life), no matter... (more)
Have you explored Histamine Intolerance?
I have been reading about inflammation raising ferritin levels. Which made me think, even if your tested ferritin level comes back as a good number, could it still be possible that it is actually at a ???good??? level due to it being raised by... (more)
From what i have read previously it seemed omega 3 foods (fish etc) was a good source of food, but after reading these studies it suggest otherwise unless i haven't understood them correctly. I'm just wondering is someone who understand how... (more)
hello! I am brand new to paleo, as in I ate a paleo dinner last night & now my breakfast this morning. Could you tell me if I'm following the guidelines well? For breakfast I had four eggs cooked in coconut oil and a cup and a half of... (more)
I noticed that people that eat a diet high in red meat look much older than what their age is. They gray and wrinkle faster and have big pot bellies. I notice that populations that eat a more plant based diet of nuts, seeds, fruits, vegetables and... (more)
I think that, in general, high-meat eaters and SAD eaters get lumped together. Many of the plant eating populations who get written up frequently (ie. kitivans and obkinawans) tend to eat whole-food, VEGETABLE (not grain) based diets. Populations... (more)
Hello! I'm very confused about how to break the three day water fast I'm on. I've heard the more conventional idea that one should have only fruits/juices after a fast, as the digestive system starts to reboot. However, I've also heard that it... (more)
Hi I wonder if you know about studies comparing the effects of Paleo diet with other healthy, non Paleo diets. For instance traditional Maasai diet consisted (exclusively in the case of young males) of meat and dairy products, and those young... (more)
Why aren't sweet potatoes paleo? Go read Catching Fire: How cooking made us human. Tubers are better for us than most vegetables... Masai are raw milk. Milk is the only non "paleo" item here. Yet I'd wager to say most of us use real butter here.... (more)
I've just restarted lifting weights after a five month hiatus or so, and want to know if everyone thinks that bicycling at least 20km or so a day is going to be detrimental to both building muscle and recovery. Last year I was following... (more)
Hello Paleo People, I'm looking for a recipe for icecream as this is my first summer going dairy-free. On top of the usual Paleo restrictions, however, I also have to avoid coconut and nuts (incl. almond milk) as well as bananas. This makes having... (more)
I think I might have this! My skin looks red and uneven a lot of the time. I feel my skin burning (face mainly) when I eat a lot of things like any fermented food and others. Has anyone else experienced this?
Been eating Paleo pretty strict for the past 6 months. Drinking homeade kefir for the past month (saw the most improvements here, acne going away, energy levels rising, better sleep and digestion..ect). I have noticed that some days I just feel a... (more)
Chris Kresser, on his 11/1/2011 podcast (link starting at 44:40 or so) suggested that you could cure or at least mitigate FODMAP intolerance. Quote: FODMAP intolerance is a sign of a deeper issue. I think it's probably a consequence of... (more)
Dried beans have been dated to at least 7500BC. I am not bothered by them as some are. I doubt that many get to 100% Paleo - and I presume it’s impossible since so many foods are not clearly Paleo or not Paleo. SO - does anyone see any real harm... (more)
Is this even possible? Coconut products don't really seem to agree with me all too well, and was wondering if there was a good alternative? I like olive oil, but the ratio is a bit off. I was thinking about macadamia nut oil? Where to purchase... (more)
agree with April. If you want to go for minimal PUFA. coconut is unbeatable at 3%. Also high oleic sunflower oil should be added to her list as its fat spectrum is very very close to safflower.
