Hey!I just wonder if anyone of you is doing martial arts while being paleo(ish). I train every day except Fridays and Sundays, but I'm still doing some light conditioning on my days off. My MT workouts are anywhere between one and three hours in a... (more)

I know dried fruits are usually frowned upon in the paleo community because of the high sugar and low water content. Usually, whenever I eat any type of dried fruit I get really thirsty really fast, and I get a little sugar rush as well. Dates... (more)
After being promised a raise that has not come through, I am having to reexamine our food budget. My Aunt is trying to be helpful, and proposed a drastic, 30 day beans and rice diet (now, I'm being literal here. She means 30 days, buy nothing... (more)
I've noticed that many older Chinese and Indian women have hair loss or female pattern baldness. If you look closely, most Asian and Indian women over 40 have some degree of balding. Usually, Asian women have hair loss on the top of their head,... (more)
No one can deny that Paleo monks are healthy, and not few reach the hundred years or at least get very old, but still are very active and healthy. Well, but they are mostly vegans, but always vegetarians, as one part of their "Dharma" ist to... (more)
I'm on a serious budget now but have been paleo for awhile, not for weight loss or gut trouble, just to be healthy. Incidentally I've been low carb and don't mean to be, nor do I really want to be constantly low carb, so is it okay if I begin... (more)
Usually by Monday, we run out of delicious meat/fish/eggs. So we eat tofu for dinner. Is it okay for once a week? And also, is it okay to eat rice a little everyday? It's like 80/20. What do you think?
I purchase a bathing soap that contains rice bran oil. I know to avoid rice bran oil for cooking and eating purposes, but what do you think about it as an ingredient in bar soap. Should I still stay away? I know it has high PUFA levels. Thoughts? (more)
Rather than 'not ideal' for you? My family can't stand most green, leafy veggies unless they're done 100% 'right,' and I get tired of tossing out good broccoli. They eat enriched white rice probably 1x a day, which obviously provides some... (more)
A bottle of red-colored Mrs. Dash seasoning I have has rice extract listed as the last ingredient on the back. My suspicion was that this was a code term for MSG, but a google search came up with nothing. Any ideas on why this is in the... (more)
I've started to incorporate soaked brown rice into my arsenal. My carb intake is on the higher side (feel best with atleast 2-3 servings of starch/day) .At 2mg per cup of brown rice and the tolerable upper limit at 11mg, you throw in some seafood... (more)
Hi How can I tell whether it would be safe to reintroduce rice into my diet? When I began Paleo I assumed it was off limits but some recent internet surfing produced results that some believe it to be a safe starch? What can I look for to see if... (more)
Rice is questioned quite a bit in Paleo. A friend of mine is going to be adopting a "strict Paleo" diet as part of a Crossfit program, so I decided to prepare some notes regarding the rice issue. Since we both love eating Asian food (especially... (more)
I usually don't eat rice but I am needing to safe money and I find myself eating to much sugar (from fruits) so I am trying to get away from that. Also Is oatmeal worse or better than rice IF you had to choose from either ? Paleo Daddy on a budget... (more)
All the supermarkets don't seem to stock it because it's so 'unhealthy', where can I buy some?? So it turns out long grain (that word threw me) rice and basmati rice are white rice. I didn't know that. That's why I asked the question. Sorry if I... (more)
I'm am considering starting an autoimmune protocol, would i need to exclude rice. I can't seem to find a answer to this elsewhere. I have no bad reactions to starch as far as i can tell.
I eat a bowl of white rice occasionally as part of a post-workout meal. I have some bone stock, and I substituted water with it in my rice cooker. After it was done cooking, it stuck to the bottom. Any tips on how to avoid sticking? Should I... (more)
If you are a rice-eater, which one is better, white rice or brown rice? I was just wondering because I read somewhere that brown rice is worse because it's covered with a whole grain. Is it true that the outer covering is a grain?
Thriving Asian countries have eaten white rice for a long time. I heard the outer part is fed to the chickens. Brown rice is a new "health food." Avoid it. Also, Mark Sisson says wild rice is okay in moderation.
In my opinion, the "all grains are evil and toxic" mantra is a major fault of paleo. But, that's what makes it paleo- eliminating grains. So, if you're not doign that then technically you can't call yourself paleo. The reason I think it's stupid... (more)
SO I keep hearing that a lot of rice has arsenic in it and that some types are better than others. Every time I walk in to a grocery store I get bombarded by all these brands emphasizing some different detail, so I was wondering if anyone had a... (more)
I know a good amount of paleo people accept white rice as a safe starch because it is purely that, a starch. What about cream of rice? I got it from the store and the only ingredient is granulated rice, so just from that it seems like it is fine.... (more)
