Hello, I am aware of people using myfitnesspal, apps, and websites to track their rough intake as a whole. My problem is how do you know what grams of protein,fat and carbs look like on a plate? So lets say I need 95 total grams of... (more)

Hi One thing I like about the posts here are the scientific explanations behind some answers; however things like cortisol, HDLP etc. leaves me, the uninitiated, left confused. Are there any sites out there that can easily bring myself into this... (more)
I was recently investigating chlorella as a possible food source. The science behind it looked promising, initially. Lots of pubmed studies claiming an array of health benefits. NASA was studying this as a food source for astronauts, Russians used... (more)
My gramma (bless her) used to have me drip hyrdogen peroxide in my ears and let it fizz away at the first sign of a cold. It always seemed to do the trick. I have begun doing this again recently but am plagued by the thought that it could be a... (more)
I've read a few FAQs and lengthy explanations on paleo, but I don't know enough to understand how this study fits in or contradicts paleo. When I first read the headline, I thought 'So? Eating more fatty food isn't a bad thing at all.' But as the... (more)
I'm not reading the study, but the first question I always ask is: what were they feeding the mice? Specifically? Did they offer pure fat, fat with meat (unlikely), fat with vegetables, or fat in the form of some sort of refined carb-laden food?... (more)
So this interview by Sean Croxton of Dr Thomas O'Bryan was very interesting and I would love to believe everything he says. So I'm looking for research that backs up these claims: Autoimmunity needs this trilogy to develop: Genetic... (more)
What are valid criticisms of the paleo diet? Scientific, economic, ethical... the gamut. And by paleo I mean the umbrella term that includes Weston A Price, Primal, Perfect Health Diet, GAPS etc etc.

This is an exact duplicate of this question, asked and answered in great detail one month ago: http://paleohacks.com/questions/110169/new-study-effects-of-n6-pufas-compared-with-sfas Someone should close this as an exact duplicate. (I can't, as... (more)
Do you ever have moments where you think that this diet might be wrong? That saturated fat IS bad for you? (as the NHS tells me it is and even some parts of the paleo community do too) or that grains ARE healthy? When you look at vegetarian... (more)
I caught this post by Michael Ruhlman today: http://ruhlman.com/2012/04/food-facism/ He seems to try to make a distinction between those with allergies versus intolerances, and those who keep their diets to themselves versus those who... (more)
So I'm looking for more books. Paleo/nutrition books. Like I always am. I loved Good Calories, Bad Calories by Taubes, I loved Robb's Paleo Solution, and I'm looking for more. Specifically though, I want to find some that go into the science... (more)

I was reading my blog feed this morning, and this image came across from one the atheist / skeptic blogs I follow: Now, I definitely feel there's a lot of pseudoscience out there (sadly, sometimes espoused here on PH). When I read the right... (more)
Just a quick question... I think the years I spent suffering every Gluten related issue helped "sink the Paleo hook deeper" than if I'd never been ignored, humiliated, and chastised by those MDs practicing CW. However, I am also fascinated by the... (more)
I have some scientist friends complaining about how "anecdotal" all this paleo stuff is. I'm looking for the Top 5 most persuasive, well researched papers out there. I'm sick of nit picking with these guys over email. I just want to go "blam"... (more)
I'm wondering what the best science books on "paleo" are. I liked Paleo Solution but wished it went into much more detail about the science of why grain is bad, soy is bad, and why meat is good.
I thought Primal Body, Primal Mind by Nora Gedgaudas gave awesome explanations on all of that... I wouldn't really consider it "science heavy," but the scientific information in it is still really valuable.
I was reading Stepahnie Seneff's article for the WAPF quarterly magazine about sulfur deficiency. In the article (which is a must read once it gets online), she points out that the biochemical reactions of cholesterol sulfate and vitamin D3... (more)
I'm sure people have responded to this study. If you know and can send me to a link, that would be great. I was listening to an old podcast this morning where I heard about this report for the first time:... (more)

Preface: I have happily eaten Paleo for 2 months and plan to continue doing so... However... There are 8 "modern" studies from 2008 to 2010 listed on the Wikipedia article titled Saturated fat and cardiovascular disease controversy. Two of the... (more)
All sat fat studies are confounded with PUFA's wheat and carbs.....therefore they are worthless studies. Next.
I have a problem with overeating. The last time that I needed to stop doing something related to food, I loaded up on info related to why it's bad for me and I quit eating it (Kurt Harris explained eloquently exactly why fruit should be minimized... (more)
