I know some people on here give some attention to Ray Peat's writings on gelatin, liver, and coconut oil. This documentary will be on some of his ideas along with a lot of other scientists' work. It's fascinating stuff that should get a chance to... (more)
Yeah they have 30k of the 38 k needed with 22 days to go on kickstarter. The videos on the website are really interesting.

- Food Tracking
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)
Hey, so after supplmenting with magnesium glycinate after a suggestion from someone on here (and having it relieve my muscle cramps almost entirely), I'm very interested in learning more about how and in what combinations vitamins and minerals... (more)
Hi all,(Please upvote if you find it interesting, this is am important question for me)Thank you for sharing it! Is there any scientific evidence to support the answer to this question?What of the following types of fasting should one do if he or... (more)
I'm not about to abandon PaleoHacks. I've learned much and benefited greatly from this community. The number of active members who truly understand the science of the body and diet is refreshing and stimulating. However, sometimes when my... (more)
I'm curious about paleo. The dietary recommendations make a lot of sense, but the link to human evolution seems more tenuous to me. Does the paleo diet stand or fall with claims about the way paleolithic humans ate/behaved? How does evolution... (more)
I decided a few months back to hit the gym and get back in shape. I started off eating food with a diet center which provided me a gluten free diet (I have celiac), which had a combination of protein, carbs, and fiber (not much fat). I was then... (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)
I came across this announcement: Link So is science catching up to Paleo? Also, I watched this: I, Caveman My questions: It seems that the mainstream science is very supportive of Paleo. At least the recent research. Why did it take so... (more)
Nothing. Science never has nor never will prove anything. There are people who have misapplied badly done science to create recommendations that are bad for people, but that's not science's fault.
I am student of the paleo science and lifestyle and read pretty much everything I come across. When people begun to harvest they become shorter, died sooner and so on. True! But once again, cause and correlation... Could it be that people become... (more)
My question is this: Based on scientific research and DIY biohackers are we reaching a upgraded paleo diet? A diet where we take the evolutionary biology of how we as humans process nutrition and tweak that to a superhuman advantage? Science is... (more)
I heard Morgan Freeman is much better, especially playing the Lydian mode.
**Science does not "prove" ANYTHING. That is NOT how it works. EDUCATE yourselves. Confront SHYSTER Anthony Colpo. DON'T buy his products. Only GULLIBLE, SCIENTIFICALLY ILLITERATE MORONS READ THESE INTERNET SHYSTERS. You people do not know... (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.
What are some topics specifically relating to obesity that need to be studied? What are examples of paleo "beliefs" that lack substantial evidence from controlled studies? Are any of our arguments prone to pseudoscience? I am asking these... (more)
Just had an interesting facebook "conversation" about gluten with a couple of chefs. The basis of one argument was that while gluten comes from wheat, barley, rye, etc..., it is only developed through kneading. I quote: "Kneading, develops... (more)

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'm pondering the health pros and cons of either 1) paleo with conventional meat/farmed fish, or 2) vegetarianism that excludes grains/seed oils/processed foods but includes traditionally prepared legumes, pastured eggs, and organic dairy... (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)
