I'm a recovering anorexic, so I eat a LOT. My favorite foods to gain weight nuts/trail mix. I have difficulty eating during the day because of my messed up, disordered eating, so I eat most of my caloric intake in one gulp (not literally, but you... (more)
I'm an 18 year old active female student and have been mostly paleo (exceptions of potatoes, quinoa, and some legumes) for about one year. I've felt amazing, better than I knew was possible. However, since I'm young and have a fast metabolism... (more)
I have been drinking Bulletproof coffee (Coffee blended with grass-fed butter and MCT oil) almost everyday for some time now, and I have been noticing small bumps on the back of my arms and back that show after I drink it, or other foods that I... (more)
Using the Whole30 ideology...remove the food for 30 days then bring back in. You have to keep your diet very strict with this to determine that the item removed/added is the actual offender. Good luck!
I have been looking for a solution, but I can't find anything online to help him. If I defrost some meat and then decide I don't want to cook it yet and refreeze it, when I defrost it again and cook it, it makes him sick. Same with defrosting... (more)
Can you "sensitize" yourself to gluten by strictly avoiding it for a period of time? I guess this is where people will say things like you shouldn't periodically smoke cigarettes just so your body is used to them. However, I have a very... (more)
I apologize in advance if this is a previously asked question. I tried searching here on Paleohacks for MCS, chemical sensitivities, etc. but wasn't able to locate any similar posts. I also haven't been able to find much in the way of blog posts... (more)
So, was hoping to start a list of all known supplements, foods, activities, and techniques to increases insulin sensitivity. Fire away.
I've noticed hat I am a lot more sensitive to certain foods since cutting out grains- like i feel sick to my stomach if I eat bread or a bite of someones burger.. But lately I have had a big problem with milk. I have always been lactose... (more)
I am having sensitive skin on my palms and fingers of both hand and foot .The difficulty is that when I am consistent with water for more than a minute the outer layer of skin starts getting teared from the rest and gets extremely dry.Can I know... (more)
Straightforward question. Ideas? Research?
I've read in several posts here that in ketosis, the muscles become insulin resistant to spare glucose for the brain. I've also read that prolonged ketogenic diets increase insulin resistance. I've also read that such diets are good for... (more)
I've been drinking coffee/tea/energy drinks for years and usually have 3 cups of coffee in the morning and 2 cans of Monster Rehab throughout the day. These have no effect on me whatsoever and totals about 800mg of caffeine per day. I want to know... (more)
If you want any sort of 'normalization' you have to stop taking in caffeine, probably for at least 30 days, and then reintroduce it in small amounts to see if you've become more sensitive.
Hi, since olive oil, coconut oil, almonds etc. give me diarrhea, I thought about having a salicylate sensitivity. Red palm oil seems to be a decent substitude for coconut oil (due to MCTs) but I'm really unsure about how much salicylate it... (more)
I am not talking about allergies, but about milder food intolerance. How do people approach this to quantify and measure it? I have read that most serum lab blood tests are useless. Prick tests? Elimination and reintroduction seems to be the... (more)
An allergy is to a protein, a sensitivity or intolerance is referring to a non-protein food issue. My strongly preferred method to determine these in a body is elimination and reintroduction of potentially offending foods. I've seen wrong... (more)
A couple days ago, my lower right teeth have started hurting. I think it may be the gums. Either way, it hurts to chew on that side. I don't think it's a cavity; just sensitivity. I've never experienced this before. My meals are very meat-heavy so... (more)
I have been trying to understand the possible ill effects of Tannins, but having some trouble pinning down "typical" symptoms. It seems like there isn't a ton of information online... Aside from a concentration of info on Tannins and headaches/... (more)
What is the sensitivity people have with red meat? I occasionally hear people say they were 'having health problems so they cut out red meat' or that they 'ony eat fish or chicken but no red meat'. Does anyone know the science behind this?
There's all the classic food sensitivities: wheat, legumes, and dairy. Cordain would also throw eggs into that mix. My assumption has been that I have those three for sure (I didn't assume cheese and peanut butter at first but then my body... (more)
Ignorant Medical Professionals really twist my gut, does that count? Grain fed heavy cream causes a tightness in my throat, raw grassfed cream does not. Larger quantities of corn will cause gastrointestinal distress as well.
I have recently cut out dairy to see if that will help my chronic nasal congestion/drip. So far, it seems to be slowly clearing up. I'm going to miss cheese (I make one helluva primal lasagna using spaghetti squash), although I've found coconut... (more)
Hello! So I'm new to the Paleo/Primal (mostly following the Primal Blueprint book) lifestyle and have only been at it for a few weeks. I started a complete dietary change about a month ago when I decided to go wheat/gluten free after stumbling... (more)
I just did a month-long gluten fast followed by a series of double-blind exposures, and the result seems to be that stopping or starting gluten has no effect on my mood, energy, cognition, or physical health. But lately I've seen some people... (more)
Hi there, Before discussing the joint pain, here's a quick background. I was/am the definition of morbidly obese. I was 282 pounds at the start and 5'10. I also had severe IBS and chronic acid reflux. Additionally, I had suffered from viral... (more)
So, I've been in Taiwan for two weeks and because of travels (and my conscious desire to use this special time to test a reintroduction of gluten), I've found out that I don't react at all to gluten. Prior to these travels, I had been strictly... (more)
Hello Everyone. I started eating a Paleo diet four weeks ago after reading about it online and becoming curious to try. I am actually very proud of myself for removing refined sugars, refined carbohydrates, gluten, food additives and... (more)
Yes, mostly because I am lower carb than I used to be. Starchy carbs slow the absorption of alcohol. Not or me other than I am no longer taking daily medication to treat the symptoms.
