I've been good about strictly taking in 0 calories during my intermittent fasting, but recently, I've decided to embark upon 1 full-day fast every week. Unfortunately, I've also been turned on to the idea of "superfoods"--namely, cacao, bee... (more)
I really appreciate all your guys' answers. Some thoughts: Dave Asprey (@bulletproofexec) had a shaman on his podcast last week that said coffee taken in a detoxed state commonly achieved through intermittent fasting can open neural pathways... (more)
My diet currently consists of mainly eggs, meat, and fish for protein and fat... carbs from sweet potato, pumpkin, and squashes... I also drink bone broth everyday. Although this diet gives me incredible energy, I have had problems with... (more)
Supplementing is one of the hot button issues of Paleo. From what I have read, the general consensus is that some need it more than others to heal from SAD or to be more "Optimal". So with that in mind what "Food Supplement" do you take to try... (more)
WAP recently posted a link to an article from The Autism File about research using camel milk as a treatment for autism. There are interviews with the doctors in which they suggest that part of the reason they see improvement in Autism symptoms is... (more)
Are you familiar with the GAPS Diet? The author claims to have healed her son's Autism through dietary changes. She does consider Autism as related to inflammation, particularly through the gut flora.
Hate to use the word superfood, but in this context I'm talkin about non-fruit & non-seed superfoods, suchs as spirulina, chlorella, maca, ashwagandha and other powders. For example, a teaspoon (7 grams) of maca contains about 5 grams of... (more)
We hear a lot in the media about this or that being the lastest 'superfood.' Soy is a classic case. However, on inspection, many of these foods do not turn out to be so super after all. Case in point, someone was recently touting purslane (a... (more)
I am interested in consuming matcha green tea because of its health benefits. Am I required to prepare it in boiling water per the can instructions, or may I simply eat it straight out of the can uncooked?
You can consume it raw. I make a pudding from mashed avocados, raw cacao powder, maca powder, honey/Yacon syrup, and matcha powder. That's a whole feast of antioxidants right there.
Hi folks I am pretty thin and trying to go paleo. I eat a fair amount of fat / protein and I never limit my food intake. However I need to eat a bit every hour or two! I also keep getting carb and sugar cravings and when I an too hungry I just... (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 was watching sesame street with my son and it was an episode on super foods. The puppets displaying super foods were broccoli, cheese, banana, and a piece of whole wheat bread. It was all I could do to shut it off, but my son is only 3 and I'm... (more)
For sure on the organs. I would think.. sardines, mackerel, salmon, herring for the Omega 3's and the little bones for calcium. Greens such as kale and spinach - magnesium! Bone stock for the vitamins and the resulting gelatin. Berries. Avocado.... (more)
I recently ran across a local product called Anderssen's Life Flax Rolls and was intrigued as we are really trying to up our Omega 3s. We are Paleo about 95% of the time and try to make as most of our food from scratch. Its ski season though and I... (more)
Kale is one for me. I eat it every day and feel like I wouldn't be as strong without it. I also need my two eggs yolks/day, and lately a pint of bone broth. I know it is mostly psychological and no doubt related to some fallacious magic-bullet... (more)
