The Quilt Questions
Been paleo for years now. Aside from dairy ( which I have dropped completely several months ago) I am 99.9% strict. Probiotics, magnesium, intermittent fasting every day. I sit at 6-7% body fat. I cold adapted myself when Jack Kruse came out with... (more)
OK, people, a simple one (in terms of the question, at least): Hack Epi-Paleo! What does it mean to you? Is it the next chapter in paleo - or just more hype?
Want to have your question closed as 'argumentative' and/or 'subjective'? Simple. Mention - in a non-fawning/sycophantic way - Jack Kruse or Jimmy Moore. PH mods will be on it like white on rice (good thing it's a safe starch). What are they... (more)
I realize that a lot of people will groan at the sight of another Kruse question, but I think this might be important information to share. Today Carbsane posted a blurb from the American Assoc. of Neurological Surgeons website. It's about Dr.... (more)
"Gurus" should be held to NO standard. If your dumb enough to follow someone blindly you deserve what you get. As to his status as an MD, its up to his peers and state association to monitor his behavior in the clinical respect....
Dr. Kruse mentions that the CT reduces fat all over, but other experts say that it will increase subcutaneous fat. What say you?
Paleo2.0 brought this up as a comment in another question. Is everything that Dr. Kruse has to say about leptin wrong? What has Dr. Kruse said that is correct? Citations would be helpful for many reading here.
So, should Jack Kronk take K2? How much? Has he been doing it? Has it helped? http://jackkruse.com/osteoporosis-part-one/#comment-10032 "@Jeff It depends upon our guts. Think about our friend Jack Kronk on PH. He is a perfect example of a... (more)
I'm about to embark headfirst into Dr. K's leptin reset due to the fact that I've been steadily gaining weight and exhibit many of the LR symptoms. I have PCOS and am probably insulin resistant. My basic take on the leptin reset is that if you... (more)
Sorry for the title of this post...it's been a long day. I am wondering if any here have tried Dr. K's leptin resistance re-set protocol with good results? Do tell us what you have experienced. Leptin Rx blog: ... (more)
PQQ is pyrroloquinoline quinone, a vitamin discovered in 1979 - anyone taking it as a supplement? It appears to increase biogenesis of mitochondria, which could be a good thing for people that have damaged mitochondria. Doesn't seem to be a hot... (more)
If I understand Dr. K's blog post below, that is what he is asserting: http://jackkruse.com/gnolls-com-opens-the-door-to-obesity-fight/ It seems plausible, and of course as a T2, I'm very interested... Any papers that support this? (Wow, Dr K.... (more)
How long does it take before you see weight loss? How long does it take before there are signs of becomeing leptin sensitive? Are you seeing results? Side effects?
*"...focus on becoming leptin sensitive by eating 50 grams of protein at breakfast everyday within 30 minutes of rising..."* The Quilt Since many have been discussing The Quilt's recommendations for overcoming leptin resistance, I would love to... (more)
(I used Google translate for that, so please don't yell at me if that's not the word for "quilt") Dr. K, I notice you prescribe coconut oil for...well everything. I'm currently doing a keto-diet to help with GERD/possible eosinophilic... (more)
Hi all, If this is an inappropriate question to ask, please delete it. I'm still trying to get the hang of this place. I made a comment in one thread regarding Jimmy Moore's business interests and his recent switch to LC Paleo. This was in the... (more)
So far I've found the ADD-related content on Paleohacks to be pretty disappointing. I've thus been independently researching ADD and its potential relationship to diet and lifestyle. I've wondered on PH if persons with ADD who take stimulants... (more)
My daughter has ADHD(so does my husband, but he won't stick with my treatment plan!). I am a nutritional therapist, and have studied with Julia Ross(The Mood Cure and The Diet Cure). My daughter's symptoms improved DRAMATICALLY when I got her on... (more)
http://jackkruse.com/jacks-blog/ I have read several of his articles. I particularly like the one on Leptin part deux.... The Liver. I think it's cool to see a qualified Doc step up and dig into the nitty gritty that most are unwilling to do.... (more)
Our favorite Dr. Quilt had an interesting post on his blog today, and included some radical ideas on the causes and role of diabetes. He is hinting at the idea that it is not a disease. What do you think about... (more)
It would be helpful to write out the argument, since it is very hard to follow in the first place and has questionable assumptions right out of the gate. There is absolutely no evidence that hibernation is an ancestral characteristic in the... (more)
A while ago I came across a hack about low carb flu where someone (I think it was the Quilt) recommended 5-htp to relieve the symptoms. I'm sorry I can't find the actual question, his answer may very well have been a comment within an answer and... (more)
Because going low carb will limit your serotonin production. Taking 5-htp will promote serotonin recycling while you get used to low serotonin levels.
Hey Hackers! Just wanted to let you know that Dr. Kruse and I are going on the air in just a bit. Here's the link --> http://www.blogtalkradio.com/undergroundwellness/2012/03/09/dr-jack-kruse If you have questions for the doc, dial... (more)
http://jackkruse.com/so-you-completed-the-leptin-rx-what-is-next/#comments The Quilt has finally given us what we were begging for--a template for how to eat, exercise, think, and live once fully leptin sensitive. I could tweak a few small... (more)
