Are there any studies on the body's transition to saturated fat? Someone on here mentioned that the body replaces PUFA, and possibly trans fats, with saturated fat where saturated fat should ideally be.
Hi! I've had Type 1 Diabetes for almost 4 years now. I've really struggled with this disease and so I've researched anything I've come across that could be beneficial to me regarding Diabetes. Last year I found the paleo/primal approach. It just... (more)
The book "Practical Paleo" pushes getting away from eating lots of little meals/snacks towards eating larger meals of breakfast, lunch and dinner. I used to eat that way (3 square meals, never snacks) years ago until I got IBS. Then (based on... (more)
Hello! I am 33 y/o married female, about 135 lbs (no kids). I would like to lose 10-15 lb, but mostly get my energy back. I have a heart condition (replaced pulmonary valve) so I wear out pretty easily, since I am not getting 100% oxygen to start... (more)
Hi. Can white rice give you acne if consumed and eaten with fiber, good fats, and protein? This apparently can lower the insulin spike greatly? Secondly, I have been paleo for three weeks coming from a vegetarian diet of mostly legumes and brown... (more)
I'm doing pretty good with eliminating soy and dairy, and am on the fence about legumes since Archevore is looking pretty appealing as a starting place for me. Wheat and grains are right now the most difficult transition for me. I've severely cut... (more)
My question is - what resources/model of paleo/primal, etc. might be best for me to start with? I have been to a number of paleo/primal websites (Robb Wolf, PaleoParents, Cordain, Whole 9, Mark Sisson, No Meat Athlete, Tim Ferriss and others) and... (more)
About three months ago my 72lb lab was diagnosed with diabetes. We tried the cheaper Science diet but his blood glucose didn't do well on it. Then switched permanently to Royal Canin HF which is their dry diabetic food. We feed him 2.5 cups twice... (more)
My sis's ulcer has acted up severely since transitioning to strict paleo from a diet of mostly sugar and french fries. She's at the point now where any food is causing stomach pain/nausea, and feels she must try some starchy foods again to get... (more)
Bottom line, I'm doing paleo and I'm losing weight rapidly but feel terrible and I'm extremely irritable with friends and family. By terrible I mean: constant hunger and distracting cravings, inability to concentrate, sleepiness, shakiness and... (more)
As the title says, I got a live-in nanny job for a 7 year old girl, single mom situation (saving up to move to california, finish school, and start my own paleo practice yeahhh!) The mom was happy I'm studying nutrition and love to cook, I... (more)
Clearly, there are many societies, including most Western developed nations, that have suffered poorer health due to wheat, added fructose, and vegetable oil. But what specific examples do we have about the actual transitions? Taubes cites the... (more)
Since I gave up eating paleo last week and have re-introduced wheat,sugar,etc. I feel I can go longer without eating than when I was trying paleo. Also, I can eat smaller portions and not feel so bloated. When I was doing paleo, I had to gorge... (more)
Hej Folks, i just got a newsletter from frederic patenaude. He is a raw vegan advocate, with focus on a low fat diet. So in the whole thing different than paleo. I dont wanna bash anyone or any diet. More this is a text, or some ideas of someone... (more)
I had a lot of these symptoms. His solutions for them are idiotic though. Geez, if only some pathetic little flax and hemp seeds could have saved me! I was already eating those things + B12 supplements and they did nothing.
Actually Markus Rothkranz isnt Paleo. His Video and his promotion is a bit provocating and special. Playing with fear. So a reason for me to share this controversal guy. He self shows him as very healthy. He is anyway a interesting guy, some new... (more)
Wow, that might be the least legitimate website I've clicked on in a while (and I spend a lot of time on the internet). It's almost comically illegitimate in a self-parody sort of way.
Hej Paleo folks. Are there paleo people coming from a raw vegan background? Do you have raw vegan friends? What do you think on raw vegan lifestly and diet? For whom is Paleo, for whom is raw food? Did you learn something from a raw vegan Diet?... (more)
For almost two years after seeing Kris Carr's Crazy Sexy Cancer documentary and reading her blog, I really into the raw food movement. There were entire weeks where I only ate raw fruits and veggies. And gained weight and anxiety, go figure, from... (more)
The low carb flu, caffeine withdrawal, sugar withdrawal, constipation, cravings, depression, etc. Some people experience side effects when transitioning to paleo. Are there ways to make this easier, less painful and less stressful for newbies? ... (more)
I have a friend that seems curious about going Paleo, especially since I mentioned that some people seem to find that their allergies improve after switching. She also suffers from asthma, which appears to be an inflammatory response. As run-away... (more)
Hi everyone. I'm a paleo-curious ex-vegan who had been kind of "flexitarianism"-ing it for the past year. Typically, I wake up extremely hungry and am totally non-functional until I eat. Then, throughout the day, I typically get hungry every 4... (more)
A very close friend eats grains/carbs at the moment and is on a very tight budget (~$85-110 a month for food), sometimes with limited access to cooking. While they've expressed wishes to transition to Paleo/primal/ancient-type diet, right now,... (more)
Hey guys- I just started paleo 4 days ago. I've been eating a lot of meat, eggs, fruit, and nuts, and still trying to find ways to integrate vegetables into my diet every day. Up until I started, I was eating pretty badly but trying to wean... (more)
Didn't bother me at all in the first week. Stay tuned. You might have no withdrawal symptoms, or you might have them later.
Hi everyone, I've been eating a paleo diet (plus heavy cream) for about 6 days now. I am very much in the "low-carb flu" stage at the moment - my previous diet consisting of mainly vegetarian food with lots of grains. I go rock climbing and... (more)
I remember how wasted I was when I went through that. Your body is adapting to a new fuel source right now ... give it a break and take a week or two off the other work you usually give it.
I looked around the site and couldn't find the specifics of what's actually going on when someone feels crappy transitioning from SAD to a real food diet. Is it sugar withdrawal symptoms, burning more fat and less carbs for energy, microorganism... (more)
My husband is a very picky eater and our daughter takes after him. He says it's a texture thing more than it is a taste thing. Up until now I've been able to get away with making foods from his country (Spain) using rice and lentils so I can get... (more)
