So, I hit the broth pretty hard for a few weeks, and then went out for a pizza night with some friends and much to my surprise I didn't "pay for it" in the way I usually do. Is that an indication that my gut has healed, or just a lucky coincidence? (more)

Sounds like a healthy/healing gut to me. Bone broth or simply minimizing exposure over time? I'd guess the latter.

Yep because to me being 100% paleo means eating 90% perfectly and spending the other 10% enjoying the hell out of your own life. Win/win!

I see a lot of Paleo recipes using Coconut products in their cooking. I've read recent research indicating that the saturated fats in coconut are at least not unhealthy since they aren't hydrogenated, which is what the studies in the 80s were... (more)

Okay, I think there is a little bit of confusion here about hydrogenated fats and the oxidization of fats. Exposing an oil or fat / lipid to heat can cause it to oxidize, depending on the heat and the fat. Mono-saturated and poly-saturated fats... (more)
