I am trying a new, no fruit, vegetable or sugar version of paleo as a last desperate attempt at restoring my health. Although there are certainly health concerns that follow allong with it. I am only eating meat (lots of organ meat) and... (more)
I bought a new protein powder at Whole Foods - Organic Food Bar Vanilla Whey. It lists only 1.6 grams of carbs and 25g or protein per scoop. Since using it, I could tell that it didn't satiate me well and was causing blood sugar issues because... (more)
Hey everyone, so I've looked into metabolic typing and everything makes sense except how each metabolic type gains weight or how they are affected by high GI foods. So slow oxidizers don't really get blood sugar spikes no matter what they eat,... (more)
Over the last 6 weeks I've put on a massive amount of muscle (without steroids) with my weight only increasing a maximum of 5kg (and quickly returning to baseline). After thoroughly analysing my nutrient intake I realised I was on about... (more)
My question is about how the timing of the micronutrients would be best... I mostly kept it like the first combination in the title, carbs a.m, fats p.m. But i thought about it today, and noticed that it may be more beneficial to turn the... (more)
Heaps of information on how carbs are processed in the body; turned to sugar, stored as glycogen in the liver and muscles, stored as fat if we have too much glycogen in liver and muscles... But what about fat? What is the process there? Does it... (more)
I need to eat rice and potatoes to get enough carbs because I'm pretty active, but I really don't like high carb paleo at all. Can you give me an idea of how many carbs I need so I can fill in the rest of my diet with foods I like. I'm 5'4, 120... (more)
400,300,200...do whatever makes you excel and makes you feel good. I typically eat 250 grams but in the last couple weeks I have increased it to 400 grams. I play a lot of soccer which almost always depletes glycogen stores completely.
Hi my name is Lucas Richard. I am 22, 148.8 lbs (in the morning after urinating), 12% body fat (though there is discrepency; one machine says 12%, one 14%, and the caliper say 17% (if you saw me you'd know that isnt accurate-I've lost 100lbs and... (more)
Since i started eating paleo i have been feeling great! Although, something interesting has happened. i can no longer eat carbs in the for of pizza or quesadillas or chips without getting sick now. does anyone else experience that?
There are so many variables at play that I don't even know where to begin. I've tried sticking to low-carb primal, but have had so much trouble focusing, being alert, happy, etc. I want to lose body fat, so I want to eat optimally to achieve... (more)
Absolutely carb type matters for body composition, mood, focus, and digestion. However, the same carb may produce different affects for different people. Here is a simply little ket to go by though. First, there are really two types of naturally... (more)
Hi I'm new and need a bit of help. I've been nearly a week on Paleo and loving it! I wasn't far off before to be honest. This week for breakfast I've loved having mushrooms, spinach, eggs, tomatoes, bacon for breakfast - its been... (more)
So I work out alot. I lift weights three times a week and do cardio two times a week. I don't do paleo or low-carb in any serious form and I'm not part of the "scene". However I found this website now, and I've read more about paleo/low-carb/LCHF... (more)
One of my clients today was complaining about his stalled weight loss. This guy is a serious mountain biker and wants to shed a few pounds of fat to help increase his performance. He is also a mechanical engineer and is quite anal about collecting... (more)
Update on this issue: My client maintained his daily calorie intake and riding/training schedule, yet reduced his carb intake to around 100g per day while increasing his protein/fat ratios. Guess what? He has started to shed body fat, lose weight,... (more)
Okay I am COMPLETELY confused. I know Paleo's don't usually eat beans, and I didn't for a while (tried >20 carbs as well as a time of >50 carbs per day) but I felt like complete and utter crap most of that time. I wasn't even eating any type of... (more)
If you're seeing benefits from eating beans I say eat em, who cares if they're paleo or not. Tubers and root vegetables are probably a better source of carbs, but that doesn't mean you should shun beans if they work for you.
I know they're complex carbohydrates so the body would metabolize it slowly just like we do with fats, but if you include them in your diet regularly, would the body prefer it over the fats you've eaten thus delaying the stages of ketogenesis... (more)
out of curiosity i looked at the carb profile of kale and the sugars + fiber don't add up to the total carbs. what are other carbohydrates that would contribute to the total carb value and do these carbs cause any insulin response? thanks for... (more)
That would be starch (chains of glucose). Total carbs should be fiber + starch + simple sugars.
Maybe it's just more conventional wisdom, but I remember a friend back then swearing off all carbonated drinks because it was supposedly damaging to teeth because of its acidity or something. Is there any truth in this? Or is it really the sugar... (more)
I was just wondering about why it matters whether you eat VLC or not when in Ketosis? If you eat an excess of carbs or fats, compared to your daily expenditure, you will gain weight. Same is true for net calorie deficits and losing weight. But if... (more)
Hi :) I'm assuming this could be the effect of being low carb and getting low blood sugar as i'm not used to it, but i'll explain. After introducing brown rice soaked ( as i believe I have problems digesting paleo amounts of fat and protein)... (more)
Is that 100g of raw or cooked rice? Your reaction sounds more like blood sugar than bowel (if it was the latter, you might want to look into avoiding starch a la the Specific Carb Diet). It's probably also worth trying another starch to rule out... (more)
I've come across this in The Paleo Solution book, but now I'm debating this with a chemist who says it's just not true. I've found a couple of references to this but only in conjunction with drinking alcohol and being in a fasting, ketogenic... (more)
I have pinned down some of my food problems. After having chronic anxiety for a couple of years I've reduced it significantly through my new diet. As I've said before, sleeping like a baby! So... I've given up all grains, corn, sugar, most dairy... (more)
As long as protein meets requirements then I don't think macronutrients matter much; I think VLC or VLF aren't the best way to go. Myself, I eat around 60% fat, 20% carbs and 20% protein but it can vary.
I started this question as a response to dooliemcjules' question about VLC, Crossfit, and ketosis. My answer quickly moved in the direction of my pet topic, and I've been wanting to ask about this for a while, so here goes: I'm no longer doing... (more)
I wondering what those of you who do a more perfect health diet style of paleo, as in safe starches. I tried it for 2 weeks and gained 6 pounds!!! I went from losing weight steadily on VLC to gaining. However, I felt a lot better. I had been... (more)
I know this low carb thing is getting old for some folks, but please keep in mind that many of us have no choice but to go VLC in order to heal and lose weight. What happens after VLC is what I am trying to figure out. The question is: If you... (more)
