Hey guys, I'm a 20 yr old female that recently started eating paleo (again). Right now I'm consuming approx. 1,200 calories per day; although, I'll admit, sometimes I consume closer to 1,000. I realize this is probably too little, but I'm... (more)
Hello! I started paleo about 2 months ago and from all the information I read, I always thought paleo was about eating until you were satisfied as long as it was the right kind of food. Then I discovered ketosis and found out I need to limit... (more)
I've started the Whole30 last week and I haven't drank any milk, yogurt or even butter. But I'm using ghee. In the beggining, I tought it was the eggs that were causing the nauseas, that "vomit feeling' (I'm sorry if you have just pictured it).... (more)
If you want to continue using ghee, you could try using cultured ghee. Many people who are sensitive to regular ghee find they can handle the cultured stuff.
Has anyone seen the panorama documentary on the atkins? They concluded after giving people food until they were full as much as they could eat. They put fat lots of added fats in certain groups pf peoples food and not the other. Every time... (more)
Yo PaleoHackers. Clark here back again! You know what time it is! As a lot of you know I run the PaleoHacks podcast. We have Dr. Jonny Bowden coming up on the show. We'll be covering content around his "Unleash Your Thin" program. Dr. Bowden is... (more)
I came from the LeanGains camp where you probably shouldn't be consuming anything above 10 or 15 calories during your fasting period. I've noticed a lot of people talk about using coffee, or coffee with MCT oil or butter, until they "break" their... (more)
I agree. I believe the real benefits of fasting come from the autophagy process. When you consume pure fat, even though it does not illicit an insulin response, it still provides useable exogeneous energy for your body, so it doesn't have to tap... (more)
Just wondering what the body does with far and how it handles it without carbs/insulin. Also would it make a difference if this fat was ingested after a 20 hour fast? Or if ingested with protein?
Thats basically it. We all know, add fat, lower the glycemic index of any carb. Thats why for some crazy reason, ice cream sugars are absorbed slower than starch in white bread (ie lower gi). How/why does this happen?
I have been tracking my macronutrients via con-o-meter. I am shooting for a ratio of 15:20:65(carbs:protein:fat). I can't seem to get my ratio of fat above my ratio of protein. Any suggestions?
Ketosis is when you have very low carb consumption and your body converts fat into ketones by your brain to use as energy, fat can't cross the blood brain barrier to be used as energy for the brain. Fat adapted means that you are able to burn fat... (more)
My friend suggested I make a Bacon explosion: 2 pounds bacon, thick sliced 2 pounds sausage (italian, breakfast, sage. Whichever you prefer) 1 cup cheddar cheese (finely shredded) 2 whole green onions (thinly sliced) 4 cloves garlic (minced) 1... (more)
Hi all, i started paleo diet two weeks back and loving it. I perform intermittent fasting and have 2 meals in a day. I'm 170 lbs and hitting 2900 cals daily and perform strength training 3 times per week. I had couple of questions on... (more)
I need the calories but I am sensitive to some of the more tastier fats, like coconut, avocado, and nuts. Is there a way I could sneak in more tallow in a tastier connotation? Maybe a sauce or something, where I can't taste it directly?

Why would it be any more taxing on the liver than a huge carbohydrate load would be on the pancreas? Or a huge protein load on the kidneys? Why do folks assume the body is some fragile thing, incapable of being resilient and adaptable?
I still suffer from swollen abdomen, diarrhea and nausea. My gi issues really piss me off. I eat dairy in form of heavy cream and butter, are they usually problematic? I think i suffer from ibs. My problems gone worse, when i started really high... (more)
Just wanted to see if I was alone here...When I started high fat, low carb I was actuallya bit bloated and heavy feeling for the first two weeks. I stuck with it, and now...vamoos! I have lost 3lbs in a week and have the best six pack I have ever... (more)
Caveman and I have been working on a ranch dressing substitute (just needs to be creamy and good not necessarily a copy of ranch). We found that blending avocado, olive oil, a touch of heavy cream and spices turns out DELICIOUS. I was thinking... (more)
For years I had a peculiar reaction to salmon: I threw up the oil. Just the oil. Every time. In the past several years, I have been able to greatly reduce this by only eating wild salmon, which makes me think that it was the oil in the farmed... (more)
Olive oil has some PUFAS, which degrade rather quickly. Most people don't seem to know this and they buy olive oil in clear containers and don't bother shielding it from the light. A properly stored cold pressed olive oil is a world away from the... (more)
This may sound like a stupid question, and maybe it is, but this is one of the most common remarks I get when talking about eating enough fat: "Isn't that really bad for your liver?" I'm a laymen, but I know a bit about the effects of neolithic... (more)
If it is animal, you can eat it. If it is tough, get it into small enough pieces and then do as the Inuit (Stephanson, Fat of the Land) did- roll around in your mouth a few times for flavor and then just swallow it.
I saw tubs of coconut oil going really cheap the other day. I'm pretty sure it is refined, but not hydrogenated. As it's cheaper than the homemade ghee I've been using, I thought I would buy some. I have two questions though: Is refined coconut... (more)
Following up on an earlier question contemplating the optimal "Paleo" vitamin dose, which foods would be good starting points for ascertaining recommended fat soluble vitamin ratios? Do you know the A-D-K-E ratio of any "whole" foods? (more)
As pointed out in the other thread, it makes no sense to include D in this, as paleo man got most of his D from the sun. The food that contains the most D, liver, probably contains too much A compared to D.
Fascinating how two people can get such radically different results! Today's lipid panels for your perusal. First, let's recap what the numbers "should be": HDL: 60 or higher LDL: 60 or lower Triglycerides: 60 or lower And the ratios between... (more)
