Eating Paleo we are frequently told to keep carbs low (aim for under 150 g. a day for maintenance, under 100 g for steady loss, under 50 for extreme fat loss, etc. etc) and aim for .7-1.0 g of protein per pound of body weight (I'm 155...so should... (more)

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)
i eat turkey pretty regularly as my breakfast meat and am looking for a source of turkey parts (that i can mainly make ground out of, i'm assuming parts will be cheaper than pre-ground meat) that doesn't cost $10/lb. i am pretty sure the... (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)
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)
Hey guys, Is it ok to eat the fat/rind that comes on pork/lamb chops? I find it the tastiest bit of the meat but am keen to learn if it is really ok to do so although i do keep it to a bare minimum!
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?
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)
Anyone got any suggestions for a fat for cooking that has balanced sat/mono/polys (1/3, 1/3, 1/3) and balanced omegas as well (2:1 omega 6 to 3)? (or at least something with roughly even mono/sat proportions, and semi-reasonable omega balance, so... (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)
I just finished a 30 day challenge on Paleo and made it through unscathed. I feel good, skin looks good, and I dropped a few pounds. Even though my husband and I told ourselves we could "cheat" when we finished the 30 days, I really don't want... (more)
We've all heard and seen stories of people being fat and becoming leaner on Paleo diet. What about the reverse? Is there anyone out there who's gone from "skinny thin" to "lean thin" purely by eating paleo? I'd really love to see if so.... (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)
It's really chewy, and kind of gross, but it is fat... Should I eat it? Am I wasting a good source of fat by chopping off the grizzle on the edge of the meat?
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)
