I love nuts. They are filling, crunchy, tasty and just plain different than most things I eat while on a strict Paleo diet. Which types are the best? Currently I eat about a cup of either marcoa almonda, walnuts or cashews about every other day.... (more)

Which type of fat is better for men trying to increase testosterone? I read a lot of articles online stating that monounsaturated fats are better than saturated for testosterone. I know to avoid most PUFA. Which type fat is better for overall health? (more)

Sounds like your trying to lose weight fast. Still stuck in the diets must be starvation mindset. You're probably around 600-700 calories for what you have described, that's starvation level. You do yourself no favors eating that little.
I don't hear much about cashews on the various paleo blogs I've looked at, and I'm wondering why. They're mighty tasty, and seem to stack up well against other nuts. For instance, compare 1 oz of cashews: Total Fat: 13.0g Saturated Fat:... (more)
http://stacktv.stack.com/Nutrition/The-Right-Food-to-Eat/Fat-in-a-Sports-Diet.html is saturated fats in proffesional sport or for amateur sport bad? just watched this video. i think its more for proffesional athletes rather amateurs or hobby... (more)
I have this coconut oil that I mainly use for skin and my hair. The brand is called Parachute , it's imported from India. It does say that it's edible. This is what the back reads ''A premium quality 100% pure edible oil, made by pressing... (more)
Parachute coconut oil is not good for cooking. It's ok to apply it on your hair and body. If you wish to use coconut oil for cooking, I suggest you buy virgin coconut oil.
I thought I had this one figured out but now am hopelessly confused. If we divide the types of food into protein, carbs (low carb of course), and fat, which meals should focus on which of these three? I've read not to have carbs for dinner but... (more)
Just "fit day"ed my nuts for the am an it says over 800 calories. Roughly 4 servings of 3T worth of mix cashews, almonds, walnuts, sunflower seeds and dried cranberries.... then I had 6 brussel sprouts and 1/2 ground beef. I'm tracking not for... (more)
Hi everyone I'm a 40yr old with about 40lbs I'd like to lose. I run 3 times a week and do free-weights 2X a week. I'm in my first week of eating paleo-and have lost about 7lbs already (I know this is mainly water weight, but I still love it!) I... (more)
Hi all- I know there are many pages devoted to coconut oil, coconut milk, fats - I've read a lot but haven't found my exact answer. Please forgive me if I've missed relevant threads :) I have PCOS, lost about 20 pounds in about 6 months eating... (more)
I am not sure if this has been addressed directly, but if going low carb throughout the day (say 75g or less) and I exercise between 30-45 minutes, primarily for fat loss, with resistance 2-3 days, and general cardio or HIIT on 2-3 other days, is... (more)
I have fallen in love with Coconut over the few months, but A persistent cough that flares up at different times has me chasing dietary suspects, dairy, coffee or coconut seem to be the problem children. What fats can I turn to while me and... (more)
Hi everyone, Lately I've been scaling up my fat intake by adding coconut oil, coconut butter, coconut milk, and some ghee into the mix as before I don't think I was getting enough fat into my diet (I'm wrapping up a month on paleo). While I've... (more)
Edit: also, this is my first post. Why do I have -2 rep? Hi- I am new, but I read here all the time. Any brands of avocado oil that is recommended in particular? I'd prefer something that's unrefined. Do I need to be on the look out for... (more)
I get mine from Costco, you can get a liter of organic avocado oil for $9.99 which is about half the price as anywhere else I have seen. Olive oil, coconut oil, and Kerry Gold are dirt cheap there as well.
I have allergic reactions to high tyramine/histamine foods, vegetables, nightshades, peppers and eggs, I can't go back to high carb diet, I tried it a few days and I suffered headaches, depression, low appetite, my Paleo template right now... (more)
Can you tolerate any liver? Chicken liver? Might be good to try that and any other offal since you aren't tolerating any veggies. The offal can provide some of the vitamins you would get from fruits and veggies.
I was in a Paleo VLC keto diet for 7 weeks. It didn???t worked. After each meal I would feel lethargic. ironically I felt great while fasting. One day I did fasting for 24 hours and I had a lot of energy, but after eating 6oz of beef liver meat... (more)
I used to feel horrible after eating high fat or high protein meals and like you, only felt energetic and well in a fasted state. What fixed my problem is this: Try eating 3 regular sized meals with a balance of carbs (include some starchy and... (more)
When I eat saturated fats I rapidly start gaining fat, does anyone else experience this or know the mechanism behind it? Ii have tested it multiple times by cutting out sat fats and reintroducing them again, within one or two days of replacing... (more)
Which are the good ones and bad ones and why? I eat a lot of saturated fat. I get a mix of people telling me that's horrible, and a mix saying you need it for fuel etc. I add olive oil to all of my veggies and even meats sometimes so i get TONS... (more)
hey everyone I have a question. My question is I basically only consume coconut oil as my main fat source, along side the natural fat occurring in eggs, and tilapia.(I consume a lot of eggs about 10 eggs a day, with 2-4 egg whites. But eggs... (more)
I raise chickens, so it's not uncommon for me to have 4-6 eggs every day..sometimes just the whites, but I love them whole and hard boiled, too. I could eat avocado with every meal, but I know that's a lot of fat. I'm just coming off of a 3-day... (more)
Looking for some n=1 accounts of macadamia nut consumption. I know I've gotten carried away before and eaten quite a bit and felt icky but even then I'm not sure it was the nuts or the excess. In theory, they're an excellent food source. Also... (more)
My father (age 73) has been adapting an 80/20 paleo diet for the past 3 months or so. I've been preparing most of his meals, and he is all for it. Enjoying the food, not missing the grains, self-reported energy gains, and neighbors comment... (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)
