Brief introduction, fighting mystery illness for the past 7 years, Grain free since May 2011, sugar free since February 2012. Still am reacting to eggs, beef, and even chicken. Pretty much all cruciferious vegetables give me problems, either... (more)
I eat at least 2 eggs every morning, most often with half an avocado for breakfast. I have had very odorous farts and am wondering if it's due to the eggs (They're the only thing I eat consistently from day to day). If it is the eggs, does this... (more)
Well, not literally. let me describe what happened with me on my paleo diet(and i think im nit the obly one to whol this occured. Well, ive been doing Fitness stuff since quite a while (1 1/2 years) now and through this, i also got in touch... (more)
So... yes. That is what happened. Within an hour I think.. I bring this up because I'm starting college soon in the city and I am a complete foodie. I love trying different foods and occasionally indulging in non-paleo foods. I plan on staying... (more)
I never got gas from canned beans. Then I went two months eating only sprouted legumes. One day I ate a can of supermarket beans, and had comically bad gas for the next 12 hours. A few days later I ate a second can of beans, and had no gas... (more)
Was it helpful?
I can cook with wine or drink about 0.5-1oz of alcohol without ill effect. After this, I start to feel kind of hot / icky / dehydrated / palpitationy as soon as during my second drink (though I do not have a flush reaction.) I can continue onto... (more)
I've recently started paleo. I can't eat eggs scrambled with a bit of coconut oil but I can eat them cooked into paleo waffles. Why? Mt stomach was never sick prior to changes my eating habits slowly over the past 7 months.
Hey, Got some questions :0 I have a 'histamine' intolerance recently diagnosed. After just avoiding high histamine foods and trigger foods, I experienced no relief and continued on searching for the problem. Come to find out I had a... (more)
Hi there, I was wondering if any bodybuilding folks out there that supplement with whey protein shakes have an alternative option for us dairy intolerant people. I was checking out some beef protein by Muscle Meds Carnivore and Optimum... (more)
Egg protein is great...good inbetween of whey and casein. If you have a reliable source to get fresh eggs from, have em raw. If not, you can buy the powder or just east eggs after your workout (hardboiled if you want immediately after)
I've been around the block a hundred times when it comes to acne. I've had it for about 8 years now, I've tried every awful chemical / medication out there, including accutane (worst mistake!). Basically, last year I suffered from the worst cystic... (more)
i know of the following things that cause acne. cream of milk oily stuff foods staying awake late nights : they increase the heat in the body which causes acne to appear on the face foods that generate a lot of heat in the body - meat, eggs,... (more)
There is lactose intolerance and there is casein allergy - both components in milk and also found in whey protein concentrate. Whey protein isolate is a very purified version of whey and my question is are there any here who have found an issue... (more)
A week ago, I bought a lamb roast from Costco (imported from Oz), cut it up into steaks and smaller roasts and froze the meat. I decided to make lamb steaks last night for dinner, just fried in some ghee with a bit of salt and pepper, with some... (more)
I know I get stomach pains when I eat certain foods, and after paying attention to them for a while, I have noticed the worst offenders. However, I'm wondering if there is a common compound or "type" of foods that indicates something I should be... (more)
I gave up eggs on a trial basis to see if it would help my endometriosis. What it did do was reverse the severe constipation I've had for years. How can I know if this constipation is a simple constituency of stool problem, and therefore can... (more)
You have to put some EFFORT into pooping, repeat the Mantra "I WILL LIVE OR DIE BY MY POOP!" There can be no distractions, you must commit yourself to 5 years of hard, long training as a Poop Ninja, don't bother me with your excuses, until you... (more)
I live in the midwest and I know it's cold here, but even with multiple layers here, I'm ready to pack it up and move south-not realistic though. My hands and feet are cold all the time and when I'm not moving, my teeth are sometimes chattering-no... (more)
Hi Fellow Paleo-ers! Listen, have you been paleo for a while (ive been for 2 months) and if you try to consume a grain, even the tiniest little piece, you get a reaction similar to anaphylatic shock but without your throat closing? I have always... (more)
thanks for the reply, same exact thing happens to me. BTW, ive been tested for celiac as well as that was negative. Last night i wanted to try a little experiment. I ate one cookie. And before i swallowed it the skin on the roof of mouth peeled... (more)
Those of you who have a coconut/nut intolerance, what are the symptoms that led you to this conclusion? A few months ago I noticed that any time I have a meal large in coconut product I get bloated and have uncomfortable stomach issues. I've also... (more)
Hi guys, long time since I've been on this forum, I've kind of drifted away from paleo, perhaps because I've been on Prozac for the last six months (came off a month ago) and am no longer depressed and as a result perhaps not so orthorexic I had... (more)
Understandably if you have gas/bloating/ibs etc. then you can't tolerate it. However what are the other non-GI tract symptoms people have experienced? Thanks
About two years ago I started to experience this disgusting fishy taste when I burped, I do not take fish oil supplements or any medication apart from a probiotic and spirulina. The taste would continue for a long time and effect what I ate, how I... (more)
So, I've discovered that making your own fermented things is super-satisfying, but I'm dairy-intolerant and thus have a limited number of ways to start ferments! Sauerkraut and veggies are fine on their own of course, but I'd like to make coconut... (more)
I am curious if getting acne from a food is a good gauge on whether or not that food is good for your body. For example, if you ate dark chocolate (as primal followers do) and within the next few days you get a bad break out would you stop? Should... (more)
This is a follow-up for this question. It's pretty clear that paleo is not a band-aid for most of us. In my case, I ended up with a dairy and orange juice intolerance. A couple of months before paleo I was able to eat those with no issues, after... (more)
Is eating the same food almost everyday a sure way to become intolerant to that food or is that just a myth? Traditional cultures seem to have no problems , I think, from consuming the same thing day in day out.
My son has a "true" allergy to brazil nuts which could kill him. My feel is that the rest is intolerance due to leaky gut. I was "allergic to everything" and they all went away when I stopped eating wheat. Gotta heal the gut.
