Hello, I am a 18 year old female who has been following the paleolithic life style for about 8 months now, and I love it! I just have a few questions and concerns that I was wondering if anyone could give me advice! First, I am a very small... (more)
So I know there are lots of threads on here wondering why people must cut out nuts to lose weight (myself included). For example why I could lose weight on a tracked 1200 calorie a day diet for a week, and then the next week eat 1200 calories but... (more)
I'm all for avoiding PUFA's, but I have yet to see evidence that they slow the metabolism down in humans. Perhaps they do in very specific contexts (explaining your experience) but not for the average person.
Do you think carbs and fats together is a problem? And what is your take on nuts and acne? I really have experimented with diets in curing my acne. I mean I think the high fat diet only works if you are super strict and I just don't think we are... (more)
Does anyone else find that you can't stop at just ONE nut? It's horrid. I just baked some almond flour crackers and I ate the ENTIRE BATCH within a few hours. It was 1.5 cups worth of almond flour and 0.5 cup of coconut, and now I just feel sick... (more)
Hi , it's fall and as I looked out my window this morning I saw some squirrels eating nuts falling from an acorn tree in my backyard and I was like Eureka. I've usually been normal weight even though I've seen myself as thin (male). About 8... (more)
To what extent are vegetables overrated? Have we been brainwashed by the marketing of vegetables/fruits just as much as by anti-cholesterol/saturated fat propaganda? When we read nutritional profiles, how do we know that the figures for... (more)
Hi! My husband and I are on day three of our thirty day paleo challenge. I'm finding that many websites contradict one another, and would like to know what others think/practice. Please excuse my ignorance- healthy and mindful eating is very new... (more)
If I have a long history of nut butter binges (mostly peanut and almond), should I focus on trying to restore a better 3:6 ratio and avoid nuts for a while?
I usually enjoy raw almonds, but last night chose to eat roasted ones. I feel terrible, my stomach hurts, I feel fat and just awful. Does anyone have an opinion on whether nuts should even be included in the diet? Should I only eat raw nuts, or no... (more)
Here is my issue with nuts and nut butters. While almonds and some others can be extremely healthy, for me it is very easy to overconsume them. I could take down a whole jar of sunflower seed butter or almond butter in a single sitting (on the... (more)
In terms of boosting HDL cholesterol and protecting the heart, are there any differences between raw macadamias and roasted? Are the monounsaturated fats damaged by the roasting process? Also, macadamia's contain saturated fats - anyone know... (more)
All the time I consume either creamed coconut or nuts I get a an empty feeling in my stomach like an hour after. I don't feel week, my energy levels are quite good, but my stomach just feels empty. What would cause this?
Could it be due to the fiber content? Nuts and creamed coconut are both faily high in insoluble fiber. I don't have a theory as to why this would make you feel hungry. Just an observation.
It seems to be a reoccuring pattern on these boards, people who have to completely avoid nuts and nut butters (myself included), because they trigger an instant binge. Does anyone have any literature on why nuts have this magical power to induce... (more)
Since going paleo about 5 weeks ago.. I have found myself endlessly picking and munching on nuts/ nut butters. ( macadamias, almond butter, almonds, hazelnuts). I have always loved them but seems since going paleo I eat them with reckless... (more)
Hi guys, I'm allergic to nuts, egg and fruit. Am I wasting my time attempting a Paleo diet?? I keep looking at recipes and everything is using everything I can't have. Any advice would be helpful. I'm trying to make a healthy turn in my life.
I may have overplayed it with the title a bit, but I think the most dramatic hack would probably solve over 90% of the problems people face in these forums. The paleo diet is usually presented with foods that can be eaten ad libitum, like meat,... (more)
I grab a handful of almonds, I decide to grab another, and another, and another...15 minutes later i'm eating 3 bananas and 2 sweet potatoes and 5 eggs.... Does anybody else have this same experience with nuts or is it just me?
I've been paleo for almost 2 years now but have never been acne free. In the last 6 months, I've added bone broth, fermented vegetables and bentonite clay to my regimen and have seen great improvements. My tolerance to non-paleo foods has... (more)
Been doing paleo for nearly 5 weeks and have lost 15lb although most of that was during the first 2.5 weeks Weight loss has really slowed off for me although I am, Ithink, very strict, but I am eating approx 2oz nuts every day, is it this which... (more)
I'm reading a lot about how food w nuts or nut butters are considered a treat on paleo... Curious as to why?? I know nuts are calorie dense.. But they do have a lot of fiber and many other nutrients. What is the recommended amount of nuts / nut... (more)
I bought some cashew butter because I miss peanut butter, and I find the cashew butter tastes pretty good. Then I realized "What if cashews are legumes too?!" Are cashews paleo? Are they legumes or nuts?
What are your thoughts on Macadamia Meal? Is there anything wrong with it? It seems pretty nutritionally sound and won't upset the Omega-3 to Omega-6 ratio in a balanced diet. I'm yet to try it. Thinking of having it for breakfast, with fruit... (more)
Does it count as a fat? A nut? A fruit? I am confused. I try to avoid lots of fruit (FODMAPs) and nuts/nut butters/seeds, but I stil Eat copious amounts of coconut butter, thinking it is neither. Am I wrong? Also, I understand coconut oil is good... (more)
Coconut butter is ground coconut meat. Various brands contain more or less fat. A coconut is a seed. The juice inside is the endosperm. It slowly consolidates to form the stuff we call the coconut meat.
I live in South Florida and I have a few different types of palm trees in my yard??? Christmas Palms, Queen Palms, Foxtail Palms, and a Bismarck Palm. I feed the nuts to my parrots and I was wondering if any of you have ever eaten palm nuts... (more)
