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'm about to experiment with 10% protein (down from 35%) to see if it has any effect on brain fog and joint pain. How long does it take for the body to break down protein into sulfur and ammonia? How long does it take for the body to clear... (more)
Hello, I have a leaky gut due to SIBO, where recently i was infected with a klebsiella bacteria, recently i have managed to clear this bacteria and use probiotics, vitamins etc for healing and building up healthy levels of bacteria. My recent... (more)
I am like you. I used to be able to eat meat without any problem, however, last year I had a weird infection in my mouth and throat then a week later, I became so intolerant to meat, and it gave me all the same symptoms as my amine intolerance (I... (more)
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?
CONFUSED NEWBIE!!! I'm getting so many different answers. As far as I know.. I'm 20 years old female, weighing 165, height 5'6"-7" and my ideal weight is 130 pounds. I'm trying to do HIGH fat, MOD protein, LOW carb. I was told to eat 1 gram of... (more)
I've done ketosis before and am trying it out again for a few weeks before my trip down to San Diego. Honestly I'm trying to get from 10% bf to around 8% or so (not a Paleo reason...sue me). My main concern is loss of muscle despite hearing it is... (more)
I tend to eat meat on Paleo by baking large amounts in the oven at once, then freezing so I can eat the results whenever I want. Before freezing, the cooked meat cools in my fridge. Thus, before finally going to the freezer, I always find lots... (more)
After hearing about bars made from cricket flour like the Exo or Chapul bars I have really gotten excited about edible insects as a sustainable source of protein and have been researching them a lot (especially since it seems to have been a large... (more)
1. As I'm researching the question about whether or not animal protein rots in the gut, I came across this really interesting (albeit somewhat gross) article about digestion:... (more)
I've often heard by raw food advocates, those against microwaves and those against processed foods that heat and processing will denature proteins in a harmful way. Researching myself, it seems that proteins are chains of amino acids folded in... (more)
I am a 20 year old 6'1" male, and I recently gained ~30lb of fat as a side effect from an unsuccessful trial of medication for my hormone issues. I'm now at about 200lb, and my healthy bodyweight was always around 170-180lb. I'm currently... (more)
I bet I'm not the first paleo peep to go hog wild on protein when starting paleo. I developed terrible tension headaches, stiff neck, muscle cramping, lately bad joint pain / muscle pain, and sneezing fits. Of course, there could be lots of... (more)
I certainly do not make a habit of binging. I don't even have a "cheat" day or meal because I'm someone where if I let myself have a little I'll let myself have a lot. But on the unfortunate circumstances where it does happen, what do you... (more)
Based on my training and my stalled weight loss, my husband has suggested that maybe I need more protein. I've considered re-implementing protein shakes back into my post-WO regimen, as a way to get lean protein without adding a ton of calories,... (more)
When it comes to protein, I can never seem to hit the target. i always end up getting too much or too little. I am well aware that while in keto it's supposed to be high fat, moderate protein, but whenever I try to go for "moderate protein" i... (more)
What percentage of your daily intake is fat, would you say? I stick around 80% fat, while staying around 10g carbs every day. I'm rarely hungry, and tend to eat only once per day (around 5-6PM). Works for me.
I am having more and more trouble being able to go, and i am quite sick with it. i tried logging my food in fitness pal (most of it). i usually go every morning. but it's hard and comes out like rabbit pebbles. according to the fitness pal, i... (more)
At what amount or ratio does protein start to become an issue? What are the optimal numbers? Right now I'm about 150-180g protein a day as a 25-30% macro.
I'm doing about 250g of protein a day but I'm planning on reducing it to see how I go. It's just so easy to get 250g of protein per day and the only way to reduce it is to reduce meat consumption (in my case).
I occasionally get bloated and gassy from eating fatty foods, especially pot roast and slow cooked meats. It's confusing why this may happen because from what I could research, gas production is usually associated with consumption of... (more)
Hi, I am eating Paleo (almost entirely pure, some bad carbs, no gluten) and I have had a tendency lately to wake up feeling really depressed and with anxiety about a lot of things I worry about. This feeling remains until I eat my breakfast... (more)
Is there any case that tells against the daily (multiple) consumptiom of eggs? Because, for me, this is a #1 simplest protein source ever, fitting in an easy, fast and suitable breakfast, and hence also in every other meal as an easy, good at... (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)
I'm sort of paleo 2.0 now, messing with Ray Peat's ideas. I'm closer to isocaloric now, so my carb intake is higher than most people's here. I like this recipe posted on this one blog, because it's so damn simple and seems the most be the most... (more)
Dave, I have read recently that high protein consumption promotes more rapid cell division, while a lower protein diet causes the body to turn towards repairing, restoring and protecting its existing cells. More rapid cell division would wear... (more)
