- Paleo Diet
- Food Tracking
Hello, I am aware of people using myfitnesspal, apps, and websites to track their rough intake as a whole. My problem is how do you know what grams of protein,fat and carbs look like on a plate? So lets say I need 95 total grams of... (more)
Hey, so after supplmenting with magnesium glycinate after a suggestion from someone on here (and having it relieve my muscle cramps almost entirely), I'm very interested in learning more about how and in what combinations vitamins and minerals... (more)
Hi One thing I like about the posts here are the scientific explanations behind some answers; however things like cortisol, HDLP etc. leaves me, the uninitiated, left confused. Are there any sites out there that can easily bring myself into this... (more)
I was recently investigating chlorella as a possible food source. The science behind it looked promising, initially. Lots of pubmed studies claiming an array of health benefits. NASA was studying this as a food source for astronauts, Russians used... (more)
My gramma (bless her) used to have me drip hyrdogen peroxide in my ears and let it fizz away at the first sign of a cold. It always seemed to do the trick. I have begun doing this again recently but am plagued by the thought that it could be a... (more)
I came across this announcement: Link So is science catching up to Paleo? Also, I watched this: I, Caveman My questions: It seems that the mainstream science is very supportive of Paleo. At least the recent research. Why did it take so... (more)
Nothing. Science never has nor never will prove anything. There are people who have misapplied badly done science to create recommendations that are bad for people, but that's not science's fault.
I am reading this book, having seen it touted in Underground Wellness. It is well-researched and endorsed by many key researchers. The only Q I have so far is the focus on zero and low-fat foods. Why? Can anyone make sense of this?
I'm pondering the health pros and cons of either 1) paleo with conventional meat/farmed fish, or 2) vegetarianism that excludes grains/seed oils/processed foods but includes traditionally prepared legumes, pastured eggs, and organic dairy... (more)
I was reading my blog feed this morning, and this image came across from one the atheist / skeptic blogs I follow: Now, I definitely feel there's a lot of pseudoscience out there (sadly, sometimes espoused here on PH). When I read the right... (more)
Just a quick question... I think the years I spent suffering every Gluten related issue helped "sink the Paleo hook deeper" than if I'd never been ignored, humiliated, and chastised by those MDs practicing CW. However, I am also fascinated by the... (more)
I have some scientist friends complaining about how "anecdotal" all this paleo stuff is. I'm looking for the Top 5 most persuasive, well researched papers out there. I'm sick of nit picking with these guys over email. I just want to go "blam"... (more)
I saw it in the latest WAPF journal and it seemed kind of suspicious. http://www.westonaprice.org/cardiovascular-disease/how-does-pork-prepared-in-various-ways-affect-the-blood Even Andrew Weil, a wooish dude, seems to think it's quackery. (more)
I've been Googling it: Here is a good blog post on it. Seems about as valid as the Oracle of Delphi. Quackwatch, biased source I know. Korean study that found it meant nothing. Live blood analysis scam It seems like woo to me. The fact they... (more)
Do we have this? According to Chris Masterjohn, we don't. Chris Masterjohn on How to Properly Interpret Ex Vivo Studies -- Gluten and Leaky Gut As an Example: Consequently, neither Dr. Fasano's most recent study showing that ... (more)
Okay, so science vs. pseudoscience is something I care passionately about, and I expect at least some PHers to feel similarly. (Or maybe not... lol.) So here is my general gut instinct on how PH should handle pseudoscience: if you post a question... (more)
I have a problem with overeating. The last time that I needed to stop doing something related to food, I loaded up on info related to why it's bad for me and I quit eating it (Kurt Harris explained eloquently exactly why fruit should be minimized... (more)
It amazes me how both obsessive and ignorant people can be. Educate yourself, please! Go out and read Robb Wolf's book, look for Loren Cordain, Gary Taubes, Mark Sisson online.. read WHY you are doing this.. not WHAT you should do. So many... (more)
Hi All, To see the other side of the coin and develop a better side of our own, what logical & substantiated arguments can you make against the Paleo diet as you define it? Saying "there is no counter-argument" is, I feel, an intellectually... (more)
As a disclaimer, I know there are exceptions. There are some universities and professors who are extremely diligent in their search for the truth. Also, there is rarely any one correct answer to any field. However, it has become apparent to me... (more)
So... since I was asked... and this seems to be a respectful group (and I know I'm opening myself up for the kind of headaches I get all over the place, from which I actively shield myself to some degree)... I'll write a little about what I do and... (more)
So here's the deal. I'm willing to put my short term health on the line to help test the effect of high fruit in conjunction with adequate protein diet Basically only food that wants to be eaten or defenseless when dead. Meat and Fruit. But a... (more)
Today, I was curios about whether the "other side" had a strong blog community like the paleo community does. Are there any nutrition, science based blogs that promote the low-fat diet or is the paleo community unique in this respect?
I am looking for recommendations of books that are not directly related to paleo/low-carb (like "Primal Blueprint" or "Good Calories Bad Calories") and not written with an intention to change the way you eat, but academic and popular science books... (more)
I don't mean doctors of any celebrities, but rather doctors who are somewhat of celebrities - on talk shows, publishing popular books, and writing articles for popular news portals. I don't watch tv, but I somehow recognize names like Oz, Gupta or... (more)
