- 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)
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 am student of the paleo science and lifestyle and read pretty much everything I come across. When people begun to harvest they become shorter, died sooner and so on. True! But once again, cause and correlation... Could it be that people become... (more)
Science cannot address the issue of whether God exists or not, NOR does it try. It is not a testable hypothesis.For science to address something it MUST be a scientific hypothesis. Trying to "disprove' God is not a scientific hypothesis . SHYSTERS... (more)
I'm very interested in how food works towards humans. Emotionally, physically and mentally. Food affects us in many different ways, the amount of times we eat, the way it looks, advertising, the use of hands or cutlery, the hand to mouth... (more)
What are valid criticisms of the paleo diet? Scientific, economic, ethical... the gamut. And by paleo I mean the umbrella term that includes Weston A Price, Primal, Perfect Health Diet, GAPS etc etc.
What are some topics specifically relating to obesity that need to be studied? What are examples of paleo "beliefs" that lack substantial evidence from controlled studies? Are any of our arguments prone to pseudoscience? I am asking these... (more)
Just had an interesting facebook "conversation" about gluten with a couple of chefs. The basis of one argument was that while gluten comes from wheat, barley, rye, etc..., it is only developed through kneading. I quote: "Kneading, develops... (more)
Do you ever have moments where you think that this diet might be wrong? That saturated fat IS bad for you? (as the NHS tells me it is and even some parts of the paleo community do too) or that grains ARE healthy? When you look at vegetarian... (more)
So I'm looking for more books. Paleo/nutrition books. Like I always am. I loved Good Calories, Bad Calories by Taubes, I loved Robb's Paleo Solution, and I'm looking for more. Specifically though, I want to find some that go into the science... (more)
Possible Duplicate: Scientific Backing for Paleo I have been living paleo for a few months now, and I feel great and love it! Someone posted this article earlier today and I thought it was wonderful.... (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)
What: The Paleo Summit (see also this post) Who: Mat Lalonde, Ph.D. ??? Research Biochemist, Harvard University Topic: Invalid Inferences: An Organic Chemist???s Perspective on Paleo. Are common Paleo claims as scientifically valid as we think... (more)
Like me (and Harris and Richard and Carbsane and lots of us), he doesn't always play nice, but I think his influence is really really important in encouraging scientific rigor and curiosity. I wish he'd write a book. We know paleo can work,... (more)
I am not a linear thinker at all, and while I have read a lot of science-y type nutrition books, I generally still make decisions about my diet and lifestyle by observing my own body and experimenting and using my intuition. This gets a little... (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)
It seems like most people agree that nutrition isn't the only factor involved with health. Sleep, psychological health, exercise, etc. are all important aspects of overall wellbeing and longevity. Food reward is another rising star in this... (more)
MIT published a new article regarding sodium and glucose monitoring. Instead of peeing or pricking, a solution containing nanoparticles is injected just under the skin like a tattoo. These nanoparticles will fluoresce when exposed to whatever the... (more)
I'm sure people have responded to this study. If you know and can send me to a link, that would be great. I was listening to an old podcast this morning where I heard about this report for the first time:... (more)
Does anyone know of any good books or resources that go a little more in depth with the science and biochem aspects of why the paleo diet works? I need to feed my inner dorkness. Please let me know. Thanks!
Is it feasible for the paleo-community to directly fund real, legitimate and useful scientific studies regarding nutrition/health? What kind of studies might provide the best bang for the buck? How much value might we expect to get from such... (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)
