So I have this comparative study for a school project and it requires the nutritional facts of both coconut and wheat flour. My dilemma is where can I source a gram per gram comparison of these two flours. Everywhere I look, one is always heavier... (more)
I've been having bleeding under the skin which I finally realized was a case of "solar purpura" or "actineal purpura". From what I understand, years of sun damage (from my childhood on a tropical island and years of driving with my arm on the car... (more)
I just got a new conditioner, It otherwise doesn't contain any offensive ingredients, but I was just unwrapping it when i saw in the ingredients that it contains hydrollized wheat protein! :( I was REALLY looking forward to using it, it smells... (more)
What's everyone elses experience with removing wheat/gluten from their diet? The big trend that I hear a lot of right now is gluten. Yes, gluten can be *extremely* bad for you physically and mentally and that's fairly easily quantified.... (more)
There's a Gluten Summit going on this week for anyone that's interested in more on this topic. Have no affiliation with them but find it fascinating and free.
There are a few threads regarding soy sauce, I know... Apparently a lot of celiac Japanese enjoy soy sauce (with wheat) without issue. Then a lot of Americans claim it makes them terribly ill. I'm probably not celiac. I try to keep... (more)
Fish sauce is my answer to all things soy sauce. It makes a strong statement on your food and you only need a small dose instead of a drenching. Fermenting certainly changes things but that science is above my knowledge.
Guys hi, I've been gluten free for close to a year. There are definitely lots of pros. But i found that i focus better after eating some wheat - pasta, bread, etc... I work in sales and it's very noticeable. The ability to find... (more)
Okay, so I have a really big question about gluten that I can't seem to find an answer for. I'm not following the Paleo diet but I happened to stumble upon this site a few days ago and I've been refreshing the "questions" page every chance I get--... (more)
I have been advised to try wheat germ oil for the stretch marks and was wondering if it's going to have the same negative effect on my body as consuming wheat? Also, my favourite lip balm contains wheat germ oil, is that dangerous as well? Many... (more)
Have a question on gluten cross contamination. Unfortunately, I'm the only one in my family in line with any kind of paleo/primal/traditional/whole food dietary/lifestyle way of eating and living, which means there's lots of gluten in my home.... (more)
Hi guys , i'm a 19 years old boy from Italy. I've been IBS sufferer for 18 years , and i still am , but a little better. Following paleo I'v eliminated 60% of my ibs , cause i've cutted off wheat,dairies,cereals,legumes and white sugar. There's... (more)
Hey!! I am paleo for s month now, but got a very bad Pms, birthday and was curious how other foods will affect me. So I decided to eat bread (I live in Germany and here is the best bread on Earth!). I ate. A lot. The next day I was double:... (more)
Do you think this nasty bout of brain-fog I've had today is to blame on that wheat-coated fish fillet, especially after a 100% clean diet last week? I'm also allowing myself 100 grams of carbs (everything else was gourd/paleo friendly). DO you... (more)
Brain fog is from tripping on minutiae. Just think about what you are going to be eating next.
Ate wheat for the first time in 3 weeks and my tongue and mouth are itchy and i feel nauseas, could this be a reaction to wheat??? I have been strict on my paleo for the last few weeks and gave wheat a shot this weekend as i had two kid birthday... (more)
Sometimes I feel like I cannot be satiated on just paleo...I feel like if I add a piece of bread to the end of my meal when I don't feel "complete" I will feel more satiated. Does anyone else feel this way? Can be wheat be satiating?
I've been paleo for over 4 months now. I hadn't had any wheat but 4 days ago had a bowl of pasta. Major and fleeting lapse in judgement, I know..alcohol was involved. For the first 2 days after this, I slept over 16 hours each day. I'm STILL... (more)
Ok just stumbled on something, I know it is a grain but if you hit up some research about it and tell me... What do you think? Our Paleo ancestors would have eaten this am I correct? Too bad I don't live in Italy where it goes by the name Farro (more)
I can't scare up a link right now, but I watched a documentary called "The Ascent of Man" its from the 70s or 80s. In the section about agriculture they discuss wheat domestication. The short from is; man gather wheat for food; man learned to... (more)
Hello, I've been eating a paleolithic diet since about Thanksgiving of last year. I've lost roughly 25 lbs and for the first few months there were no issues. In late January I asked a question here because I thought I was having some digestive... (more)
Maybe you've seen Denise Minger's blog posts (If not check out "The China Study, Wheat, and Heart Disease; Oh My!" where she discusses the strong correlation she found between wheat and heart disease in the raw china study data. Yes, ultimately it... (more)
I'm just curious, as a one-time gluten-sensitive person (haven't been for years), if you were to stop eating wheat and other grains (as per Dr. Davis' "Wheat Belly" book), would your body ultimately become unable to digest those foods if ever you... (more)
For a while, I allowed myself "cheats," so I wouldn't obsess over cravings for the non-/anti-nutritive foods I was addicted to (i.e. "feel deprived"). I very soon thereafter gave up on cheating, because those cheat foods I didn't want to "feel... (more)
I just came across this interesting study and I'm not sure what to make of it. In a randomized controlled trial, participants were fed either white bread or whole grain sourdough style wheat bread for 6-weeks (the whole wheat contained some other... (more)
Curious about this one, cause I haven't yet developed the taste for Chopin, which is notably distilled from potatoes. Most other vodkas (Grey Goose, Absolut, etc) are distilled from wheat. Anyone know if they contain gluten or not?
Gluten is removed during distillation, so they should be gluten-free unless they have had gluten-containing flavoring added.
I am very aware that grains are not healthy--shocker--but I am curious as to which are the worst and which are more benign? Specifically, after listening to interviews from Dr. Davis on "Wheat Belly", we know wheat is a huge culprit. But if one... (more)
I'm very interested in switching to a modified Paleo Diet. I pretty much eat very similar to Paleo right now, though I do allow some sugars occasionally (I love my mojitos on a hot summer day). I realized a year ago that I have a wheat... (more)
