My experience has been quite the opposite. I started when I was 30 and one of the first things I noticed was that I was much more randy. I would have considered my libido as "normal" pre paleo. But for me, going paleo turned me into one of the... (more)

Try a zinc tally test AKA zinc challenge.  This is a liquid form of zinc that you'd put a few drops of on your tongue and taste.  If you notice no taste at all, i.e. just like water, then you need zinc.  The stronger the taste, the... (more)

The low ketone reading is probably due to the fact that you're in energy balance, as evidenced by weight maintenance.  In many contexts (and this is likely one of them), calories DO matter... ketogenic diets are very effective at... (more)

I don;t know where you are, but herring, mackerel, dover sole, flounder, plaice, cod, halibut etc are all brilliant and delicious. I don't think it is possible to overeat fish so enjoy! And don't forget to eat some shellfish - super healthy too. (more)

My guess = No. Fermenting a vegetable doesn't remove the lectin, saponin or alter the capsaicin content of the nightshade itself (as far as I know), so my guess is that you should still avoid them. The lectin,... (more)
