There seems to be conflicting ideas about how to approach weight loss if you are highly insulin resistant and overweight. PANU recommends 80% fat diet while Robb Wolf advocates 1g of protein per pound of bodyweight a day for overweight people.... (more)
Paleo Board, There have been several posts about finding paleo jerky for sale online. Any developments on this front? Glenn, Yes! I know Robb Wolf's paleo brands frozen dinners got dinged here for being a bit small and pricey, and I don't know... (more)
Make your own. Get some meat, slice it fine, pat it dry, salt lightly, and stick in the oven on the lowest setting with the door propped open slightly, leave it for several hours. Voila, jerky, and so easy even a caveman...
I travel to New York for business every six weeks or so, and this week will be my first trip since starting "the program." For the city-dwellers on the board - what's your favorite paleo-friendly restaurant in Manhattan? (Bonus points for lower... (more)
I was listening to the Robb Wolf podcast yesterday and he talked about how we'll likely sleep more in the winter and less in the summer (Ep 5 or 17?). It reminded me of a question I'd had a few days ago: Is insulin sensitivity seasonal; and if... (more)
http://www.treadmill-desk.com/ Simple concept: walk at a slow rate (in the 1 mph neighborhood) while you do your office jockeying. Walk for six or so hours a day, as our ancestors probably did. Anyone doing this? I'm very curious about it, since... (more)
In some locales where fluoride is not in the water supply, oral supplements are provided as an alternative to help with cavity prevention. I also read that they apparently have never been approved by the FDA (though this may not really be pertinent). (more)
What is the weirdest animal/insect/reptile/paleo food you have ever tasted? Did you eat it under survival conditions/in a restaurant/prepared it yourself? Would you eat it again or recommend it to others? Do you sometimes lament that the range... (more)
In late summer I gather grasshoppers (out in the woods, away from pesticides, fertilizers etc), freeze them and make curry hopper! It's sorta gross, and I mostly do it to gross out my friends.
I'm backing this contest with a whopping 50 of my own reputation points (plus 50 matching points). This contest is not sanctioned by PaleoHacks. The moderator may remove this post without warning. How it works: Write your best poetry or verse... (more)
I have an almost 3 year old who is gluten-intolerant, but loves his carbs. Any ideas on how to wean him of his morning piece of rice toast? It is, for the most part, the onlygrains he gets. He has tons of food sensitivities, and I really worry... (more)
I have read "Cupcake recovery" and "Does anyone have a hard time sticking to the diet when they eat at restaurants"? A lot of good advice there. . . especially the idea of fasting the next day. . . which is mostly the point of my question. How to... (more)
Which is more healthy? A meal with meat and potatoes(not yams/sweet potatoes because we don't have these kind here), or one with meat and white rice? I know that potatoes and rice aren't really healthy but which one does less harm, based on the... (more)
Potatoes are rich in alkaloids, whereas white rice seems to basically be pure starch.
In Half a gram of fish oil per 10 lbs of bodyweight per day?! Melissa commented that "When I took fish oil in the winter I unfortunately learned of its immunosuppressive effects." I recently learned that Cod Liver Oil has too much Vitamin A, so... (more)
This is a little out of left field, but why have we not seen any babies from a paleo couple that had the full dental arch that Weston Price talks about? Ryan has been posting some very interesting stuff on fixing malocclusion during... (more)
I've been going paleo for over a year and am feeling great, but the only negative surprise is my dandruff. I've had it these last two winters without ever having it before in my life. I've been 'poo-less for the last year and my diet is adequate,... (more)
In this recent question "Do we need fluoride toothpaste?" PrairieProf referred to removing fluoride from water. So the questions are: Can that be done economically? How? (more)
I'm going to a class today about hunting and field-dressing deer (in Manhattan!). I'll obviously have some expertise on the subject by this evening, which I'll happily post. Meantime: Does anyone have some good venison hacks? Favorite parts for... (more)
Someone posted a few weeks ago on one of the blogs that they make homemade ice cream using inulin or oligofructose to improve 'mouth feel' in low sugar ice cream; unfortunately I can't find it again. I have made ice cream with very little to no... (more)
You could try using egg yolk instead of gassy soluble fiber. It's hard to give a suggestion how to improve a recipe without knowing specifically what you are doing. Could you post your current recipe?
I know, all the blogs & books really pile on the fish, but I can't stand it unless it's heavily battered and fried, which is probably not a good idea :) CLO is out of the question. I tried it once and gagged and heaved for an hour. I take... (more)
I have heard the words 'Cross-Fit' being mentioned in Paleo circles, but have no clue what it is or how one starts to do it. I assume it means keeping fit across range of activities, but what activities are these? Please, could anyone outline... (more)
Been trying to eat Paleo but after tracking my food realized that I was eating alot of goats milk, yogurt and a ton of whey protein daily. I want to drop all of these to see how I feel and today was my first attempt at it. I ate 1 pound of... (more)
