The gross feeling will pass as your blood sugar returns to normal. There really is no need to "detoxify"; just go back to eating Paleo. And I agree with MathGirl72: take note of how lousy the cake has made you feel, so you can recall that feeling... (more)
Hi PHers! I know there have been a few questions about kidney stones here on the message board, but I haven't found any sources listed other than people's answers. I just completed my Whole30 with my husband and had great success. My sister... (more)
Do sites like PaleoHacks, as useful as they are, perpetuate or exacerbate hypochondria? I'm not suggesting for a second that people here are hypochondriacs but personally I find myself spending a good portion of my day trawling through articles... (more)

I realize that a lot of people will groan at the sight of another Kruse question, but I think this might be important information to share. Today Carbsane posted a blurb from the American Assoc. of Neurological Surgeons website. It's about Dr.... (more)
"Gurus" should be held to NO standard. If your dumb enough to follow someone blindly you deserve what you get. As to his status as an MD, its up to his peers and state association to monitor his behavior in the clinical respect....
Hello, guys. So, I'm on a LC diet, with around 65% fat, 25% protein, 10% carbs. I'm pretty happy with it, but I'm trying to address some of the deficiencies caused by not eating so much fruits/vegetables. These are the values of vitamins &... (more)

I got hit by a car last night while riding my bicycle. Sadly my bike is a mess, but I'm fine (or will be). But after getting home and cleaning my wounds I tried to go to bed at my normal time. Unsuccessfully. So my question is this: How do you... (more)
I was eating out tonight and had my choice of dressings which included a wide range of fat free, low fat and full fat varieties. All of the full fat dressings you find in restuarants contain either soy, canola, or other type of vegetable oils... (more)
Other than grains there is nothing worse than vegetable oils IMO. If those are my only two choices I'd go fat free. Some thickeners and other crap but better than any vegetable oil you're going to get in a chain restaurant.
I feel like I'm in the minority here... I am 118 lbs and 5'10" and I want to gain weight. I am dedicated to eating paleo also because i have rheumatoid arthritis and it helps a ton with that. Can't eat nuts though. Any tips on gaining weight... (more)
I find myself once again searching for a decent general physician in my area. Anyone live in/near Jacksonville and have any recommendations?
This explains my varying response to kale chips, chocolate, coffee/tea, coconut oil, nuts, coconut cream, and cheese - sometimes I'm fine and other times I get nausea, loose stool, diarrhea, gas, and/or abdominal pain. I've also had a bad response... (more)
Has anyone worked with the great plains laboratory before? I am interested in the comprehensive stool analysis. I am a little leery of these online sites because I am not sure how reliable the companies are. Thanks for any feed back! Also, I... (more)
Hi, I would like to have whiter teeth. Even though I do not drink tea or coffee, I have stains, not sure from what, maybe from beets or carrots. On top of it, my teeth are very sensitive and I cannot use any whitening products. Things I have... (more)
I know potatoes and sweet potatoes are in different families. However, tubers are tubers. Both are root veggies and grow in the ground. From what I understand, it's the anti-predation chemicals, particularly in the skin which can be toxic,... (more)
As the title says. Has anyone, or does anyone else experience intense, almost unbearable sugar cravings in the evening. These cravings for me begin around 7pm. Any help and or advice would be appreciated.
I've been reading a lot about the diets of Inuit, Masai, protein sparing modified fasts, etc. I'm curious, does anyone have information on their stool? My diet is low carb, fatty to moderately fatty meat, fish, fowl, and eggs. I usually eat a... (more)
Hi, if I could trade any past or future benefits of paleo to remove the dark circles under my eyes I would, along with any money I have or talents or possibly friends and family, they make me so depressed I have honestly thought about killing... (more)
Ok so I am really confused. I am happy with my weight, but I want to lose a few inches/build a little more muscle. To build muscle don't I have to eat above maintanance? But won't that pack on fat along with muscle? According to a fancy online... (more)
