I've been strict paleo for almost a year. The few times I've "cheated," and consumed very small amounts of gluten, I've gotten pretty ill. The symptoms included headache, joint ache, and upset stomach, as well as a change in mood. This makes me... (more)

I was just listening to an early Robb Wolf podcast and he addressed a very similar question (the last 5 min. or so of episode 6). I think it was for someone that was getting deployed. He said that maybe they should eat a piece of toast or cookie... (more)

ABSOLUTELY get yourself to a doctor! Every so often, stress can make frequent urination happen, but it doesn't last more than 1 day. However, please do not hesitate in getting into see a physician. Today.

Enamel never regrows. Dentine, the layer beneath it, apparently can. You should read what Stephan Guyenet has written about this: http://wholehealthsource.blogspot.com/2009/03/reversing-tooth-decay.html A while ago I thought my teeth were... (more)

Peanuts are legumes, not nuts, so generally they are not considered paleo. You can read about why this is here, in this excellent article: http://whole9life.com/2009/12/peanut-manifesto/ Excerpt: It???s not the ingredients in the peanut... (more)

Being in ketosis doesn't mean glycolysis isn't going on. Ketosis just means you have some ketone bodies in your urine indicating an that fat oxidation > sugar metabolism. For fat oxidation to proceed you need a bit of glycolysis (Technically, the... (more)

I track my food intake through CRON-O-METER and just ran a report. The strict paleo regime I've been following looks pretty amazing when vitamins and lipids are analyzed. The only glaring gap in the whole shebang seems to be Vitamin E, which... (more)

My guess would be that RDA for vitamin E assumes that the diet is high in polyunsaturated fats and thus the level is higher than it needs to be. A diet low in polyunsaturated fats wouldn't require the same level of vitamin E.

Something important to remember here is that you are not "on" a paleo diet. I know you're not trying to be rude, but I find that as offensive as somebody accusing me of being GF to shed a few pounds. I eat paleo because if I eat SAD, I get sick.... (more)

I work at an Optometrists office, and a persons blood sugar definitely can affect their vision. In fact, sometimes a change in vision can be one of the first indicators of insulin resistence or diabetes.

Do you get your nutritional need for energy from bugs? Have you eaten bugs, worms, snails, wasps, bees, larvae? How wild or primal is your diet really? Or are you just following a marketing label?!

Not sure if this is what you are asking, but you seem to have the right idea. Avoid vegetable oils and processed foods. Cook with pastured butter rather than oils. Favor beef and lamb over poultry. If you can stand fish or fish oil, that will... (more)
