Hi, I've been doing a bit of research on magnesium lately, and from what I can tell there is only one kind of naturally occuring magnesium in food products - and that is the kind of magnesium that our bodies need. If you go to any search engine... (more)

It's good enough for me, apparently. I started using it last year and it solved constipation back then. People around me don't find it tasty though.

I am not a high carb, nor am I a low caber (by paleo standards). How many carbs you can eat without gaining fat will be determined by the type of carb (starch/glucose vs fruit/fructose), your level of insulin sensitivity, when you choose to eat... (more)

I make a low sugar "jello" with coconut water (for potassium) and honey. Mix 2 round tablespoons gelatin with a tiny bit of cold water, add 2 c hot water, add sweetener & 2 c coconut water. Chill.

I'm not up to making my own yet - is it OK to eat store-bought, refrigerated-in-a-bag-Kosher sauerkraut? All of a sudden I have a hankering for it.

You'd miss out on the probiotics with the in the bag stuff. It's all pasturized which kills the good guys off. If you want to go premade, get some Bubbie's sauerkraut or some kimchi. Full of the reasons that fermented foods are good for you.

I know that I'll probably get a lot of different answers, some likely to contradictory but my basic question stands; what specifically should I be eating on an honest Paleo diet?

Animals and plants. That's it. Mix it up anyway you want. More specifically, meat & veggies. Add fruits, nuts and tubers as you like. Use fats like coconut oil, butter, ghee and tallow. Avoid grains (especially wheat/barley/rye). Avoid... (more)

Kind of a left wing question, and I will probably get a mixed response for this. I believe that your body will use whatever it's given for fuel, and will store whatever is less desirable when you eat from all 3 macros at once. That being said, if... (more)

I seem to be the lone voice in support of chromium picolinate... I've been taking 200-400mcg/day for years. (Not every day, but at least a few times a week.) You really have to make an effort to "OD" on chromium, and there's no reason to even... (more)

I would not recommend planning cheat days; the structuring of it makes it an acceptable and integrated part of your overall plan - and if you have an interest in eventually actually realizing that ideal of "not falling off" a majority of the time,... (more)
