My husband and I have been following low-carb for a couple of years, and near-Paleo for several months. He has suffered on and off for years with Restless Leg Syndrome. Does anyone know about this and perhaps a vitamin or mineral supplement that... (more)
I remember people telling me that when you feel hunger pains that your body is cannibalizing muscle. Is this just faulty conventional wisdom? Im trying to lean out a bit but I shed muscle very easy and I worried about loosing any gains that I... (more)
Two days ago I had brilliant idea. Before going to bed I decided to have some Vitamin C. I didn't have a spoon so I added it by eye and the amount was probably a few grams. Half an hour later, I couldn't stand, I couldn't sit, I couldn't lie... (more)
With so many people shunning soap and shampoo, what's the general thought on dental hygiene? Brush, floss, mouthwash? Someone told me about chewing certain types of leaves for hygiene purposes. What say you?
I've suffered from this on and off while paleo. It's very distressing but mostly harmless. I've been to the doc who did a physical exam and declared I didn't have traditional vertigo but presribed some stemitil, which actually made it worse. I've... (more)
Weston Price used butter oil as part of his diet recommendations, and I've seen a lot of people in the paleo community recommend it as well, so I recently bought a bottle from Green Pastures. The problem is that it's really expensive for the... (more)
Hi everyone, just found the forums doing some research on paleo/primal communities. Love it so far! Spent all night reading and searching for things I had questions on and still had a few so I figured I'd ask away. 1) I work the graveyard shift... (more)
Ok, so Dr. Harris would probably put this in the category of "candy cigarettes," but for what it's worth here's a link to a site that sells cookies made with only paleo ingredients (including honey): http://www.cavemencookies.com/ Oh yeah, the... (more)
Meh, A pile of omega 6 and fructose, you can get gluten-free cookies that would probably taste better (and they have CHOCOALATE!). I'm firmly in the 'don't smoke candy cigarettes' camp, arsenic is paleo too, still not good idea to eat it.
Flax seed is only valuable for its omega-3 content, but that omega-3 is the ALA form, which is less usable than the DHA form. DHA can be found in large amounts in fish and other seafood. My father and I had migraines before going paleo. Doing an... (more)
My local grocery store carries dried veggie chips as a store brand (Publix.) Ingredients seem pretty benign (Squash, Carrots, Taro, Green Beans, salt.) Beyond the oil, any issues with dried veggies?
only that most of those vegies are all starchy/sugary vegetables and the oil is probably some type of processed vegetable oil. I'd rate those about the same as any other "chip"
I usually hard boil up a dozen or so at a time and this is my mainstay for breakfast through out the week as I travel for work. I am curious as what the thinking in the community here is on eating hb eggs. Go for the whole egg? Eat just the... (more)
I've recently started to get a really visceral reaction from coffee in the past month. Been paleo for about a year and am well used to drinking my strong coffee with heavy cream, which I've never had an issue with. Last month I became really... (more)
I have half a dozen cans of coconut milk sitting in my pantry, and I need to think of ways to use more of it on a day to day basis! I like the taste, and it's great in curries or similar meals, but I wish I had more options. Can y'all suggest... (more)
My local Whole Foods had fresh Portuguese sardines in today but I have no idea how one would prepare them. Grilled? Fried? I didn't buy any but I'd like to try fresh ones. What's the best way to minimize the fishyness?
I need a new electric range, and am wondering what kind of cooking top is best for frying. My existing one is very old, with (uneven) coils. Most new ranges seem to have a smoothtop. I fry most of my food -- does anyone have thoughts on... (more)
I also have an old stove, but I only cook on cast iron. It distributes the heat wonderfully. I fry almost everything I eat - even frying down greens. As for buying a new stove, I'd go for the cheapest of good quality. As with many things, folks... (more)
I'm interested in gaining a decent amount of muscle mass with heavy compound lifts and the right diet. Standard Starting Strength answer is GOMAD, and I've done that for a while (I seem to tolerate dairy very well, thankfully.) I'm just curious... (more)
As a supplement to a paleo lifestyle, I also engage in Crossfit and I am sure that many of you do as well. A friend of mine has recently joined Crossfit and taken up a paleo lifestyle. I would love to know how to a) shut this guy up and b) provide... (more)
Hello, I'm new to Paleo (coming from a veganesque diet), and fat currently makes up about 40-50% of my daily calories (pemmican, coconut, nuts, etc) which might be on the low side for some. Seems like everyone in the Paleo community loves their... (more)
