Last November I started gaining weight with no changes in my diet or exercise routine. I went to the doctor and had some blood work done and was diagnosed as pre-diabetic with an a1c of 5.7. I had been eating an ovo-lacto vegetarian diet with... (more)

Put on more muscle via serious lifting and you will most likely see a good drop in yr blood glucose. Also, protein isn't a problem if you're lifting--unless you're slamming way more than you need AND chomping mega-carbs on your rest days.

So coming from a background where I used to be super-fat, and then I dropped 130 pounds to be in-shape and fitter through calorie restriction and near daily exercise (crossfit, calisthenics), I can't seem to rid my waist fat. I got OCD about... (more)

You don't say how much time has been since you adopted paleo and started loosing weight (and specially since dropping soft drinks and crappy food). Keep in mind that a body re-composition takes a lot of time, at least a good amount of months, and... (more)

Ate ZC for five months last year. Felt great but as anyone who works out knows, carbs fuel power and fat burning too. Leangains since then. I eat ZC rest days and 2-300g carbs as taters post workout. Plenty of meat and fat. I eat 2x per day,... (more)

I think you have answered your own question. You say you feel like shit when you don't eat any carbs. I think we need to listen to our bodies true signals some times. Maybe your body is telling you, you need some carbs. Try having 20g a day on... (more)

If it's homemade and fermented for 24 hours, there's nothing to fear in terms of sugars, most of it is eaten away, it should be really sour. If it's commercial in the US, it contains quite some lactose. If it's commercial in Greece for example, it... (more)

Hi I hear a lot of people on this forum supplement with zinc so i was wondering can you get all the zinc you need from eating lamb or beef? Do i need to supplement zinc if I am eating 1lb lamb/beef every day? Thanks

Google: Cronometer. But yes, 1 pound of 80% lean ground beef is 250% DV Zinc. 1 pound of ground lab is 151% DV Zinc. Zinc supplementation on paleo is odd I think, we get more than enough, unless you're ODing on copper via liver. (more)

Serum sodium is homeostatic. Your body can be low on sodium while serum sodium is normal. If you eat less than 60 grams of carbohydrate daily you'll need a couple extra grams of sodium daily. Potassium will need supplemented as well, most... (more)

The intensity determines whether or not you use fat or glucose for energy. When you are doing very high intensity exercise, your body cannot convert fat into energy quickly enough, so glucose is used. That is, by definition,what makes it... (more)
