I've been Paleo for about 10 weeks and I love it. I did however eat regular cake tonight. And of course feel gross as hell. Suggestions for a detoxifying?

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.

The key to gaining weight is eating. More calories is mo' betta. Whatever you can do to eat more. Fat is more calorie dense, so it's easier to increase calories with fat. How? Well that depends on you, but try fatty fish, cream sauces or butter... (more)

The difference lies in the specific antinutrients. There are a few in nightshades, and a few in sweet potatoes, but the nightshade ones have more obvious effects (at least regarding pain). See tab two in this article I wrote a couple months... (more)

"Scratchy" is bad. The last thing you want is an anal fissure or other related issue. Vegetables with soluble fiber (e.g. sweet potatoes, zucchini) will help take the "edge off" that stool. Do some research, and find which veggies work for you,... (more)
