Coconut stuffs first > I just finished my first coconut oil. I very much liked it; but, I did NOT like guar gum listed in the ingredients. So, I hunted in my local co-op and other healthfood and health conscious stores. I found something that I... (more)
I've recently started reading books and blogs on nutrition (mostly Paleo and Primal). I realized the authors manipulate a lot of facts about nutrition and human physiology and use a lot of terms (insulin, GLUT-4, glucose, fructose, LDL, HDL,... (more)
I've been eating mostly paleo for about a year. I went strict for the first 90 days, then had some cheats in the way of sugar and dairy (exclusively ice cream). Two months ago I decided to dial it back in and cut out the sugar and dairy. I eat... (more)
I've tried roasted beef marrow for the first time a couple weeks ago and it didn't seem/taste that much different from beef fat cracklings (I get suet and render it into tallow, but there are solids left over)...is it really better? or is it... (more)
I cook them for 24 hours in the slow cooker and then parts of the bones do crumble. As for marrow vs normal fat, that's a good question, and I found this post on Google Answers: Louis Arkson Inc., a manufacturer of Health Food Supplements and... (more)
As a kid I often dreamt of having the athletic abilities of say Michael Jordan or Joe Montana (despite their now contraversial connection to Wheaties.) A few monthes ago I asked if you could emulate anyones looks who would it be but now I ask: If... (more)
I posted my thoughts at my site. But I strongly think yall need to read the twitter feed coming out from Robb and the croatan I mean she is a trip......... Tabata paleo sex clinical trials....... she gets plus one for anything she posts with... (more)
Just an FYI - the twitter trend for the symposium is/was #AHS11, for anyone wanting to see what people were saying. We really enjoyed meeting everyone at the event!
I was in Ketosis for bit of time, then I dropped out of it for maybe 3 days while having a few drinks and about 3 bites of candy. What I mean by few drinks is one Baileys and milk a day over a three day period, making 3 drinks in whole and 3 bites... (more)
I've noticed a few anecdotes here regarding carb-cravings on a relatively lower-fat paleo diet. Looking around the academic lit, there seems to be at least one viable and rat-confirmed explanation for this (which would also help explain appetite... (more)
I was doing some searching around last night trying to find a new source for grassfed beef because my beloved Thundering Hoooves went tits up, and I stumbled across this interesting article by Sally Fallon and Dr. Mary... (more)
i can go 24+ hours fasting with little hunger. there is an obvious drop in physical energy, but the real issue is that a sly form of anger, aggression and depression kicks in - the world just isn't friendly in this state of mind. obviously an easy... (more)
I've been strictly Paleo since end of May 2011. I'm happy to report I've lost 11 lbs and with the help of my trainer my body is really transforming into something magnificent. Only problem that has come along for me is that ONE of my eyebrows... (more)
I've heard that very low carb can cause hypothyroid symptoms (can someone with more knowledge verify or tell me if I'm way off here). How many carbs are you eating?
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2858203/ Fasting normal subjects were given 300-calorie drinks of either glucose, saturated fat as cream, orange juice, or only water to ingest. The intake of glucose did not result in any... (more)
Today I picked up a fresh coho salmon on sale. I filleted it badly, and now have an odd mix of chunks and bones. I froze a lot of it in water for later eating. Of what remains: -The meaty bones will get simmered in a pot to make soup, along with... (more)
First off I want to say thanks to everyone for all the great tips and advice. I am 24 and been struggling with pimples all my life. Paleo helped but did not stop it. Here is my cure, I felt compelled to share. Natural Face Wash: just rinse... (more)
I suffered pretty severe acne that was exacerbated by certain foods. Supplementing Vit A at 20-40k IU daily has been the biggest help in my personal situation and now the acne is completely gone for the most part no matter what I eat.
I was thinking about making my own chocolate and was looking into cocoa butter. It looks ok, and it smells delicious. Why don't people eat more of it/cook with it? Here's a comparison vs coconut of differences I could find (from... (more)
I've heard mixed things about this, but is (homemade) kombucha good to drink on such a diet? Or is this one of those things where it depends on the person? To help me decide if I should give it a try I tried looking up what kinds of species are... (more)
I personally would not think that drinking kombucha while trying to eliminate candida makes sense as there is definitely left over sugar that is not consumed by the yeast which could effectively feed the candida in your body. This is completely... (more)
I'd like to try making some lacto fermented veggies. I don't do dairy anymore but make coconut yogurt. Is the strained 'whey' from that usable for lacto fermenting like dairy whey? Thanks!
