I've been strict paleo for almost a year. The few times I've "cheated," and consumed very small amounts of gluten, I've gotten pretty ill. The symptoms included headache, joint ache, and upset stomach, as well as a change in mood. This makes me... (more)
Before starting paleo, I had fairly frequent urination, but it wasn't too problematic. Since starting paleo, I feel better in every single way except now I urinate even more frequently than before -- at worst, it's several times an hour. This has... (more)
ABSOLUTELY get yourself to a doctor! Every so often, stress can make frequent urination happen, but it doesn't last more than 1 day. However, please do not hesitate in getting into see a physician. Today.
I've become aware of the fact that my teeth are starting to be more translucent (especially the front, but also the tops of the others). I did some research on this and it seems that I have some dental erosion going on. Since the summer I'd been... (more)
I noticed Patrick Cameron is competing in the powerlifting meet at the Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus during the first weekend of March. I'll be there myself competing in the masters weightlifting. Anyone else going and if so, should we get... (more)
I noticed recently that people were talking about ways to stay just one the edge of ketosis and what not. I guess my questions is, why would you want to stay in glycolysis instead of going into ketosis (and vise-versa)? What are the benefits of... (more)
Ok, I have started this journey into a new life by only reading Robb's book. My daughter started doing Crossfit, and it was recommended. I like the concept completely. But when it comes to making the numbers happen, like how much vit d, how do I... (more)
I realize that some people don't look at nutrition data at all, and that is wonderful, but I find that I do better when I check a few times a week to see how well I am eating. I have used Fit Day in the past but it seems so slow and cumbersome. ... (more)
I track my food intake through CRON-O-METER and just ran a report. The strict paleo regime I've been following looks pretty amazing when vitamins and lipids are analyzed. The only glaring gap in the whole shebang seems to be Vitamin E, which... (more)
My guess would be that RDA for vitamin E assumes that the diet is high in polyunsaturated fats and thus the level is higher than it needs to be. A diet low in polyunsaturated fats wouldn't require the same level of vitamin E.
I can't buy an expensive filter right now... and I don't want fluoride or any other chemicals in my water. Does distilled water really deplete the body of minerals? Do we really get that many minerals from regular water? What is the healthiest... (more)
Next to my couch, near the TV sits a 35 lb kettlebell staring up at me. Everytime I swing it my fiance thinks I might toss it through the 4th floor window onto the cars below. What are some good routines and exercises I can do with such a device?... (more)
I have been on warrior/paleo for about four days straight.. longest I have been on a diet haha. After four days it said I lost six pounds!! On the fifth day I gave in and BINGED on sugar foods like it was my last day on earth. Anyways I stepped... (more)
Last night I had yet another sugar binge... I am still learning how to deal with it. I had a craving for popcorn and figured it wasn't THAT bad for paleo. All of a sudden I wanted more and more carbs. Didn't turn out so well for me hahah.. ... (more)
I work at an Optometrists office, and a persons blood sugar definitely can affect their vision. In fact, sometimes a change in vision can be one of the first indicators of insulin resistence or diabetes.
Do you get your nutritional need for energy from bugs? Have you eaten bugs, worms, snails, wasps, bees, larvae? How wild or primal is your diet really? Or are you just following a marketing label?!
First off I want to state that I don't have access to grass fed meat and I'm not too keen on fish (Except sushimi). I've been reading a bit more about linoleic acid and Susan Allport's little "Supersize me" like expose on omega 6. "The change in... (more)
Hi Folks, I've been eating paleo (with a few beans and some high fat dairy sparingly) for about 3 weeks now, and I have noticed that my tolerance for spicy foods has gone through the roof. I've always enjoyed it, but jalape??o level or above... (more)
When wild, meat-eating animals make a kill, what organs do they most prefer to eat? Does a single animal, say, prefer liver one day, but then specifically goes for heart the next, and yet another organ on another day? Or do they have a hierarchy... (more)
I realize that edamame isn't paleo, and I have no intention making it a regular part of my diet. This is more of a theoretical question. I've read that traditionally Asian cultures only use fermented soy as a staple. What about plain edamame? Is... (more)
I've been hunting for a good coconut milk with no or at least minimum industrial stabilizers and preservatives. I found a brand called Aroy-D that produces coconut milk and also cream in paper cartons(so no BPA from cans) Here's a picture. One... (more)
Does anyone have any good lists or references to the different levels of insulin released from various types of food? I know that sugar and dairy have higher responses than say protein, but I am under the impression that different types of protein... (more)
