I'm curious if anyone has been diagnosed and treated for adult HGH deficiency. Can these shots improve energy, stamina, bone density and body comp? Is chronically low HGH in adults below 50 or 60 years old a problem that should be treated, or is... (more)
Again, my lipids fail to improve across the board as usual no matter what intervention I employ: https://app.box.com/s/vlhjt4x9wck1plp1lbe9 (most current values in last two columns; please use the + button to enlarge the values for better viewing)... (more)
I am also part of those US communities who depend on fast food due to my very tight schedule. All of Americans mostly use the fatty diet which is full of processed food, which increase the level of fat in our body. always ready to eat meals,... (more)
I have been eating paleo about two weeks. My appetite is greatly reduced, which I am happy about. However today I had three egg whites for breakfast (sometimes I just like the taste without yolks) at 7:00am and around 10:00am I began to feel... (more)
Do not use protein for energy. Simple. Eat fat or carbohydrate for energy. Egg whites and chicken breast was a bolus of protein, with little energy. You simply were undereating.
I'm training for a half marathon and I'm up in the 8-10 mile range and fairly new to paleo. I typically eat some eggs and bacon and a half of banana or so before the training runs, and nothing during. Just water. My last two training runs, I've... (more)
I started the Paleo Diet about 2 and a half years ago. Before I was close, only difference was for breakfast I would have Kashi cereal or oatmeal soaked overnight. But as I mentioned I started the Paleo Diet. 3 months after I started I... (more)
Correlation does not equal causation; two things happening at the same time doesn't mean one caused the other. It might not have anything to do with your diet at all.

I use coconut oil (extra virgin) for everything. Hair, skin, teeth, and cooking. I think it's a wonderful, amazing gift. But, I wonder how environmentally friendly it is, as it's still harvested in tropical or warm regions. Whether the coconut... (more)
If there is enough demand for coconut oil, they will slash and burn vast acreage to grow it, too. Palm oil is just used in more things, so it needs more land. There is no truly sustainable anything when we demand more and more.
OK I tried finding this via Google and other blog posts but I have not found an answer or solution so here it goes: Last year I tried a ketogenic diet and everything is great! Except that it started to burn when I would pee. (Sorry TMI?) If I... (more)
The internet suggests that it's possible to freeze cauliflower. I want to freeze it already chopped up in a food processor. What's the best way to do this? Do you freeze cauliflower rice? Do you freeze it raw but chopped, or do you freeze it after... (more)
It seems that Vitamin C is extremely easy to get in almost every fruit and vegetable. Today I ate Strawberries, Brussel Sprouts, and Kale for a total of 4-500% RDA of Vitamin C. I feel like it is very easy to get copious amounts of Vitamin C from... (more)
I've been having bleeding under the skin which I finally realized was a case of "solar purpura" or "actineal purpura". From what I understand, years of sun damage (from my childhood on a tropical island and years of driving with my arm on the car... (more)
What is the one single food item that dominates the satisfaction of your caloric intake on a daily basis? ... and why that item? caloric food liquids like milk count too
Related to this question I was wondering what the downsides of homogenised dairy were, if any. I've also just accidentally come into possession of a large pot of "extra thick" (homogenised) double cream, so was wondering. The homogenisation... (more)
Pretty much all my health issues have been solved via the paleo/primal diet except for my most long standing issue. I have been chronically constipated since age 2 or so(I'm 20). There were times in my SAD life that I went only once every 7-10... (more)
I have read through the fabulous book, Nutrition and physical degeneration, by Price, but have been unable to find specific food sources that would allow many tropical cultures (melanesians, eg.) to acquire high amounts of calcium. He made special... (more)
Okay, I added "disgusting" in the title to get you to look... plus, I'm very new to Paleo and I'm coming from a vegan background. I know Paleo (the autoimmune version) I'm following will help, at least I'm confident it will, but cooking meat is... (more)
You know, veggies can contain bacteria and other contaminants in concentrations just as high as meat, therefore why they are so often implicated in outbreaks involving E. coli, listeria, botulism, salmonella, etc. As a matter of fact, you can... (more)
Someone brought this up in another question and I thought it deserved its own question. If traditional diets are so good, why do people crave modern foods and move away from their traditional diets? Is there something missing in traditional diets? (more)
My own view is that people switch away from traditional foods because hyperpalatibility of modern foods subverts our adaptive hunger and cravings. See Stephan Guyenet's series on food reward and The End of Overeating. Modernization requires... (more)
Hi everyone. I have brought this topic up beofre but didnt go into quite as much depth. I have a cousin of mine but am very sceptical as to the validity of his testimony. He says that he lost 45kg in the span of 12mnths. When i asked about his... (more)
Undoubtedly everyone is aware of the food shortages around the world that have sparked violence recently. This is not meant to be a political question. I find it interesting and wonder how some of us would survive without our staples... (more)
