Totally agree with the other posters. You need to focus on weight loss/gain over a longer period of time. Take the same approach that you would with the stock market- day to day you'll find yourself both up and down, but the key is not making... (more)

Would recommend you search for this topic on Marks Daily Apple. Also in book length you have the fantastic research summaries from Taubes and Teicholz

Hey all- Relatively new to the Paleo Diet but am so happy with the results so far.  My question is: if you eat a moderate amount of fruit in a day, do you need to watch the fats you then take in? Are the sugars in the fruit going to... (more)

The low ketone reading is probably due to the fact that you're in energy balance, as evidenced by weight maintenance.  In many contexts (and this is likely one of them), calories DO matter... ketogenic diets are very effective at... (more)

As we know, a change in diet definitely has the potential to affect how people feel both physically and psychologically. So perhaps without even realizing it, you may have somehow been 'mentally' relying on one or more of the foods that you... (more)

The ones next to your cuticle. I used to have prominent ones before paleo. They gradually disappeared so I'm curious what that means.

Nope, meaningless. Though if you believe the internet, they'll diagnose anything and everything. I'm pretty sure they're a sign you're going to die in the next 150 years or so.

I've been eating Paleo for the past 2 months. Recently I've altered to a low-carb diet (50g) or less. On days that I don't work out, I feel great, am rarely hungry and mental clarity is superb. Whenver I workout, whether it be morning, afternoon... (more)

Eat a giant sweet potato bathed in butter... Seriously though eat some carbs!!! HF/LC can cause high levels of cortisol. Paleo is not low carb.

Probably not.  Most likely its due to the dietary a change, and your body being thrown out of homeostasis.   Evolutionarily speaking, a change to dietary input could signal a change to available food resources.... (more)

Why not do egg based eating some days, offal on some days (liver, kidneys, heart, sweetbreads - wide range of nutrients in these) and fish or shellfish on some days. You'd be covering a very wide base of minerals etc with that and your usual veg /... (more)

Try a zinc tally test AKA zinc challenge.  This is a liquid form of zinc that you'd put a few drops of on your tongue and taste.  If you notice no taste at all, i.e. just like water, then you need zinc.  The stronger the taste, the... (more)

it could be the glycine in skin and tendons and cartilage, or other substances present only in cartilage (chondroitin etc.). But it could also be vitamin K2, which is more abundant in chicken than in other meats. Whole chicken is underappreciated... (more)
