First of all you don't need to get sore to build muscle, and the longer you train the less frequently you will experience DOMS. Furthermore, soreness is induced mainly from the eccentric portion of a lift, so doing a 1 rep max on deadlift there is... (more)

What's the hold time for refrigerating bacon once it's cooked? Also can you freeze cooked bacon? I want to make mini bacon bowls in advance and am not sure exactly how to store them.

What's the nutritional difference? How does the fatty acid profile differ? I'm sure someone can pull up a decent study - the USDA food database doesn't distinguish, of course.

I can't help you with the studies but I am assuming that you're interested just to see if pastured products are 'worth it' for you, and you want to see if you can back it up with peer reviewed science. I don't know about any 'studies', but... (more)

If I bought a jar of sauerkraut, but it was under-fermented, I mean barely sour, does it make sense to leave it out of the fridge for a while to continue its fermenting? It wasn't pasteurized.

Hi guys! I was wondering about bacon! It's clearly something a lot of people who eat paleo eat! Is there a certain type to eat/not eat?? And presumably it's best to not eat too regularly or is that mainly up to how much you feel is enough?

Nitrate/nitrite-free is a gimmick, don't bother. A little sugar for the cure, completely fine! It's much more important that the actual meat be good quality, rather than focusing excessively on the cure used.

Idk that there's any way to know, aside from removing things 1 by 1, then adding them back in and seeing what caused it. It also happened once, so it may not be anything that's any sort of big deal.
