Just from the fact the MK4 is taken in milligrams and MK7 in micrograms, it seems that MK4 is safer. Also, I read on another forum that MK7 doesn't have that effect on teeth.

I get a great rush of energy & sense of real nutrition whenever i eat fish high in omega 3, it just feels like clean stable energy as i get no crashes later on I don't bother with suppliments, sardines are cheap!

Mandy, there's only 4 carbs in a 5 ounce pour of red wine. I think it's totally reasonable to fit in 5-10 grams of carbs a week from wine. That's less carbohydrate than is in most fruits. A 3/4 cup serving of strawberries comes in at 8 grams of... (more)

Why paleo? Why not grains and dairy? And, what is the payoff for giving them up? What is on the other side of the discomfort (pain) and effort of giving up foods I am addicted to to begin changing to this way of eating?

I'd suggest reading the books the others have suggested - but ultimately try it for 30 days. Only you can judge how it works for you and how different you feel. And, after the 30 days, if it wasn't for you, what've you lost?!
