You stomach is not really empty, but is already full. When the water arrives it has to leave fairly quickly, starting within 5 minutes into the small intestine, and more or less all gone in half an hour.

The idea that humans lack taste receptors for amino acids is not correct, now that glutamate is recognized as the driver behind foods having a "umami" taste. There's also developing research that certain amino acids (like arganine, glutamine,... (more)

I'm studying computer science right now (2 years ago I liked mathematics and wanted a cool career, so I decided computer science would probably be best), but after a year of paleo I'm starting to hate computers more and more. They are just boring.... (more)

I worked for 18 years with great pay and excellent benefits and had a stable job and a comfortable environment. My boss loved me. But I started hating what I was doing, my heart was not in it. So I quit and now I am going back to school. There... (more)

Many arguments for paleo eating rely on an evolutionary biology, i.e. we ate a certain way for x number of years and therefore are not adapted to neolithic foods. But, as Kurt Harris has written, not all evolutionarily novel foods are... (more)

Hey guys, I have to prepare a very short (less than 10 minute, which sucks) presentation for my biology class. I'm choosing evolutionary biology as it pertains to diet and the paleo diets effects and place in our modern society. I wanted to run... (more)

PortlandAllan is partly correct in saying "birds" But not all birds are adapted to eating grass seeds (i.e., grains). Most of the grain-adapted species include chickens (and their ancestor the jungle fowl), the Columbids (pigeons and doves),... (more)
