Going high fat too quickly can cause bowel problems if you aren't adapted to digesting the extra fat. Ramp up slowly to give the liver/gall bladder the ability to process the fat (more bile is required). I'm not saying you need to go high fat, but... (more)

I don't think isolating butter as a cholesterol culprit is appropriate. Butter is one of the healthiest fat to consume. A low triglyceride and high HDL profile points to an LDL that is virtually all the light, fluffy benign (or possibly... (more)

From what I can gather, some Paleos prefer to avoid butter due to the dairy association. In my opinion, this is somewhat misguided given that the problem with dairy is the lactose (and possibly casein protein). Butter, by definition, is milk fat... (more)

Depending on what you are eating, your paleo diet may have weakened your gut (e.g. if you consume nuts and oats), lectins are a possible cause of leaky gut. (Note: dairy intolerance would more likely cause flatulence, so I get the impression... (more)

Based on your physical description of yourself you shouldn't be worried about the potential minor weight shift of eating a bit of yogurt. Some people gain or lose eating dairy - relax.

I don't know the brand, but the only ingredient should be cream. If it has other stuff, buy a different brand or make your own. Lots of stuff can affect the taste, from contaminants in the environment to different plants that the cows find to eat. (more)

Egg protein is great...good inbetween of whey and casein. If you have a reliable source to get fresh eggs from, have em raw. If not, you can buy the powder or just east eggs after your workout (hardboiled if you want immediately after)
