Folks, Please provide me with any scientific sources that state that saturated fat is good for liver and other alcohol-damaged organs! Thank you! :)

My grandfather, 88, and his two sisters, 90 and 91, swear that they used to eat 1/4 cup of butter before going out and drinking back in the day to keep them from feeling sick the next day. They said it "coats the stomach". I don't know about it... (more)

I'll complete my 3rd week on paleo tomorrow and I'm seriously wanting to know if anyone my age (55) has ever entered the paleo world after a lifetime of SAD eating. I don't know if it's because I lost my gall bladder in my 20s or what, but there... (more)

I don't think 55 is all that old, frankly, and kudos to you for trying to get a leg up on your health for the years to come! :) I would say that, because you are missing your gallbladder, the type of fat you consume would seemingly matter. I... (more)

If it isn't broke. . . But I think you could add some raw pastured butter and some tallow without having any problems. Butter and pastured beef fat (tallow) are full of vitamins, CLA and lots of other goodness that's hard to find in other sources. (more)

In addition to maintaining a relatively strict diet, I pretty much religiously adhere to a few basic rules, including the total elimination of wheat and glutinous grains. I'm ashamed to say, however, that I still possess a profound love for these... (more)

Eat clean paleo with no cheating. Be cognizant of keeping your pufas low and balanced. Keep fructos intake to a bare minimum. That will take care of the oxidation and glycation. You also may want to consider low carb initially.

Conundrum posed to me was that by restricting dietary carbs and "forcing" the liver to pretty much "create" them out of fats, the liver is actually performing a function that it "can, but shouldn't do" and that was extra wear and tear on the poor... (more)

Does anybody know the ramifications of exercise with alcohol in your system? I completely understand the concept is horrible. The reason I ask though is that a few years back, I used to play soccer on a team that always met up for drinks before... (more)

I do it every once in a while. I will have a 24 ounce beer and then a hour later I will jog for 30 minutes. Seems that the running stops the effects of the alcohol after 8 minutes, but I jog fine and feel great. Seems that moderate drinking is ok,... (more)

Did you have prior gout attacks? Did you, for example, have one where your big toe was involved? Most gout attacks start from there and move onto other joints. It's rare for gout to start from another joint.

Are you gluten intolerant or do you have celiac? If not, don't worry, it was just one piece. Mistakes will happen and I think it's best to just move on and not fret over minutia.

I see kids who eat pizza, processed food, fair amounts of sugar etc, and remain seemingly fit and functional. But as they age, even if their diet does not change, they begin packing on the pounds, and become more and more disabled and diseased... (more)

Yeah, I think it takes a while to become damaged. This may happen a tad faster if you are older and hence weaker, but I think there is definitely an incubation period. People from other countries that eat healthier tend to remain healthier for a... (more)
