Folks, Please provide me with any scientific sources that state that saturated fat is good for liver and other alcohol-damaged organs! Thank you! :)
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)
Hello all. love the site. I looked around for similar subjects and didn't see any with my specifics so here goes. I've been eating Paleo for about 3 months now. Pretty strict, rarely cheating. I've lost about 35lbs and have another 15 to go. I... (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)
I understand that since I have done HCG in the past, my Leptin Receptors and or Hypothalamus might be damaged. I have been doing the Paleo Lifestyle for 8 weeks now, and would like to know if there is a way... as in foods to eat or gasp... (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)
My right ring finger is in excruciating pain on and off. When I try to use it, it flares up. This happened to me a week or two ago, as well. I've had tendonitis in this hand in the past, and it felt nothing like the nerve pain I'm experiencing.... (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)
