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)

I was wondering what I could use as natural sun protection when playing sports. I spend close to six hours or more daily in the sun because my job requires it, and I use to wear sunscreen religiously until last year. I know the sun is great and... (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)

I noticed my best results, in respect to both body composition and day to day energy, when I stopped counting, nit-picking and trying to fine tune things to perfection. I just let my body guide me. Some days I probably eat upwards of 3k... (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.

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)

The body views alcohol in a similar way it does sugar. It will burn the alcohol for fuel before anything else, so if fat loss is a goal, alcohol is like pushing the "stop" button on fat burning. It will also cause any carbs waiting to be used as... (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)

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

Sure, I love my liver soaked in some wine then cooked in coconut oil. Totally good for it. Don't know how to scientifically prove it though. Isn't it kinda subjective? And I wouldn't call it damaged from the alcohol anyhow....it's more of a... (more)

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.

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)
