Hi! I would appreciate some opinions on my regimen. I am on an acne-friendly paleo version and am seeing results, so the diet is clearing up my face. I am also losing tons of weight and am concerned if I can maintain this lifestyle, because I feel... (more)

The mentioned criticism from Matt and Sabertooth is true, but I still think it can be ok. A paleo diet rich in coconut cream/oil sure is a lot better than SAD. You could try to avoid nutrient deficiency by adding very nutrient dense foods like... (more)

The nutrition facts label and the recommended dietary allowance labels are extremely beneficial. The problem is, especially in this community, they do not accurately represent modern understanding of health (300g of carbs with at least 24 being... (more)

I'd like to see artificial additive warning labels, something that tells people that a product contains garbage that might kill you.

Sort of a general question - I've never been tested for food allergies. I'm not sure I even have any, but have always been curious. Or even food sensitivities: would love to know what my body chemistry can and can't metabolize so well. Thing is,... (more)

If you have some time to kill you can try the Coca Pulse Test on yourself. It can be kind of a pain to do because you have to ingest things in isolation, and most of us have pretty varied diets. But it is still neat to see what you react... (more)

So I usually use calorie-count's logging system to log my calories and track my macronutrient ratios. The site makes a potentially tedious task easy. It's also got this nifty feature that allows you to tweak your desired macro percentages, and... (more)

I have used them before and I really like it. Usually took only 1/3 of the serving; 1/2 a tablet in the morning and 1/2 tablet with post workout meal.

I just pulled my quad yesterday playing baseball. Is there any foods I should be eating to quicken the healing process?

The best thing for a pulled quad is first a hot tub for 20 min and then a slow swim in a pool twice a day. I have healed quads and hamstrings in less than a week with this regime. Not much nutritionally can be done. Just have to allow the... (more)
