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)

Good Diet for acne overall. I also found chia seeds to be an excellent source of ALA omega 3's which also help calm down inflammation and improve the post acne red stains on the skin and they are incredibly affordable as very little is needed for... (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)

The vitamin A is a bit high. You need more vitamin D to balance it out - either sunshine or supplement. The magnesium oxide is useless. Recommend you supplement 200-400mg of magnesium citrate in the evening. The folic acid is too high as well. The... (more)

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

Apply ice for the first 24-48 hours, heat after that (30 minutes at a time for each, a few times a day). Completely rest it if possible. Hard to rest a quad if you have to walk around, but even minor movement will lengthen healing times... (more)

I rotate between them so I don't get too much beta carotene from the orange ones and because the taste difference keeps things interesting. The ones I buy are called (by my market) "garnet yams," "sweet potato," "oriental sweet potato" and "jewel... (more)
