I think a lot of people use refined usgar and refined carbs as mood regulators. Conciously and sub-conciously.   Plus both gluten and gliadin contain exorphins- they interact with your opiod receptors. So wheat acts a bit like... (more)

Do you know if you're okay with wheat, or is it possible wheat is part of your problem? I have a long yo-yo history so I've been overweight/obese more than I've been lean. Needless to say, even on easygoing paleo I feel the best ever. I don't... (more)

Do you find that ketosis is associated with feeling a certain way, in the body, or in the mind? Or in the emotions? If and when you shift over to ketosis, or from ketosis, do you feel a shift? If so, what characterizes this shift? Note that I... (more)

Mind: Calm, I can do math better. I feel smarter in ketosis, but I also feel more happy and in-tune with Mother Nature. Body: I only need 5 hours of sleep max and I feel "naturally energetic." Cut the caffeine out COMPLETELY and go into ketosis... (more)

I've been working on a 90/10 compliant paleo diet with IF with a once-a-day evening meal for about 4 months. In general it has been working great, my weight is down 27 lbs and is still dropping. However, every once in a while I notice that I get... (more)

Dutchie, If you truly drink alcohol because of emotional reasons, you probably need to quit and stay quit. If you do you will experience life on life's terms. When you drink to handle emotions you simply stunt your emotional growth and cannot... (more)

I understand the purpose of fear, pleasure, and anger (fear of death/anger/fighting for survival, pleasure from sex/reproducing etc), but what purpose would sadness have served? Or is sadness a modern thing?

I would think it is designed to make build empathy and love for those around us, fostering relationships to ensure the community aspect of the species. Feeling sadness over the loss of a child/friend/etc ensures the desire to protect from harm,... (more)

It sounds like you may have gone too low-carb. I'd try including some squashes and potatoes, maybe supplement with some 5-HTP for a couple of weeks and see how you feel.

Sounds more like some more sleep is in order! But man or woman, you don't want to be worrying about what you eat if you're not feeling on top of things. On the other hand, it clearly hasn't killed you so take it as a learning experience and see... (more)

Taking 600mg of magnesium could have quite a significant anti-acid effect, which might be interfering with your digestion/absorption. Undigested or slowly food makes me lethargic and lifeless for certain. I take mine when I'm not eating to be on... (more)
