High Fat Questions
Hello! I started paleo about 2 months ago and from all the information I read, I always thought paleo was about eating until you were satisfied as long as it was the right kind of food. Then I discovered ketosis and found out I need to limit... (more)

It occurred to me tonight that the reason high carb diets tend work may be because it allows the body to synthesize the right fats. Pure and simple... If you have good gut flora and a healthy metabolism and good insulin response, your body/flora... (more)

Anyone got any suggestions for a fat for cooking that has balanced sat/mono/polys (1/3, 1/3, 1/3) and balanced omegas as well (2:1 omega 6 to 3)? (or at least something with roughly even mono/sat proportions, and semi-reasonable omega balance, so... (more)
What would be the effects of eating 70-85% of your calories from fat in the form of coconut oil, 10-20% from protein in the form of various meats, and 5-10% from carbohydrate in the form of various fibrous vegetables? I understand that... (more)
70% of your calories being completely void of nutrition? Does not sound like a good plan.
Hello everyone ..About 4 weeks ago i started with intermittent fasting combined with a massive increase in the consumption of dietary fat. Nevertheless, my carb intake didn't go quite as low as one would expect (it's pretty hard for me to do so).... (more)
What are some very high fat cuts of meat that i can look out for? I already eat pork belly/bacon, rib eye, sausages, and found some good fatty lamb legs recently aswell Most meat i see in the supermarkets is so lean so i'm going to... (more)
lamb and duck are pretty fatty, tongue is fatty, marrow and brain are mostly fat, and beef cheek is pretty fatty too (well, the beef cheeks I got were pretty fatty) but cheek is pretty tricky since you need to braise at a low temperature it for... (more)
I'm very sensitive to carbs so I started eating low carb, high fat, and moderate-high protein about a year ago and day by day I've been looking worse & worse, it's literally like I've sped up the aging process. As my carb issues feel... (more)
I really like mayonnaise and eat it with a lot of things, almond butter is amazing, bulletproof coffee will get fat in really easily, and I do a lot of coconut milk "milkshakes" with stevia and cocoa powder.
I was told that low carb and high fat diet will result in insulin resistance. I've been following a low carb diet for a while and have been feeling well and losing weight. I would usually throw in a day of eating lots of carbs for leptin,... (more)
If you really want to understand what's going on inside your body when you do this read a book called GRAIN BRAIN by Dr. David Perlmutter, MD. Your 1day carb binge is horrible for your entire body!
This might seem strange, but it's something I've noticed with myself. So, growing up I was a bad nail biter, but through some sheer force of will I stopped that. A couple of years ago I transitioned to paleo and still, all was fine. Then I... (more)
I'm wondering about the effects of a diet that is high fat but still very low calorie, about 1300 give or take. What the effect would be on body composition, weight, maybe even hormones? I upped my fat intake about two weeks ago. I did so... (more)
I've been gradually increasing fats and decreasing carbs after going high-carb, medium-fat for almost a year, mostly because I want to see what the effect of a different diet will be. Carb and fat intake are currently each about 100g, three weeks... (more)
I need alot if calories in a day and I need tons of fat but I'm worried about how much protein I'm getting. When I don't monitor my intake, I can get up to 180-190 grams, and I'm only 110 pounds. So are there any foods high in fat, that aren't too... (more)
Fatty, homemade bone broth, sausages, homemade almond butter (no sugar added), if you tolerate dairy, goat and sheep cheese. Ribs, pork belly, 80% fat hamburgers, tuna, salmon, oysters with olive oil.
Fat-adaptation and keto-adaptation seem similar -- I hear some people use them interchangeably. But I thought they involved completely different energy substrates (your mitochondria are oxidizing fatty acids vs. ketones, right?) Are the two... (more)
I've been low carbing for two months, consuming under 100g for the first month and 100-150g the second month. I increased carbs due to low energy and sluggish workouts and I've noticed some improvements but nothing significant. I need to up my... (more)
Okay, straight up, I'm new to this. I'm coming from 80/10/10 high carb raw vegan (yeah I know what you're thinking), so I'm about 1 month into Paleo now. I'm doing a ton of research daily, but I don't know if I'm really getting the whole picture,... (more)
I am using myfitnesspal.com to track everything as best as I can. I am 29, male, 5'11" about 180-185, a bit of a larger build to my frame and CrossFit about 5-6 times a week. According to everything I plugged in, my Normal Daily Activity caloric... (more)
So I am doing a low-carb/ketogenic diet to help my brain and my digestion, NOT to lose weight. (Please dont tell me carbs aren't bad, I have candida/dysbiosis issues and high carb makes them worse.) One of the problems I ran into with low carb... (more)
egg nog made out of canned coconut milk and egg yolks raw or cooked has quite a bit of saturated fat in it...i know the yolks have some pufas but it might make it easier to drink back a can of coconut milk like that.
It seems I get a bet of nausea and acid reflux right after a drink cream on an empty stomach. I use ecological cream and I take lactrase enzymes with it so that the lactose won't be a problem. Why do I get this symptoms?
Lactose may not be the problem. Lots of people cannot tolerate casein, which is a protein found in milk. There is no pill to reduce casein, like there is for lactose. A big dose of fat on an empty stomach may cause reflux.
Hey there, I've asked a similar question before, but I didn't really get all the answers I was looking for.. SO I am going to ask a different one- I am attempting to bulk up, training 6x a week, one day of HIT cardio, the rest generally lifting... (more)
Hey there, I'm 17 years old, and I'm trying to bulk as leanly as possible. I really started eating primally about 3 weeks ago, limiting my carbs and eating alot more fat, from things like coconut products( A TON) fattier meat, (only grass... (more)
The thing I do not understand is what the body does in relation to excess fat intake, if we assume a low-carb diet. Apparently acylation stimulating protein is created in response to chylomicrons which exist after eating fat, and can thus cause... (more)
Ok, so I've been eating something that more or less resembles a primal diet for a year now. I've lost 30 pounds, and most of that was done doing what I'd call low-fat high-carb paleo. I ate TONS of fruit, yogurt, nuts, and some lean meats and... (more)
