I gave up eggs on a trial basis to see if it would help my endometriosis. What it did do was reverse the severe constipation I've had for years. How can I know if this constipation is a simple constituency of stool problem, and therefore can... (more)
You have to put some EFFORT into pooping, repeat the Mantra "I WILL LIVE OR DIE BY MY POOP!" There can be no distractions, you must commit yourself to 5 years of hard, long training as a Poop Ninja, don't bother me with your excuses, until you... (more)
Those of you who have a coconut/nut intolerance, what are the symptoms that led you to this conclusion? A few months ago I noticed that any time I have a meal large in coconut product I get bloated and have uncomfortable stomach issues. I've also... (more)
Hi guys, long time since I've been on this forum, I've kind of drifted away from paleo, perhaps because I've been on Prozac for the last six months (came off a month ago) and am no longer depressed and as a result perhaps not so orthorexic I had... (more)
I went full blown fatty meat only and ketosis paleo in January, and stayed that way until May. I had zero problems with eating huge meals of the fattiest meat. My body seemed to scream thank you. I ate 2500-3000 cal a day this way (gained... (more)
About two years ago I started to experience this disgusting fishy taste when I burped, I do not take fish oil supplements or any medication apart from a probiotic and spirulina. The taste would continue for a long time and effect what I ate, how I... (more)
I am wondering if there is any help out there for fat intolerance, as my husband loves nuts, but cannot tolerate any type of fat. Pre-paleo we thought that it was milk that was causing his symptoms and thought that living dairy free would free him... (more)
Sounds like an issue with the liver or gallbladder. An ox bile supplement would be a good place to start. Biotics Beta Plus or Panplex 2-Phase are the brands my naturopath recommends.
So, I've discovered that making your own fermented things is super-satisfying, but I'm dairy-intolerant and thus have a limited number of ways to start ferments! Sauerkraut and veggies are fine on their own of course, but I'd like to make coconut... (more)
This is a follow-up for this question. It's pretty clear that paleo is not a band-aid for most of us. In my case, I ended up with a dairy and orange juice intolerance. A couple of months before paleo I was able to eat those with no issues, after... (more)
Is eating the same food almost everyday a sure way to become intolerant to that food or is that just a myth? Traditional cultures seem to have no problems , I think, from consuming the same thing day in day out.
My son has a "true" allergy to brazil nuts which could kill him. My feel is that the rest is intolerance due to leaky gut. I was "allergic to everything" and they all went away when I stopped eating wheat. Gotta heal the gut.
I went paleo, I eventually put 2 + 2 together and realised that I was intolerant to milk. I used to drink a pint every few days pre-paleo but when I changed, even a splash in my coffee would have my stomach make the weirdest noises, I'd have gas... (more)
Hi! I am thinking about starting a Paleo lifestyle, or at least try whole30 (for general better health (I have IBS, migraines and random/vague pains) and weight loss), but I am not 100% sure yet. I thought "trying won't hurt", but now I am reading... (more)
I was allergic to eggs big time. Found out it was what the chickens were eating. Soy. Almost all chickens are fed a vegetarian diet of soy. Even the free-range chickens are given supplemental feed. Soy free egg = no egg allergy.
Back in 2004 I was self diagnosed with Lactose intolerance. I was bad enough off that even a chocolate bar would set off my lactose intolerance. Last year I found out (like most everyone else) that I am gluten intolerant. I did a little digging... (more)
Absolutely, as a matter of fact, gluten, gliadin, and host of other "goodies" found in wheat actually damage the small intestine cells that make the enzyme that digests lactose (called lactase). Its very common to see the return of these cells to... (more)
Hi folks, is there anybody out there, who can't tolerate beef tallow? And if yes, what do you think is the underlying cause? (Supposed other fats aren't a problem) I heard of beef allergies due to a tick bite, or a cross reaction to milk... (more)
I was wondering if any celiacs, or anyone who had severe gluten sensitivity such as cross contamination after X number of months on Paleo, GAPS, etc. was able to reintroduce cross-contaminated or even a bite of gluten (such as fermented sourdough)... (more)
I am not talking about allergies, but about milder food intolerance. How do people approach this to quantify and measure it? I have read that most serum lab blood tests are useless. Prick tests? Elimination and reintroduction seems to be the... (more)
An allergy is to a protein, a sensitivity or intolerance is referring to a non-protein food issue. My strongly preferred method to determine these in a body is elimination and reintroduction of potentially offending foods. I've seen wrong... (more)
I am badly bloated most of the time,especially after drinking and eating,even from little food.I am also prone to severe constipation due to laxative abuse perhaps.I know,my gut flora is out of balance and it seems like everything gets stuck in... (more)
I could understand issues with dairy and wheat, they are to some extent, neolithic, so some people aren't adapted to handle them, but eggs have been in our evolutionary history for a long time, at least I think they have, yet many people can't... (more)
From "Lysozyme from Egg Whites" by Loren Cordain.. "Should everybody include eggs in their diet on a daily basis? Not necessarily, particularly if we examine the evolutionary template. Without question our preagricultural ancestors would have... (more)
I've been eating eggs (almost) every day for the past 2 months (4 egg yolks and 1 egg white every day). I removed the egg yolks because I heard of the anti-nutrients in the egg whites. Eggs are cheap, tasty, handy, ... Unfortunately, there is... (more)
First post here and I'm posting in a bit of a desperate state, looking for help. Background: Male, 42 years - History of digestive problems that were more or less in a manageable state eating roughly a WAPF style diet. Went relatively high fat... (more)
I always drop weight when I go zero carb too. I'm 5'6 and 108lbs but zero carb always makes me drop to 104lbs. I am super active and burn calories like a mutha and fairly muscular. It used to scare me that I would lose weight. And I would weigh... (more)
I have been doing Paleo since March..Moe Paleo 2.0 these days as I've added tubers and some whole grassfed dairy(dairy in limited quantities). About 2 weeks ago I noticed a gnawing stomach ache after breakfast. Like a hard cramping in my actual... (more)
Oh no.. that's one hell of an allergic reaction! Stop eating eggs in any form and toss what you have. I only say this because there are people who are so allergic that even if egg touches them they go into anaphylactic shock and have to carry an... (more)
Ok here it goes. I am new to the Paleo/Primal nutrition lifestyle. My elimination of wheat has come to an end. As of this morning no more grains/wheat products. Yes I am also reading labels. It is in the majority of our food items. That being... (more)
This is an odd ball and maybe a fluke of not enough testing yet having been done but let me throw it out there. I've been reintroducing dairy. I started with yogurt and it upset me a bit, but reintroduction of dairy involves up regulating of... (more)
Is your yogurt A2? If not sounds like you may have an issue with A1 casein proteins - which is not uncommon. I would see if you can track down some A2 yogurt or use the A2 milk to make your own.
i have been consuming a diet free of sugar, dairy, grain and legumes for eight weeks. six weeks in i was feeling very run down. i posted here and got many helpful suggestions which i incorporated into my eating; specifically less carbs by... (more)
I've never had any issues with dairy products. I've been on a strict Paleo diet (no grains, legumes, dairy) the last 8 days. I added cheese and sour cream to my fajitas last night. This tore up my stomach really bad. I had the same meal... (more)

Why don't nutrition labels accurately reflect Mineral and Vitamin Content?
