Is it possible that taking enzymes will cause unwanted weight gain? After all, they will likely help you digest your food better. Thus you will be able to get more calories out of your food, instead of passing them out undigested or partially... (more)

I believe there was a study on almonds or some other nut that found they actually have a lot fewer calories than listed on the package because typically a person can only digest 75 or 80 percent of it (or something like that, don't have the exact... (more)

i dont respond negatively to milk at all, except i get quite a bit of gas afterwards. it doesnt hurt at all, but does lactose intolerance cause other issues, or is it benign?

You can make non-dairy buttermilk by mixing 1cup non-dairy milk, like almond milk, with 1 tsp lemon juice or apple cider vinegar. Stir, set aside for a few minutes.

A strange thing happened to me yesterday/this morning which makes me believe I may actually be lactose/dairy intolerant. A couple of weeks ago I started eating 95% paleo with the odd miso soup or safe starch (white rice/rice noodles) post workout.... (more)

Ice cream is loaded with lactose naturally, and many brands add even more lactose. The heavy cream you've been adding to coffee and cocoa doesn't have any lactose. I say yes, it's possible that you're lactose intolerant. Try another milky... (more)

Since a good part of the paleo rationale is based on the idea that we are not genetically adapted to eat a certain way, it seems very relevant and quite interesting to look at this example of how quickly such a genetic mutation/adaptation can... (more)

I have quite a modest budget, so I don't think what I eat will provide enough micronutrients for me. I heard a few people take Vitamin D3, K2 and magnesium, and I am almost 100% sure that I am D3 deficient, but I also heard that you need K2 or... (more)

If you want to spend the least, spend that money on K2, it is expensive, particularly the SuperK Lifeextension one, but it is important. D3 you can get from the sun, and it is a pretty cheap supplement, costing a 10-12$ for a whole year of D3,... (more)

It is actually extremely common for a celiac individual to experience more food intolerances and more digestive issues after going gluten-free, at least for the first several months (or up to a year). Celiac boards are full of anecdotes about... (more)

I love coffee, and for the most part, it doesn't give me any issues. However, sometimes, if I'm using half and half or drinking a latte, I'll develop extreme stomach pain and/or diarrhea. I've never had this problem using heavy cream in my coffee... (more)

Coffee proved to be a strong trigger for increased intestinal permeability (leaky gut) for me. If you mix it with milk components that can cross the weakened intestinal wall (lactose, casein) problems arise. Do some self experimentation to see if... (more)

Does lactose consumption (of those with the enzyme lactase) have a similar effect to our bodies insulin production as added sugars in SAD foods?

Shari_Bambino 0 · February 08, 2012 at 1:00 AM

Well it gives an insulin response but not from the lactose alone. A good read from Mark. ( p.s. testing blood glucose is not the same as testing insulin reaction. A food can produce an insulin response without a corresponding rise in bs.) (more)

I have never tried it, and I don't get why people keep trying to drink milk when it bothers them. Then again, I guess some butter is worth it. Are you sure it is just the lactose in the milk that is bothering you?

I know the hierarchy of dairy. The question becomes if you have sensitivity to the lower levels of this hierarchy, but not at the higher ones should you still consider avoiding it completely? For instance I had a fajita omelet today at a Diner... (more)
