I seem to be experiencing an odd and quite uncomfortable symptom of not feeling full no matter how much I eat (unless I quite literally eat myself to nausea). I'm certainly getting enough calories, upwards of 3000 due to needing to gain weight.... (more)

Hi guys, No doubt there is massive individuality to this query, and also the slightly annoying situation that it takes your body a while to adapt so changes are hard to monitor. For someone metabolically damaged like myself, my body seems to... (more)

I've heard it stated that lysozyme in eggs causes problems in some people by causing or promoting leaky gut and that these people should avoid eggs. Does this really apply to hard-boiled eggs? Cordain's website references the ability of lysozyme... (more)

Cordain's response is likely better researched than anything you'll find here. That said, my general feeling about Cordain is that he emphasizes potential risks inherent in foods he doesn't think are "paleo," ignoring other potential risks... (more)

I believe that I had Leaky Gut. I also had very poor digestion. I started out at 6 caps of the Now Foods Super Enzymes but am now down to 1-2 with a meal. I also no longer feel bloated and have (pardon the TMI) nice, easily passed stools. I... (more)

Quite a loaded question without a simple answer due to some ongoing chronic health problems, but I thought I would throw it out there as the paleo diet seems to fit as the backbone of any treatment. I'm in quite a tricky position -... (more)

this situation looks very similar to mine. some points from my experience: probiotics: most of the time, people with acute digestive problems don't take nearly enough. aim for AT LEAST 100 billion organisms/day (some professional probiotics even... (more)

So my elimination diet came to an end a week ago. It was time to see what was up. The only intolerance I was testing for was gluten intolerance though I also cut out beans and don't really care if they ever come back. The dismount wasn't as smooth... (more)
