Low Carb Questions
A new study just published in the AMA Journal compared three diets: a low-fat diet, a low-glycemic/Mediterranean diet, and a low-carb/Atkins-like diet. Although participants burned the most energy on the low-carb diet, researchers found that it... (more)
So I eat a low carb paleo ketogenic diet (Bulletproof Diet without tons of coffee though) for roughly a year now. I feel great on the diet but always seem to have looser stools. I dont really have much bloating, acne, or gas, and I dont have very... (more)
I've been eating Paleo for the past 2 months. Recently I've altered to a low-carb diet (50g) or less. On days that I don't work out, I feel great, am rarely hungry and mental clarity is superb. Whenver I workout, whether it be morning, afternoon... (more)
I LOVE onions! I could eat them until they come out of my ears! I know they are super healthy for you and have quite a bit of anti-oxidants in them. I eat probably 1 small to medium onion a day. While I'm on paleo, I'm trying to lose weight and... (more)
I recently went low-carb, but find that I'm missing a lot of the old foods I used to eat.. but I like the way LC makes me feel and that is enough to keep me motivated. Would it be more benificial to stay LC all the time and deal with the cravings... (more)
Has anyone here lost more than 50lbs while averaging 200+gm of carbohydrate a day? For all I am glad that Paleo has embraced starch for those who need it I'm wondering if that hasn't skewed people's results.
CONFUSED NEWBIE!!! I'm getting so many different answers. As far as I know.. I'm 20 years old female, weighing 165, height 5'6"-7" and my ideal weight is 130 pounds. I'm trying to do HIGH fat, MOD protein, LOW carb. I was told to eat 1 gram of... (more)
I've been Paleo for quite some months now. When I was over in Haiti, I didn't eat Paleo for a week. I got back, had the runs, and now I'm back eating Paleo. It's been about a month since I was in Haiti, and I've had brain fog for the last 2... (more)
I just finished a 30 day challenge on Paleo and made it through unscathed. I feel good, skin looks good, and I dropped a few pounds. Even though my husband and I told ourselves we could "cheat" when we finished the 30 days, I really don't want... (more)
Anyone know of several good sources of vitamin B6, preferably low-carb? I know bananas are good, but they're not really my thing. I'm trying to get over a cold and apparently vitamin B6 helps with that....wondering where I can get some without... (more)
143% daily value for b6 in 8oz of salmon. 142% daily value for b6 in 6oz of liver. Decent amounts in meat, throw in a few lbs of plants and you should be good.
I am on my first few weeks of paleo and have only limited reading experience as well as minimal practical application, so if this is a some what beaten to death subject I apologise.I was recently inspired to start a paleo diet, not because i agree... (more)
I'm 15, in good health, and at about 15% body fat. Yesterday was my first low carb day. I skipped breakfast and worked out really hard for about 2 hours, which most likely depleted all of my glycogen stores. That day, all I ate was about 35... (more)
I developed GERD at the ripe old age of 18. I began experiencing chronic sore throats, which my MD at the time suggested was acid reflux, because I was in continual pain and had no signs of respiratory infection. I thought she was wrong, simply... (more)
I've been paleo for nearly 6 months, and have lost 20 pounds so far, but am starting to stall. I'd like to lose 20-30 more via a low-carb, high-fat ketotic paleo diet.I've been in ketosis for about a week now, and I feel good. I'm not abnormally... (more)
Get more physical activity rather than cutting more calories. I don't see any reason (save medical emergencies) that an adult should go below 1,200 calories per day.
i always trying to find best ratio for myself and still can't figure it out.i tried very low carb (>6 grams from veggies) and low protein;low carb (>15) with moderate protein;mod.carb with high protein(1 g per lean body mass).i found that... (more)
Hi, I suffer from "carb face" and generally have to be on a very low carb diet in order to reduce the water retention predominantly in my face. I've noticed that 2 things help. The first is 24-hour water-only fasting. The second is high... (more)
Hi, I have recently started the Paleo diet (its been about a week) and I am starting the 30-day Insanity Asylum program soon. I have heard all these things about the necessity of carbs for high intensity workouts but it seems that if you use... (more)
I'm doing a low carb, high fat version of Paleo, and I'm searching for a good bagel or english muffin like recipe that I can make in the morning and spread coconut oil on. So far, I use this one: 2Tb coconut flour, 3Tb ground flaxseed... (more)
This is my favorite muffin recipe. I use stevia because I have a sweet tooth. When it's straight out of the oven, it's very fresh, delicious and moist-but-not-doughy. http://cowenparkkitchen.com/masa-harina-cornbread/
So I went to the organic store and saw this little box contaning about 100 tiny licorice pellets. It's sugar-free, gluten-free and made with only one ingredient : 100% licorice extract. So it's not exactly a candy : they taste really strong and... (more)
So I was thinking. This morning my low carb breakfast was probably one of the best things I have ever experienced. 60 grams of blueberries with 30ml of double cream. Fresh organic coffee with 30ml double cream. 100 grams of store... (more)
I am working my way toward going VLC (35-40g), or at least cycling in days of being VLC with moderate-to-low carb days. For those of you that track macros/cals, do you count the carbs that come from fiber into your total daily carb intake? Or do... (more)
I have been eating paleo diet for about sixth months and it has worked wonders for me! However i recently read an article about watching how many carbs you eat, and that the ultimate way to lean out and build muscle is to cut carbs, to maybe one... (more)
FWIW, I think you may be eating too few calories. Perhaps you need to replace the carbs with fat.
is it normal for my blood glucose to rise to 150 after a meal only of protein, fat and veggies? I???m not eating VLC, I eat veggies, one/two servings of fruit and one sweet potato. Should I be concerned? Why does this happen? I though this... (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!
