Hello, I am aware of people using myfitnesspal, apps, and websites to track their rough intake as a whole. My problem is how do you know what grams of protein,fat and carbs look like on a plate? So lets say I need 95 total grams of... (more)
I just want to make it clear that this is not really an important question, and I am not agonising over it! I'm just curious. In terms of meat (I also eat eggs and oily fish such as sprats and sardines), I eat lamb, goat and beef. I vary... (more)
No, chicken doesn't really offer anything unique, unlike fish (omega-3s), beef (iron and zinc), and pork (thiamine).
Let's just say I am the epitome of lazy AND am always stretched for time as I work 32 hours a week and go to school full time. Also, I'm avoiding most forms of meat for reasons that I don't currently want to discuss. I have chosen to keep... (more)
I'm curious if I am missing out any important fat sources. Most of my fats come from: -Coconut butter/oil -Nut butter -Avocados -Fish oil -Grass-fed beef, but this is usually lean and about 1-2 times per week I... (more)
I run for about 20 mins a day or will do some relaxing yoga, but in college I don't eat much, about 1,500 and now that I'm on break I checked and I really am having a tough time eating the full 2000 I'm apperantly supposed to get being 5'7,... (more)
Very simple...I have some Crown Prince BPA Free Sardines in Spring Water. Seeing as though the sardines have been sitting in the water for some time now, are there nutrients that have been "lost" to the water? I would prefer to make the sardines... (more)
It's an easy way to get enough calories for weight gain. Is it bad to have a bunch of my calories coming from it even when I eat super nutritious foods like kale and maca powder and coconut water and liver
Hi Doctor Dave, We have just starting making whole milk kefir and really enjoying it, my wife, Judy, especially, because, she came from the south and loves buttermilk. I have also just started the paleo diet, your version, and have lost 8 pounds... (more)
For the next few weeks i am planning on cooking my lunch in the morning (along with breakfast), then taking it out and eating it cold later. Normally steamed veggies, fried meat and baked sweet potatoes/ tubers. Do you reckon the food will lose... (more)
Is it a good idea to drink the water that remains after boiling vegetables? The reason i ask is because i know boiling makes the vegs lose their nutrients but it is the quickest and easiest way for me to cook my vegetables. where do the lost... (more)
I guess those two seem like separate questions, but my mother has been nagging me to not eat too many nutrient dense foods in the same meal because she believes that the body can't properly absorb it all at once and so it becomes a waste! Also,... (more)
Hey all just a quick question. I've been supplementing with 5,000iu's of liquid vitamin d-3 for the past couple weeks. I've been putting it in my coffee mixed with organic pasture raised (not raw) heavy whipping cream or grass-fed butter + mct... (more)
Hey guys, what are your thoughts on preparing food at the beginning of the week & nutrient degradation? I have a very large family, luckily me & my other half are very keen cooks & we cook from scratch 90% of the time. I have thought... (more)
This is so that I can defend myself when people question my diet. Firstly, what nutrients are they likely to be asking about, and secondly, where am I getting them now? The ones that I've been asked about are calcium and B, but the questioner... (more)
Hi there, I noticed something new about my body and food today When I eat white rice as my days worth of safe starch I can't seem to satisfy my appetite. However, when I eat sweet potato, I am satiated with a much smaller amount of... (more)
Hello, I am a 18 year old female who has been following the paleolithic life style for about 8 months now, and I love it! I just have a few questions and concerns that I was wondering if anyone could give me advice! First, I am a very small... (more)
Is it possible for a person to eat paleo but use eggs only (and possibly insects---we'll see) as a protein source? I'm not one to be duped by grains and legumes and so jumping on the vegan/vegetarian bandwagon isn't for me. To boot, me and... (more)
Fellow PaleoHacks, Does the way you cook/prepare your eggs affect/alter the amount of nutrients you would ultimately end up consuming when you eat them? For instance, is the nutrient density in hard boiled eggs higher/lower in comparison to the... (more)
I have been taking a whole foods multivitamin from thesynergycompany called Multi Vita Herb My problem is when after I take the pill my pee is brighter when I pee. Why is that!? Am I absorbing all the nutrients? What's wrong and what can I do to... (more)
Is the color of an egg yolk a reliable indicator of nutruient content, or more related to the another factor (ie type of chicken or feed)? The farm raised eggs I get locally have almost orange yolks, whereas most store bought egg yolks are more... (more)
I often eat shrimp with the shells and tails on. A friend who owns a fish market turned me on to it... Lots of great flavor there and its a common practice in several cultures. Anybody have any idea what nutritional benefit they add vs shelled? ... (more)
Good source of glucosamine/chondroitin. Good for joints. Shells and tails are often used in stock, like bones of other animals. I imagine a good source of calcium and other unspoken minerals, but don't quote me on that.
Hi guys, i thought i would be fun to try to compile a list of the most nutrient dense foods. The goal was to make the shortest list of ingredients but with all nutrients covered in reasonable amounts. So you could go and buy these eight... (more)
Have you seen Mat Lalonde's AHS12 talk? It may not be available yet but he pretty much already did what you're trying to do.
Hey Just wondering if this is too much, I've been eating Chicken Legs for lunch lately, with skin bone and fat, I Munch on the ends of the bone and consume part of what looks like the spine as well. Normally there is none left but the cartilage... (more)
Am I correct in thinking that the main reason behind "eat a variety of fruits and vegetables" is to ensure a full nutrient portfolio? I've put my meals into FitDay and over the week I get pretty much double of triple of the RDA of everything... (more)
The study of nutrition and which vitamins, minerals and phyto-chemicals are essential or important is still quite young. A major reason to eat a wide variety is to obtain the important nutrients we don't yet know.
