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)
Where other than the USDA food database do you get nutrition info from? I've been using Chronometer a lot lately and they get their data from the same place as nutritiondata.self.com... The USDA food database I think. This is severely... (more)
When you look on self nutrition data which uses usda micro and macro nutrient all animal foods have horrible micro nutrient status(except for liver, brain and kidney). For example, beef tallow has 2 percent for vitamin a and three percent for... (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)
I was wondering what nutrients become depleted during tabata workouts? What do i need to eat to replenish them, carbs, carbs and protein, nothing??? I've been doing HIIT traing for a long time, and just started doing tabata intervals, 20sec on/... (more)
Is it possible to overdose on thiamine supplements, or does it have any other negative effects like folate? I take a 100mg tablet every day, I try to get what i can from food. I also take folate, but in the metafolin form.
It depends on season and latitude, and as SF mentions, activity. It makes no sense to stick to fixed ratios. If you start cutting out all processed foods, you can start experimenting and figure out in a year or so what makes you prosper.
Are there specific benefits to eating muscle meat from land animals (e.g, chicken, beef, pork)? Their fat is a good source of saturated fatty acids and fat-soluble vitamins; their bones and cartilage are full of minerals and other healthy... (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)
I ask because my electricity bill was about $60 above the same month last year and a record high for me. The only difference I can think of is my new stovetop bone-broth-making habit indulged in about once a week for a couple days at a time. I... (more)
I made kidneys and to get rid of that nasty smell and yellow urine color I had to boil them in seven different waters. They taste fine, but it took me a lot of effort to get them that way. Are kidneys worth all that effort? Or can I just... (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.
