So I've got a bit of an issue here.... I've been following a paleo diet for the past 4 months and prior to that I would consider myself a fairly "clean" eater to begin with. I recently decided to add dairy (occasionally adding milk and geek... (more)

Skip the dairy and certainly the grains. Have some sweet potatoes, some regular potatoes, other starchy carbs, some nuts and nut butters (within reason, and macadamias for best EFA proportions), more fruit. Plop some ghee on all the starch. Get... (more)

What are your thoughts on Macadamia Meal? Is there anything wrong with it? It seems pretty nutritionally sound and won't upset the Omega-3 to Omega-6 ratio in a balanced diet. I'm yet to try it. Thinking of having it for breakfast, with fruit... (more)

I really doubt that it has significant problems to it. Someone will probably come in and say something about some antinutrient or whatever, but, yeah, I really doubt it. You should make sure to have some protein at breakfast, though. Whey... (more)

If they really, truly want to know, take their email addresses and send them a few links when you're at home and relaxed. It's fun to share our enthusiasm with willing friends and family, but if they're not asking, let your health speak for itself. (more)

I don't think the goal of paleo should be a 1:1 omega-3/6 ratio. I think if you're sub-10:1 (6:3), you're doing ok, particularly if those omega-6s aren't refined (read: damaged) oils. Omega-6 from pork, chicken and avocado aren't as unhealthful as... (more)

Or you could just buy it online. It's a little expensive though. If you go to http://stevesoriginal.com/ there's a huge selection of Paleo food, and they're all delicious too.

How can one differentiate between elevated lipids caused from clearance of free fatty acids (especially in the case of fatty liver) on a low-carb Paleo diet or caused from the creation of them via diet and/or other stressors?

Personally, I do not agree with the 80/20. It keeps your body in a "middle" situation. By eating soy soup, yogurt, too many potatoes, fried meat, you're not allowing your body the switch to a fat burner metabolism, and you keep it on the edge of a... (more)

Maybe two days on the diet is a little too early to convince the oldies that it works. Just quietly get on with being Paleo and in time they will notice the changes in you and start thinking for themselves. Meanwhile, just keep shhhh.
