Bumping this. Hope it is permitted to do so.
I've been doing a TON of thinking about stress and how it destroyifies our bodies. I'm pretty stressed out at the time being (although there might be something to this meditation thing...it helps a lot, I don't care how hippie that makes me) and I... (more)
I am thinking about including meats (other than fish) back into my diet. I have been meat free for over a year now, and even though I learned a lot during that time, and it opened me up to a lot of foods I had never even HEARD of, I am thinking... (more)
Just wondering what type and amount people recommend for iodine supplementation. I have tried to be fastidious with seaweed but I am not happy with my consistency and I'm not sure what kind of dose I am getting. I know you should start at a low... (more)
I don't know where the paleohacks community stands on telomeres as a marker of longetivity. However, I have come across two "telomerase activators" and was wondering what you all think. One of them is called TA-65, which apparently activates a... (more)
I love the idea of telomerase inhibitors but none of these are optimal. I like high dose Vitamin D and L-carnosine to lengthen my own telomeres the old fashion way. Sun and meat are my telomeres favorite supplements
Could you give me your ranks of your favourite paleo authors? Which rank would you give to them in terms of depth, scientific contributions, clarity of analysis? I mean not only the best known such as Sisson, Cordain, Wolf but also others not so... (more)
Does anyone have any data regarding antioxidants in cognac. Also, are they influenced in any way by age of a product (older cognacs are usually much more expensive but do they have more antioxidants?).
This is probably not the smartest topic for my first question but... I recently came across this video from a 5 part special where a CBS San Francisco reporter tracked her amazing results by going Paleo over the course of several weeks. Its a... (more)
Not sure I would call Lustig one of the "biggest figureheads in the Paleo movement." Yes, he was at AHS11 and yes, lots of us are intrigued by his research. My guess is his appearance on the CBS series was largely because he was local. That said,... (more)
Anyone else out there buy Seasnax nori seaweed sheets? They use olive oil instead of the usual sesame or canola. I am wondering about the safety of nori after the Japanese disaster. This product is not organic but is non GMO. They're from... (more)
I've read some people eat one or two large meals a day. I've started eating one meal a day as I become more satiated. My question is, what is your meal? During my "fasting" period from day to day I will eat coconut oil (2-3 tbsp.), occasionally... (more)
Right now I eat two meals a day and sometimes one snack. I always have a cup of coffee in the morning and mix full-fat coconut milk or pastured cream into it along with a drop or two of real vanilla, lots of cinnamon, and a little unsweetened... (more)
Is this normal?! Actually under good light looks kinda black/blue. I cooked liver in butter with garlic and onion powder and had pretty much ate all that. Threw scrambled eggs with the yolks mostly raw on the plate and then a hunk of... (more)
Eggs have iron and your sauerkraut probably has some hydrogen sulfide (that's probably not a good thing, it's toxic). It's simple chemistry from there Fe + S => black iron sulfides.
A guy I am crushing on was complaining today that on rainy days, he feels like absolute crap - extremely exhausted and drained. I speculated that it might be related to the barometric pressure which gives lots of people headaches. Anyway, he is... (more)
How is your day usually broken up? Sleep: 7-8 hrs Sitting (on the computer/studying): 6-7 hrs (I know this is horrible but I'm a college student--can't help it.) Walking/moving around/standing: 4-5 hrs Other activities... (more)
What range is best in regards to all cause mortality of course for total cholesterol, HDL, LDL, triglycerides etc.
'Dad, you can't compete with a cow... you don't have 4 stomachs.' Should we adopt a more regular frequency of 3-4 meals a day opposite to grazing, or that doesn't matter? Is the stomach under stress if someone is grazing? Are there any drawbacks... (more)
I don't know if it's the glowing skin, man's ability to detect fertility and healthy genes, or just a je ne sais quoi, but has anyone else found that as they down more liver and pastured butter, more heads turn? I myself have not experienced... (more)
I was reading a food label. It said: Total Fat - 31g Sat Fat - 12g PUFA - 0g MUFA - 0g Trans - 0g What makes up the other 19g? In researching this question, I found this at Mayo Clinic... (more)
It occurs to me that I am totally ignorant about binge-eating and how it actually manifests in the real world for someone so afflicted. I tend to go in the other direction and have too strict a hold on the reins, which leads me to things like my... (more)
