Eat fat and carbs. Fried plantains or sweet potatoes. Poach fruit in cream. Broil cheese over vegetables. Being in ketosis will work against weight gain.

Religious calorie counting bears much resemblance to the ritualistic and obsessive eating patterns of Eating Disorders. But can calorie counting (whether for weight gain or weight loss) be a trigger for people to slip into an eating disorder?

If you have a predisposition based on your personality (like an obsessive compulsive disorder for example), calorie counting could trigger some of the conditions you mentioned. Let's face it some people are over-achievers and might try going lower... (more)

Working out fasted is indeed your best bet.  You could also look at doing some CT as well.  Ideal would be to work out fasted while wearing an ice vest as this forces you to burn a lot of fuel quicker.   You could also skip the... (more)

One would have to eat a whole container of 10 oz spinach, have to eat nuts and vegetable oils, and eat massive amount of other types of foods to get the daily mg of Vitamin E? Is it just me that's having a tough time with this?

One of the best sources of full spectrum vitamin E (tocopherols and tocotrienols) is red palm oil.  This is also a fat with a good profile.  However, it has a very strong flavor, but it's perfect for making into a chille or a... (more)

WRT your comment.  Some people can control their intake without counting calories due to the high satiety of paleo foods.  However, portion control or calorie counting remains a good tool for people who are not getting the... (more)

With thanksgiving coming around I picked up some delicious french whipped cream from Costco. On the label 15g is 45 cals with 2g of sugar the rest being fat.  Been stuffing my face with it.  Seems paleo enough for me!

Get the sugar-free one from Land O' Lakes, it has zero carbs and tastes exactly like the real deal. Technically no dairy based whipped cream is "Paleo". But it sure is low-carb/keto and pretty bening since it's basically emulsified milkfat... (more)

Am i experiencing early menopaus due to my thyroid... and how come my levels go up the more my doctor increases Mu thyroxine dosage?

2cbd904ebf34e1df5ccd2ded41ce7c16
schultz 0 · September 30, 2014 at 12:30 PM

You're taking thyroxine, which is T4. The body converts T4 to T3, the active thyroid hormone. This conversion can be compromised by a number of things. I would ask the doctor if you can be put on something like desiccated thyroid or a T4/T3 combo. (more)

Definitely more than that.  Let's total up what you're eating: That's maybe 1000 calories, you need more like 2000 calories.  Your activity is above average. Your BMI is already on the lower side of normal. Why are you trying to eat... (more)

Totally agree with the other posters. You need to focus on weight loss/gain over a longer period of time. Take the same approach that you would with the stock market- day to day you'll find yourself both up and down, but the key is not making... (more)
