It is my understanding that sardines are very high in omega 3 and I'll often eat 10 in one sitting which seems like a lot of omega 3 and I do this a least once each week because they taste good. On top of this I'll continue to crave more seafood... (more)

I've been eating Paleo for the past 2 months. Recently I've altered to a low-carb diet (50g) or less. On days that I don't work out, I feel great, am rarely hungry and mental clarity is superb. Whenver I workout, whether it be morning, afternoon... (more)

Eat a giant sweet potato bathed in butter... Seriously though eat some carbs!!! HF/LC can cause high levels of cortisol. Paleo is not low carb.

Why not do egg based eating some days, offal on some days (liver, kidneys, heart, sweetbreads - wide range of nutrients in these) and fish or shellfish on some days. You'd be covering a very wide base of minerals etc with that and your usual veg /... (more)

Try a zinc tally test AKA zinc challenge.  This is a liquid form of zinc that you'd put a few drops of on your tongue and taste.  If you notice no taste at all, i.e. just like water, then you need zinc.  The stronger the taste, the... (more)

it could be the glycine in skin and tendons and cartilage, or other substances present only in cartilage (chondroitin etc.). But it could also be vitamin K2, which is more abundant in chicken than in other meats. Whole chicken is underappreciated... (more)

If you are just taking a normal b complex supplement, I would not be concerned.  Your body excretes excess b vitamins.  I get B12 injections at high doses, that can affect you by disrupting sleep if it is too much.

Its my understanding that burnt meat is carcinogenic and that conventionally raised meat is pumped with hormones antibiotics etc. but if you are eating pastured meats and wild game that isnt overcooked is it any different for these meats?

I had to google "toxic potassium" to figure what you're talking about. Just ignore that pseudo-science BS. The logic is like "possasium is used in lethal injections, we fertilize plants with potassiums, therefore plants have toxic potassium", pure... (more)
