How does one convert mmol/l to teaspoons per liter? Specifically I'm trying to understand how much NaHCO3 (bicarbonate of soda or baking soda) I need to add to water to equal 6.2 mmol/l sodium and 33.03 mmol/l HCO3. How is this paleo related?... (more)

You don't want "teaspoons", your answer is a weight (or volume of a solution). Hypothetically... Get formula weight of HCO3- = 61.02 grams/mol Figure out how many moles you need; M (molarity) = n (moles)/ L (volume) 0.03303 = n / 1L n =... (more)

I would assume a big reason for this is work vs return. Carnivores tend to be reclusive, travel large distances in smaller packs, and weigh much less. It is much easier to track and selectively kill animals from a herd of buffalo for instance... (more)

If you are not overweight, and you are not gaining weight, then you definitely are not leptin resistant. It's good to have one big meal a day. If you are worried about overeating then focus on eating high protein in the second meal, and just eat... (more)

Non-grass-fed beef isn't high in omega-6, it's simply low in omega-3, not that grass-fed beef is high on omega-3 to begin with. Grass-feeding has relatively little effect on beef composition, when you considered than beef, grassfed or not, is... (more)

Does anyone find themselves getting bit by mosquitos less, and tanning rather than burning on Paleo? I'm thinking maybe we're not so sweet to the bugs, and William Duffy in Sugar Blues claims less sunburn.
