Robb Wolf Questions
Hey everyone. So I read Robb Wolf's book on my Kindle over a few days, and I noticed that Loren Cordain's updated 'Paleo Solution' has just been released in the UK. Has anyone read this updated Cordain book? Is it worth a read? I found Robb's... (more)
In Lights Out they recommend no T.V. or no Computer 1 hour before going to bed. What are you supposed to do one hour before bed? I haven't read the book yet so I'm curious if there are specific recommendations?
Basically I just watched I, caveman on discovery a few minutes ago and it was awesome. Looking for someone to talk to about their experience and just get excited over the fact that robb wolf killed an elk with an atlatl. I mean come on, how cool... (more)
It was an awesome show. I heard Robb talk about it at PrimalCon Lake Tahoe this year and he said the experience almost killed him. Very interesting situation to be put in. I can\t imagine what it would have been like.
I've been taking super papaya enzymes plus tablets as of late cause I was told they were the same as digestive enzymes and would help with low stomach acid. I've been using them for a month(3 a day) and have had no problems. The other day I upped... (more)
I was recently investigating chlorella as a possible food source. The science behind it looked promising, initially. Lots of pubmed studies claiming an array of health benefits. NASA was studying this as a food source for astronauts, Russians used... (more)
A few weeks ago, I ran across a blog post by Amy Kubal on RobbWolf.com titled "52 Pick-Up Paleo Style." Her basic premise was this, if we fall into a rut in the kitchen, we often become bored with our meals. And when we get bored with our meals,... (more)
After 160 or so Paleo Solution podcasts I just can't help but call multiple people "folks". So since I've never had a conversation with Robb Wolf, why do I pick up his terminology? Why do we pick up habits from others? How are these habits or... (more)
On episode 142 (July 2012), Robb mentioned they would have Nate Miyaki on as a guest in the future, but I haven't heard him mention it again since. Anyone know what happened? Did they have some sort of a falling out? Or did I somehow miss... (more)
Looks like he still will: https://twitter.com/robbwolf/status/300267919588339712 Not sure when though.
A number of folks just dismissed what I had to say on this, assuming I had no familiarity with the Phinney/Volek work, that I was ???out to lunch??? on the topic. That???s certainly your right if you are in that camp, but you are a boner for... (more)
Hi Guys, Did anyone listen to the interview on Robb Wolfs Paleo Solutions podcast? Chris was on point again and made some interesting points about the amount/type of fat we should be eating. Here's a link for you all:... (more)
I too thought it was a great podcast. Here are the four "red flags" Chris talked about. If you have one or more of these, Chris suggests you should look more closely at your cholesterol (e.g. via an NMR test): total cholesterol (TC) > 290 HDL... (more)
looking for you people out there have used both GF and non-GF whey. Have you found one to be better than the other for 1. performance 2. health? I'm probably going to jump into some research, if there is any, on this topic. I know Robb wolf has... (more)
I while back Rob Wolf answered a question on his podcast about nicotine gum and if I remember correctly he seemed to have nothing but positive things to say about it. Well about 12 days ago i decided to give it a shot. I started chewing 2-3... (more)
Has a Paleo guru ever given you advise that you ended up following and eventually came to the conclusion that in the end it was bad advice?
I never asked a paleo guru for advice. I doubt many have. EDIT: It's been called to my attention that I'm getting a little snarky 'round here. Mea culpa, I'll tone it down! I think that I do not like the notion of "paleo gurus,"--but that's my... (more)
Which book would you guys recommend? I've read Robb Wolf's Paleo Solutions, its brilliant but feel the science would go straight over my dad's head. I found it a tough read in places, and I'm used to the terminology and reading tech stuff. Side... (more)
I'm having a hard time eating protein. I'm monitoring my intake on MyFoodDiary.com and it's helpful. I'm trying to stay under 100g of carbs, but I can't get enough protein in. I'm trying to stick to Robb Wolf's ratios. Any advice? Trying to lose... (more)
I've just finished reading 'the paleo diet for athletes' by prof Loren Cordain, in which he explains saturated fat is the bad artery clogging fat and he also explains how our ancestors ate very little saturated fat in comparison to mono and poly... (more)
Hello fellow paleohackers. I am 29, I practice Jiu Jitsu at least 3 times a week, I am in good shape, not overweight and have been paleo since October, LC probably between 50g and 100g of carbs. Last December I got my blood tested and my TC and... (more)
I'm thinking about doing a Robb Wolf "thirty day challenge" since I've never actually done one before, this is despite eating "paleo" for over a year. I also want to include some Stephan Guyenet concepts as well i.e low reward, limited number of... (more)
I resonate with Robb Wolf's idea that a lot of western disease has an autoimmune component. Despite having no known autoimmune problems, I wonder if PCOS is a disease that may have autoimmune underpinnings. My symptoms have greatly improved (not... (more)
http://www.robbwolf.com/2012/03/09/paleo-diet-inflammation-metformin/ An Inflammation Odyssey 2012 Let???s look at a few things we suspect play a role in insulin resistance/hyperinsulinemia: 1-Carbohydrate load 1A-Fructose 2-Lack of... (more)
Three years ago I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease known as Dermatmyositis. More than 6 months ago I began a Paleo lifestyle thanks to Robb Wolf and company. I am happy to report that my body has healed remarkably; my digestion, weight,... (more)
Dermatomyositis is an autoimmune reaction to proteins in immature myoblasts. In other words, your muscles atrophy because (like most of your body) they're in a constant state of aging, breaking down, and regeneration...and some amount of the... (more)
Seth Roberts has been collecting anecdotes from people taking vitamin D in the early morning and reporting improved sleep. He thinks the body might interpret it like sunlight. Robb Wolf, on the other hand, finds that taking VD3 at night works... (more)
I got the idea from Tara Grant. Her sleep instantly improved when she started taking Vitamin D3 first thing in the morning instead of mid-afternoon or early evening.
After reading this post on Robb Wolf's site I'm a little curious. What Matt Lalonde seems to be describing is a calorie restricted, low carb diet. Yet as he progressed, he reports muscle development along with fat loss. The fat loss part is... (more)
So... I may be confused here, but you could help me out. So I'm a newcomer to paleo, as Robb says I'll try it for 30 days. However a lot of my meals have a basis of salad and 'green stuff'. So when I go luck at Robb Wolf's food matrix to make... (more)
You can eat salad. No harm in that. You might like to read Sisson. He includes a salad. Either way. Eat and Enjoy.
