And if so is not getting adequate seafood causing harm? And if so what harm is it causing? I was just reading up on the aquatic ape theory and they seem to think that humans evolving in an aquatic environment would account for a lot of our... (more)
I often eat shrimp with the shells and tails on. A friend who owns a fish market turned me on to it... Lots of great flavor there and its a common practice in several cultures. Anybody have any idea what nutritional benefit they add vs shelled? ... (more)
I know the shells/tails contain astaxanthin, a powerful antioxident. it is what gives them the pink color and is part of why some of us pay a little more for krill oil instead of fish oil.
I can only eat canned tuna, and canned clams/bottled clam juice, as far as seafood goes. It's the only allergy I've had my whole life. I've never tried canned salmon. I basically vomit after any fish or seafood, always, and I have had... (more)
Hey all, I'm an avid free diver and like to bring home some abs and rockfish when i can, but the only tried and true way of cooking abs I know is either breaded and cooked in grape seed oil or put in a ceviche. Does anyone know how I can cook up... (more)
I had ceviche made with imitation crab and fish, and I notice that maybe an hour later my current acne started to itch. Can crab or fish cause acne or make it worst? Also, I don’t know if its coincidence, but my face started to clear up, only had... (more)
I'm starting a new relationship and just found out he has a shellfish allergy! I am a shrimp and crab lover! Can I eat she'll fish at all? Does anyone know how long it could stay in my system? Help!!!!
We know grass-fed beef is better than grain-fed, wild fish is better than farmed fish, ... But I personally know nothing at all about shellfish? How do you know if oysters are high-quality or not? The only ones I can get online are the ones on... (more)
I don't eat any kind of shellfish. shrimps, oysters, clams, crabs, scallops, lobsters... I used to, but stopped all together about two years ago. I cut it out initially as a part of my elimination diet and I just never added it back. I'm... (more)
So I've been doing my version of paleo for a couple of months now, and have been adding stuff to my diet that I never ate before either because I didn't like it or thought it was unhealthy. I now really like steak, eggs, good bacon, etc. I'd... (more)
I grew up with an intense aversion to shellfish, but was won over by shrimp and crab in my early twenties. I love love love shrimp battered with egg yolk, dipped in coconut flour and spices, then crisped in ghee. I eat shellfish I find unpleasant... (more)
I have taken elimination diet to the extreme, out of necessity. My current plan is white rice and scallops and water, and literally nothing else. The aquatic ape theory and my self-experiments suggest that this is indefinitely sustainable. I'm... (more)
Hi, just wondering what the protocol on Slug-eating is? There are many huge ones crawling around my property and I might avail myself of them(raw or cooked) if they are edible. I realize there are many types of slugs so maybe a description can... (more)
I eat them frequently in my homegrown produce. Never on purpose!!! They are usually fully cooked. I don't like the way they smell, but they haven't killed me yet.
I've been doing hardcore elimination diets for a year or two, experimenting. I was never able to stick to ketosis because of the carb cravings. It took tremendous willpower and I could only do a couple of months without cheating. Recently I... (more)
I do think micronutrients matter, particularly in ketosis. The iodine in the scallops can help support the thyroid, which is important since there is some evidence that low-carb can lead to low-thyroid issues (which may actually be more about... (more)
Hi Everyone - I'm allergic to shellfish, but the worst one is shrimp. Perhaps asking a naive question, is there anything I can do to eat them? I would love to be able to eat Shrimp and Lobster, not only for the taste, but the protein and variety.... (more)
lately i've been noticing a contingent of paleo that recommends eating at least half of daily protein as seafood, either fish or shellfish. also sisson recently did those articles on wild & farmed seafood. i haven't eaten seafood in a long... (more)
Having eaten several raw oysters, I find myself sitting on several large shells. Can I make stock from them? Dry and grind them down to a mineral powder? Anyone ever do anything with oyster shells besides tossing them?
I was just awarded $50 gift card from our local food store for commenting on several things they could do better. At this time, I cant eat red meat because of what it does to me....Keeping that in mind....(no i am not ready to try grassfed beef... (more)
I was having a good discussion with a close friend of mine who is on an elimination-reintroduction trial and having excellent results. As such, he was open to some of my paleo arguments. The catch is, he's been a vegan or near-vegan for a while... (more)
The first meat I ate again post-vegetarian was bivalves. I think that's probably pretty common... for me it was the beginning of the end, eating bivalves gave me the push I needed to reconsider my dietary habits, maybe that's how it is for him,... (more)
Scientific American had a cool story in the August issue about the near extinction of the human race during an iceage explaining the very similar genetic makeup of the majority of the human genome. One key part of the survival was hunter gathers... (more)
