I have spoken with some people (not just Paleo/Primals), but Low-Carbers who have tried to reintroduce certain foods and get into trouble. Perhaps their gut has not healed fully, or gut flora need more time. Perhaps there are still some underlying... (more)
So I was checking out the paleo food list and I noticed that it recommends all the fruits, but condemns starchy tubers. Now I know sweet potatoes have a lower fructose count per 100 grams than ANY fruit, so what's the deal? Fructose is the most... (more)
Paul Jaminet made it perfectly clear that the word "safe" referred to the lack of glutens that could cause problems for some people.
What: The Paleo Summit (see also this post) Who: Matt Stone ??? Independent Health Researcher Topic: Matt Stone Debunks The Paleo Diet. Is the Paleo diet a short-term fix? Are there any long-term side effects stemming from this way of eating?... (more)
After I eat food I burp excessively and after every burp i feel a little relieved. It feels like food moves down a bit after every burp. I also experience mental fog after eating. Other symptoms: constipation, low stomach acid, fungal... (more)
Do you spread them out and eat them in small quantities or do you take in a lot in one sitting ? Do you feel any different when adding fat or not? Do you measure your blood sugar after? Have you noticed any improvement in your blood sugar from... (more)
Don't know how much this idea is existent... When I Google searches related to this I don't seem to come across the exact information I am after. Here goes: Are refined sugars / high starch / carbohydrate foods bad not simply because they... (more)
How would these starch eaters have coped back then?
While we can't know exactly what our ancestors ate, we can know a few things. They were not primarily frugivores. We know this because our closest primate relative, the chimpanzee, is primarily frugivorous (although it does eat bugs and some... (more)
I'm three weeks in to a 30-day Paleo challenge, and I'm finding that I have to eat LOADS of food to feel satisfied. And then a couple of hours later, I'm hungry again. I'm mainly eating meat and vegetables, with a bit of fish, a fair amount of... (more)
I don't know your goals but VLC doesn't work for me - I must to have carbs to maintain or I literally can't keep the weight on and my muscle growth stalls. I also do not subscribe to "fat will solve everything" way of thinking, it doesn't work for... (more)
I've been paleo for about four months with good results. I'm coming from a place of having restricted calories and doing a lot of bike riding. Never been athletic, genetically weak up top. I'm really sick of it. I'm interested in ancestral... (more)
What about some hiking? Increase the basic functional movement. Eat enough carbs to keep you nicely fueled, and do bodyweight exercises as needed. You will get stronger, no question, if you lift.
Hi! I'm just wondering if what I just said in my title is true or not. I'm naturally slim/skinny with a 10-15% BMI ( normal range 5-85%) and due to past events and probably genetics I'm a bit high strung and prone to anxiety , and especially... (more)
I've been looking but I can't find anything via The Oracle (Google). Does D-3 play any role in energy metabolism? Would D-3 status have any effect on liver or on the body's ability to cope with carbohydrate? The higher the carb-intake of... (more)
As I continue to experiment with my body and diet I have decided to incorporate some PHD into my personal version of Paleo. I've decided to cut back on adding fats, maybe putting a little on veggies, but getting the rest from the meat, avocado,... (more)
I'm nervous about this, but I'm fairly certain VLC made my hair fall out. It just goes against everything I know about low carbing to add in starches. I'd like to hear from anyone who made the leap successfully. I have about 30-40 pounds to lose... (more)
I am sorry to hear about your hairloss, Burny, which is a very tough thing for women in particular. Are you aware that hairloss is a common symptom of PCOS? Some 70% of women with PCOS suffer from hair issues - both hairloss and hirsutism. In... (more)
Does meat from grassfed or wild animal contain sugars or starch. Or are some organs more sugary than other parts of the animal?
Liver, shellfish and some fish all taste quite sweet to me. Since I dropped all starch (still lots of veg) 90% dark chocolate even tastes sweet. Even black coffee (dark roast) has some sugar/caramel notes I never noticed.
PHD recommends 200 - 600 calories of glucose (ie starches) a day. What's the lowest glycemic way to get these calories? I see mixed results on carrots. Zucchini looks safe. Unclear on Jicama. What else?
Can some suggested foods sabotage blood sugars causing you to spike blood sugar and get obese with subsequent disease. The food in question being brown and white rice,potatoes especially the white varieties, and concentrated calories in Cheeses... (more)
Is it really the color of the food that counts? Does something that is "white" automatically mean high-starch? I personally don't believe so... some brown whole grains are higher on the GI than their paler counterparts, and some white potatoes... (more)
Stats: 6'1 - 185pounds - 7-8% BF - Strength train 3 times a week + sprints once a week - I've been following a 100% strict Paleo diet + autoimmune protocol as per Robb Wolf(no nuts, dairy, nightshades). I've had good results but have noticed that... (more)
I'm interested in moderate Carb paleo with only tubers 1-2x/week PWO. Will I (23 yr old male,10 % BF) need starch on my off days to avoid ketosis by a bit?
Dr. Eades has responded to Darrin Carlson's "Five Failings of Paleo" article, which I know has been linked and discussed here as well. http://www.proteinpower.com/drmike/low-carb-diets/are-we-meat-eaters-or-vegetarians-part-iii/ His argument... (more)
These questions are not being posed to offend anyones nutritional needs or macronutrient requirements. All plants have a season/time of year when they can be eaten, this season is even shorter outside the range of the equator- so how would... (more)
Neanderthals were not mostly carnivorous. In fact, some of our best evidence for Paleolithic starch consumption comes from neanderthal remains. Either way, there is a ceiling for protein consumption and because of that, Paleolithic hominids had... (more)
Is there any significant difference between how starch and free glucose are absorbed or utilized by the body? On this post, a guy named "aaa" left this comment: Starch does not equal free glucose. Small intestine in perfect condition will... (more)
