Can anyone explain why I can eat a tub of ice cream or lots of chocolate everyday with no apparent issues but if I add 'safe' starches instead I start gaining body fat within days? In both cases we're talking about adding in 100g carbs to a... (more)
Hello everyone! I'm new here and thought I'd jump right in and see if any other ladies have experienced this. About a year ago I "got serious" on my quest for health with an ill-advised 1400-1600/cal day, low fat, chronic cardio sort of... (more)
I am a 21 yr old female around130lbs, 5'8" and have been eating paleo (no grains, sugars, very limited fruit or high glycemic veggies, no soy, gluten, dairy, etc.) for several years. I have been eating 1300 calories/day for 3-4 years and the... (more)
So I have googled and searched to death trying to find some answers to my interesting and frustrating issue to no avail. Has anyone found that they had Insatiable- and i mean rabid- fat cravings when eating very low carb specifically no added... (more)
I've heard that starches can cause or contribute to leaky gut. I have celiac and I'm doing strict paleo to help with healing. Should I avoid sweet potatoes and squashes and such?
I have these really bad rashes on my arms, could eggs be a contributor? Would it make sense if eggs were contributing to increased intestinal permeability and resulting in an autoimmune response in my skin?

Those pseudocereals do not contain gluten, and contain some nutrients as well. What role do you think they should play on a paleo diet? Do you consume them? (Why?).
I hope someone may have the same issue or dilemma as myself who can answer my question. I am trying to get my Hemoglobin A1C down. I got it from 5.9 to 5.5 in 2 yrs. by going fairly low carb. Now I get a test which shows a high TSH and I have been... (more)
Is there an optimal time of day to consume carbs? Do you run into problems with blood sugar when consuming carbs with meals that are higher in fat than other meals? More carbs from fruit, "safe starches", or a little of both?
We've all heard about "safe starches" like sweet potatoes, yams and taro. But what about Cassava(yuca), plantains(starchy bananas), Malanga, Name (white yam),Boniatos (cuban sweet potatoes) Gold skin potatoes, red skin potatoes and russet potatoes? (more)
I thought I'd play around with Fit-A-Day. Turns out the hubby and I were eating way more carbs then we'd expected. While eating peas and green beans (but NO safe starches), and other foods we were eating 20% carbohydrate! That means when we were... (more)
Personally I think this is kind of ridiculous. There is so much effort in the paleohacks community to massage the paleo brand and image--to protect us and the lay community from the quacks and the Kruse. Has it crossed anybody's mind that we... (more)
