Has anyone seen this rebuttal to Poliquin about the need for HCl supplements for digestive functioning? It was originally posted in a yahoo group by an actual (gasp) gastroenterologist and made its way to T-nation. Anyone have any rebuttals to... (more)

hypochlorhydria, low stomach acid, is pretty poorly studied and more research focuses on infections rather than digestion however there are a lot of studies on PPIs, which cause hypochlorhydria purposefully and eventually do lead to B12... (more)

I know there are lots of poop questions on here but none of them really help me out. I've brought this up before when I first started Paleo and had people telling me to up my carbs, up my fats, lower my fats, lower my protein, eat stems, etc.,... (more)

My latest post on my blog was about this. I struggled with loose stool a lot on strict paleo and it subsided when I would eat an apple sauce/banana/pumpkin/broth diet. Finally I got it to go away altogether by just well...not eating paleo. I still... (more)

I've been trying to drink coconut milk as part of a shake for breakfast lately, but it's been causing quite a stir in my stomach.. Anyone else having issues with coconut milk acting as a diuretic?

If you're talking about coconut milk, you may just be having trouble dealing with all the fat. It can act as a laxative, not necessarily as a diuretic. You may need to start slowly, then ramp up the fat over time so your body can deal with it. If... (more)

Gah, can't reply directly to your comment. Daz says gallbladder, that could be an issue. But bear in mind that gas can feel very uncomfortable. Gas can be easily caused by many common paleo foods such as cruciferous veg (think cabbage, broccoli,... (more)

I'm guessing this is some kind of mechanism to stabilize weight? Should I still eat then even if I'm not hungry? Also, my stomach seems to be permanently distended. What's happening?

Don't eat if you aren't hungry, but be sure to stay hydrated and salt food to taste. Make sure you are dialing in your micronutrients: Vitamin D and magnesium may require supplementation. Eat nutrient-dense foods like liver, eggs, red meat, dark... (more)

When I have been sick in the past I usually don't feel like eating. I would say that you should let your stomach be your guide. Don't eat if you feel that you can't handle it and eat only what seems appealing. Broths are good, though, as are as... (more)

From the literature it seems that almost all cases of GERD/acid reflux occur due to too little acid not too much. I think this is because the stomach needs to contain a certain amount of hydrochloric acid before it shuts the LES. Correct me if I'm... (more)

I'm dealing with that at the moment and it's what's brought me here. A whey protein shake will have me literally passed out in 20 minutes. It's almost as bad with a large burger and salad. I can happily eat 100 grams of jelly beans and have no... (more)

I say, "Nope, just fat, but thanks for noticing." I then enjoy the look of horror on their face. Mean, but just desserts for asking such a rude, intruding question.

Hi everyone. I have a quick question. I can't seem to get rid of my stomach. I'm 5'6 130 pounds and my arms and legs have gotten thin but my stomach just won't seem to get any flatter. I do a mix of cardio and weight lifting. How much more weight... (more)

It could be a sensitivity to a particular food. Your best bet is to start keeping track of exactly what you're eating and when, and when you have symptoms. You could also do a "clean" version of the diet and gradually add things back in to see if... (more)

Try finding some charcoal tablets. Take them and you should see them in about 24 hours or so. You can then gauge how long food is actually in your body and your total digestion time. Obviously, this will change depending on what you eat and how... (more)
