I've always been a little confused about this. I hope one of you nutritional science nuts can shed some light on this. I've seen many fructose/sucrose/glucose related questions on Paleohacks, and inevitably someone mentions that sucrose is simply... (more)

Most sucrose we eat is hydrolyzed to glucose and fructose by the enzyme sucrase in the small intestines, although some (likely a small amount) of sucrose will be hydrolyzed in the presence of the acidic medium of our stomach. Personally, I don't... (more)

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?

If you haven't eaten fruit/veggies for years as you said, then you lack a lot of the enzymes to digest them. Your body just doesn't have these because it thinks it doesn't need them. You must start eating them, little by little. 1 cherry today, 2... (more)

If we decide to eat 100g of carbs, we could be eating 50g of sugars (20g of fructose) if we choose bananas or 16g of sugars (4g of fructose) if we choose sweet potato. Maybe the carb-count metric is defunct and needs to be replaced by a count of... (more)

I think you nailed it in your edit: the difference between sugar and non-sugar carbs is somewhat undermined because all carbs eventually turn into sugar (that's a gross simplification, of course). However, the differences lie in how quickly this... (more)

Confused Snack recipe for Sweet Nut Mix calls for 1/3 cup sugar. How can it be Paleo if your using sugar in the recipe?

Yeah - sugar is my weakness and staying away from it is the only way for me - a little taste makes me want to od on it.  Thnx for your comments.

Removing sugar and most starches from your diet reduces cravings resulting in feeling fuller. That's why it is simple to fast while eating a Paleo diet as you can go long times between meals before hunger strikes. So to answer your question; a... (more)
