I've been good about strictly taking in 0 calories during my intermittent fasting, but recently, I've decided to embark upon 1 full-day fast every week. Unfortunately, I've also been turned on to the idea of "superfoods"--namely, cacao, bee... (more)

I really appreciate all your guys' answers. Some thoughts: Dave Asprey (@bulletproofexec) had a shaman on his podcast last week that said coffee taken in a detoxed state commonly achieved through intermittent fasting can open neural pathways... (more)

I recently ran across a local product called Anderssen's Life Flax Rolls and was intrigued as we are really trying to up our Omega 3s. We are Paleo about 95% of the time and try to make as most of our food from scratch. Its ski season though and I... (more)

Advertising? I would not eat them. Not because they are made of rye. Just because they look disgusting. There are so many healthier, better ways to eat vegetables and meat than spending money on some rye and flax wrap. You can use regular... (more)

My question is this: Based on scientific research and DIY biohackers are we reaching a upgraded paleo diet? A diet where we take the evolutionary biology of how we as humans process nutrition and tweak that to a superhuman advantage? Science is... (more)

Do you feel superhuman every day eating those foods? If so great, but i suspect we still have a lot to learn about human nutrition. Also I like Ferris and Asprey too, but whos to say they always feel superhuman? It might hurt they rep at admit... (more)

Kale is one for me. I eat it every day and feel like I wouldn't be as strong without it. I also need my two eggs yolks/day, and lately a pint of bone broth. I know it is mostly psychological and no doubt related to some fallacious magic-bullet... (more)

Fresh oysters. I'm starting to feel like Johnny Seed-Oyster on that subject these days. The food that is also a vitamin and mineral supplement. Beyond that, almost anything that's local is a superfood, preferably fresh and wild. Any vaccinum... (more)

My diet currently consists of mainly eggs, meat, and fish for protein and fat... carbs from sweet potato, pumpkin, and squashes... I also drink bone broth everyday. Although this diet gives me incredible energy, I have had problems with... (more)

The only real superfood I bother with is liver. From grassfed animals. 2nd choice is pastured egg yolks. Kale and broccoli come in 3rd place. Not sure what's in this Boku powder, but it's not food, but rather a processed product. I'm not... (more)

Supplementing is one of the hot button issues of Paleo. From what I have read, the general consensus is that some need it more than others to heal from SAD or to be more "Optimal". So with that in mind what "Food Supplement" do you take to try... (more)

I enjoy liver so that's in my mix of meats, and I tolerate sardines so they're in too. Beef is my staple meat. I love and therefore make/consume a lot of bone broth--and I even like to nibble on the smaller (softened) slow-cooked bones. I live in... (more)

WAP recently posted a link to an article from The Autism File about research using camel milk as a treatment for autism. There are interviews with the doctors in which they suggest that part of the reason they see improvement in Autism symptoms is... (more)

Are you familiar with the GAPS Diet? The author claims to have healed her son's Autism through dietary changes. She does consider Autism as related to inflammation, particularly through the gut flora.

I was watching sesame street with my son and it was an episode on super foods. The puppets displaying super foods were broccoli, cheese, banana, and a piece of whole wheat bread. It was all I could do to shut it off, but my son is only 3 and I'm... (more)

For sure on the organs. I would think.. sardines, mackerel, salmon, herring for the Omega 3's and the little bones for calcium. Greens such as kale and spinach - magnesium! Bone stock for the vitamins and the resulting gelatin. Berries. Avocado.... (more)

Hate to use the word superfood, but in this context I'm talkin about non-fruit & non-seed superfoods, suchs as spirulina, chlorella, maca, ashwagandha and other powders. For example, a teaspoon (7 grams) of maca contains about 5 grams of... (more)

When I fast for a whole day (36 hours total) I always drink tea (herbal & green), and I've experimented with everything from 0 calories to a couple Tbsp. of coconut oil. It really depends on what you're going for - coconut oil will actually... (more)

Amazingly expensive for a 63% protein powder... In terms of omega 3/6/etc. Are you really going to be eating enough of this stuff for it to really mean much to you (as compared to fish/flax oil)? Edit: To add on to what I said waaay back when. ... (more)

We hear a lot in the media about this or that being the lastest 'superfood.' Soy is a classic case. However, on inspection, many of these foods do not turn out to be so super after all. Case in point, someone was recently touting purslane (a... (more)
