can someone help me find the answer? I've heard lots of conflicting information.. How many carbs in a cup of quartered sweet and regular potatoes?
Though I have long since given up refined carbs and processed foods, since I can't tolerate ketogenic eating, I do still have some sugar and carbs in my diet, specifically in the form of a tbsp of coconut sugar in my morning tea, and a few small... (more)
Finally decided to start eating lots of sweet potatoes but oh no can't eat them cos they're full of oxolates, white potatoes are nightshades, fruit is full of fructose, grains are obviously out I don't buy into this low carb rubbish so what the... (more)
There's been some research lately showing neuronal control of body weight can change (predispose to weight gain, insulin/leptin resistance etc) simply due to sweet taste itself, insulin triggering or not. Anyone who struggles with weight already... (more)
Hi guys, I have no trouble at all eating sit-down paleo meals, but I need help finding dependable on-the-go snacks. I found other posts about bars, nut and fruit mixes, smoothies and quick-prep snacks. But I need something for the... (more)
Hi guys, I am following an ultra strict version of the auto-immune protocol to try and heal an auto-immune disease. Just meat, fish, a few select well-cooked vegetables, sweet potatoes and green leaves. I also try to encorperate bone broth and... (more)
hi friends, I was VLC for a few months after discovering Gary Taubes, then read Archevore and decided that was more sound (I don't hate GT or low-carbers or anything and respect that lifestyle, I'll probably do VLC again sometime) anyway I'm... (more)
Hi there, I noticed something new about my body and food today When I eat white rice as my days worth of safe starch I can't seem to satisfy my appetite. However, when I eat sweet potato, I am satiated with a much smaller amount of... (more)
Hi guys, I follow the auto-immune protocol for the Paleo diet and it's been amazing and I feel great! : ) Since starting this diet I've lost a shed load of weight, about 15 kilos in 4 months. Before I was totally ripped so all this weight was... (more)
I love extremely dark chocolate. 90% or above. Since I've only just started eating it, I've only tried two brands: Lindt and Green & Blacks. I've found that the Green & Blacks taste a lot sweeter than the Lindt bar, for the same... (more)
So I'm experimenting with a few different things in the upcoming months because I'm interested in seeing if I can make permanent changes once and for all in my dietary habits. I've been curious about Primal and Paleo as a lifestyle paradigm shift,... (more)
Been doing this for two years after diabetes II diagnosis. No sweet to speak of except cream and cheese. An occasional fruit from my trees, but very rarely. It's an interesting "sacrifice", but my bloodwork shows the results.
Lately I've been unappetized by meat and vegetables, which are, as I'm sure you all know, the bread and butter of the Paleo diet, but I just can't seem to stomach them lately. I wasn't able to finish the power greens salad with leftover... (more)
I just baked the purple sweet potatoes and it was a little soft on one end with blakish dots in the middle of the potato around the soft bad end. So I baked the potatoes with egg whites to give it some crisp but what i found was the egg whites... (more)
I regularly eat raw sweet potato on the car ride home after karate. I view it the same as eating raw carrot. Are there any potential issues with eating raw sweet potato?
I hate low glycemic fruits like berries, apples, pears. I love mangoes, Sapote mamey, pinapple, papayas, bananas, prunes, figs and dates and other high glycemic fruits. Are high glycemic fruits bad for metabolism, insulin or blood sugar?
I'v eaten real healthy or the past 5 years. I had imflamation in my achilles, mental fog, tiredness during the day where i would need naps, or if i had big events i'd make sure i was alone and had a good nap. I always had to drink a TON of water.... (more)
Just gotta say... I LOVE THESE. I know making your own sweet potato fries is far healthier but sometimes I just don't feel like it... haha to say the least. On the ingredients of these babies though it does say "unbleached wheat flour" :( I would... (more)
I almost ask this as a rhetorical question because I know it's terrible, it's sweet, artificial and it is ohh so cooling. But that's the problem it freshens your breath more than anything else short term. It is far too inconvenient for me to... (more)
So I am pretty new to Paleo. & when I started I was doing great, with exercise and crossfit I've lost about 6 pounds of overall body fat in a short amount of time. However, for some WEIRD reason I can NOT stop wanting chocolate. I am not one... (more)
Possibly mental, you may also be craving certain minerals and/or vitamins. Grab a 90% dark chocolate bar and eat it. Lots of good fats, very little sugar. See if this helps to quench the cravings.
Hi, aware that different colour sweet potatoes have different content. Recently have been eating market bought bright orange sweet potatoes. The flesh is almost red and when cooked tons of "gloop" comes out. I normally eat run of the mill super... (more)
What foods can I keep in a dorm room that would be good staple foods? So far I can think of sardines and sweet potatoes...plus a jar of coconut oil. Any other things? Not a huge nut fan, so other things would be preferred. Thanks!
Surely you have a small dorm fridge...? Load it up with hard boiled eggs! I'd say coconut butter and coconut shreds along with your coconut oil. Cans of tuna. Get over your nut thing. Or try sunflower or pumpkin seeds.
I used to eat huge amounts of spinach..at least a couple cups a day and after a while I wasn't recovering from my workouts and my muscles were always sore. Google searches turned my attention to oxalates. I stopped eating spinach for a couple... (more)
I had to switch from sweet potatoes to plantains for this very reason. Oxalates seem to mess me up bad (achy joints, bad sleep).
