After a while learning new foreign recipes, I have noticed that traditionally many countries (specially Asian) rely on finding a balance of two or more flavors, one of them being sweet. For example, Thailand/Vietnam tries to balance spicy,... (more)

Rice isn't actually a paleo approved grain. White rice in particular has a higher GI level as well. If you wanted to have a rice I would recommend brown rice otherwise stick to paleo approved starches as in pumpkin kumura etc

How are you on fats? I have autoimmune, too. I find it EASY to cook everything in coconut oil and drizzle cooked veg with EVOO. That may help, working on turning your body into burning fat rather than carbs.

How do obese Americans become that way eating a "healthy" low fat diet. Grains, PUFAS, sugar and repeat. You don't need to overeat to become obese if you're predisposed to insulin resistance through genetics and environmental toxins.

Likely the same phenomenon that you see in hard-boiled eggs. Iron + sulfur = green iron sulfide. Egg whites are sulfur rich, there's likely enough iron in the potatoes to react with it.

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?

PhysiqueRescue 0 · October 03, 2012 at 07:08 PM

Another consideration is the fructose content of the fruit. If the goal is weight loss, avoid all together. If consuming in moderation opt for low fructose/low glycemic fruits. Here is a great reference for you. Matt PhysiqueRescue.com (more)
