My skin isn't dry but the last time I went into ketosis (and first time also), my skin got so dry, my hands where dry and it looked like the "scales" on it were larger if you know what I mean. It was worse when I woke up. My lips also got really... (more)
I guess is because once you don't eat too much carbs, you lose water from the muscles at the beginning. I think you should drink more water. But i'm not an expert, sorry.
Hi Guys, I've been doing some research on the best form and dosage of magnesium, but I am quite surprised by the various different types you can get: ascorbate, aspartate, chelate, citrate, glycinate, malate, oxide, plus more! Even more worrying... (more)
A recent post on the Nutrition and Physical Regeneration blog caused me to wonder about the safety of water fluoridation. Is it really necessary or safe? (more)
This sounds crazy to me but was reading on a nutrition forum that distilled water is unhealthy because all the minerals are removed. Also said that purified water is acidic to the body? That it takes away minerals from the body? I drink reverse... (more)
Wanted to get a consensus opinion on this, since there hasn't been a post here comparing these two specifically. For context, I live in upstate NY, and the water from the tap is relatively clean. It has no chlorine added I believe, and tastes... (more)
Because water from "spring" sources has basically no electrolytes or minerals, for the past year or two I've been putting lemons and/or limes in the plastic gallon jugs of water in the fridge to mitigate this risk. It never really occurred to me... (more)
Quick search of 'sweating' on paleohacks and I see lots of complaints about excessive sweating. Well, I have the exact opposite: I never sweat. This is something that's been going on with me since I can remember. As a child I once remember... (more)
Maybe you need more salt, potassium, and other stuff you lose through sweat. Maybe your body is conserving these things and will sweat more if you have more water and electrolytes... Ever track your nutrients?
Folks, I am about to start and Paleo regime and wanted to ask about decaf coffee. I have been drinking decaf for well over 10 years now and it is one drink I really enjoy. I also drink sugar free orange squash (but not much) but these are the... (more)
I've found that I'm making 3 or 4 trips to the toilet at night, despite not or barely topping up on water at night. I know water loss is common on any low carb diet, but how long does it go on for? Any other related factors I could consider? (more)
When I'm consuming lots of fat I'm never thirsty. I do get some liquid from bone broth that I use as a soup base for many of my meals but I rarely just drink water. I've read on the web that one should drink lots of water on a ketogenic... (more)
Hey everyone.. So I've been on Paleo for about a month now. Doing really well, have treated myself once in a while but overall eating supper healthy. Since I've been on Paleo, all I drink is water (I try to drink 2-4 L in a day, all depends... (more)
I have a HUGE problem with water retention. I know this because my arms and legs receive indents in the skin from even small pressure. For example, I will rest my purse on my knees and get marks, I will sit on grass and have grass-shaped indents... (more)
So Three months ago I did a water fast. I did it for the cleanse but also too loose weight. Before I was 58 kg and i'm 163 cm tall. Before the fast I could eat basically whatever I wanted and how much I wanted without gaining anything. I did the... (more)
How about this brilliant idea....Don't do either fast, and just eat real wholesome foods, in moderation, and get some exercise. Fasting like you are proposing will cause you to lose water weight, and will tell your body to store fat as soon as... (more)
I've always found tap water generally unpleasant. I want to hydrate/ find a solution to tasty/healthy/clean-feeling water. (TL;DR: Tap water tastes bad. Mineral "(filtered over minerals for a clean, crisp taste") PUR filter + tap water tastes... (more)
I admit im a water snob and only drink purified water. Living in SF we have good tap water coming from the sierra nevada's but the whole flouride/chloramine thing they add to city water still scares me. I have a plastic bottle from these guys... (more)
So I've been watching naked and afraid on discovery channel and anytime someone drinks the water before boiling it they get sick. Then today I was watching planet earth and how they mayans had to live off water from flooded underground caves. I... (more)

The article contains some true statements, some errors, and many non-scientific, unsupported assertions. It would be tedious to read the article line by line and categorize all the statements. I don't think the article merits that much attention.... (more)
Hi folks, after reading this article ( http://www.westonaprice.org/dentistry/invisible-toothbrush ) on the connection between ascorbic acid and poor dental health, I'm wondering of how much value the measured Vit C content in the subject's blood... (more)
While searching for hydration information, I came across a posting by Jack Kruse: http://www.jackkruse.com/quantum-biology-4-coherent-water/ He states that: "Coherent water is a different animal altogether. It is water that is structured to be... (more)

I love coconut water after a workout, I'm new to Paleo and not sure, any help would be great. Thanks.
Ok, so I am fairly new to paleo and have only recently been trying out new recipes. Before I was only modifying my go-to meals and cutting out anything that had flour. I have to say that the change has been AMAZING... I'm down nearly 30 lbs, with... (more)
I have recently discovered a love of coconut water. I drink about half a litre a day. I am looking to cut fat. it has a lot of sugar. Should I be drinking as much or it at all?? I generally bring a carton to crossfit to drink during and post workout. (more)
Most of the coconut waters I have found have way too much sugar in them. IMO.
