I've been having bleeding under the skin which I finally realized was a case of "solar purpura" or "actineal purpura". From what I understand, years of sun damage (from my childhood on a tropical island and years of driving with my arm on the car... (more)
What's everyone elses experience with removing wheat/gluten from their diet? The big trend that I hear a lot of right now is gluten. Yes, gluten can be *extremely* bad for you physically and mentally and that's fairly easily quantified.... (more)
There's a Gluten Summit going on this week for anyone that's interested in more on this topic. Have no affiliation with them but find it fascinating and free.
There are a few threads regarding soy sauce, I know... Apparently a lot of celiac Japanese enjoy soy sauce (with wheat) without issue. Then a lot of Americans claim it makes them terribly ill. I'm probably not celiac. I try to keep... (more)
Fish sauce is my answer to all things soy sauce. It makes a strong statement on your food and you only need a small dose instead of a drenching. Fermenting certainly changes things but that science is above my knowledge.
So ive bern "paleo/primal" for quite a while now, at the beginning i wad super-strict, but moved now to a more moderate approach of the diet, i eat potatoes/rice after most workouts, have some full-fat, organic yogurt nearly daily and some... (more)
Okay, so I have a really big question about gluten that I can't seem to find an answer for. I'm not following the Paleo diet but I happened to stumble upon this site a few days ago and I've been refreshing the "questions" page every chance I get--... (more)
I have been advised to try wheat germ oil for the stretch marks and was wondering if it's going to have the same negative effect on my body as consuming wheat? Also, my favourite lip balm contains wheat germ oil, is that dangerous as well? Many... (more)
Have a question on gluten cross contamination. Unfortunately, I'm the only one in my family in line with any kind of paleo/primal/traditional/whole food dietary/lifestyle way of eating and living, which means there's lots of gluten in my home.... (more)
Hey!! I am paleo for s month now, but got a very bad Pms, birthday and was curious how other foods will affect me. So I decided to eat bread (I live in Germany and here is the best bread on Earth!). I ate. A lot. The next day I was double:... (more)
im wondering if people with gluten sensitivity gets these symptoms. i finished eating an amy's kitchen pizza about a half hour ago, and now im starting to experience some tinnitus, neck pain, tachycardia and i can also feel every beat vibrate... (more)
I have not bought the book, but from their website and others, the list of prohibited items appears to be waaaaay too restrictive for me, although I'd like to try the program. Could I expect any appreciable results with a modified elemination of... (more)
Do you think this nasty bout of brain-fog I've had today is to blame on that wheat-coated fish fillet, especially after a 100% clean diet last week? I'm also allowing myself 100 grams of carbs (everything else was gourd/paleo friendly). DO you... (more)
Brain fog is from tripping on minutiae. Just think about what you are going to be eating next.
Hi guys, long time since I've been on this forum, I've kind of drifted away from paleo, perhaps because I've been on Prozac for the last six months (came off a month ago) and am no longer depressed and as a result perhaps not so orthorexic I had... (more)
Hey all! So I haven't been tested for gluten intolerance yet, but have rather just avoided it forever because I had a bad experience with it during my childhood. I do know that I am very sensitive to it. Anyway, this morning I accidentally... (more)
Sometimes I feel like I cannot be satiated on just paleo...I feel like if I add a piece of bread to the end of my meal when I don't feel "complete" I will feel more satiated. Does anyone else feel this way? Can be wheat be satiating?
I've been paleo for over 4 months now. I hadn't had any wheat but 4 days ago had a bowl of pasta. Major and fleeting lapse in judgement, I know..alcohol was involved. For the first 2 days after this, I slept over 16 hours each day. I'm STILL... (more)
Ok just stumbled on something, I know it is a grain but if you hit up some research about it and tell me... What do you think? Our Paleo ancestors would have eaten this am I correct? Too bad I don't live in Italy where it goes by the name Farro (more)
I can't scare up a link right now, but I watched a documentary called "The Ascent of Man" its from the 70s or 80s. In the section about agriculture they discuss wheat domestication. The short from is; man gather wheat for food; man learned to... (more)
I was listening to a podcast with Paul Jaminet and he basically stated that the dry heat processing that's used with many industrial "foods" doesn't actually destroy WGA. I've also heard Kurt Harris say that he's seen literature that indicated WGA... (more)
Hello, I've been eating a paleolithic diet since about Thanksgiving of last year. I've lost roughly 25 lbs and for the first few months there were no issues. In late January I asked a question here because I thought I was having some digestive... (more)
Occasionally I find myself in situations where eating wheat products or grains is inevitable, like if you are out and the only food option is a bakery, and you are f-ing starving. Anyway, this happens to me occasionally, then about 1/2 an hour... (more)
My family seems to think I have an issue since I started this diet. I am too "extreme"in my eating since I will no longer touch flour/wheat. For example, I saw that my Mom was making a dish for our family lunch today that would be contaminated... (more)
Some good responses here so far.?? I love this topic, so I tend to write profusely about it. So please pardon the length. This problem isn't confined to paleo.?? Most anyone who changes their diet significantly from what their family eats goes... (more)
Maybe you've seen Denise Minger's blog posts (If not check out "The China Study, Wheat, and Heart Disease; Oh My!" where she discusses the strong correlation she found between wheat and heart disease in the raw china study data. Yes, ultimately it... (more)
I'm just curious, as a one-time gluten-sensitive person (haven't been for years), if you were to stop eating wheat and other grains (as per Dr. Davis' "Wheat Belly" book), would your body ultimately become unable to digest those foods if ever you... (more)
For a while, I allowed myself "cheats," so I wouldn't obsess over cravings for the non-/anti-nutritive foods I was addicted to (i.e. "feel deprived"). I very soon thereafter gave up on cheating, because those cheat foods I didn't want to "feel... (more)
I just came across this interesting study and I'm not sure what to make of it. In a randomized controlled trial, participants were fed either white bread or whole grain sourdough style wheat bread for 6-weeks (the whole wheat contained some other... (more)
