They are crack-cocaine to me. Fiber-One bars? Breakfast cereal? Bread? Crackers? Chips? Rendered me insatiable. My life is so much more sane without the case of the nomnomnoms brought on by grains. Knowing that the longer I'm off grains, the more... (more)
WSJ recently published an article about gluten. Read it and come back here. [Try not to have any conniptions when they refer abstaining from wheat and dairy as "restricted".] Anyhow, what jumped out at me was: In a novel study,... (more)
Let???s say I manage to avoid all gluten for an extended period of time (weeks, months, whatever); if I succumb to a cupcake, will I feel sicker than someone who regularly indulges? Or do I perhaps bounce back more quickly from the indulgence than... (more)
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've dropped all wheat and other gluten-containing grains from my diet. Once I've completed my supposed detox period, I'd like to do a rigorous test of whether wheat makes me sick / weak / allergic / addicted. I'm thinking about testing myself... (more)
So this subject came up the other day on a FB group and I didn't really get any useful information... I know that for the average person wheat is likely to be less than ideal. Fructans, low-bio-availability of vitamins and minerals, gliadin... (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)

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)
Ate wheat for the first time in 3 weeks and my tongue and mouth are itchy and i feel nauseas, could this be a reaction to wheat??? I have been strict on my paleo for the last few weeks and gave wheat a shot this weekend as i had two kid birthday... (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 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)
I was talking to a friend of mine about wheat and it being harmful. I told her there was a lot of evidence that it was, but she said that basically you can find evidence for every side of the story. That you could find studies saying it's healthy,... (more)
Hi, I eat wheat. I eat it a few days a week, well, actually, I drink it in the form of beer. I added it back into my diet after healing my gut. I have not gained weight back and my symptoms have not relapsed. Other people have had the same... (more)
Curious about this one, cause I haven't yet developed the taste for Chopin, which is notably distilled from potatoes. Most other vodkas (Grey Goose, Absolut, etc) are distilled from wheat. Anyone know if they contain gluten or not?
Gluten is removed during distillation, so they should be gluten-free unless they have had gluten-containing flavoring added.
A coworker of mine came into my cube today after hearing that I didn't eat wheat. After explaining to him why he became very curious. He says that in Northern India (were he is from) the diet is primarily Wheat, Lentils, and Rice. He states... (more)

I decided to try the Paleo diet due to a wheat and corn allergy I've ignored for years. After only three days on Paleo, my stomach and digestive issues/pain were 100% GONE. Unfortunately, I've been really sick lately (flu, then Strep, then... (more)
