I just got a new conditioner, It otherwise doesn't contain any offensive ingredients, but I was just unwrapping it when i saw in the ingredients that it contains hydrollized wheat protein! :( I was REALLY looking forward to using it, it smells... (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.
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)
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)
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?
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)
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)
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)
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)
The Mayo Clinic EmbodyHealth website has a nice list of healthy foods to eat, includes Paleo staples like blueberries, salmon, almonds, broccoli, spinach, sweat potatoes . . . But Mayo adds Red Beans, saying Red beans ??? including small red... (more)
I recently discovered I am wheat intolerant and over the last few years have been gaining without cause. Now that I have cut out wheat I am feeling much better, no more heart burn, headaches, etc. However I am not seeing much in the way of weight... (more)
There is no one size fits all. It's not all or nothing with this diet. Try to eat whole natural foods (fresh meat, fresh vegetables, and fresh fruit) as much as possible and avoid processed foods as much as possible.
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)
Hi, in what way is the WGA less toxic. I react to wheat germ really badly the nest day and it lasts for 3 days. I have just bought some sprouted flour and I feel not right quite soon after consuming.....does anyone know why? I bought some, well... (more)
I've been eating paleo for the past 6 months or so because I've always wanted to be the most healthy version of myself and I think paleo really helped me achieve that. Paleo gave me a good understanding of what it really means to eat "healthy",... (more)
I watched Mat LaLonde's talk at AHS via video. I then watched an interview with him on youtube just a few days ago. He seems like one very smart dude. He takes what he says seriously. The baseline diet for all humans is meat, veggies and tubers.... (more)
Are there any religious paleos out there? If so, do you receive communion? Werid thought that crossed my mind this am while reading wheat belly, by William Davis. because I haven't taken communion since I became paleo. I am a non practicing roman... (more)
I'm doing pretty good with eliminating soy and dairy, and am on the fence about legumes since Archevore is looking pretty appealing as a starting place for me. Wheat and grains are right now the most difficult transition for me. I've severely cut... (more)
