So I just finished my first week of paleo and I made the mistake of buying Italian sausage with nonfat Milk and and whey in it. I'm using it for dinner in a couple nights and I'm curious to think if you guys think I'll be okay using it or... (more)
I'd eat it and just be careful when shopping next time
What do you thing about it? Assuming it's isolate with zero additives? Like this one for example: http://www.truenutrition.com/p-1100-whey-protein-isolate-cfm-cross-flow-microfiltration-1lb-milk.aspx (more)
This is my first time receiving raw buttermilk (or raw dairy of any sort) from a farm. The raw milk, raw cream, and even kefir (though this was a bit pungent in an odd way, too -- smelled similar to a cow's musk when the milk and cream didn't at... (more)
Genetics aside, isit possible to gain/maintain a decent amount of muscle eating strict paleo? If you have done so how did you do it? Im an ectomorph so maybe just naturally a hard gainer, but any muscle I put on can be lost so easily, so im... (more)
I knew whey protein is not considered strictly paleo for a long time, but I always used it because I had no reason to believe it is bad. But recently I felt a little phlegm-y after having two smoothies in one day, so I did some digging around.... (more)
There is lactose intolerance and there is casein allergy - both components in milk and also found in whey protein concentrate. Whey protein isolate is a very purified version of whey and my question is are there any here who have found an issue... (more)

I've only recently healed my leaky gut but I still suffer from constipation sometimes with dairy. However, I can't seem to pinpoint if the culprit is the lactose or the whey protein. Any suggestions on how to find out for sure?
Because only idiots would drink it. I have been doing Paleo since paleo was cool and it was fairy clear- Lean meats, vegetables, fruits and nuts. That's it. Butter? MCT Oil? What? 10 minutes on this site make sit clear this site is a money... (more)
I took an ALCAT food allergy test some years back and it came back showing me I was allergic to damn near everything Neolithic! Unfortunately, this includes whey and cassein. If I'm allergic to whey, how bad is it for me to take whey after a big... (more)
I had a long talk with a pretty knowledgeable guy at a Vitamin Shoppe a couple days ago and we got to talking about protein powders and the difference between fast absorbing proteins and slow absorbing proteins. He mentioned how whey gets... (more)
i am a crossfiter and am thinking of using whey protein powder for getting in protein in the mornings and after working out. what are the guidlines or where does whey powder fit with paleo?
I know that whey protein is in the gray area, or as Mark Sisson describes it, the 80/20 zone. But as many have said, it's also a complete protein source with glutathione and immune boosting properties. Hedonistically-speaking, whey isolate... (more)
My mother-in-law just got a new Vitamix blender. She and my wife make shakes for breakfast. Both of them are trying to eat healthier. I'd like to know if their shakes are indeed healthy, if they should be doing this everyday, and what could make... (more)
I lift weights x5 a week and typically end my workout with a nice grass-fed, certified rBGH-free whey protein powder. Later in the day, I've been adding a plant-based, soy-free protein powder made from pea protein isolate, brown rice protein... (more)
Sweet whey powder (henceforth "SWP") is a byproduct of making cheese and is a commodity. The protein content of SWP is 13.1% protein by weight. The rest of it is largely sugar (74.5%). See its nutrition fact sheet here. One can buy SWP at $50... (more)
http://www.mtcapra.com/caprotein/ There are a few companies out there offering this. I don't tolerate whey well, but powders are great in a pinch and while on the road (I travel for sports a lot). Anyone tried these with any success? (more)

Hi everyone, I'm looking for a fair and honest critique of my diet. I will be completely honest, and I'm hoping I can get a good assessment. Yes, I have stress in my life and sometimes I only get 7 hours of sleep. Although I certainly understand... (more)
I am on the hunt for an un-denatured (non-denatured) whey protein that does not contain malt, as malt breaks down into MSG. My bestfriend has a neuro-degenerative disease and the diet calls for this criteria; yet I can't find a protein powder... (more)
What is the most paleo-friendly (no flavorings, etc) cold-processed(!) CFM(!) Whey Concentrate (not isolate!) out there? Ideally, a widely available brand. Thank you! UPDATE: As rightly mentioned below, CFM Concentrate doesn't exist. I suggest... (more)
I'm looking at alternatives to whey protein like Pea, Egg and Hemp proteins. I use MyProtein.com in the UK: any thoughts on the following products? http://www.myprotein.com/uk/products/pea_protein_isolate... (more)
Why not just eat more meat, fish, eggs, and other protein rich foods? The paleo diet is all about eating real, whole foods not processed powders.
Leangains suggests that for the optimal workout one should ingest 10g of BCAAs/EEAs or 30g of whey. Obviously this is not paleo. But is there any reason to reject it beyond the sensible heuristic that non-paleo things are unhealhty? I've read... (more)
