Hi Doctor Dave, We have just starting making whole milk kefir and really enjoying it, my wife, Judy, especially, because, she came from the south and loves buttermilk. I have also just started the paleo diet, your version, and have lost 8 pounds... (more)
Hi, I am starting my second paleo whole 30. The first one went fine, was a bit tired at first but then smooth. I did the first whole 30 in Jan and ate mainly paleo until June - I may have had the occasional rice, potato and slice of bread. I... (more)
My understanding is that extra-virgin olive oil should not be used for cooking since it can oxidize more quickly. I'm wondering where I can find non-extra virgin olive oil. I've looked at Whole Foods and Trader Joe's and they only seem to carry... (more)
Extra virgin is fine to cook with, just don't burn it (as with any oil). I've dumped coconut oil. Olive oil or butter is all I bother with anymore, red palm oil for vitamin E too.
I'm on day 24 of the Whole 30. I've been having trouble pooping. My stools are not hard but it feels like everything is all stuck inside my gut and I can feel I need to poop but nothing wants to move. Feels like it's sludge inside :( When I pass... (more)
humans are not ruminant animals...stop eating salads and spinach...vegetables are either impossible to digest due to cellulose or contain goitrogens which inhibit metabolism, and therefore, can cause constipation...also nuts are not helping you... (more)
I'm looking for some good digestion super-boosting fermented foods at whole foods. What's at the top of your list? I've been frequenting the Bubbie's Pickles and Sauerkraut and KimChi.
hi ph, just finished a w30 and it was pretty awesome. (cooking was a pita though) i was feeling mellow, calm, and mentally and emotionally... smooth and stable. so fast forward and i ate my first bowl of white rice yesterday and im feeling... (more)
I went grocery shopping at whole foods today for grass fed and finished beef. I couldn't find anything that said specifically "grass-fed" in the meat section. All I found was vegatarian diet. Is this the same?
I have been well within the " Paleosphere " for quite a while. I have noticed many things coming into play that have intrigued me. Paleo is changing, it's the most simple way I can put it. It seems Primal/Paleo used to be all about eating so much... (more)
I've been buying Kale chips and raw 'cookies' ( dehydrated veggies plus flax seeds) and thinking of making them myself by buying a dehydrator so I can have some nice snacks on the go and then I asked myself 'Does it make sense to dehydrate?'... (more)
I know I'm preaching to the choir with this one and it's just an n=1 but it might come in handy to show some non-believers especially diabetics. Do you think n=1's like this can be persuasive? (more)
Okay, maybe it's not Whole Foods Market per se, but maybe the Whole Foods Market lifestyle? I have been shopping at WF for a few years now. It all started when I became a vegan. I went to WF to get the organic vegan food with no preservatives... (more)
How many edible kcalories are in a whole cow (or similar animal), including organs, marrow, etc? What is the distribution of fat to protein? How does being grass or grain fed affect this?
The calories are irrelevant but there's lots of bio-available protein, healthy saturated fats, an unknown balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids and flavor.
Hey- I drink A LOT of organic whole milk.. (stonyfield, horizon, greenway brands etc..). I drink maybe 1/2 a gallon every 2 days.. I am 178 lbs and going to crossfit. any dangers with consuming so much milk?
Personally, I would try to eliminate it for a month, then add it back in. If there is no change, then you're good. If you can't do a month, then try at least 2 weeks before adding it back in.
Note that I did not add the notorious "MC". Recently, I stumbled upon this video with Jamie Oliver: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S9B7im8aQjo Up until the point where he adds the stabilizer and bread crumbs I thought that might be one very... (more)
I was in Whole Food last night looking over some lovely chicken thighs. Next to me was an old crone, picking through the sad, denuded, flavorless chicken breasts. Glancing toward me, she espied my poultry choice and, lifting a bony finger she... (more)
I know someone mentioned that HyperLipid has the procedure but I couldn't find it so if anyone has made it's own cream, do share. Also what percentage would that cream be ?
