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)

This website has nutritional information from actual assays of kefir (though it was grown from a culture, not from grains, and only fermented 24 hours). They found a 50% reduction in lactose, which indicates that there's still quite a bit left. (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)

It sounds like you aren't eating enough calories to fuel a heavy lifting sessions. Personally, if I don't eat enough (even if I feel fool) after a lifting session, I will be ravenous at night or the next day. This also leads to sugar cravings and... (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 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.

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?

It depends on where you are and where you want to be. What are your goals? If you would like to lose weight, then I would advise avoiding or limiting dehydrated fruit/meat. As you note, they are more dense and lend themselves to overconsumption.... (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?

ScottMGS 0 · February 26, 2011 at 1:00 AM

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.

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.

You've heard cream rises to the top? :-) The easiest way is to get a cooler or jar that has a pour spout at the bottom. Let the milk set undisturbed overnight than drain off the (now skim) milk. The fat percentage of the cream is going to be... (more)
