I know red wine is not paleo being both processed and a toxin but I was wondering what the general consensus is regarding just how bad it is for you.Me and my girlfriend are both low income workers and we rarely eat out, neither of us smoke or use... (more)
This isn't totally a paleo question but I find that the wisdom and practicality of people on this forum often surprise me. So, what's your take? Have any of you done extensive, technical research 'round the web? For me, I'm pretty sure "none"... (more)
The "additives" are there to clarify the wine primarily. You don't drink them. They're removed either by filtration or sedimentation prior to bottling. Not a problem in my opinion. Not that they would be problematic even if you drank them.
I've been mostly paleo for about a year now. I'm pretty loose with the diet on the weekends, mainly cheating with alcohol and sugar. I'd like to dial things in, so I was thinking of doing a Whole 30. I've also been trying to get my husband on... (more)
I've been doing paleo about three years so far. I drink whisky and wine a lot. My friend says that I should reduce my alcohol consumption to require a total paleo lifestyle. So I have to choose between whisky and wine. What of these is more... (more)
Am I the only one to find that when I crave something completely non-paleo in a bad way and then cave in and it isn't as good as I thought it should be or remembered it as being? For example last night I had a glass of my favorite red wine,... (more)
It's very difficult to disentangle our emotional relationships with food, whatever they happen to be. I'm oversimplifying a bit, but the gist of the science says that our earliest memories and associations are made largely from the amygdala part... (more)
I have not had red wine in almost two months, and had about 5 ounces in a half hour period. That was four+ hours ago, and my face and body are still slightly itchy, but particularly my face. I read while researching it here that red wine has... (more)
One more question for today: I need to find some appropriate acidic foods for salads and bone broth. I am cautious about using wine in bone broth because most wines have sulfites. I do not like the taste of the apple cider vinegar, but if it... (more)
Hey Everyone, i hope you are all doing well on your paleo way of eating. I am just curious if anyone else has pork in wine? By that i mean cooking the pork in wine till it is cooked all the way through. It is a greek tradition, so i understand if... (more)
Worrying about a tiny bit of wine cooked in your food is worse for your health than consuming a tiny bit of wine cooked in your food. So my answer is that it's fine but I suppose it really depends on your goals.
I've been doing a 80/20 paleo since half a year now. Since a few weeks I notice some strange things: last week I threw up after I had a party, with a lot of non-paleo products, like beer, wine & camembert (white soft cheese). I thought it was... (more)
I have been doing "almost" Paleo for a month with no weight loss results. I say almost, as I still have not given up cheese and my daily glass of wine. (Gone are bread, pasta, rice, & grains). Have any of you noticed great results when... (more)
I used to drink 2/3 glasses of wine a night, so I decided to cut that down since it felt excessive. Now I think I'm realizing that wine causes me several issues. 1. Insomnia 2. I overheat heavily while trying to sleep 3. I start to sneeze like... (more)
In a strict sense no alcoholic beverage is Paleo, since paleolithic people did not have access to wine, beer or whisky which are all products of the agricultural age. Nevertheless I know that many people in our own Paleo community do not have... (more)
Hello everyone :) I'm very new to Paleo (yesterday was my first day on the diet!) but I've been doing loads of research and getting my hands on as many recipes as I can find. I have a few quick questions though: Milk - Obviously for the most... (more)
Ok, so I was out with friends last Sunday and had quite a few glasses of Ros?? wine (probably 7 or so glasses - we were buying in rounds). On Monday afternoon my hip joints (especially the right one) started to feel really tender and by Tuesday... (more)
Is chewing sugar free gum ok? Is drinking unsweetened black iced tea ok? Is drinking red/white ok? Is eating plantain chips w/ palm olein as the only ingredient ok?
Does it make sense to think that the fermentation process in creating alcoholic drinks (even beer) does a little bit to reduce the negative effects of the grains, etc. that are in there?
When I have a glass of wine or two at night it definitely makes me sleepy and it's less than 5 minutes before my head hits the pillow and I fall a sleep. However, I normally wake up 1-2 times in the middle of the night when drinking wine. How... (more)
This is my first post. I've been reading around here for a couple weeks and loooove this site, so informative, answers so well-thought-out and based on science and/or deep experience. I've read "The Paleo Solution" a couple of times and have... (more)
Hi guys, I'd say I'm about 75% strict paleo, with rare lapses of bread/pasta or a random sugary dessert (you know you're pretty paleo when you have the random pasta-in-a-restaurant dish and have some bad effects after it) What I find myself... (more)
Can we not drink wine? Dont really care about the health part of it as much as if it will stop the weight loss process by impairing optimal body function? Also are "sugar alcohols" bad in terms of optimal body function? ANd therefor inhibit... (more)
I mean like dry white wine or red - not sweet desert wines. I do tend to have a glass or two most evenings and wondered if this was triggering insulin spikes? And if I'd therefore be much better off cutting it out? Though that would seem a shame... (more)
Here's an odd one: I've read many comments where alcohol craving is reduced, but none where it's increased. I switched to a low-carb/paleo diet some months ago and have lost about 25-30 lbs and feel much better (with improving blood chemistry... (more)
