when I took this screenshot (on the PH homepage) it already had around 20 answers when I clicked through the question link (http://paleohacks.com/questions/168308/is-skinnyme-tea-weightloss-tea-safe.html) (more)
Meat burnout?--I go through periods, where I just want to eat raw, plant things. I've had to battle cravings for tempeh before even though I never ate it regularly. I get sick of meat 3X a day.
So I was listening to Abel James' podcast where he interviewed Mira and Jayson Carlton and Mira at one point discusses her previous unhealthy diet where she ate spinach salads for lunch. There seemed to be an inaudible OMG coming from the podcast... (more)
Just wondering here.... If someone went on a paleo low cal diet and lost significant weight (15#s in 3 weeks) is a possible complication the release of neurotoxic viruses/bacteria? Could it be sudden onset? I ask because I got some crazy shit... (more)
so here's one for you... by way of quick background, i'm a two-year paleo eater, and i eat mix of macros. no anti_x_ dogma, beyond grain, legume & industrial oil avoidance. no calorie deficits, not trying to lose or gain fat. after i eat, i... (more)
Maybe it is desperation, but I feel like there must be something to restoring beneficial bacteria to your skin via "live" masks. Going to try it out with goat kefir later this week but I am wondering if anyone else has tried yogurt / kefir / any... (more)
I have used a mask made of home-made raw full-fat yoghurt, turmeric powder and raw manuka honey. It's great for inflamed skin (I make it thicker for a spot treatment mask, or thinner for an all over mask). Be aware however, of turmeric's potential... (more)
I often find that I get CRAZY HOT after a meal. Sometimes I get flushed and sweaty, but most often I just get really, really hot without any visible changes. I've mostly ignored these weird hot flashes, but today I had a really intense one and... (more)
Each day at lunch a friend of mine enjoys a bowl of pre-cooked organic white rice the she buys from Fresh and Easy. The ingredient label reads: Organic white rice, Glucono Delta Lactone. When she asked what Glucono Delta Lactone was, I was at a... (more)
It seems to be a reoccuring pattern on these boards, people who have to completely avoid nuts and nut butters (myself included), because they trigger an instant binge. Does anyone have any literature on why nuts have this magical power to induce... (more)
Wasnt the Honey Badger eating rice crispies a while back and copping lots of flack for doing so?
By avoiding allergens and otherwise reducing inflammation, I've actually caused myself a problem. How to fix it? So get this: During both of my pregnancies I experience(d) fantastically annoying spasms deep in my left ear (eustacian tube) and... (more)
So, I recently went to the doctor for shot, check-up, and a few other things. At the end of the appointment I mentioned that I've been having this tender soreness just on the inside of my right hip, in my pelvic region. The doctor checked my lymph... (more)
I'm curious about light therapies in general. I've been considering a light box for some time now for SAD. In the meanwhile, I have visited a tan salon a few times for a pick-me-up. I do enjoy it, go occassionally and always cover my face with a... (more)
Cliff originally posted this question: User AndyM changed my answer from: "Low carb diets basically trick your body into thinking its starving which lowers your metabolism. Eating more carbohydrates typically raises the metabolism and... (more)
According to the site records records, Andym has trolled before and been suspended. Considering this is a second offense and a rather offensive offense, he will probably be permanently banned on the site. Also, I am changing this question to be a... (more)
After taking Peter's quiz and scoring 100%, I've made some jam according to the instructions. I know it's not paleo, but what can I make with this stuff? http://high-fat-nutrition.blogspot.com/2011/11/lirko-mice-3-mcq.html (more)
The LIRKO mouse urine jam thing would be funny, but that post was an example of where Peter let his sarcasm and humor get in the way of some basics. If you're going to analyze the LIRKO mouse as a vet with the background and education to... (more)
Is this normal?! Actually under good light looks kinda black/blue. I cooked liver in butter with garlic and onion powder and had pretty much ate all that. Threw scrambled eggs with the yolks mostly raw on the plate and then a hunk of... (more)
Eggs have iron and your sauerkraut probably has some hydrogen sulfide (that's probably not a good thing, it's toxic). It's simple chemistry from there Fe + S => black iron sulfides.
..apparently for many days? i guess it must be some kind of bot or something. i can't fathom the hows and whys of this; it's just something i noticed a few minutes ago. it affects me not at all. it just seems kind of weird/wrong. e.g.... (more)
Yet again as I watch the news this morning, I see a story that gets my cortisol levels all in a tizzy. http://www.boston.com/Boston/dailydose/2011/08/red-meat-raises-diabetes-risk-how-lower/3yqJCekuIOrEzanf1USdVJ/index.html Thats right! Red meat... (more)
My jaws never get fatigued, except now. I just ate 2 lbs of meat and my jaws are totaly fatigued. May this be a sort of signalling that I've had enough food? Should I continue eating the food merely unchewed? I can still manage to get more food... (more)
I think you should take your tired jaw as a signal that you should stop eating unless you're being paid to eat the 2 pounds of meat in one sitting in some sort of contest in which case, man up and choke it down!
I've been doing hardcore elimination diets for a year or two, experimenting. I was never able to stick to ketosis because of the carb cravings. It took tremendous willpower and I could only do a couple of months without cheating. Recently I... (more)
I do think micronutrients matter, particularly in ketosis. The iodine in the scallops can help support the thyroid, which is important since there is some evidence that low-carb can lead to low-thyroid issues (which may actually be more about... (more)
I've been paleo-flexible (dairy if I feel like it, small indulgences when I feel I'd be missing out) for about 10 weeks, and I've dropped almost 20lbs and made great strides in my sports training. My adult-low bodyweight thus far is right around... (more)
You need to be evaluated by a healthcare provider. If access (usually related to lack of insurance) is an issue, call your nearest public health clinic and ask if they have a women's health care program/ Nurse Practitioner that can evaluate you.... (more)
this is odd, but weeks/days i am eating more carbs especially seasonal fruit now, my nose is A LOT rounder lol. when i stick to meat fat and veggies, it is pointier... is it just water or is there something to this?
So I've talked on here before about this really super frustrating weight loss stall that I've been in since March. I had tried giving up dairy, ZC, VLC, moderate carb, various protein amounts, higher fat, Whole30, counting calories, tracking and... (more)
My question is how to avoid this state? I am apprehensive that I may be overconsuming calcium in the form of two eggshells per day. What is the best dose per day for the athletic young man and what are the best arguments pro and con?
This contradicts just about everything I thought I knew about type 2 diabetes. From http://www.diabetes.org/diabetes-basics/diabetes-myths/: Myth: Eating too much sugar causes diabetes. Fact: No, it does not. ... type 2 diabetes is caused... (more)
