Diet and nutrition / Does Brown Rice offer any benefits for me?
« on: May 29, 2016, 06:05:22 AM »
Brown rice is high is arsenic!! Various articles advising to avoid it on Chris Kresser, MDA and Paloemom. Definitely not recommended for children!

White rice has lower levels of arsenic so more acceptable as a starch inclusion IF you feel you need the extra carbs to account for activity/excercise. White rice is essentially just starch so has no antinutrient a or other minerals so not obvious benefits or negatives other than small levels of arsenic (so not recommended more than a few times a week) and a boost to starch calories.

Exercises / Slackline recommendations?
« on: May 28, 2016, 11:37:02 AM »
I would like to get DP a slackline. He weighs about 15-16stone. Any recommendations or pointers for a complete beginner?

Also I think my nephew would find one fun. He weighs a lot less, maybe 11-12 stone at a complete guess. 17yrs old, obsessed with having a 6 pack! Very gymnastic ally minded! Would he need a different one? I don't know how much variation there is for different weights?

Thanks

Diet and nutrition / Re: Best places to but ingredients in the UK

I am part of a co-op of friends who buy bulk from Suma wholesale and that can be useful if you know you will be using a lot of items such as coconut flour, nuts, dried fruit etc.

But I would say your best bet is actually Ocado who stock all those items (although a Chinese supermarket is the best place to buy arrowroot or tapioca starch.

Can I also recommend that you have a look at recipes with cassava flour for tortillas and even cAkes. The paleomom really rates it and it doesn't have the downside of offsetting your omega oil balance like consumption of nuts will do if you start baking with them a lot.

I used to Bake a lot and found that it really helped me and my family stay on track but have found that I do so less Now we are more settled on a primal path (although for accuracy a sake I will admit to being waaaaaaay off plan at the moment!! I am hoping to claw my way back to paleo when I find the headspace!)
