If we are perfectly adapted to a paleo lifestyle then does that mean we are best suited to a world without government in terms of general happiness?

What are peoples opinions?

mmm GS a lot of the shit you say is crazy. Why would anyone agree to kill themself for some ulterior motive of the government? Only people who go that far have religious ideology that allows them to do that ie muslim. However i find it extremely suspicious that the most wanted man in the United States was thrown out to sea less than 24 hours of being killed.

I'm with you in that I consider GS's opinions devoid of logic. And the stuff he has said on 9/11 in this post has been crazy. I believe 9/11 was an inside job though.

I can't answer why someone would want to kill themselves for the government. To avoid years of torture perhaps. Watch 'Loose Change' if you're interested - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7E3oIbO0AWE

Try entering your diet into fitday or cron-o-meter and see if you're way under the RDA in any of the vitamins and minerals.  A test for nutritional deficiencies might be a good idea, if you can.  Are you taking Vit D? 

How is your weight?  Any big gains or losses, or difficulty gaining or losing?  Are you drinking enough water (dehydration can cause wrinkling and lightheaded feelings)?

Paleo should be meeting all your nutritional needs, but if you're not getting enough variety in fresh foods, you might encounter some problems.  Just something else to rule out, since that would be an easy fix.

No big gains or losses and I am drinking enough. I also get a decent amount of vitamins and minerals

- At the age of 23 I am getting wrinkles around my mouth?!
- I am getting light headed
- I have alopecia which is getting worse
- My nails are brittle
- Dry skin which is making my forehead itchy


I would say that probably you need more fat, or just more food and nutrients in general.  But then again, I'm 24, 60% of cals from fat and I still get dry skin.

But generally, light headed + dry skin = not enough food/fat.
Wrinkles will be from dry skin.  Unless you use sunbeds, in which case case closed!

Thats the thing I easily eat 2500 calories per day. The wrinkles did appear after laying out in the sun. I don't see why the sun would cause me to wrinkle though

Have you been following the recommendations in your previous two different food journals that list the same health problems? Do you stick with the caveman/paleo woe for more than 30 days?

Yes. I have been on it for months. I admit I still eat butter and olive oil but I don't see why it would cause the problems that I have.

Hello Everyone,

Iíve been studying heart disease for the last several months. I decided it would be helpful to survey a handful of people about what they know, or think they know, about heart disease.

This only takes about 2 minutes. You can write short, bullet point answers. Iím interested in what you know right now. So donít do any research until AFTER you do the survey.

This is not for a class or a formal research paper. Itís my own project.

Thank you!  :)


1 What causes heart disease?

Inflammation and small dense LDL cholesterol.

2 What foods contribute to heart disease?

Carbs, trans fats, sugar.

3 What are some heart healthy foods?

Meat, Veg, Nuts, Eggs, Fish

4 Does exercise help prevent heart disease? What kind of exercise?

High intensity training, sprinting, walking.

5 How long has cholesterol been around? Answer in number of years.


No Idea.

Diet and nutrition / Understanding paleo and grass-fed meat
« on: April 01, 2011, 03:52:11 AM »
I don't understand how anyone doing grass-fed paleo can get enough fat in their diet? I just had a couple of pork belly cuts arrive and they are so lean. I couldn't imagine getting 200 grams of fat from grass-fed meat. Any suggestions?

Diet and nutrition / Re: Getting Off (the diet) Occasionally
« on: March 29, 2011, 03:42:23 AM »
Yeah so one of the blokes in my Krav class was on Paleo months ago, I'm not sure how long he was on it but he mentioned he quit the diet because it was just too inconvenient when he traveled.  While he was reintroducing a more traditional diet he said he had a piece of bread and was on the toilet all day because of it!  I was shocked that bread would have that effect.  So what I'm wondering is how long do you have to be on Paleo to get that kind of response?  I broke my diet one day out of necessity (bonked really bad in the mountains). My stomach was gurgling away uncharacteristically all day long.  It got me thinking that maybe it wouldn't be a bad idea to maintain a tolerance to the non-paleo stuff so I don't get sick if I have to bail for a bit.  Paleo is great when you're at home and all but how are you going to swing it in a foreign country especially if you are traveling with limited means?  I don't even want to know.  I shudder at the thought of even going to France on this diet, lol.

Anyway, what do you think?  Prudent idea or one that just negates the whole purpose of the diet?

France is famous for its cheese, if worse comes to worst then you can always get a lot of your food from there. Eating a lot of nuts could help if you don't have a cooker as they are easy to carry around.

So you're eating raw chicken and pork on a regular basis then?

No raw pork for me.  I think their tapeworms can migrate to parts of the human body like the brain.

Raw chicken and goat... organic only, and only when I dream about it.

My regulars are: beef (muscle, fat, liver, heart, marrow), horse, lamb, various fish big and small, shrimp, oysters, clams, squid.

Parasites are easily eliminated with coconut cream and coconut meat and lemon-salt water flushes.  Herbs also work nicely too, even when I was on cooked SAD I had parasites.

I also vouch I never had problems with bacteria.  The technique is to keep the meat  unwrapped, open to the air in the refrigerator... it gains good bacteria.

In my experience here in Manila, the grain fed beef and grain fed chicken taste bad raw.  While the grass fed beef and organic chicken taste good raw.

------

We need saturated fat because that seems to be the preferred fat of our bodies.

Why would you want to risk getting tapeworm? Thats what put me off trying raw paleo before, seeing a video of you or someone else with a tapeworm crawling out their finger.

I recently had blood tests done for my alopecia and one of the tests I had was for my thyroid which I forgot so it can't be that.

The same problems remain which is really odd. I feel good compared to a SAD so am gunna stick with it. Might try cutting down on the IF as I do tend to eat all food within 3 hours every day

Food eaten recently

Liver
Kidney
Tuna
Rasberries
Blueberries
Onion
Asparagus
Spare fatty cuts from the butchers
