Diet and nutrition / Organic Protein?
« Last post by piratepress on July 26, 2016, 08:59:19 AM »
I started my Paleo diet one month ago with much success, so I want to be careful what I eat. Presently, I've been using Jay Robb's egg white protein but it is hard to find and very expensive (roughly $2.50 per serving). I have a tub of Orgain Organic Protein and I wondered if it would be okay to use it even though it has some organic brown rice in the formula. I know that is not Paleo but I was curious if I could use it since it was in such small quantities? It would be much easier and more economical. Thanks!

Diet and nutrition / Too much almond in my diet?
« Last post by piratepress on July 26, 2016, 08:27:07 AM »
Hello all, I'm a first-timer here and started paleo one month ago. My question is whether or not I'm consuming too much almond in my diet? For breakfast, I typically have a grain-free cereal with almond milk, lunch is an egg-white protein shake with almond butter and almond milk, and I typically snack on a handful of chocolate-covered almonds in the afternoon. Dinner contains no almonds.

I'm feeling really good on the paleo diet so I don't want to overdo it. Any suggestions or observations would be appreciated. Thanks!

Progress Reports & Photos / One Month Pics
« Last post by jmoore312 on July 25, 2016, 07:07:40 AM »
One month in and I feel like this may be exactly what I needed.  Not feeling like a diet at all and am seeing great results.  So far, almost 10 pounds down and two inches off the waist.  Definitely not as tired during the day (just started noticing this last week) but still have the slight back pain.  I did notice there was no change in my waist this past week but after doing some reading, I now understand the immediate two inches was most likely water and that fat can come off different pasts of the body at different times so not discouraged at all.

Hi Guys,

Pretty much what it says on the tin. If I take a vitamin which is fat soluble (and not already packaged with fat e.g. in capsules) how quickly afterwards should I consume some fat? Also, how much fat needs to go along with them for full absorption?

Right some I'm having vitamin D supps and washing them down with a fatty coffee each morning.

Thanks,
Cowlean

Diet and nutrition / Re: Women and Fasting

Hm, interesting.  Could be due to child bearing processes, etc.  Fat accumulates on the most important parts of their bodies for babies - breasts and buttocks (stronger to carry child, etc.)

I also KNOW for a fact that women who often think they are the most healthy can often stop menstruating - so is that really healthy or not (I think not)

Diet and nutrition / Women and Fasting

Hi Guys,

For all the women out there who have tried intermittent fasting or fasting of any sort, I'm interested to know about your experiences on it.

As a man, I've found it to be very successful, but for women I hear it can be non-beneficial if not outright harmful.

Have you tried it? Have you found success with different methods?

Thanks,
Cowlean

Diet and nutrition / Re: Any good Paleo Cookbooks/Recipe Collections?

I have found and tried some recipes here.  To Warrens point, I know there are some that are not 100% Paleo but most seem to be.  Good luck!

Keep in mind that many of the supposedly "paleo" cookbooks out there aren't actually very paleo.  Personally I prefer picking out paleo recipes from comprehensive cookbooks like the old Joy of Cooking.

Does that imply then that we need to consume fats to work out lymphatic system? (bit of bro science theorising going on here...)

Hmmm, good point.

What's your opinion on magnesium supplementation?

Lymphocytes and the lymphatic system are related; sorry if I seemed to imply otherwise.  The lymphatic system is a way for lymphocytes to aggregate where they are needed.  This is why lymph nodes swell when we get sick.

I wouldn't necessarily further increase the dosage of vitamin C until after seeing a follow up blood test.
