And another one from the same date, 27th March. I took some more today but I'm not seeing a lot of difference so I'll give it a few more weeks.

Introductions / Hi from London
« Last post by MattfromLondon on April 11, 2019, 02:36:31 PM »
Hiya everybody, I'm Matt from London in the UK. I got into Paleo eating about 7 or 8 years ago but completely fell off the wagon when I lived in Barcelona for a few years. I'm 40 and I've got pretty fat. So I'm coming back to a paleo diet to sort my body out and for my overall health.

I'm putting some pics in here, mainly because it will give me a marker and make it a bit public so I'm more likely to stick with this. So I'll see dates and progress.

Things about Paleo that interest me: movement and caveman exercises and calisthenic type stuff, recipes obviously and paleo versions of traditional meals. And also love hearing people's success stories.

Anyway, best wishes and thanks for reading :-)

You can fry meat in oil, absolutely!  I use tallow and bacon grease.

You could try the almond flour, but it might throw you out of ketosis.

Food Journals / Re: Breaking my food down Journal

Good idea to start a food journal.  I hope you come back and keep it up.

For what it's worth, acid reflux was one of the problems that for me got worse on paleo before it got better.  I postulate this was because the stomach acid got stronger immediately, perhaps in response to more meat in the diet, but the strengthening of the sphincter muscle that kept it in the stomach and out of the esophagus took a bit longer.  I haven't had problems with it in years, though.

Everyone must have a strong and regular Dental Care routine. It will not only help you prevent dental issues but it is also a good way to have a better overall health. I am also following the instructions offered by the [link removed]. I had really weak teeth but now they are turning up very strong.

Food Journals / Breaking my food down Journal
« Last post by ken979 on February 18, 2019, 10:32:22 AM »
I have some health issue's (acid reflux) I had it for over 3 years and decided to try and fix it with food. I'm still not a very good cook but I guess eating the nutrition is the most important part. I cheat so one of my goals is not to cheat so often. I find it hard going out for food as eating food with my GF gives me joy. Sometimes salads is expensive and don't fill you up. I cheat with rice or noodles. I also cheat with fast food, I know its super bad :/ This is about once a week

A brief description of what I do and eat:

Because I have low levels of stomach acid, when I eat, some of the vegetables do not digest properly. The vegetable's that are easy to digest, I just eat it. Vegetables like lettuce, Romanian lettuces, cauliflower and carrots I eat. The rest of the vegetables I just use my juicer. I do balance it out with small amounts of high fibre vegetables like broccoli and leafy greens (I eat these but in small amounts).

In future, I will add some kale and cabbage in small amounts. I'm juicing celery and cucumber a lot. Normally its one and half cups of celery juice and one cup of cucumber juice. The goal is to eventually to eat all vegetables when my health gets better. 

I also added bone broth to my diet. I do cow and pig bones. I do believe the key to health will be broth and juicing.

I added cow liver and lamb heart to the diet. I realise recently, to get all the nutrition in your body, you have to eat organ meats as well as muscle meat and drink the bones. I try and eat cow liver 2 times as week because of low levels of B12, after the 2nd or 3rd day I feel fatigue. When my health gets better, I will only eat liver once a week. 

The issue and problem I have IS I eat too fast and too much. I have been trying to fix this for over 3 years and I still do it. This causes inflammation in my body.

For my acid reflux, I looked into Johnathan's Wrights book (why stomach acid is good for you). I been taking HCL with pepsin's capsule's. I also been taking B12 vitamin tablets. In future I might consider B12 injections

I been eating sauerkraut and drinking kefir to create good bacteria in my stomach. My digestion is also bad because of my acid reflux, there isn't much stomach acid in the stomach. It's jumped into the oesophagus where it's not supposed to be.

I drink a lot of water and eat eggs and 85 percent cocoa dark chocolate. I do sometimes eat dairy. I sometimes eat fruit but I do forget and need about 15 percent fruit in my diet

Oils for cooking will be: butter, lard and coconut oil. I also use extra virgin olive oil for salads and himalasalt

FOOD I NEED TO EAT MORE OFF:
pork, salmon, lamb heart and juice more vegetables.
Fruits to consider; pears, bananas, peach and Sharon fruit


MY STUDY LIST IN THE FUTURE:
I want to read Jason Fung's fasting book. I also want to look into testosterone replacement therapy. Books about juicing and what the right combination is. I need to read a book about fast food and how it destroys the body.

I only started the juicing and broth only recently and need to give it time to work. It was the same with organ meats as well. I have started the Hcl with pepsins and B12 tablets 3 months ago. For about 2 and 3 years I didn't take my health so serious and hasn't improved much. Now I will keep a food journal and hopefully it will help me.

Introductions / Howdy to all 2019 Resolution-ers!
« Last post by Bride_of_Chaos on January 07, 2019, 02:16:41 PM »
Howdy, all,

Like many of you, I started this way of eating/living as my main resolution for 2019.  And like many, I've tried just about every diet and found I couldn't live with them long-term.  This, I think, will be different.

Am only a week in, 10 lbs. down, and only had one day of low-carb flu (yesterday).

After trying my initial book - 28 Days to Paleo - I've found one I like the recipes more - The Big 15 Paleo Cookbook.  Less "baked egg" recipes and more easy/quick ones that taste better.  Still have to make my own ketchup!

Thought I'd miss the cheese more than anything and haven't too much.  Don't want to open the door again by trying the "nut cheeses"...which sounds almost as naughty as "nut milk." lol  I'd rather learn to live without.

Anyone wants a Paleo buddy, I'm your girl.  Have another friend who has Crohn's who is hoping this will help her...and another with MS, thinking about it still.

How's everyone's week been so far?

Cheerio,
Wendy
