Introductions / New Guy here
« Last post by thx1158 on January 23, 2015, 12:45:53 PM »
Hello folks! I'm a 56 year old male now on Day 6. I've been very strict thus far and I'm looking to detoxify and reverse a few chronic medical conditions. Look forward to the interactions here and picking up a few tips.

Diet and nutrition / Re: Is it Paleo? (flowchart)

I followed the "no" logic from top to bottom and it resulted in being paleo. I guess I'm too serious but must admit it must of taken some time and thought to construct the flowchart. Nice piece of work. I try to keep it simple for the most part and if you have been in the diet or have had an interest you should have a pretty good idea of what to eat. I think visuals help and here is an infographic that displays paleo. http://www.mypaleodiet.org/paleo-diet-infographic/
I really like this simple chart. Very helpful  :)

Hi, I am new to the paleo scene,
I have been looking for paleo websites with recipes but I am finding you have to buy a lot of the recipes.
I have been using paleosecrets.com and paleodietrecipesinfo.com and taste.com they have been really good and are free but I am looking for  more!
What are some other good websites with free recipes that are raw paleo and are free?

Thanks!

If the neanderthals in question were actually gathering plants to eat, which I highly doubt, then there's no reason to believe that the gathering was distinct from the beginnings of agriculture.
Regardless of whether you think it makes a difference or not, please humor me with an answer to my question--which do you think it was, Neanderthal Levantine agriculture of domesticated plants or gathering of wild plants?
It seems to me that the quoted portion of my post answers your question.  If not, you'll have to clarify.

Now, a question for you.  Given that the levantine neanderthal finds involve a lot more grassy cereal grains than legumes, do you believe that grains should be added to the paleo diet as well as legumes?  The evidence is weaker for the legumes than for the grains, after all.
I'll gladly answer your question after you answer mine. Give and take--it's only fair. It will also help to make my answer more understandable.
I answered the question as best I could.  You are just being evasive.

Diet and nutrition / Re: What can help my aching joints?

Machine, do you eat tomatoes or other nightshades?  In some people, like myself, they cause arthritis.  This is highly repeatable:  if I eat a substantial amount of, say, tomato, some of my finger joints start hurting within a day; if I quit, they get better within a day or two.  Tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, and eggplant are all nightshades.

I suffer the same in both my elbows and shoulders. I've been living with this pain too long and did some research and experimentation. Here is what I found. Fried foods, sugars, synthetic sweeteners and iodized salt are typical culprits in inflammation. There are more obvious foods such as dairy products, wheat, gluten, alcohol. I have worked on counter acting these foods with foods that high in certain vitamins and minerals that would take too long to write here, so here is a reference - http://www.mypaleodiet.org/guide-anti-inflammatory-diet/
 I am also trying a new supplement and been on it a week and it appears to be working. It's called Tumeric Curcumin C3 complex. So far 1 elbow feels normal again and the swelling in my knuckle is diminishing. The other elbow I believe has nerve damage and was told it would take surgery.

I know when I started I cut my carb intake down to 30gms per day. It was strictly meat and vegetables and I couldn't poop either. I slowly brought the fruits back into the diet minimally and re-balanced with more vegetable intake. I usually go 2-3 times a day. I'm a clean machine.

Sounds chemical, not paleo.

The main thing to check on sliced meats is that they don't have sugar, flour, or other fillers.
