Diet and nutrition / Re: urea, dementia, high protein, in the news now.
« Last post by Warren Dew on December 12, 2017, 10:23:02 AM »
To expand on Jayjay's post, the urea could for example, be the result of breakdown of proteins from brain cells after they die.  In this case, the urea would be the result of the dementia, not the cause.

I think it's notable that the principal investigator's main area of study is metabolic syndrome.  Metabolic syndrome eventually leads to high blood sugar levels, overloading of the kidneys to remove the excess blood sugar, and kidney dysfunction, which would interfere with the body's removal of urea.  So even if the urea causes the dementia, it's likely ultimately because of excessive dietary carbohydrate intake, not excessive protein intake.

Diet and nutrition / urea, dementia, high protein, in the news now.

I'd like to know opinions on what is in the health news yesterday about urea being the cause of dementia and one recommendation to prevent such from happening is eat less protein. In my opinion, there is a different reason that ureas are not eliminated properly, not that it is from too much protein. After all, so many people with dementia were raised on canned goods, grains and breads etc.

So please, give me some opinions of your take on this new news.

Almond butter is crap food but in the U.S. Trader Joe's has it salted and unsalted and made only with almonds.

Natural Movement / Planters fasciitis
« Last post by Cait1221 on December 07, 2017, 08:12:24 PM »
So, I've been on and off paleo for a while. I mainly fall off the wagon when I'm running low on funds and need to shop cheaper or rely on what my mother- who refuses to try a paleo diet- is making. But I do my best with staying as paleo as possible. I fell off paleo for a couple of months a while back, and developed a terrible case of plantars fasciitis. One of my jobs has all cement floors and are not very kind to anyone's feet. When I returned to paleo, within a week of 100% strict eating, all the pain in my feet was gone. I couldn't believe it.
Every once in a while I stumble very far off paleo for a little while, and the pain in my feet comes back.
Has anyone else had anything similar to this happen? Does anyone have any suggestions for movements or excersizes I can do to keep this from happening for when I slip up?

I'm sure no one on this site lives in CT, but there's a healthfood store here that grinds their own nut butters- both peanut and almond. I'm betting if you research any kind of local health food store, or hippy food store, you might be able to score a place that grinds there own- with no added oils or sugars.

Diet and nutrition / Re: How do you get variety in your diet?

I agree with CoreyCarolan. Iíve bought a few books so far regarding Paleo, and I was confused at the begining. One book specially helped me with my food choice. I can say one thing I like the best about this book was that you can find all the information you need about Paleo in one place, in one book, such as: meal plans, hacks for dining out, recipesÖ Plus, the results are imminent if you follow the instructions in the book. Iíve managed to lose weight in just some weeks and the key is that you can learn how to reduce just the extra fat and not to kill the nutrients and minerals in the body.
