Diet and nutrition / Advanced glycation end products
« Last post by Eric Garza on September 15, 2014, 08:47:46 AM »
Just finished a post on Advanced Glycation End Products (AGEs), which are formed when sugar reacts with proteins and create cross-links in long-lived structural tissues like collagen and myelin. AGEs are also formed when we cook our food at high temperatures, particularly without moisture as in frying, grilling, roasting, etc.

While other heat created toxins like heterocyclic amines, acrylamide and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons are known for carcinogenic and/or mutagenic effects, AGEs have a very different mode of action. Turns out the cross-links they form in our tissues are inflammatory, and seem to play an integral role in the progression of chronic degenerative diseases like diabetes, heart disease and perhaps neurodegenerative diseases too. Dietary consumption of AGEs adds significantly to our body burdens of these compounds, so choosing foods that don't contain as much might be a wise choice for those of us who want to avoid chronic inflammation.

Diet and nutrition / Re: Does Anyone Here Eat Just One Meal a Day?
« Last post by Eric Garza on September 15, 2014, 08:44:10 AM »
I do it fairly commonly. I've gotten myself into the habit of eating only when hungry, and there are definitely days when I'm only hungry enough to eat once. For that matter, there are also days when I'm not hungry enough to eat at all, so I don't...

Whats going on everybody.  New to the site and just wanted to introduce myself

I am a 22 year old male and have been researching the paleo diet for quite some time.  I joined up on the site hopefully to learn more and explore new eating habits that can have a positive effect on my day to day life.  In January 2014 I was 196lbs, the highest I have ever been. I was consuming a college diet and was drinking beer like it was water.  I was still exercising periodically, but all in all-- I put on the weight due to drinking, lack of sleep, and partying to excess. I started my body transformation for a quite horrible reason...I was going to Panama City for spring break and wanted to look good on the beach. As douchy as that sounds thats what i came down to.

Its been a few months and I have gone from 196 to 158lbs.  Everyday I wake up and enjoy looking at myself in the mirror, my confidence has increased, and overall I feel really healthy and good about myself.  My diet over the past 4-5 months has actually been great for the most part. I cut alcohol out to nearly nothing (occasional beer or two on weekend), I have not had soda in months (another contributor to my weight gain), and I have not had fried foods in just as long.  What made me originally research paleo diet options was within the past few weeks I had begun having digestive problems (bloating, irritation, etc.) From what I read/researched, grains can be a huge contributor and it just so happened grains (mainly oats) were a big staple in my diet. As of a week ago I have cut out grains completely to see how my body reacts to the change. The only thing I am worried about is exercise--and getting the right kind of food in my body to supply the energy I need. I do cardio every day rain or shine, and I go to the gym 6 times a week.  I know there are a lot of people out there that are against cardio when it comes to certain diets, but I am going into this new diet track unwilling to cut my cardio, and instead, find ways to eat healthier and maintain the energy levels I need to get more cut, and progress my body even further. I look forward to learning from all of you!

If you're hungry, you might consider eating more.  Thus far, you're really not eating much food.

« Last post by denuhh23 on September 13, 2014, 04:33:13 PM »
Good evening!

My name is Deana and I am completely new to this Paleo world! I haven't started it yet, but I am I'm the research and planning stage. I plan to begin on Monday!

I  in the Air Force and stationed overseas. I am always on the go and I love in the dorms so I do not have access to an oven!

I was wondering if anyone has any resources  to quick easy breakfast and lunch recipes that I could use! I need all the help I can get!

Thank you all!

Food Journals / My first food journal...
« Last post by csse on September 12, 2014, 07:21:41 PM »
Breakfast: 2 eggs, 5 slices of bacon

Lunch: broccoli

Dinner: tried making pancakes with 2 eggs, 1 banana, and half an avocado. And I ate the other half of the avocado. And watermelon.

Last night, I woke up hungry, so I blended vegetable stock with 2 tablespoons of butter. It was tasty! I may try it again with beef stock tonight.

Introductions / Re: Hello! Day 32, many questions

Thanks Warren. I've been slipping in and out of ketosis I think. I started allowing myself to eat potatoes when I felt really weak and cranky. Maybe that has interfered with my progress.

I really don't want to do the autoimmune version of the diet that eliminates eggs, nuts and seeds, but I may have to. I haven't been officially diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder but I have tested positive for several auto-antibodies.
