Hello, I'm Gray and I'm new to the forum.
Diet and nutrition / Does Brown Rice offer any benefits for me?
« Last post by han on May 29, 2016, 06:05:22 AM »
Brown rice is high is arsenic!! Various articles advising to avoid it on Chris Kresser, MDA and Paloemom. Definitely not recommended for children!

White rice has lower levels of arsenic so more acceptable as a starch inclusion IF you feel you need the extra carbs to account for activity/excercise. White rice is essentially just starch so has no antinutrient a or other minerals so not obvious benefits or negatives other than small levels of arsenic (so not recommended more than a few times a week) and a boost to starch calories.

Exercises / Re: Slackline recommendations?

Wow, ya know... I've had this in the back of my head for a while to try it out and maybe the kids would like it too.  Now you have me Googling and looking at various products, etc.

Personally, I know these slacklines are just straps a little hardware.  I wouldn't chase a brand name too much unless they have a good return policy etc. in case your people don't like it.

Here's a nice little kit on eBay for $34.95 US:

It's 50 feet long which should be long enough if you have trees or a deck post that you can fit to.  Let me know what you find.  Could also search Amazon for slackline - I know they have a ton, but closer to $59 each I think.

Exercises / Slackline recommendations?

I would like to get DP a slackline. He weighs about 15-16stone. Any recommendations or pointers for a complete beginner?

Also I think my nephew would find one fun. He weighs a lot less, maybe 11-12 stone at a complete guess. 17yrs old, obsessed with having a 6 pack! Very gymnastic ally minded! Would he need a different one? I don't know how much variation there is for different weights?

I know, right!

Last night I decided to have myself a little cheat meal. I had sweet potato fries with dipping sauce and then from froyo for dessert. Not only did my energy get drained but I got a nasty headache and ended up going right to bed. Stepped on the scale this morning—for fun—and I was up a pound. Mostly cause of all the water retention probably. But I have noticed that for the past few weeks of Paleo eating, my weight doesn't fluctuate in leaps and bounds like it does when I eat carbs. It is a steady decrease or relatively the same by a few points.

One night with carbs and sugar and i'm up a pound. Hahaha. I DIDN'T even enjoy it. I think it's great that Paleo eating is so satisfying that cheat meals feel gross. Never again.  NOT worth it.
Hi Hanna

I am new to the site and new to Paleo, so pls take what write with  grain of sault (my experience mostly comes from low-carbing.) It's been rumored on low carb forums and from my experience it is so, that over time we develop intolerance to carbs. Myself, after lets say 2 months of strict low carbing, if i happen to pig out on something overly carby-suggary, i feel unwell, get bloated, start feeling exhausted, depressed, , i start binging etc. I am not sure if there's such phenomena on Paleo, but i am afraid it is pretty much possible  :(
Diet and nutrition / Re: Best places to but ingredients in the UK

I think you'd be surprised how much good stuff you can find in the ethnic supermarkets - Indian, Chinese. Don't discount those.

Secondly - depending on where you live you might have a Wholefoods Supermarket near you. They are really good and perfect for something like paleo. Be prepared to cough up though.

Among the supermarkets, I'd say you've got a bigger chance to find good stuff in Waitrose than the others.

Finally - like you said there's always the internet. Trial and error.
In general I think internet vendors are usually good though. It's extremely rare you get ripped off by a UK vendor.
Diet and nutrition / On Paleo - Practically passed out after a bowl of pasta
« Last post by Hanna on May 21, 2016, 07:25:44 AM »
I've been on paleo for 21 days.
Yesterday night I decided to make a little exception and have a meal of pasta with grated cheese and spinach.
About 1.5 hour or so after I had this meal I felt a bit tired.

I went to lie down for just a short while. I was overcome by extreme sluggishness and decided on the spot not to go out that evening but stay in..
Next I knew it was four in the morning! I literally passed out...

Something similar has happened to me when overeating sugary foods in the past.

Is my body now oversensitive to things like pasta, i.e. white flour or what could have happened?
