Hi everyone, I'm suffering from some heath issues and trying to fix them.

I want to keep a food log of all the foods that I eat and hopefully will learn along the way

Thanks  :)
Introductions / Howdy to all 2019 Resolution-ers!

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?

Howdy peeps,

Does anyone else find that recipes that are coconut flour driven taste like a mouthful of soap? I found out I'm not alone via google....apparently there is very good reason that I'm practically blowing bubbles when eating the occasional baked treat. Just wondered if anyone else experiences this...what say y'all?

Coleslaw (with compliant mayo), Sweet potato fries (cooked in healthy oil), Sides that don't include smoked meat, Salads (with compliant dressings). Good luck with your local ventures! :)

Hiya Peeps!

Four years Paleo/Primal and going strong. Glad to find a community board of like minds, but really curious as to the low activity on most of the threads? Kids like us have so much to talk about, and if you're anything like me, most around you in real life scratch their heads or scoff at our choices. This is a beautifully set up board (kudos to the creator), and the perfect setting to be buzzing with posts. I hope to add to the 'action'....could be tons o' fun!

Cheers EwGa :)
Donglailly, are you consuming large amounts of nuts, especially raw? Nuts can contain off the chart phytic acid levels (inflammatory) which can irritate the heck out of the colon = gas. Try roasted or soaking methods....worked for me. Also, are you doing any dairy? (another inflammatory). Unfortunately for some Paleo peeps even the 'good stuff' can be a pain when we're GI sensitive.

Rawcus, Warren is correct. Frequent BMs aren't necessary, but understand your frustration. The Paleo bowel is by nature a slower moving beast....and for good reason. Frequent BMs may deplete nutrient adsorption along with a host of other probs. I had the same feelings as you in the beginning, but given time it became 'normal' and your body & mind adjust. If you still want to go forth with frequent BMs get psyllium husk or flaxseed into your diet....usually works like a charm. :)

Morning Rentawitch (love the s/n)

No I didn't mention it to the hospital staff. As I said earlier I wasn't Paleo for a 1.5 year out of treatment. What I can tell you is this. My MO (medical oncologist) said "don't be going on a crazy diet"....this after not saying a word about my trying vegetarian, vegan, calorie reduction, no exercise plans. My Surgeon didn't even blink, nor comment. My PCP was all for it, said "this is the way we were meant to eat". I was also seeing a GI specialist because I'd developed ulcerative colitis after chemo & rads. Within a month of going Paleo he said the following "whatever you're doing, keep doing it". My ulcerative colitis hasn't shown it's ugly face since I switched up to Paleo (4 years now)....remission? cured? No clue, but it works for me.  I find the reaction from the medical community mixed. For the most part I find they make a helluva lot of assumption without actually knowing the we're all eating sides of bbq beef for breakfast. A friend of mine has an oncologist that is hopefully viewpoints are changing. End of the day, my bloodwork has been termed 'perfect' now, tummy is great, energy huge and muscle mass increased, which is the proof in the pudding for me.

Hi no chemo for me. Still waiting for histology to see if lymph nodes affected. Operation plus radiology plus oestrogen suppression thereafter probably. Ty for replying. Did hospital comment on diet or didnt you tell them?
