Research / Re: Need Paleo Book Feedback
« Last post by JayJay on February 14, 2015, 09:20:38 AM »
I still don't get it. You say you want to produce a "credible" book but you haven't stated any credentials. Then you say it's a "personal challenge". All book projects are regardless of the subject matter and the author's knowledge of the subject. You have two whole posts in this forum, both in this thread.

Why don't you start by introducing yourself and your credentials? Nobody useful to your project is going to invest any time in helping you if they don't think this project has a lot of merit to begin with. If you were well known in the field, like Robb Wolf or Dr. Loren Cordain, everyone would be jumping at the opportunity to be involved. But nobody is going to invest their time in a project as complicated as a book if it isn't likely to be significant to the Paleo movement.

Some of the comments in your thread on say it all (none of which are mine since I don't post there).

Good luck.

Cured bacon is questionable for paleo, but uncured - which is to say salt cured - bacon is fairly paleo.  If you are a purist, you can go for pork belly.

I always make it a rule that I can eat anything during breakfast since that I would probably burn some of the calorie intake during the day. I would agree on that some people think eating healthy is always eating a salad or having wheat bread. But that those extra dressings and extra meat would sometimes off set the healthy choices you made. I also don't like drinking sodas or those powdered juices (like that lipton raspberry iced tea). I am a strict believer in that the best diet liquid would be water. No extra calories, sugar or anything. Just something to rehydrate your body which is what you really are after.

I encourage people to eat sea salt and stay away from iodized salt. I need less sea salt for some reason to get the flavor that I want.

Sea salt is more flavorful compared to your average iodized salt. But isn't iodized salt healthier?
Exercises / Re: Crossfit Vs Bodybuilding

I have been trying out the cross-fit training this past month. So far have lost about 6 pounds. There are also a lot of fit and ripped people doing cross-fit, just try searching youtube for cross-fit exercises and look at all the people showing you how do cross-fit and how they look.

I agree with Cave Man Wayne.

I live in London (UK) where Crossfit isn't as mainstream as it is in the US. A standard crossfit monthly membership is 150$, compared to a 50$ gym membership.

I don't understand why the price difference is so huge, especially since the equipment is even simpler...

Highway robbery! The cost of the trainer might be more expensive since, as you said, it is not as mainstream as other forms of exercise, so it might be harder to find a decent trainer?

You could check on your doctor on why you are throwing up after runs. Or you maybe hyponatremic since you are on a paleo diet.  Is there anything that you eat before you run? Might be something along those lines.

I didn't really think of amazon when it comes to these products but I will give it a search and see what would I find. :D Thanks.

Strict paleo indeed help in this kind of problems. Also you have to always check that you are well-hydrated before you start a long run or a heavy work-out. :D

When you say "started on paleo", what "paleo diet" are you into? Are you more of a fruits and vegetable guy or are you more on lean meat? Correct me if I'm wrong but you may have gouty arthritis (the condition you were referring to maybe?). If you search it on the internet it is actually a disease caused by increase deposition of uric acid into your joints. I have read about this as well when I was still getting started on paleo. It is actually not that common but gouty arthritis is linked to paleo diet particularly if you eat more of lean meat. The rationale is that lean meat is rich in purine, it's an amino acid that makes up our DNA and once degraded, undergo catabolism, it will yield uric acid, it's by-product and somehow this increase in the levels of your uric acid could cause gouty arthritis flares.
