Diet and nutrition / White Rice vs Fruit for Athletic Performance
« on: November 09, 2013, 01:08:42 PM »
I'm curious as to what other members, especially the Paleo veterans of this website have to say about white rice as a supplement to athletic performance. It seems all the rage to eat paleo and add foods like white rice, sweet potatoes, raw milk, etc. Most because their "not that bad" or some other line of reasoning.

Does white rice replenish glycogen stores more efficiently than fruit? In my opinion, rice has nothing to offer that fruit cannot provide. Am I wrong?

Thanks for the clarification Warren. I cook eggs with Kerrygold butter when I don't have any lard so I guess I'm not sensitive to it.

Come to think of it, that's a reason for avoiding butter and its milk proteins as well.

Does this apply to butter from grass fed cows as well?

You're probably still having insulin spikes from food which is making ou hungry even after you eat. You're also still adaptin to ketosis. Eat more fat and more meat in general. Eventually ou should be able to fast for 6-16 hours at a time without being so hungry. Right now your fat is locked in your fat cells and won't budge making you hungry, given time and the proper eating and your body will release it between meals.

I feel like running if the distance to where I'm going is more than 30 feet away and I usually do. People at my school looked at me weird at first but now everyone knows me as a paleo dieter so they expect me to run.

Diet and nutrition / Re: 70% Daily Fat Intake too Much????
« on: April 17, 2011, 11:21:22 PM »
The people on that thread are beyond idiotic and probably beyond help. My head would explode due to stress if I got involved over there.

It might sound bad but I'm glad the majority of people think this way. Makes grass-fed beef a viable option for me!

Hey Jean, glad to see you're benefiting from making the transition. Eventually, you'll probably just end up getting rid of wheat all together. Cheats are inevitable for must of us, just try to minimize the damage as much as possible. Example:Take the bread off of a sandwich or burger and it is pretty close to paleo.

I disagree entirely. As long as I get at least 7-10 hours of sleep(depending on activity levels) and plenty of pastured animal fat I feel great. I rarely ever have more than 75 grams of carbs and days that I do nothing but sit around my house, I have virtually none(save for the small amount in eggs).

To me, this short article doesn't even come close to competing with Taube's or any other Low carb research. I would say that part of the year(winter) that Paleo IS synonymous with Low carb because of fatter game animals and less fruit/veg. Summer time would be plenty of opportunity for escaping the low carb paleo diet. Of course, regional variations must be taken into account as well.

Any ideas on Paleo without any meat? I have been doing research on diets for MS and they seem to promote raw fruits and vegetables more than anything else. Thanks

It is certainly possible. I'd ask what your definition of meat is though, because if you are willing to eat high quality wild caught fish and pastured eggs then you should be able to reap the benefits without eating larger land animals. I would say that wild caught seafood and pastured eggs along with all of the other paleo foods like fruits, nuts, and veg are 100% paleo.

There is nothing impossible to him who will try. Try shifting your paradigm. In other words, equate all paleo food to food and everything else as non-food. Just think of all of the benefits and read some of the stories people have posted on here about how well this diet actually works. Don't limit fruit intake at first if that helps you stay on the diet and not eating other crap. Good luck!

Diet and nutrition / Re: CKD Vs Paleo
« on: March 28, 2011, 10:09:59 AM »
CKD - cyclic ketogenic diet - is probably great for losing muscle weight, because it puts you through gluconeogenesis on a regular basis, after each carb fest when you go back into ketosis.

Wouldn't I be in glucogenesis if I was just following a very low carb diet anyways? What is the minimum amount of carbohydrate needed to avoid glucogenesis?

From memory the Masai don't develop diabetes from their milk consumption.

Again, I wonder if the treatment of milk (pastuerization, homogenization) is playing some role in that.

Does anyone know how much milk the traditional Masai diet contained? I imagine it would be predominately meat. I would guess that they remained insulin sensitive despite drinking milk because they were active enough and their diet contained plenty of fat.

I would assume the Masai milk to be better quality because it would be raw and from grass-fed cows. Introducing crap quality milk would probably have some detrimental consequences.

Most are just as bad as religious fanatics. They have their preconceived ideas and they'll shut out anything that doesn't agree with it. I have seen one(vegan) on the internet that acknowledges that free range meat is one of the best things to eat and actually argues with other vegans about it. The funny thing is that he calls people who eat Paleo "nuts" or "quacks".

Diet and nutrition / Re: Insulin Sensitivity

The idea that low carb high fat diets can lead to insulin resistance is actually the complete opposite of what happens, and to see that written on a site would lead me to completely write it off as a relevant source of information.

Exactly what I was thinking. I was also thinking that perhaps carbivores who remain lean do so because of their insulin sensitivity. Basically the reasoning in that article is this:

"Insulin sensitivity seems to be the most important factor dictating how the body will handle carbs. For those who have high insulin sensitivity, the body responds to carb intake with small insulin surges. Although the insulin surges are small, the cells are very responsive to that little amount of insulin and do a great job of becoming anabolic. Since lots of insulin can inhibit fat loss, the ideal scenario is to become very insulin sensitive so that only small amounts of insulin are required for anabolism and so that those small amounts of insulin don't prevent fat loss."

Everything I have read indicates that chronic carbohydrate consumption leads to insulin resistance eventually. Just wondering if there was  any credence to this.

Diet and nutrition / Insulin Sensitivity

I was reading this article:

and was wondering if there is any reason to think that a long term low carb diet would decrease insulin sensitivity?
