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?

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?

Exercises / Squats and Sprints
« on: January 14, 2011, 11:59:42 AM »
Would it be too taxing on my quads to do sprinting the day after I do squats? Also, how many squats should I be able to do before I up the ante(weight)?

Exercises / Compound Lifts
« on: December 24, 2010, 07:05:09 PM »
Alright, so I've got

1. Squats
2. Deadlifts
3. Bench press
4. Rows
5. Pull ups
6. Military press

and I also do sprinting/HIIT as well.

My question is this: should I combine all of these lifts into one super workout or should I just concentrate on a few of them one session at a time?

Also, is it a bad idea to lift after I've been sprinting?

Miscellaneous / Fibromyalgia

A girl I recently met has fibromyalgia and I'm wondering if anyone knows anything or has any experience in dealing with it. Would eating paleo help at all?

.5 oz walnuts

Trip to the zoo- snack walnuts and strawberries

Anyone know anything about this? Looks legitimate to me.

Diet and nutrition / Taxonomic Discrimination
« on: September 08, 2010, 11:51:15 PM »
I was having a discussion with a vegetarian friend when she told me that she just might go ahead and try some fish. I've heard this before and I always call them on their taxonomic discrimination.

Why is it morally acceptable for some people to kill and eat fish but not chickens or pigs or cattle? I never understood this.

Diet and nutrition / Goat's milk
« on: August 25, 2010, 10:06:10 AM »
My new neighbors have finally settled in and most of them are Nubian goats. They're very generous and allow me to take fresh milk sometimes.
So, for the past two weeks I've been drinking fresh raw Nubian goat's milk after workouts. I thought that adding in dairy after a year and a half of strict paleo would take the vigor of paleolithic dieting out of my life.

Of course, I read up on goat's milk and it's supposed to be easier to digest than cow's milk and apparently raw milk is way better for you than the pasteurized variety. Makes sense to me. I think this is why I'm not getting any acne or any other noticeable detrimental effects to my health. And yes I know about the gigantic insulin spike, which is why I only drank it after an intense workout.

I know other people here have tried dairy and hated it or have seen great results from lack of it. Perhaps this was because it was crappy quality milk?

Diet and nutrition / Allergic to meat?
« on: July 06, 2010, 10:12:05 PM »
Lately I've been hearing the statement: "No thanks, I'm allergic to meat."

Hearing that makes me wonder if the person is a vegetarian and just wants an easy way out of eating meat. I say I'm lactose intolerant and that I have celiac disease all the time when random people who I will never see me again offer me food, so maybe they're doing the same? It is much easier than saying: "I follow a diet that emulates a paleolithic hunter-gatherer as closely as possible." Most people don't really understand the concept of the paleo diet and dismiss it as a fad diet regardless of how much I try to explain it.

I can understand Chicken allergies, since it is a new world poultry. But being allergic to beef or buffalo? Is that possible?

Research / Vegan Diet
« on: June 16, 2010, 09:22:07 PM »
I'm doing an academic research paper for my writing class, if anyone can point me to some legitimate scientific journals...

right now the topic I've submitted is: A vegan(maybe vegetarian if I can find enough sources for it) diet is not optimal and potentially hazardous to your health.

something along the lines of: anti-nutrients in grains, saturated fat is not bad for you. Anything like that would be great. Thanks.

Diet and nutrition / Caveman and Protein Toxicity
« on: April 08, 2010, 09:52:08 PM »
I was thinking about all the times when a paleolithic human would have been able to catch fish or small game but not have access to larger game. Bringing their macro-nutrient ratio to be dominated by protein. Because, of course, they would eat this food whether they could add fat to their diet or not, so what about protein toxicity? Is protein toxicity something that would only happen after a long time without fat in the diet or would eating nothing but fish for a couple days have detrimental effects? Also, would adipose tissue release more fat to fuel cells with a better proportion of fat and protein? Or has every human ever always had access to plenty of fat?

Miscellaneous / Sleep Problems
« on: March 26, 2010, 05:12:29 PM »
I haven't been able to get a full night's sleep for about a week now. I keep waking up from a sound sleep and it's making me feel tired much faster and I just don't feel like myself.

I'm currently very low carb paleo with wild fish, grass-fed meat and liver, spinach, lettuce, almonds, and some coconut as my staples. I've been taking a calcium and magnesium supplement and I bought a new brand recently. I was thinking that might be the problem but I've always taken the same amount with another brand. The ingredients  on the calcium-magnesium supplements are: gelatin, croscarmellose sodium, purified water, MCT, Magnesium stearate, and magnesium aspartate.

Also, I turn all the lights off at about 9-10PM so I don't think that is the problem.

Anyone see any obvious problems here?

Exercises / Not Hungry After workout
« on: March 11, 2010, 06:58:21 PM »
Just not feeling any hunger at all after an hour workout today. Went for a bike ride up and down hills followed by weight lifting. It's been an hour so far, so I guess I'll just eat when I'm hungry. Any negative side effects to NOT eating post work-out?

Diet and nutrition / Superfluous Quality Calories
« on: March 10, 2010, 07:32:55 PM »
I've just been assuming, since I started this diet, that it isn't possible to gain body fat without dietary carbohydrate. Is there a limit to the quality fat and protein we can eat? Will excess protein be converted into glucose and stored as fat or be excreted? Is it possible to gain body fat from an excess of free fatty acids?
