Re: Cooking and Digestibility

I should note before this snowballs into a GOMAD thread that I'm not attempting to get huge. I'm more interested in reducing the amount of effort needed to get my daily calories.

Cooking and Digestibility

I was listening to Mat Lalonde talk on the Paleo Summit (WFS) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=4Ll_atbQcLQ), where he discusses some fallacies in the paleo diet and why he eats...

Re: How to gain weight healthy?

I've attempted gaining weight on paleo with a variety of methods over the course of two years. Only one has worked: add something non-paleo to your diet.

For me that has been milk or potatoes. ...

Re: Why do you CrossFit

Re: Why do you CrossFit

I was enticed by their marketing campaign to get stronger, leaner, etc, and I didn't know enough on my own to program my own workouts.

I don't crossfit anymore because I learned enough to go off on...

Re: Help with vegetables

Here's one of my favorites, at least during winter months. It's cheap and the flavor is easily varied.

- Get some greens. Collard, kale, turnip, etc.
- Chop an onion and throw in in a medium heat...

Re: Lifting heavy, FEELING ANGRY. Help?

Vitamin D. It's like the sun in a bottle. I take the 10,000 IU pills in the winter.

Re: Two meals a day

I did this for a while. One meal at about 3000 calories and a second at about 1500. The problem I had with it is there's little room for error. Say I get interrupted in the middle of my giant meal...

Re: Fibre on a Paleo diet

Milk makes me constipated. It seems to be an uncommon problem and I'm told it's because of the calcium content. Magnesium does fix the problem, but that's a dangerous game to play if you forgot how...

Re: Can I gain weight on the Zone Diet?

Yes, increase it all. You're trying to gain weight, so you want to eat more than what is prescribed from a diet designed to make you lose weight.

Re: Paleo BM issues/ fiber

My exact same experience. Ate 5000+ calories every day for about three weeks and lost two pounds. Decided to end the experiment there.

Re: Fish Oil Quality v. Price

Just to give an opposite opinion, that fish oil is absolutely nauseating to me. I bought a bunch of it because it was cheap and ended up throwing most of it away. I tried mixing it with orange...

Re: How strict do I need to be

In my opinion there are two ways to go about figuring this out for yourself.
1. Shoot for "good enough" and if you're happy with the results, then there you go.
2. Go for a 100% clean diet for a...

These forums are abnormally strict and have strange rules. It's a weird little corner of the internet.

I hear the heirloom pizza is especially good. Hard to find the seeds from what I hear though.

Re: Addicted to Trader Joe's Raw Almond Butter. Anyone else?

I've seen them for $2/lb at Winco up in Northern CA. One of the benefits of living in the area where they're harvested.

Or you could do like I was subjected to and have the clean plate club to encourage over-eating.

Re: Zone : mayonnaise help

The conversion for blocks is:
1 block fat = 3g fat*
1 block carbs = 9g carbs
1 block protein = 7g protein

Re: Zone : mayonnaise help

The 60% fat vs. 20% fat that is on packaging or order of ingredients doesn't matter. Look for where the calories (energy) and fat/protein/carbs are listed. It will say something like:

Re: Addicted to Trader Joe's Raw Almond Butter. Anyone else?

I've talked to the paleo gurus about this kind of thing, and the official stance is to cut back on the nuts because of the omega 6.

My personal view is that if you found something that works for...
