    I don't mean wheat in particular has any crazy-inducing properties of its own. I was saying that eating large amounts of any food that is rich in manganese could be a problem if excess manganese can...

    Well, the vegetarians I know eat plenty of fat and cholesterol in the form of eggs, dairy, vegetable oils, nuts, and junk foods like cookies and chocolate. Not sure vegetarians are necessarily short...

    Any time you lose a lot of weight you will look older. The skin was stretched tight from the excess fat. Remove the fat and the previously over-stretched skin sags and wrinkles. It doesn't matter how...

    Can Grains Make You Crazy?

    I had an interesting experience recently. Because some of the best sources of manganese are grains and legumes, which we eliminate when eating paleo, I got the silly idea I should supplement...

    Another bad thing is there was no comparison food. They compared it to fasting. I'd imagine your whole system operates a little differently when fasting. Did they also test blood flow after a...

    More CW "proof" that fat is killing you

    This is the worst "study" ever, I think. Only 20 people, just 1 sandwich eaten, and a one-time measurement of blood flow and suddenly it's definitely the fat that's impairing blood flow.
    They claim...

    I think women's brains are messed up because of cultural pressure and Hollywood brain-washing. I have thought I was fat my whole life. In my 20's I even resorted to amphetamines to lose weight. I did...

    Oily Eyelids

    Since I've been eating primal I've noticed my upper eyelids get oily and shiny a lot. Sometimes I have to wipe them off because I can actually feel the oily stickiness when I blink and it bugs me. ...

    I never understood how any alcohol can be carb-free. I thought there were basically 3 types of food energy: carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. It seems to me all food and drink should fall into one...

    I notice no effect from wheat if I eat a little just once. But in this case I ate it several days in a row. It takes a few doses to build up a reaction I guess.

    I think the opposite is true. Wild tuna often live longer than farmed fish so they have more time to accumulate mercury in their system. The issues with farm raised fish are more often about PCBs...
  14. Does anyone's cholesterol NOT go up on primal?

    I've read a lot of posts about people freaking out when their cholesterol numbers go up after eating primal for a while. I know many argue this is not necessarily bad. But that's beside the point...

    My hair was dirty for the first time in 6 months. Since going primal about 6 months or so ago I am amazed how much longer my hair, teeth, and skin feel clean. I can go 3-4 days between showers...

    I've heard you should not eat tuna more than once or twice a month due to the high levels of mercury. You might want to do a little research online about tuna and mercury.

    What? You gained weight but not eating wheat? I thought it was usually the other way around. What do you think would cause that? Compensation by eating more of other stuff to try and curb cravings?

    Bodies are definitely different so you can't assume they know something you don't. I knew a guy who would regularly eat HUGE quantities of food and calories. I mean, if we went to MacDonald's it was...

    There's usually a doctor somewhere who will take cash or Medicaid. If you can't afford to pay, and don't have Medicaid, there still may be other options. I don't know where you live but most areas...

    I learned my lesson. Feeling depressed about having to give up dairy I decided I would allow myself a little wheat. I got a small loaf of "light" whole grain bread and at a slice or two a day. After...

    Hmm. Why do you say grains are empty calories? Yes, white flour is empty. But a whole grain bread slice does have protein, fats, vitamins, and minerals. Maybe not as nutritionally dense and liver or...

    No, I can't do coconut oil. I just don't like it enough to tolerate it flavoring all my foods with coconut flavor. I like a little in my coffee with cacao powder. But the idea of frying my eggs in...

    Wait. You're saying in a week your weight fluctuated a little over a pound? My weight fluctuates that much in a day depending on how much sodium/water I consumed or sweated out. I agree, don't look...
