    primal and gall bladder issues

    Primal Fuel
    I would love to see some advice about eating primal without a gallbladder. No help from the medical world in the UK - apparently it doesn't matter how much fat you eat, the worst that can happen is an upset stomach (!). I've researched it quite a lot and think I need to eat enough fat to use up the fat that constantly drips from the liver into the intestines, which otherwise can make holes in the gut lining. Also I know 2 people with gall bladder problems, but still have the organ, who would like to go primal, but worry about the fat content. Any suggestions you can give would be so welcome. There are quite a few of us out here with this problem. Have been doing the 30 day challenge for 9 days and have lost 8 lbs, ad am practising trial and error with the fats. Thanks, Shahzadi

    I was just diagnosed with gastritis, and my doctor recommended recovery meals of rice, toast, and bananas. Blecch. (He also chided me for my last meal being steak and vegetables.) How can I recover while staying Primal? Would taking probiotics help?
    Thanks, Heather

    Hi Mark,

    Coming from Atkins to Primal Blueprint and I have now convinced my husband to come along on my journey. He has experienced a couple of headaches, I suggested that he might need more salt. However, I think I learned this from the Atkins diet book. Do you have any advice regarding salt intake for avoidance of headaches, or other symptoms?

    Dealing with anti Paleo people

    Looking for a snappy response to this statement I encountered in a Facebook back and forth over the Paleo diet - this is so typical and I run into it regularly.

    "Understand. Paleo is quite controversial and still requires many many more studies. It is not supported too heavily right now in our current state of holistic nutrition. Grains and legumes are vital contributions to reducing cholesterol and reducing colon cancer by up to 70%. Dairy and sugar removal is valuable. There is absolutely nothing wrong with coffee, in fact 1-2 cups per also assist in the reduction of colon cancer.To date Dr. Dean Ornish, M.D. leads the way still in elite nutrition and diet. On the positive note, followup with your bloodwork, colonscopies and bodyfat measurements."

    of course I challenged her conventional wisdom with some links and received this -

    "John Saville there is nothing dubious about "my conventional wisdom." Please share with everyone the only 29 person study and the 15 person study done on the Paleo diet. Inform us when there is an over a 5,000 person double-blinded study performed on these individuals. Share the studies, if you can find them? What your link points out is a succession of obvious facts that are commonly known today. Ms. Anderson it's not my goal to create a controversy here in anyway. You'll discover your own reactions/responses when the time comes.

    Thanks

    I'm nearing the big 50 and have been a vegan for the past three years. In those years I have all but lost my desire for sex, which previously had been on the very high side, (for as long as I can remember). My body has taken a turn for the worse and even though I wasn't an exercise freak, I had always been fit. Could it have been the vegan diet that has put pounds on in my middle and softened my once tight-ish body? My real curiosity here is what effect will being primal have on women entering their transition phase of their lives. Most importantly, will my sex drive come back? This has brought on somewhat of a depression and I am just now giving this a 30 day try. My Peimal Quick and Easy Cookbook arrived today.

    Dear Mark,

    What are your suggestions for use as thickening agents in gravies and sauces? I have read arrowroot and tapioca starch are idea, but also read they cause insulin spikes that are worse than those caused by bread. Any suggestions?

    The Primal Blueprint and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I have been suffering with CFS for years, keeping me out of the workforce and preventing most exercise regimes. I came to the Primal Blueprint mainly because a significant weight loss and correcting a severe iron deficiency still weren't improving my energy levels enough to lift me above barely functional.

    I realize it's a pretty complex issue, especially since the cause of CFS is much disputed, and people suffer from it in varying degrees, but any advice on how to implement PB keeping this particular health challenge in mind would be much appreciated.
    5'2", 55 years, Primal since April. Pre-Primal weight loss, from 216.6 to 157.8
    Primal low: 140.2 (Dec. 3) Goal weight: 135?
    Main Primal goal: beating back my CFS enough to function more normally and start writing again

    More and more, our life has been governed by specialists, who know too little of what lies outside their province to be able to know enough about what takes place within it.

    Red Meat and Risk of Dying

    Hi Mark,

    I came across the following article recently in a newsletter and I'd be interested in what your take might be on it.

    Red Meat and Risk of Dying

    The research keeps piling up against red meat. A new study published this month in Archives of Internal Medicine shows that red meat consumption is associated with an increased risk of all-cause mortality and death from cardiovascular disease and cancer, but that substituting fish and/or poultry in place of red meat leads to better health outcomes.

    Researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health analyzed data from 37,698 men and 83,644 women, with up to 28 years of follow-up. They documented 23,926 deaths, including 5,910 from CVD and 9,464 from cancer.

    "We found that a higher intake of red meat was associated with a significantly elevated risk of total, cardiovascular and cancer mortality, and this association was observed for unprocessed and processed red meat, with a relatively greater risk for processed red meat," the authors comment. "Substitution of fish, poultry, nuts, legumes, low-fat dairy products and whole grains for red meat was associated with a significantly lower risk of mortality."

    "We estimated that 9.3 percent in men and 7.6 percent in women of total deaths during follow-up could be prevented if all the participants consumed fewer than 0.5 servings per day of total red meat in these cohorts," they comment.
