Looking yellow around the gills--Can paleo/primal diets harm your kidneys?
My husband has started the Primal Blueprint diet and been trading carbs for protein and fats for a week, and his skin is looking a few shades yellower. WebMD is of course bringing out the inner hypocondriac in all of us, but we're concerned that his kidneys aren't processing the spike in protein very well. Is this just a side-effect of starting?
(We're not really tracking consumption. We're trying to keep a 1:1 ratio of meats and plants and just eating until we're content. We have noticed that we don't need seconds or thirds anymore, so lots of leftovers for lunches.)
