The Pros and Cons of Coffee | The Paleo Mom

January 26, 2013 Leave a comment

Another very valuable-more than a – tidbit of information about the effects of coffee and its relationship to gluten/wheat and . Although I just restocked my coffee, and recently bought a new stainless 2 cup Moka pot, I think I will try eliminating coffee. I really have thought about this for some time..and I know that when I “suspect” something and have an idea on my mind-it is usually intuitive and the best thing to follow. Coming cross this article certainly reinforces my thoughts/inclinations. Tomorrow I shall start with a significant decrease (eliminate 1 mug). It is very possible by tomorrow morning I could change my mind and go cold turkey. I am very much a cold turkey approach person. Embrace or do not embrace.

The Grainfree Gang Forum

October 24, 2012 Leave a comment

You are all invited to come over to The GrainFree Gang   which is a new forum in development for discussion and resources on grain-free low carb living. Approaching my third-year experience with low carbing I find the low carb community to be made up of strong advocates who openly share their resources and information in promoting a low carb lifestyle.

A forum isn’t much good without the people who make it-so please drop by and add a thought or resource here and there if you are of the sharing mindset.

Yep these kinds of blogs and forums are sprouting up everywhere!! Some clearly for monetary gain, and others for sharing of information.

Hypochlorhydria: 3 Common Signs of Low Stomach Acid — SCD Lifestyle

October 22, 2012 Leave a comment

After a couple of weeks of increasing indigestion and heartburn episodes, I came across this and was able to determine it was low stomach acid. It seems to be a current theme on FB Wheat Belly page. A day or 2 of Braggs ACV in my water-sipped all day and at meals  has more or less elimated it and my tummy (thank goodness) feels normal again.

Dr Briffa : Vitamin D found to promote fat loss and muscle gain in women | Dr Briffa’s Blog – A Good Look at Good Health

October 12, 2012 2 comments

Another example concerns the observation that individuals with low levels of vitamin D tend to be more prone to overweight and obesity. However, some have suggested that this might be because vitamin D tends to get sequestered (stored) in fat, removing it from the circulation and the more fat someone has, the more this tends to happen.

Studies that illuminate the role of vitamin D in health are those in which this substance is given to individuals to see what impact it has on them. Recently, a study was published in which vitamin D was given to a group of 77 overweight and obese women [1]. Half of the women were treated with 1,000 IU each day for 12 weeks, while the other half took a placebo. The vitamin D levels in the group taking this nutrients roughly doubled over the course of the study (an average of 38 nmol/l increasing to an average of 75 nmol/l) while the group taking placebo saw no significant increase.

Body weight was static over the course of the study in both groups, but the effects on body composition were not the same. Specifically, the group taking vitamin D ended up losing an average of 2.7 kg (6 lbs) of fat. At the same time, fat free mass (essentially, muscle) increased by an average of 1.8 kg. In those taking placebo, there was no significant change in fat mass or fat free mass.
