I am new to Chris Kresser. Can anyone tell me their educated thoughts about the Alcat Test? I’ve just received my results and it’s daunting. I’m severely allergic to standard foods I consume every day. Reviews seem mixed at best. Thank you,
I already do not eat gluten, dairy, and eggs due to food sensitivities and this January I weighed 135.4 at 5′-1.5″ and I decided to jump start the new year and my metabolism by being more strict and avoided all added sugar (which I rarely ate before but due to the holidays I slipped a bit). Also, I was eating more brown rice and sweet potatoes than normal so I wanted to avoid grains and starchy vegetables. I also monitored my snacking at night and to help me with with cravings and to curb hunger, I was taking PGX supplement before meals. By day 16, I was down 6.6 pounds. I got down to 7.4 pounds down by day 22 (128 pounds). I then had a 1-1.5 pound increase and continued to plateau until Day 37.
We all have autoimmune issues with our skin and digestive tracts, so being flexible with the paleo diet really isn’t an option, unless we all want to be sick. We eat rice daily and dairy and corn on occasion, but we stick to a very strict no wheat policy and no nightshades. The kids are too young to understand that they can’t eat certain things, so things like birthday parties and celebrations at their daycare haven’t really been an option. As they get older, we’ll tell them that certain foods are going to cause a reaction in them and leave it up to them to decide, but we won’t have those foods in the house. We also don’t eat out at restaurants at all. It’s incredibly difficult not having the luxury of just ordering pizza on nights when I’m exhausted, but we feel so much better having gluten-free pizza that we make ourselves once every couple of months and it becomes a celebration for us.

Hi, For those of you who are struggling to lose weight on Paleo, I just wanted to share my experience – I know everyone is different but I have had a lot of success with my plan and hopefully it can help you.
Speak with you: The Ornish diet is to help patients who have severely calcified aortic arteries and heart disease avoid bypass surgery by changing their diet to a no fat diet. Atkins diet is meat/ vegetable based and no carbs. For minor heart defect, you’re better off speaking to your doctor or cardiologist about which diet may be better. You can always get a second opinion from an integrative medicine doctor too …Read more
As funny as it sounds, sleep deprivation may make you fat — and not just because you’re susceptible to cases of the late-night munchies (although there’s that too). There’s tons of research that demonstrates getting less than the desired amount — about 7 hours — of sleep per night can slow down your metabolism. Plus, when you’re awake for longer, you’re naturally more likely to nosh. So don’t skimp on your ZZZs, and you’ll be rewarded with an extra edge when it comes to shedding pounds quickly.
Roasted Butternut Squash Soup – Start your meal off right with this soup that provides a full serving of vegetables. Soup from a can may be convenient, but let’s face it, it often doesn’t live up to the taste expectation, and it’s loaded with sodium and preservatives. Also it was likely made quite some time ago and has been sitting in a metallic can this whole time. Go fresh and experience the difference.
I immediately started searching on Google and managed to find the official 3 Week Diet website. There, I watched a video by a professional nutritionist who revealed step-by-step what was needed to lose weight quickly. I was shocked, because no one had ever told me this information before! I had visited personal trainers, dietitians and doctors, and in all these years, no one had ever told me these dieting secrets!
Now that you’re 124 (I’m presuming), it takes a lot less calories for you to maintain your weight. I did a calculation and for a woman your age and weight, it takes 1700 calories per to maintain your current weight. Despite this foolishness about not needing to count calories on paleo, you need to cut your calories in order to lose that weight. Not counting calories only works for someone who’s really overweight and that’s only because going paleo automatically puts them in a caloric deficit.
Lonely or bored – reach out to others instead of reaching for the refrigerator. Call a friend who makes you laugh, take your dog for a walk, or go to the library, mall, or park—anywhere there’s people.
Eating vegetarian meals more often is a slimming habit. Vegetarians tend to weigh less than meat eaters. While there are several reasons for this, legumes may play an important role. Bean burgers, lentil soup, and other tasty legume-based foods are simply packed with fiber. Most Americans get only half of this important nutrient, which fills you up with fewer calories.
The Highs: All my blood tests show I am 100 pre cent healthy. I broke down crying in Petronella’s office and I think part of it was down to the confirmation that I am not crazy: I knew something was wrong with my ballooning weight and her slip of paper was the proof.
