Note: The episodes are now available in iTunes as well and we’ll work on other feed services soon! Until then, the RSS feed link is available from the Blog Talk Radio page here. We’re using the “Notes” after each question to link to any relevant/additional information or items we mention in our responses on the podcast and say we’ll link to, but those are not anywhere near the extent of the answers we’re supplying… just so you’re clear on that!
#1 Natural, non-toxic beauty products.
Amber asks: ”This isn’t food related, per se, but it’s “clean living” related. So here goes. I’m trying to get all the toxins out of my beauty products and switch over to more natural products. I’ve already started using “deodorant” made from coconut oil, baking soda and arrowroot and it’s working fantastically without putting aluminum in my pits (yay). So I have a couple questions about other beauty products:
1 – hair color. Is it ever safe? Is there a certain brand I should ask for or should I just kick this habit
2 – can you recommend a paraben/toxin free shampoo & conditioner I should try?
3 – I don’t think I will ever stop wearing mascara. Is there a brand that is more “natural” than the others?
4 – face wash? The only products I use that don’t break me out or dry me out are filled with really bad stuff (mineral oil, parabens, very chemical laden) – what should I do here?
#2: Paleo vs Low Carb
John asks: “I would like you to maybe explain in a few words for your listeners how Paleo/Primal eating lifestyle is different from a low-carb eating lifestyle. It looks to me that people always seem to be comparing both styles of “dieting”. Thank you both and I look forward to hearing “Thelma and Loise” soon! Thanks! John T.
P.S.: A video recording of a show (when you are both together in person) would be really cool and a lot of fun!”
#3: Crazy sugar cravings.
Susan asks: ”I’ve been “doing Paleo” for about 8 weeks or so. And I have been eating pretty healthy for several years before that (biggest change since going Paleo was kicking the oats and a little bit of dairy), and I’m quite active athletically. But I still get occasional crazy sugar cravings, which I…ahem… occasionally give in to. Like crazy! Do you have any tips for kicking those dang sugar cravings once and for all?! What is happening chemically when one experiences such cravings?”
#4: Adding foods back to an AI paleo diet protocol?
Lindy asks: Hi! Thanks for starting a podcast – I love your blog! I am currently on an autoimmune paleo diet for ankylosing spondylitis (spinal rheumatoid arthritis). By ditching egg whites, nuts, nightshades, starch, dairy, and fruit, I have stopped using the heavy meds like Humira, NSAIDs, and high doses of Prednisone. The only thing I’m currently taking is Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN).
Despite this success for 2 months, I’m not even able to add winter/summer squash or sweet potatoes back into my diet. I’m losing so much weight that my coworkers are disturbed. I’m eating TONS of meat, avocado, coconut milk, olive oil, and as many non-starchy veggies as I can. What can I do to increase my weight on this diet, and from your experience, will I ever be able to add things back into my diet?”
#5: Paleo nutrition education and putting it into practice.
Ian asks: ”Hello Ladies, and congrats on the new podcast! Question: What suggestions could you make for someone wanting to get into Paleo/Primal/WAP nutrition as a career? What path education-wise would you suggest? Nutrition Therapy Association? RD? I’d like 2 answers if you can, one from the perspective of starting off from scratch, and one from the perspective of already being a health professional.
My background: In my case, I’m an RN working on my NP. However, I would really like to incorporate Paleo in to my care, and ultimately open up a private practice specializing in “Diabesity”. Thanks, Ian aka “The Japsican”
