Hi Sarah,
I really loved your post about how to know how many carbs you need. It was very helpful and I feel fairly secure in my carb intake now. But I’m wondering about fats and proteins. Most paleo websites (yours included) reccomend a range of protein you might want, but it’s hard to know if I’m getting a good amount. Could you do a post about things you might notice in your body if you have too much/too little protein, and the same with fats?
Thanks,
Becky

I want to talk with you about speaking to our group near Gettysburg. Just sent you an email but see that you are at an extreme back log. Can you reply directly from here? I would really love to have you at our spring event!

Hi. I’ve made my own coconut milk, which is delicious, and was wondering if milk kefir grains will continue to grow if used only to make coconut milk kefir.

Hi.

Am looking to buy a bread machine. Are there any you recommend that work well with your Paleo bread recipes? I’ve never owned one and there are so many choose from, it’s overwhelming.

Thanks.

Sarah,
I just wanted to let you know that you have inspired me to go back to school! I am currently teaching Foods and Nutrition 1 and 2 at the high school level, but I have always had a smoldering desire to become a registered dietician. It was actually my major at one point in my college career (about 5 minutes), but then I walked into the first chemistry class. I bolted…..changed majors……and have wanted to try it again for many years since. Over the years I have kept up with nutrition research, so when I had a reaction to something I couldn’t figure out, I decided Paleo might be the way to go. That was two years ago, and I haven’t regretted it for one minute! Eventually I found you, and I was immediately in love!!! I have always, always loved the science behind food and nutrition, and you do the best job of putting it all together in a “digestible” form. (Pun intended of course!)
Anyway, now I am enrolling in classes with the goal of graduating in a couple of years as a Registered Dietician. Once I have the credentials, I want to work within the Paleo community.
Thanks again for the inspiration!!!
Love,
Catherine

My 6 month old son is exclusively breastfed and has had eczema since 3 months old. In the past three months, I’ve eliminated dairy, gluten, soy, corn, shellfish, fish, nightshades (most recently, but probably only 90% there), peanuts, nuts (except for almonds) and have limited legumes. I’m unclear if coconut oil / milk is ok and if chia seeds and hemp seeds are ok. There are certain days when I think his eczema is improving, but then it comes back with a vengeance. Is there a plan or article that Sarah has written for breastfeeding moms for babies with AI issues or leaky gut? Thanks so much.

I found a wonderful guy at our local farmer’s market today (I live in South Florida) that sells his local raw honey and also natural no-sugar-added jellies and jams made by the Amish in North Carolina. The honey is the best I have ever tasted- they’re feeding right now on orange blossoms apparently. Anyway, he has a web site and I just wanted to mention it to you. :) http://jamjellyhoneyhouse.com/

I’ve read a lot of reviews on The Paleo Approach book for autoimmune disease which have all been amazing. However, it talks about all these different autoimmune diseases that it helps but doesn’t ever mention rhumatoid arthritis which I have. Would this fall under the category for one of the autoimmune diseases your book may help? I know food does affect me A LOT!

The book helps every autoimmune disease and has a complete list of them in the introductory chapters. It does not discuss every autoimmune disease individually. – Christina, Sarah’s assistant

Hello, my 7 year old has been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease and is receiving extensive medical treatment. I am thinking about putting her on the auto immune paleo diet. I feel like it is very restrictive, and I understand why, but would like your opinion: do you think it is appropriate for a child?

Thank you for your quick response! One more question. Do you recommend the auto immune paleo as a life long diet plan?

The AIP is meant to be a short-term elimination diet, after which you reintroduce foods to see how you tolerate them, but it certainly can be followed as long as necessary to maintain optimal health. Many people do follow it for years. – Christina, Sarah’s assistant

Hello Sarah & Team,

I was after some advice as I’ve hit a wall on how to interpret what I believe to be one of the causes of my acne, which I’ve had for 15 years+.

It appears to get aggravated by foods with a high glycemic load and liquids with a high sugar content (ie alcohol). Are you able to explain how these foods are causing my skin reactions in terms of their influence on the body? Apart from avoiding these foods, is there a way I can speed up the healing process or take a test to find out more? Any advice would be gratefully received.

All the best,
Becci

Can you give me any feedback as far as Ultra InflamX360? Dr. prescribed it for detox, I took for about 2 weeks and my eyes dried completely out – could not feel drops when I put them in and my ears are screaming. I stopped for 4 days and tried again, same results.
Is this part of the detox or is it a reaction to ingredients?

Sarah, you’re educational knowledge touched with nerdism ( which for me isn’t, but I get it!) and promoting how to adapt and finetune, hits a homerun for me. Your audio interview @ the Hashimoto’s Institute presentation, was just THE BEST, for me! Thank you for sharing soooo much nuance and information, so helpful!
