Finally Clear: Treating Insulin Resistance With Paleo, Cinnamon, And Minerals (With Progress Pictures)

34 posts in this topic

Thank you for your advice, Sleptemper. I am currently taking zinc + cinammon (quarter of a spoun x3). Cinammon is awesome, I have been doing a research online and besides lowering sugar, it has antiinflamatory properties.

Are you still acne - free without the supplementation you took before? I mean, without magnesium, zinc and chromium.

Update:

This weekend I decided to reintroduce a food that I'd cut out of my diet a few months ago: organic peanut butter. This is very good quality peanut butter made by a local sustainable farming operation; the only ingredients in it are organic peanuts, salt, and emulsifier (whatever that is). Since Sunday I've been eating about a tablespoon of peanut butter with fruits and cinnamon.

All seemed well until today; I've broken out - four tiny, very painful bumps clustered on my right jaw. The rest of my face is still clear. I don't know if it's the peanuts, salt, or mysterious emulsifier that are responsible for this, but I will not be eating this peanut butter again. Which is a shame because it's extremely tasty.

Emulsifier is a food additive used to not allow the oil to separate. If you had straight peanut butter nothing else the oil would separate and be on top.

Peanuts give a lot of people problems though. They are very inflammatory, tons of omega 6, high lectins, whole bunch of other stuff. Which is too bad because they are absolutely delicious lol. I still eat PB here and there but I only ever eat PB that is straight peanuts.

I realize it's been a while since this thread's been posted in, but I just came across it, and I thought you should be aware that cassia cinnamon contains a liver toxin called coumarin. It could be a problem with the amounts you have been taking (or were taking when you posted this thread).

i though a maximum of 3-4 gram a day is alright?

could u elaborate a lil' more on the fact.

Paleo isn't paleo.

To think todays foods are anything like they were in the so called cavemen days is short sighted.

Thousands of years of agriculture has changed the food we eat.

Therefore when a company promotes an overly restrictive paleo diet, it's not "paleo"
