A lot of people coming to paleo were restricting their meat/fat consumption and really go to town on it for awhile. I was a veg head for so long that I felt amazing when I ate heavy protein at every meal. Well, years later I've gotten my fill and... (more)

Thanks for the topic!  I've also reintroduced meats after being a vegetarian, but still find myself gravitating to more veggie-heavy meals.  I really love all kinds of greens, roasted with butter or olive oil.  Sweet potato is... (more)

I bought some sweet potato chips that are  organic and gluten free. I am wondering if becasue they have stone ground corn in them if they would be considered a paleo snack.

The act of putting the words "organic" and "gluten free" on the bag automatically makes them a processed food and therefore forbidden for True Paleos to eat. Beyond that you could do better for food choices.

When it comes to IGF-1 the lower the better, if you are mainly focused on health. Low IGF-1 levels promote longevity by inhibiting ageing and inhibiting cancer growth.

generally, I don't think barefoot running is as good as it's made out to be.  Our bodies evolved to walk.  It was not until we started to develop footware did we become runners.  Yes, there are a few tribes, like the Tarahumara... (more)

It occurred to me tonight that the reason high carb diets tend work may be because it allows the body to synthesize the right fats. Pure and simple... If you have good gut flora and a healthy metabolism and good insulin response, your body/flora... (more)

Our bodies only synthesize things they *need*, otherwise it's a waste of energy. There are things we need but cannot synthesize.  So in terms of fats… we need omega-3 and omega-6 long chain fats, we cannot synthesize these,... (more)

Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard.  Not paleo, but it's good stuff by a good company, and not absurdly priced

I am fully Paleo and I avoid processed and junk food as much as I can. I don't particularly miss any junk/processed food... except Tang that is. I feel nostalgic about it. Don't you think the rare Tang (say, once or twice a year) treat is that bad... (more)

Stressing out about drinking Tang a few time a year is likely worse for you then just enjoying it a few time a year. Just my two cents.

Just add almond meal until you get to your desired consistency. I don't have a recipe for meatloaf, as what I put in in changes each time.  1 pound ground beef, 1 egg, black pepper, tomato paste, fish sauce… mix and then add almond... (more)

is my math off or are you saying you run 8 km (~5 miles) in 2 hours? that's walking pace.  It's good to take a daily walk, but that's just having an active lifestyle.  Then your work out to get up to ~12 mins/mile pace at the... (more)

I can't have coffee out any more unless I carry along my own coconut milk.  I used to love to treat myself to a cup of coffee every once in a while--cheap fun and always tastes better than my coffee at home.
