I've been paleo for several weeks, and LOVE that all my ice cream/ cookie/ pie etc cravings are gone. I am on the VLC version for now as I have some business clothes I've got to get back into for an upcoming conference. The weight is just falling... (more)
So I??ve been reading a lot about how good sauerkraut is and I have even started making my own. Now the good thing is I really like it... but my question is, can you eat too much of it, so that it would end up having a negative effect instead? How... (more)
Kind of a left wing question, and I will probably get a mixed response for this. I believe that your body will use whatever it's given for fuel, and will store whatever is less desirable when you eat from all 3 macros at once. That being said, if... (more)
Hey everyone, After being treated for may years for a combination of arthritis, Chronic Fatigue and/or fibromyalgia and none of those treatment helping even a little (all sorts of SSRIs and pain killers that did nothing) and trying yoga and... (more)
I had two close, long time friends who have been vegan for years visit me yesterday. Both are intelligent and one is in the fitness field. They both tried to explain to me the unhealthiness of animal fat as well as the impossibility of being able... (more)

Per Julia Ross's book The Diet Cure, I started taking 200 mcg Chromium Picolinate with every meal. I have hypoglycemia but haven't noticed much of a difference. And, I read a few internet sites that suggest it's dangerous. Anyone know anything... (more)
We had a great "top five paleo grocery staples" question a few months back. Recently, I've had to add a few supplements into my regiment to offset a possible copper toxicity. It got me wondering about what else I could be lacking (or... (more)

Do you wait until you fall of accidentally? Do you plan to fall-off on certain days? Do you fall-off for just one meal? Do you just not fall-off? I would prefer to never fall off; that is my preferred answer. But that sets one up for falling... (more)

A few weeks ago, I started eating primal. I've noticed that my clothes are fitting much more loosely (WAY more than I would have believed could happen in a few weeks). The scale says I haven't lost any weight, so I'm ruling out the typical... (more)
