hey:)    I have a few questions about hormones.  I am female, 22 years old, with hormonal acne, that I somewhat manage, but it is HARD.  I have high cortisol (around 20% above the norm) and high testosterone (2.02 and the... (more)

I have been Paleo for about 3 months now. I started because I am very low on iron, borderline anemic. Over the past few years I have been seeing a hemotologist and he has not found out the reason why. I have had iron infusions but nothing helps.... (more)

As a community, do we do enough to surpport our local farm, especially those alternative farms that take a chance and produce real food...  Take a look at this Kikstarter for a small vermont grass fed butter producers... I am a backer...... (more)

I'm not sure gluten is the enemy though. There's really little (to none) literature out there looking at gluten in non-celiacs. And the recent follow-up from the same group pretty much obliterated gluten "sensitivity" as a thing. Now if you use... (more)

What would be the effects of eating 70-85% of your calories from fat in the form of coconut oil, 10-20% from protein in the form of various meats, and 5-10% from carbohydrate in the form of various fibrous vegetables?   I understand that... (more)

70% of your calories being completely void of nutrition? Does not sound like a good plan.

Like Jake mentioned above, where did you get the information? When you refer to eating additional carbs, are you talking about "cheat days" or something similar?

Don't let perfection be the enemy of good. And don't make yourself some social pariah because of an arbitrary diet.  Load up on veggies. Even sub-par veggies (with who knows what butter substitute) are fine. Eat meat, who cares if it's not... (more)

It seems that Vitamin C is extremely easy to get in almost every fruit and vegetable. Today I ate Strawberries, Brussel Sprouts, and Kale for a total of 4-500% RDA of Vitamin C. I feel like it is very easy to get copious amounts of Vitamin C from... (more)

The first 2-3 weeks on Paleo, people lose weight rapidly, but it's not fat that you lose. When you stop eating wheat and other starches, your body lets go of several pounds worth of water weight. I don't know how long you were out of commission... (more)

I don't like the way the website is now, a lot of functionality and posts have been lost and it is less intuitive to use. Please convert back to old version. If you agree, sign this petition by voting up (or down if you like the new one better).
