How many of you use salt during your 30 day challenge? I read some saying only sea salt while a few people say eliminate it all together. I'm aware that alot of the food eating on Paleo is not processed thus there's is a definite lack of salt.... (more)

I felt like Texas Roadhouse was one of the more enjoyable restaurant experiences I've had since going gluten free/paleo. I ordered a grilled steak, a baked potato and another baked sweet potato. The waitress was attentive when I explained my dairy... (more)

Hey All, Well....I WAS on day 2 of my 30 day Paleo Diet and decided to go for a smoothie and went to Smoothie King (I don't usually go to Smoothie King but I thought it would be ok.) I asked the girl if it was just frozen fruit with no sugar... (more)

Smoothies are not "strict-paleo" due to the fact you're drinking your calories and consuming a lot of sugar in one go. If you are REALLY want a smoothie, I would suggest making one at home using coconut milk or avocado as a fat source with a... (more)

I'm on day 24 of the Whole 30. I've been having trouble pooping. My stools are not hard but it feels like everything is all stuck inside my gut and I can feel I need to poop but nothing wants to move. Feels like it's sludge inside :( When I pass... (more)

Wheat bran. Don't listen to the paleo propaganda, it won't tear your gut lining. Also, the critters in your gut will make butyric acid out of it, which is very cool. Also, the phytic acid is bound to the minerals already found in the wheat bran,... (more)

Not sure what you did to yourself, I truly hope you didn't just eat an entire pineapple or entire yam (type amounts) after being Keto for 30+ days. That's rough. Generally you want to add 10-15g of carb per day (cumulative) until you break... (more)

I don't think I could, but I'm curious if anyone has given Vegetarianism the same energy, focus and intention that they've given Paleo? I live in India and it seems the vegetarians are the most unhealthy people I know (just what I've noticed... (more)

So, I "rewarded" myself this weekend. I was out for a meal and I had an ice cream sundae and then I had a cadburys creme egg yesterday. Fine, I've lost 7lbs since I started and I've felt fantastic. It took me a couple of weeks to rid myself of... (more)

Add a couple of snacks during the day; the Whole30 Success guide recommends that in addition to your meals. Make sure to include some fat, protein and carb into each snack, especially for the kids. Definitely more fat as well. Good luck! I'm... (more)

Been doing pretty well on the 30 day challenge, charting everything I eat. Have had NO grains, hardly any dairy, which has been minimal cheese. I am a very fit guy and carry alot of muscle. Should I just be more patient?? Help

I'm curious why most people do a 30 day challenge? Is it because you are off paleo/primal and trying to get back on track (or just starting?) Or is there a reason, while being paleo/primal, that one does the challenge (ie: weight plateaus?). (more)

I did it to start to see if this was a feasible way to eat and if I felt better. Now I am considering it for two reasons. The first is to test an exclusion like BaconBitch said. If the original taught me anything it is that I don't know how I... (more)

I have dropped only 6.5 lb in under 30 days. At first, I was eating too many carbs. As of this past week I have lowered my carbs but I just messed up yesterday because I had about 3/4c broccoli. I forgot to check its carb count! What did you do... (more)

I don't remember the exact number, but I do know it was slow moving. But it was moving: maybe a pound or two every week. What I noticed even more so than the number on the scale moving was that my body composition began to change. I kept... (more)
