Dried fruit really got me through before I adjusted. , When I first gave up grains, dried fruit were what got me through. I don't need them much any more though. It must be the insulin sensitivity - I just had a blood test done and found out I... (more)

hi, i'm from Malaysia and started going paleo. However, the problem is, i can't find any grass-fed cows' fat, bones, organs. The only grass-fed beef here is lean meat, no fats whatsoever. This is because the meat is imported, so i guess they only... (more)

As per many of the other recommendations, doing some HIIT and sprinting once or twice per week will help shed the fat without you loosing your butt. As to the arms, just keep the reps high and your muscles will tone but not grow much if any. ... (more)

PUFA's are bad, for the most part. Avocados contain a bit of this. Not a lot, but it's significant. Add to this the fact that my avocados sit on the warm counter for days if not a week or more during the summer, and you've likely got some... (more)

Given your activity level, or lack thereof, three decent sized meals, plus snacking on nuts and sweet potato chips, with fruit is a lot of total calories. I am sure your body is still doing better with lots of good food instead of lots of bad... (more)

Going out on a (pretty safe) limb here, but you're eating too low carb. Eat a potato (sweet or not) or two.
