I ask this because I have yet to meet a single cavemen or cave girl in person. I live in Florida by the way. Most of my friends truly know less than nothing about nutrition, and could care less as long as they aren't fat.
There's a tendency in the Paleo community to treat unlimited saturated fat consumption as not only benign, but healthful. While there are some of us that can consume an avalanche of saturated fat at every meal and see no change in our cholesterol... (more)
In general, I'm not the best sleeper. I typically have to wear earplugs and take a little melatonin to be able to sleep. However, the week prior to my period I suffer insomnia (and I'm the kind of person who suffers tremendously with just 1 night... (more)
I have never liked sauerkraut, you know that usual garbage that is heated to death that you can buy in supermarkets. A month ago I bought some raw sauerkraut and was amazed at the taste and liked how it made my upset gut (stomach bug) feel. I've... (more)
Hi fellow paleo peeps, Here my question: I tolerate goats milk fine and other cow products such cheese,butter,cream. However i drank cows milk gold top unhomogenized but it rumbles my stomach a bit and my acne has come back again. I don't... (more)
I struggled with debilitating digestive issues during high school (im in college now) and I understand what its like to not have your digestive system working to its fullest. Its more than just feeling uncomfortable being constipated, its about... (more)
I think it's also helpful to try an elimination diet for FODMAPs. And supplementing with magnesium and betaine HCL - doesn't work for everyone but really helps me.
More than anything else I hate its emphasis on weight loss. Every question involves some aspect of weight loss, as though losing weight = becoming healthy. I would happily trade all my health woes for being overweight, at least then I could do... (more)
Main Question: Anyone switch from grain to grass-fed meat and notice big health benefits? Why I am asking: Been "paleo" for going on 3 years, finally can afford it and considering the switch. Will cost another 2000+/year for my situation (I've... (more)
honestly? no, not at all! the ethical arguments hold sway for me, but the health benefits are definitely what i'd consider marginal. i eat seafood, i'm not dying for the omegas. the CLA is nice, in theory, but practical difference? none.
I had a hidascan and it showed I had a hyperactive gallbladder with a very high ejection fraction. I am recovering from celiac disease and eating a very strict paleo diet. I mostly use grass-fed tallow to add fat to meals. Is there anything I can... (more)
hello there. so, i was out at the supermarket the other day and came across some plantains on offer. i've never really considered them before, so i thought why not? and bought a few. i made some oven baked tostones (didn't like the idea of... (more)
Hi, I've just made the switch from big pot to crockpot for stews and broths and I'm just not clear on this. It doesn't seem like the amount of liquid I add initially gets reduced at all, because it's below the simmer point. Is that how it's... (more)
I know there's phytic acid in coffee beans, but is there enough to worry about in brewed coffee? Doesn't the roasting/hot brewing inactivate any of it? I drink a cup every morning along with my breakfast of meat and vegetables and all my... (more)

Last night became a cheat night... not a BAD one, but bad enough. Rice, and Caesar salad (was with my boyfriend's family), and a beer and a half. 1) Should I IF today? I usually IF from 2 or 4 in the afternoon to 8am the next day. Last night I... (more)
Hey there, new here and so first of all, HI - thx for your great informations :) I read alot, so never had any question couse most is well answered here already. I am paleo maybe 5 or 6 weeks now. I dont expect wonders in that time, but already... (more)
Does this happen to anyone else? I feel like a zombie sometimes! I can't sit. I'll start slouching and eventually I'm completely zoning out of what I'm reading. Some of the thoughts that go into my head are "I just don't care about what I have... (more)
I'm 24 YO female, I had been Paleo (to address my PCOS) for about 2 months and then fell off the wagon a couple of days back. Not that I'm craving my non-Paleo delicacies but that Paleo gave me an immense case of constipation and a bad acidity. I... (more)
