I have read many of the related threads and am quite confused. I am 5'4", 150 pounds, spent 15 years as (health food) vegetarian (I know, gasp, started eating meat a year ago), had three pregnancies, and I am still nursing. I have been on paleo... (more)
During nursing, the body needs to consume at minimum 300+ calories per day just to maintain. If you are not eating enough, your body will do its best to limit fat loss for survival. If you experiment with upping your food amount, you might feel... (more)
I recently started a Paleo diet as a transition into the Paleo lifestyle of eating for better health as recommended by my doctor. I do see the benifits of eating this way and so far, after 3 weeks on the diet, I feel great. My goal is not only to... (more)
My absolute dream would be to own and operate a self-sustainable goth and paleo bed and breakfast inn, in the glorious forests of Missouri. Do you know of any self-proclaimed paleo bed and breakfasts, in the U.S.?

To start, I am a senior in university and never had a very healthy diet. I recently just got out of an unhealthy relationship (in more ways than one) and I think it's time to redo myself. My biggest concern is to be honest, the whining. No... (more)
Your goal should be to improve your diet. Best thing you can do is to try and cook most of your own meals and avoid processed foods and fast foods as best you can. If you can eliminate refined sugar, flour, and vegetable oil from your diet... (more)

I've been doing paleo since January 2013 and absolutely love it, but am still new to it. In Feb 2013 I started doing Crossfit. I'm trying to get to a healthy weight, so I've been following the guideline to keep Carb intake at max 75g. My question... (more)
Hi there, I have been eating paleo for over a year. Many of the recipes call for salt. What is your take after this new study? http://my.chicagotribune.com/#section/-1/article/p2p-74696263/ Thanks, Richard (more)
Hello I'm trying to get an idea of what 100g of carbs via veggies and fruit looks like. I've more or less cut grains out completely but before I started learning more about paleo living I really stepped up the fruit and veg intake (about 10... (more)
3-4 apples or 200 oz. of broccoli. If it's green then it'll be a ton! If it's a fruit then it will be much less. 3-4 cups of berries, 4-5 pears, etc. just mix and match until you have what will keep you full.

Hi, I've followed paleo for about 18 months now. I started because I wanted to lean out... and it worked. I started out at about 100kg (and pretty tubby around my stomach) and I got down to 82kg (with really aesthetically pleasing body... (more)
To continue leaning out and to also up your carbs you'll probably want to drop your total fat intake. Simply, replace some of your fat calories with carb calories and give that a shot. Works for me.
Maybe a bit silly of a question, but im starting to become alot more strict on my paleo diet again (go me!), so im just wondering how much Salt do you put on your food and how much Pepper? Ive just gotten some Himalayan Salt but not sure how much... (more)

I've heard and read so much about the use of statins and healthy people with high cholesterol, but I can't seem to find anything about the positive effect statins have on people (especially women) who have already suffered a heart attack. Do... (more)
"High cholesterol" is a disease that only exists in a doctor's office. It's the only disease that requires you to have a doctor. Statins cause diabetes and psychological+hormonal issues.
