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.
I have Hashimoto's thyroiditis as well as severe fibromyalgia. I am under an endocrinologist's care and my thyroid condition seems to be under control. I'm also under the care of both a rheumatologist and a pain intervention specialist and I take... (more)
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)
Well I think they do. And I tested it. Stay tuned.......just got finished doing 8 weeks of a pretty sick bio-hack that called for lots of globe travel with lab testing. Find out why tomorrow on the blog why where you live may matter more than... (more)
Hi there I am a 28 yr old female with 43% body fat weighing in at 226. I have been doing paleo for about 2 months or so and have lost 5 lbs and deflated in the belly area a little bit as I like to call it but now my weight is not moving at all.... (more)
I have eaten a paleo diet for at least 6 months now. I am pretty sensitive to what causes inflammation in my body. I can tell by getting a stuffy nose. I find that I get stuffy from eating red meat, especially steak. Does anyone know why this may... (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.
I started eating a paleo type diet 2 years ago to help me with skin issues and most of my fat intake had always came from coconut. So my diet was very high in saturated fat and lower in PUFA, usually never more than 5 grams. The last couple weeks... (more)
Hi, my father constantly coughs, perhaps every 3 minutes all day. He has been to the doctors and had scans for cancer etc. After doing some research I believe it may be caused by acid reflux. My question is which paleo foods are best for... (more)
do you think jack hammering and digging and installing underground conduit, backfilling it and pulling in electrical wire to street lighting a good paleo workout? I do it almost every day.They guys I work with say I'm crazy that I put in 250 miles... (more)
Has anyone who lost wt slowly ever had (Chelation IV with EDTA in it which "grabs" the metal toxins)a Toxic Metal Urine Test where you do the IV and then collect your urine for 9 hrs and then send to a lab that should reveal the most common metal... (more)
Hello All - I am a newbie, and would really love to make this Paleo thing work for I have already started feeling better and am inspired. With that I struggle with beverages.... I love my morning coffee, and sadly with my flavored creamer..... (more)
I'm going to go back to simpler times for a bit, just meat, veg, and spice. No extra fat, no sauces, no dairy, no fruit (don't like it, anyway), no sweet potatoes or trying to fancy up food. Meat and vegetables with herbs or sugar-free spices. Who... (more)
Hi all, The chip is quite small but in a really obvious place. The oven door has two layers of glass and the chip is on the inside layer facing the heat source. I remember reading a while ago that there is a DIY windscreen repair kit that can be... (more)
Something I don't get in the paleo community is the fact that everyone wants to be extremely lean. I personally have been very lean my whole life, abs showing and all, but I have almost always felt miserable. The little time I have packed on some... (more)
Hi, Ive been eating mostly paleo (but not VLC ketogenic) for several months now and feel okay but have had recurrent upper respiratory tract infections since having sinus surgery 3 months ago. Needed 5 bouts of antibiotics and just recovering from... (more)
Rendering beef fat or pork fat yields tallow or lard and cracklings. Does anyone know what the structural difference between the crunchy cracklings and heated liquid fat is reflecting? Is it a more saturated situation? Are there going to be... (more)
Gosh what an adventure. Too late going Vegan a yr. ago. My voice had gotten wear, cutting in and out and finally gone! Too many years of Acid Reflux. Now am on a strict alkaline diet w Slippery Elm Bark to heal my throat. Let me know if u have... (more)
My daughter and I started eating a well balanced paleo plan August 2011 because of her unknown GI disorder and being hospitalized 73 times in 2010, I wanted to see if eating paleo would help keep her home more. Through multiple diagnostics, we... (more)
As a Christian, how do you explain your paleo beliefs? (If your not in the Paleo + still believe in God group, please don't respond.) I've ate paleo for over ten years. I believe in the science. That's not in question. My question has more to... (more)
Good question. I just don't throw the advice back to evolutionary underpinnings. I say about the same recommendations but base it on our recent agricultural healthy times pre-modern/industrial. "Eat like our great-grandparents ate!"
Been Paleo for about a year and for the last two months I have been having stomach problems. So I went to a Dr that is affiliated with Paleo Physicans Network. She took blood and ran some tests. Her diagnosis was that I was fully with poop. I was... (more)
