hello! My gf has recently switched to primal eating- YAY! All has been going very well, but for the past two weeks, after prolonged walks in the sun ( 2 hours plus) she's gotten sunburn blisters on her chest, something she's never had before, even... (more)
My best guess answer would be zinc deficiency.
I suppose the title isn't that clear, so I'll try to word the question a bit better: I take a 2 hour walk every day, at a reasonable pace (around 3 mph) and in the middle, I tend to get something fructose-y, around 30 grams carbs. My question... (more)
Hey, I am a 5'5", 18 yr old girl around 135 lbs or so (approx no scale) who's been on the Paleo Diet since Lent. My q is I was wondering if I am not eating dairy, grains, legumes, refined sugar products, processed food, and NOW (since I've heard... (more)

Just wondering if anyone has gone a day or two eating just coconut oil and water? What effects could it have on your body/metabolism? Would it be worth a try to kick-start fat burning? While we are on the topic, what do any of you think about... (more)
I set out once to do an entire week on coconut oil...I ended up feeling nauseous constantly, and even vomited...I ended up doing several days...this was back when I had a very punishing attitude towards my body, I love intermittent fasting now,... (more)
So someone's question partially asked this but I figured I'd fully ask about it... Do you think a moderate protein, moderate fat, moderate carb diet could work once you become leptin sensitive? If you are an active crossfitter and work on your... (more)
All you can do is try it. Finding your perfect macro ratio is key to pushing through a plateau for me. I would say that this is what I do, but I also calorie count.
So I posted a question yesterday about how I am still stuck on my plateau and how part of my eating regimen is a fast from the night of one day to the afternoon of the next and what I started to think while I ate during my eating hours is that... (more)
I have a vitamin D deficiency, and went on vacation to the beach, and after that I immediately went to France (great meat there, and great eggs :D). The weather wasn't that bad, but as soon as there was a lot of sun I immediately went outside and... (more)

Hi I've been on the Paleo diet now for 6 weeks. Strictly adhered to its rules for the first four weeks but have recently added small amounts of rice due to a problem I was experiencing - my legs burn going up just a few flights of stairs, my arms... (more)
Hi I've been doing pale for 2 months and recently removed heavy cream from my diet due to a weight loss stall. I'm not eating any other forms of dairy except for the occasional pastured butter. As a consequence my relatively high fat intake has... (more)
I am more interested in why current heart burn medication which reduces stomach acid takes away the pain associated with heart burn. So what exactly does it do, does it block the pain, or just send the body different signals? Assuming the... (more)
I just burned my hand with some smoking hot coconut oil while not being careful while cooking. I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations that might help with the healing process or pain.
