My unscientific observation is that people who have little weight to lose (under 20 or 30 lbs) don't see a lot of weight loss on paleo/low carb, at least not in the short term. I think that's because of a "set point"--your body may be happy where... (more)

Hi, I am just coming back to a more strict paleo diet after about 4 months off. On these months off I had rice, potato, bread etc maybe 4 times a week. I also upped my dairy intake, drank diet sodas and wine. I gained 4 or so pounds... (more)

Don't forget the other things that help target "low carb flu"--make sure you're getting good levels of sodium (bone broth with salt is a great way) and potassium (avocados have plenty), and drink plenty of fluids. The bone broth is great for... (more)

I know there are similar questions, but none answered it for me. As I've gone stricter paleo / primal, I've basically been eating meat and fish, veggies, and good fats, including dairy fats and nuts. Any sugars beyond what's in the aforementioned... (more)

Youre not in ketosis--what youre feeling is starvation. You're not getting enough calories and your body is so hungry it causes you to feel sick. Ketosis is a good, healthy feeling with no cravings and a lighter feeling in your head. Get more good... (more)

As said, Paleo is not necessarily low carb. If you want to be "strictly" Paleo, there's still plenty of carbs in starchy veggies and fruits. You can limit those in your own diet to reduce the carbs to lose weight, but don't skimp on the kids'... (more)

Eat when hungry, don't force it. Also, the only thing you need to track in a low-carb gig is protein. You have body fat and dietary fat is really easy to eat massive amounts of. Carbs are taken care of just by not eating starches, you won't... (more)

I looked around the site and couldn't find the specifics of what's actually going on when someone feels crappy transitioning from SAD to a real food diet. Is it sugar withdrawal symptoms, burning more fat and less carbs for energy, microorganism... (more)

Hey! So I'm not looking for an instant solution, and I understand you feel crappy and sluggish, but one thing I have not heard a single person talk about is upset stomach and cramps. I started paleo about 7 days ago and for the last couple of... (more)
