I've never bought nor eaten cassava/yucca before, but due to its low cost, and calorie+nutrient density, I'm thinking of making it my main starch source, along with bananas and plantains. I've been trying to get away from white potatoes as they... (more)
I'm currently on a LeanGains clean bulk, which calls for well over 400g of carbs on workout days, low fat. Eating that much carbs on paleo/primal is a challenge for me. I rely on sweet potatoes, and have white rice occasionally. I've tried... (more)

You've gone the distance and have committed to eating clean because it makes you feel better but then you are questioning your body's hunger. If you are hungrier and you are eating whole foods then listen to your body and eat more. It's likely you... (more)
It's a starch that comes from the cassava root, so it is technically "paleo," though it's awfully processed. It's one of those foods that isn't blatantly poisonous but definitely isn't optimal as a dietary staple, and as I recall the root itself... (more)
