I've been on a weight loss journey for several years now. It seems that no matter what I do, my body likes to hover around 162-165. 162 is the lowest I have ever had as an adult since starting the journey, and most of the time I'm 165. It seems no... (more)
Do you eat the same foods or macro ratios every day, or change things around? And how often? In terms of overall food intake (by calories, if you like) I think it's good to vary your intake, some days eating more to boost metabolism, some days... (more)
I think one of the hardest things to deal with I'm currently battling is the idea that I can't ever have a hamburger with bun again. I mean, I know I can, but as soon as I do, I'll surely get incredibly sick from the bun. Now, I know the proper... (more)
I'm just curious if anyone has noticed a big change in how this forum is used or the types of answers over the years? This first popped into my mind when I found Bulletproof blah blah everywhere and started thinking about how this site was before... (more)
When I made the (abrupt) switchover from (organic) SAD to Paleo, I suffered from constipation, something that continued appearing from time to time. What I have learnt is that, for me at least, the most important factor is my gut bacteria. Since... (more)
So I started the Paleo lifestyle about 3 weeks ago. I eat only meat/fish/eggs, non-starchy veggies, and nuts/avocado, with the occasional piece of 90% dark chocolate. I eat about 60-80 grams of carbs a day, 1200-1400 calories, and I exercise... (more)
Expeller-pressed coconut oil is healthier and, at least on the international commodities market, cheaper than canola oil. So why don't more restaurants use it as their cooking oil of choice, particularly as its reputation for being a healthy oil... (more)
This link struck me as to just how far gone the standard american diet is: http://www.buzzfeed.com/mattbellassai/45-people-you-wont-believe-actually-exist-6z51?sub=1869460_694499 Its amazing how many of these are food related, from the paleo... (more)
Keep your culture in America and not contaminate the rest of the world? You have to come from somewhere else to appreciate how much America smells of Cinnabon. It's gone too far, you'll never rescue it.
I began paleo 2 years ago, and can't say enough how much it's positively impacted my life. However, I've always seemed to do well with a high-fat, high redmeat/eggs and very, very low carbs. I couldn't handle sweet potatoes or even fruit just... (more)
When i started paleo about 18 months ago, i too was very low carb, lots of red meat and eggs, and i felt great and my body transformed for the better (with help from exercise). However, there were times when i just couldn't stomach the meat for a... (more)
Without watching this movie, I suspect it's mostly proving their point, but not actually suggesting what we need to do. So, to anyone who's seen it, what are the bullet points for what the movie says that I DO in order to heal my brain. Is there... (more)
I'm looking to go Paleo/Primal in the next few weeks. I've been doing a lot of research but I'm worried I'm going to find it really really hard as I have a far from perfect diet at the moment and I can be quite a fussy eater. Just wondering what... (more)
Stop reading and just do it. Make adjustments along on the way, there's no need to be perfect as long as you are better off than yesterday. Rice and sugar coated corn flakes. But looking back i don't care for them. The food i eat now tastes way... (more)
What arguments have you heard that changed your mind and led to a shift in your attitudes/behaviors about a dietary/fitness/medical paradigm that you have been following? What convinced you? Ex. Reading Paul Jaminet's Perfect Health Diet and... (more)
It feels like there have been lots of folks focusing on weight loss and such... but I feel like there is so much more. What other great things have you noticed or changes have you made since going Paleo/Primal? Physical or not? Me personally?... (more)
Have you ever managed to get a food place to switch from margerine to butter, cage to pastured eggs etc? My local cafe is pretty trendy, they use fancy sourdough, redonkulous espresso, lots of handmade goodies, but there is a big tub of meadowlea... (more)
Seriously, the worst they can say is no. Be very friendly and casually say "heyyy... any chance you may offer butter as an option sometime instead of just margarine - maybe charge .50 or $1 more for the customer if they want it?" 1. You asked.... (more)
http://occmed.oxfordjournals.org/content/50/7/512.full.pdf+html The journal article refers to Burnout Syndrome as a disease of modern society with physical and psychological consequences. I've worked in the social services field for the past 15... (more)
I'm studying computer science right now (2 years ago I liked mathematics and wanted a cool career, so I decided computer science would probably be best), but after a year of paleo I'm starting to hate computers more and more. They are just boring.... (more)
I have been lacto-paleo for only three weeks, but the things I've noticed have been fairly startling. I am not overweight, but I have seemed to always carry my weight under my navel, and that is shrinking daily. It was fat I thought I was doomed... (more)
Yep.... I'm a 55 year old feeling like I have the energy of a 20 year old. I have a 1.5 year old Red-Bone Coon Hound that is very high energy and I wear him out. He quits running before I do!
Hi Along with the million fantastic changes I've had after going paleo There are a few... not bad.. but a few odd changes aswell After going paleo I now become constipated after eating any form of dairy, whether its in forms of cheese ( same... (more)
For me it was Iodoral. I'm not interested in eating seaweed everyday nor is there a good source around my area. 2nd would be selenium and 3rd magnesium. Update March 9, 2012: I'm reneging the Iodoral, selenium, and Mg claims. (more)
Coffee has done wonders for me!
I used to be a neurotic calorie counter for a good 1 year before starting Paleo. At first, it got me places; I got good grades at university, I learned the piano, and I was an overall way happier person. But then it got to be an obsession.... (more)
The world has got its problems. Finances and economies are in trouble. But the word crisis can also mean: 'opening to the future'. An opportunity... Have these financial troubles changed your paleo lifestyle? Changed your priorities? Changed your... (more)
I have been Paleo for 6 months now, and have had no weight loss. I am an active Crossfitter (5-6 days a week of activity) so I know that while my BF has dropped, my weight has increased because of muscle. I have tried eating NC and VLC to no... (more)
Have you read or commented on these articles? "If you start asking around, you???ll find that a surprising number of people have GI issues. The incidence of gut problems, major and minor, seems to be on the rise ??? and it seems to be distinct to... (more)
What change to your Paleo diet are you contemplating? Or have you likely already arrived at your life time food choices?
