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)
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)
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)
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)
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 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)
What change to your Paleo diet are you contemplating? Or have you likely already arrived at your life time food choices?
Do your feet (the physical feet, not walking mechanics) seem different after long-term barefoot walking/running? Here's a study concluding that born-barefoot walkers have wider feet than born-shoe... (more)
At the risk of subjecting you to yet another banal and certainly verbose question, I decided to take my answer to another question as the basis for a different topic. I am going to post a few snippets from something Dr Kurt Harris wrote on another... (more)
For me it is joint pain. It goes away without gluten and sugar and comes back when I eat sugar. I think it is different for everyone, but that is one notable effect I get in the first week or so.
This is something I've been thinking about alot lately. It hasn't made me question how I'm eating, or how I'm voting with my dollar, as I still believe that this is the right way to eat, and most everyone would benefit from it. I want to scream... (more)
Does food taste different to you now on paleo? I was eating a sweet potato today and realized that I now LOVE the taste of sweet potato whereas I used to vaguely not care for it, preferring regular potatoes. And my ability to taste natural... (more)
I've got a friend who eats a SAD. She has been having some serious issues with high blood pressure lately, and her doctors are wanting her to go on pills, probably forever. I've done some basic research on helping her change her diet, and there... (more)
Humans did not change significantly since the stone age, so that's why a paleo diet makes so much sense. But as we increasingly get to know, the human organism is very dependent on the bacteria that live in/on us. Do you think these bacteria have... (more)
I am amazed at all of the shifts that have taken place in my life since going Paleo, far beyond weight loss. I am curious what other's experiences have been. Here is my quick positive list: -increased muscle mass -drastically increased energy... (more)
I'm looking for people who know and/or have experienced changes in their psoriasis with a paleo diet/lifestyle. I've been having a little bit of psoriasis around the elbows and knees for some 7 years. I was generally healthy and fit, and was... (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)
