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'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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
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 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?
Since going paleo, have you found a sense of contentment, purpose, or has going paleo been another source of anxiety in your life? For me, it's a mixture of everything depending on the time and the weather.... How do you all deal with the "highs"... (more)
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)
I've been doing Paleo for a little over a month now I guess, I'm not too good with tracking time, but in that period I've noticed a lot of changes. What is the SINGLE best change you've noticed? I'll go first: Best bowel movements ever! I always... (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)
Sure, Supersize Me may have had fraudulent methodology for the experiment and misleading results, but the overarching message was very on-point in my opinion. I did like Fathead, but it wasn't Paleo. There's tons of Vegan Docu-ganda out there,... (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)
Some people have mentioned various phases they have progressed through during the continuing months of eating paleo. For instance, for myself, I noticed that at first, I was very hungry on paleo and snacked often, but still lost weight. Then as... (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)
