Ok, so by accident I started the paleo lifestyle about 2 months For the first month everything was fantastic. In the beginning I was only maybe 70/30 paleo. I lost almost 15pounds in 3 weeks. My energy rose thru the roof, my libido was in full... (more)
For me, I am filled with a better, more positive attitude, where before I was grumpy all the time. I didn't expect that but it's AWESOME. Being filled with all that good energy spills over into everything I do. Also, it's brought my husband and... (more)
Hi there! I recently moved back from Japan to America- about 18 days ago. In that time, I seem to have gained nine pounds! I'm sure some of it is water weight, but I don't know how to get my body to regulate itself. I'm constantly hungry, but... (more)
Hello Everyone. I started eating a Paleo diet four weeks ago after reading about it online and becoming curious to try. I am actually very proud of myself for removing refined sugars, refined carbohydrates, gluten, food additives and... (more)
Same here. My tolerance has gone down. It's sad. I think it has more to do with not consuming alcohol as frequently as I did before in my pre-Paleo days. It may also have something to do with aging... I have become more sensitive to wine as well.... (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)
I am generally interested in getting some blood tests done this month (January 2012) and then again in six months, and then January 2013. I have only been eating Paleo for three months and so would like to get them done now so I can see the... (more)
I'm 20, 5 feet and 175 pounds. I was pretty skinny as a kid, but started gaining weight without realizing it and once I got a little older and weight became something that I thought about, it was too late. It's time for a change, this is my... (more)
hey PH as im learing about paleo and my body, i want to know in better detail how certain foods affect my mind and body. when making changes whether large or small, how long do you wait to see if anything is happening? a few days, weeks, etc? (more)
I like to give it at minimum 2 weeks and you are probably better off with a month. Be careful to only make one change at a time so you are sure what is affecting you.
Before I made the switch to Paleo, I was getting kind of bored with my hobbies. You can only play so many video games (hundreds) before you've played 'em all, you know? Since starting Paleo, I feel like I've picked up so many things. I was... (more)
What's the biggest surprise you've had as a result of changing your diet to or toward Paleo? Anything you read that you were surprised actually turned out to be true? Anything you didn't learn before switching that was a jolt to learn, when... (more)
What was the moment when you realized what your paleo 'duh' or pareto-effect was? I.e. what was simple thing you stumbled on within paleo that made a huge, disproportionate difference in your wellbeing? For me it was sleep. I'd read about how... (more)
When I realized I had to defend a diet rich in lean meats, fish, and veggies to an overweight coworker I was having a nutrition discussion with. Both a "duh" moment, and also a moment that I sort of pitied him and those like him.
