I'm a 19 year old college student struggling with how strict paleo to be, and how much to eat in general. It's pretty hard to be perfect paleo on a meal plan in a college cafeteria - for example, they put milk in all their eggs! :( The... (more)
I see there are many recipes of paleo pancakes, brownies, ice cream, cinnamon rolls (oooh myy, looks soo good..), etc. Is this something you include in your diet, or do you stay away from baking and keep it totally clean?
Hey, I've started to Paleo a few days ago. I'm also training with main lifts such as squats, deadlifts, presses, chins etc. So, want to make a cheat day once a week, prolly saturday or sunday and want to eat pizza, hamburger, kebab,... (more)
I decided to give the Paleo lifestyle a go as advised by my personal trainer (he loves it). So far apart from the cravings for bread i am doing not too bad. My main reason for getting into Paleo is weight loss and for the health benefits. However... (more)
Hi, Today I was out with friends at a cafe and decided to have a cheat treat and got a piece of carrot cake. I figured since I had walked there (approx 40 mins) and was due to walk home too that hopefully I would work it off. When I got back... (more)
Usually by Monday, we run out of delicious meat/fish/eggs. So we eat tofu for dinner. Is it okay for once a week? And also, is it okay to eat rice a little everyday? It's like 80/20. What do you think?
I'm going to an overnight week summer camp and will not be able to eat paleo, should I bring snacks like nuts and stuff and have those instead of sugary granola bars an just have the meals? its my fifth year going but first time paleo lifestyle,... (more)
dude if you're 15 and at summer camp, getting laid should be your priority, not being the point dexter with the organic pate and veggies. Girls >sports>life goals>food
I'm not trying to lose weight, so I'm not asking if this would slow progress or not I'm asking about optimum health if you get what I mean. Tonight I'm having dinner with my family like I usually do, but most of the time it works out great because... (more)
Hey everyone. I was just wondering about cheat meals and being paleo. I am an active then girl who does paleo mostly 85-90% of the time...but sometimes, im with friends and they will have brownies or icecream and I just have to have some! I'm not... (more)
I've been eating a Primal diet for the past 3 years. On my longer stretches without any cheats, I find that my doodoos are not that solid, more like kind of soft and greasy. I'm guessing that it's from the high fat content of my diet. I'm... (more)
I had some herb crusted zucchini pan fried in what probably was vegetable oil followed by some natural vanilla bean ice cream hot fudge Sunday with almond shavings. What about you?
After a week of being strictly Paleo, I succumbed to a very delicious looking brownie. My roommate brought home a whole tray over the weekend and I'd been staring at them for days but turning toward fruit instead. In a moment of weakness I... (more)
I've just started the Paleo diet. I started a little less than a month ago (3/18/13). My first two weeks of starting I saw an initial weight gain and then about a week or two ago just started losing and can really tell that I'm losing fat in my... (more)
So i've been following eating paleo for 7 weeks now. I've got the eating part down. I recently in the past 2 weeks added some protein powder and low fat dairy products.So now i'm eating meats, eggs, veggies, fruits, nuts, seeds, oils, sweet... (more)
I'm trying the paleo diet, but I LOVE sushi. I love Boston Rolls without cream cheese... The only thing in that that's not paleo would be the rice... How often would it be okay to cheat and eat this (1x Boston Roll, sans cream cheese), provided... (more)
Hi guys, I've been trying the autoimmune protocol for about 3 months now and had great success. As long as I stick to it, a very strict version, I am pretty much completely symptom free of Chron's. My question is about reintroducing certain... (more)
I started my Paleo lifestyle almost a week ago and I've gone from 183lbs to 178lbs. I plan on sticking with this way of eating for a long time, I definitely feel better about myself already and I don't really have the cravings that I did the first... (more)
Some background: About 5 months ago I had a 1 month long collision with anorexia and bulimia, which turned into 4 months of extreme constant binging and overeating, especially of bready carbs, sugar, and peanut butter (somehow I gained less than 5... (more)
Relax. You appear to be intolerant to gluten and the only thing to do is to eat a normal Paleo diet and give yourself a break. Getting some counseling for your eating concerns/anxiety may be helpful, too.
Background - I'm leaning out nicely on a paleo plus twice weekly 24 hour fast setup, with carb refeeds occasionally after a heavy lifting session (3x per week). I'm no longer the heavy drinker I was as a student, and keep it to a gin and tonic or... (more)
If you could choose any one food/dish/desert/whatever that you could eat with absolutely no ill effect FOR THE REST OF YOUR DAYS. Rather, no effect whatsoever. No calories, no nothing, what would it be. If I had to choose, definitely... (more)
I've been doing Paleo for almost 2 weeks, and loved the results so far (Yes, I know the 10 pounds I lost the first week was water weight, but still.), today I wasn't in the mood to cook, and decided to let myself go to Subway and get a footlong... (more)
Don't be so hard on yourself. Re-examine your relationship with food. Consider it a "treat" not a "cheat" because you didn't do anything morally wrong, you just ate something that tastes great and has a bad effect on your body. You are suffering... (more)
Been on paleo for two weeks now. Lost a little weight and I don't feel as tired in the afternoon (afternoon lessons in school used to kill me!) so I'm loving paleo. Tonight my friend and I went to the cinema (Breaking Dawn Pt 2...her choice) so I... (more)

Ok so I'm fairly new to paleo and have a few questions. I started about two weeks ago after reading Robb Wolf's The Paleo Solution. I haven't noticed a huge difference, although daily headaches which I used to get are gone. I'm not 100%... (more)
