(at least I do) I have found over my time period of eating paleo that when I feel really really crappy I tend to worry less about eating chocolate or potatoes or going a bit off the beaten path. I wonder if there is any research as to why we do... (more)
Hi everyone! I desperately want to get lean and mean. I started the slow carb diet in January of this year, and I went from 188 to 174 in about 4 months, because I cheated more often that I should have. But, after following the diet very strictly... (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)
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)
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)
I spent 4 straight weeks only Paleo - doing amazing! Then, started traveling for work again. What is the best way to get back to the results I was seeing in the shortest timeframe?
I'd like to know how much cheating on your diet you guys can afford, without feeling like shit. Let me elaborate. I've been yo-yo ing between a sort-of-paleo diet and crap diet for the last few years. I tried sort-of-paleo to see wether this... (more)
So I'm a college kid - I'm learning all sorts of new stuff everyday and making my fair share of bad decisions. I just started the Paleo diet and did 6 days of being very strict. I felt SO great. The puffiness in my face and belly went down, I felt... (more)
Not that I want to, but ever since I got back from a 4 month trip abroad I meant to go eat a big juicy burger from Five Guys, bury my nose in donuts and cheesecake. But for some reason, I just can't bring myself to do it. Is this a normal habit... (more)
So I've been doing this paleo thing for 4.5 days and am trying to figure things out as I go... I think I've been doing well, but not perfect. But who is, really? Sweeteners: I know that honey and pure maple are OK. But what about others, in... (more)
Sweeteners: after experimenting with a few different ones I finally just quit them all. There is a fair amount of evidence that artificial sweeteners trigger hunger and insulin responses as much as sugars and in many ways are just as bad for you.... (more)
Here some info you might find useful: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/night-eating-syndrome-causes-solutions/
Standing rib roast, Salmon Roe, Jalapeno poppers wrapped in bacon instead of batter, Cheese plate, Veggie tray, Roasted Chestnuts, Wild boar salami With that list why cheat?
Lately I just can't seem to stop cheating. a "yolo" food now and then is one thing, but I seriously can't stay on the wagon longer than five seconds lately. None of my usual tricks for not cheating have been working lately. Do any of you have any... (more)
I have been tryin to stick to a paleo diet , grains or legumes is not the problem for me , i literally never crave them . However i am constantly binging on dairy foods , mainly pizza , ice cream and cheese wontons from the chinese restaurant ,... (more)
pizza , ice cream and cheese wontons.., general tso chicken BTW, all three are heavy in grains and sugars which are far worse (imo) than dairy. Perhaps you are using these as cravings for wheat/sugar unknowingly...
For any of you out there who doesn't know anyone who is paleo, I bet you guys can relate. So it's my friend's birthday next week, and we're going out for a meal. Brilliant, I thought. Only it turns out it's a 'set meal'. So for starters it's... (more)
You will be fine. 80/20 rule applies - you need to enjoy life too.
I'll admit it; I do. I'll be clean for 5 or 6 days, and then I'll succumb to Chick-Fil-A. Then the next week, maybe some rice and beans. The next week, pizza. Nine months paleo, but I will honestly say I haven't gone 30 days gluten free, at the... (more)
I ate 2 slices of pizza tonight and was wondering how this will affect my cholesterol levels. I do bike ride 80 miles a week and happened to do 4 miles up some big hills afterwards but I have a cholesterol test tomorrow and wanted to know what to... (more)
Not going TO party, visiting a friend and watching Phantom of the Opera (so exciting, I know!) Though they live minutes away from the strip, and well, you know. It's Vegas. Driving from L.A, I have to consider both the commute and the weekend. I... (more)
So, I've been pretty strict Paleo for about 5 months... I am extremely active (college athletics and crossfit) and have always been relatively healthy. I have no auto-immune disorders, celiac, etc. and I'm not trying to lose any... (more)
Ok, so I started paleo about a month ago. I've been pretty good about it so far. The first "cheat" meal I had was an anniversary dinner about two and a half weeks in, but it was still very minimal cheating. As in, I had a bite of my boyfriend's... (more)
I've been eating primarily paleo since last sept, sometimes more on the Mark Sisson end of the spectrum, sometimes more whole30-esque. I've lost about 40 lbs of fat, which was much needed. I no longer eat this way primarily for the weight loss,... (more)
I don't go full-SAD per se, but sometimes I find myself eating "that one, innocent meal/snack" and going into kind of a slippery slope. Usually that means, a little here, a little there, and then I'll cut it out for a couple weeks 'til it starts... (more)
Three months paleo (some days good, some days...not so good), I have seen results, lost almost 10lbs, but I'm in it for the long haul. And some days, I cheat. Like, hard core. I kick myself and get upset, but then start a new day, but some days I... (more)
Hi! I am thinking about starting a Paleo lifestyle, or at least try whole30 (for general better health (I have IBS, migraines and random/vague pains) and weight loss), but I am not 100% sure yet. I thought "trying won't hurt", but now I am reading... (more)
