Ever since I switched to a grain-free paleo diet 6 months ago I've had paler skin with dark circles around my eyes. Lately I've noticed the skin on my forehead must be thinning because there's a small vein in the center of my forehead that is... (more)

Could be your thyroid. If you were eating low carb paleo, your thyroid might not be happy. I have Hashimoto's (mostly low thyroid) and have found that I do better if I make sure I'm eating starchy foods and fruit semi-regularly (berries, pears,... (more)

Hello, I've been paleo for roughly 3 months now. In the first month I felt better almost instantly and had an abundance of energy, felt like I could talk to people and felt overall positive. The past 2 months seems to reflect how I felt when I... (more)

I wear Bare Escentuals mineral makeup practically every day - the foundation, mineral veil, and eyeshadow. I've never worn any other type of makeup, and most contain parabens and all sorts of nasty stuff, I wouldn't want to start. However I'm... (more)

I've had dark circles under my eyes since I was a child, which made me conclude that it's probably a genetic thing and that there isn't much that I can do about it. However, they are not constantly there, I notice it changes a lot. For example:... (more)

I will second this by adding that I had dark circles my entire life until I gave up alcohol, and then got onto paleo. Also changing my lifestyle so I get to bed early and ensure a minimum of 8 hours sleep per night. This took a couple of years but... (more)

Is there anything in conventional eggs or eggs in general that could attribute to dark circles? I had a slight cold about two weeks ago and wasn't feeling too hot. I decided for the hell of it that I was going to give eggs a break. Previously I... (more)

Is it possible that you are mildly allergic to eggs? Some people get "allergic shiners". Although that is often in conjunction with hay fever, hay fever itself can be triggered by foods. I had to stop eating eggs; a repeated set of A-B-A-B tests... (more)

I have the telltale dark circles that everyone on the Middle Eastern side of my family has. As I get older, they get worse and worse. I had a friend who is a makeup artist try some airbrushing out on me and he couldn't even eliminate them... (more)

Though the tendency toward dark circles is hereditary dark circles and/or puffiness indicate that your kidneys are taxed. Make sure you are getting adequate amounts of saturated fats, avoid all gluten, soy and dairy, eat only grass fed meats,... (more)

Hello Everyone, I have been doing Paleo for about 25 days or so.. almost completely religiously with perhaps 1 or 2 slip ups tops. I have already dropped about 20 lbs and gained much muscle overall (I am also doing the insanity workout program to... (more)

According to Robb Wolf (in one of his podcasts), dark circles could be a sign of adrenal fatigue and the explanation goes something like this. Tons of intense exercise without sufficient rest can cause adrenal fatigue, so I'm guessing the dark... (more)

I've had dark circles for a while and no amount of sleep seems to affect it one way or the other. I did about 4 grams of psilocybin mushrooms, soaked in apple cider vinegar for an hour and my dark circles reduced by at least 50%. It's very visible... (more)

Dark circles = food allergy of some sort. Mine went away within weeks of removing eggs and dairy completely, as I found out I'm intolerant. Cold hands and feet could be thyroid related, or adrenal fatigue. Get thee to a paleo friendly,... (more)

Hi, if I could trade any past or future benefits of paleo to remove the dark circles under my eyes I would, along with any money I have or talents or possibly friends and family, they make me so depressed I have honestly thought about killing... (more)

Has anyone been able to cure this with Paleo? If not, did hunter-gatherers also get this or is it because we are exposed to so many plants that we did not evolve to be around. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0001816/ Edit: my... (more)

My allergies have improved dramatically since I started eating Paleo 1.5 years ago. I no longer take allergy meds and have only had one head cold (or allergy attack, I could never tell before) since December!
