Hi so I chose to transition to the Paleo diet over the course of around 3 days. Today's the third day. The day before yesterday I ended up eating heaps, mostly paleo-stuff, lots of fat, and ended up eating most my usual carbs on top of it (rice,... (more)

Yes, this is normal. I had the same symptoms at the same time (after the first 48hrs on paleo). What is happening is that your body has run out of glucose in your muscles and liver to use for fuel. Your body has almost forgotten how to use fat... (more)

Quick question... has anyone found that eating an avocado a day is stalling their weight loss? I introduced one a few weeks ago to add some extra fat and calories into my diet. I am near my goal weight so I'm sure that could be a factor as well. I... (more)

If you're concerned about PUFA, you might wanna watch having one too many avocado. If you're concerned about putting a ceiling on daily PUFA intake to 4% or so, avocadoes can get you over the hump, especially if you also use olive oil. One Hass... (more)

So... are there any paleo Valentine's Day treats that you know of? I'd like to give some goodies to my mom, but I don't want them to be super unhealthy. Any ideas?

Is it better to get all your calories in one meal so that your body isn't regularly producing insulin or does the body have trouble processing all that food at once? also, the meal in question would be low carb and high fat.

Morning, Day, or Night shower? Is one better than the other? What are your thoughts? What do you do and why? I'm curious.

A warm/hot shower in the morning helps to clear sinuses that might have clogged during the night. At least it does for me. _Lazza

I only "fast"/starve myself if I've been especially naughty in the sweets and treats department for a day or two. I don't know why anyone would deprive themselves of some real, good food intentionally.

Been doing pretty well on the 30 day challenge, charting everything I eat. Have had NO grains, hardly any dairy, which has been minimal cheese. I am a very fit guy and carry alot of muscle. Should I just be more patient?? Help

I'm curious why most people do a 30 day challenge? Is it because you are off paleo/primal and trying to get back on track (or just starting?) Or is there a reason, while being paleo/primal, that one does the challenge (ie: weight plateaus?). (more)

I've never liked the word 'cheat'. In the real world there are times when you may have to eat foods that you wouldn't normally have. Rather than have a "cheat day", factor in no more than 3 or 4 meals/snacks a week, perhaps mostly at the weekend,... (more)
