My skin isn't dry but the last time I went into ketosis (and first time also), my skin got so dry, my hands where dry and it looked like the "scales" on it were larger if you know what I mean. It was worse when I woke up. My lips also got really... (more)
I guess is because once you don't eat too much carbs, you lose water from the muscles at the beginning. I think you should drink more water. But i'm not an expert, sorry.
I've always had trouble eliminating grains from my diet, due to the fact that it's too hard to get enough calories without them, it's hard to get enough carbohydrates with just tubers and milk, and grains take like 5-10 minutes to make aposed to... (more)
I'm a snacker, I like to have something on hand to nibble on. I don't snack on bad things (all the time) but I've been thinking about getting a dehydrator to dry some fruit. From a paleo perspective, is this a good snack? too high in sugar? worth... (more)

Perhaps I'm being melodramatic, but it has seriously impacted my vocal performance. A little preface: I am a singer and songwriter. I have been singing basically since I was born. My mom was a hippie and played guitar and autoharp, and taught... (more)
I noticed a few other posts on this, but has anyone found a solution for the weirdly dry mouth on strict paleo? Even my lips feel like they are cracking. No amount of extra water seems to help. Am I missing something important? I've been... (more)
For my husband in Iraq. I would love to send him some fun things but now that he's paleo, we can't make him a batch of chocolate chip cookies or whatever, I need ideas other than just a case of almonds or whatever. I'm going to make some homemade... (more)
I would second the Larabars. I've been making some homemade knockoffs lately. You can google the recipes. Thanks for being there for you husband as he is in Iraq for us. God bless.
