I have been paleo since August of 2013 and throughout my journey I have been battling digestive issues such as constipation, diarrhea and stomach cramps. My non-paleo boyfriend eats whatever he wants and doesn't seem to have these problems. Why... (more)
Why can Lebron James make Millions throwing a ball through a net? People are made different. You may have a good allergy, gut issues, etc. -- doesn't mean he does.
My main source of carbs has always been kabocha squash and sweet potatoes of all different types but recently it seems like my stomach is reacting weirdly. I used to eat at least 3-4 large sweet potatoes each day but now whenever I do that I... (more)
Basically I started eating the paleo way a month or two back and it's been life changing for me, used to binge/purge/do chronic cardio and was basically an overweight, depressed mess. My boyfriend wanted to try it out so we cut out all the... (more)
Hey everyone, I've been Primal for a month now and recently I started experiencing stomach aches. They were mostly mild (still annoying) but yesterday I had severe cramps with diarrhea and I decided that was a sign to look it up. The... (more)
I had a gastroscopy yesterday and therefore had an enforced 24hr fasting. I had read about other Paleos' fasting or carrying out intermittent fasting but have been told that it is not good for me personally as I only have one good nutritious... (more)
Paleo has been helping me get back on track physically. I have more energy, better appetite, more regular bowel movements, my skin is improving, my mind seems sharper. I even gained a few pounds. I'm pretty satisfied and I haven't even gone all-in... (more)
My husband and I are starting the Paleo diet this week, but are on a tight budget. Will the diet still be as effective if I can't buy all grass-fed or pastured meat? I can afford to buy some things (cage-free eggs, mostly organic produce), but... (more)
I always had difficulties with digesting veggies in general. After 6 months in full ketosis and consuming no more than 30 grams of veggies per day (only lettuce and avocado) I reintroduced other vegetables and fruits. I suspect I had SIBO and now... (more)
I started eating paleo in January (about 4months ago) and felt amazing. The 15% would be the occasional side of white rice or a little goat cheese). I decided to try a 30-day strict paleo challenge to ween my way off sugar a bit and I'm finding my... (more)

A few days ago, I did an ab workout that was harder than usual. Most of the time I do side bends with a 45 pound plate as well as some planks with no weight. However this time I did some mason twists with a medicine ball (not sure of its exact... (more)
no it does not. watch your breathing next time and notice you are swallowing air. another possibility is that your preworkout meal may need to be eaten earlier so that you are on an empty stomach, and move your post workout meal to immediately... (more)
I'm interested in trying the paleo diet/lifestyle since I've started getting interested in fitness, and alot of people seem to have been very successful with their fitness routines while following a paleo type diet. My trouble is, perhaps due to... (more)
I have on-again/off-again digestion issues, and I was considering doing strict paleo PLUS avoiding nightshades, eggs, alcohol, dairy, and all nuts and seeds for the first 30 days. This sounds very restrictive, but I'm willing to do it if it'll... (more)
Hello, I've been eating a paleolithic diet since about Thanksgiving of last year. I've lost roughly 25 lbs and for the first few months there were no issues. In late January I asked a question here because I thought I was having some digestive... (more)
If there's one thing the paleo gurus love, it's coconut. Coconut seems to be the predominant ingredient in most paleo recipes; Dr. K says you should consume it religiously for leaky gut; it's prescribed for candida and bacterial overgrowth--and... (more)
Looking for some advice or personal experience from people here on this problem I have. For a few years I have been having digestive pain and diarrhea (gross I know, sorry). I could never work out what it is that causes it except I think that it... (more)
Cut out coffee and eggs for a week. Don't add anything new to the diet. After one week, reintroduce the coffee or the eggs to the diet and monitor what happens.
Starting about a year ago I began having insomnia for no apparent reason. I've had digestive problems that also have gotten worse over the past year so I think that has something to do with it but I'm not sure. For months I've been taking 5htp... (more)
