Yes! It is definitely normal. I had something similar happen where the first few days I had a ton of energy and I ended up being extremely tired around day 8 (one week or so into it). Once I stuck through it, the carb flu had passed a couple... (more)

I'm trying to induce nutritional ketosis in an attempt to glean its mood-stabilizing and mental clarity benefits, and to stabilize my energy and alertness levels throughout the day. I'm currently employing the following diet: 8am: 2 tbsp MCT... (more)

I suspect you will need to increase your food intake, if not now, soon. As your fat stores dwindle, you will begin to have less energy. You may not feel it now, ten to twenty lbs later, you definitely will. The 'ill advised' level of saturated... (more)

I think I have some grasp on what foods are Paleo, but I don't have as clear a picture about what the proportions are. I get the impression that it may be best to change what you "find" from day to day, but if you were making a percentage... (more)

I'd recommend instead that you create a diverse pool of nutritious whole foods that you enjoy and eat them in the ratios that you find to be satisfying. If you want sugar, you eat whole fruit, if you want fat, you eat meat, eggs, avocados etc. If... (more)

One of the most common effects of eating Paleo/Primal seems to be having better energy and moods. Tweaking the diet further also really seems to help a lot of people, whether it's more/less carbs, no FODMAPs, or eliminating dairy. But for a... (more)

You need to watch you warning signs I guess. Youve worked those out, yeah? Lack of sleep, obvious ones like delusions or impulsivity, but ideally the more subtle ones you usually get early on. If you havent worked those out, sit down and write... (more)

First, I'm sorry if this question is against the rules here. But I hope it isn't closed. Are you "self-pleasuring" (masturbating) yourself more or less since eating this high meat, veggie and fruit diet? Many may not want to respond because they... (more)

Hi :) I'm 16 years old ( female ) and one of the reasons why I went to paleo was because of emotional cravings for S.A.D foods and i always felt pretty lousy. I initially started paleo as low carb (50-80g), just to help me kick the cravings out... (more)

Yes, not constantly being in a funky state from chronic using SAD foods will make the SAD foods seem to effect you worse when you decide to have them for whatever reason. However, I don't think you have too much to worry about re: hypoglycemia,... (more)

Growing up we always had "tea time" around 4 o'clock- it was a time when you made a pot of early grey, sliced up some apples, bananas, cheese, and deli meats then dug in. Sort of a "snack-and-caf". So, what I mean by tea time crash is that at 4... (more)

I eat coconut oil as my primary added fat -- over eggs and on veggies. I like the taste and am using it as a saturated fat replacement for butter. I do not however get any additional energy boost from it. My husband's office mate says he has to... (more)
