I was vegan for over a decade until I decided to leave the lifestyle behind. Now I'm pretty much 80% paleo but only with eggs and fish/seafood which are fine and don't make me sick. Recently I've been trying to add chicken, lamb, beef, bacon etc... (more)
Hi It's been just over 20 years since I ate meat, although I did eat fish and eggs up until approximately 8-10 years ago. 15-17 years since I ate dairy and 10 years since I ate grains. For about the past 5-6 years I followed Doug Graham's raw... (more)
Hi Everyone I???m fairly new to this site and for the past 6-8 weeks I???ve been following posts, and doing some research, because I???m considering changing my diet. Here???s a little about my background in order for anyone to help shed some... (more)

I became paleo, after being vegetarian for 15 years and vegan for the last 2, in the summer. Since the late summer I have been having issues with acne, mostly on my chin. I had never had any skin issues before, only the odd pimple. I have at... (more)
Yeah, ditch the fish oil. It makes me break out, and I've heard others say they have the same problem. It makes me break out in a big way along my jawline.
I'm a female, 34. I've always had problems with my weight. Mainly fat, sometimes almost obese, and only rarely thin (with a lot of effort). I got my first period when I was 11 and around then my breasts started to grow a lot, eventually reaching... (more)

I viewed the blog recently as it was mentioned somewhere I was already reading. I have nothing against it but I didn't add it to my bookmarked list as it didn't add anything to my own journey.
I've followed the ex-vegan community for some years now. I find it interesting to see how these poor people are vilified by their former peers. The number one reason they give for quiting is "health" (of course, right?) So, I am wondering if... (more)

Hi everyone. I'm a paleo-curious ex-vegan who had been kind of "flexitarianism"-ing it for the past year. Typically, I wake up extremely hungry and am totally non-functional until I eat. Then, throughout the day, I typically get hungry every 4... (more)
I've heard that people who are longtime vegetarians/veg*ns/vegetarians/veg*ns from birth that the first time they have meat/first time they have meat in a while it can make them sick. Was this the case with you? Or did you handle it just fine? (more)

I used to be a vegan and have been eating paleo for a couple months. Anyway, I have accepted that some meat is necessary for optimal health but I still have a very hard time with how meat is processed in the US. It is made worse because I live in... (more)
