Hi guys i am going to start having a small amount caffeine before my workouts! Is there any good healthy sources of caffeine that you recommend? I'm thinking about trying just a shot of black coffee! Has anybody else tried this? If so i'd like... (more)
I drink black coffee and tea on occasion. I don't add anything to either unless fruit or honey to tea.
I'm going camping for 4 to 5 days in Telluride next week. I want to make sure that besides booze that I stick to Paleo eating as close as possible. So far I have thought of bringing beef jerky, sweet potatoes, fruit, some veggies, banana chips,... (more)
I'm a big fan of cooking up some veggie and meat kabobs before the trip. I don't mind eating them cold and they are perfect for grabbing and eating with your hands and no plate. Have fun!
Dear all, I am thinking about starting autoimmune protocol, but I am afraid I won't be able to be 100% compliant with it. It would be of huge help if you could rate each of the following "gray area" foods on 10 scale, 1 being ok and 10 extremely... (more)
Hey guys, Before i converted to eating paleo i used to chew chewing gum daily! Is it really that bad for you as i miss having it! Would probably only chew like 1/2 bits a day but what's everybody's thoughts on it? Does anybody else chew it? Ryan (more)
Hey guys i eat a lot of beef but only seem to roast it and then have it with veg or if its a steak i fry it or grill it! Is there any interesting or wacky recipes out there that you've tried and would recommend? I would like to make a curry but... (more)
Hey guys, I'm training in the gym a lot and am working on fat loss.. For this i am trying to become more insulin sensitive so my body uses my stored fat as it's source of energy! I love fruit though! But have cut it out for the past week... (more)
I am a type 1 diabetic and I find that the fruits that require the least insulin for me are strawberries, blue berries, lemon, and limes. In moderation of course. Hope this helps!
Hey Guys, I'm trying to eat around 200 grams of protein a day to maintain my muscle mass. Does anybody have any fresh ideas on how to eat this much protein? I am currently eating tons of chicken, beef, almonds and have a protein powder shake... (more)
I'm a woman that does moderate weight lifting... and I usually eat 130+ g of protein per day - without even trying! I think if you actually put some planning into it, you could get the 200g all while eating Paleo.
Was it helpful?
Hi guys and gals.. I'm buying fresh meat and vegetables at the moment which is costing me a fortune! I am going to keep up with the fresh meat but am considering buying frozen veg because it really is so expensive and also goes off so quick! Is... (more)
so my boyfriend and I have reached 1 month on the paleo diet. We've done pretty well (we had 1 cheat weekend over our anniversary, but that's it), and for the most part I think it's working for us. We do miss non-paleo items sometimes, though. For... (more)

Meat, animal fat, eggs, sweet potato, potato, olives/oil, avocados, coconut, nuts (macadamia has the best qualities and highest in calories). Basically high fat and starchy carbs are your best bet on the paleo diet.
I have celiac and now my GI specialists after tests tells me I am allergic to all seafood. This is terrible for me because it was the only meat I would eat. I can't stand the taste of other meat. This week in desperation I started a raw food... (more)
Hi guys! I was wondering about bacon! It's clearly something a lot of people who eat paleo eat! Is there a certain type to eat/not eat?? And presumably it's best to not eat too regularly or is that mainly up to how much you feel is enough?
Nitrate/nitrite-free is a gimmick, don't bother. A little sugar for the cure, completely fine! It's much more important that the actual meat be good quality, rather than focusing excessively on the cure used.
questions in the title, seems like when i eat any sort of leafy green vegetable it tears up my insides and i end up having blood in stool. Fruits don't give me this issue, any suggestions? I've tried bone broth for a while, it heals it up, but as... (more)

He believes indigineous peoples were healthy because they consumed ethanol, by creating brews that were alcoholic. He also thinks that when this was taken away from native peoples, they died. Does anyone know if there is any truth to this, i know... (more)
I???m healthy, don???t have any weight problems and have never experienced any adverse reaction to everyday foods. I did a 30-day strict paleo diet and it didn???t make any difference to me. Given this, I follow a basically paleo template diet (on... (more)
Does anyone know the exact specifications of the diet i'm getting quite confused, I know cliff has helped other users before. Not how much muscle meat to limit quantities of fruit, why baking soda? etc
This is a bit controversial testing method, but nevertheless, I decided to take it as one of the last options and results came in yesterday. Test taken was by Cambridge Nutritional Sciences - FoodPrint 200. Strong allergens: egg white, mussel,... (more)
