Hi guys! Im an 18 year old female powerlifter, about 5'5". I dont weigh myself because of a past with eating disorders but Id guess Im 130-135lbs. I eat VERY healthfully. No processed food, everything is cooked at home. Animal... (more)
I'm not really much of a breakfast person, but I take a few supplements in the morning that require you to have something in your stomach. I've read that often it's because the supplement needs fat to better enter your sytem. Would it be ok... (more)
I am fully Paleo and I avoid processed and junk food as much as I can. I don't particularly miss any junk/processed food... except Tang that is. I feel nostalgic about it. Don't you think the rare Tang (say, once or twice a year) treat is that bad... (more)
I am a quite healthy individual, trying raw food, fruiterianism and paleo in the past. Now I am on a so called standard diet with everything included except gluten in any form.... My biggest problem has never been weight gain, only negative weight... (more)
Hello all, Wow, so much information... I am about to start the 30 day Paleo Diet. I wondered if there was a definitive food chart available since I couldn't find one in Rob's book. I'm still not entirely clear which foods are allowed and which... (more)

I have been writing down what I eat/drink and times. I have daily bloating pain and need to figure out what's bothering me. I eat GF, dairy free - follow paleo. Hope you can help!
Hey guys, Is it ok to eat the fat/rind that comes on pork/lamb chops? I find it the tastiest bit of the meat but am keen to learn if it is really ok to do so although i do keep it to a bare minimum!
Hey these foods are foods i used to love when i didn't eat paleo and i was wondering wether i could have them in moderation now i do eat paleo! 1) Black pudding?? 2) Cashew nuts? 3) Fat on lamb/pork chops? Most tasty bit but should it be eaten... (more)
So, I've been on Paleo for three weeks - haven't had any dairy or grains the entire time. I tried making paleo pizza crust and it just turned out poorly. I'm thinking of having pizza tomorrow to satisfy my pizza itch - with cheese, regular crust... (more)
For those of you who try to maintain your ketosis where do you get most of the fat in your diet? My default when going low carb is to replace most of the carbs with protein but this seems to be a mistake. So when you're eating less than 50, or... (more)
We know that a lot of ibs's cases are caused by SIBO , gluten and dairy sensivity/intollerance... but.. what about appendicitis? In your opinion what's the cause of that inflammation?
I'm trying to increase my testosterone levels. I already know about adequate sleep. Lowering stress and lifting heavy weights. I know which fats to eat, saturated and monounsaturated. What paleo foods should i avoid? Does too many carbs from fruit... (more)
There are really several ways to approach raising testosterone, but there is only one way to optimize it. WHen you do things to raise testosterone, typically you also increase estradiol via aromatization. Aromatization is just the conversion of T... (more)
I never really though of fruit as real food that you would eat in a meal. To me, fruit falls in the same category as nuts and seeds. They're good as snacks and that's it. I think they are nature's candy. I find it so easy to overeat or binge on... (more)
Fruits are not necessary as depending on seasonality, they were not always available. A lot of research is starting to come to light about metabolic pathways, fructose, and seasonality. It's some pretty cool stuff and it will be cool to see what... (more)
I think it depends on you definition of "paleo", but you can definitely make gluten-free gravy. Some sort of starch is inevitable because the cooked starch is what gelatinizes and thickens the stock. This post on glutenfreegirl.com features a... (more)

In the summer I will be going to India for four weeks with my sixth form. While there I'm not going to have much of a chance to eat Paleo, but for the experience I will get I don't think its really too much of a problem. However, my teacher said... (more)
Ok so gradually I have been able to phase out carbs. I would start with doing Paleo + dairy and then over time my demand for dairy products would go so I didn't need that either. So I was getting along really well until I was forced to eat carbs.... (more)
My son loves raisin. I understand that it's a fruit and the sugar content, but I never hear anyone talk about them. Are raisins avoided for some reason I am unaware of?
Are raisins avoided for some reason I am unaware of? Raisins should be avoided because they have astronomically high sugar levels, and half of that sugar is fructose. Fructose is toxic. The body can dispose of it safely in small amounts but... (more)
