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 have been on paleo AIP strictly for 3 mths(scleroderma). Can I have a
I've been eating paleo-foods, with dairy, such as whole milk and sometimes the occasional Kerrygold Butter. Meat, eggs, fruit, nuts. But in the past, I've noticed that when I would watch my calorie intake while still eating paleo-approved... (more)
So I'm a camp counselor for a week in August, and this will be my first year on a paleo diet. It's never been a problem before, but they definitely don't prepare paleo meals! Lots of pizza and pasta and ice cream...that sorta stuff. I'm not... (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!
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 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)

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)
I've been Paleo for quite some months now. When I was over in Haiti, I didn't eat Paleo for a week. I got back, had the runs, and now I'm back eating Paleo. It's been about a month since I was in Haiti, and I've had brain fog for the last 2... (more)
Hi, I'm really interested whether here are people around who actually healed a food allergy or autoimmune condition with a strict paleo diet? I'm reacting to dairy, soy and beef and doctors generally say such things last forever. But I'm sure... (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)
Following up on an earlier question contemplating the optimal "Paleo" vitamin dose, which foods would be good starting points for ascertaining recommended fat soluble vitamin ratios? Do you know the A-D-K-E ratio of any "whole" foods? (more)
As pointed out in the other thread, it makes no sense to include D in this, as paleo man got most of his D from the sun. The food that contains the most D, liver, probably contains too much A compared to D.
Aside from discussions on why you would want to do it.Obviously, you will need to tap into "gray area", but the question is what gray area foods.I am currently thinking oats (real ones) and red lentils. Both are convenient (quick to cook), low GI... (more)
