Quick question, Is it the same (as far as the body is concerned) to carb load the night before a hard, fasted workout in the morning with fruit (I've been tending towards eating a lot of grapes, berries, melon) as opposed to starches... (more)
Hey all- Relatively new to the Paleo Diet but am so happy with the results so far. My question is: if you eat a moderate amount of fruit in a day, do you need to watch the fats you then take in? Are the sugars in the fruit going to... (more)
I am an athlete (basketball player) currently on the paleo diet. I am looking to lean out, but feel as if I will not get enough energy if I take both fruits and nuts out of my diet. Which of the two if taken out would yield better results for... (more)
nuts are far more calorie dense than fruit. take the nuts out, keep the fruit. it's VLC mythos that fruit will magically prevent fat loss. energy balance will always rule, even if people are too stupid to believe it.
I've noticed that most people on paleohacks seem to eat mostly meat vs. mostly fruits and vegetables. I myself have been eating more meat and at first felt great now not so much. I'm wondering if anyone primarily eats vegetables nuts and fruits... (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)
Hello! I had a heat exhaustion 3 days ago and have had a mild fever since. Today I was craving some apples, so I ate two quite big apples. Now I feel bad, because I feel that it will sabotage my weight loss. :( Can the craving be from the... (more)
I know dried fruits are usually frowned upon in the paleo community because of the high sugar and low water content. Usually, whenever I eat any type of dried fruit I get really thirsty really fast, and I get a little sugar rush as well. Dates... (more)

I've been doing paleo for about 7-8 months now, and somehow I am finding it hard to get in calories. I am female, 5'8'', around 140 lbs, and have gotten fairly lean, but am looking to lose the last bit of belly fat. I work out 5-6 days a week, and... (more)
It's obviously not natural but it's still fruit and, presumably, has a similar nutrient profile just with the added convenience of not watching out for seeds. Seedless fruit is easier to eat at your desk but is there more to it? For example,... (more)
Everyone says that if you eat a lot of fruit the sugar in it will still make you fat. Fruits are better than m&m's but you can still overeat them and gain weight. Well, then how is it possible that i can eat a LOAD of sugary fruit (like... (more)
Hi, I'm completely new to paleo, I've actually only on week 2. I'm doing a project where I'm doing paleo for a month, then vegetarian, then vegan, just to see how each makes me feel. Anyway, I get up very early for work and the last thing I... (more)
Eating seasonally makes perfect sense and goes along with other paleo doctrine but I naturally question all things. I've been tentatively eating seasonally too, but not taking it too seriously. CW says that the human diet in temperate... (more)
Are there any other people here who have to give up friut, like myself? I crash on any fruit, from apples, to berries and cant even eat tomato sause (the ones without sugar or bad oils) If I don't eat fruit I am fine. Any one else like that? (more)
I have been successfully paleo for 60 days. I feel great and couldn't be happier with the results I have seen. However, in those 60 days, I have had absolutely no fruit. I'm not a big fan to begin with, so it wasn't too hard. But I'd like to... (more)
Fat loss is not all, you may regret avoiding all fruits when you get older. Berries, for example, and probably especially strawberries and blueberries are good for at least some of memory/cognition/learning...
Hi, I am currently living in a small beach town in Costa Rica. I do not have a car which makes it difficult to get to the closest super market which is 15 minutes away. This makes it hard for me to get beef and fish. I do have easy access to... (more)

I agree, all of them are allowed. But I would opt for the savory ones over the sweet ones as they tend to be less sugary. Examples: cucumbers and pickles, zucchini and most squashes, tomatoes, eggplants, avocados, olives, peppers and lemons just... (more)
So i have found myself craving fruit like crazy since i started the paleo diet. I know it is just because of the sugars in fruit, but i eat quite a bit of fruit every day. So how much is too much??? any suggestions for alternatives to fruit to... (more)
I am almost 2 weeks into doing Paleo which I chose for weight loss. I think I mistakenly thought that just by virtue of eliminating all the bread/pasta/carbs, diet soda and dairy that I would just lose weight, but I don't think that's the case.... (more)
Going on the Paleo diet, my goals are to live a healthier life style, and to live the way my body was meant to function. I love Paleo! I feel amazing, but my other goal is also to weight loss. How many servings of fruit are okay to have on... (more)
