So, a lot of paleo eaters have all but sworn off fruit. Some of them say "I don't eat fruit..." to preface certain statements. Veggies are fine, meat is grand. I like those but what's the thing with fruit? I'm not doing this to lose weight. I... (more)

I'm very new to the paleo diet. I'm three days in, actually. I read somewhere that if you're trying to lose weight (as I am) you should limit your amount of fruit. I'm pretty strict otherwise but I just find fruit is such a handy snack - just grab... (more)

My understanding is that over consumption of fructose has negative consequences. I'm paleo also, but I get most my carbs from potatoes (glucose) and other starchy tubers. ( I also find I function better with carbs than... (more)

Practical Paleo does a great job at addressing this.

I wouldn't worry about your fructose intake. One, it's not that high. Two, it's from a whole food instead of processed HFCS so you get all the benefits of the fiber and micronutrients. Three, you're very active, so your liver should have no... (more)

One thing you could do is track your eating for a week or so and get a handle on just how much you are eating in terms of protein, fat and carbs. You may or may not want to go low carb (though low-ish might be good, at least at first, if you are... (more)
