I have been paleo for two weeks now, though gluten and dairy free for over a year. I am eating low enough carbs for the past week (below 50g) to be in ketosis, and the body fat is dropping. All good. I have noticed, though, that when I lie in... (more)
It's not just ketosis, but also sugar & salt withdrawal combined with fluid re-regulation. Make sure you are drinking enough water and getting adequate minerals in your diet.
Hey folks :) actually I think I already know some stuff about dry skin and paleo, also that it can be worst before it becomes better. But, my skin is realy, realy bad. When I press my finger nail in the back of my hand for just a second,... (more)

Could anyone share some more light on this. I started Paleo because of immune-system problems and skin issue. They put on of those permeant retainer things in my mouth when I first got my braces out during my adolescent years. I specifically... (more)
Hello, I'm a 19 year old female just starting recovery from anorexia. Because of long distance running, perscribed Adderall, and inadequate intake for a long long time, my resting heartrate has dropped to around 20-30, blood pressure is a little... (more)
Made a batch the other day and I actually like them! Its great how they are bite sized too. I just don't know the best method or temp to reheat the chicken hearts now? They are also on skewers if that make any difference.

I am paleo 99% of the time, but on a day like today, sometimes dark chocolate is just too delicious to pass up! The past few times I have eaten it - we're talking 70-85% dark chocolate - my heart starts to race for about an hour afterwards. I feel... (more)
It's probably the caffeine/theobromine. It's not something a sensitive person would notice from white or milk chocolate probably, but it's quite concentrated in the darker versions.

Kiribati has little health care. I have actually spent a week there once. The population has a lot of Coconut and fish. No or little refined foods. Very Paleoish.

I would at least rule out electrolyte imbalance. Eat more salt, bone or beef broth and take a Magnesium chelate supplement. Bananas or avocados for potassium. More seafood.
I've finally persuaded my mother to try eating a high fat / very low carb diet, in order to treat her type 2 diabetes. In just one week, the results are amazing (a couple days ago, she had blood sugar reading of 79! Prior to this, she rarely saw... (more)
