Hi, So I've had some undiagnosable health issues and chronic pain for a couple of years now. I'm 31. I've had so many tests and have seen so many doctors that I can't even keep track of it all. Recently I had a 24 hour urine test. My arsenic... (more)

So I'm curious about the pros and cons of one over the other. Usually I make americanos with HWC but occasionally with coconut. I like both. Is one better for health? How about for weight loss?

I recently figured out that the unease I've felt in regards to Paleo-style eating is that it is fairly heavy eating. I feel weighed down when I eat mainly meats, nuts, and eggs. I do eat vegetables with lunch and dinner, but I find that when I... (more)
Does anyone have an idea of where to start lifting heavy things given my background, and is it possible to do it at home, or is a gym inevitable? My primary goal is to gain power in the muscles I already have...perhaps a tiny bit of mass, and lean... (more)
Hi all, I'm a paleo newbie and was just wondering if it's normal to feel very heavy all the time? I haven't gained or lost any weight (only gave up grains a few weeks ago) and it's not a bloated feeling. Just heavy. I don't know how to describe it... (more)

Around a litre a week, maybe more. Lady in the local shop commented the other day, "gee you go through a lot of cream". I replied, "I love it, I often drink it straight from the carton, I don't drink milk". She looked at me very strangely.
Drinking heavy cream in tea/coffee is easy enough and I understand some people add HC to eggs and make shakes of sorts. Does anyone have any other recommendations? I have trouble drinking it plain and I'm veering away from even decaf coffees and... (more)
