There is more to paleo than food. A simple question to someone who feels tired is -- how much do you sleep? and when? Your ancient paleo ancestor went to sleep soon after sunset and rose with the sun. The 19 year olds I have known (including... (more)

I have had success with using fruit to cut my sugar cravings. Other thing is are you eating because you are bored or are you actually hungry? I dont like fasts or cleanses personally and just eat a grape rather than a bit of chocolate.
