I've been reading here and Googling paleo trail mix recipes. I'm going to do a dried fruit + nuts + coconut mix depending on what I find at trader joes, but I would also like to add some Chocolate and not sure on what to go with there. I'm doing... (more)

Yes, chocolate chips in trail mix will definitely melt and definitely make a mess. As for M&Ms, the bigger concern is probably the milk and the low cacao content (most paleo folks go for dark chocolate). But if you're okay with that, I... (more)

In my opinion, exercise is about four things, in this order: Enjoyment Frequency Intensity Duration The exercise that is best for you is the one that you enjoy and will do on a regular basis. After that you can exchange 3 and 4, intense but... (more)

Hello tribe, Is hiking uphill a good/fair substitute for squats and calf raises? I usually go for an 8 mile hike, 2-3 times a week. Love to all

Obviously, the the best 'substitute' is to hike by squat-hopping up the trail. Otherwise they're not really in the same league. Only half joking. Squat-hopping uphill is a great exercise and best done up stairs.

Almost tempting to phrase this with "Is the Appalachian Trail paleo?" but I doubt our hunter-gatherer forebears would bother to consider the idea of strapping on a 35lb backpack to hike 2,000 miles just for the sake of doing it. But let's say they... (more)

You didn't specify, but if you're eating even fruit or nuts, these hikes could likely cause elevated cortisol, which would then inhibit fat burning and promote fat storage. Part of it could be explained by water retention, but that wouldn't... (more)
