I've been paleo going on a month and I've found that, no matter what, once a week I have a cheat meal. Not on purpose, it just works out that way. Anyway, I was wondering what kind of an effect these cheats could have? They're usually all out... (more)

Say you follow the Paleo diet 90% of the time. In terms of the other 10%, do you find it is more effective for (a)weight loss, (b)energy, and (c)dealing with mild repercussions to eat the 10% all at once (like one meal), or via small, sporadic... (more)

I time it all out as my carb refeed, killing two birds with one stone. Also, I take 200mg of Alpha Lipoic Acid about 20 min beforehand. Out of all the elements of Ferriss' PAGG stack, ALA is the one I can definitely feel making a difference. (more)

I'm fairly paleo (80%) and am also fairly lactose intolerant. I pop a digestive enzyme with lactase when I do eat softer cheese or other dairy. Yogurt, butter, kefir, fermented dairy, hard/aged cheese in general doesn't bother me. Cow's milk is... (more)

Not only what Nance said, but there still could be trace "fermentables" in your gut, I've had dairy issues (usually from a one-two punch combination of good beer and copious amounts of cheese) that have lasted for over a week... bloating, gas,... (more)

I've been eating Paleo pretty consistently for about three months. I've lost nearly 25 pounds and feel great. I've adjusted to the change really well, without much in the way of cravings or temptations. My questions concerns what happened the... (more)

Once a week I eat nuts--almonds. I eat enough to satisfy my salty craving ---of course it turns into too much. But I only do it once a week. How about you guys?

I like to get a gourmet ciabatta roll once in a while made from "low-protein flour." Yay or nay?

For me, a big 'nay,' but then, my cheats are almost exclusively fresh fruit.

So my mom is coming out to visit me in the Bay Area this weekend. She's very into Alice Waters, so we got a reservation for the fixed prix dinner this Friday night. She's being very generous to treat me to this $95-a-head meal. Here is the menu:... (more)

What are the possible pros and cons of having one "indulgent" day a week? I'm thinking foods like nuts, fruit, dairy, chocolate, wine, icecream, sweet potatoes, with the honest possibility of overeating... The reason I ask is that, although... (more)

Hi All, From a public health perspective, what good is a diet that cannot scale? Some say Paleo isn't sustainable globally or even in less-developed nations. Is that true? At the risk of sounding glib, isn't part of the Paleo lifestyle to use... (more)

Container gardening is going in a lot of new directions. Vertical, rooftop, straw bales, raised beds at the senior centers. Any way vegetables can be grown, we're going to figure out how to do it in every nook and cranny of urban and village life... (more)
