So I am getting some conflicting information from this site. A Lot of people here put more emphasis on meat + fat. However Mark Sission and Dr. Cordain describe the diet as a lot of green with a little lean protein. All of the books I have stress... (more)

Simple question. Have there been any stories of a lean person gaining body fat on a typical Paleo diet? I am very curious. The reasoning behind the diet sounds fantastic but there is still some part of my stubborn brain that's very hesitant... (more)
If I include a lot of fruit and nuts, make an attempt to eat until I'm completely full, and sit on my ass all day I can get a bit of a pudge going. Other than that, no.
I posted a question several days ago regarding my weight loss. It's stabilized and is slowly going back up to where I want it to be (thank you everyone for your ideas--been drinking some goat's milk every day and including more starchy foods). I... (more)
Ok so i've been rocking the cave dude diet for 3 weeks. I'm coming from a frutarian diet. Transitioning over to eating lots of animal was a piece of cake and has been quite enjoyable. Bacon and meat kicks booty, and i love booty, especially a nice... (more)
I'm a 30 years old male 5'7" and currently 135 lbs with about 10% or less body fat, mostly over my abs. I was 195 lbs two years ago (pure fat.) I'm curious if I tried to gain lean mass, how big could I reasonably get eating strict paleo, without... (more)
Has anyone every come across a grass-fed/finished farm that sells very tender meat? I've ordered quarter cows from a few farms now, and while I've enjoyed a lot of the meat, I find that the steaks and briskets tend to be tough. Part of the issue... (more)
Paleo... Top 3 key points? I'm sure as it is a goal for many, a thread with everyone's 2-3 top tips would be awesome. Obviously everyones body is different, just interesting to hear everyones pov, instead of having to search 'x' amount of... (more)
Lift heavy. High fat/high protein/low carb. Sleep.
Now that I'm becoming somewhat serious about exercising, I'm interested in calculating my body fat percentage. I am seeing two kinds in the market: (i) Stand-alone ones you can hold which seems to be using electric current; and (ii) one that... (more)

This question was prompted by reading Travis Culp's recent comment about fasting, where he says I'm already pretty lean, but I actually am getting leaner after cutting fructose down to almost nothing and increasing starch I've also read... (more)

I always recommend avoiding nuts, fruit and dairy during weight loss. Those I've found to be the biggest confounders for the majority, even those who respond well to them normally. After your weight loss is complete you can establish your personal... (more)
We have talked a lot about nuts being one of those items that should be limited or should go to really lean out, but I want to know why. I have heard it so often in the Paleo world that I believe it, but I am curious as to why this would be. If... (more)
a couple things: LA: Short Chain Omega 6 Inflammation. Bingeing, many people report that Nuts beget hunger. Whatever is going on chemically, in these people, eating a few makes them ravenous for more. Snacking, some people also use nuts to fill... (more)
I noticed some paleos took issue with meat in the paleo diet being described in the media as "lean". Isn't it true that wild and pastured meat tends to be quite lean? Farm animals in factory farms are fattened up, fed lots, kept in a sedentary... (more)
The "lean meat" stuff just gets tiring. There's no reason why you just can't say "meat". The only reason to throw in "lean" is a) You think fat is bad, or b) You don't want to scare you audience, who thinks fat is bad.

Hello everyone, I am wondering why the paleolithic diet, in many cases, promotes lean meats over fater alternatives. Hasn??t the research that been made on our evolution proven that hunter-gatherers consumed all bits and pieces of the animal. From... (more)
It doesn't. Fattier cuts of grassfed/organic meats, leaner cuts of conventional meats. High fat organ meats are also popular.
So I'm doing vlc due to pcos avd I'm finally progress in losing some fat around the mid section...I'm leaning out which is great but I'm not sure how much fat to incorporate into one meal. I'm obviously going for satiety and I've been trying... (more)
Based on my last question, "Paleo & Ladie's Bodies", I have developed a new question facing Paleo/Primal participants. If a healthy female participant in this lifestyle desired to be a little leaner (a little fat is ok), and at least have... (more)
