I know I have kind of asked this question before, but I don't understand why some people suggest no fruit if wanting to lose weight. I have heard that losing a few lbs has to do with lowering insulin levels, but if you are in a healthy paleo... (more)

If you're eating VLC for fat-loss, I'm not sure loss of appetite is a problem unless you're already at your goal-weight. Ketosis can cause nausea until you get used to it, and it can take more than three weeks to become fully adapted. Eating in... (more)

If you want more fiber, get it from paleo sources, like vegetables, fruits, sweet potatoes, and tubers. Beans contain fiber that is very difficult for humans to digest, and edamame contains those yucky phytoestrogens, which you want less of,... (more)
