Ok so this might be a bit long. I'll try to sum it up lol. If you read this all I appreciate it. OK so it started off last year when my mom suggested for me the paleo diet because I could not lose weight and thought I was eating healthy... (more)
In your opinion. Obviously everyone has a different interpretation as to what average/overweight looks like, but let's try to keep the semantics to a minimum. I know we shouldn't talk about a women's weight, but screw social constructs, I want... (more)
Yes, she is fat. This is not an opinion, it's a fact. Search Google Images for yourself.Of course, that doesn't make her a bad person. But, she is grossly overweight.
Hey everyone, As I mentioned in my previous post I haven't been able to run lately due to shin splints (upping my mileage too quickly - not an issue with my shoes, gait or footfall) and I've been without a good run in two weeks. I've been running... (more)

I am still trying to begin to adjust to the paleo lifestyle but I am not sure if I will see the results that I am 'promised'. It seems a bit too good to be true that I can eat so much fat and not gain weight... In saying that, my question is, has... (more)
I find a lot of paleo is use dogma and fear mongering. Grains/carbs are not the evil they are made out to be. Any food becomes evil when you abuse it. Hence, if you look at Sisson, he used to pound grains WAY in excess all day long- so now he... (more)
I'm 21, 5'11, 205 lbs and male. I'm lucky if I get 1800-2000 calories a day. And this has wreaked havoc on my body. I've had hypothyroid and testosterone issues since June, and I've posted about it before (Trying to find the link). I'm having... (more)
I think Rippetoe's youtube videos are highly informative, but I'm not sure doing squats 3 days a week is a great idea for everyone. Particularly if they're under eating.
Hello everybody ! I decided to scrub my cast iron after it got some rust on it. After a vigirous rub, spots appeared. ImageShack album Any idea what the silver dots are ? They seem like little cracks. Thank you for your time and help ! (more)
Hi there, I was wondering how easy it is for everyone to maintain their weight. I have been losing weight slowly for the last 2 years, and now that the finish line is clear on the horizon, I am terrified at the prospect of maintenance. Now the... (more)
Do you drink cream? Saute your meals with heaps of butter? Eat tons of starch? Two pounds of meat a day? Maintaining my weight is starting to become a hassle. How do you guys do it?
I eat plants and animals until i'm full 1-2x/day.
Hello everyone, I have had a lot of input from doctors and other dieticians/nutritionists and I realize that the wonderful community of Paleo Hacks probably should have been my first place to go, but alas, after all of what I have done, I am... (more)
I am very happy that today marks 30 days of my paleo challenge and I'm not going anywhere! This is too easy, too helpful and too flexible to be anything but a lifestyle (not a diet). I feel like this is a way of eating that I can do for the rest... (more)
People who have lost quite a lot of weight on paleo - what have you done with your eating after the weight loss? I'm 48, 5'5", female, post-menopausal and fairly sedentary so far. I started paleo in Feb, and until the last couple of weeks I've... (more)
I think the maintenance calorie discussion as well as looking for optimal guidelines can be frustrating, since everybody has a different body type, metabolism etc. There probably isn't a clear cut "bodyweight multiple" that would work for... (more)
So I asked a question the other day about being hungry after I ate, I got a bunch of great answers and the advice worked. I already love this site. Anyways, so I know that I am really green about eating paleo but where can I find advice on how... (more)
I'm a paleo newbie and am hoping someone out there might be able to help me... Having gone almost fully paleo for the past 2 months, I find that I'm having a hard time to keep my weight on. I don't need to lose weight and in fact, I always have... (more)
