I'm brand new to paleo - 10 days in - and I love it, but I'm having difficulty eating enough fat (and I never thought I'd be saying that in my life). I have a sneaking suspicion that while my carbs are good, my protein to fat ratio is too... (more)
I train soldiers and we are in the field for days at a time. It's very difficult, especially in the summer when ice is not always available, to pack things to eat. Most of the guys eat canned meats or tuna(which I hate)but I want to stick to my... (more)

I've been reading a bunch of conflicting information on Intermittent Fasting - paleoforwomen.com says that it might not be so great for women... Others say it's amazing. Am I over-thinking this? Mostly I try to live instinctually, meaning, if... (more)
Hey all! First time poster here :) Love this community, btw. :) Been following for a while. Anyway, I had a question (obviously :)). I eat paleo and have 3 square meals a day and occasionally do snack. I'm a student and always eat before class... (more)
If I eat 3500 calories a day would a higher meal frequency be healthier than a lower one? Say, 2 meals of 1000 calories and one meal of 1500 calories vs 6 meals of about 580 calories. I often hear large meals digest slower, so they make you... (more)
Been fairly "low-carb" for a long, long time and I've decided to experiment with low-fat, high carb, moderate protein for a few weeks. I've got an huge endurance race in two weeks, I'm not in ketosis.. so I figure what the hell. My last two days... (more)

Just bought some quail eggs at this Filipino market down the street from my house and I usually just eat them hard-boiled but I want some weird, unique, delicious-sounding ideas from you guys. I'm not looking for "just eat them how you would... (more)
I treat quail eggs the same as I do other eggs as they taste so similar to those from a chicken. They're just... eggs to me with a very high cuteness level. This is the salad that I last made utilizing them: 4 quail eggs 1 tablespoon champagne... (more)
I'm still kind of new to this and trying to get a routine going here. What would be a good sample for the day, just like the meal staples? As in something like, an omelette for breakfast, than an animal protein for lunch, and another animal... (more)
