Before this closes.... In the broadest possible terms, I think men and women use paleo in different ways. Men tend to use it to justify the eating of more bacon, eggs, steak and all the other great stuff. Women tend to use it as an optimizing... (more)

A new drug is being promoted to help boost testosterone in older men. However, a Slate article argues lower testosterone is just a normal part of aging for men. I'm skeptical. I wonder if this happens less dramatically in men with a health diet... (more)

It’s true that testosterone begins to decline as men get older, typically at the rate of 1% every year, after the age of 30. Signs of low testosterone may include fatigue, poor metabolism, weak bones and muscles, low sex drive, extra flab, etc.... (more)

For any other men out there, have you had experience with a yeast infection? Has anyone had success or trouble while going Paleo? What would you recommend? It's been a while since I've been here and since I ate 100 percent paleo. I was doing Raw... (more)

Last year I got my first yeast infection. Ha, didn't know guys got them. It was after a course of antibiotics for a bug bite I got. I was at the beach when it started so I'm not sure if swimming in the ocean had anything to do with it. It was... (more)

So, I'm not super educated on all this... still learning, so bear w/me plz. I've heard/read that consumption of a lot of protein can increase testosterone levels. So, is this even true? If so, as a woman, should I be concerned? If so, about... (more)

Testosterone naturally produced by your own body is healthy for women, and can improve emotional well-being. Just don't use anabolic steroids and you'll be fine. If anything diet-wise, saturated fat consumption is associated with increased... (more)

Keep applying warm compresses to it as often as possible back to back to back to back. The goal is to get it to come to a 'head' and burst, then you can clean it and apply some antibiotic ointment. If that doesn't work, see if you can get to a... (more)

I just found this very cool show on Netflicks. This is as close to paleo TV as I have ever seen. It follows two physicians from London as they go to remote places around the world to see what the people there eat, the state of their health, how... (more)

I've been eating Paleo for a few months. I've kept falling off the bandwagon though. I upped my fat intake. My mate also is paleo and said that men need higher carb intake. So I've added some carbs to my diet and it has worked wonders with... (more)

My opinion is that you should experiment and see what allows you to look, feel and perform your best, to steal a phrase from Robb Wolf.

Something I've been wondering yet am unsure of how to phrase this question. It seems as though men who are on vegetarian or vegan diets are more emotional, less muscular and generally more effeminate in their body language. They get up in arms... (more)

Breastfeeding is embraced by traditional food communities as the best option for babies. Now Scientific American says, "Strange But True: Males Can Lactate". Lots of PaleoHacks threads on breastfeeding feature commentary from paleo guys... (more)

After reading the question on female body hair, it occurred to me that the matter of male facial hair is similarly rooted in culture. While there are certainly many women who find male facial hair attractive, it seems that the majority of women... (more)

IMHO I think unshaven men are far sexier. For example, look at this picture of Hugh Laurie, starring in BlackAdder. When I saw this in the 80's I did not even stop twice to look at him ;) Compare this with a shot of the very self same man,... (more)
