This is my 4th week eating paleo and I'm not seeing any weight loss. I'm not primarily doing it for weight loss but to be healthy I need to lose some weight. My stats... 5'9", female, 205lbs, measurements are 45-35-44 (only lost about half an... (more)
HELP. I am brand new. Overwhelmed. Trying to just start small with a 2 week menu plan, mainly dinners, and a shopping list. Budget is tight so ingredients that can make more than one meal are great. I've been trying to do this but I'm just... (more)
I am developing a freely available online resource that will provide detailed information of restaurant menu options/modifications and ingredients in the DC metro area. The idea is to conduct all the investigative work up front for the community... (more)
I've been reading a lot about nutritional ketosis. I am wondering what the benefits/disadvantages are and what sort of macronutrient ratios/diet plan would constitute the ketogenic diet.
Ketosis is just the metabolic pathway our body uses when deprived of dietary carbohydrates. We enter ketosis any time we skip a meal, or just during a fast. Fun fact: Without the ketosis pathway, people would die from starvation between 7 and 10... (more)
I am a major newbie...as in today is my first day. Basically, I have decided to turn to a paleo lifestyle because I want to lose weight, feel better about myself, and to prepare my body to get pregnant. When I have children I want to teach them... (more)
Have you ever managed to get a food place to switch from margerine to butter, cage to pastured eggs etc? My local cafe is pretty trendy, they use fancy sourdough, redonkulous espresso, lots of handmade goodies, but there is a big tub of meadowlea... (more)
Seriously, the worst they can say is no. Be very friendly and casually say "heyyy... any chance you may offer butter as an option sometime instead of just margarine - maybe charge .50 or $1 more for the customer if they want it?" 1. You asked.... (more)

My husband and I will be traveling to San Diego in a few months and I'm starting to plan. Does anyone have experience with some great Paleo Friendly Restaurants in the area?
After 6 months in paleo I realized that I definitely need new impulses and ideas for paleo-recipes - I already own 3 paleo-recipe books, but I would like to know your daily dishes. So I thought we could start an idea-forum here. We don't need to... (more)
I'm going to a "meet your farmer" fundraiser for our buy fresh, buy local campaign. Here are the entree selections (all beef grass fed): Roasted Veal Roulade: wheat berries, mustard and beet greens over potato dauphines, Cada Dia cheddar Veal... (more)
In my circle of friends and family I am the only one, who eats paleo (I tried to explain the idea of the paleo diet to them, but they call me crazy... maybe, but I have a healthy lifestyle lol). Next month I am invited to a big birthday party... (more)
Hey all, So I've developed a paleo/PHD/Primal-based tool that uses an algorithm and tons of data to calculate the nutritional value of recipes, and will use that information to automatically plan a week's worth of meals for you. It will also,... (more)
I'm eating here tomorrow night and just curious, if you were faced with this menu, what would you order? http://origintoronto.com/menu It's not really the kind of place where I'd want to ask for a bunless burger, but I don't mind making a request... (more)
I'm trying to change the way I shop in order to change the way I eat (Safeway is 5 minutes away, so I'm currently an impulse buyer). What do you buy when you go in the market... looking for ideas.
Im a 42yr female, 176cm, 70 kg, bodyfat ca 23%. Lost 11 kg since Jan 2011 and still need to lose 4 more kgs but my weight loss has completely stalled. I began eating Paleo beginning of April (80%, still drinking 1-2 expresso a day and some... (more)
Hi everyone, Will be backpacking through the Sierra Range, 15 miles a day for 7 days. I'm backpacking light so very focused on calories/oz and on how to stay paleo while needing 3,000+ calories a day. Curious to hear your feedback... (more)
I am eating shrimp and crawfish and lots of steak and headed to the U2 concert tonight in Nashville......lowering my cortisol. What are you all getting into?
I accepted a "Royal Wedding" lunch invite ages ago, expecting to be able to navigate my way through the menu, finding something suitably Paleo, as I usually would. However, I've just been sent the fixed high tea menu, as below. Short of... (more)
A lot of us have talked about making our food for the next week ahead of time. It's a time and stress saver. I find it much easier to make good decisions about food when something yummy is waiting in the fridge for me. This week my Paleo make... (more)
Inspired by the eating out thread, I just wanted to check in and let any of my fellow Paleo family know about this supremely cost-effective Paleo Menu Hack for dining at Chipotle. I have something of a famous menu hack on my resume already,... (more)
Community co-op-type grocery store for grassfed meats, liver, bones for stew Trader Joe's for cheap wine, parmesan Reggiano, ground beef, Kerrygold butter, frozen wild-caught salmon, cod, halibut, and sole Costco for lamb and cheap cuts of meat... (more)
You're not at all unusual - in fact I find it perfectly consistent. The same mindset of resourcefulness and making the most of what you have (= healthy Paleo eating) has also ultimately led you to source well in your grocery shopping. Here's my... (more)
I'm curious about how consistent peoples' daily meals are. It seems like the Primal Blueprint camp is into colorful, varied paleo cooking experiments, while other paleo people are more about sticking to a few caveman staples. I eat 1.5-2lb of... (more)
