By this, I mean apples, bananas, almonds....things that have either a higher suger content or Omega-6 content. I do CrossFit 4-5 days/week, and I eat either an apple or a banana a day, along with about 20 almonds. So, is moderation meaning... (more)

"Moderation" means something different to every person. I strongly hate hearing people say "Everything in moderation ...", because it doesn't mean anything. It makes me ask, "Okay then, how much is a moderate amount of cigarettes? Heroine?" I... (more)

Robert Lustigs' talk pissed me off the other day. I kept having flashbacks to him saying that fructose is basically "ethanol without the buzz." And then I read someone on this site saying, "My personal opinion is that there is no obesity without... (more)

Aragon says fructose is just dandy up to 100g a day. Ingest that much and report back with your TGs. NHANES doesn't tell you how much fructose the obese consume, it gives some mean or median. It's not the fructose that's bad, it's the uric... (more)

I've spent a few weeks now with this cycle of bingeing on grains and sweets. I go a couple days eating well, then I pig out on unhealthy foods like cookies or anything I can find. Before paleo, I was slightly bulemic (binge-starve), but I had that... (more)

Why do you want to be moderate in your approach? Personally, it sounds like you have an extreme issue, and trying to solve it with a half measure is verbatim "faileo", and yes, you will fail. While there are many differences in what "Paleo" is,... (more)

You might check out the NetFlix movie Pururambo. There are also youtube videos like this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5aV_850nzv4 which I have not actually watched. (Unfortunately the youtube version of Pururambo is in a language that... (more)

I agree with most of that. Some people take Paleo TOO FAR when they start talking about not bathing and all. I use commercial soaps, makeups and things (mostly Lush, Tom's of Maine, and Bare Minerals, so a little better than conventional but it... (more)

Hi, If someone votes you down or you lose reputation because of something you've said either due to incorrect information or being off topic etc, how do we know why? While I totally agree that the voting should be anonymous, it might be helpful... (more)

As I have moved to paleo, which can be seen as extreme by non-Paleos, people keep banging on about all things in moderation. You know, "live a little" "everything in moderation" etc. It's only taken me 34 years but I realise I cannot do... (more)

I have an idea for a Paleo/Primal based Q&A website that will get around this problem. My site is to be called Jeopardy Paleo Hacks. People can post statements, then all of the answers must be in the form of a question. I am pretty... (more)
