I went Paleo a few months ago and had a bad experince with it because I didn't eat enough proteins, fish, or meat, I basically just cut the grains and carbs and I was closer to being a vegan than anything. I'm a runner and I lost all my eneergy... (more)

Live with your parents (and save money, go to school etc as long as possible). Ask your mom if she would rather you be pregnant or paleo???

as a woman, you should fit in some weight lifting and HIIT to maintain major muscle. You can buy cardio CD's online and download them onto your computer from Amazon or just buy them and recieve them in the mail I did a demo from Veena Bidasha and... (more)

Ever since I was 11, I have been very interested in health/diet. Now, 3 years later, I have noticed that my mom, who knows almost nothing about health or diet, has been (possibly subconsciously) following my lead. All through the stages of... (more)

Rose, yes your needs are different. In a way. You both need the same basic foods. However, you are still at a very active growing time of life, where you can get away with (maybe even need) some extra calories (especially carbs) that you... (more)

It seems like so many people I speak to in my age group (I'm 25) are foregoing breast feeding for their newborns and opting for bottle feeding instead. This of course does not apply to people who cannot breastfeed for whatever reason. It seems... (more)

My mom is 57 years old, about 5' tall, and weighs 123. Both of us have been Paleo for about 5 months now, and we absolutely love it! BUT she has only lost 5 lbs (now granted her body fat is at 22%). I, on the other hand have lost 35 lbs (but c'mon... (more)

My mom also has a reduced need for calories (she is 60, 5'2"). I think it has something to do with being post-menopausal. Her weight is a lot heavier than when she is young, but she looks and feels great. (She used to weigh 105, now hovers... (more)

So my parents know I am Paleo, but they really don't get it. They are older and were just brought up in a different generation. I don't by any means try to talk them into doing it, but this is the issue. They watch my son once a week, so to... (more)

You could try to have a backup in case she happens to put a non-paleo ingredient in the meal. I also like the idea to doing a little shopping for your mom. Buy her some almond meal to use instead of breadcrumbs. Bring some homemade mayo, if... (more)

Does processed chicken slice cause cancer? i heard it on a radio talk show

This? That's: chicken, corn by products, conditioners, and preservatives. Avoid this product. "It directly causes cancer" would be a stretch, but there's pretty much nothing good going on with this food product. Most of the "OMG MEAT WILL KILL... (more)

I've never had much luck getting my mother to improve her eating habits. She still likes to claim that whole wheat pasta and hummus are examples of eating well.../facepalm. Recently her own mother's health is declining and she's frustrated that... (more)

Once you've persuaded her to try this, your job is basically done other than to answer questions and share enthusiasm. For bloodwork, you can have her write down the tests you mentioned as questions to discuss with her doctor, but... (more)

So my mom's bloodwork came in, and her cholesterol is atrociously high by any metric. She acknowledges this, and would like to lose weight, something which she has struggled with for years. She expressed interest in paleo diet after my success... (more)

First, the goal is to get through the first week then you and your mom should talk about the "highs and lows" and agree on a plan for week 2. EXERCISE: Walk at her comfortable pace until she starts to feel just a bit tired. Rest for 2 minutes,... (more)

My mother is on the heavy side but not morbidly obese. She probably needs to loose 30 or 40 pounds. She recently went to the doctor and they did a bunch of tests. She is pre-diabetic, apparently has a "relatively fast" metabolism (they did a test... (more)

In addition to the good advice re: paleo/lc books dealing diabetes, such as those of Dr. Richard Bernstein, perhaps you could persuade her to simply TRUST you enough to follow one of these plans, to the letter, for a month, and get blood work... (more)

Background: My mom lost about 30 lbs over a year ago using the "Carbohydrate addict's diet" but has since gained some back (maybe 10 lbs?) She works at home, and is not paleo but not all too horrible. She's 56, and she goes on walks most days... (more)

I'd go with the primal fitness thing you pointed out....its acually not 100 pages for the strength portion of body weight exercise. That parts like 10 pages (well maybe more, but most of its skimmable).

I finally convinced my Mother to go on a Paleo diet, which is awesome. I'm really hoping it'll make her feel better, lose weight, and stay off of unhealthy processed foods. However, this still leaves a few things unchecked. Her stats: 5'... (more)

Diet, diet, diet. Don't worry about any exercise program now. Get her diet dialed in. After her metabolism normalized she may start to feel like being active then she can start to think about walking and then start to work on crossfit-like... (more)
