The best diet is run ten miles a day and eat as much as you wish.

My wife and I will be going on vacation next month and wanted to look slimmer. We researched, and decided we'd like to try Paleo for 30 days. We're about 9 days in and still in the "detox" phase. I seem to be taking longer to clean my body out... (more)

Just starting Paleo. How many times a day do you typically eat? I am used to eating 6 times a day, 3 meals and 3 snacks. I am not sure about eating high fat 6 times a day. Help please!

Eat when you are hungry. Eat as much as you want. I used to eat the way you describe. Measuring and counting. LOL Now, I eat twice a day, as much as I want. Your body will adjust when you get off the carb merry-go-round.

I highly suggest buying a scale... I bought one pretty cheap at Target... it makes measuring a whole lot easier, and over time you'll get good at eyeballing how many grams are in a serving.

The only thing that's going to make a difference is if you create a caloric deficit. Low carb can help because it tends to be high satiety, but a lot of people never fully adjust to it. Plus, it's really easy to overshoot calorie-wise with a... (more)

I cannot believe one can eat too much pumpkin. There are paleo populations who eat 60% calories in sweet potatoes, nutritionally very similar to pumpkin, and they have no diseases of civilization. I think you are doing very well.
