Paleo-friendly News Article While I'm not always keen on Foxnews (I have it added to my Pulse so I can spy on the enemy), I was pleasantly surprised to wake up this morning and see this article. While it doesn't come out and say "Paleo" anywhere... (more)

Did anyone see the Rachael Ray segment of the "Virgin Diet"? What do you think about it?

Gertday 0 · February 01, 2014 4:09 PM

As previously mentioned, Virgin's issue with eggs is that many people are allergic to them. Eliminating these items from your diet temporarily, and, then reintroducing them will allow you to see if this is an issue for you. I spent years... (more)
