I recently had a heart monitor (Holtor Monitor) for 48 hours issued by my GP after a recent dizzy spell that resulted in fainting. My test results came back as technically "normal", but my GP was a little alarmed that my heart rate varied... (more)

Hey Everyone, I am constantly amazed by the number of posts where people go through laundry lists of symptoms/ailments and ask if Paleo diet would help, or who are already following a Paleo diet but want to tweak things to help improve/reverse... (more)

it's wrong to think that just because people have to come paleo means that they've NEVER tried anything to fix their problems. i've been trying for 6 damn years to fix my digestive order and i had never heard of paleo until this past year. hence,... (more)

So I think Paleo has ruined me. I mean, I was annoying before (I've always been a cynical, skeptical SOB), but my friends and family may disown me at this point. And it's not just because of Paleo topics. I don't talk about that much anymore... (more)

What's normal? Eating tons of high fructose corn syrup? Taking a cab, or driving for anything further away than 3 blocks? Fooling yourself into thinking that a bowl of cheerios and a can of diet soda is a healthy breakfast, so as to enrich... (more)

I can relate with your frustrations! I will say though...the same thoughts have led me recently to the whole weight set-point issue. I KNOW I naturally gravitate to a certain weight. People think I look slender at this weight even though it's... (more)

On a rare occasion (like the Super Bowl...or a very large party at our house), I'll break out some organic blue corn chips. Since I'm VLC, they're not really an option for me, but I think it gives my husband a dose of "OK, we're not complete... (more)

If you order lamb there is a 75% chance it's imported and thus not CAFO since the major exporter of lamb is New Zealand, which pastures its lamb. Either way, for future reference based on my agricultural experience, here are the most wretched... (more)

The title explains it all, I guess. I know that this question will probably not get an affirmative answer, because of the nature of this great website: it is for people looking for answers, and for people giving answers. Why do I ask? Before the... (more)
