I just sleep on a yoga mat. I got it for $20 at Target. Then again, I live in Miami so the temperature of the floor is never an issue (in summer I sleep directly on the floor to take advantage of the cooler temp).

You may be eating more calories, or low carb does not suit you - especially if you are doing a lot of training. Try paleo with more carbs and less fat and see how you feel / train etc

Are you heel-striking? A lot of us do it while running simply because it's the kinesiology we learned as thick-soled-shoe-wearing infants. We were forced to adapt this awkward gait because of constrained anatomy. Evolutionarily, our feet were... (more)

I think it depends on your personality. I am not very good at gradually getting into anything, I almost always have to jump in feet first or cut something cold turkey to be successful. What has worked for you in the past? If you do want to go... (more)

I don't think it's a fat adaption thing if you've been eating paleo for a couple years. It may relate to bile production. Have you had any blood work done? You may have elevated liver enzymes or bilirubin.

"Paleo" doesn't have to mean "no carbs". Try having a sweet potato or a bit of white rice shortly before your workouts. If you're lifting, those carbs will be put to good use and not be stored as fat. I'm in a similar situation to yours. I lift 3... (more)

I agree that your body very well could have been slightly malnourished as a vegetarian, and that you have reached a more preferred homeostasis. As far as exercising more, it probably won't hurt, but without further info, can't say for sure. What... (more)

I feel like I've been exactly here. I've tried upping the fat and upping the carbs. Finally, what I found works for me is upping the protein. I eat about 1-1.2 grams per pound of actual body weight, and since I'm in base training right now and... (more)
