I want to be the healthiest I can possibly be, and look the best I can - what foods would you recommend I eat/what should my diet consist of?

For starters I recommend you eat at home, stay away from restaurants and so called health food stores. Majority of that stuff is absolute garbage. Control everything you put in your body. Eat like our prehistoric ancestors did, EAT LIKE A... (more)

I know that we hold onto the fat if we are stressed and I am. I joined Crossfit a couple of weeks ago. In following Paleo and Crossfit will I still lose the inches even though I live a life of stress or am I doomed to hold onto it all? Thanks (more)

Honestly, it sounds like you need to learn to "let go" in more than one way. Yes, you'll likely continue to lose some weight, if you eat right and exercise. However, what are you doing to yourself? Stress ruins life - get a handle on that first,... (more)

Hard to say anything with high certainty about paleolithic peoples. They were probably as diverse as recent hunter-gatherers, who have proven to be 100% animal to nearly 0% animal, arguably all paleo. I think at times some versions of paleo are a... (more)

How much food variety do you think is natural for humans to get? Did most of our ancestors, most of which probably lived in fairly rich regions of the world, know of and eat dozens and dozens of types of foods? Or do you think they mostly... (more)

local biodiversity is vast, along with seasonal variations. Look around (assuming you're in the northern hemisphere) when spring hits and take note of the diversity of plants that pop up, and how many produce fruit, seeds or nuts by fall. And... (more)

Surely the definition of what a paleolithic/evolutionary diet is one that our ancestors ate during our species evolution. However working out what they ate is not a simple task. Some types of evidence survive better than others. Plant foods rarely... (more)

I definitely think people have a simplistic view of paleolithic diets. There's a world of difference between "NEVER consumed EVER" and "was not a staple or evolutionarily significant food/not optimal/not necessary/potentially damaging". I also... (more)

My local grocery store carries dried veggie chips as a store brand (Publix.) Ingredients seem pretty benign (Squash, Carrots, Taro, Green Beans, salt.) Beyond the oil, any issues with dried veggies?

only that most of those vegies are all starchy/sugary vegetables and the oil is probably some type of processed vegetable oil. I'd rate those about the same as any other "chip"

I'm trying to find a good nutrition certification that can really get to the core of the Paleo lifestyle. I have heard Robb Wolf is great but his website doesn't show any upcoming events. Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas for alternatives? (more)

How necessary is exercise in living a paleo lifestyle? Is it sufficient to simply eat paleo foods or are there greater benefits by adding short intense exercise sessions into daily life?

Necessary. Diet is absolutely essential but no one ever got healthy by sitting around doing nothing.
