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)

Sorry, have to rant: so after 32 years of sleeping like crap, this year I FINALLY figured out how to cure my sleeping problems. One of the most helpful tips I got from someone on paleohacks was to make sure I was eating enough carbs at dinner... (more)

I sympathize with the food intolerances and unforgiving routines some people end up with on paleo and I think it's reasonable to make some health compromises in order to not have everything in the world make you sick. On the other hand, you said... (more)

What are your thoughts about Paul Jaminet and Shou-Ching Jaminet's new book? Does it offer new insights, or is it more oriented towards the health 'beginners'? Recently, I bought the book of Dr. Natasha Campbell???McBride, and although I read a... (more)

I've read about 20 books on diet and nutrition and PHD is the only one I immediately read twice. It remains the best book I've read on the subject and the only one that I recommend to friends. I don't think it's geared towards beginners.

My Story: After 2 years of pretty strict Paleo (with an additional emphasis on low to no carbs) I can say that my story is a successful one. 120 lbs lost, from a 50" to a 36" waist, energy, vastly improved blood numbers, the whole 9 yards. I... (more)

I came to Paleo 1.5 years ago because of gut issues. During that time, I've healed a great deat. I experimented and did ok in ketosis, but I'm doing best up to 75-80 gr of NET carbs per day, which is pretty low carb. I can do up to 100-120 gr... (more)

I have been eating a mostly paleo diet for over a year now, but lately I've been thinking more and more about evolution, and whether we should evolve the idea of paleo to move past the paleolithic era and into the modern era. Humans have been... (more)

20 generations are nothing on an evolutionary timescale. How sure are you that all of your 1048576 potential ancestors ate only rice and beans? You'd be surprised how many of them didn't.

I am interested in what people are having success with? Please, no short-term anecdotes- I want to hear what has been working consistently for you for at least 6 months time. I appreciate your input!

Alligator, I don't think you will actually learn much from this question, only because every one is unique and what works for one person often will not work for the next. However, that is really usually only the case when it comes to specifics,... (more)

Experimenting with the perfect health Diet. I`m going to buy the edited book, but it's not out before December. Anyone who knows what supplements they recommend and why?

We'll have the recommended supplements page, which Todd linked, updated in a few days with the recommendations from the new book.

You should ask on the Q&A section of the Perfect Health Diet site -- Paul himself is very good about answering reader queries.

Ok, so after reading the PHD book a year ago and after reading Chris Kressers blog, I stopped taking supplementary fish oil. From what I remember, Paul Jaminet even said that there is no actual study that supports the use of fish oil, only real... (more)

Oh, I'm sure that if you did a pubmed search you'd find all sorts of studies "supporting" fish oil. This NIH article uses the words "likely effective" and "possibly effective" for a variety of conditions ... though that's not exactly high praise.... (more)

I came across Paul Jaminet's Perfect Health Diet and it seems to make a lot of sense. Is there a consensus around here for diet overall? It seems to be a pretty solid approach.

There is far more consensus than there isn't. Most of the lack of consensus is around just how many carbs and what form should they be, but the debate is friendly and earnest, and the answer often seems to boil down to tailoring to individual... (more)

In The Perfect Health Diet, the authors list white rice as a safe starch. I have began experimenting with soaking then cooking white rice as I run better on more carbs. Has anyone tried adding some rice in their diet? If so, how did you react?... (more)

I feel that if you're active and need safe starches, white rice is about the safest there is. The Okinawans have about the healthiest diet and longest life span. Lots of fatty meat. A little protein and some starch, mostly rice. I personally felt... (more)
