Hey all, I recently started the paleo diet and things are going well. I have never been a fish eater, as I despise the smell and taste of it all. Should I be taking a fish oil supplement? I never have and am unsure of the benefits but I figured... (more)

I'm a big proponent of seafood. Perhaps you just need to learn a few recipes that dial back that fishiness and get it a little more palatable. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=feIqYphLb5I (more)

If you're not sure what that is, here's a wikipedia article on it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supertaster My boyfriend has the high end extreme of this, and some of it I believe is in his mind. He finds Green Beans to be the worst (next to... (more)

Popping back in to say THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to nyraphe for posting this topic!! I did some poking around online and found there is a simple scientific test to confirm whether or not you are a supertaster. Since I work at a middle... (more)

My youngest is the pickiest eater I have ever met. He has no more than 5 foods/meals he will eat, none of which are very healthy, and will only drink apple juice and chocolate milk. We went on vacation a few weeks ago and we almost had to take... (more)

Peer pressure can be a wonderful thing. Incentives also work. To add some more info. First, my wife and kids are not "paleo", but because I do the cooking, they are probably 70% - 80% just based on what they are fed. Being too... (more)

I know vitamin D and K2 can get in through the skin, so it ought to have at least a partially good effect. I don't know about A. You might go check with the Peatarians on this one. In order for it to absorb well, it needs to be put on areas... (more)

I am a 5'4", 200 lb., size 12 female and former collegiate athlete. I've looked at going Paleo for weight loss and other benefits, and would love to start -- except, my husband eats pretty much only grains. He doesn't like beef (that isn't a... (more)

I'm about to start Paleo tomorrow- I'm doing an exploratory phase of 30 days to see how my body reacts and if I notice any improvement. On top of that, I'll be surrounded by a bunch of people from carb vacuum cleaners to vegeterians to people who... (more)

As a super picky eater myself, I'd love to add some thoughts. 1) I'd make her some bone broth. Would she be willing to eat beef broth, made from lots of vegetables + marrow bones? That way, she'll receive loads of benefits from the beef and the... (more)

I am one of the pickiest eaters I know. If pressed it is a taste thing, but mainly a texture thing - I can actually list the foods I will eat if someone asks because the list just isn't that long. There are a ton of common things I have never... (more)

I'm dairy free, nut free, almost fruit free paleo. I'm in a situation where I have to eat out tonight and the place is Buffalo Wild wings. Not ideal but I have to make due. I'll get to eat the next day so if I don't end up eating that much its not... (more)

Seriously just 1 meal? Let it go, and why IF? Just let it slide, your body is not dumb and helpless, it will take care of itself. Like me and my Shawarma lunches once a month doesn't kill me. I am learning not to be obsessive with food, just be... (more)

Since going Paleo I offered to cook all my family meals to help them stick to the diet. At first it was great but now my 11 year old sister constantly refuses meals, saying she doesn't like pork or steak or fat. This has made me very worried to... (more)

It makes sense that your kiddo wants fruit. Breast milk is high fat, high sugar, low protein, and that particular nutrient combo is just what our little people need until at least age five or six. Hunter-gatherers were able to do that by... (more)

Yeah, he sounds like he's doing great to me. Try making the dishes you usually do, but cutting down on the legume or grain content or replacing them with proteins. Look up some traditional Spanish recipes involving seafood or meat yourself, and... (more)

If you really want to please him you'll probably have to cook to his taste rather than yours. Use the veggies he likes, allow him to season to his taste (you need a certain amount of sodium and his needs may well be higher than yours). I really... (more)

I've been on paleo for a couple months now, more or less, and I've got a problem. I'm a terribly picky eater when it comes to meat. I hate seafood. I hate beef, except for the uncured hot dogs I sometimes buy, which don't taste or feel like ground... (more)
