What is your philosophy of paleo based upon? It seems that many people try to figure out what cave men ate and eat the same things, or as close to it as they can. I see the cave man philosophy as a good theory that provides a base of how to... (more)

I'm not a reenactor and am looking for the optimal diet. For the most part though, I find the caveman diet to be the optimal diet. The one major exception might be vegetables. I try to eat tons of vegetables, many of which weren't around back... (more)

Vitamin D is a good anti inflammatory agent when 25(OH)D levels are raised to 50ng/ml 125nmol/l or above. Vitamin D requires MAGNESIUM to activate Calcitriol (hormonal form) so use that as well. If you think your digestive system is so... (more)

I am wondering, why some people can digest beans while others (like me, sad to say) cannot? I already understand that beans contain lectins, phytates and antinutrients that can cause gas, bloating etc. But some people seem to have no problems... (more)

Get outside. Our caveman friends saw lots of daylight; getting up at sunrise and going to sleep at sunset. Exposure to bright sunlight for 30 minutes a day either through sunlight or a light made for this, helps keep your internal clock set. This... (more)

Hi Scott, and welcome to Paleo and PaleoHacks! The simple and obvious solution is to try to eat more. Add a lot more fat when you are cooking (coconut oil, butter, lard/tallow/duck fat, etc.) and eat a lot of starches (white rice and potatoes).... (more)

In paleolithic times it would seem that there were no schools, media, and a myriad of other factors, which now (at times) attempt to close people's minds with respect to some subjects. Does that difference have an impact on your health? If so,... (more)

Yes. Positive people tend to get sick less than those who are negative (at least in my own social circles it seems). Among other reasons, this is probably true because your mindset affects your mood, which affects your actions, which affect how... (more)

I read someone on a fitness forum say that age 22 they couldn't do they same workout level they could at 20 due to aging. Is this right? Is there a loss of fitness between 20-22? Does the decline start that early?

Where I live it's difficult to find good quality fish, so my daily intake of omega3 is quite low. I mostly eat beef. My omega 3/6 ratio being not optimal, I wonder if it would be a good idea to supplement with Omega 3 ... What do you think ? (more)

Canned sardines are available everywhere. They are inexpensive but are high in w-3 and low in mercury and other heavy metals as they are low on the food chain. Just don't get the ones in soybean oil. http://www.brunswick.ca/ (more)

We use glass boxes for our lunch boxes. They are easy to wash and easy on the environment. I am sure that a few days of using aluminum foil will not hurt your food or the environment :)

Perfectly normal. No worries. On low carb you feed your gut bacteria less and hence produce less waste.

If you chronically overeat, then you will stall, or possibly gain. I still think calories count, but I think it's very hard to overeat regularly on paleo. One day I'm hungry, eat quite a bit, the next day I am not so hungry and eat less, so it... (more)

I don't know how Paleo it would be, but Athenian Gardens (there's a few locations I think) is the BEST greek restaurant. Their greek salad and gyros are amazing. I grew up on them, and go back as often as I can :-)
