Herxheimer reactions are real things, but it's not likely you're experiencing one.  Any drastic change has the potenial to cause unpleasantness.

I tend to be a little shy about using olive oil due omega 6 being about 9% so I worry I'll mess my 6n:3n ratio if I go over board. I tend use coconut oil more freely.

Matt_11 0 · October 06, 2014 at 10:43 PM

Olive oil is the only oil I use. 10% PUFA, 10:1 omega-6:omega-3… perfect? I think so!  Usually 3-4 tbsp a day.

How many calories? The carbs are a bit high for low-carb, I mean 100g a day is like 4 bananas. You have three choices: 1. cut the carbs down, to less than 50g/day, or 2. cut calories (eat less, quit snacking, or skip a meal if you're not hungry),... (more)

I am seriously broke but have major health issues that need to be addressed. I've been recommended to start living paleo.  I want to see if I can get a rank order of what should you absolutely do from 1st all the way down.

Although that is a pretty BIG question, here's a little bit of advice that will hopefully be helpful. When starting a paleo diet, it's best to begin with the absolute basics rather than load up on too much info, then you can of course learn more... (more)

Not to mention some of the zombie-like posters who post somewhat on-topic, but in terrible, barely comprehensible English (SEO from who knows where I guess!)
