Not worth the risk, not worth the price. Listen to your friends and family on this. Do you go through your day noticing every single minor flaw in other peoples appearance?* They don't do that with you either. Anyone who does is too shallow to... (more)

A lot of people coming to paleo were restricting their meat/fat consumption and really go to town on it for awhile. I was a veg head for so long that I felt amazing when I ate heavy protein at every meal. Well, years later I've gotten my fill and... (more)

Thanks for the topic!  I've also reintroduced meats after being a vegetarian, but still find myself gravitating to more veggie-heavy meals.  I really love all kinds of greens, roasted with butter or olive oil.  Sweet potato is... (more)

Hi @sunnyla1978! The corn in them makes them a non-paleo treat.  But you could use it as a cheat meal if you need a cheat meal and are paleo and go by the 80/20 rule. Personally I use the 95/5 rule, meaning I try to eat paleo 100 percent of... (more)

When it comes to IGF-1 the lower the better, if you are mainly focused on health. Low IGF-1 levels promote longevity by inhibiting ageing and inhibiting cancer growth.

Our bodies only synthesize things they *need*, otherwise it's a waste of energy. There are things we need but cannot synthesize.  So in terms of fats… we need omega-3 and omega-6 long chain fats, we cannot synthesize these,... (more)

Stressing out about drinking Tang a few time a year is likely worse for you then just enjoying it a few time a year. Just my two cents.
