many of you may be aware of the "shit girls say" youtube video that spawned dozens of knockoffs. there's a "shit vegans say," so i think there should be a "shit paleo people say." who's with me? i'll start: "its not a diet, its a lifestyle." (more)
I started Crossfitting in September. A couple of weeks beforehand, a Crossfitting friend who lives across the country told me to get as much of a head start on activity as I could do, advising that it would help me to be adjusted. I went out and... (more)
I am in the Navy and I fly a few times a week. I rarely get sick on flights anymore because I have found what food "works" for me. They just so happen to be super not Paleo. Peanut butter and boysenberry sandwich, wheat thins, pretzel sticks etc.... (more)
Nothing says you need to be paleo 24/7. You can always eat paleo on non flying days/outside flight times, and the things that settle your stomach during flying.
When I started eating Paleo, I began searching for any restaurants that are specifically aware of the Paleo diet and have a menu that caters to us. I couldn't really find anything in San Francisco (I was on a business trip there when I went fully... (more)
Sprained my low back (pain when bending and lifting, no swelling or warmth) and I'm wondering how to heal it (got a ski trip in 8days). NSAIDs? isn't inflammation healthy for acute injuries? staying paleo and upped vit D to 4000IUs/Day. Up Omega... (more)
Anyway, I've never been a "chocolate is better than sex" gal. And I'm still not. Sweet chocolate has been just "OK" to me for a long time. Is it my tastebuds resetting or something? I intended to have a piece, but ate the whole bar. No... (more)
Maca is supposed to be good for optimizing hormones. Chocolate is full of antioxidants. I read an article about three people aging from 118 to 121 and the one thing all 3 had in common? A chocolate addiction which ranged from daily to couple times... (more)
Whenever my boyfriend and I eat chicken, 1 hour later, we're still hungry. Even if we eat twice the amount than we would with beef/pork. The last time I placed an order at the butcher, I accidentally ordered too much chicken, and I know we're... (more)
I am not familiar with where people go get info on medical journals or legitimate studies on Aspartame. I am always firmly believed it was toxic and use to have severe headaches while using it as a teenager. unbenownst to be my parents had the... (more)
Title basically sums it up. I do not tolerate chicken eggs very well. I have tried eating just the yolk but they still seem to sit in my stomach/cause other gastrointestinal issues. Do you think there's a chance I might tolerate duck eggs or goose... (more)
The question: I've started noticing a curious correlation between eating--particularly breakfast and lunch--with feeling quite warm--enough that I sometimes want to to get in front of a fan to cool off. Don't feel "bad," just warm! It lasts... (more)
. . So yeah, I know several ways to cook regular cauliflower, and yes, I KNOW I can cook purple cauliflower in the same way. However, is there a recipe that is specifically meant for purple cabbage? I'd probably be eating... (more)
It was a head/throat/chest cold that kept moving around in different places. I supplemented 5,000 IU of vitamin D in the morning. I supplemented 1 gram of vitamin C 3 times a day. I drank plenty of water. I slept plenty. You would think that... (more)
I was heating up my lunch today and talking to a office mate from another floor and she asked me what I was bringing to our luncheon tomorrow. I told her I was bringing bacon wrapped dates and she jokingly said "You're not Paleo are you?" I... (more)
Easy question, do not think too much into it- which makes you feel best? Plant, Dairy or animal. I am not asking your lactose tolerance, nor am I asking what a PubMed search reflects the best fat to be or what some blogger says you need to... (more)
How can I cure a dust allergy? I already eat autoimmune paleo but am still stuffed up year round. Do conventional allergy shots work? Is there something I'm missing?
My dust allergy has reduced in intensity since I started avoiding histamine-generating foods. Google histamine intolerance for more info. Also, Vitamin C is a great antihistamine.
Hi all- I know there are many pages devoted to coconut oil, coconut milk, fats - I've read a lot but haven't found my exact answer. Please forgive me if I've missed relevant threads :) I have PCOS, lost about 20 pounds in about 6 months eating... (more)
I saw an ad saying "5 foods to NEVER Eat" and clicked on it, thinking it would talk about how awful saturated fats were, etc... Instead it showed a video that I took as being very paleo except for rice, quinea, and sprouted grains, which they... (more)
Many have had their lives changed after reading their first paleo book. It struck me today that despite this, I've never written a review for a paleo book. So I just wrote one for my favorite paleo book, Perfect Health Diet. Next up is Deep... (more)
I wrote a review for the Paleo Solution that got published in an ADA newsletter (a California branch). I'm actually surprised it got accepted but the woman I corresponded with was excited to read it.
"Comfortably Unaware explains, so clearly, how what we choose to eat has a direct impact on the health of Planet Earth: how modern agro-business and our thoughtless appetites are, quite literally, destroying the environment and the future of our... (more)
He just happens to be an animal rights zealot (meat=murder), as are most of his endorsers. That's one thing I give Campbell some credit for- it's clear he actually believes his diet is best and isn't just harping on about it because he wants a new... (more)
I've really been beating myself up this week. Paleo x 3 months, wt loss 14 #, now 123, and my back is "out"!. The question is, If I am on an "inflammatory diet" why am I so INFLAMMED??? When to the chiropractor 3 x this week and have had 2... (more)
When I lost weight, one of the things that happened during the weight loss was that the more I lost, the more muscle imbalances and kinetic chain issues began to show up. This may not apply to you but for myself and others, I believe this happens... (more)
