I don't believe in the 80/20 rule, I think it is best to be 100% paleo. After being paleo for a while you won't have any cravings. Although that's not to say you can't have any treats every now and then, just make sure they're not too non-paleo,... (more)

I think this rule is best interpreted as strive for 100% - but if you slip up every once in a while don't beat yourself up over it!

From the book "Mastering Leptin" come these five rules for losing weight and/or managing other hormonal issues: Rule 1: Never eat after dinner. Allow eleven to twelve hours between dinner and breakfast. Never go to bed on a full stomach.... (more)

It sure makes sense to me, a skinny person who is oversensitive if anything to leptin (had problems for years with low appetite). I've had the best weight gain results doing almost the exact opposite (eating right before bed, eating giant meals... (more)

i want to do paleo to be healthier and gain weight in better places (I hear a lot of women say their body composition changed). Obviously, no chips or processed carbs, but since I'm not trying to lose weight I don't think all the "rules" apply to... (more)

I really think you should check out some resources other than PaleoHacks for a Paleo101 course. There are so many to check out - Whole9 The Clothes Make The Girl These are very good, I think. There are many print resources as well that are... (more)

It seems like there are a lot of vitamins that work well together, and some don't work well if you don't have another vitamin. Which vitamins/supplements work together, and which ones can I take separate from each other? Is there a general... (more)
