Ketosis. Who's tried it? At what level? (Deep ketosis with minimal carbs, or 50g-100g?) Has anyone tried it with IF? (Intermittent Fasting) If you have, what are your macro levels? Did you have any side effects? (Body odor, Thirst, Sweet... (more)
I have been on the Paleo plan for 21 days. To date I do not have more energy but I do have consistent nausea and frequent severe headaches. I am prone to migraines and have had four major migraines in these 21 days combine with a continuous log... (more)
Hi hackers, actually I'm allergic to dairy, but I figured out ghee is fine. I was so happy about it that I virtually drowned my food in it. But now my hands are cold all the time and I feel really lethargic. Suppose it's not the traces of dairy... (more)
If I supplement vitamin D in the morning, that night I will invariably wake multiple times from disturbing dreams, accompanied by foggy head, dry mouth, and general sense of unease. This is from two different Vitamin D supplements I've tried ---... (more)
I've been on the paleo diet for a few months. I used to eat a lot of sugar and have stopped that completely. I've seen good results. I no longer get headaches. I sleep better. I've lost a little weight, but nothing dramatic (I wasn't that fat... (more)

It think it says on the jar that I can safely consume 1-4 tablespoons in a day. Can I consume more if wanted? Would there be any side effects of consuming too much?
Well, it's good to start with a small amount and work your way up...coconut oil has strong antibacterial/antifungul properties, and will cause uncomfortable die off reactions if too much is taken too soon. Sally Fallon and Mary Enig recommend... (more)

Are you aware of the process of removing natural gas from the Marcellus Shale and other shale beds here in the U.S. called Hydraulic Fracturing, or colloquially Fracking? I'm going to try to stay as a-political as possible here. I don't want to... (more)
This paleo caper is a crock. After a number of months, I have barely lost any weight at all, past an initial few kg. Ok, so I wasn't so worried about this initially, since I didn't really have much to lose, and that wasn't the primary reason for... (more)
Mono-unsaturated fatty acids (MUFA) have been pushed by dieticians for cardiovascular benefits as well as weight loss. The conventional approach is to replace saturated fatty acids (SAFA) with MUFA in the diet. Since modern paleos are presumably... (more)
And how do we address and prevent them? Almost anything taken to a ridiculous extreme is bad for you. Problem is, a paleo approach is ridiculously extreme from the SAD-conditioned point of view, so it can be difficult for newcomers to use good... (more)
I've been following a strict paleo diet for the last three weeks - Whole30-style, zero exceptions (so zero grains, legumes, or dairy), with very minimal fruit/sweet potato intake. Lots of things are better, but there is one strange side effect... (more)
I keep seeing people in different places suggest that nuts are inflammatory due to their omega 6 content. I don't eat large amounts of nuts but they are a regular part of my diet. Does anyone have any evidence or experience that eating nuts is... (more)

I had this happening and it turned out my bladder wasn't emptying fully. I also had some dribbling at night (a 25 year old female). I had to go to the ER a few times to get a catheter to drain everything. Urologist and neurologists had no idea why... (more)
I've read that milk products cause excessive mucus production. In my case, I am loathe to give up butter, heavy cream, and hard cheeses (parmesan! cheddar!) but I wonder if this might be for the best in terms of alleviating excess mucus. Has... (more)
I know there is some discussion on over-consumption of protein and how it is utilized as glucose, so over-consuming of protein is not necessarily a bad thing. But at what point is over-consuming fat (of course good fats) a bad thing? I assume... (more)
I started paleo because I got a blood panel that had my HDL at 28. After 6 weeks I had a biometric test done for an insurance company and they measured me at 18. I am very lo carb on the paleo and only non-paleo I have is coffee with half+half... (more)
I've been mostly paleo for about 6 months now- not perfectly so- probably not consuming a perfect balance omega 3/6's, for example. Over that time I've had GI issues at least 3 times. Has anyone else had this problem? What's the cause? Here are... (more)

I have been eating Primal/Paleo for 5/6 weeks now. I have been suffering from extremely dry, sore, cracked lips since I started and it is really starting to get me down. It has even started to migrate to above/below my lips and looks very red... (more)
