In the past year and a half my body has undergone some big changes. I had a bout of massive fibrocystic changes in my breasts, alongside low testosterone (Im a girl, but have 0). Up to this point I had been paleo for almost 3 years. I had gone... (more)
Does stress raise blood sugar? Does high blood sugar raise stress? Is there something that causes stress and high blood sugar? Or Is there no correlation between blood sugar and stress?
I am a 20 year old male. I started experiencing several problems a year ago, including very low HR, body temp, and BP along with constipation/bloating and several other neurological, metabolic and GI symptoms. We found that I had low T3,... (more)

I have a recurring problem with my tongue that comes up every time I start to get a bit run down. The tip and front part feels over- sensitive, and hurts almost like I've burnt it on something hot, which I haven't. I can also get ulcers (canker... (more)
What you described - it happens to my tongue when I have food that contains too much MSG. Glugging water throughout the day usually solves the problem in one to two days.
Oh, Boy. Here we go. Last year was awesome. With a 9-5 M-F job, I was at the gym 3-5x days /week , lost 10lbs, gained more in muscle, changed my habits, and was on a paleo-roll. Then I lost my job and caught pneumonia. When I final got a... (more)
Hi, I am eating Paleo (almost entirely pure, some bad carbs, no gluten) and I have had a tendency lately to wake up feeling really depressed and with anxiety about a lot of things I worry about. This feeling remains until I eat my breakfast... (more)
I've been on the paleo diet for almost 4 weeks now. I don't know my starting weight, but about 2 weeks ago I was 202 and a week ago I was 192.8. this morning, I was hovering around 194.8. For the past two weeks I've started trying to be more... (more)
Hey everyone!! So here's my issue. I'm attempting to build muscle after being sick and losing a great deal of it. So far I've only been able to gain fat, 3lbs in one week. Most of the fat gain is around my mid section. Not attractive. ... (more)
Hi. How do you continue to be happy and hopeful in your life about the future when there is stress? How to keep functioning well? Obviously, there are Paleo and eat well, sleep right, and we understand these stresses better, and they make us... (more)
Here's the article I quoted: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/08/25/technology/25brain.html?pagewanted=all What does everyone think about this? With the ubiquity of technology in our day and age I believe that this is something that deserves a very... (more)
Ok so I've been strictly paleo for a month and a day now, except for last night, when my demons had their way with me. I totally went off the rails, like TOTALLY. I think the end tally was something like: 2 magnum ice creams 2 drumstick ice... (more)
So in the past 7 months, I've slowly gained about 10 pounds. Incidentally, I started working at a restaurant 7 months ago, and while it may be easy to dismiss my weight gain as being related to being around awesome food every day, I'm tending... (more)
Hello, I know there are other questions about keeping weight on or gaining weight for skinny paleo folks. Mine is a bit more complex. My husband is 26 and suffering from a movement disorder called dystonia, and the doctors can't figure out... (more)
Hello! First I would like to start with a bit of history to give you all my current situation: I was physically active and seemingly in good shape until I was 13. From 13-15 I started having very small issues with eczema (inside of forearms),... (more)
I've suffered from daily fatigue for 15+ years. Its cause has been a complete mystery to me. But after going on a paleo/PHD diet for the past 4 months, I've had several week-long episodes where I've experienced normal energy levels -- no... (more)
Perhaps you're experiencing heightened levels of adrenaline while under stress.
Hey guys, Over a year ago I was told I had stage 3 adrenal fatigue. I didn't do anything about it because I had to many other things messing me up. I'm not even sure I believe in it, all I know is I can't handle stress and it messes my health... (more)
OK, I know there are dozens of GERD questions on the site, and a few asthma-related ones as well, but nothing else I've tried has worked, so I figured I'd give this a shot. In June, after about 18 months of eating Paleo, I started experiencing... (more)
Two part question! It seems that most people's appetite changes when under stress. I don't think binge eating or fasting is optimal, but our bodies or minds tend to go one way or the other as a reaction to higher-than-usual amounts of stress.... (more)
In periods of acute stress I have a tendency to lose appetite. I don't like to eat when stressed/recovering from stress where there is residual tension, so usually don't eat and wait until I'm hungry. This can often take a while (cortisol releases... (more)
I've been having constipation issues for about 3 months, and I've been paleo for 8 months now. So for the first 5 months of my paleo lifestyle (I don't consider it just a "diet") I felt great, had more energy, was wide awake during and the day and... (more)
Wow, you've tried everything. Maybe a lazy colon rather than strict constipation? You might want to look into the Squatty Potty.
One would think that an event like that surely wouldn't let anyone off the hook health-wise. IF there is anything to this stress-affecting-the-physical-body thing, then we can assume the Holocaust would have caused ridiculous health problems,... (more)
 this turned out and looks quite the lenghty post, I hope you aren't deterred :) I obtained a meter a couple of months ago and have been testing a lot since. Fasting levels seem to average about 5 (90), randomly throughout the day is often... (more)
I'm a 21 year old male. I've been trying to go from 10% body fat to ~8% lately. I've been following this protocol: -Intermittent fasting -2,000 Calories per day -Low carb: ~60 grams of carbs a day -High protein, moderate fat -Coffee in the... (more)
I IF between 16/20/24 hours daily, generally 20 hours and on a friend's recommendation have recently attempted to follow a largely gluten-free diet. However recently I received some bad news which motivated me to eat right and exercise hard but I... (more)
