Hi, I am on my second week of strict aip paleo to combat my stage 3 Hidradenitis Suppurativa. My first week consisted mainly of beef because I know what to look for in beef, i.e. 100% grass fed to avoid consuming the grains the cow... (more)
What does it matter if the animal eats grain? Those grains are completely broken down into the constituent sugar, fat and protein molecules that they are composed of in the digestive system of the animal that ate it and turned into meat (muscle... (more)
Trying to gain weight whilst maintaing a strict paleo diet has proven very tricky. Been drinking a lot of Banana and Avocado smoothies however, avocados are deffo expensive in the mersey. Is there anything else I could try on, trying to stay away... (more)
What is your opinion on what a hardcore paleo follower should eat? I'm particularly interested about the topics of canned and frozen foods, coffee, chocolate, honey and maple syrup, and dairy(especally butter).
I've been strictly Paleo for a number of weeks now, and just today decided to 'cheat' a little by having half a tsp. of Manuka honey. Immediately, I felt sick to my core. At the time I ate it, I hadn't had food for a good four hours or so, so I'm... (more)
You spiked your blood sugar (and therefore insulin) & are experiencing a blood sugar drop. No worries. It's normal if you've been low carb for awhile. Eat some protein and/or fat & you will feel better.

Ive seen it recommended on some MMA sites as a great natural recovery aid from workouts but a quick google search including some of the Paleo sites I visit turned up nothing. I want to do an experiment where I am 100% organic Paleo for 2 weeks to... (more)
I have been doing strict Paleo for the last 4 weeks. The only exceptions -- daily -- 1 scoop whey protein powder after and/or between CrossFit WODs, morning coffee, and sugar free chewing gum -- None of this is new to my diet, either. Before... (more)
I ask this question because my friend who is paleo thinks I'm too restrictive since I choose not to eat grains, dairy, veggie oils, legumes, soy, and corn. He eats peanut butter, butter/cream, white rice, and adheres from grains only like 80% of... (more)
I started eating paleo in January (about 4months ago) and felt amazing. The 15% would be the occasional side of white rice or a little goat cheese). I decided to try a 30-day strict paleo challenge to ween my way off sugar a bit and I'm finding my... (more)
