Hello all! I am a complete newbie to this whole Paleo lifestyle. I am on day 4 and I fill like, for lack of a better word, crap. Headaches, tired all the time, etc. I read that this is very common and that my body is in detox so I can expect... (more)
I'm not a great writer but over the past three years, I've gained such valuable knowledge that it needs to be shared with people struggling with health problems and relying on traditional, mainstream medicine as their only hope. The most... (more)
Ok. I must admit I am intrigued with this bulletproof coffee idea.I understand the science behind the grass fed cow butter and the coconut oil. But I have not full committed to it yet though. The concept behind drinking this coffee is that I... (more)
So I have been having some great success with Paleo since kicking this thing off. I forgot my lunch this morning...I know...dangerzone, right? So I needed something. I got a mediterranean chicken salad with no dressing and very little feta. ... (more)
