I was diagnosed with a sleep disorder about a year ago. This led me to read extensively about sleep. There is sound research (David Dinges at Penn is a specialist on the subject) indicating that chronic sleep deprivation, even in small amounts,... (more)

I found the article helpful, and I think it might help some of the other folk I have worked with over time. See, I know a few folk think the article was elitist, but to be honest, I've spoken with an awful lot of people who say "wow, you've... (more)

Look, I believe that Paleo is not.......true. Our paleolithic ancestors ATE GRAIN. It wont cure acne or allergies or anything else. Paleo is just as silly as holistic medicine. So, prove me wrong! Tell me about your success stories. I'd love to... (more)

I am very interested in debate about Paleo and diet in general.. I started down the Paleo path because I was skeptical about SAD, and my skepticism persists. However, when I see a discussion about controversial Paleo principles, the conversation... (more)

We've all heard many Paleo success stories; they are found all over the place (on this forum, on most blogs and sites, in discussions, etc). People losing tens of pounds, getting ripped, ridding themselves of allergies and other illnesses,... (more)

I know this posting is old but I am a failure at paleo. It did lose weight but I only did it for two days. The reason I am a failure is because I am a picky eater. I tried salad but I don't like a lot of vegatables. But I brought one and tried... (more)

I've been a little chubby for a long time but never too out of shape. People got used to me looking a certain way but after almost a year being Paleo, I'm a pretty skinny version of the old me. I'd say I am the healthiest I've ever been, but my... (more)

I don't agree that it's other people projecting fake concern onto you or wishing they were that slim. In my personal experience, it was people who clearly had a fixed view of what I looked like after having known me for a long time, and then... (more)
