I personally am looking to side step the adverse effects that triclosan is having on my body, but am unsure how to do so. The hospital I work at only has handsoap with Tricolsan based hand soap. And with working as an ER tech, I wash my hands... (more)

Hello all, So I'm a 17 year old girl, about 5' 3'' and 93lbs (looking to get that to around 105, in a healthy way). I just recently decided to go Paleo because as far as I could tell, it just makes good sense! I'm all about the scientific... (more)
First off, it's awesome that you've discovered this lifestyle at 17. Some of us didn't get around to it till we were already experiencing various issues, so getting an early start is great! I'm new here, but I'm not new to Paleo. So let's see... (more)
Six days a wek I have been eating about 20 to 50 grams of carbs a day to help lose some weight. It's working great. One day a week I have been eating 75 to 100 grams of carbs, in an attempt to avoid or lessen any intolerance to carbs that might... (more)
I've recently been diagnosed with adrenal fatigue and I'm sure it's from years of not sleeping and drinking a lot of energy drinks, smoking, and alcohol PLUS all the added stress of life itself. I've been caffeine free now for 5 months and alcohol... (more)

When I made the (abrupt) switchover from (organic) SAD to Paleo, I suffered from constipation, something that continued appearing from time to time. What I have learnt is that, for me at least, the most important factor is my gut bacteria. Since... (more)
I've been strict Paleo for a while now and my acne breakouts have gone down a lot but there still not gone so what am I doing wrong? I don't even use any skin products except for the occasional natural shampoo and natural sunscreen when I have to.... (more)
long-time lurker, first time poster here: my little-debbie-and-white-sugar-and-fast-food addict husband has just decided to go paleo!! He's 42 and out of shape (I'm 26, been GF for 6 years and mostly paleo for 3 years) and this will be a... (more)
Does anyone know of a Paleo friendly GI Specialist in Nashville, TN? Or there-abouts? I am being referred to one by my Doctor for IBS. I think I just have fructose intolerance and sensitivity to FODMAPs. However, I don't know how to tell if it is... (more)
I started crossfit about a year ago, and pretty strict Paleo (aside from one latte ever couple weeks) about 6 months ago. I go probably about 4 days a week to the box, and have always been super active so I didn't have much to loose anyways.... (more)
I have 7 days left to go on my 45 day paleo challenge sponsored by my cross fit gym . Basically for the 45 days you have to be by-the-book strict paleo, which I???ve tried my hardest to adhere to. Being new to paleo though I had to learn a lot as... (more)
Decapitation is a good way of getting rid of several pounds of ugly flesh. Or you could do what they do on the "Biggest Loser" and dehydrate yourself until you piss blood...
Alright, Hackers: I've been eating the right way for about five months. I'm feeling mostly great with a few lingering issues. I've made bone broth. I'm making snide comments to people about the lipid hypothesis. I know my fats. I've held fistfuls... (more)
I would recomend reading The Perfect Health Diet book.
Hello all! I stumbled upon this sight and after reading a bunch of the questions I decided I wanted to be a part of it. I am trying to get back on the Paleo plan but I have a really hard time with a few things. Number 1 being that I love dairy.... (more)
I've been successful in the past on low carb dieting (lost 60 or so lbs) but the old demon of sugar and processed junk took me over. I am a member of Weight Watchers and have seen steady losses of .5 lbs per week but I still feel like crap. I knew... (more)
Stay the course. Toss the scale. Don't get lost in the minor details. Be Patient. Enjoy the journey.
Alrighty, so just as a disclaimer, before I started making my switch over to start becoming more of a strict primal eater (def more primal than paleo), the majority of my fridge already made up of mostly nearly paleo/primal foods (meat, fish,... (more)
Could we suffer from malnutrition and how do we avoid it? I have seen posts of folks not eating enough variety. What are your hacks to ensure proper nutrition in your diet? What are your tips for others?
Title says it all. I guess I could specify that I mean chronic (systemic) inflammation as opposed to local/temporary inflammation associated with a cut/burn/infection/etc. Just hoping to pick up some new and interesting ideas (but include the... (more)
I suck at sticking to diets! I will do it for a week or so... and get impatient and not care about losing weight etc. It's like I convince myself to stop caring about losing the weight. Ah! It's so frustrating... I have been trying to do... (more)
I moved to the area about 7 months ago and was in a baby-haze so I'm just now finally getting out and about and I was considering starting a meetup for my area but I wanted to see where people are. What are your favorite grassfed meat... (more)
Its hot. I know my cooking has shifted, hunger is less - not good as I'm on a gaining path, and the need to be creative is at it's peak. The desire to go out and eat and let someone else deal with the prep and cleanup is so enticing... oh so... (more)
Sounds like you've got the cold covered, Juba. For the hot, I say grill everything -- keeps cooking time short, keeps the heat outside the house, clean-up stays minimal -- and you can stay on track with getting enough tasty protein.
We've had a number of questions asking about spending less money on evolutionary eating and living in general, but I'd like to take this question and try to flip that around. Where in your life do you think you get the most positive results when... (more)
I'll add to the chorus of spending money on high-quality, naturally-raised, grass-fed red meats, except that I find it much cheaper to buy my meat this way! I would buy it anyway even if it were more expensive because 1) it's much better for me,... (more)
Hi all, I live in Dubai and wanted to start a question/thread where any others following this lifestyle could post suggestions/tips on where to find paleo nutrition/activities in this part of the world. I hope I'm not the only one!
Hello! I'm headed to Dubai very shortly (the 28th of Jan) and spent 2 months last year living in Dibba, Oman. I did lots of traveling around northern Oman and the UAE and have spent a good amount of time in Dubai. This time around I'll be spending... (more)
So....After working in an office environment I find myself always searching for new ways to stay in shape while indoors. My best friend has been 5 Gallon water jugs. I'm able to do "dumbbell' rows, back/front squats, dead lifts with 2 jugs,... (more)
I have to go on a business trip for 6 days- to Pigeon Forge, which probably makes it worse- and it will be the first time I've had to try to eat paleo while going out for every meal. Also, my per diem isn't very high so no fancy dinners for me!... (more)
