Each person is different, that's why Paleo can vary (within certain limits) for everyone. I am sure there were some hunter-gatherers that could not eat some nuts or berries :) My question is about what have you learned on this road of... (more)

I can binge on anything. I need to be careful. I am STILL addicted to sugar. Fat really DOES make me feel satiated! That was definitely a lightbulb moment. Fat binges lead to nausea. Carb binges lead to more carb binges. Vegetable binges lead to... (more)

One of the most common effects of eating Paleo/Primal seems to be having better energy and moods. Tweaking the diet further also really seems to help a lot of people, whether it's more/less carbs, no FODMAPs, or eliminating dairy. But for a... (more)

You need to watch you warning signs I guess. Youve worked those out, yeah? Lack of sleep, obvious ones like delusions or impulsivity, but ideally the more subtle ones you usually get early on. If you havent worked those out, sit down and write... (more)

Female - 24 y/o - 5'6 - 135.6lbs - particularly looking to get into shape, which of course, is usually supplemental to losing weight. One month of Paleo in (80/20) - exercising 3 times a week - the scale says almost 5 lbs lost, but I try not to... (more)

How much weight are you trying to lose? I'd imagine you're not too far from your goal weight. I'm similarly built, and can't imagine that you need to (or even should ) lose a ton more weight--what's your vision/plan/hope? I tend to think that... (more)

What was the moment when you realized what your paleo 'duh' or pareto-effect was? I.e. what was simple thing you stumbled on within paleo that made a huge, disproportionate difference in your wellbeing? For me it was sleep. I'd read about how... (more)

Mine is odd. It is related to reading the primal blueprint and the section about lifting heavy things. I have two small but heavy children (32 lb nearly 2 year old, 51 lb 4 year old), who always want to be carried. It used to get on my nerves and... (more)

I am reading through the Perfect Health Diet. I am wondering if there are any tweaks you have found helpful?

First off, let me say that the PHD is the best book of its kind and that Jaminet did a (largely) excellent job of researching the material and putting it together. That being said, I take issue with a few things. First, I think the 100g/wk liver... (more)

I have noticed a lot of answers to many questions about tweaks that say, in short, "It's not worth the cortisol to worry about it! Go ahead and eat it / do the exercise!" Not that I don't agree with a lot of those answers, but sometimes I do think... (more)

Unspecified natural flavorings?- I'll probably try it. If I get a pimple, I shall shun it. A little soy lecithin in dark chocolate? - I have gotten pimples from it so I shun it. Binders in multivitamins?- Both the binders and the multivitamins... (more)

In other words, using paleo as a middle ground, did you move further to the right (zero-carb, raw meat, only loincloths ;) ). Perhaps you went further left (Weston A. Price recommendations, or something in like with Berardi's Precision Nutrition).... (more)

I lean between Panu and WAPF. Panu for its science-centeredness and tolerance of certain neo foods, and WAPF because I plan to spend the next 7-10 years making babies and breastfeeding them, and WAPF has much more information on maternal and... (more)

I've tried the "popular" paleo tweaking suggestions of adding more fat and red meat into my diet for about a month, but I am actually doing worse. My weight has sky-rocketed to a place where it hasn't been in about 1.5-2 years. I have a small... (more)

Unless you post a food diary for at least a week there's no real information to go on. There are so many factors to consider that just posting an observation is not enough to make a real assessment :-)
