If you have been paleo for a year, you should have a pretty good idea what to eat and not eat. Sometimes that means picking the lesser of two evils. Go with salads, meats, avoid breads and things that are fried. Be creative. Plus the... (more)

Dizzy spells? I'm guessing that means you did very low carb paleo. That's hardly necessary, eat some carbohydrate!

Green juice - celery, spinach, cucumber, coriander, lime, kale and ginger root. It's really cleansing and good for digestion with lots of nutrients and probably would go with a fast well.

If you're willing to carry a bag on then what I would do is check a cooler full of food, no ice, and then add ice when you're at the hotel. You don't need a nice one, just leave it at the hotel when you're ready to go home. Be mindful when you... (more)

Completely cut out the carbs, they can be like a drug to some people. Carbs beget carbs, and so on, and so on, and so on, so give it up cold turkey, and don't wait until your vacation is over.
