Hi everyone, going through a moral quandary here. So followed paleo for 2 years, absolutely LOVED IT, finally felt healthy and energised and strong...was really really great. Even began my own health/nutrition blog and health and fitness is now... (more)
People criticize paleo for a lot of reasons. What tenets do people bash the most, or most frustratingly, in your experience?
I found this pro-vegan type video pretty interesting. Anyone familiar with my activity on this forum knows I'm a little obsessive about life extension and, while I respect those looking to shed a few pounds for better health, I couldn't care... (more)
Hi, Coming from a long term vegan background I miss many of the raw vegan desserts I used to enjoy and looking at the ingredients now some of them seem reasonably paleo. I'll give an example: Blueberry pie. Crust: dates, almonds, walnuts (all... (more)
I have a friend you recently turned vegan. Besides the facts about how dirty factory farming can be one of her main reasons was that she felt lethargic eating meat. Is there any other explanations that would cause lethargy? Without asking her... (more)
Today I happened upon this link via Mark Sission: http://kristensraw.com/blog/2013/03/17/my-vegan-diet-caused-health-problems-would-primal-paleo-or-real-food-be-better/ While it's purely anecdotal evidence, it's surely compelling anecdotal... (more)
Lets say I had a friend that was a vegan who had an autistic son, and wanted to give her some advice on diet without forcing paleo on her. How do I coach a vegan to help her son? She's defensive and believes in vegan nutritional and ethical... (more)
I have been on the AIP diet for a week. All of the plant based proteins I was eating were throwing "gas on the fire." I have not consumed any animal products for 25yrs. and now I am told that consuming animals is the only way to live healthy and... (more)
I need to make cookies (or some sort of dessert, preferably not a pudding-type thing) for a vegan and a paleo who is allergic to nuts. Can it be done? Anyone have any good recipes or a link?
When a vegetarian/vegan is telling you about how vegetarianism is compassionate and how animals have souls and consiousnesses, and you're a paleo, is there any right way to respond to that? I do agree that animals have souls and consiousnesses,... (more)
I just don't understand this. I mean you can get the healthy fats, omega 3, k2 and everything else from vegan sources. What is it about animal products that make them necessary for optimal health? I can't find another thread that talks about... (more)
Hi It's been just over 20 years since I ate meat, although I did eat fish and eggs up until approximately 8-10 years ago. 15-17 years since I ate dairy and 10 years since I ate grains. For about the past 5-6 years I followed Doug Graham's raw... (more)
My borderline vegan sister is about to head to grad school for nutrition and I am a newbie cavegirl. We always get into arguments about animal protein and grains. Her most recent campaign: http://nutritionfacts.org/topics/animal-protein/ I know... (more)
I am a nanny to an 11-year old girl on the autism spectrum. In the past couple years, her weight has gotten out of control. She is about 4'6" and 110 lbs. Her parents are also very overweight and her dad is a very opinionated and fat-phobic... (more)
I've spent the past few months following an as-paleo-as-possible vegan diet (see my thread here). I'm thinking of introducing fish into my diet as I have less aversion to that than other kinds of meat and it seems to have the health benefits I... (more)
Hey there! First off, please don't reply with any mean or aggressive comments! I've found that when I simply tell people I'm vegan sometimes they will get very hostile and I don't know why! I've been vegan for ethical reasons, but I also believe... (more)
Just watched this video that Jimmy More tweeted http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PutaZQN8R34&feature=youtu.be What do you guys think? Did Weston A Price really die of heart disease at age 58? (more)
What a retarded video. I'm sure it's just as easy (if not easier!) to find a bunch of miserable looking veg*ns and pit them against folks like Sisson, Wolf, and the host of other new young paleo authors.
There are just too many foods on Paleo that inhibit one's ability to achieve optimal well being such as all meat, meat products and cooked foods. I actually care about my health, so I'm saying farewell to this diet. Thoughts? Thanks, -Starving (more)
Hey everyone! I'm a 19 year old female in Washington state, with a long history of diets (see, I was a skinny girl who thought she was fat) nothing ever worked, and it put my digestive system through hell. I was a vegetarian for 3 years, Vegan... (more)
I was telling a coworker today how unhealthy soy is for you. He seemed upset because soy and beans are his most common source of protein. What are the best sources of protein for a person who is vegan if they try to avoid soy and beans?
I have read so many different stories from raw vegans to macrobiotics to of course paleo on curing acne. Wondering if anyone has had experience with any of these diets and which worked/didn't work. Trying to find connections with my diet and my... (more)
Do the GAPS protocol and get your gut in good shape. My acne is related to not being able to digest carbs properly so I'm doing Low Carb GAPS with bonebroths and probiotics.
I recently came across a post from one of the users that she was a vegan for many years and cured her immune disorder, and lack of menstruation by switching to paleo. I am in the same place right now as I have suffered for 5 years without a... (more)
My story is long - and I just happened to post it this week on my blog (linked in my profile). In short, I was vegan for 10 years, and did every type of vegan/vegetarian diet/cleanse and my health kept getting worse and worse. I lost my period for... (more)
i don't know about the paleo community but i im quite frequently on youtube and this vegan dude Harley Johnstone keeps saying that fruit and sugar is the answer for weight loss and meat and fat should be avoided because is makes you fat and sick ,... (more)
It's hard to stay legume/grain-free on a vegetarian/pescetarian paleo diet. Soy is out, dairy is out, but for me, seafood and eggs are in. I imagine it would be even harder for vegan paleos. What are you vegan-paleos eating for satiation and... (more)
Lyndsay- I probably eat similarly to you. I eat legumes, very carefully-prepared--usually lentils or heirloom variety beans. I also eat plenty in the way of fat (olive oil, lard, coconut oil, ghee). I don't feel good eating grains. They tend to... (more)
