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?
Basically I started being vegan at the age of 14, then went raw vegan an year ago (I'm 18 now). Basically raw vegan has KILLED my stomache. I get such pains that are unberable and have been with them for quit a while. Cooked vegan was better,... (more)
That sounds pretty much like I began. And gradually it wrecked my digestion and energy levels. Adding back in white potatoes, white rice and mung bean noodles sorted me out. But I do regret the low carb year.
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)
My friend is a vegan for ethical reasons, I'm not going to argue with her about it but I'm curious as to what she could supplement with to be as heathy as possible? I think I heard Matt Lalonde mention something about a certain sea... (more)
Where I live Raw Veganism is extremely popular and I am constantly confronted with it. Friends are even trying to convert me. Now there where a few arguments I am not sure about and I wanted to ask if someone could help me out with... (more)
Let me start off my saying that Paleo makes sense to me, and is something I have wanted to do for a long time. The only reason I have not committed to it is because of my family. I'm an adult, I've got two kids and a spouse. My kids eat whatever I... (more)
It can be done, I'm a paleo in a non-paleo family, maybe you could make some paleo dishes the whole family will enjoy? As I said, it's quite doable and I do it, but you may need to thicken your skin and get used to listening to your family rant... (more)
Hey, I only recently started paleo less than a week ago and when I do it properly with the grains (really take every single grain related thing out ie. caramel flavor in balsamic vinegar or roasted almonds in almond butter ;( ) I do notice an... (more)
I've heard that people who are longtime vegetarians/veg*ns/vegetarians/veg*ns from birth that the first time they have meat/first time they have meat in a while it can make them sick. Was this the case with you? Or did you handle it just fine? (more)
Here's mine: Asexual Vegan Guru rationalizes diet-induced impotence. Start video at 10:00 for lols

Is anyone here trying to incorporate Mark Bittman's "Vegan Before 6, VB6" lifestyle into paleo? Here is the explanation of the book: http://markbittman.com/book/vb6/. The basic idea is that you eat unprocessed, vegan food until dinnertime (6pm... (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)
Does anyone have a good reply to this comment? I'm probably not going to reply to it because I don't think that an intelligent debate is possible based on her other comments. However I would like to know some solid reasons against veganism. "... (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?
can you use seeds? the girl on the paleomg.com site uses sunflower seed butter in her nut free recipes. i'm sure you could just sub flax eggs for the real eggs she uses. she makes a lot of bars.
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)
Now dont call me a hippy vegan or whatever, im just talking from a humane standpoint. Animal comes into this world, given a chance to live, then killed brutally to feed you? Where is the logic here? Everyone has only one life, and they get there... (more)
Ellen Degeneres recently admitted to having eggs from a neighbours "happy chickens" and of course caused an uproar in the vegan community and blogosphere. and heres another famous "now former:" vegan who couldnt resist her paleo humanity any... (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)
