Back when I was a vegetarian and a vegan, I was never interested in wearing those shirts that said things like "Meat is murder" or "I love tofu" or using bumper stickers, key chains, bracelets, or any of that type of junk that advertised my... (more)

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)
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)
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)
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)
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?
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)
Im a Vegan. And im wondering... Im reading this forum here and it is actually making me laugh. You say Vegans don't get enough nutrients and what not that your body needs. Why are you lying to people like that? If Veganism is so bad then how does... (more)
What is your opinion about vegan naturopathic doctors? I remember one day I was watching a Dr.Mercola video, and in it he mentioned that you will never find a vegan naturopathic doctor or something along those lines. It seems though that now,... (more)
It seems to me that Paleo is sort of a rebranding of the Zone style low/no carb diets that lost popularity after being shown to be unhealthy, and extremely difficult. Is science behind this, or is it the animal agriculture industry? I'm just... (more)
So you are obviously a vegan troll, and not here for healthy debate. So I just have one question for you.... Do paleo people actually go on vegan boards and troll like this? Or is this just something you do?
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.
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?
Thanksgiving is bringing home to me that most of the people who I care about eat, not just SAD, but a very inverse diet to mine. I live in a liberal college town. Most of my loving, progressive, artistic friends & family: Believe in the... (more)
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???m looking to incorporate more paleo principles in my diet. I'm a 20something female who has lost significant weight the last couple of years, but am still obese. My original diet was basically all carbs and sugar, sometimes avoiding meat (junk... (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)
