I thought Allen Carr's Easyway to stop smoking was so brilliant I decided to take a look at his Easyway to Lose Weight. Concepts: 1. “With my method you can eat as much of your favourite foods as you want, whenever you want, as often as... (more)
So I went to this 2 week retreat where vegetarian food was served. I managed to avoid soy and gluten and ate non-paleo stuff such as white rice, milk, oats, lentils, beans, sprouts, tahini and some gluten-free treats but I felt undernourished and... (more)
For example, even though people have supposedly evolved eating meets and vegetables or whatever, does that mean that vegetarianism is wrong for human consumption? I just think that, even though I follow and appreciate the paleo diet to an extent,... (more)
What's your opinion on "news" such as this one: http://www.channel4.com/news/vegetarian-diet-reduces-heart-disease-risk-by-up-to-a-third And what about the study they mention? Does anyone know anything about it? (more)
I have been doing paleo for about a month now. I feel really healthy and my stomach/fatigue problems have gone away. My issue is I still feel internally conflicted between paleo and vegetarianism. I know meat is very healthy for my body but I... (more)
Okay, that title might be a bit hyperbolic, but it's correct in principle. I've got a friend who is currently vegetarian (didn't know that) who is convinced that giving up meat is why she's feeling better. She does admit that it hasn't helped with... (more)
If she's doing it for ethical or moral reasons, you're never going to convince her of anything. You could let her try it and see how she's doing in 4-6 weeks. That is usually long enough for the malnutrition to kick in. She'll be complaining of... (more)
Tried Vegetarianism for 14 months, but stopped last January. Then this summer I was introduced to Paleo, and now I have seen the light. Gradually over the course of a couple months I have been going more and more Paleo with my diet. Inronically,... (more)
Hello, this is my first post on Paleo Hacks. I'm hoping you can help me a little with my wife and "conversion" issues, plus a new health challenge. My wife is pretty much the complete opposite of me on fitness ... well, sort of. She does... (more)
I don't think I could, but I'm curious if anyone has given Vegetarianism the same energy, focus and intention that they've given Paleo? I live in India and it seems the vegetarians are the most unhealthy people I know (just what I've noticed... (more)
Food shortages could force world into vegetarianism, warn scientists http://www.guardian.co.uk/global-development/2012/aug/26/food-shortages-world-vegetarianism (more)
One solution would be to eat the vegetarians, but the buggers eat so much grain, that eating one would screw up my Omega 6 ratio. Might be a whole new market for salad-fed vegetarians.
A relative just posted this article on her Facebook. Any thoughts? http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/guest-blog/2012/07/23/human-ancestors-were-nearly-all-vegetarians/ (more)
There are more holes in this story than a wheel of swiss cheese. For example he said, ???Our guts are remarkably similar to those of chimpanzees and orangutans?????? Um, no. They don???t have zonulin and thus are not as leaky as human guts. Their... (more)
So let's say you can only afford or only have access to organic/grass fed meat say....once every couple of months. Are you better off going vegetarian or eating conventional meat with all the hormones/antibiotics etc?
I stopped eating meat not too too long ago, maybe about a year ago. Then in August, my skin started breaking out horrifically...and the health of my hair was obviously deteriorating, it started looking very dry and the ends were ruined (even soon... (more)
Report found at the follwing link: http://www.webmd.com/diet/news/20120502/hate-meat-it-may-be-in-your-genes The study basically outlines that some people may very well have a gene (if not 2) that intensifies the scent of the steroid androstenone... (more)
I'm pondering the health pros and cons of either 1) paleo with conventional meat/farmed fish, or 2) vegetarianism that excludes grains/seed oils/processed foods but includes traditionally prepared legumes, pastured eggs, and organic dairy... (more)
I'm surprised I haven't seen this here yet. I was wondering what people's thoughts here are on Quorn, a man-made protein product. It's not made from grains or soy. It's a mycroprotein. http://www.quorn.us/About-Us/ I normally eat eggs and... (more)
It's highly processed with various additives, so it's quite bad IMHO. I used to eat that a lot when I was living in the UK (I had a phase where I tried to limit real meat 12-14 years ago).
Melissa of HuntGatherLove posted this link on her Twitter: http://www.diseaseproof.com/archives/hurtful-food-sniffles-come-readily-with-just-a-dip-into-the-sad-diet.html I read that, and my snarky anti-vegetarian side says Talia is nuts to think... (more)
I think it's more that our bodies get used to particular things and don't react well to change in general. It's like how tourists typically get sick from drinking the water but locals can drink it and be fine.
I've recently and suddenly been experiencing creaky knees and night blindness. (Damn, I'm only 44 and walk "everywhere", those joints should be OK, right?) I'm guessing I'm missing a nutrient or two or 30 years as a vegetarian is catching up to... (more)

I viewed the blog recently as it was mentioned somewhere I was already reading. I have nothing against it but I didn't add it to my bookmarked list as it didn't add anything to my own journey.
I'm new to paleo. I just read this and now I'm a bit confused. The scientific basis of vegetarianism I keep reading different articles and each person says the other way of eating is unhealthy and will lead to health problems. They all sound... (more)
After going paleo in the last weeks, the issue of what one eats have been coming more frequently during my conversation with my friends. Surprisingly, I found out that quite a few of my friends do not eat meat. They don't publicly label... (more)
Now there's no way I'd entertain the idea of giving up meat in all it's fleshy forms, but there's an "interesting" [or provocative, you choose] article on Good.is about the rise in meat theft correlating with sharp rises in it's worldwide... (more)
I just finished my first week of paleo (actually primal, I guess, because we're having heavy cream in our coffee?) and I'm having a heck of a time figuring out how to manage meat! I was a vegetarian until recently when we started eating poultry... (more)
Im seeing more and more MMA fighters adopt vegetarianism and it got me to thinking that we almost never hear about a professional athlete contribute part of their success to Paleo. Shane Carwin is a beast of a man and just went... (more)
