In the past, I have had no issue with exercising and feeling great for the whole day afterwards. I ended up taking almost 4 months off of 'strenuous' exercise (trying to cut out the chronic cardio) after I had a pretty scary hypo like attack and... (more)

Personally, I wouldn't be unable to replete muscle glycogen on such a diet due to the low carbohydrate intake and would have the exact same symptoms. You might try adding in starch and seeing if there's a difference. It worked for me.

HI all, Over the past year I've noticed my legs becoming increasingly weak when, say, walking up stairs or up a hill, to the point that I feel a bit puffed and tired when I get to the top. I'm not unfit and my leg muscles are strong, I can do... (more)

How are you with minerals? Could you try supplementing magnesium, potassium, selenium, and the like?

You'll want something to replete electrolytes and hydration - so coconut water would be good, seasalt with water would be good. Drink these slowly, so as not to trigger another bout. Following up with some probiotics and prebiotics might not... (more)

Hey all, Only been one week into Paleo. Haven't noticed any significant changes except I tend to get redness on my face at times. My main question is, do most people see changes in skin while on Paleo? I've been itching a lot more than usual,... (more)

It could be the food. But it could just be crossfit. It is an excellent tool for ferreting out your weak spots! Crossfit can be pretty calf intensive, with all the jumping and lifting. You could try those crazy compression socks. A lot of... (more)

Sounds like what is referred to as the "low carb flu". Most people get over it in a few days. Drink plenty of fluid and try to get a little extra sodium and potassium in. Some people drink bouillon, but it's hard to find a paleo compliant... (more)

Everything Karen said, plus you might want to take some glutamine to help with the cravings. And olive oil is good but saturated fat is a lot better. Can you get your hands on some coconut oil? That's a great source of energy.

Turn your foot all the way out(right foot to right, left foot to left), tighten your butt/hip/quad and kick, while standing. Your knees should pop and feel better.

20 pushups isn't actually all that bad for someone who doesn't work out consistently, especially if you were doing a proper pushup. (Though part of this depends on your weight.) People don't often realize how difficult a proper pushup can be. You... (more)

Your brain needs energy. If you stopped to supply carbohydrates, you have to provide an alternative, i.e. fat! See ketogenic diet for more details.
