Download OpenOffice or LibreOffice. There's an Excel compatible spreadsheet program that should be able to open whatever spreadsheet you're trying to use. You could also try to re-download the spreadsheet, maybe it got broken.

If you're really eating paleo you should be getting plenty of protein from meat, fish, eggs, etc. and you really don't need to supplement. 80-120 grams of protein, for most people, is more than enough and if you're eating a protein/fat based diet... (more)
