I've been doing a 30 day paleo challenge and I cut out fruit hoping to see a greater reduction in body fat. Ever since I cut out fruit I've been having, to put it mildly, digestive trouble (read: something like diarrhea) every morning. I cut out... (more)
Personally, I haven't had a single bite of fruit in any form - no juice, no dried fruit, no berries, nothing, in 4 years with no digestive problems. (My diet consists of meat, fat, eggs, a very small amt of dairy, and veg - all brassicas) Have... (more)
started Paleo eating (strict) 16 days ago after years of very bad SAD. Lost 12 pounds so far and feel pretty good now that I'm past the first week. Yesterday get pain after urination and urge to go. Haven't had a Urinary tract infection in 15... (more)
I love candles--the soothing glow, the fascination of fire, the way they flatter people's faces, the lack of sleep-interfering blue-light. However, I have a cat and would really rather not having burning flames lying around just waiting to get... (more)
What are some good thoughts on how to reproduce the effect of candles using electric lights? Ideally the effect would have the same wavelength of light, similar intensity, etc. To reproduce candle light electrically, you need an incandescent... (more)
If so, how does the lipid hypothesis (e.g., the fear of fat) skew the market price of nonfat milk allowing for its price to be much higher than if we lived in a world without the lipid hypothesis?
So I've been paleo for a little more than a year, now, and it's done great things for me. I'm looking to step up my game a little, though, and amongst other things this includes drastically reducing my fruit intake. My addiction to fruit is... (more)
Yes, I had exactly the same problem. Actually I think it's two separate problems. The first problem is a craving for the food even when you're not eating it. With me, it took about two years for the cravings to stop completely. They get weaker... (more)
So I discovered Paleo around Christmas and I've been trying to find the right balance for myself. It's working pretty well (after a few bumps) and I've decided it might be a really good choice for my 4 year old son Caleb who has had digestive... (more)
I have a good friend who is what I call "paleo-curious". She and her husband are very much into natural living and natural eating. They have a toddler and another baby on the way this summer. The main barrier(s) between them trying out paleo:... (more)
I recently started taking Natrol 200mg Alpha Lipoic Acid in the morning after I have heard that is can be beneficial in those with open angle glaucoma.. I noticed that the "pulsing" headaches I would get above the eye from the increase pressure in... (more)
Hey- I drink A LOT of organic whole milk.. (stonyfield, horizon, greenway brands etc..). I drink maybe 1/2 a gallon every 2 days.. I am 178 lbs and going to crossfit. any dangers with consuming so much milk?
Personally, I would try to eliminate it for a month, then add it back in. If there is no change, then you're good. If you can't do a month, then try at least 2 weeks before adding it back in.
Just wondering if this could be a temporary fix until I get a a filter that removes fluoride? If one of these happens to be fluoride free, and I start drinking it, is there any additional info I would need to pay attention to? Thanks (more)
I???m not sure what???s going on, but each of the last 3 mornings I woke with excessive plaque buildup on the inside of my bottom front teeth. During these same 3 nights I slept well from ~10p to ~2am, woke & tossed for a couple of hours, and... (more)
I've been struggling to sleep - and more specifically stay asleep - for a while now - mainly because of menopausal hot flushes. I've bought some magnesium citrate tablets(100 mg) but not sure how many I should be taking. 1 tablet doesn't seem to... (more)
So I have one account from my work computer that shows me as "registered" and one from my home computer which won't let me merge the pair (keeps telling me the email address already belongs to another user...me!) There's no "login" link anywhere... (more)

Not exactly a paleo question. Has anyone had shoulder surgery? How was the recovery? How long did it take you to get back to "normal" ("normal" meaning "active")? I've been diagnosed (via MRI) with an extensive glenoid labrum tear in my left... (more)
I absolutely love BBQ....ribs, pulled pork, pulled chicken, 1/2 chicken, brisket, etc. The meat is cooked low and slow and falls off the bone and is super juicy. I am getting hungry just thinking about it. Most restaurants BBQ their meats with... (more)
If you want to reward yourself for a hard day of sitting at a computer, what's your take on downing a cool glass of chocolate coconut milk or chocolate heavy cream? I know that some people can't consume that much coconut or cream without tummy... (more)
