The internet is full of health "experts" or gurus. Sometimes they are media sensations. Other times they are humble and don't claim to have all of the answers. Either way, they still have a group of people that hang on every word and don't... (more)
My boyfriend calls me a human heater because my body temperature is always so dam hot. I also have epilepsy and over heating causes me to black out. So I'd like to know what's going on? Someone please help!
I have started using Cronometer (an online food log tool) to keep track of my nutirents intake. I am particularly watchful of my intake of carbs as well as my Omega 3 ratio and, of course, all kinds of micro nutrients. So far, so good. But I have... (more)

A few years ago I had pretty bad acne on my back. Despite eating very well and experimenting with possible triggers, I was not able to contain the problem. Then I went on a course of antibiotics (specifically for the acne), and the... (more)
If I am waking in the night hungry - and I mean really hungry! - does this mean I am not fat adapted? Should I get up and eat something? and, if so, what? or should I toughy it out in the hope that my body will get used to it and I won't wake up? (more)
Firstly... The epidemology regarding diet and acne did not show that low-carb eating was the diet that prevailed. The two population studies that Cordain references the most are Kitivans and the Ache. Both ate a pretty low fat... (more)
I've been noticing that when I first started to eat paleo I used to be inclined to eat more and now I've been eating less because of not being hungry during the day but I do tend to eat large meals with big bowls of vegetbles, salads and some form... (more)
I also experienced loss in appetite, and eating big bowls of vegetables, salads, and protein is not going to cause you nutritional deficiencies, in fact this is very nutritious and you're likely to improve your nutrition (depending on how you were... (more)

I had a concussion 3 months ago and have been having a tension-type headache with fatigue since then. Has anyone found anything diet-related or otherwise that has helped with this condition?
This question is a bit of fun and a bit of research. If you encountered a paleo bakery & cafe what would you expect or want to find on the menu?
So, food is certainly or can be a cause of acne issues, particularly in me I believe. Here's what I'm wondering. While I continue to start paleo (yesterday) and stick to fish, meat, vegetables and fruits, I wonder something: how can we objectively... (more)
Can I use millet flour as a substitute for almond flour.? I usually use coconut or sunflower seed flour, but I currently have no access to either of the products.
Nut & alternative grain flours are totally icing on the proverbial paleo cake. Their only advantage is that they are gluten-free. If that's your primary concern, then go for it.
