I eat a moderate carb paleo and work out(strength) and walk regularly. I am also on a very strict budget of only 40-50 a week. I prioritize good quality meat, mostly organic veggies (at least the "dirty dozen"), and eggs (generally organic... (more)
For protein and fat sources you could consume meat, eggs and fish. (Also liver and other organs) Regarding cheap sources of carbs you could opt for Cassava, plantains, sweet potatoes and Yams. But if you are on a cheap budget you could also... (more)
I've just restarted lifting weights after a five month hiatus or so, and want to know if everyone thinks that bicycling at least 20km or so a day is going to be detrimental to both building muscle and recovery. Last year I was following... (more)
I have been Paleo for about a year and saw some great results. I lost about 20lbs (from 145 to 125 for a 5'4 female). In the past few months, however, I have started to put weight on, at about a pound a week. I am feeling very frustrated and have... (more)
Trying to figure out what's the best way to go about cooking sweet potatoes. I know there's been some debate regarding getting rid of antinutrients, losing nutrients in the cooking process, etc. What's the best way to cook them to maintain the... (more)

Hey guys, I'm a 20 yr old female that recently started eating paleo (again). Right now I'm consuming approx. 1,200 calories per day; although, I'll admit, sometimes I consume closer to 1,000. I realize this is probably too little, but I'm... (more)
Hi, I am a skinny guy,or I am unless I eat 150 to 200 carbs per day from starches, even when not heavy lifting (2x week). If I don't eat carbs I lose weight super easily. My target bodyweight is 79 kilos. I like the sound of CBL, it would be... (more)
Quick question, Is it the same (as far as the body is concerned) to carb load the night before a hard, fasted workout in the morning with fruit (I've been tending towards eating a lot of grapes, berries, melon) as opposed to starches... (more)
When I first stated on the Paleo life style, I felt great. After the 3rd week, I was on an emotional rollercoaster. I cried for no apparent reason. I was eating lots of veggies, fruit and meat, but was not getting enough of the carb... (more)
Lots of options. Fruit, roots, well cooked beans, some nuts, some rice, potatoes, sweet potatoes, squash.
Evening all, I've had a look around (albeit briefly) and couldn't find anything specifically answering my query. So, over the past month I've regularly consumed crap on Saturday evenings (burgers, fries, beer etc.) and I'm wondering whether... (more)
I know some people have probably seen this addressed, but everything I searched for came up in bits and pieces that didn't provide a straight forward answer or good example. I started a paleo style diet, I say that because I maintained limited... (more)
Thats basically it. We all know, add fat, lower the glycemic index of any carb. Thats why for some crazy reason, ice cream sugars are absorbed slower than starch in white bread (ie lower gi). How/why does this happen?
I have been tracking my macronutrients via con-o-meter. I am shooting for a ratio of 15:20:65(carbs:protein:fat). I can't seem to get my ratio of fat above my ratio of protein. Any suggestions?
Im VLC/ZC Keto adapted. If I touch carbs, PWO refeed or otherwise, even 50g, I get these symptoms: -Flush in the face -Foggy and sleepy -Irritable -HUNGRY Thing is, other things besides carbs that supposedly raise insulin give me the same... (more)
My experience with VLC/ZC led to adverse reactions to everything you mentioned and it got to the point that anything sweet triggered the same reaction, even artifical sweeteners that weren't supposed to. I'd also feel dizzy and nauseous and just... (more)
About 2 months ago I had a nice set of abs at 175 lbs..I caught a cold for about a week and slowly lost them. This past month I went off the deep end. I've drank beer the past three weekends, binged on foods i shouldn't be eating (Pizza, white... (more)
I've been Paleo for quite some months now. When I was over in Haiti, I didn't eat Paleo for a week. I got back, had the runs, and now I'm back eating Paleo. It's been about a month since I was in Haiti, and I've had brain fog for the last 2... (more)
It is my understanding that cholesterol is only harmful if you have oxidised LDL type and that this is a problem for westerners because of high intake of refined sugars, refined carbs and omega 6. My question is will eating safe starches from taro... (more)
I go walking everyday on my lunch break, when i eat VLC i find i don't have much energy, i lack that spring in my step, if i go up to 200g carbs then it comes back, but then the last 2 days i've been fasting, all i've eaten is one avocado... (more)
tatical energy is a survial mechanism. Your body responds because it needs to in order to get more energy (food). Carbs are not the devil, 5 day fasts are not health seeking.
Hello everyone. I have a few questions about training, rest days, metabolism, and my paleo dieting habits and how they all work together to affect my quality of sleep everyday. Here's my stats:Male ; 28 years old ; height: 5'11" / 180 cm ; weight:... (more)
I am having issues with carbs, I feel like maybe something is missing from my diet or something is going on. I started a Primal/Paleo diet exactly a month ago because I have PCOS and possibly insulin resistance. I did develop mild gestational... (more)
I've noticed recently that on days after I go for it on carbs that wounds from cuts/grazes that I've had for too long tend to heal noticeably, is there an explanation for this? I also noticed this weekend after eating about 400g carbs, which for... (more)
Excess carbs can interfere with wound healing--ask any one legged diabetic. Consider what you ate WITH those carbs, maybe something lacking in your diet, or just a coincidence of time.
Aside from discussions on why you would want to do it.Obviously, you will need to tap into "gray area", but the question is what gray area foods.I am currently thinking oats (real ones) and red lentils. Both are convenient (quick to cook), low GI... (more)
Let's say I have a goal of 2500-3000 calories a day. I want to gain weight. If I also want to do 35-40% of that as carbs... that is 875-1200 carbs a day. I have read many articles on pubmed saying 35-40% is likely close to what hunter/gathers ate.... (more)
The only way I have ever gained weight is by drinking extra calories, especially with orange juice and milk. This keeps me from getting very hungry between meals, and even ample starch isn't enough to make me gain a pound. Not paleo but I was at... (more)
I know dried fruits are usually frowned upon in the paleo community because of the high sugar and low water content. Usually, whenever I eat any type of dried fruit I get really thirsty really fast, and I get a little sugar rush as well. Dates... (more)
