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)
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)
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)
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)
Does anyone know, without accounting for exercise, how many grams of carbs a day are desirable to maintain a steady source of glucose for your brain? If you've read some of my other questions, you know that I'm trying to get back on the paleo... (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?
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)
Ok so gradually I have been able to phase out carbs. I would start with doing Paleo + dairy and then over time my demand for dairy products would go so I didn't need that either. So I was getting along really well until I was forced to eat carbs.... (more)
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)
HI Everyone, I continue to struggle with signifiant low energy and headaches after 8 months of eating Paleo. A quick summary: 1) Started VLC, thinking this would be the best - For roughly 4-5 months I ate between 30 and 65 grams of carbs per... (more)
Hi guysSo I went to the eden festival in scotland last weekend (was a lot of fun), however eating paleo was soooo hard as there were no foods stalls that did anything paleo (it was all potatoes, pizza, cake and maybe the odd vegan thing like a... (more)
A day or 2 days after an intense workout I get pretty sore. Are those days important for upping carbs in addition to the workout day? I usually eat a good amount of carbs on workout days, but any other day not so much.
I've been subtracting fiber from the total carbs to get net carbs, but should resistant starch also be subtracted? Put another way, does anyone know if resistant starch is included in the total carb count that we see on nutrition... (more)
I am trying to add a simple, shelf-stable carb to my diet as I am very active and trying to keep at the 150g-200g threshold (it's where I feel best). I already eat a good amount of sweet potatoes and am planning on adding organic raw buckwheat... (more)
I recently started counting macros (a few days ago actually) and have been hitting them since. I eat whole foods, non of the Pop Tart IIFYM stuff. I am not fully Paleo as I consume SPROUTED grains and legumes. I don't eat gluten, fake sugars,... (more)
I eat plenty of sweet potato (and white potatoes), banana, various other fruits... The occasional squash but I sometimes find them binding. I try to keep the white rice to a minimum but allow for it. Frankly getting a little board (and my body... (more)
For me my staple Carb is Sweet Potato. I Also eat frequently butter squash, pumpkin, beet, carrots, yucca and banana. But with all these carbs specialy banana be careful with your sugar intake. Good Luck!
Hey guys, I'm an active 20 year old female student and from my past experience I tolerate carbs quite well. However over the past couple of weeks I've been getting highs and lows in blood sugar which is affecting my hunger, moods and energy... (more)
Hi there, My question relates to the issue of carb intake and subsequently fat adaptation. I need to eat about 150g of carbs per day to maintain my optimal bodyweight of 79kg. My hight is 6.1" and do a bodyweight workout twice per... (more)
