It feels like there have been lots of folks focusing on weight loss and such... but I feel like there is so much more. What other great things have you noticed or changes have you made since going Paleo/Primal? Physical or not? Me personally?... (more)
I have been lacto-paleo for only three weeks, but the things I've noticed have been fairly startling. I am not overweight, but I have seemed to always carry my weight under my navel, and that is shrinking daily. It was fat I thought I was doomed... (more)
Yep.... I'm a 55 year old feeling like I have the energy of a 20 year old. I have a 1.5 year old Red-Bone Coon Hound that is very high energy and I wear him out. He quits running before I do!
For me it was Iodoral. I'm not interested in eating seaweed everyday nor is there a good source around my area. 2nd would be selenium and 3rd magnesium. Update March 9, 2012: I'm reneging the Iodoral, selenium, and Mg claims. (more)
Coffee has done wonders for me!
I used to be a neurotic calorie counter for a good 1 year before starting Paleo. At first, it got me places; I got good grades at university, I learned the piano, and I was an overall way happier person. But then it got to be an obsession.... (more)
The world has got its problems. Finances and economies are in trouble. But the word crisis can also mean: 'opening to the future'. An opportunity... Have these financial troubles changed your paleo lifestyle? Changed your priorities? Changed your... (more)
I have been Paleo for 6 months now, and have had no weight loss. I am an active Crossfitter (5-6 days a week of activity) so I know that while my BF has dropped, my weight has increased because of muscle. I have tried eating NC and VLC to no... (more)
Have you read or commented on these articles? "If you start asking around, you???ll find that a surprising number of people have GI issues. The incidence of gut problems, major and minor, seems to be on the rise ??? and it seems to be distinct to... (more)
What change to your Paleo diet are you contemplating? Or have you likely already arrived at your life time food choices?
Do your feet (the physical feet, not walking mechanics) seem different after long-term barefoot walking/running? Here's a study concluding that born-barefoot walkers have wider feet than born-shoe... (more)
At the risk of subjecting you to yet another banal and certainly verbose question, I decided to take my answer to another question as the basis for a different topic. I am going to post a few snippets from something Dr Kurt Harris wrote on another... (more)
Are there any artist painter, actress, musician, private and proffesional? Do you experienced any change in your art? I think i m doing for some time more realistic art. im sure my art change since being on paleo. I still have to figure it out... (more)
I feel like my tasetbuds are much less sensitive than they used to be, and now that I've started eating Paleo/Primal I'm trying to stay away from too much salt. I think it's going to be one my hardest addictions to break. I've already conquered... (more)
I'm looking for people who know and/or have experienced changes in their psoriasis with a paleo diet/lifestyle. I've been having a little bit of psoriasis around the elbows and knees for some 7 years. I was generally healthy and fit, and was... (more)
Do you eat the same foods or macro ratios every day, or change things around? And how often? In terms of overall food intake (by calories, if you like) I think it's good to vary your intake, some days eating more to boost metabolism, some days... (more)
I'm just curious if anyone has noticed a big change in how this forum is used or the types of answers over the years? This first popped into my mind when I found Bulletproof blah blah everywhere and started thinking about how this site was before... (more)
When I made the (abrupt) switchover from (organic) SAD to Paleo, I suffered from constipation, something that continued appearing from time to time. What I have learnt is that, for me at least, the most important factor is my gut bacteria. Since... (more)
So I started the Paleo lifestyle about 3 weeks ago. I eat only meat/fish/eggs, non-starchy veggies, and nuts/avocado, with the occasional piece of 90% dark chocolate. I eat about 60-80 grams of carbs a day, 1200-1400 calories, and I exercise... (more)
Expeller-pressed coconut oil is healthier and, at least on the international commodities market, cheaper than canola oil. So why don't more restaurants use it as their cooking oil of choice, particularly as its reputation for being a healthy oil... (more)
This link struck me as to just how far gone the standard american diet is: http://www.buzzfeed.com/mattbellassai/45-people-you-wont-believe-actually-exist-6z51?sub=1869460_694499 Its amazing how many of these are food related, from the paleo... (more)
Keep your culture in America and not contaminate the rest of the world? You have to come from somewhere else to appreciate how much America smells of Cinnabon. It's gone too far, you'll never rescue it.
I'm looking to go Paleo/Primal in the next few weeks. I've been doing a lot of research but I'm worried I'm going to find it really really hard as I have a far from perfect diet at the moment and I can be quite a fussy eater. Just wondering what... (more)
Stop reading and just do it. Make adjustments along on the way, there's no need to be perfect as long as you are better off than yesterday. Rice and sugar coated corn flakes. But looking back i don't care for them. The food i eat now tastes way... (more)
Have you ever managed to get a food place to switch from margerine to butter, cage to pastured eggs etc? My local cafe is pretty trendy, they use fancy sourdough, redonkulous espresso, lots of handmade goodies, but there is a big tub of meadowlea... (more)
Seriously, the worst they can say is no. Be very friendly and casually say "heyyy... any chance you may offer butter as an option sometime instead of just margarine - maybe charge .50 or $1 more for the customer if they want it?" 1. You asked.... (more)
I'm studying computer science right now (2 years ago I liked mathematics and wanted a cool career, so I decided computer science would probably be best), but after a year of paleo I'm starting to hate computers more and more. They are just boring.... (more)

A very good friend of mine has just been diagnosed with lupus. I looked through the threads on here, and found some scattered information, but would love if anyone has specific info with links to articles I could send her. She has been a... (more)
I've been doing Paleo for a little over a month now I guess, I'm not too good with tracking time, but in that period I've noticed a lot of changes. What is the SINGLE best change you've noticed? I'll go first: Best bowel movements ever! I always... (more)
