I've been on a weight loss journey for several years now. It seems that no matter what I do, my body likes to hover around 162-165. 162 is the lowest I have ever had as an adult since starting the journey, and most of the time I'm 165. It seems no... (more)
I think one of the hardest things to deal with I'm currently battling is the idea that I can't ever have a hamburger with bun again. I mean, I know I can, but as soon as I do, I'll surely get incredibly sick from the bun. Now, I know the proper... (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)
What change to your Paleo diet are you contemplating? Or have you likely already arrived at your life time food choices?
Since going paleo, have you found a sense of contentment, purpose, or has going paleo been another source of anxiety in your life? For me, it's a mixture of everything depending on the time and the weather.... How do you all deal with the "highs"... (more)

This is something I've been thinking about alot lately. It hasn't made me question how I'm eating, or how I'm voting with my dollar, as I still believe that this is the right way to eat, and most everyone would benefit from it. I want to scream... (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 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)
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!
