I see there are many recipes of paleo pancakes, brownies, ice cream, cinnamon rolls (oooh myy, looks soo good..), etc. Is this something you include in your diet, or do you stay away from baking and keep it totally clean?
Hey, I've started to Paleo a few days ago. I'm also training with main lifts such as squats, deadlifts, presses, chins etc. So, want to make a cheat day once a week, prolly saturday or sunday and want to eat pizza, hamburger, kebab,... (more)
I decided to give the Paleo lifestyle a go as advised by my personal trainer (he loves it). So far apart from the cravings for bread i am doing not too bad. My main reason for getting into Paleo is weight loss and for the health benefits. However... (more)
I'm going to an overnight week summer camp and will not be able to eat paleo, should I bring snacks like nuts and stuff and have those instead of sugary granola bars an just have the meals? its my fifth year going but first time paleo lifestyle,... (more)
dude if you're 15 and at summer camp, getting laid should be your priority, not being the point dexter with the organic pate and veggies. Girls >sports>life goals>food
Hey everyone. I was just wondering about cheat meals and being paleo. I am an active then girl who does paleo mostly 85-90% of the time...but sometimes, im with friends and they will have brownies or icecream and I just have to have some! I'm not... (more)
I've been eating a Primal diet for the past 3 years. On my longer stretches without any cheats, I find that my doodoos are not that solid, more like kind of soft and greasy. I'm guessing that it's from the high fat content of my diet. I'm... (more)
I had some herb crusted zucchini pan fried in what probably was vegetable oil followed by some natural vanilla bean ice cream hot fudge Sunday with almond shavings. What about you?
Hello again :) I do not expect that someone here remembers when I did a paleo proclamation just 3 weeks ago. But I feel the change inside me and it is so real and so worth it, that I wanted to tell what I went through for those of you who... (more)
I've just started the Paleo diet. I started a little less than a month ago (3/18/13). My first two weeks of starting I saw an initial weight gain and then about a week or two ago just started losing and can really tell that I'm losing fat in my... (more)
I'm trying the paleo diet, but I LOVE sushi. I love Boston Rolls without cream cheese... The only thing in that that's not paleo would be the rice... How often would it be okay to cheat and eat this (1x Boston Roll, sans cream cheese), provided... (more)
I started my Paleo lifestyle almost a week ago and I've gone from 183lbs to 178lbs. I plan on sticking with this way of eating for a long time, I definitely feel better about myself already and I don't really have the cravings that I did the first... (more)
If you could choose any one food/dish/desert/whatever that you could eat with absolutely no ill effect FOR THE REST OF YOUR DAYS. Rather, no effect whatsoever. No calories, no nothing, what would it be. If I had to choose, definitely... (more)
I've been doing Paleo for almost 2 weeks, and loved the results so far (Yes, I know the 10 pounds I lost the first week was water weight, but still.), today I wasn't in the mood to cook, and decided to let myself go to Subway and get a footlong... (more)
Don't be so hard on yourself. Re-examine your relationship with food. Consider it a "treat" not a "cheat" because you didn't do anything morally wrong, you just ate something that tastes great and has a bad effect on your body. You are suffering... (more)
Hi all, I'm new to this and wanting some advice/experiences from those more experienced than myself, especially if you have/had PCOS. I am a 24yo female, 5' 7" and 153 lbs, closer to a size 8 than a 10. I have been paleo for about three... (more)
Ok so I'm fairly new to paleo and have a few questions. I started about two weeks ago after reading Robb Wolf's The Paleo Solution. I haven't noticed a huge difference, although daily headaches which I used to get are gone. I'm not 100%... (more)
Hi - I've been on paleo for a 11 days. I did have a cheat day after the 7th day and I fear it messed things up though Im trucking along. Can't seem to find a definitive answer on this. ALSO can you use manwich sauce on lean ground turkey breast or... (more)
I almost ask this as a rhetorical question because I know it's terrible, it's sweet, artificial and it is ohh so cooling. But that's the problem it freshens your breath more than anything else short term. It is far too inconvenient for me to... (more)
I am wondering if anyone here has a cheat meal or cheat day scheduled on a weekly or monthly basis? Or has anyone tried this and felt like it didn't work because it became a slippery slope? Or does anyone just have opinions on scheduling a cheat? (more)
I personally have no luck scheduling cheats. I think it fetishizes the "forbidden" foods too much. I'm much better when I only have "cheats of opportunity": unplanned cheats that just happen because of unforseen circumstances.
Recently all the evidence has been pointing to coffee as bad for my stomach and increasing my cold sore recurrence but I cannot (will not) give it up. One of my greatest joys in life has been bulletproof coffee for breakfast most days but I... (more)
It is artificial and has been known to cause problems, but on what level would you put this cheat? In my mind I have some sugar/vegetable oil on the low end of the spectrum and gluten/wheat at the very top. I have been finding mixed evidence... (more)
I've begun to notice something about my cheat days - they typically seem to cause more weight loss than regular days. I've seen as much as half a kilo drop off (and stay off) after a cheat day whilst plateauing for a while on regular days. I have... (more)
For example you were totally strict on paleo for a year but later you cheated and ate like whole jar of hazelnut cream and ate lots of grains and would do this for a few days and then go back to paleo. Anyone knows how long does it take to get... (more)
When you eat out in restaurants do you assume they are using vegetable oils to fry/cook the food and accept it or do you ask specifically what the food is cooked in? Also do you ask about gluten in soups and stews or let the little details go when... (more)
I've been on a strict Paleo diet for almost 2 years and I'm loving life however if I could have one cheat meal without any consequence I would loveeee a Grilled Cheese!
