Hi, I am very strict paleo for 6 days a week. Usually do the Sisson type menu- eats few fruits, lots of veggies, big dinner with a good cut of meat etc. However I found when I add one cheat day it just speeds up my metabolism like crazy and I... (more)
I spent 4 straight weeks only Paleo - doing amazing! Then, started traveling for work again. What is the best way to get back to the results I was seeing in the shortest timeframe?
Ok,let's say you're eating out and everything available to you has some sort of Paleo-No-No in it. Soy, Sugar, Grain, etc. When it comes down to decision time, is there a lesser of evils?

I have been tryin to stick to a paleo diet , grains or legumes is not the problem for me , i literally never crave them . However i am constantly binging on dairy foods , mainly pizza , ice cream and cheese wontons from the chinese restaurant ,... (more)
pizza , ice cream and cheese wontons.., general tso chicken BTW, all three are heavy in grains and sugars which are far worse (imo) than dairy. Perhaps you are using these as cravings for wheat/sugar unknowingly...
I've read all the big words (that I can never remember) why we need to carb up if we are following a LC or VLC to chew up some body fat reserves to reduce our body fat % However if our ancient ancestors didn't have easy access to carb dense... (more)
For any of you out there who doesn't know anyone who is paleo, I bet you guys can relate. So it's my friend's birthday next week, and we're going out for a meal. Brilliant, I thought. Only it turns out it's a 'set meal'. So for starters it's... (more)
You will be fine. 80/20 rule applies - you need to enjoy life too.
So I've been paleo for a couple months now and was recently at a halloween party. At the party I had a brownie and a very small piece of cookie cake. Already I feel extremely bloated and also have a headache. Does anyone have any good ideas for... (more)
Just go back to eating the way you normally do. don't stress about it. Cheats happen, and the best thing to do is to go back to eating normal.
I'll admit it; I do. I'll be clean for 5 or 6 days, and then I'll succumb to Chick-Fil-A. Then the next week, maybe some rice and beans. The next week, pizza. Nine months paleo, but I will honestly say I haven't gone 30 days gluten free, at the... (more)
Not going TO party, visiting a friend and watching Phantom of the Opera (so exciting, I know!) Though they live minutes away from the strip, and well, you know. It's Vegas. Driving from L.A, I have to consider both the commute and the weekend. I... (more)
So, I've been pretty strict Paleo for about 5 months... I am extremely active (college athletics and crossfit) and have always been relatively healthy. I have no auto-immune disorders, celiac, etc. and I'm not trying to lose any... (more)
Ok, so I started paleo about a month ago. I've been pretty good about it so far. The first "cheat" meal I had was an anniversary dinner about two and a half weeks in, but it was still very minimal cheating. As in, I had a bite of my boyfriend's... (more)
I've been eating primarily paleo since last sept, sometimes more on the Mark Sisson end of the spectrum, sometimes more whole30-esque. I've lost about 40 lbs of fat, which was much needed. I no longer eat this way primarily for the weight loss,... (more)
I don't go full-SAD per se, but sometimes I find myself eating "that one, innocent meal/snack" and going into kind of a slippery slope. Usually that means, a little here, a little there, and then I'll cut it out for a couple weeks 'til it starts... (more)
Three months paleo (some days good, some days...not so good), I have seen results, lost almost 10lbs, but I'm in it for the long haul. And some days, I cheat. Like, hard core. I kick myself and get upset, but then start a new day, but some days I... (more)
Hi! I am thinking about starting a Paleo lifestyle, or at least try whole30 (for general better health (I have IBS, migraines and random/vague pains) and weight loss), but I am not 100% sure yet. I thought "trying won't hurt", but now I am reading... (more)
is it acceptable to eat junk food non-paleo during once or twice a year, im graduating high school, and and im going to be attending some grad-parties, and i was wondering if it was okay to eat chips, cookies, burgers, hot dogs, pizza, and other... (more)
Of course it is. Sustainability is far more important than 100% adherence, especially when you've earned it. Stuff your face, enjoy yourself, and recommit yourself to eating healthy afterwards.
I hear people talk about the "80 / 20" way of eating Paleo, and when I they admit to what the other 20% is, it's usually that they eat potatoes, some sort of dairy product, or even just a chocolate bar. I haven't heard anyone admit to eating any... (more)
I don't vary from a strict paleo diet except for maybe once every 2 months. But I just cheated with a LOT of So Delicious coconut ice cream and dark chocolate. Of course I feel bad because of all the sugar but I'm really noticing that I'm... (more)
"I don't vary from a strict paleo diet except when I do, and then it makes me feel really sick, and I wonder why, except I know quite well why, yet still I ask people for their opinions." Do I have this basically right? I have my own versions of... (more)
UGH! I took a vacation a few weeks ago and indulged for 4 days on grains, sugars, all the nasty crap I've been avoiding for 6 months and now I'M MISERABLE! My gut is rumblie, my stools are funky, my breath is blech, and I am bloated to the... (more)
Sometimes I do want to splurge and get a deli sandwich for lunch (I still do think the sandwich is one of the best inventions ever). The question is, which kind is the lesser of all evils - wheat, multi-grain, rye, pumpernickel, a wrap? Some of... (more)
My husband and I have been eating 80/20 Primal for a couple of years. We both have noticed that when we eat "cheat" foods or eat a lot of carbs, we tend to feel sick or jittery in a way that never occurred before. For example, pizza never used to... (more)
I suspect that I'm intolerant to grains, so I did a strict paleo diet with four very tummy friendly dishes, low carb style, and after 10 days, just when the low-carb flu was over, my tummy was feeling marvellous. I hadn't felt so good since... (more)
Hello dears. After so many years of experimentation, I've found that a low-Lectin no-sugar diet makes me feel optimal. This is the exclusion of... -dairy -tubers -corn -minimal eggs -nuts -pork -fruit -honey/agave/all sugars By optimal I mean... (more)
