So right now, I'm battling a cold (rare sight, indeed, on Paleo foods...) and have an insatiable appetite. I'm listening to my body and eating Paleo foods until satisfaction (not totally jam-packed), but am eating ridiculous amounts...Is this... (more)
Some background: I'm coming up on almost 5 months of hardcore paleo. I follow paleo to the Robb Wolf letter, the only "cheats" I've done is eaten rice 3 times (in 5 months) and I probably eat more fruit than I should. My problem: I'm freezing... (more)
Look at this post: http://perfecthealthdiet.com/?p=4383 and scroll down to "What Happens When There Is a Glucose Deficiency?" and everything following that.
For some reason I have been really just wanting to eat everything in the house when it is cold. It could be that I am just stuck in my house and bored... I am curious though, does the weather have any effect on our appetite? Thanks, Holler... (more)
I find I eat more in the winter, but I've always felt like it was actually that I ate less in the summer because it is so hot and my appetite decreases. Once it cools down my appetite returns to normal.
Is it more natural to let your feet get cold in the winter-- e.g. "minimalist footwear"? Or is it better to really bundle up the feet and keep them warm-- e.g. fur-lined moccasins? What is your favorite winter footwear and why do they work for... (more)
With the arrival of cooler temperatures my cold hands and feet are back. They're way better than they used to be pre-paleo but still a problem-- any special foods, nutrients or techniques you've found to help?
hi everyone, My questions pretty much says it all. Since going paleo about a month ago I am hungry all the time, have a lot of saliver in my mouth which is not pleasant, everything tastes like metal. I find I cannot use metal sppons or forks or... (more)
So, I finally got a cold from my daughters and I was just thinking: Since linoleic acid upregulates an inflammatory response - maybe that's good for fighting off infections (bacterial or viral) and a little extra omega 6 might not be a bad thing... (more)
Would increasing calories (slightly) during a cold/flu/sinus scenario help with recovory. I think this would be along the lines of recovoring from a work out. I feel that most peaple seem to want to eat more when run down whether that be from... (more)
So it looks like I'm getting the second cold/flu/whatever since I started paleo in Jan 2010. Last summer's bout knocked me on my ass. What's weird is that even though I'm in the best health of most of my adult life now, I hardly ever got sick.... (more)
There are a few questions somewhat related to this, but none dead on. Cold therapy has been shown to be helpful for fatloss. I am wondering if you guys think this is a paleo thing or a weird hack. When I think paleo I think African planes. How... (more)
I'm sick at least 1-2 or more times a month (moderate-severe colds). When I'm not "sick" I'm coughing all the time. I take a probiotic every day, and even since eating strict whole30 I've been sick twice (in 3 weeks). This has been going on for... (more)
As I understand it, our Paleo ancestors lived in much chillier times. I simply cannot fathom one of my predecessors sitting, huddled under a Wooly Mammoth pelt by the fire, cold-feeting anybody who tries to share the heat with him. However, here... (more)
I am currently feeling a big cold coming on (headache, chest hurts etc) and I've been upping Vit C, D, taking oil of oregano and the symptoms are subsiding - BUT - I am getting a really sore throat. I have been gargling with salt, but it's not... (more)
Works for me all the time: warm water and about a teaspoon of cayenne pepper -- gargle with it every 15 minutes or so for a couple hours. It almost always clears my sore throat up before the two hours is up.
A friend of mine has been having these cold, numb and white fingers and toes. It appears to be Raynaud's 'disease'. Cold (especially when humid) is the major cause, maybe some stress... Does anyone have any experience or paleo tips for her? She's... (more)
I have noticed that I usually get shivers after eating otherwise normal food. Could this be related to a hypothyroid, or my blood sugar being out of whack?
so I have had pretty chronic nasal congestion for as long as I can remember (am in my early twenties). I was hoping going mostly paleo* would clear it up, but to no avail. In the interest of 80/20 and the pareto principle, etc., are there... (more)
Tim Ferris' new book has an interesting chapter called Ice Age about using the cold for weight-loss and it comes at just the right time (at least here in these northern parts) for some experimenting. His basic premise is that the body burns up... (more)
Aquatic mammals in an ice-cold environment store lots of fat. Think of seals, walruses, whales, and even polar bears. I don't know about cause and effect, but the correlation is not the one you want.
There are a couple related threads but I am just after group opinion through numbers. I would put a poll in if I could, give me a yes/no to fasting and/or exercise. Thank you!
Has anyone read Caesar's Commentary on the Gallic Wars? His discussions of the (paleo) Germanic tribes is very interesting. Meat? Check. Raw dairy? Check. Cold baths? Check. Plenty of time outdoors? Check. Great physical size, strength, and... (more)
I've been following a Paleo/ Primal diet for about a year and a half now. Apart from occasional 'blips' on holiday, I stick to it most of the time. Last winter, no issues with cold hands and feet (I live in England). However, this year my hands... (more)
Since I added MCT oil to my diet, I am finally starting to loose the weight I put on this winter after trying to rebond with butter (definitely not for me) I am loosing inches which is great (knock on wood), but other things are not so great. My... (more)
Hey there! The last few days I had aching tonsils and thought this was because I was sleeing wrong. But today I went from feeling great to extremely sick, cold-like symptoms, dry eyes, aching bones.. Is there anything I can do? I have to... (more)
Okay so I red about the 30-day-cold-shower-challenge and I'm one of the persons who jsut can't pass reading things like these without feeling challenged, so this morning I went under a 100%-cold-water-shower. I was in like, 5 seconds, out, felt... (more)
I keep reading you should take zinc at the beginning of a cold to shorten the length of it. Well, I feel a cold coming on, starting in my throat as usual, and the only zinc I have is Jarrow's Zinc Balance which has 15mg zinc, 1mg copper. The... (more)
