Ok I am probably going to irritate some of you with a redundant question but there are so many contradictions on past postings I dont know what to believe. I have been migrating over to a paleo diet for the last 9 weeks and things are going VERY... (more)
All except for the very strictest folks indulge in chocolate, from everything I've read on PaleoHacks and in the blogsophere. The higher the percentage cacao content you can tolerate, the less the sugar, and the less the impact on your blood... (more)
I just slept 8 solid hours in a pitch black and deathly quiet cabin in the woods, and was reminded that that only seems to happen there. It reinforced for me how opposite the situation is at home where I never enter deep sleep and wake frequently... (more)
What are your thoughts on Stevia-sweetened chocolate? I tried some today and ended up eating an entire bar (about 360 calories, whoops!). It was delicious...but is it ideal? Is it better to have like 80% dark chocolate with actual sugar in it? Or... (more)
So I spend an inordinate amount of time in my office at work, mostly staring at pieces of paper or a computer screen, and I am wondering how to do the least amount of damage to my eyesight. I have two big windows, so I can get a fair amount of... (more)
Hey gang Upon reading how healthy cocoa is and dark choclate...i have been eating half a bar of 85% cocoa dark chocolate per day for a few months I think that this may have lowered my testosterone..it is the only change in diet I have made... (more)
It is probably not the soy, one of your ex's may have hired someone to curse you, Voodoo is particularly effective for this purpose. Did any of them take hair clippings from you, or toenail clippings?
If I sit down for more than 20 mins and sit up I have really bad pins and needles in my leg and foot it seems This might be a cause for my dark circles as the blood stagnates under the skin due to poor circulation I've read Other than exercise... (more)
I get those big dark chocolate bars that are formed into a nice grid of squares... until I try to snap or cut them apart and it just all cracks & breaks apart and makes a mess of squares, triangles, other odd shapes of varying sizes, shards... (more)
I leave in a couple of days to go back to New York for the Spring semester. I was with my mate who sleeps in a very dark room, and I did notice an amazing difference in my sleep quality. I know some people have talked about this. Here's the rub.... (more)
Lately the color of my urine has been darker in the morning. I disregarded it at first but this has been ongoing for the past month and decided to do some Googling regarding this issue. According to a few websites darker urine can be a result of... (more)
I recently created a dark "theme" for Paleo Hacks that makes browsing the site in the evening a lot easier on the eyes. I originally made it for personal use, but over the last few days I've ironed out the details so that I could share it with... (more)
If only I could install this on my iOS web browser. I spend many an hour in the dark nursing my baby to sleep reading paleo hacks with the brightness turned to the lowest setting. Hahaha
Ok, I know gluten free beer isn't strictly paleo or even loosely paleo, but there are days when I crave a nice dark beer. First off, I haven't able to find a dark gluten free beer in any store. Secondly, if I did, I'm sure it would be... (more)
My mother has always had constant dark under eye circles. I was blessed with them too. I would love to not wear make up but it is just not an option, I have had more than one person ask if I was sick the first time they saw me sans make up. Two... (more)
What amazes me is that dark chocolate is recommended. I really liked a brand with about 76% cocoa content. This still would contain about 23 grams of sugar in a 100gr bar. I'd eat 50 gr to 75 gr most of the time. Considering the amounts I eat,... (more)
Dark Chocolate has many health benefits, and most Paleo people do eat it. However, you should only eat 2-3 squares of a chocolate bar a couple of times a week at most. It can be a problem if you eat too much.
I ate a bunch of dark chocolate (nearly 90% and 99%). I probably had about 600 calories worth. I think i just ate it too fast. Afterward I felt very sick, and the only thing that seemed to make me feel better was eating FRUIT. Why do you think... (more)
