Been losing weight on Paleo diet, but very slowly. About 6 kilos in 6 months and lately it seemed to have halted. I have been very good, but for drinking alcohol. Because of health but mostly personal reasons (let's call it emotional... (more)
I understand the purpose of fear, pleasure, and anger (fear of death/anger/fighting for survival, pleasure from sex/reproducing etc), but what purpose would sadness have served? Or is sadness a modern thing?
Been Paleo for about 6 months and am finding my emotions are a bit out of whack. I have found that I am lashing out and having extreme emotional reactions to several different types of life situations (sad, happy, stress, etc.) and therefore this... (more)
It sounds like you may have gone too low-carb. I'd try including some squashes and potatoes, maybe supplement with some 5-HTP for a couple of weeks and see how you feel.
I've always had a tendency towards minimalism, which I assume grows out an excellent case of OCD that makes me hate clutter. Once or twice a year I will go through all my possessions and cull them down to what I view as essentials. However, I... (more)

Morning everyone! I've lately been having appetite issues (lack of it, more like) and some fellow cavepeople on here suggested I try a full fast to 'reawaken' my appetite. I've fasted before, and I like the idea; besides, I kind of do it on a... (more)
Depression leaves you cold and heartless sometimes and I wonder if that could also be one of the causes for you to lose your feelings or love for someone. I had a bf who loved me but not anymore cause he's been depressed for months now and he has... (more)

All I know is that when I was vegan/vegetarian I was a cranky, constipated bitch most of the times. Now, i'm happier, healthier, enjoying my fat and meat like a crazy person and wishing all to live long and prosper. 'Nuff said :)
