I found this New York Times article to be interesting. The article, Debunking the Hunter-Gatherer Workout, has this to say about the "Hadza people of Tanzania, one of the few remaining populations of traditional hunter-gatherers": The Hadza live... (more)
Really confused about what to do. I love to bike and run but it seems to hurt more than help. I suspect that I have low morning cortisol (I feel like a zombie until about 4 and have felt this way for a year now). Ive been going to the doctors... (more)
Hello. I'm a recent college grad on a shoestring budget. What little money I have I devote to food and I've been on the Paleo track since May (about 4 months now) and I've been impressed with the results. I have grass fed where I can, and I'm not... (more)
Log time guys. Hope your well? I was wondering what is everyone favourite or most effective pre workout meal before they train? I usually stick to chicken breast and fruit. But just looking at what everyone else has? Thanks Neal I do 2 sessions a... (more)
Okay, so I am following a low carb paleo diet. And I recently had some heart rate issues, that turned out to in fact be hyperthyroid in nature. So far as that is concerned, I am waiting six weeks with reduced iodine in my diet (was high, lots... (more)
Hi I posted yesterday re not liking fatty meats-thanks for the useful responses. However I have a few more newbie questions.... Is there such a thing as too much coconut butter? I am absolutely craving it like crazy (didn't before starting... (more)
On what grounds are people voting to close this thread? How does it violate any paleohacks rules?
I read on a post recently where someone was suggesting to rest or don't do physical activity during IF. My personal take is I feel just fine doing any level of activity. I regularly do long hikes the day of an IF, having eaten the night before... (more)
So, I started doing squats (no weight, just my own body weight) and I am surprised at how weak I am. I can do about three sets of 6-8 before I feel weak and my legs are shaking for the rest of the night. How long should I wait before I do... (more)
Does anyone else use a Garmin Forerunner with Firstbeat heartrate Technology to measure calorie expenditure? Or any other HRM to measure their workouts? If so what kind of numbers are you showing for HIIT training, Crossfit, etc?
I have eaten paleo for a month and lost 12lb, and more importantly feel great with so much more energy! However this week I have started exercising (classes and walking) but have lost no more. I eat around 1200 cals a day and don't feel I can... (more)
Hello there! Just turned 20 and I'm back home this summer from college. I'm slowly (with a lot of road bumps), integrating Paleo into my lifestyle. This is something I want to do my health, not just for weight loss. So I'm also trying to find a... (more)
I think your job as a waitress would cover most of your needs, assuming you were busy and not sitting around, it's a lot of movement and carrying stuff around. I'd probably still try and lift heavy weights once or twice a week if possible.
Hi all! I've been GFCF for about two months, Paleo for the last four weeks (though I just started eating free range/grass fed meat, and occasionally sneak some peanut butter) and am very happy with how I feel (got off anxiety/ssri for the first... (more)
Me- After growing up borderline obese as a kid (235lbs in 7th grade), I trained myself into a pretty athletic 23 yr old male, working 4days a week at crossfit and doing ~20 miles per week running. I have experimented with Intermittent fasting... (more)
So I know this lady. I just learned that her hands shake after working out. It does not matter what she does either. Yoga, cardio, weights... anything. Do you have any idea what may be causing this? I thought about a possible sensitivity to... (more)
So I am nearing the start of another round of chemo (monday). I get chemo once every three weeks and for the first two weeks after chemo, I am weak, tired, sick and I sleep a lot. It's been 12 weeks and I see my arms and legs getting flabby :-( I... (more)
Hey all, I've signed up for the September Lake Tahoe Tough Mudder event, and just started seriously training for it, meaning not doing random "play" workouts that I usually do. I'm fishing for some training recommendations. I ran 3.2 miles... (more)
Hello all, I'm interested in getting my first kettlebell, but I have a few concerns. I'm female, 107lbs, 20 years old, and have no weight lifting experience or access to classes right now. What size kettlebell should I use? More importantly,... (more)
Here's an interesting article on exercise and memory. Even more interesting is that those with a BDNF (brain derived neurotrophic factor) blunting response - genetically found in 30% of those with European heritage - after exercise didn't improve... (more)
This is a question for everyone (female AND male) who has a history of disordered eating (starvation, binges, obsessive calorie counting, etc). What steps (besides going paleo, of course) have you taken to resolve the issue? For me, it's been a... (more)
Mark Sisson recommends intervals of play, right? I was thinking of buying a 'rebounder' (mini-trampoline) to use whenever I have a spare 5-10 minutes or so... It would be loads of fun with music, no? I just have trouble getting activity in with... (more)
http://www.shericolberg.com/diabetic-athlete.asp If yes, thoughts? IF no, what other books other that Dr. Bernstein's book would you recommend to a Type 1 diabetic? (more)
Hi guys! This is something I've been noticing lately. Background: I've been paleo in diet for about 9 months, only in the last 1-2 months have I also primal-ized my lifestyle and begun to exercise more regularly (following general advice from... (more)
