Hi everyone, I'm Marianne, I'm from Amsterdam and I will live a very strict paleo life for a year (eating, moving, being outside and more) as an experiment to show what paleo living can do to you. I'd like to do medical tests before and after to... (more)
I was thinking about performing a N=1 experiment to see if I could hack a cholesterol test. I'm not at all worried about my levels (around 220), but I worry that I might need to get a test for insurance purposes, and they don't care that my heart... (more)
So, I am thinking of trying ketosis again, because the first time I did it, I only went three weeks, I didn't feel good, and I did not lose weight. I was wondering if anyone has experimented with ketosis who does not need to lose a huge amount of... (more)

So a general overview: I've been paleo for over 2 years. I used to be vegan, I used to work out 4x a week, was very lean and strong. I then started commuting to a new job and then comfort eating and put on about 2 stone in 3 months. I've... (more)
I'm a big guy, very big. 6'5" 300lbs. I recently upped my Carbs after months of VLC and found that my weight loss didn't stall, it went faster. If I were to eat this diet what do you think my results would be? Tubers - Yams, Waxy-type potatoes... (more)
