Last night was my friends birthday and we all went out for dinner to Rio Grand (totally not paleo friendly, I know). I've recently started a 12 week program (Andy Morgan's approach to LeanGains) which has been going really well. To jump right... (more)
I'm 16. I'm 160lbs 5'6.(eww) Yes I have fasted before.
I have been following a low carb primal diet for 6 months and, with the addition of lots of walking and hiking, have lost 60 lbs in the process! Prior to making this change my fasting glucose was running in the 110's, which prompted my search... (more)
What would you make with Aidell's Mango and Jalepeno Chicken Sausage, if you also had on hand: mixed frozen veg (broccoli, mushrooms, onion, red pepper), frozen spinach, grape tomatoes, fresh red onion, fresh basil, spaghetti squash, coconut... (more)
Paleohacks is the main forum I post at, so I realize that this may be more of a Paleohacks thing than a Paleo thing. But I am getting seriously disturbed at the amount of eating disorder talk that goes on. To clarify, I'm not talking about people... (more)
Very disturbed as to what the user above has to offer on the subject and I hope it is not indicative of the kind of people that frequent the site...
Like many I am super busy at work. Im an er doc, working 12 hours a day 6 days a week. we have 5 kids...oldest is 10, so even though my wife stays home, when I ask my wife to more then she is already doing, I get the hairy eyeball. Cooking the... (more)
Hey paloeohackers! I am currently in college and my hall building does not have any cooking facilities (although we do have a fridge)... I can only think of smoked salmon and cold smoked ham and smoked bacon... I think this is okay, but eating... (more)
today i went to mcdonald's for the first time in months and got a quarter pounder with cheese without the bun (yeah yeah dairy isn't very paleo) and some fries. it made me a little gassy but i forgot how sinfully delicious fast food can be. i... (more)
Hey everyone, I have been thinking about staring green juicing and I know there are mixed feelings on this in the paleo community. I have been paleo for about 6 months and don't plan on going back to the dark side. Over the past 18 months I have... (more)
I know the optimal solution is hitting up whole foods and going to the salad bar or something, but as far as fast food goes, how problematic are the fast food chain chicken salads? As long as I only use a tiny amount of italian dressing any... (more)
@Chipotle I'll do extra streak, salsa, guac, lettuce, and sometimes sour cream @In-N-Out I'll do protein style no cheese - no "sauce" LAST RESORT IF I HAVE TO, chick-fil-a nuggets annnnd otherwise I do anything thats meat hopefully veggies
I scoffed at the idea of walking for fitness and stuck to sprints and infrequent runs. However, after being required to walk 2.5 miles in 35 minutes, I can see it's no joke. The experience got my heart rate up and worked my legs. However, I'm not... (more)
I usually do 17-18 minute miles walking 10 miles/day. If I go to 15 minutes I feel like I'm speedwalking, and am more comfortable jogging.
Hey everyone! I'm interested in doing a bone broth fast and had a few questions. First how long is ideal for a fast? Second, I have a butcher near by but the meat isn't organic. They do sell bones for $5 for like 25 lbs. I have a whole foods about... (more)
Okay so I fell off the band wagon pretty bad this last week and I really need to re-establish my relationship with food. I've been strict Paleo for six months but I'm kind of an all or nothing person so when I mess up one day, I binge, and it's... (more)
no doubt you will lose fat, and the more you move during the fast the more you lose go for it, experiment! I personally have done an 8day and a 9day fast and it is difficult. I do one day fasts but not long fasts anymore.
Sometime in August I plan on getting a breast augmentation, which is around 2 months, but before then my doctor recommends I lose between 5-10 Kgs. Currently I am 5'6" and 165 pounds. I heard about the paleo through a friend, and have been reading... (more)
I realize that I am almost asking the world but I wanted to put the question out there. Do you know of any cheap and healthy food you can order out? Healthy = Paleo/Primal approved (Conventional meat and veggies is fine) that would NOT count as a... (more)
There is the PHD protocol, which I think some refer to as a Ketogenic Fast. Fiber and short-chain fats (coconut oil usually): http://perfecthealthdiet.com/?p=1296
Just wanted to put this out into the Paleo Universe. Baja Fresh can be Paleo. Order the veggie bare burrito with shrimp (or chicken, or steak), and leave out the beans, cheese (if you are doing no dairy), and sour cream. The "bare style" burrito... (more)
Today I will be starting my elimination diet. I still have some questions. I thought about starting the diet with a water fast for a couple of days since I've been exposed to some gluten and sugar (ahem). And then sip on some home made bone broth... (more)
I know your best bet would be a can of sardines from the grocery store, but are there any fast food places (nationwide chains) that offer a meal that could actually be considered a good paleo meal? I was thinking possibly Chipotle's burrito bowl,... (more)
I mad the mistake of eating fast food 3 days ago. Ever sense I've been getting randomly and morbidly depressed, queasy and my energy level sucks. Sufficed to say I'll never make this mistake again. Going bunless isn't enough! So how do I... (more)
Just wondering if anyone has gone a day or two eating just coconut oil and water? What effects could it have on your body/metabolism? Would it be worth a try to kick-start fat burning? While we are on the topic, what do any of you think about... (more)
I set out once to do an entire week on coconut oil...I ended up feeling nauseous constantly, and even vomited...I ended up doing several days...this was back when I had a very punishing attitude towards my body, I love intermittent fasting now,... (more)
Hi Hackers! please help! after nearly 60 days days on Paleo, no weight loss, significant weight gain, I tried the Adkins Fat Fast for 3 days. No weight loss here either, but my bloating was gone! Today is day one back on Paleo afer Fat Fast,... (more)
Say someone wanted to alternate-day fast (ADF), eating every other day. So they eat 0 calories the first day, and I imagine they would naturally gravitate towards eating ~4,000 calories the next day. But what about protein? Will they naturally... (more)
The liver will store some excess protein (hepatic protein stores). However, it's not unlimited. I don't know exactly how much... but you'll definitely not make it through the 24 hours without some muscle catabolism. I wouldn't recommend ADF, but... (more)
