Maybe I shouldn't be on this site anymore :P But seriously, I'd been a paleo enthusiast for around a year (I was already gluten free as I'm allergic to it -as well as corn-), and while I noticed many health benefits (decrease in bipolar symptoms... (more)
Hey all- Relatively new to the Paleo Diet but am so happy with the results so far. My question is: if you eat a moderate amount of fruit in a day, do you need to watch the fats you then take in? Are the sugars in the fruit going to... (more)
I am an athlete (basketball player) currently on the paleo diet. I am looking to lean out, but feel as if I will not get enough energy if I take both fruits and nuts out of my diet. Which of the two if taken out would yield better results for... (more)
nuts are far more calorie dense than fruit. take the nuts out, keep the fruit. it's VLC mythos that fruit will magically prevent fat loss. energy balance will always rule, even if people are too stupid to believe it.
I've noticed that most people on paleohacks seem to eat mostly meat vs. mostly fruits and vegetables. I myself have been eating more meat and at first felt great now not so much. I'm wondering if anyone primarily eats vegetables nuts and fruits... (more)
My son loves raisin. I understand that it's a fruit and the sugar content, but I never hear anyone talk about them. Are raisins avoided for some reason I am unaware of?
Are raisins avoided for some reason I am unaware of? Raisins should be avoided because they have astronomically high sugar levels, and half of that sugar is fructose. Fructose is toxic. The body can dispose of it safely in small amounts but... (more)
Hello! I had a heat exhaustion 3 days ago and have had a mild fever since. Today I was craving some apples, so I ate two quite big apples. Now I feel bad, because I feel that it will sabotage my weight loss. :( Can the craving be from the... (more)
I know dried fruits are usually frowned upon in the paleo community because of the high sugar and low water content. Usually, whenever I eat any type of dried fruit I get really thirsty really fast, and I get a little sugar rush as well. Dates... (more)
I've been doing paleo for about 7-8 months now, and somehow I am finding it hard to get in calories. I am female, 5'8'', around 140 lbs, and have gotten fairly lean, but am looking to lose the last bit of belly fat. I work out 5-6 days a week, and... (more)
Hi, I'm completely new to paleo, I've actually only on week 2. I'm doing a project where I'm doing paleo for a month, then vegetarian, then vegan, just to see how each makes me feel. Anyway, I get up very early for work and the last thing I... (more)
Eating seasonally makes perfect sense and goes along with other paleo doctrine but I naturally question all things. I've been tentatively eating seasonally too, but not taking it too seriously. CW says that the human diet in temperate... (more)
I have been successfully paleo for 60 days. I feel great and couldn't be happier with the results I have seen. However, in those 60 days, I have had absolutely no fruit. I'm not a big fan to begin with, so it wasn't too hard. But I'd like to... (more)
Fat loss is not all, you may regret avoiding all fruits when you get older. Berries, for example, and probably especially strawberries and blueberries are good for at least some of memory/cognition/learning...
I am a 16 yo female, 5' 5.5", around 110lb, 14% BF. I want to gain muscle and loose fat. I workout every day, strength training (I love lifting weights) 5x a week and power yoga the other 2x. I also do HIIT or Conditioning work 3x a... (more)
I am almost 2 weeks into doing Paleo which I chose for weight loss. I think I mistakenly thought that just by virtue of eliminating all the bread/pasta/carbs, diet soda and dairy that I would just lose weight, but I don't think that's the case.... (more)
Going on the Paleo diet, my goals are to live a healthier life style, and to live the way my body was meant to function. I love Paleo! I feel amazing, but my other goal is also to weight loss. How many servings of fruit are okay to have on... (more)
i am no expert but i find more than 2 pieces of fruit is too much.
I know I've asked way too many questions like this, but this is one really getting to me. Pre-paleo, I'd eat 5-6 servings of fruit a day and 2 or 3 chocolate bars. Only now do I realize the amount of sugar i was consuming. ever since going... (more)

Hey, so I'm wondering, what should you have in a post workout meal if you follow Nate Miyaki's or John Kiefer's nutritional protocols of eating the majority of carbs at night, ASSUMING you train fasted in the early morning? I'm just curious... (more)
Are you are all familiar with the Fruitarian? What do you think of him? Nevermind that that amount of endurance running will likely significantly damage his skeletal system well before retirement, that amount of fruit consumption has got to... (more)
So, a lot of paleo eaters have all but sworn off fruit. Some of them say "I don't eat fruit..." to preface certain statements. Veggies are fine, meat is grand. I like those but what's the thing with fruit? I'm not doing this to lose weight. I... (more)
So our family is good friends with a local farmer, and recently we received a LOT of fruit as a kind gift. And by a lot I mean 2 crates of peaches, 1 crate of tomatoes, 7 containers of berries, and 1 bushel of apples. Any ideas on what to do with... (more)
Since going paleo, I've limited my fruit intake to just berries (though I eat a lot of them). I'm staying with my parents atm who have a tree in their back yard producing an abundance of cooking apples (I think these are called crabapples in the... (more)
I've asked several questions in the category of post workout, and after deciding to take the advice offered and increase my intake of carbohydrate, I am just wanting to know, is the window of opportunity for when your body processes carbohydrate... (more)
