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)
Quick question, Is it the same (as far as the body is concerned) to carb load the night before a hard, fasted workout in the morning with fruit (I've been tending towards eating a lot of grapes, berries, melon) as opposed to starches... (more)
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)
Strength edifice supplements are real fundamental. Umpteen people reckon they should stand a lot of fasting additives to accomplish their goals. This just is not so. In reality to meliorate your habitus you gift need only the fact and a... (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)
When I eat fruit, mainly something sweet like apples or grapes, I get a blocked nose. It clears again after an hour or 2.Things like berries don't appear to do it.It also affects the tubes in my ears and I can feel them full + popping too.Could... (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)
It's obviously not natural but it's still fruit and, presumably, has a similar nutrient profile just with the added convenience of not watching out for seeds. Seedless fruit is easier to eat at your desk but is there more to it? For example,... (more)
If most people practicing a paleo lifestyle follow the 80/20 or 90/10 rule, what's the point of staying away from foods like nuts and fruits if cheat meals/foods are still on the table? I personally struggle with what whole foods should make up... (more)
Hi all, I've been paleo off and on for about a year, but strictly gluten free since I began. Within the last few weeks I've really gotten much stricter about macros, whole foods, soaking any nuts/seeds I eat, etc, and I have some questions... (more)
Everyone says that if you eat a lot of fruit the sugar in it will still make you fat. Fruits are better than m&m's but you can still overeat them and gain weight. Well, then how is it possible that i can eat a LOAD of sugary fruit (like... (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...
Hi, I am currently living in a small beach town in Costa Rica. I do not have a car which makes it difficult to get to the closest super market which is 15 minutes away. This makes it hard for me to get beef and fish. I do have easy access to... (more)

So i have found myself craving fruit like crazy since i started the paleo diet. I know it is just because of the sugars in fruit, but i eat quite a bit of fruit every day. So how much is too much??? any suggestions for alternatives to fruit to... (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)
