I never really though of fruit as real food that you would eat in a meal. To me, fruit falls in the same category as nuts and seeds. They're good as snacks and that's it. I think they are nature's candy. I find it so easy to overeat or binge on... (more)
Fruits are not necessary as depending on seasonality, they were not always available. A lot of research is starting to come to light about metabolic pathways, fructose, and seasonality. It's some pretty cool stuff and it will be cool to see what... (more)
Hi, Which fruits and vegetables are heathier cooked than raw? I was thinking that maybe carrots are heathier cooked because it is easier to digest. Thanks, Philip
Hi all. I have a quick questions. Do you all limit the fruit you eat? It seems many people who are eating Paleo limit how much fruit they eat. I eat as much fruit as I want. I would love your feedback on this. Thanks all.

Fruit has too much sugar so you'll want to keep your fruit consumption down to a minimum: try to limit it to 1-2 servings. If you eat more than that in the beginning of your paleo journey, don't stress. Just try to taper it off and experiment with... (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)

I lost 40 lbs eating chocolate regularly. Sure didn't stop me! Context is also key, though. Eating dark chocolate kept me from eating larger portions of worse things. YMMV.
I'm on a strict a Paleo diet except for vegetables (I only digest avocados) and fruits (I only tolerate berries). Anything else (veggies) I try to eat gives me bad bloating, IBS and unbearable insomnia. In the last weeks I used juicing 2 cups a... (more)

My father and I, are interested in eating just raw fruit and greens for a week, in the summer here when stone fruit, berries, bananas, figs are in season. Just for kicks/for the sake of it. Usually we eat meat, veg, fruit, cooconut and olive oil,... (more)
So I was checking out the paleo food list and I noticed that it recommends all the fruits, but condemns starchy tubers. Now I know sweet potatoes have a lower fructose count per 100 grams than ANY fruit, so what's the deal? Fructose is the most... (more)
I've read "Solution" and "Blueprint" and fan of paleo, but this lady claims that she lost 40lb on raw vegetarian diet. How it's possible? Is it high risk for insuline resistance and diabetes? UPDATE: carbs become glucose and get stored into... (more)

After watching Sugar: The Bitter Truth multiple times, I keep wondering about why fruit would contain fructose if it can only be bad for us. Of course, like Dr. Lustig said so well, fructose in fruit is minimal compared to today and often comes... (more)
Following on from the broth question, what are some good paleo sources of magnesium and potassium? Broth doesn't have that much apparently. Seeds have loads but are too high in linoleic acid, ditto nuts (or 200g macadamia nuts, which would be... (more)
