Preferably some tips besides obvious once like breastfeeding them and not letting them sit by the computer or television all day. Should they get a shot of vitamin-K at birth? Should day have a comforter/pacifier? A baby bouncer? Vaccination?... (more)
Two kinds of stretches I really want to be able to do are: Be able to do (almost) full splits. Both on side and front. -> Right now, I am more than a foot off the ground! Be able to touch my toes comfortably without bending my knees. -> Right... (more)
I've been waiting since last AUGUST for this! http://ketopia.com/nutrient-density-sticking-to-the-essentials-mathieu-lalonde-ahs12/ What about the nutrient density index surprised you? What effect (if any) will the index have on your diet? For... (more)
For me it's: To include gelatin in my diet for perfect 4's on the Bristol Stool Chart. Eat more cholesterol when resistance training/HIIT because there is a direct linear correlation between cholesterol intake and strength gains, muscle... (more)

I tolerate dairy pretty well and consider myself lacto-paleo. One of my favorite on-the-go meal hacks is to simply eat a ball of mozzarella cheese from a grocery store. This provides about 40g of fat and 40g of protein, plus a ton of vitamins... (more)
..No thank you! I felt I needed to express my extreme gratitude for Paleo Hacks and its hackers. PH has so quickly become a priceless tool for me and my journey to optimal health and living. I have been quietly (addicted to) reading (more like... (more)

1) You spend a plurality, if not a majority of your surfing time on this site. This is significant statement given the amount of time you spend on other sites. You realize that possibly the only positive to the deep slumber of Kurt Harris is that... (more)
I want to become significantly more flexible than I am now. Sitting in front of a laptop 20 out 24 hours, definitely not helping. :( My main, hyper-tight areas are psoas, hip flexors, and posterior chain. I suspect I need to re-do the way I... (more)
Everything you've listed is great, but I will give you a different perspective than the ones so far. I have a fair bit of experience with this personally The "what" is secondary to the "how often". This is probably not the answer you want.... (more)
If you do use a microwave (setting aside for the moment the issue of "whether" you should microwave at all, which is addressed in part here), are there practical benefits to microwaving at lower power settings? Or is full power at a short time... (more)
I did, up until this evening. Here's a 1-minute hack for awesome ice-cream: Dump a handful or two of frozen mixed berries in the food processor. Cover with cream, approximately the same amount by volume as berries. Whiz briefly until... (more)
The question was inspired by this study link text where cocoa flavanols were shown to increase protection from sun damage. Are there any other foods that would help do this? I am very pale and I'd like to avoid using sunscreen as much as possible... (more)
My wife suffers from pretty severe motion sickness. I'm wondering if any of you have dealt with this problem, whether a paleo diet helped with this problem or whether a specific dietary change or other change helped.
What was the moment when you realized what your paleo 'duh' or pareto-effect was? I.e. what was simple thing you stumbled on within paleo that made a huge, disproportionate difference in your wellbeing? For me it was sleep. I'd read about how... (more)
Hello everyone! I have been on Paleo for about a month and a half now and have been very very strict. I feel amazing and will never go back to how I ate before. Over the last two weeks my weight loss seems to have stalled. Within the first 3... (more)
The best thing you can do, in my opinion, is wait. 1.5 months is not that long and given you lost 15 pounds in 3 weeks, this means you have stalled for about 3 weeks now. I would say 15 pounds gone after 1.5 months is a very good result. Paleo is... (more)
The amazon hack got me thinking. I love PaleoHacks and want to support it. Judging by some of the ads being shown I doubt that PH is making that much money off them. How about creating a Amazon Product page on PH where we buy the products through... (more)
This is a great idea. Very easy to do and I would support it. Basically you would access the site through Paleohacks and a small portion of the purchase price would go to the site. Wonderful idea.
Do you keep a journal to record things like meals, workouts, etc.? I find it helps incredibly with remembering things and tracking progress. I have a small ruled notebook with me most of the time and I record anything that I want in it. A recent... (more)

Just got my 23andme data back -- would love to know what is the best way to get the most actionable data out of it. What should I look at that will let me make a change in my diet, lifestyle, fitness today? Anything? (more)
I like to read PaleoHacks questions as they are published - when they come to my Google Reader stream in my PC or my smartphone. If you have an RSS reader ("blog reader") or reader app that you like, simply plug http://paleohacks.com/feeds into... (more)
It amazes me how both obsessive and ignorant people can be. Educate yourself, please! Go out and read Robb Wolf's book, look for Loren Cordain, Gary Taubes, Mark Sisson online.. read WHY you are doing this.. not WHAT you should do. So many... (more)
For the life of me I can't figure out why my husband hasnt lost a ton of weight. Here are his stats: 5'9" 265lbs Paleo compliance level in the last year: 75% Last doc visit in the spring showed higher than norm cholesterol and blood sugar but... (more)
I think the only way to know for sure would be to convince him to do at minimum a month of faithful paleo - without sugar, flour, fruit, and even nuts and dairy (perhaps except for ghee and butter). Of course you mentioned that he is already... (more)
