I cut out gluten 10 months ago and went full Paleo (well, Primal, as I do eat goat and sheep dairy on occasion) 9 months ago. I haven't knowingly touched gluten since then, though I suspect I've had the odd exposure here and there (soy sauce at... (more)
I know there are lots of poop questions on here but none of them really help me out. I've brought this up before when I first started Paleo and had people telling me to up my carbs, up my fats, lower my fats, lower my protein, eat stems, etc.,... (more)
My latest post on my blog was about this. I struggled with loose stool a lot on strict paleo and it subsided when I would eat an apple sauce/banana/pumpkin/broth diet. Finally I got it to go away altogether by just well...not eating paleo. I still... (more)

So i decided to make some biscuits this afternoon to go with my paleo shepherds pie. After about 40 minutes..lets just say there was a mad dash to the bathroom! I have cheat meals occasionally and they usually are more on the sweet end of... (more)

My story is long - and I just happened to post it this week on my blog (linked in my profile). In short, I was vegan for 10 years, and did every type of vegan/vegetarian diet/cleanse and my health kept getting worse and worse. I lost my period for... (more)
I told my family that I am eating primally before coming home for Easter. I did not make any attempt to push this on anyone else but was surprised how resentful they acted about it. My mother made too big of a deal about it - loudly saying in... (more)
