Has anyone had any experience with the so-called 'simulated dawn' alarm clocks such as the Bio-Brite, Wake-Up Light or Soleil? It is possible that I may start using one in the winter when I cannot leave the shutters on our windows open because of... (more)
I find that when I'm studying I find being paleo harder because uni isn't very paleo friendly and yeah less time to prepare food doesn't help either. Whats your experience?
I live at home not in a dorm, but yes, it['ss hard to keep paleo in college. I spend so much time studying and I need to constantly keep some chocolate or nuts at my side for munching so my attention span will last longer than that of a flea
I live with my boyfriend of 2.5 years. He's very respectful of my paleo diet choices, especially since it helps me with blood sugar issues which in turn makes me nicer to him :)He eats a lot of rice, though. He usually has granola bars and popcorn... (more)
Lift heavy 3-4x/week (mostly compound lifts), sprint 2-3x/week (100 yd sprints at the track), walk 2+ miles daily (during my lunch at work) then some random short runs and bodyweight stuff when I feel like it.
I've been bouncing back and forth between vegan/vegetarian blogs (nutritionfacts.org, McDougall diet), bodybuilding blogs (carb backloading), this site (PaleoHacks), Mark's Daily Apple... This community seems to be the most well-rounded...... (more)
I like to keep my ears to the ground on new and cool crowd funding campaigns. I saw this pop on Indiegogo about an idea for Paleo supplements. I thought it was pretty cool. Check it out. ... (more)

I want to know what keeps you pushing forward with your lifestyle. Is it that you used to be overweight and never want to go back? You used to be sad and this makes you happy? Why do you keep on rubbing against the grain (no pun intended) with... (more)
There's a lot of great info on here & a lot of varying opinions, something i've been thinking about lately is, how do you guys interpret the whole Paleo lifestyle? (i don't like to call it a diet) how do you identify yourself in regards to... (more)
Wondering what everyone's Top 10 Must-Haves are, and what the commonalities are between everyones. Mine: 1. Robb Wolf podcasts 2. Mark's DailyApple Forum 3. Paleohacks 4. Vibram Fivefinegrs 5. A giant cookingpot for when I cook whole birds 6.... (more)
EDIT: Just found an article that seems to substantiate my hunch, below: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2002507/ My original posting: There is probably no correlation because such a wide range of factors--such as genes and... (more)
Recently, I started eating Paleo, partially because I've had a bad relationship with food for awhile, and it's helping me to think of eating as something I do to take care of myself, rather than something I do to make me feel better. It's also... (more)
I have encountered the same problems, with my mom thinking I was becoming deficient in calcium because I don't drink milk, and other stuff like that. I found it best to just be honest that it makes you happy, and that it works for you. If you can... (more)
Hi primates I've been paleo for almost two months now, and I enjoy this way of living. I can feel a significant difference in energi and happiness. But I have weight issues on the other side of the scale than usually: Im 186 cm i think, maybe... (more)
I am still trying to begin to adjust to the paleo lifestyle but I am not sure if I will see the results that I am 'promised'. It seems a bit too good to be true that I can eat so much fat and not gain weight... In saying that, my question is, has... (more)
Anybody here a doctor/looking to get into med school? Questions I have: How did going paleo/primal change your practice? Did you discuss with colleagues about this? Do you advise your patients to change to the same lifestyle? If you've told... (more)
Do you (me too) focus on the details and miss the big picture? What is the big picture for you? Is "the perfect the enemy of the good" for you?
I will start with mine. I don't use plastics. You will always see me drinking out of a mason jar (and people ask me if that's moonshine, pond water or science experiment). I also don't use Teflon pans. I use stainless steel pans. I also don't use... (more)
Hello everyone, My doctor has warned me that I will develop hypothyroidism in the future based on a history of irregular blood tests (though i couldn't tell you any more detail), and have to have my levels tested every 6 months. Should I feel... (more)
I saw a post by a parent (unrelated to this site) who is eating paleo. She used cauliflower to sub for another ingredient in a meat pie. She was excited that her children liked the pie and said that they said it was the best they've had...and her... (more)
I posted this query on someone else's question and realized it needed it's own question. Any of you been to a scooter rally? It's a really fun and a great excuse to pack up and go some distance to meet up with other people who are into the... (more)
As part of a paleo lifestyle, I want to explore leather and fur clothing and footware, but I want to make sure they're sourced from humane, and preferably local, sources. I was thinking for my first project I would get leather and make my own toe... (more)
You could try your local vintage store. You aren't supporting inhumane farms if the animal was killed in the 50s and it's a great testament to just how long this stuff lasts. Another option is to get to know a hunter (many don't know what to do... (more)
Do you agree with paleo-censorship?
