Check out Sam Feltham's 21 Day 5,000 Calorie Challenge... as he eats a Paleo diet! I don't know if he ever says "Paleo" but that's the kind of foods he's eating on this experiment. The high calorie numbers say he should gain weight, but given... (more)
Hey, I am a 5'5", 18 yr old girl around 135 lbs or so (approx no scale) who's been on the Paleo Diet since Lent. My q is I was wondering if I am not eating dairy, grains, legumes, refined sugar products, processed food, and NOW (since I've heard... (more)
So, I've been Paleo 100% (except for the very occasional slip-up: sugar consumption every few weeks, and perhaps unintentionally in restaurants) for a little over two months. When I started, I felt better immediately- this was more important to me... (more)
Hello everyone! To get right to the question here. About two years ago I weighed 285 lbs. Now I am at 180. How I lost the weight was by the traditional 6 meals a day. Although it was pretty clean, lower carb, daily intake of oatmeal etc. My... (more)
Hi everyone, I am sorry to ask a question that is so similar to a few others that have already been answered. I just feel that my individual symptoms can't be accuretly answered by reading another persons thread. I am a 24 year old man. I work 5... (more)
I am on my third week of straight paleo and I feel terrible! I am constantly nauseas and feel like I might throw up, I have felt this for a week now and am unsure of what is causing it. I am eating low carb (<50g), but still occasionally eat... (more)
This is a great website. Thanks for all the help so far. So I cut out the chocolate, processed foods, fruit, had 21 days of withdrawal (day 21 was worst), candida die off etc etc. The cravings stopped. Brilliant. None of the daily trips to the... (more)
I'm not an expert, but perhaps you're eating a bit too much protein? I'd make sure most of your plate is filled with veggies and just one serving (palm size) of protein.
I am a large man trying to drop weight. I am on a plan that requires me to have 300grams of protein 240 grams of carbs and 115g of fat. I am trying to use the paleo approach but I find it hard to get in those amount of carbs in a day without... (more)
Stats: 5'2" female, 187 lbs. Age low 40s. Have lost 175 lbs already on VLC (30-50g but I stopped that), want to lose 30-40 lbs more. I've been in a plateau for over a year (within 10 pounds) and have tried all kinds of things to get past it... (more)
Ive been on the paleo/anabolic diet since the 1995. It was named the anabolic bodybuilders diet back then and I was a young and foolish natural fitness person who jumped in head first with my eyes closed but I will say if done right you can have... (more)
I have been on the Paleo diet for six weeks now. So far the results are fairly positive...I've lost 11 pounds to date..I feel wonderful...I'm actually sleeping through the night, have no more acid reflux, my stomach doesn't hurt when I eat a meal... (more)
The average weight loss is a useless number in this situation since everyone is different. You should expect your weight to eventually get to your optimal weight, and stay there provided you stay paleo. The number isn't really important.
Hello. I am 30 and 185lbs 5'4. I started Paleo 2 months ago and I was at 190 when I started. Also my BMI/Fat% and measurements are still pretty much the same. I have always ate pretty healthy and mild exercise but I really decided to give it my... (more)

Wild salmon, mackerel and sardines are all on my menu. Not to mention an array of shellfish. I love lobster, scallops, crab, prawns (shrimp) etc I live on a small island, so we get better access than a lot of places to seafood.
I have been dealing with what I thought were hormonal problems - acne, hairloss, fatigue, PMS and weird periods. When it did not stop I got my thyroid checked and I came back Hypo with an elevated TSH (other levels weren't measured yet). I had... (more)
So my coach has put his foot down and recommended I get into BCAAs.. I am a female 5'9' 25 years weigh between 63-65kg. I eat paleo (have been for the last 6 months) roughly 9000 calories per week with roughly 45-50%fat, 25-30% protein, 20-25%... (more)
Hi guys. I know there are multiple questions and answers on here about this, but I want to ask my question specifically. It is similar, but here goes. I have been eating paleo or very close to it for 6-8 months now. I have lost 35 pounds since Jan... (more)
Hello tribe, I'm 38 y.o. male, 6' tall, been following a Primal regime since June 2011, I've lost 50 pounds and feel great. My actual weight is 215 pounds, which is 40 pounds overweight according to the charts. My question is, is it possible... (more)
I've been doing a pretty good job of sticking to the "rules" and not cheating, but I'm not losing any weight. I know the point is to feel better and I do, but I had gained 10 lbs before I started Paleo and I'd like my clothes to fit again! I'm... (more)
Acetyl L-Carnitine works wonders for cognition. I have fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue syndrome/ME and 4g with water in the morning wakes up my life! Amazing. From having a foggy brain, lethargic, tired all the time to bursting at the seams :)
I don't understand how this works--so we switch our bodies into a fat burning mode, but we eat SO much fat, then wouldn't our bodies just use the fat we're putting in instead of burning reserves? I'm eating about 80-100 grams of fat a day,... (more)
I started paleo a few weeks ago and felt good the first two days but now i have no energy and feel tired all the time. I also have no energy for my workouts. Am I doing something wrong? I want to try and lose some fat so that I can get lean but... (more)
"Paleo" doesn't have to mean "no carbs". Try having a sweet potato or a bit of white rice shortly before your workouts. If you're lifting, those carbs will be put to good use and not be stored as fat. I'm in a similar situation to yours. I lift 3... (more)
Hey guys, I lost about 80 lbs two years ago and ever since then its been a terrible struggle to lose the last 10-15lbs. I'm a young male (5'7" and 160lbs). I lift weights 3x/week and walk a decent amount. I used to do a lot of cardio and... (more)
It has not been possible for me and that is not due to a lack of discipline or effort no matter what anyone else may choose to believe. I have tried pretty much everything. Well, I have tried everything I am willing to try which generally means... (more)
I eat paleo & do CrossFit 4 times a week. I have been losing weight slowly (compared to others) but steady. Most importantly, I have lost 6% of my body fat so that is encouraging. I still have about 4 more kg to get to my first weight goal... (more)
I'm new to Paleo and have been following it 80% for the last two months (planning to go 100% soon). My goals are kind of complicated though. I had an eating disorder for 11 years, and earlier this year I finally reached a place where I could eat... (more)
