Looking for some serious hacking...After 20 years of various diets/new eating plans (you name them, I've tried them) and zero success in weight loss or weight management plus various failed attempts of severe exercise programs (Body for Life,... (more)
It occurred to me tonight that the reason high carb diets tend work may be because it allows the body to synthesize the right fats. Pure and simple... If you have good gut flora and a healthy metabolism and good insulin response, your body/flora... (more)
So I eat a low carb paleo ketogenic diet (Bulletproof Diet without tons of coffee though) for roughly a year now. I feel great on the diet but always seem to have looser stools. I dont really have much bloating, acne, or gas, and I dont have very... (more)
I've been eating Paleo for the past 2 months. Recently I've altered to a low-carb diet (50g) or less. On days that I don't work out, I feel great, am rarely hungry and mental clarity is superb. Whenver I workout, whether it be morning, afternoon... (more)
I LOVE onions! I could eat them until they come out of my ears! I know they are super healthy for you and have quite a bit of anti-oxidants in them. I eat probably 1 small to medium onion a day. While I'm on paleo, I'm trying to lose weight and... (more)
I recently went low-carb, but find that I'm missing a lot of the old foods I used to eat.. but I like the way LC makes me feel and that is enough to keep me motivated. Would it be more benificial to stay LC all the time and deal with the cravings... (more)
Has anyone here lost more than 50lbs while averaging 200+gm of carbohydrate a day? For all I am glad that Paleo has embraced starch for those who need it I'm wondering if that hasn't skewed people's results.
CONFUSED NEWBIE!!! I'm getting so many different answers. As far as I know.. I'm 20 years old female, weighing 165, height 5'6"-7" and my ideal weight is 130 pounds. I'm trying to do HIGH fat, MOD protein, LOW carb. I was told to eat 1 gram of... (more)
I've been Paleo for quite some months now. When I was over in Haiti, I didn't eat Paleo for a week. I got back, had the runs, and now I'm back eating Paleo. It's been about a month since I was in Haiti, and I've had brain fog for the last 2... (more)
I just finished a 30 day challenge on Paleo and made it through unscathed. I feel good, skin looks good, and I dropped a few pounds. Even though my husband and I told ourselves we could "cheat" when we finished the 30 days, I really don't want... (more)
For the last couple of years, I've had trouble with food - overeating, constantly thinking about (carby) food, eating "just because it's there", etc. I think it's all been due to some weird, unfounded fear of ending up in a situation where I'm... (more)
Hi. I am a 33 year old female and I weigh 145 pounds. I would like to lose 15 pounds as it is weight i have gained in the last year since moving and starting a new job. I have tried calorie restricting but i can never manage to stick to it and... (more)
I developed GERD at the ripe old age of 18. I began experiencing chronic sore throats, which my MD at the time suggested was acid reflux, because I was in continual pain and had no signs of respiratory infection. I thought she was wrong, simply... (more)
I'm doing a low carb, high fat version of Paleo, and I'm searching for a good bagel or english muffin like recipe that I can make in the morning and spread coconut oil on. So far, I use this one: 2Tb coconut flour, 3Tb ground flaxseed... (more)
This is my favorite muffin recipe. I use stevia because I have a sweet tooth. When it's straight out of the oven, it's very fresh, delicious and moist-but-not-doughy. http://cowenparkkitchen.com/masa-harina-cornbread/
So I went to the organic store and saw this little box contaning about 100 tiny licorice pellets. It's sugar-free, gluten-free and made with only one ingredient : 100% licorice extract. So it's not exactly a candy : they taste really strong and... (more)
So I was thinking. This morning my low carb breakfast was probably one of the best things I have ever experienced. 60 grams of blueberries with 30ml of double cream. Fresh organic coffee with 30ml double cream. 100 grams of store... (more)
I have been eating paleo diet for about sixth months and it has worked wonders for me! However i recently read an article about watching how many carbs you eat, and that the ultimate way to lean out and build muscle is to cut carbs, to maybe one... (more)
FWIW, I think you may be eating too few calories. Perhaps you need to replace the carbs with fat.
is it normal for my blood glucose to rise to 150 after a meal only of protein, fat and veggies? I???m not eating VLC, I eat veggies, one/two servings of fruit and one sweet potato. Should I be concerned? Why does this happen? I though this... (more)
I'm very sensitive to carbs so I started eating low carb, high fat, and moderate-high protein about a year ago and day by day I've been looking worse & worse, it's literally like I've sped up the aging process. As my carb issues feel... (more)
I really like mayonnaise and eat it with a lot of things, almond butter is amazing, bulletproof coffee will get fat in really easily, and I do a lot of coconut milk "milkshakes" with stevia and cocoa powder.
I was told that low carb and high fat diet will result in insulin resistance. I've been following a low carb diet for a while and have been feeling well and losing weight. I would usually throw in a day of eating lots of carbs for leptin,... (more)
If you really want to understand what's going on inside your body when you do this read a book called GRAIN BRAIN by Dr. David Perlmutter, MD. Your 1day carb binge is horrible for your entire body!
I'm trying to embrace this lifestyle due the slew of physiological benefits I believe it can provide. I really do feel so much healthier since I've gone strict paleo. I gave been loading up on fatty meats and veggies. I recently cut out nuts and... (more)
Gaining weight is a function of energy balance (calories consumed over caloires expended), not which particular diet you follow (atkins, paleo, south beach, grapefruit, cabbage soup, whatever).
Hey everyone.. So I've been on Paleo for about a month now. Doing really well, have treated myself once in a while but overall eating supper healthy. Since I've been on Paleo, all I drink is water (I try to drink 2-4 L in a day, all depends... (more)
How long should I keep the low carb up, and is it low-carb or am I killing myself? I am 20/Female. I heard that low-carb isn't too good for women (in the long run? and it seems that women are more affected by the low carb flu than guys from... (more)
I went paleo last year when I was 236 lbs at 5'9'' as a female, size 14 pants and xxl shirts. I lost 63 lbs and went down to 173, a loose size 8 pant and medium shirts with about 25 lbs left to go as a goal. I thought why not do a fat fast... (more)
