Does anybody here vastly differ their macronutrient ratios roughly in conjunction with seasonal availability - that is, gorge on fruit as a staple during the summer, and then switch over to savory, fatty, protein-filled meals in the winter? Do... (more)
I am trying to adapt to a Paleo diet--and having trouble. I know it should be simple but I have a lot of "food issues" and nothing with food is simple for me. I don't WANT to count anything (calories, nutrients, etc.) but I think to get started I... (more)
Hey guys, I've tried to look up some other threads and I still couldn't find an answer to my question. When you're eating towards your protein intake for lean body mass do you count the protein from fat and vegetables? For example, my lean body... (more)
Hello, I am no starnger to exercise and nutrition, but my question is this. Do I need to eat more? I know that the Paleo Protocol states that you need only to eat when you are hungry, but this is only getting me maybe 1,000 calories a day at... (more)
Only because you used that word so many times, paleo isn't some capital-P Protocol. In fact, it's not exclusive of lean gains either - you'll find many people here that do both. LG is more about macronutrients, workouts, and eating windows; paleo... (more)
Hypothetically speaking, which of the three macronutrients fats/proteins/carbs could singularly sustain you for the rest of your life if at all? And why?
None of them. They're all needed.
Art De Vany talks a lot about power laws. I think this is a really important concept, at least for the field that I'm more or less qualified for (physical therapy and musculoskeletal health and exercise). My question is about power law variation... (more)

Hey guys, I'm a 20 yr old female that recently started eating paleo (again). Right now I'm consuming approx. 1,200 calories per day; although, I'll admit, sometimes I consume closer to 1,000. I realize this is probably too little, but I'm... (more)
I shoot for 50/35/15 (F/P/C) split with my daily macros, I consume 2700-2800 cals a day, 6'0 200 pounds 14% bf, moderately active I strength train 30-4 times a week. question is should I be more focused on how many grams of each or just the... (more)
For those of you who are eating a moderate amount of carbs, say 100g+ daily, where are you getting them from? Do you stick to 100 percent paleo sources like tubers and squash? Or do you eat some non-gluten grains like rice or corn? What about... (more)
I once asked this question to my professor in a nutrition class in college, and she gave me a surprised 'Gee, I never thought about that' look: Why is "fat," the macronutrient, and "fat," the physical stuff on our bodies (adipose, viceral, etc.)... (more)
I like this. From now on I think I'll start referring to body fat as adipose tissue. Y'know, because wearing toe shoes and telling people saturated fat is healthy doesn't make me seem weird enough.
I can already tell that I'm going to get several perspectives on this, but I want to take them all into account. Specifically, I can't consume carbs (including any fruit, sweet potatoes, potatoes, etc) because I was recently diagnosed with... (more)
SOme people seem to do well on very low carb but some seem to require higher carb intake in order to feel better. For those of you who have experimented, what daily carb levels do you seem to do best at? What are your upper and lower thresholds... (more)
I've been following a 40p/30f/30c ratio on 1,250 calories a day while eating paleo for fat loss. I've been on point for 5 days now. Today i had breakfast and my boyfriend bought these quest bars. They were sooo good! and i ended up having two of... (more)
