For those of you who have already resolved most or all of your pre-paleo issues, whether it be autoimmunity, weightloss, digestive issues, or all of the above. Once you got to your happy point what did/does your version of the paleo lifestyle... (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)

I'm 21, 5'11, 205 lbs and male. I'm lucky if I get 1800-2000 calories a day. And this has wreaked havoc on my body. I've had hypothyroid and testosterone issues since June, and I've posted about it before (Trying to find the link). I'm having... (more)
I think the maintenance calorie discussion as well as looking for optimal guidelines can be frustrating, since everybody has a different body type, metabolism etc. There probably isn't a clear cut "bodyweight multiple" that would work for... (more)
