Hi, I was prescribed Clindamycin for an infection (300 mg 3x a day). I stopped after the 12th pill because the dosage seemed high for my body (I'm 4'11, 100lbs) and I had heard about people experiencing drastic side effects with even a 150mg... (more)
I've decided to start living clean, and the paleo way seems to be be the best bet. I love exercising, and i do so about 8-10 times a week ranging from hiit cardio to weightlifting. Oh yes i have horrible eating habits. My digestive system is... (more)
Going Paleo did wonders for my digestion and energy. ??Just drop all grains and sugars, and have a high protein breakfast, every day for 30 days and I think you'll notice major results. I think the whole "detox" thing is a little silly, this idea... (more)
I just started eating paleo almost two weeks ago and I am trying out recipes. Sometimes you need several tablespoons of coconut oil. How much is that? Do I need to warm it to make it liquid first? Or is it okay to just spoon it out of the... (more)
Hi everyone, I'm new here, but I'm planning to start the Paleo diet the beginning of February, and I have a few concerns. I have digestive problems that have gotten dramatically worse over the past few months, and the doc is no good( says it's... (more)
My wife and I will be going on vacation next month and wanted to look slimmer. We researched, and decided we'd like to try Paleo for 30 days. We're about 9 days in and still in the "detox" phase. I seem to be taking longer to clean my body out... (more)
Hello all! Today is day 1 for me on paleo, and I just found this site and I was wondering if anyone had any tips on how to utilize paleo for weight loss. I just went to Trader Joe's and picked up some grilled chicken, kale, and spinach. Does... (more)
I am very new to the Paleo diet (only about two weeks) and wanted to know if coconut milk really does help you lose fat?!? I thought it was high in cholesterol and increases your LDL level! I am allergic to almonds so almond milk is out. Could... (more)
Cholesterol is only found in animals, not plants, so there is none in coconut. And dietary cholesterol does not raise cholesterol in the blood. Dietary cholesterol is actually very good to consume, especially for hormone function.
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)
I have been paleo for two weeks now, though gluten and dairy free for over a year. I am eating low enough carbs for the past week (below 50g) to be in ketosis, and the body fat is dropping. All good. I have noticed, though, that when I lie in... (more)
It's not just ketosis, but also sugar & salt withdrawal combined with fluid re-regulation. Make sure you are drinking enough water and getting adequate minerals in your diet.
So. I've heard a lot about crossfit on here and other places, and I'm seriously considering signing up for a class. Frankly, I'm nervous: I'm really out of shape and have never done the "gym" thing (though I know crossfit is pretty different from... (more)
I'm 3 days into paleo and have been extremely tired with absolutely no energy! I've only been walking because I have no energy to do anything more like run, etc. Also, it has been very difficult for me to focus at work and be alert. It's like I'm... (more)
It's only Day 3, hang in there! I had terrible withdrawal symptoms after excluding gluten and refined sugars that lasted over 10 days and included: extreme lethargy, muscle aches, headache (5 days straight), brain fog.When I "came out of it", it... (more)
I tried paleo a while ago to little avail, but I'm jumping back inI feel great...energy is up and all, but I'm having some issues. Firstly, I recently started lifting more and cutting back on cardio. I LOVE it and feel so strong, but my fat loss... (more)
What really helps me is eating a larger protein packed breakfast. It gives me a great start for the day. I also eat every couple hours. This really helps me keep cravings down. Best wishes.
Long time stalker, first time posting. I can't find information that pertains to my saliva cortisol test results, and am going a bit crazy over it. I sought out an integrative MD after years of severe fatigue and difficulty losing weight post... (more)
i'm a 30 year old woman with multiple autoimmune diagnoses (pros, fibromyalgia) recently also diagnosed by an allergist with allergies to eggs (moderate on the whites, borderline on the yolks), casein, gluten (knew about this one since 2011 and... (more)
I have a very finicky stomach. There are a few foods I know I can't eat at all and other foods I know I can only eat small amounts of. But eggs, oh those lovely eggs get me every time. Somedays one egg gives me such stomach pain that I want to... (more)
No one seems to know why it is i am getting a running nose for the last 3 days days of 100% compliance with paleo. (previous question) I had been doing 85% compliance for 5 weeks but had a short fall by drinking a bit of alcohol over a 2 week... (more)
Hi everyone, I asked a question back in '12 and folks around here were VERY helpful, so apologies as I bother you all once more. Brief background: I am attempting to work on a "strict" Paleo lifestyle and wasn't sure if the Turkey Bacon I... (more)
I'm Carrie, Paleokoshka, I've been doing some heavy net searching on this after being told to do a Paleo diet by a medical professional.I need to find a very cheap way to do this as I survive on foodstamps and stuff I get from my church (about... (more)
Hi all! New here to paleo hacks, so give me a break if something like this question has already been on here.. BUT I hve been researching the paleo diet for about a year and have finally taken the plugs after a gradual introduction to the... (more)
Oh, Hey! I'm a college student too and am pretty paleo except some rice...which doesn't even do me any justice when I eat it...I just eat it cause i'm poor and it's brown rice and not as bad as other things. I really am not even eating it much... (more)
Im still very new at paleo and i read something that really confused me, I thought as long as i eat from the list of paleo foods I'd be fine and would lose weight but now I'm reading that I still have to watch my carb intake. How much carbs are... (more)
My Dr. (a naturalist/endocrinologist) ran my labs, discovered I do not make the chemicals needed for my thyroid to function due to lack of iodine. Placed me on iodine supplements, then said my cholesterol is high, and my cortisol levels are too... (more)
So, I got this E-mail saying that the single best way for me to use Paleo Hacks was to introduce myself to the community. Therefore, here I go. I found Paleohacks by Googling the Paleo Diet. I'm more of a primal kind of guy, but have found... (more)
I switched to paleo a week ago and I feel amazing. I have about 15 pounds to lose, but my primary reason for switching was to find a lifestyle rather than a diet. I keep reading about how difficult paleo is and the detox process. I haven't... (more)
You are doing the right thing. People that are more metabolically broken are more likely to suffer before getting used to paleo. Just eat lots of real, whole foods and get some quality exercise and you will be fine.
Hi, Im a bit of a newbie to the Paleo diet, but have always hit the low carb thing whenever im trying to shed weight. Im 37yr old woman, 5ft 6 and I weigh around 60kg. I have no idea how to calorie count but im doing the whole sugar, gluten and... (more)
I cannot believe one can eat too much pumpkin. There are paleo populations who eat 60% calories in sweet potatoes, nutritionally very similar to pumpkin, and they have no diseases of civilization. I think you are doing very well.
