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)

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.

I'm tired of people looking at me with disgust or confusion because I do not eat junk like the average American. Aren't you constipated without eating fiber? Aren't your arteries going to clog from using bacon fat to cook? What exactly do you... (more)

Hi there everyone! So I'm very new to paleo but I have a fair understanding of the idea. But I was wondering what was the craic with this bullet proof coffee craic. Is it paleo even with butter? I tried some this morning and I added some agave... (more)

Hi everyone, I am new to paleo and just wondered how long it takes to feel "normal" and have increased energy? I think I made a mistake in getting over-excited by the paleo treats (I began making paleo cakes, truffles etc. in the first week). I... (more)

Hi there, I've been experimenting a bit with Paleo diet and most of the time I find it is brilliant - I have so much more energy, better concentration and never get the sugar high and lows I used to. I can't do it 100% as I live at college at... (more)
Hey Guys, Sorry I'm new to all this. I've got a few questions. Since going paleo I've cut my carb intake and upped my fat with nuts, avocado, adding olive oil to my salad. I'd like to know: When pale dieters talk about low carb, do... (more)
I highly suggest buying a scale... I bought one pretty cheap at Target... it makes measuring a whole lot easier, and over time you'll get good at eyeballing how many grams are in a serving.
