I've been on thirds for since January. I know the havoc working nights (3:30p-3:30a) can cause a body and decided to compensate as much as possible by vastly improving my diet. In fact I probably wouldn't have gone Paleo if it wasn't for working... (more)
This past Saturday I wanted to have a glass of wine with my friend. I have been on paleo for 2 weeks and was feeling great. We'll that one glass of wine turned into a couple glasses and some beer as well :( I also binged on some pretzels and... (more)
Hi all, I am a breastfeeding mama to a 7 month old who nurses ever 1-2 hours, 24 hours a day (no suggestions on not nursing this frequently; she needs to for medical reasons). If I don't eat a snack right before bed, I am unable to sleep in the... (more)
Here some info you might find useful: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/night-eating-syndrome-causes-solutions/
from what I've heard kiefer saying (carb backloadin / carb nite solution) it seems that whilst we are more insulin sensitive in the morning, this includes fat cells as well as the muscle. If you time the carbs for night, and particularly large... (more)
I've been eating paleo-ish for about 18 months. At times I am very hardcore and others I tend to cheat. My goal is to stay on a strict paleo diet for at least 30 days, then reintroduce foods. However, nights are my downfall. I usually eat a... (more)
I've woken up with diarrhea two separate times...and I ate late both nights. But I also had canned salmon both nights. Would the salmon be causing my diarrhea? Or just eating late at night? How could eating late cause this if it his is the problem? (more)
Hello tribe, I'm struggling a little with my weight loss, i'm wondering if it would be a good idea to cut on the carbs at night. I usually eat plantains or sweet potatoes at dinner time. Love to all
I'd do the opposite. I find that a bit of starch with supper helps me sleep and avoiding it during the day keeps appetite low. I also really like IF...missing breakfast cuts my appetite a lot.
I have been following paleo off and on for the past two months or so. I recently started working until around 10 or 11 pm. I also count my calories just to keep everything in check, I shoot for around 1200 cals. Before I go to work I'll have a... (more)
I've been on paleo for little less than 3 months now - living almost 100% with an occasional "fall of the wagon" moment here and there. I workout 3-4 times a week - mostly crossfit mixed with some fitness boxing and weightlifting. I'm 5.8 tall,... (more)
Last night, I experienced 'infra-red' vision for the first time! I have a section of my home that is completely dark. Blacked out. And yet I could see everything. Blurry and vague, but I could see. It appeared as a very subtle red and orange... (more)
I don't generally have a segmented sleeping pattern. Instead, I fall fast asleep most nights and don't get up until my alarm goes off the next morning, about seven hours later. If I'm feeling really run down, I'll sleep between eight and ten hours... (more)
I usually have a smoothie (soy milk or coconut milk w protein powder and splenda) around 7 but seem to be thirsty later and against my better judgment I drink some more water or another smoothie. (Maybe the smoothie ignites my thirst somehow). Any... (more)
Hello all, firstly thank you all for contributing to the brilliant resource that is Paleo Hacks. While this is my first post, I am an avid lurker.. I've been living 80% Paleo for about 2 years now, but decided to make the full switch recently.... (more)
I just recently started eating paleo. I am a 5'4" 114 pound female. I notice I get this weird rash at night after eating dinner and my night snack. It's right under my chest on my upper abdomen. There are all these little red dots. I noticed the... (more)
So, I work 3 twelve hour night shifts a week. Normally they are all in a row. The night before they start I usually stay up til 1 or 2 in the morning or nap before the day of. I get off work at 7:30, try to be in bed by 8:30 am and get 8 full... (more)
So the studies show better body composition for night eating and carbs especially. Using CBL or Carb Nite, how much time between your last bite and shut eye qualifies as night eating? That is, what's the min and max window here?
I understand that alcohol isn't exactly paleo, but there are times when we are going to go drinking at a bar. I have been drinking tequila, soda, and lime so the drink itself isn't horribly un-paleo. What paleo foods do you find that work well... (more)
I don't know, but ever since I started eating paleo I don't feel the need to eat anything after dinner. Perhaps it's a sign that you are not eating enough earlier in the day if you are still hungry?
I have been wondering lately, because that's what everyone always told me every time that I wanted to eat an orange after sunset; that it's pointless and that it needs to be daytime for the body to absorb vitamin C. I don't know how they all got... (more)
I don't think it matters what time of day you eat the orange I think the body absorbs vitamin C regardless of the time of day
I am a late night eater. I enjoy eating something before I sleep, which I know is a bad practice. (Or at least it was when I was non paleo, I don't know if it's okay on the Paleo diet!) I used to have a bowl of cereal or ice cream or something... (more)
I have two different types of pre-bed snacks - pre CF and post CF. Pre: hardboiled egg, cottage cheese, coconut, a few mac nuts, and since it's been hot I've taken to thick slicing banana, throwing into the freezer for about 20-minutes, then top... (more)
I think my circadian's cycles are wrong , cause are months that I go to bed very late ( 5-6 am) and I wake up at 12:00/13 am . So my times are really wrong , and I read about the circadian's cycles , can you tell me if my wrong lifestyle can... (more)
Hi Edgar, Regular sleep-wake cycles are important for well-being. It's very common for people who do not sleep well or at regular intervals to experience all sorts of mood problems including depression. If you feel that your sleep-wake cycles... (more)
I heard you can't "catch up on sleep". Is that true? I know I should probably go to bed when it gets dark or at latest 10:00-10:30, but often times I find myself getting many things done past that hour, because it is quiet and peaceful, and I'm... (more)
What is the general consensus on working out in the PM? I live in Finland and it gets dark here around 3, completely dark by 4pm. I find that for whatever reason my biggest motivation to workout comes between the hours of 7pm and 1am. I've... (more)
Do what works for you.
