I recently had a heart monitor (Holtor Monitor) for 48 hours issued by my GP after a recent dizzy spell that resulted in fainting. My test results came back as technically "normal", but my GP was a little alarmed that my heart rate varied... (more)
How would I buy a blood glucose meter? I'm 18 years old and don't have diabetes. I just want to monitor my glucose levels(thinking about entering ketosis again). Where would I go get one and do I need a prescription? My dad is a diabetic so he got... (more)
So I think Paleo has ruined me. I mean, I was annoying before (I've always been a cynical, skeptical SOB), but my friends and family may disown me at this point. And it's not just because of Paleo topics. I don't talk about that much anymore... (more)
I have a question that has been on my mind for a while now, and I am wondering what some other people think of this. So, having been strict Paleo for over a year now, that is my choice, I know that. my Significant other, is a wonderfully... (more)
On a rare occasion (like the Super Bowl...or a very large party at our house), I'll break out some organic blue corn chips. Since I'm VLC, they're not really an option for me, but I think it gives my husband a dose of "OK, we're not complete... (more)

I just started Paleo and tonight I am feeling really funky... stomach is achy headache and sort of hot almost like I'm getting sick but not... lol Is this normal?? I was a junk foodaholic before finally deciding to change my life then saving up... (more)
Eat some carbs and don't go cold-turkey straight into paleo, ease in. Goes against nearly every guru/blog/book out there, but changing one's diet should not be done quickly, unless you enjoy digestive upset and general malaise.
The title explains it all, I guess. I know that this question will probably not get an affirmative answer, because of the nature of this great website: it is for people looking for answers, and for people giving answers. Why do I ask? Before the... (more)
Day by day, I am becoming a person who shuns restaurants and when dining out is unavoidable I am considering becoming a "restaurant vegan". I am becoming more edified in my belief that human consumption of CAFO/IRAF animals is ethically wrong and... (more)
If you order lamb there is a 75% chance it's imported and thus not CAFO since the major exporter of lamb is New Zealand, which pastures its lamb. Either way, for future reference based on my agricultural experience, here are the most wretched... (more)
Hey Everyone, I am constantly amazed by the number of posts where people go through laundry lists of symptoms/ailments and ask if Paleo diet would help, or who are already following a Paleo diet but want to tweak things to help improve/reverse... (more)
