I went on paleo based on my ObGyn (yup!) recommendation to see if it improved some health challenges. I started two weeks ago by cutting out wheat, dairy,legumes and cored fruit.... I feel better but to my frustration I have gained 2 1/2 lbs vs.... (more)
I have seen this question asked before but and it seemed like it got a lot of answers but I'm not sure I ever saw an answers that the satisfied or helped the people asking the question. I recently got serious about getting rid of my sugar... (more)
I don't think it's a fat adaption thing if you've been eating paleo for a couple years. It may relate to bile production. Have you had any blood work done? You may have elevated liver enzymes or bilirubin.
I started paleo a few weeks ago and felt good the first two days but now i have no energy and feel tired all the time. I also have no energy for my workouts. Am I doing something wrong? I want to try and lose some fat so that I can get lean but... (more)
"Paleo" doesn't have to mean "no carbs". Try having a sweet potato or a bit of white rice shortly before your workouts. If you're lifting, those carbs will be put to good use and not be stored as fat. I'm in a similar situation to yours. I lift 3... (more)
I'm naturally petite, and that paired with a healthy lifestyle and regular, rather gentle walking and hiking has meant I have never worried about my weight. I was a vegetarian for 12 years before starting to eat meat again. Once I started eating... (more)
I agree that your body very well could have been slightly malnourished as a vegetarian, and that you have reached a more preferred homeostasis. As far as exercising more, it probably won't hurt, but without further info, can't say for sure. What... (more)
Im determined to get into sleeping on the floor. I live in an apartment with hardwood floors. Im thinking about getting a japanese futon but before I do I want to try out sleeping on the floor with something cheaper thats also available in a... (more)
I just sleep on a yoga mat. I got it for $20 at Target. Then again, I live in Miami so the temperature of the floor is never an issue (in summer I sleep directly on the floor to take advantage of the cooler temp).
Does anyone have any ideas about what your visceral fat count should be on paleo? Mines a 3, but my friend who follows a low fat body building diet is a 1. Am just wondering if it's a concern having fat coating my organs or not, and should I keep... (more)
Hey Hackers, I constantly struggle with eating enough on Paleo. I'm a triathlete, and even though its off season, I havent finished a Crossfit WOD in I dont know how long and my coach asked me if I was eating enough. This was an issue in the... (more)
Why was I leaner on a SAD than the paleo diet. Mod protein mod carbs low fat compared to mod protein high'ish fats low carb? Training has not changed... Please hack my thoughts
You may be eating more calories, or low carb does not suit you - especially if you are doing a lot of training. Try paleo with more carbs and less fat and see how you feel / train etc
How can I get into ketosis quickly? I had very good success with Paleo/Primal back in the spring but due to life I quit eating as well as I could and would like to get back on the straight and narrow. I am the kind of person who does well with... (more)

I am a 52 yr/old mom and housewife. I started doing the Paleo meals about 5 months ago. Even got through the holidays OK! But I understood that by dropping the wheat, potatoes, rice, etc. I would drop weight as well due to their inflammation... (more)

Hi, I m 46 y.o. Female, overweight, almost obese. Trying to lose weight on Paleo diet but still eat about 2,500 cal/day, otherwise too hungry. Since I started Paleo, i have heartburn after each meal, and have lots of acne, a new one comes out... (more)
Anyone think that this action is exactly what we don't need to help obesity and overweight. So much stress in modern life, the last thing we need to have on our mind is a "calorie bank." thoughts... (more)
So I've been on-and-off the paleo/primal wagon multiple times. I want to get back on now -- not because of the new year (although the break from school is making it a good start point) but because my health is deteriorating too darn fast for... (more)
