Hi! I've been reading here for a couple of weeks now. I've been doing paleo for about a year now, and it's been great. I've lost about 100 lbs, and packed on 20-30 in muscle. For my exercise regimen, I walk 5 or more miles a day (I have two... (more)

Does it matter how you brew your coffee?? I recently broke my French press and want to buy a Chemex. I don't drink tons of coffee and try to drink black teas or any teas also but coffee is just Mmmm-mmm good!!
