I just started clean eating and have been on paleo for about a month now. Not many ill effects (thank goodness) and loving the way I feel! However, looking ahead to this fall, I am traveling to the Bahamas for 3 months for a study abroad/volunteer... (more)
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)
I had digestive problems my whole life. But after losing 50LBS and eating mostly healthy foods and whole grains I had normal stools. I switched to primal to be more healthy and mostly to fix emotional issues like anxiety... (more)
I have been doing mostly paleo for about a year. My problem is I have issues with eating meat. It doesn't make me sick or anything, and it makes me feel energized...when I can actually eat it. I don't know why but I have psychological issues with... (more)
Been in ketosis since April 1. Last week,I started to notice trouble swallowing. Not bad,but not normal. It was really dry in the back of my throat. Drinking water didn't help... Continues to happen. Then I started to have trouble with my eyes..... (more)
I've only been eating Paleo for 2 months but wow, the overindulgences the past two days have really given me issues. Anyone else feeling the effects today? I haven't slept well and reflux was back... :(
I've been on Paleo diet for 3 months and for past two months have been lightheaded and having trouble digesting. Dry heaves sometimes after lunch, feel the need to burp but can't. I'm thinking that I should cut back even more on meat and go more... (more)
To follow this diet I have already cut a lot of the carbs for sure. The problem I am having is my parents believing in what the doctor says like if it is something that it is a law. I am sure the doctor are still on the concept that carbs is good... (more)
A growing number of doctors now actively support Paleo or Paleo-like diets. The bottom line is they want the best for you. Do what you can to bring the issue up in the calmest way you can, at a time when they're least stressed and so most disposed... (more)
I currently live in Southwest Iowa and have been living primally for the last couple of years. But I often feel like, sometimes, advice given from other Paleo-subscribers is meant for warm-weather conditions. For instance, I find it pretty... (more)
Ok so it's ravenous girl again, little over a month paleo, pretty consistent diet in paleo fashion, after last posted question appetite not quite as bad, only had one un-paleo day. I stepped on a scale recently and I know weight is just A number... (more)
You might want to step away from the scale and pick up the measuring tape. Keep a weekly log of your waist/hip/thigh/bicep/wrist/etc. measurements. It may also be hopeful to keep a picture log. At the end of the day weight is weight but it doesn't... (more)
Ever since I started working graveyard, I have the most difficult time trying to sleep when I get home and when I do fall asleep, I wake up after 2 hours feeling like I've had 8 hours of sleep and when I try to go back to sleep I'm unable to so I... (more)
It's been about 72 hours on an all meat diet. My meat intake before wasn't a very high percentage of my diet, and the change has been kind of abrupt. My body is adapting pretty well and I believe I just ran out of my glucose stores. Everything... (more)
Peggy at the Primal Parent says it played a role in her breakup. I would say it definitely has played a role in past breakups, but usually a small one. For example, in one relationship we had both lost a lot of weight together, but then he... (more)
Theres no way I can afford to go to seminars or buy the books or really any of that. What am I supposed to do? I need a good structure of foods that I can eat without my stomach cramping and so far that seems like a vegetarian diet centered around... (more)
Would you be willing to try gelatin? It is high in protein and might be easier to digest. I recommend great Lake gelatin. Its how I get a higher level of protein since my digestion is so messed up right now.
At first I thought it was a mental block, because I had pushed being vegetarian for so long, so I had just sorta pushed through each meal, but... I really don't enjoy eating meat, I mean, I love bacon fat and I love eggs (more so the yolks), but... (more)
I've been on the paleo diet for only one week and seem to have no problems sticking to to. I know a week is nothing. I plan to stick to it for ever if I can and if I loose some weight. However, I've been experiencing severe muscle spasms in the... (more)
Have any problems or unexpected negative consequences manifested after being paleo for a year or more? I've been paleo for 6 months, and I love it. Quick results are part of paleo's appeal. Now, though, I want to be prepared for potential LT... (more)
I started paleo three month ago and until now i haven't had any problems. Before around a week Ii started having stomach ache an hour after eating breakfast (eggs and meat). Ii decided to stop eating breakfast and there was no pain but the pain... (more)
I bought some Natural Calm magnesium citrate supplement about four or five days ago. I bought it because Robb Wolf recommended it, and I occasionally have trouble getting to sleep, but so far it seems to be more of a detriment than an aid. The... (more)
I ask this because my boyfriend is largely derisive of paleo circles, insisting that the majority of the world does just fine eating carbs and grains. He acknowledges that sugar isn't great and that people eat too much of it, but for the sake of... (more)
I've recently started paleo. I can't eat eggs scrambled with a bit of coconut oil but I can eat them cooked into paleo waffles. Why? Mt stomach was never sick prior to changes my eating habits slowly over the past 7 months.
So here is the thing i have been paleo for over a year now and never been better! Im allergic to dairy and wheat. But now i am in Thailand training @ http://www.tigermuaythai.com/ in Phuket ( i strongly recommend for everyone to try this) My... (more)
http://paleohacks.com/questions/15395/perfect-health-diet-alleges-4-dangers-of-paleo#axzz1xAk7zVcA Since this was from a year ago, I'd like to re-ask the question. Is ZC safe short term? I'm doing it for a week, now I have one more thing to... (more)
I have been ZC (essentially, very small deviations now and then mostly consisting of non starchy veggies if I'm eating out) for four years. I'm healthy, strong, funny, smart, and can kick ass!
I've always had a slight tendency to having cold hands and feet and if I sit still too long my feet can go numb and my hands sometimes juat randomly go numb throughout the day. But since starting VLC paleo a month ago it seems to have gotten worse... (more)
