Welcome! I've been diagnosed with hypoglycemia and tried my doc's dietary advice for awhile. I gained weight and was a slave to food. The blood sugar crashes on the "eat 6 times a day" program were awful. Since I discovered Paleo, I'm amazed at... (more)

what happens if I eat an english muffin two or three times a week? Does that ruin the diet? Also, what limit to the three real meals a week?  Like a hamburger?  Bad?

Yes, it does ruin the diet.  Some people insist that cheat meals are ok and advise this to others.  They aren't ok.  Wheat and other gluten containing grains cause a lot of damage, even in people who don't obviously react to them.  It does take a... (more)

The recipe uses the ramen noodles uncooked, crumbled up for crunch. What can I substitute? Looking for something very similar, it already has seeds. Could I do something with rice noodles? Besides frying

Hi all, I started eating 100% paleo about 10 days ago, and have seen no weight loss. I work out 5 days a week (cardio and yoga, starting strength training now). I'm 20 years old, 5' 6", and weigh 146. My normal weight is about 130, but I recently... (more)

Paleo is not magic, it takes time.  10 days is far too little to see any results.  Many diets may claim you'll see results that quickly, but the only thing you'd lose is water weight when you cut out carbs and some salt.  That doesn't reflect on... (more)

I'm confused about which nuts are truly Paleo -- macadamia but not almond and walnut? Apparently macadamia nuts are the only nuts that don't have any inflammatory properties, yet almonds and walnuts are widely acceptable in all the Paleo literature. (more)

Perhaps a better thing to do is reconsider your life style, or at least figure out why you currently prefer just liquids, so that you can actually eat mostly real foods instead of highly processed crap in the form of a shake.
