Basically I started being vegan at the age of 14, then went raw vegan an year ago (I'm 18 now). Basically raw vegan has KILLED my stomache. I get such pains that are unberable and have been with them for quit a while. Cooked vegan was better,... (more)
That sounds pretty much like I began. And gradually it wrecked my digestion and energy levels. Adding back in white potatoes, white rice and mung bean noodles sorted me out. But I do regret the low carb year.
I'm currently thinking about doing a whole30 and would love to have a "team" to do it with. Support is great. Someone to bounce ideas, problems, stories off of is amazing. :)
Prize pool is $1000! I've been a paleo lurker for a while and am using this competition to pull the trigger on trying paleo. My plan is whole 30 eating and you are your own gym workouts. Anything else to help win the cash? (more)
Alright so here it goes. I've just turned 30. Love eating, but need to get healthy and loose weight. Am also suffering from intestinal Candida. Have tried fads, detoxes blah blah...nothing lasts. I'm looking to make sustainable, manageable and... (more)
I've been eating strict Paleo for the last 10 days after quitting grains and sugar cold turkey, and over the past few days I've had boundless amounts of energy. Pre-Paleo I would sleep 8-9 hours/night and still feel exhausted upon waking, but... (more)
Hi, I've been on paleo for about 10 days now. I was eating a whole food diet before this as I have an issue with candida/dysbiosis. Since going paleo I've noticed an odd sensation around my heart. IT doesn't seem to be palpitations, its definitely... (more)
Are you now eating something you have not eaten before, i.e. more nuts, shellfish/fish, etc? There may be some allergies, keep a food journal for a bit and see how you go. Possibly a better idea before you start supplementing straight away.
Okay so I've bought in and decided to give this a try to see how it might help. I am active but fat and as I enjoy lifting weights and know that many athletes eat Paleo I though why not. My question is will it severly impair me to eat a serving of... (more)
Fruit should not be a problem in moderation. It may, in fact, allow you to feel more comfortable with your meals in general. If you do have sugar addiction issues, that would be a different story.
Time for the truth: I've gained 25-30 pounds in the past 9 months. Lost my job in September 2011 and launched a baking business in January 2012 [yes I plan to incorporate more gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free, and Paleo options into my sales... (more)
I am 5'3" and 142lbs. I just recently lost 17lbs, using weight watchers. I also workout 5-6 days a week, with various activities. I am stuck at a plateau, but I am confused on how Paleo works and if I need to know how many calories I am consuming... (more)
hi again..i'm interested into how people first heard about paleo? my story is that i went on holiday for 2 weeks, ate so much white bread/pasta (which i NEVER ate before in such vast quantities), felt very very ill/tired/sick and started to think... (more)
As an avid, yet not extreme, minimalist, I am trying to figure out the following question: What are the items that are most necessary for starting to live Paleo? What group of items would cover most of my needs for the least money? example:... (more)
So, after failing to solve sleep and fatigue issues with virtually every possible method I can find, I decided to try paleo, full on, for 30 days. Right now I just finished day 4, and I definitely feel some of the "bad" symptoms that I've heard... (more)
Confession time. I have spent the last two months sitting on my bottom for 8 hours at work and than 4 hours of lecture and than coming home to sleep before doing it all again. No activity at all really. I am closing in on the end (Aug 5th) and... (more)
I started eating Paleo today. Only had breakfast so far (10:00 a.m.) but I'm feeling pretty hungry (not starving, but not satisfied or 'full'). Now, I know the Paleo-approach is to eat when you're hungry, but I realize that this early in the... (more)
He's going to do it! Starting May 1st, my boyfriend and I are going to go 30 days of strict Paleo. I have already gone Paleo once, though I fell off the bandwagon, and that's why I'm starting again. I feel as though I know what to expect. We're... (more)
I???ve been trying for over a year to switch to paleo diet with very little success. I read an article that for a few genetically unfortunate people, certain food addictions can have equivalent power and hold as heroin addictions. As luck would... (more)
So, I believe firmly in the idea that there's no point in starting something until you're fully psychologically prepared to do it, because all the good intentions in the world only backfire if you half-ass it and slip and then beat yourself up and... (more)
I'm starting off with a personal Paleo test. Gonna try it for a month and see how it makes me feel. I am in decent shape, eat consciously, exercise 4-5x/week, drink tons of water, etc. I am 6'1" and 188lbs with around 14% body fat now and... (more)
32 year old female 5'3" 99lbs, no muscle tone. Full strict paleo pulled the fat off her but she struggles with 10lb weights, she fragile and pale. I got her to start adding Vitamin D to her diet, but feel she needs some resistance training What... (more)
Hello to all, Just wanted to say thanks to the owners of the site for the wealth of information so far. Just looking for some quick tips on evolving into eating paleo style. I'm currently roughly 70-lbs overweight. I recently visited a Natural... (more)
I'm new to the Paleo thing. I'd like to be an annoying noob right now and just ask this: how should I get started? Should I even get started? (considering where I'm asking I know the answer I'll get to the second one) I have no problem... (more)
I am just on my 2nd day of going Paleo. First day I was starving, so did my homework and upped the fats today. I only had brekkie, no I am no longer hungry but feel like i could throw up any minute, never want to look at meat again and could go... (more)
Are there any fellow cavemen or cavewomen that are from/around the Saint Louis area? If so I'd love to know where you guys get your food, and how cheap you guys get your food. I went to Trader Joe's today, and although I like their selection,... (more)
I was curious to see what people thought about the order of dropping foods when becoming paleo based on the idea of which causes the most harm. For example I would probably rank my list like this (from most harmful to least): Sugar - messes... (more)
Should I buy Mark's Starting Strength or the next book up Practical Programming? If anyone has experience with both books I just need a little advice. I've been working out for about 10 years now, but basically stuck to a bodybuilding workout... (more)
