I'm a 19 year old college student struggling with how strict paleo to be, and how much to eat in general. It's pretty hard to be perfect paleo on a meal plan in a college cafeteria - for example, they put milk in all their eggs! :( The... (more)
I have on-again/off-again digestion issues, and I was considering doing strict paleo PLUS avoiding nightshades, eggs, alcohol, dairy, and all nuts and seeds for the first 30 days. This sounds very restrictive, but I'm willing to do it if it'll... (more)
I'm pretty sure that the Practical Paleo book has an eating plan that would help you. She has an autoimmune section that avoids nightshades. Her recipes are really good. I've been happy with everything I've tried and she has reccomendations for... (more)
Ok so first of all, I have searched this board as well as others and haven't found too much information that fits my health issues. I am a 21 year old, 6' male, about 172lbs and looking to gain muscle (and lose bf). I really don't know my bf%... (more)
The first thing that sticks out is the lean meat. No reason to go lean if its grass-fed. Minor reason to go lean if it's not (fatty acid ratios that are minimal to begin with). Cuts closer to the bone are often cheaper. Going with bone-in roasts... (more)
So I'm on my 2nd week of the paleo diet and have been wondering if I have sabitoged myself with putting a tablespoon of creamed honey in my coffee the past3 days? I also have been having cravings for smoothies and have had one with frozen fruit... (more)

I ask this question because my friend who is paleo thinks I'm too restrictive since I choose not to eat grains, dairy, veggie oils, legumes, soy, and corn. He eats peanut butter, butter/cream, white rice, and adheres from grains only like 80% of... (more)
I did go on a paleo diet for around a week and started feeling a lot better. Unfortunately I had a lot of stress at the time and went back to my old eating habits. I think being strict on this is hard because if I go out with friends to a... (more)
Go strict until your ailments are minimized or eliminated, then add foods back until you start seeing changes in ailments. Acne is a sign of inflammation. Get healthy and then experiment. You may find 90% compliance better than 100% health wise... (more)
I don't eat out often, but I just ignore the whole subject of oils when I do, what about you? It seems to me that people with serious health issues would be wise to be completely strict, and while I don't have cancer, I do suffer from migraines... (more)
I found the Primal Blueprint 8 months ago and have lost 60 pounds. I went from 240 to 180, size 18 to 12, at 5' 4". For the last couple of months, though, I've been regaining and relosing the same 6 pounds. At this point, I don't know what my... (more)
...and did you feel any different than when you were less strict? These are the three horses of the SAD apocolypse, hence singling them out. I haven't gone more than a week or so uber-strict, because of the odd dark chocolate, Chipotle... (more)
