I've been primal now for 2.5 months. I'm not really having an issue with lack of carbs--in fact, I've been really good at avoiding breads, pasta, rice, etc.--I am struggling with sweets. Cookies, cake, chocolate, candy... You name it, I love it... (more)
I'm not trying to argue if it's wrong or not. Only thing I know is that we love the taste, but feel guilty after ingesting candies and such. Is there any hormone response that's bad for our health just by tasting them? (more)
hey folks. i am going to keep this quick. i have been on paleo for a month and a half now. i love it. i feel wonderful. however, i am craving... and i mean craving sweets. a slice of pie... cookies... chocolate... i saw organic peanut butter... (more)
Hey guys, Before i converted to eating paleo i used to chew chewing gum daily! Is it really that bad for you as i miss having it! Would probably only chew like 1/2 bits a day but what's everybody's thoughts on it? Does anybody else chew it? Ryan (more)
Hi everyone, I'm looking for suggestions for something easy you can make when you want something sweetish after dinner but you don't generally keep things like honey or coconut flour in the house. Something quick, easy and that doesn't need to be... (more)
I have always had a sweet tooth but since starting paleo (2 months ago) it has gotten soo much worse. I will eat well all day but then come home from work and have these intense cravings. I do try to ignore them but they are the worst cravings I... (more)
This is driving me crazy! I have been Paleo for 2 months and was never big on sweets pre-paleo. When I started Paleo, I was still not big on sweets and was not craving them much at all - just had a piece of 85% chocolate once a week if so and was... (more)
I'm usually good at eating paleo during the day. Late at night is when cravings for sugar/carbs really kick in. If I give in I feel awful the next day, so clearly it isn't good for me. Any thoughts on why it's consistently in the evenings? Or how... (more)
So I started this whole Paleo style eating about 2 months ago at 6ft 231 pounds I'm now around 193-194 lbs. Whats odd is once I got below 196 I started having sleep issues. By sleep issues I mean I would go to bed fine at about 9-10pm but was... (more)
If I have a protein/fat meal for dinner I sleep terribly. So I started eating carbs only for dinner and am sleeping very well now.
I just found this wonderful online company, but unfortunately most of their products are candy and nuts. However, they do offer a multitude of freeze dried fruits and veggies. Plus they have dried coconut (unsweetened!) too! Win! So I got a... (more)
So I love eating paleo; all of the health benefits, the lack of calorie counting, and the overall happier lifestyle. However, there are certain moments when I feel the desire to enjoy a fine cigar, a quality beer, and maybe indulge on something... (more)
I don't have a sweet tooth. I don't crave any food. Given a chance, I would choose spicy food rather than sugary ones. But what I don't understand is why some people crave sugar so much. Yesterday, while at the grocery store, I overheard a girl... (more)
As of late, i have been in a funk, not depressed, not sad or angry but just feeling uninspired, not excited in general; as a result, I noticed that I'm using sweets as a reward/out of boredom and thinking about sweets/treats more as a mood... (more)
Hello all, I've been a paleo for about a year now and have noticed that about every three months, I get grain, sweet or milk cravings and consequently give in and fall off the wagon for a bit. Does this happen to anyone else? If so, are there any... (more)
Halloween is upon us and I'm wondering right now for all the kids knocking at my door. How can I treat them with some sweets without tricking them into bad things? Do you know of any paleo sweets that will be accepted by the kiddies and are good... (more)
We give quarters to each kid. They're excited to get money and we're not contributing to their sugar intake.
Hi everyone! I desperately want to get lean and mean. I started the slow carb diet in January of this year, and I went from 188 to 174 in about 4 months, because I cheated more often that I should have. But, after following the diet very strictly... (more)
For the past few days it seems like I've been thinking non-stop about sweets - brownies in particular. Yesterday, a brownie was directly offered to me, and I didn't partake. I'm happy I didn't, but I can't seem to shake this 'need' for something... (more)
So, I have a sweet tooth...Going 'paleo' has sort of enhanced that craving. Whenever my mother sends me cookies, I gobble them down within 2 days. Same thing at work. Being on such a low sugar diet makes me cave into sweets that much easier... (more)
Do you agree with paleo-censorship?
