Hi everybody, I'm following a diet mostly based on the criteria of the perfect health diet, but ultimately I'm eating less and less rice, at breakfast I eat almost zero carbs (usually eggs, green tea and some vegetables) and about a... (more)
Why did you go paleo/PHD? Sounds like the typical drastic change in diet causing problems. Our bodies aren't designed to change diets quickly. Add back your old food and adjust slowly, if you have a reason to.
I'm in the process of finding a new insurance company... and that alone takes about 3 months before your policy starts. But as soon as I'm able to I'll get my leg checked out if it doesn't get better. I started working out again 2 weeks ago.... (more)
So I have been on a strict paleo diet for about a year. No dairy, legumes, sugar, wheat, and very little fruit. Carbs are pretty low, fat pretty high, and protein is moderate. I was on vacation last week and thought It would be alright to eat... (more)
Hi all, iv'e been eating paleo/primal for 2 years now, im not very strict (70/30) but have had excellent results. My question is, although all is good mood/energy/clarity etc, i developed a ganglion cyst in my wrist shortly after starting my... (more)
I've had a dry nose for over a week but didn't think about it too much til I got back from vacation as I was i a cold place. It was red and tender inside my left nostril. Suddenly, I got a "bump" just outside of my nose and thought it was a... (more)
I went for a short (1.65 mile) run at 4 pm when it was 104 degrees with high humidity and about halfway through my hands got uncomfortably fat, I mean really huge. There was no other swelling in any other body parts, and it felt so weird that I... (more)
A gf of mine is a nurse and I asked her about this last week - I had done some heavy lifting with a new grip and wondered if I just stressed the hell out of my hands. I'm just going to keep it simple and give it to you exactly as she sent it to... (more)
I'm not sure exactly what's changed, but my ability to bruise seems gone... I was playing Ultimate Frisbee, leaped up at 45deg full sprint, collided with another guy doing the same opposite direction... I was a little higher up and my lower... (more)
I think a lot of what we had for our whole lives considered to be "normal" was actually the human body in a degraded state. I've noticed that cuts heal quicker, muscles recover faster from workouts, what once was tiring is hardly noticeable etc. I... (more)
I probably have a distended abdomen, at least it looks like that to me. It looks ok as soon as I wake up but later on during the night it looks really ugly, as if I am pregnant (I am male, 24yrs). Also I keep getting problems with my stomach all... (more)
For a couple of years I've had consistent bloating, which is always most extreme in what I've figured is my colon, on the right side of my abdomen. When it's most inflamed and sausage-like it's usually accompanied by wild gas and gurgling, so it... (more)
I've been Paleo for about 12 months. Last Thursday I separated a rib(s) in a soccer match...more like a rugby match I'd say. I went to the ER just to make sure it wasn't anything worse. I'd take two sprained ankles and two broken fingers over any... (more)
Help! On the weekend, I succumed to social pressures in the most horrible way and went on a major binge. I had a chicken quesadilla one night, and a couple pieces of french toast in attempt to remedy my hangover the next day. (For background... (more)
