I have been doing paleo for about a month now. I feel really healthy and my stomach/fatigue problems have gone away. My issue is I still feel internally conflicted between paleo and vegetarianism. I know meat is very healthy for my body but I... (more)
Hello, this is my first post on Paleo Hacks. I'm hoping you can help me a little with my wife and "conversion" issues, plus a new health challenge. My wife is pretty much the complete opposite of me on fitness ... well, sort of. She does... (more)

Do you ever have moments where you think that this diet might be wrong? That saturated fat IS bad for you? (as the NHS tells me it is and even some parts of the paleo community do too) or that grains ARE healthy? When you look at vegetarian... (more)
I'm surprised I haven't seen this here yet. I was wondering what people's thoughts here are on Quorn, a man-made protein product. It's not made from grains or soy. It's a mycroprotein. http://www.quorn.us/About-Us/ I normally eat eggs and... (more)
It's highly processed with various additives, so it's quite bad IMHO. I used to eat that a lot when I was living in the UK (I had a phase where I tried to limit real meat 12-14 years ago).
I've recently and suddenly been experiencing creaky knees and night blindness. (Damn, I'm only 44 and walk "everywhere", those joints should be OK, right?) I'm guessing I'm missing a nutrient or two or 30 years as a vegetarian is catching up to... (more)

I'm new to paleo. I just read this and now I'm a bit confused. The scientific basis of vegetarianism I keep reading different articles and each person says the other way of eating is unhealthy and will lead to health problems. They all sound... (more)

I don't really know what to do here. I've been eating meat for the last ten years or so after being vegetarian for most of my life, but I still only ate it fairly rarely. I never cooked it at home, but would order it if we were out. Other than... (more)
I'm a vegetarian, and not willing to give that up at this point in my life. I do eat both eggs and dairy, and take fish oil for the DHA.I also supplement with B12 as a precaution. I can't bring myself to actually eat fish. I want to apply paleo... (more)

I know there are a lot of former vegetarians on this site. Does anybody know of people who tried Paleo for at least 30 days and then went vegetarian? Just trying to satisfy my curiosity here. I recognize this may not be the best place to ask... (more)
Going back to vegetarianism after a taste of Paleo would be like going back to live with my parents, it would be absurd.
Having spent so much time as a vegan, one argument I heard frequently was that humans are naturally herbivores, so consuming meat is harmful and "unnatural." Unfortunately this also seems to have seeped into pop culture as well and I've also heard... (more)

I think it's more that our bodies get used to particular things and don't react well to change in general. It's like how tourists typically get sick from drinking the water but locals can drink it and be fine.
After going paleo in the last weeks, the issue of what one eats have been coming more frequently during my conversation with my friends. Surprisingly, I found out that quite a few of my friends do not eat meat. They don't publicly label... (more)

So let's say you can only afford or only have access to organic/grass fed meat say....once every couple of months. Are you better off going vegetarian or eating conventional meat with all the hormones/antibiotics etc?
I came across this by complete accident. Is this this a unique example or the first of a more extreme counter-push to the vegetarians? I personally think it's a bit much but also sometimes do fear that vegetarians will infringe on my future... (more)
