I'm a psychotherapist which is a super sedentary job. It almost made me want to reconsider professions. Actually I used to be a paramedic and it was very sedentary. You sit ALL DAY in the ambulance while waiting for calls. I'm now using a standing... (more)
I've been having hypothyroid symptoms lately (Cold hands, fatigue, etc.). So I decided to track my temps. This made me notice something interesting. At work (standard stressful corporate job) I frequently have cold hands. When I measure my temp I... (more)
been paleo for two and a half years, was perfect for the first year which i attribute to just graduating college and having lots of free time and energy. However once i started working things started to get rough. I work as a case manager for... (more)
As 2014 quickly approches, it's the time of year that many people start reflecting on 2013 and making goals for 2014. I've followed a Paleo diet for 4 years now and have seen great benefits from it. Yet the world seems so alien to me know. I... (more)
Many paleo folk talk about "cheating" and eating more during the weekend, but for me , it's the opposite. I can go all Saturday and Sunday or any vacation day without eating (I manage to eat one meal only if I force myself). I'm just not hungry on... (more)
Ok so I've been strictly paleo for a month and a day now, except for last night, when my demons had their way with me. I totally went off the rails, like TOTALLY. I think the end tally was something like: 2 magnum ice creams 2 drumstick ice... (more)
We take turns at the office each week cooking a good lunchtime meal for the team. What would you recommend making to introduce 12 hungry, typically bread-eating guys to the world of paleo? It can't be too expensive and it has to be something... (more)
I really need to incorporate more bone broth into my diet, and I'd like to do so by sipping some in the office. Does anyone do this? Do you microwave the broth? If not, how do you heat it up? Do you just bring it warm with you to work in the... (more)
Hey all! First time poster here :) Love this community, btw. :) Been following for a while. Anyway, I had a question (obviously :)). I eat paleo and have 3 square meals a day and occasionally do snack. I'm a student and always eat before class... (more)
I need some suggestions of snacks I can store in my desk at work. I don't have a lot of space, and it needs to be something that can be okay in a desk for at least a week, though I'd prefer longer. I am really easily distracted, so it is hard for... (more)
I will start a new office job soon and want to eat a Paleo lunch. My thoughts: bring a crock pot, toss in some veggies & sweet potato with butter, let simmer. And: meat. Maybe a tiny George Foreman grill? Bring a pack of frozen grillable meat... (more)
I'm working a typical 8-4 / 9-5 ish desk job right now. I wake up at 6:30/7 to get my stuff together and bike to work (~30 min low intensity cardio). Trying to get in the habit of stopping by the gym for 30 minutes of weight training on my bike... (more)
Hello there! Just turned 20 and I'm back home this summer from college. I'm slowly (with a lot of road bumps), integrating Paleo into my lifestyle. This is something I want to do my health, not just for weight loss. So I'm also trying to find a... (more)
I think your job as a waitress would cover most of your needs, assuming you were busy and not sitting around, it's a lot of movement and carrying stuff around. I'd probably still try and lift heavy weights once or twice a week if possible.
Ok, strange observation maybe. On day three of eating nothing but paleo (I have been about 95% so far), I noticed that my energy levels started to increase. Maybe this is just in my head, but day four I woke up and HAD TO WALK AND RUN THE... (more)
I'm relatively new to paleo and loving it. I have no problem adhering to Whole30 rules, until now. I work as a construction inspector for a state agency and will be spending the majority of my summer paving. This means walking next to a paver,... (more)
So I've been doing the paleo thing for about a year now, for general health. Its been great for just about everything, but I have a problem coming up. I'm going to need to work 2 shifts each week that require me to wake at 330 am. I generally go... (more)
I was never the type of person that had a life-plan of work until 65 then retire. I always felt that working this long for 8 hours a day (or more) is NOT what I want to do with my life. This thinking went on the backburner until I discovered... (more)
So I read these 2 articles... http://www.robbwolf.com/2008/11/03/post-wo-nutrition/ http://www.marksdailyapple.com/muscle-building-and-carbs/#axzz1nJqwPxCF And I'm kinda confuzzled on what a good post workout meal should be. robb that sweet... (more)
Ok, I just got my yearly blood test results back and of course my doctor wants to talk to me asap because my overall cholesterol is high. I'm happy to see that my triglycerides are low and hdl is high, but should I be worried? I am a 39 yr. old... (more)

Hello, My family and I have been eating primally for a few months. It hasn't been going too well for my husband. He works in a place that only has a tiny fridge for all of the employees to share. It's one of those really tiny ones that are... (more)
Egads! Get him an ice pack, stat!! Not just for soothing bumps or bruises, they keep food nicely chilled until it's time to eat :) You could do a small cooler and container things up - so food to be heated remains nicely stable and things that... (more)
I work in consulting at one of the big three strategy firms. I find it odd that seemingly everyone else in my business is incredibly smart and innovative when it comes to business and many intellectual ideas, yet at the same time physically most... (more)
I usually go to 1 or 2 out-of-town, 2-4 day conferences a year for work, and traditionally have used that time as an excuse to eat/drink whatever the hell I want. My first conference since going paleo about a month ago is coming up at the... (more)
A lot of people in the paleo community are going to say vibrams (which i have) but i feel like these might be sub optimal for a lot of lifts and exercises. What are your thoughts on vibrams and what are your preferred lifting shoes?
