Meat burnout?--I go through periods, where I just want to eat raw, plant things. I've had to battle cravings for tempeh before even though I never ate it regularly. I get sick of meat 3X a day.
So I was listening to Abel James' podcast where he interviewed Mira and Jayson Carlton and Mira at one point discusses her previous unhealthy diet where she ate spinach salads for lunch. There seemed to be an inaudible OMG coming from the podcast... (more)
Maybe it is desperation, but I feel like there must be something to restoring beneficial bacteria to your skin via "live" masks. Going to try it out with goat kefir later this week but I am wondering if anyone else has tried yogurt / kefir / any... (more)
I have used a mask made of home-made raw full-fat yoghurt, turmeric powder and raw manuka honey. It's great for inflamed skin (I make it thicker for a spot treatment mask, or thinner for an all over mask). Be aware however, of turmeric's potential... (more)
Each day at lunch a friend of mine enjoys a bowl of pre-cooked organic white rice the she buys from Fresh and Easy. The ingredient label reads: Organic white rice, Glucono Delta Lactone. When she asked what Glucono Delta Lactone was, I was at a... (more)
It seems to be a reoccuring pattern on these boards, people who have to completely avoid nuts and nut butters (myself included), because they trigger an instant binge. Does anyone have any literature on why nuts have this magical power to induce... (more)

So, I recently went to the doctor for shot, check-up, and a few other things. At the end of the appointment I mentioned that I've been having this tender soreness just on the inside of my right hip, in my pelvic region. The doctor checked my lymph... (more)
I'm curious about light therapies in general. I've been considering a light box for some time now for SAD. In the meanwhile, I have visited a tan salon a few times for a pick-me-up. I do enjoy it, go occassionally and always cover my face with a... (more)
Are tubas paleo? Some people say they are but I don't think that people had tubas in paleo times. Should I switch to organs instead? I hear lots of people say organs are more paleo than tubas. But which type of organ should I use? I really... (more)
I've been doing hardcore elimination diets for a year or two, experimenting. I was never able to stick to ketosis because of the carb cravings. It took tremendous willpower and I could only do a couple of months without cheating. Recently I... (more)
I do think micronutrients matter, particularly in ketosis. The iodine in the scallops can help support the thyroid, which is important since there is some evidence that low-carb can lead to low-thyroid issues (which may actually be more about... (more)
I've been paleo-flexible (dairy if I feel like it, small indulgences when I feel I'd be missing out) for about 10 weeks, and I've dropped almost 20lbs and made great strides in my sports training. My adult-low bodyweight thus far is right around... (more)
You need to be evaluated by a healthcare provider. If access (usually related to lack of insurance) is an issue, call your nearest public health clinic and ask if they have a women's health care program/ Nurse Practitioner that can evaluate you.... (more)
this is odd, but weeks/days i am eating more carbs especially seasonal fruit now, my nose is A LOT rounder lol. when i stick to meat fat and veggies, it is pointier... is it just water or is there something to this?
My question is how to avoid this state? I am apprehensive that I may be overconsuming calcium in the form of two eggshells per day. What is the best dose per day for the athletic young man and what are the best arguments pro and con?
This contradicts just about everything I thought I knew about type 2 diabetes. From http://www.diabetes.org/diabetes-basics/diabetes-myths/: Myth: Eating too much sugar causes diabetes. Fact: No, it does not. ... type 2 diabetes is caused... (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've gone through the other period threads and didn't find anything like what I'm experiencing; if I missed something, please link away! This is my first period since going paleo. I've always been regular with predictable symptoms. I was very... (more)
has anyone really explained the success of leangains? i cant find it if they have (wolf, devany, anybody... crickets) i will start it out and give my best guesses as to how they can do what they do 1) young males with still-optimal hormones 2)... (more)
I haven't been a smoker in years. But ever since I started IF a week ago, I've been craving cigarettes like mad in the evenings. It's a fairly strong craving, so strong that I actually went to the store in a moment of weakness and bought a pack. I... (more)
A team at China???s Agricultural University has managed to get human breast milk from cows. Yep. Through genetic modification, researchers inserted ???human genes into cloned cow embryos which were then implanted into surrogate... (more)
I'm going to assume you're not really asking whether this is paleo. It's from GMO cows, afterall. The real question is whether this is a better alternative than formula for those who cannot breastfeed.
im a 35 year old woman and ive been paleo for about seven months now. ive lost 30 pounds, and would like to lose another 30 but expect it to take a long time because my body really, really clings to fat. ive had two babies, most recently 16... (more)
I appear to be suffering from withdrawal symptons, which I can only ascribe to the lack of posts from PersonMan recently. Is this normal, and to be expected by Paleo followers, or am I alone in this?
Last week I cracked open an egg and the whole thing was filled with blood. Has this ever happened to anyone else? Would you have eaten it? What's the weirdest food anomaly you've ever experienced? (more)
when I took this screenshot (on the PH homepage) it already had around 20 answers when I clicked through the question link (http://paleohacks.com/questions/168308/is-skinnyme-tea-weightloss-tea-safe.html) (more)
I've been noticing recently that I have acute digestive reactions (cramping, pain, nausea, all sorts of intestinal distress) when I eat: 1) runny or raw egg yolks, and 2) any egg preparation which has a skewed yolk to white ratio (sometimes I... (more)
