Hi, I'll give you a summary of my diet and supplements, I'd just like you to answer what could cause constipation. I ate (for the last couple of days, it's not really paleo as I'm slowly turning my diet into a paleo one, and I'm quite new to... (more)
I love breakfast, love love love! With Paleo my breakfast is just not as much fun anymore. No more hot chocolate, no more bread with cheese, no more yogurt. Most of the breakfast tip I find is left over dinner or egg breakfast and I don??t eat... (more)
Should I expect to see my hirsutism resolve naturally while following a paleo diet? I am diagnosed with PCOS and have seen blood work come back with low estrogen levels and moderately elevated testosterone levels. Insulin resistance is suspected... (more)
I did not. I started drinking spearmint tea daily and that was like magic. If you haven't tried it it's worth a go.
I eat grass-fed ground beef on a regular basis for dinner. I am noticing that my digestion is significantly better and I feel better the next day, compared to when I have some other meat for dinner. I seem to be more regular, less rock-in-stomach... (more)
This question is not asked by me personally. I have been emailing someone back and forth trying to figure out how to fix his problem. His situation is very unique. I hope someone can offer him some advice. If you want or need to know more then let... (more)
So I just came across the Paleo way of living about a week ago. Over the past two years (due to health problems), I've eliminated dairy, wheat/gluten, and soy. I lost 20 pounds, felt better, and lost my brain fog. But now I am having issues with... (more)
I just wanted to share my success story with yall. I got married in March of this year. Since then I discovered paleo and converted. I started easing into paleo in April, and by May I was eating fairly strict paleo + beer. I have been unable get... (more)
I keep seeing recipes for paleo pancakes floating around the blogosphere but don't know what to top them with. What do you top yours with? Any ideas for a maple syrup substitute (using maple extract, perhaps?)
Does anyone here brew Kombucha? Any favorite recipes? How do I get mine bubbly like the stuff they sell at Whole Foods? Have you ever tried brewing Kombucha vinegar? Kombucha wine?
I dropped my blender last week and am in dire need of a replacement. Is there a paleo-approved frontrunner? I'm thinking I'll get a hand/stick one (like the kitchenaid immersion) for small stuff, mayo, and baby food but I really need a regular one... (more)
Hi all, I was wondering if anyone out there would have any suggestions for consuming raw meat(other than with your mouth of course). Specifically, I am interested in reducing the time spent eating tough meat via grinding etc. What methods of... (more)
you can marinate it in vinegar or other herbs. that also helps to kill some bacteria and germs. Maybe with garlic and cayenne.There is probably some recipe in the internet.
admittedly, i have not read but one Paleo book and i would like to purchase one that contains a sound comparison of a good neolithic diet vs. Paleo. i bought a copy of the revised "The Paleo Diet" a couple of months back and was supremely pissed... (more)
My husband just built me a solar food dehydrator. For some reason I'm feeling a little bit intimidated by it, and I can't figure out what types of stuff I should put in it. (I read meat was a no go for safety - thoughts?). And after I dehydrate... (more)
I love dehydrating all kinds of things. I have two American Harvest dehydrators, which I double stack with only one electrical unit, and I picked up a vintage Excalibur at Salvation Army for $6, after eyeballing them for a long time and planning... (more)
Does anyone know of a good doc to speak to about bio identical hormones in the Bay Area, CA? Or any legitimate websites or resources to look at to educate myself on it. Google searches just turn up tons of random links.
Try Doctor Gary Ross, he's in San Francisco. There is another guy over around Los Gatos who is a big advocate. Trying to think of his name. Get back to you on this.
I went through a phase where I was only using vegetables as condiments to my protein/fat, but I began to feel like crap. I increased my vegetable consumption up to two pounds daily and I am feeling better. I'd like to know how much vegetables the... (more)
I don't eat any vegetables as a source of significant calories. I've always felt loosely that vegetables e.g. spinach, broccoli, etc. or things that grow above ground that aren't fruit, are not the most optimal food sources. I guess in a survival... (more)
I went into a "health"/fitness store the other day. They mostly sell whey powders and body building supplements. While is was in there browsing around to amuse myself, several people came in for water refills. I was curious why people would come... (more)
Your body has an intricate and highly reliable system for maintaining Ph balance within a carefully controlled window. The acid/base diet and similar practices have been studied and shown to be 100% nonsense.
Are you hard core restrictive or open minded about what you consider paleo or do you vary it based upon your environment your new hormonal balance or as you age into your later life?
Open minded, open ended, always evolving.
