I am an athlete (basketball player) currently on the paleo diet. I am looking to lean out, but feel as if I will not get enough energy if I take both fruits and nuts out of my diet. Which of the two if taken out would yield better results for... (more)
nuts are far more calorie dense than fruit. take the nuts out, keep the fruit. it's VLC mythos that fruit will magically prevent fat loss. energy balance will always rule, even if people are too stupid to believe it.
I've been trying to educate myself on ketosis both for fat loss and for increased flexibility (decreased appetite, clarity of thought, ability to fast more easily etc.) but the more information I get the more confused I become. Recently, I've... (more)

Ive recently dropped all carbs(SAD) from my diet except fruits/vegetables ( I still consume about 200+ [grams? calories?] carbs from fruits/vegetables alone ). I have never been a big bread kinda person anyway, but occasionally after a long run I... (more)
I've been living in India for a few months now and eating Paleo is a challenge, to say the least. Chicken, mutton and fish are my only protein options, so I've included dairy out of desperation. The rural village I live in has cows so the paneer,... (more)
As as endurance athlete, I eat a lot of sweet potatoes, butternut squash, pumpkin, and other squashes. Recently I've been told that I'm looking "orange"- like I fake tan look to me. Is this from eating a lot of orange foods? Or is this in... (more)

I posted a question earlier today (titled Why isnt this working?) and someone said my Crossfit training could be causing too much stress, hindering fat loss...but if thats the case, then why are athletes so lean? Conventionally speaking, I can... (more)
Hi All Just started going paleo and am interested to see that, in some paleo circles at least, potatoes are considered a safe starch and acceptable (even necessary) for athletes. What are the thoughts on potato flour? Kind regards Reachy (more)
Hey all! I've been on and off strict paleo for a little over a year and a half now. What I mean by that is I never consume grains, but sometimes I'll eat more fruit in a day than is probably allowed/suggested, and I use honey/agave nectar from... (more)
I love frozen berries. They are low in sugar and taste amazing. Paleo or not, if you like them eat them. 20g per cup, you could eat 2 cups a day and still be LC. And they taste so good with greek yogurt.
What sort of meat can I make for myself on short notice for breakfast? I've had no luck finding paleo-friendly sausage at the nearby 'Whole' Foods, and I'm at a loss as to how to get more protein in the morning. Would a vegetable omelette perhaps... (more)

Lately my legs have been feeling really weak, almost as if they have no strength to move, and at times they feel so tight it makes me dizzy (does that even make sense?). I do HIIT sprinting twice a week, about 3 hours of soccer during the week and... (more)
Sounds like low glycogen to me. There's no fixed number of appropriate carbs that works for the sedentary as well as someone who is obviously highly active such as yourself. Everyone here is so paranoid about glucose when they should be focused on... (more)
I suppose this is aimed a little more at the CrossFitters out there. When I initially started CrossFit and eating Paleo, I went with the CFHQ recommendation of eating Zone proportions several times a day. While I did start to get lean, quickly, I... (more)
I need the calories but I am sensitive to some of the more tastier fats, like coconut, avocado, and nuts. Is there a way I could sneak in more tallow in a tastier connotation? Maybe a sauce or something, where I can't taste it directly?
