I've been exercising for the past few months and noticed that my BMI is about 20 which seems a little borderlne low and I've been losing weight without trying in spite of stuffing my self. I worry that I might end up underweight unintentionally... (more)
Well I've been taking in about 70-100 g protein/day and I thought that carbs combined with protein stimulate muscle growth. At least I can see and feel more muscle on me.
Lately, I've been doing 2 meals a day, both high in fat. I like to hit the gym or do some form of exercise in the mornings most days fasted, where I usually come home and eat afterwards in that recovery window. I came across a post where... (more)
I'm 39, male, and when I've had access to weight machines I've usually been able to lift the stack. Now, under slightly different circumstances, I have a pair of 25lb dumbells available to me during the day (one hand could hold both at once to... (more)
I've been eating Paleo for the past 2 months. Recently I've altered to a low-carb diet (50g) or less. On days that I don't work out, I feel great, am rarely hungry and mental clarity is superb. Whenver I workout, whether it be morning, afternoon... (more)
Most places I look say that grock would not have consumed coffee. Yet Coffea canephora, a species of coffee, originates from a large percentage of Africa. All a cavemen would have need: mortar and pestle, fire, coffee beans.... (more)
Where does the asymptote lie for diminishing returns on exercise duration under various levels of intensity?

I've been Paleo for quite some months now. When I was over in Haiti, I didn't eat Paleo for a week. I got back, had the runs, and now I'm back eating Paleo. It's been about a month since I was in Haiti, and I've had brain fog for the last 2... (more)
Hello guys and girls. I'm looking for some help with this. My farther is not a well man. He is very overweight (European size XXXL shirts to give you a picture), his blood sugar is border line diabetic, he smokes what appears to be 10 a day and... (more)
Inspired by this question about CrossFit, I'm wondering what people think about Body By Science, (in some ways, the polar opposite of CrossFit)? Broadly, BBS calls for a very intense, ultra-slow weights workout once a week, potentially lasting... (more)
Hello.I'm basically very, very out of shape. Aside from hearing from what I consider trustworthy Paleo-oriented sources that HIIT exercises often give the best results, I don't really know much about exercising in general. I weight 280 pounds,... (more)
So, here's the thing. I am an avid, some would say extreme, exerciser. I am just one of those people that find something they like and then do the shit out of it. So, like 6 years ago I started working out on a daily basis (before that I did a lot... (more)
I just put my eating data on cronometer.com and saw that I was 45% fat, 30% protein, 25% carb. I was fine with that and everything but then saw that I was eating only 1700 calories a day. That is like 900 cals under what is recommended for me... (more)
I know my way around the gym, but I have tried so many things the past few years with no results! For awhile I was running 3-4 times a week, at least 3 miles each time with one longer run. Then the other days were Bodypump or a spin class or... (more)
I'm a 26 yo female. Up until this august I was extremely active (probably over doing it) and now I can't seem to do any type of extended activity without feeling wiped out. I took off a few months (just took it easy) and tried to focus on... (more)
I've been eating paleo for over a year. I lost a couple of kilos and seem to have plateaued at 59kgs even though I could visibly do with losing a few more. I would never go back to eating a SAD diet because my psoriasis and also some visible... (more)
I have been run down recently due to a change in my working hours which means i have to get up stupidly early Monday-Friday. As a result i've developed shingles at the very top inside thigh. I tried to get more sleep where i could & laid... (more)
Obviously I'm running this through my ignorant, modern-Western paradigm of beauty, but it's something I noticed a while ago. Gay men are generally in better shape than their heterosexual counterparts of the same age. Is it because men are... (more)
I have been on the Paleo diet since March 2013. I have been great except for one caveat, I am underweight and can't seem to gain at all. And also I am Vitamin D deficient. I saw a nutritionist and she told me I should not be exercising, but she... (more)
Not much feedback last time I asked so I'll simplify things. Let's say you don't need to lose weight and are only slightly interested in gaining muscle mass, but are a little obsessed with avoiding the diseases of aging and mental... (more)
TLDR: I want to live a long time and stay in good physical and mental shape. How much exercise do I need, and what kinds are best? I'm not trying to lose weight. Let's not dwell on muscle mass right now either. I'm 28 years old, 6'2 and under... (more)
Three months into paleo and my weight loss has been plateauing for the last 3ish weeks. Just wondering if there are certain exercises that will speed up weight loss, such as sprints? What about cardio? Let me know about your experiences! Thanks! (more)
TL;DR I'm doing basic exercise and skipping carbohydrates altogether, I want to lose weight. Will bananas be an adequate supplement and do you have any other ideas. Stats: I'm 5'10", weight last measured four months ago was 240 pounds, lots of... (more)
Hi all! I will be a freshman at university in a few short weeks. I've been eating clean for nearly a year, paleo for almost 6 months. For the last 2-3 months, I have eaten dairy. I do not have any food intolerances, so I will eat things like... (more)
