Holla! I am an almost 3 month-paleo enthusiast. Feel and look much better since going primal. This morning I decided to go on another level of wellbeing and to cut coffee for at least 30 days (hoping that I could do a permanent change after... (more)

I just started on Platinum Plus today which contains all of the essential amino acids and apparently requires no digestion...it simply absorbs in the small intestine. I have IBS along with chronic fatigue and many foods just don't sit well with... (more)
I want to lift heavy things, press heavy things, move heavy things. I also have a very limited budget and live in NYC. Any suggestions/inspiration/ideas for free/cheap/DIY heavy thing activities and/or regimens that can be done outside/in a small... (more)
Has anyone had a reaction to Pamela's GF flour Mix? I don't have the bag in front of me for the ingredients, but my sister and nephew had diarrhea within minutes following making some pancakes with it, and my daughter just had a couple slices of... (more)
Hi all, after reading Chris Kessner's post on Kefir, I thought I would try the Organic Lactose Free kind I found at Whole Foods. I was wondering what kind of experiences you have had with it. It's only been two days but my stomach has been... (more)
Ok so here goes: I am a mom to 3 (almost 4) & my oldest son never had digestion problems. My daughter started having severe constipation at 6 months & has fought it ever since (age 4 now). We tried everything for her & nothing... (more)
Wheat is typically listed on the bottle for most soy sauces, but there does seem to be some debate over whether the gluten actually remains after the fermentation process. Thoughts? is soy sauce an issue if one wants to stay gluten free? I know... (more)
I recently heard from a friend that they had read in an Anthropology magazine, that there is evidence that our ancestors ate sedge grass, and lots of it. What is sedge grass? Does it contain gluten? Should it be considered a grain or vegetable?... (more)
I have been for 2 weeks and my teeth have gotten yellow plus it seems to make my breath smell. Its just normal Tom's of Maine toothpaste. Has anyone got any advice?
Last week I talked to a woman who was selling pork. I asked her what her pigs ate and she said they foraged, but also had access to grain. She said grain, then soy. I took her pamphlet, but not sure about contacting her....I want to buy 1/2 pig in... (more)
Has anyone tried eggs from FAR Wind Farm LLC.<> They are a small family owned farm in Williamstown NJ,raising pastured free range eggs and have soy free!<> I found them on Localharvest.org Search Farms New Jersey. I'd like to know if they... (more)
@Patty 5 Absolutely worth the drive, you can also find their eggs at the Collingswood Farmers Market. Very friendly family farm, as soon as you arrive you know you have found the real deal.
What is the barometer out there for baked items, specifically those using Dates as the sweetener. In moderation of course. I just whipped up this Apple Crisp with Salted Caramel Topping. I don't have much of a sweet tooth, but felt like... (more)
I've been doing high intensity lifting at home with free weights and i'm seeing great results. Was just seeing if anyone else does and has any ideas for me to add to my work out routine?
Getting a pullup/chinup gimmick that mounts to the door frame is pretty easy they run around thirty bucks. Mine made a mark on the frame but hasn't damaged it.
I am a hair over one month of eating Paleo. Overall I have been about 95/5 or 90/10. I am down 21 lbs from when I started and I feel better than I have in years. My body has leaned this way... head, neck, chest, stomach...and now legs while my... (more)
I've been gluten free for 4 years since I was diagnosed with Celiac. I have it bad. A trace amoun of gluten puts me over the edge bad. Been Paleo for about 6 months and never felt better. However, for the first time in a year I had an accident.... (more)
What are you guys thoughts on gluten free products, like chips and pizza? I dont mean as a staple but as an occasional cheat. I follow a pretty strict paleo diet but do indulge in a GF pizza or other product on occasion. Are they better than the... (more)
If you're going to cheat on occasion, why not cheat better? I doubt anyone here maintains a perfect 100% adherence (now and forever mind you) to whatever their definition of paleo is, so I don't see any reason why you shouldn't indulge in the... (more)
I put together a free ebook about my take on the paleo diet and how it could be improved to better our health and longevity. I wrote it for a bunch of people that wanted to know what I "really" do for health (because they constantly hear crazy... (more)
