sounds weird to call a recipe "yogurt" when it's a fruit smoothie. but yes, i've been making this for years now and it's great. totally satisfies any sweet craving.
... why not just eat fruit and spare your body the effort of converting it? If someone does not have metabolic problems and is not trying to lose weight (heavens forbid!) then fruit is a good choice right? whenever I eat complex carbs I end up... (more)
I am paleo since 3 years and I lost 70 kg of body fat and gain 12kg of lean mass. After reading studies I think maybe are another variable on carbs controversy: ethnic group. Based on latitude you can get more fruits and vegetables and lean... (more)
I work a typical 8-5 workday. I do CF almost every morning and I am hungry most of the day. I eat snacks at 10, lunch at 1 and another snack at 3:30. I usually eat fruit, but I'm starting to think I eat too much of it. I try and stick to low... (more)
No-cook options: avocados, jerky, olives, nuts (coconut, walnuts, anything really), cucumbers, carrots. Cooked options that "don't smell": cooked sweet potato "chips" (just baked fries, really), cooked veggies of any kind.
I have been trying to follow fodmaps and basically staying away from most fruits besides blueberries and maybe half a banana occasionally. Today I decided to eat a nectarine with my lunch, about an hour later I am super bloated and SUPER nauseas.... (more)
I'm trying to lose weight, and though I've just been having a fresh pressed juice in the morning, I'm afraid it's stalling my weight. I was trying to get the benefits of raw kale etc, but I'm not sure it's worth it. I usually juice 1 apple, 4... (more)
I think one of the most important dietary changes I made when going Paleo was to start having zero-carb, high protein breakfasts. Before that I was eating sugary or starchy foods for breakfast and i think i was getting an insulin surge first thing... (more)
Hello I'm trying to get an idea of what 100g of carbs via veggies and fruit looks like. I've more or less cut grains out completely but before I started learning more about paleo living I really stepped up the fruit and veg intake (about 10... (more)
3-4 apples or 200 oz. of broccoli. If it's green then it'll be a ton! If it's a fruit then it will be much less. 3-4 cups of berries, 4-5 pears, etc. just mix and match until you have what will keep you full.
Hi everyone, So I've been pretty Paleo for several months now. Cottage cheese is the only dairy I eat, and I only have it a few times per week. I also eat legumes (black beans, lentils, etc.) but I do not touch flour, rice or corn products and I... (more)
I have recently started eating paleo and I've found that my weight loss plateaus if I start eating fruit, even just a small amount and this does appear to be a common occurrence in plenty of other people. Why does this happen and why is fruit... (more)
I'm thinking of getting a vitamix and checking out some recipes and it looks like all the smoothies have a lot of fruit and thus sugar in it. I am currently not eating fruit as trying to do less than 50 carbs a day for weight loss. The green... (more)
Assuming one is not allergic to citrus fruits, would consuming them have a negative impact on healing a leaky gut? I ask, because I often see leaky gut healing diets recommend no citrus fruits. My guess is, they do this since citrus fruits are a... (more)
I began excersizing and weight lifting a year ago, and have since lost about 25 pounds. I am almost at my ideal weight but would like to get rid of some stubborn fat around my midsection!! I recently started doing crossfit (only once a week) in... (more)
I hear a lot that fruit rots your teeth, but, it just doesn't make sense to me. I mean, aren't chimpanzee teeth made of the same material as human teeth? Chimps eat a LOT of fruit, and their teeth don't rot out of their mouths. If fruit does in... (more)
Hi I just started paleo 2 weeks ago, I am aiming to lose body fats. I kept my carbohydrate low, around 100g a day and they usually come from fruits. I have been eating low GI fruits like cherry, raspberry, strawberry ect. Recently I found that... (more)
When I eat fruit I seem to get brain fog even when I eat low sugar fruits like berries and apples. I do have adrenal fatigue so that might be why but I don't have this problem with bananas. I get mild brain fog when my veggies aren't well cooked... (more)
How to eat Paleo when you don't like fruit and limited vegetables. I did "Belly Fat Cure" and now even thinking about eggs, of any kind, makes me sick to my stomach. I luve alone abd do not like to cook. I wiuld rather have cereal for dinner than... (more)
I'm a snacker, I like to have something on hand to nibble on. I don't snack on bad things (all the time) but I've been thinking about getting a dehydrator to dry some fruit. From a paleo perspective, is this a good snack? too high in sugar? worth... (more)
After being diagnosed with thyroid problems (poor conversion of T3 and T4) that were immediately solved by going off VLC/LC, I found my carb sweet spot of 75g after introducing safe starches like sweet potatos and white rice. I was considering... (more)
I'm wondering cause I am trying to get my energy levels up, and most people say eat more carbs. I truly dislike most tubers so I've been eating more fruit, but since I've had problems with hypoglycemia in the past, I don't what to over due it. I'm... (more)
Hello Paleo Hackers, I came to Paleo for mainly to change my mood. I've had clinical depression for almost a decade now and am still transitioning to Paleo. It's hard to assess what my mood will be like once i am fully acclimated to the diet... (more)
I inadvertently fell into a paleo diet while trying to cure my 4+ year long struggle with moderate depression (dysthymia) and the addiction to carbs and sugar that came along with it. In terms of 'normal mood' changes that I noticed, I find myself... (more)
I was wondering whether the "Dirty Dozen" list of vegetables and fruits to buy organically would still apply within the UK. I guess this would depend on where the produce is sourced from and whether there is any correlation between the UK and... (more)
Organic in the UK (at least as it is labelled in supermarkets) only confirms that the item is not GMO. It doesn't have any bearing on whether or not pesticides are used. You're better off going to a farmers market and confirming with the grower or... (more)
Some say that fruit is OK since we're better able to assimilate the sugars as a result of the protein within the fruit? So in theory we can eat copious amounts of fruits and be OK? We crave sugar as human beings, because we evolved to realize... (more)
I'm doing well since I switched to a high raw diet. Only difference between you and me is that I have a little seafood or organ meats every day too, but most of my day is full of fruit and veggies. I did actually have about a week there where I... (more)

Disclaimer: I'm not really looking to lose weight. At 5'6" and 120 lb, any weight I lose should not exceed 5 lb vanity weight. However I do like the idea of eating cleaner and cutting out processed junk, especially because of how I hear when you... (more)
nobody can say how much fruit should be allowed on the paleo diet, although fruit is absolutely paleo, because there are wild fruits all over the planet and must have existed in paleo times. eat whatever amount makes you feel best.
