I never really though of fruit as real food that you would eat in a meal. To me, fruit falls in the same category as nuts and seeds. They're good as snacks and that's it. I think they are nature's candy. I find it so easy to overeat or binge on... (more)
Fruits are not necessary as depending on seasonality, they were not always available. A lot of research is starting to come to light about metabolic pathways, fructose, and seasonality. It's some pretty cool stuff and it will be cool to see what... (more)
Hi, Which fruits and vegetables are heathier cooked than raw? I was thinking that maybe carrots are heathier cooked because it is easier to digest. Thanks, Philip
Hi I'm just curious if what this website is saying is true regarding hybrid plants, http://www.rahealing.com/Hybrids.html I am not sure how else to find out if this is true because I am not a scientist. " Hybrid foods will not grow... (more)

I'm on a strict a Paleo diet except for vegetables (I only digest avocados) and fruits (I only tolerate berries). Anything else (veggies) I try to eat gives me bad bloating, IBS and unbearable insomnia. In the last weeks I used juicing 2 cups a... (more)
Does anyone on here have any thoughts on canning fruits and vegetables for the winter? In my attempt to become more self sufficient and not rely on the grocery store, I would like to preserve as much of my own veggies that I have grown or bought... (more)
My father and I, are interested in eating just raw fruit and greens for a week, in the summer here when stone fruit, berries, bananas, figs are in season. Just for kicks/for the sake of it. Usually we eat meat, veg, fruit, cooconut and olive oil,... (more)
I've read "Solution" and "Blueprint" and fan of paleo, but this lady claims that she lost 40lb on raw vegetarian diet. How it's possible? Is it high risk for insuline resistance and diabetes? UPDATE: carbs become glucose and get stored into... (more)
Hello fellow paleo community Abit of background first. I'm 22 years old, 6'1, 180 pounds, 7-8%BF, strength train 4 times a week. I've been following a fairly strict paleo diet for the past year. After numerous attempts at various diets (vegan,... (more)
I want to buy a freezer for my the hubby and I (both Paleo but some dairy) to freeze some farmer's markets produce and pastured meats for winter when my local farmer's markets end around Thanksgiving. My goal is for the produce to cover from... (more)
I heard something on a Robb Wolf podcast (I think) or maybe I read it in Lights Out, but it got me thinking. There are always a lot of questions about fruit/vegetable consumption. What kinds to eat, how much to eat, etc. Our ancestral diet... (more)
After watching Sugar: The Bitter Truth multiple times, I keep wondering about why fruit would contain fructose if it can only be bad for us. Of course, like Dr. Lustig said so well, fructose in fruit is minimal compared to today and often comes... (more)
Following on from the broth question, what are some good paleo sources of magnesium and potassium? Broth doesn't have that much apparently. Seeds have loads but are too high in linoleic acid, ditto nuts (or 200g macadamia nuts, which would be... (more)
Lets say: (a) that I live in a city where exotic fruits + vegetables aren't sold but all the common North American fruits + vegetables are plentiful (I can get raspberries in my corner store but not, say, Quinoa), (b) that I want to eat more... (more)
Hi all. I have a quick questions. Do you all limit the fruit you eat? It seems many people who are eating Paleo limit how much fruit they eat. I eat as much fruit as I want. I would love your feedback on this. Thanks all.
I was reading a post where someone claimed to not be getting variety since switching to a paleo diet, and I found that baffling since my own food variety has increased substantially since going paleo. I remember reading a while back that upwards... (more)
Someone mentioned raising carbs from VLC to LC for lethargy. It worked. Vegetables for breakfast, lunch and dinner with protein. Wanted a dessert so had a poached pear with a little cream, 1 Tbl nuts, cinnamon, raw cacao powder, and 1 Tbl. Dakota... (more)
I lost 40 lbs eating chocolate regularly. Sure didn't stop me! Context is also key, though. Eating dark chocolate kept me from eating larger portions of worse things. YMMV.
So I was checking out the paleo food list and I noticed that it recommends all the fruits, but condemns starchy tubers. Now I know sweet potatoes have a lower fructose count per 100 grams than ANY fruit, so what's the deal? Fructose is the most... (more)
I am new to paleo and am not sure what I can eat. I cut out carbs from my diet, but I eat plenty of fresh veggies, I want to know if sweet potatoes and corn on the cob are alright to eat and are there any fresh veggies and fruits I should stay... (more)
Hi. I've been reading about Paleo for some days now. I've read articles, Cordain's book, and right now I'm in the middle of the one Wolf wrote. It is my understanding that I should not feel hungry with Paleo. Thing is I kind of wanted to do a... (more)
Durian rider did some new blog on paleo diet. He analyzed the looking of some paleo gurus, how he call it. Its much stuff what he tells. The new video is interesting. He is very active and can run well. That is fascinating. I dont wanna judge... (more)
I've decided to become paleo due to an insulin resistance, and migraines. I'm also concerned about my weight and I just want to generally become healthier. Now, I'm sort of picky but I'm open to trying new things. I love all fruits and meats, but... (more)
Fruit has too much sugar so you'll want to keep your fruit consumption down to a minimum: try to limit it to 1-2 servings. If you eat more than that in the beginning of your paleo journey, don't stress. Just try to taper it off and experiment with... (more)
