HiyaSome background. 24, female, 5ft 3 or so, 47kg with adequate fat and gaining muscle rapidly. I have been on a paleo, gluten-free and corn-free diet for about five or so months now, doing very well and healing my gut after being diagnosed with... (more)

I don't feel any different not eating gluten for 30 days. However, having read Wheat Belly, and listening to bits and pieces of the gluten summit, I'm convinced it should not be a staple in my diet. I never eat it at home, but if I'm on... (more)
I'm new to the Paleo diet but it has tremendously helped me in the past month with energy levels and resolution of back pain. Now i'd like to try having paleo pancakes but the coconut pancakes don't hold together. I recently bought the Namaste... (more)

I have been eating Paleo for 6 months now. I do eat rice and potatoes and but no other grains or gluten containing products. I am getting enough calories and eat till I'm full. At first I felt great and I lost 15 lbs bringing me to my ideal... (more)
Was wondering if because theyve taken the gluten out if it counts as a paleo friendly alcohol. Thanks :)
I've decided that for my lunch, I do have to cheat somewhat. I have a pretty demanding job and while I still won't be eating out, I'd be taking lunch to work. Since I stick to the Paleo autoimmune protocol, I stay away from gluten, dairy, eggs,... (more)
honesty, are you really that self conscious? eat well, get well and get over it. make some heavy stew and pack it in a thermos, then you don't even have to worry about heating everything up
I'm kind of amazed, since I was told by three different dermatologists I had "genetic" female hairloss, not related at all to hormones or other factors. Yet since starting Paleo, my hair re-growth is astonishing (it looks pretty much 'normal'... (more)

Are the gluten free beers the best option for someone trying to stick to the paleo diet? When I drink I usually drink vodka or tequila but sometimes I'd love to have a beer and not feel too guilty about it. Are there any beers that are an 'ok'... (more)
I know that grains are a big no no in paleo. This question is just for curiosity. "The grain is anything but defenseless, though. It has an array of chemical defenses, including various lectins, gluten, and phytic acid, that disrupt your... (more)
Glenn Gaesser is a professor at Arizona State University who asserts there are no benefits to going gluten-free, and he also says there are benefits to eating gluten... but having spent lots of time reading posts here, most Paleo Hackers agree... (more)

I have been unable to find a gluten and soy free Worcestershire sauce commercially-- does one exist? If not, is there are tried and true homemade recipe (perhaps using coconut aminos?) I currently use French's which is gluten free, but the soy... (more)
Lea & Perrins is the original Worcestershire sauce, and is widely available. It contains neither soy nor gluten. In fact, in a cursory look at the ingredients label, it doesn't have other funky ingredients, either. Real food, I'd say.
I'm aware that mooncakes don't pass the paleo purity test, but I'm not looking for an optimal food, just a once-annually treat that won't give me IBS flareups. I've seen some in Taiwan that were made with mochi and other other things, but I don't... (more)
Hey all, I'm an avid free diver and like to bring home some abs and rockfish when i can, but the only tried and true way of cooking abs I know is either breaded and cooked in grape seed oil or put in a ceviche. Does anyone know how I can cook up... (more)
Does anyone have a recipe for a gluten free, sourdough, Paleo 2.0 bread? That means it does not include any sort of nuts, coconut flour, gums (xanath gum), or sweeteners. I tried one with buckwheat before and it was decent, but not great. Has... (more)
1 being = NOT BAD AT ALL 10 being = OMG THAT'S SATAN! It seems that I have developed a bad habit for these gluten free bars at Starbucks. The label says gluten free, wheat free, dairy free. It's basically filled with nuts, cinnamon, seeds,... (more)
Is it okay to eat properly prepared and soaked gluten free grains as an occasional starch for a really active paleo person? i normally eat sweet potatoes and acorn squash, but it might be cool to switch it up a bit. any thoughts? i know that the... (more)
http://yourlighterside.com/gluten-free-low-carb-buns-aka-oopsie-rolls/ Has anyone tried these? Are they any good? Not paleo, due to the cream cheese. But they should qualify as primal, right? (more)

"test pasta made out of flour from dried ground bananas, egg whites, water and guar and xanthan gums, which add firmness and elasticity." Or you could just skip the additives and make fried plantains or patac??ns. Or eat rice pasta, I suppose I... (more)
I have been eating gluten-free for over a year and recently started eating Paleo. I know people have seen dramatic results with a Paleo lifestyle, however I'm guessing mine won't be quite as dramatic since I had already given up gluten. Has... (more)
