Without watching this movie, I suspect it's mostly proving their point, but not actually suggesting what we need to do. So, to anyone who's seen it, what are the bullet points for what the movie says that I DO in order to heal my brain. Is there... (more)

I've only been on Paleo for about a week and a half. So far I'm living it as I swear I feel better already. Better except for one little thing. I seem to be always hungry. After a big fattening meal I'm okay for about half an hour and then I'm... (more)
Is it normal to be hungrier after having a protein shake? I have been including a protein shake or two a day into my diet by recommendation from my trainer, but I find on the days I have the protein shake that I am so much hungrier all day long.... (more)
Ok, so it seems that I am eternally on a quest to figure out why I'm hungry all the time. I've thought so many times that I've found a cure/miracle food/eating method or routine for it, but the hunger has come back again stronger than ever! The... (more)
I suspect the use of Stevia is making me hungry. I know it's been used in South America as an appetite stimulant for cattle. Anyone else hungry after using it? You have to know that I react very sensitive to sugar substitutes. Especially the... (more)

I don't know your goals but VLC doesn't work for me - I must to have carbs to maintain or I literally can't keep the weight on and my muscle growth stalls. I also do not subscribe to "fat will solve everything" way of thinking, it doesn't work for... (more)

I ate strictly Paleo for 3 weeks. I noticed I felt better, memory was clearer, I slept better, I had more energy, and I probably looked healthier. I don't know how much of it was placebo, but it seemed it worked well for my body. Although, I... (more)
I've come by a lot of articles stating that coconut,especially coconut oil,doesn't make you gain fat but actually hightens your metabolism. I just never seem to get what that actually means.....does it mean that one can eat more (different) fats... (more)

So, after failing to solve sleep and fatigue issues with virtually every possible method I can find, I decided to try paleo, full on, for 30 days. Right now I just finished day 4, and I definitely feel some of the "bad" symptoms that I've heard... (more)
