I started Paleo a week ago, and after about 4-5 days of the diet, I have noticed some strange things in my mouth--dry/chapped lips (never a problem pre-paleo, so not winter-related), sore/raw roof of mouth, and back of tongue is sore and it... (more)
So many people report amazing cosmetic side effects of eating the Paleo way - can I eat to purposely create a specific desired side effect? I have always had very pale lips, and my malabsorption problems aren't helping. I would LOVE to have... (more)

I'm three weeks paleo as of today and seeing lots of improvements like fitting into a too tight skirt and not wheezing on an awful humid day like today. I even think my hair is getting thicker! But the weirdest thing is my lips look fuller and are... (more)
