Hello all! Today is day 1 for me on paleo, and I just found this site and I was wondering if anyone had any tips on how to utilize paleo for weight loss. I just went to Trader Joe's and picked up some grilled chicken, kale, and spinach. Does... (more)
I just finished a 30 day challenge on Paleo and made it through unscathed. I feel good, skin looks good, and I dropped a few pounds. Even though my husband and I told ourselves we could "cheat" when we finished the 30 days, I really don't want... (more)
Just starting Paleo. How many times a day do you typically eat? I am used to eating 6 times a day, 3 meals and 3 snacks. I am not sure about eating high fat 6 times a day. Help please!
Eat when you are hungry. Eat as much as you want. I used to eat the way you describe. Measuring and counting. LOL Now, I eat twice a day, as much as I want. Your body will adjust when you get off the carb merry-go-round.
I tried paleo a while ago to little avail, but I'm jumping back inI feel great...energy is up and all, but I'm having some issues. Firstly, I recently started lifting more and cutting back on cardio. I LOVE it and feel so strong, but my fat loss... (more)
What really helps me is eating a larger protein packed breakfast. It gives me a great start for the day. I also eat every couple hours. This really helps me keep cravings down. Best wishes.
I'm a programmer and IT professional who lost a leg in a motorcycle accident a decade ago. I want to loose weight that I've gained and a podcast I listen to (The AtlAtl Daily) claims the host lost 80+ pounds on Paleo with minimal physical... (more)
I'm tired of people looking at me with disgust or confusion because I do not eat junk like the average American. Aren't you constipated without eating fiber? Aren't your arteries going to clog from using bacon fat to cook? What exactly do you... (more)
Hi everyone, I am new to paleo and just wondered how long it takes to feel "normal" and have increased energy? I think I made a mistake in getting over-excited by the paleo treats (I began making paleo cakes, truffles etc. in the first week). I... (more)

I've done atkins in the past and it was pretty ok...slow weightloss compared to severe calorie restriction....but as soon as carbs came back so did everything else..... I want to try paleo but there are some things that I must be realistic... (more)
I have a very finicky stomach. There are a few foods I know I can't eat at all and other foods I know I can only eat small amounts of. But eggs, oh those lovely eggs get me every time. Somedays one egg gives me such stomach pain that I want to... (more)
Hi there, I've been experimenting a bit with Paleo diet and most of the time I find it is brilliant - I have so much more energy, better concentration and never get the sugar high and lows I used to. I can't do it 100% as I live at college at... (more)
Hey Guys, Sorry I'm new to all this. I've got a few questions. Since going paleo I've cut my carb intake and upped my fat with nuts, avocado, adding olive oil to my salad. I'd like to know: When pale dieters talk about low carb, do... (more)
I highly suggest buying a scale... I bought one pretty cheap at Target... it makes measuring a whole lot easier, and over time you'll get good at eyeballing how many grams are in a serving.
I just started the paleo diet and am unsure about how to ease my way into it. I have totally cut out carbs and most dairy products with the exception to milk along with other non paleo foods. I have been eating lean meats, nuts, fresh veggies... (more)

No one seems to know why it is i am getting a running nose for the last 3 days days of 100% compliance with paleo. (previous question) I had been doing 85% compliance for 5 weeks but had a short fall by drinking a bit of alcohol over a 2 week... (more)

Close friend has gut dysbiosis and is finding "healthy" (actually healthy, not SAD-idea-healthy) confusing. Previous attempts at Paleo/PHD resulted in too low carb/no energy, or feeling overly restricted. (along the lines of "Non-grassfed... (more)
Hi all! New here to paleo hacks, so give me a break if something like this question has already been on here.. BUT I hve been researching the paleo diet for about a year and have finally taken the plugs after a gradual introduction to the... (more)
Oh, Hey! I'm a college student too and am pretty paleo except some rice...which doesn't even do me any justice when I eat it...I just eat it cause i'm poor and it's brown rice and not as bad as other things. I really am not even eating it much... (more)

I cannot believe one can eat too much pumpkin. There are paleo populations who eat 60% calories in sweet potatoes, nutritionally very similar to pumpkin, and they have no diseases of civilization. I think you are doing very well.
