I am very new to the Paleo diet (only about two weeks) and wanted to know if coconut milk really does help you lose fat?!? I thought it was high in cholesterol and increases your LDL level! I am allergic to almonds so almond milk is out. Could... (more)
Cholesterol is only found in animals, not plants, so there is none in coconut. And dietary cholesterol does not raise cholesterol in the blood. Dietary cholesterol is actually very good to consume, especially for hormone function.
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.
So. I've heard a lot about crossfit on here and other places, and I'm seriously considering signing up for a class. Frankly, I'm nervous: I'm really out of shape and have never done the "gym" thing (though I know crossfit is pretty different from... (more)
Can someone tell me about their first experiences with CROSSFIT. I have been a fan for awhile, but just haven't been able to get my behind in a gym. I have made a commitment to myself that once I'm done with my 90 fitness challenge at my martial... (more)

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 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)

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)

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)
Hi everyone, I asked a question back in '12 and folks around here were VERY helpful, so apologies as I bother you all once more. Brief background: I am attempting to work on a "strict" Paleo lifestyle and wasn't sure if the Turkey Bacon I... (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)
Im still very new at paleo and i read something that really confused me, I thought as long as i eat from the list of paleo foods I'd be fine and would lose weight but now I'm reading that I still have to watch my carb intake. How much carbs are... (more)

I switched to paleo a week ago and I feel amazing. I have about 15 pounds to lose, but my primary reason for switching was to find a lifestyle rather than a diet. I keep reading about how difficult paleo is and the detox process. I haven't... (more)
You are doing the right thing. People that are more metabolically broken are more likely to suffer before getting used to paleo. Just eat lots of real, whole foods and get some quality exercise and you will be fine.
