Several times I've tried sticking to an extremely low-carb diet (75% fat, 20% protein, 5% carbs). And each time I've tried, I've gotten the weirdest symptoms: extreme fatigue, anxiety, mental fog, fever/chills, weakness/dizziness, and heart... (more)
I am on day 8 of paleo and am experiencing really bad sore throats, especially when I eat fruit. Has anyone else had this problem?
I am an 18 year-old female, senior in high school, and I started the Paleo Diet on Monday of this week, so 4 days ago. My coach, who is a crossfitter, told me that I may experience symptoms like headaches in my first few days of Paleo. But so... (more)

So, I am thinking of trying ketosis again, because the first time I did it, I only went three weeks, I didn't feel good, and I did not lose weight. I was wondering if anyone has experimented with ketosis who does not need to lose a huge amount of... (more)
Yesterday I found out that I am pregnant! I'm a little over four weeks along (going by last menstrual cycle), and the real kicker for making me think I was was the fact that I woke up feeling like I was coming down with the cold or flu. Headache,... (more)
One of the weirdest symptoms seemed to clear up with the adoption of a gluten free diet (I was undiagnosed celiac until last year!). My trichotillomania is gone. For those of you who do not know what I'm talking about, it's a hairpulling disorder... (more)
I've been doing PHD type paleo for quite a while now and been feeling awesome compared to before. Overall my symptoms have improved quite noticably but sometimes I catch myself micromanaging every little detail and it causes stress :/ ..But don't... (more)
I've been taking 5,000IU of Vitamin D pretty much daily since I'm not getting much sun this winter. It seems I get kinda light headed, dopey, and I feel "out of it". Is that because I'm magnesium deficient? Yesterday I didn't take any... (more)
Luckily my appointment with the G.I specialist is only a few days away. But in the meantime, im still curious about what SIBO's symptoms are, and if i guessed right ( if i have SIBO) I've got: chronic constipation ( 1 on the bristol stool... (more)
I also had a positive breath test for SIBO. My symptoms were daily diarrhea, bloating, and extremely foul smelling gas. The antibiotic they gave me didn't help, but going grain free did.
I returned from a week long vacation a few days ago. While away I ate many non paleo foods such as grain, milk, and suguar and I drank some alcohol. I've learned my lesson and won't do that again - I gained several pounds and felt awful. My... (more)
One new thing that I added to my diet that I had never previously consumed is stevia. Ever since going LC/Paleo, I have used pure stevia powder as my primary sweetener. I have been putting it in coffee, whey protein PWO drinks, recipes, and even... (more)
Question: is there a period of "detoxing" when you begin the Paleo lifestyle, including uncomfortable body aches and other symptoms? How long should it last, and will it eventually go away completely? Hubby and I are on day 14 of our 30 day... (more)
Eat more starchy carbs, ditch the nut butter and nuts or eat very minimally and make sure you get adequate calories. These tips should help. Buttering up your meat is a good way to increase cals.
Last week I cheated... I had a small pastry based cake every day for about a week. So there was sugar, probably bad fat and gluten in there. No symptoms to speak of at the time. This week, a day or two after the last cheat I spent an hour and a... (more)
It could take two hours or two weeks. It really depends on the dosage and your own body. Have you noticed the stabbing pains a few days after consuming any other foods?
I've noticed that certain non-paleo foods have specific effects on my body. I was wanting to compile a list of these, so that when I encounter certain symptoms, I know what exactly is harming me. For example: When I eat too much sugar... (more)
I appear to be suffering from withdrawal symptons, which I can only ascribe to the lack of posts from PersonMan recently. Is this normal, and to be expected by Paleo followers, or am I alone in this?
To make a long story short, I have IBS, bad seasonal allergies, eczema and asthma. My asthma started bothering me after 10 years of no symptoms (and no medication). My osteopath (osteopaths are not doctors where I live) told me that the cause... (more)
I was wondering what symptoms everyone has experienced in ketosis. I've heard that you can get a metallic taste in your mouth. But what about night sweats? They started for me about the same time I went into ketosis. Is this a normal symptom of... (more)
I have a health concern that I am really lost trying to narrow down, hope you can offer suggestions of things to look into. The past couple of years, when I believe I catch a virus, I feel so incredibly, severely run down, fatigued and foggy, yet... (more)
Since starting Paleo (4 months ago) I have discovered that the major reason I feel so much better on this diet is that I definitely have gluten sensitivity (NCGS), and Paleo has eliminated pretty much everything that can cross-react with gluten.... (more)
After a few small indulgences on Christmas Day I woke up a little congested, with a back ache, and craving cookies. I'm planning on a high protein breakfast followed by a fast day. I'm curious how those who celebrated are doing. UPDATE: I felt... (more)
Here's a weird symptom I've been having. Been on no grain, no legumes for about a month. Before that they were minimal and always prepared according to WAPF directions. I feel great, but this past couple weeks I've been getting a weird earwax... (more)
Okay so first I started pretty much eating only sweet potatoes/tuna/bannanas. For a few days, I felt amazing. No more morning brain fog. Slept better then ever in my life etc... Then a weird thing happened, I started having this odd metallic... (more)
I've constantly been having flu-like symptoms, like fatigue and headaches for about a year now. I cut out gluten from my diet 2 years ago, but I still eat glutenfree grains. Can those also cause those kinds of symptoms? If someone has a problem... (more)
Skin tingling, disorientation, anxiety, peeing frequently, getting cold easily, shortness of breath, dilerium, lack of cognition, twitching, random sharp pains: these are the list of symptoms I had today after one week of paleo. I had weaker... (more)
