You can be paleo without eating a lot of animal flesh. Focus on vegetables, fruit, safe starches, eggs, and lots and lots of fat. If you're okay with low-lactose dairy, you can get lots of fat and protein and some animal-type micronutrients from... (more)
I have a friend you recently turned vegan. Besides the facts about how dirty factory farming can be one of her main reasons was that she felt lethargic eating meat. Is there any other explanations that would cause lethargy? Without asking her... (more)
Hi! I've been away from paleohacks and also the paleo diet for over a year, as I have been working as a vegetarian chef at a yoga resort in India, and have been eating mostly vegan during this time. I can't help but notice that no matter how... (more)

I'm interested in trying the paleo diet/lifestyle since I've started getting interested in fitness, and alot of people seem to have been very successful with their fitness routines while following a paleo type diet. My trouble is, perhaps due to... (more)
We have had several vegetarian/vegans on the site recently. And I think there is value to engaging in intellectual debate. So, What I am asking for is scientific/ intellectual arguments for the value of the Vegetarian diet with respect to... (more)
I have been a vegetarian athlete since the age of 8, but am very interested in the paleo lifestyle, is there a way to incorporate a paleo lifesyle, while staying strict vegetarian?
Before starting paleo a few months ago I was a strict vegetarian for about 5 years. However I developed severe anemia (which was partly genetic) and other health problems most likely caused by eating such a high carbohydrate diet with lots of... (more)
I think the article was circulating in the Paleosphere of one of the top bloggers or even WAPF. Can't remember! If I remember correctly, the article showed that although we have 98.5% similar genetic material, our digestive systems are really... (more)
Hi, I am an ex vegetarian/vegan/raw foodist. I was meat free for 12 years, from about 12-24 years of age. I love animals. I was a fanatical PETA activist. I love cows, love pigs, love chickens, love love love- meaning I feel a deep connection... (more)
It seems to me that Paleo is sort of a rebranding of the Zone style low/no carb diets that lost popularity after being shown to be unhealthy, and extremely difficult. Is science behind this, or is it the animal agriculture industry? I'm just... (more)
So you are obviously a vegan troll, and not here for healthy debate. So I just have one question for you.... Do paleo people actually go on vegan boards and troll like this? Or is this just something you do?
Hi, I have the autoimmune condition alopecia universalis, (total hairloss.) I got it when I was 15 and am now 34. At 21 my hair started to grow back and by 26 I had quite a lot of hair (though not all.) During this time I had adopted a vegetarian... (more)

How does my blood work look? 38 yo female, 5'7" 122 lbs, 13% body fat, HIIT 5x / week. Gets at least 8 hours of sleep. Should I worry about LDL being small and dense? Dr says 'no' - it's such a new test and no one completely knows how to... (more)
It's hard to stay legume/grain-free on a vegetarian/pescetarian paleo diet. Soy is out, dairy is out, but for me, seafood and eggs are in. I imagine it would be even harder for vegan paleos. What are you vegan-paleos eating for satiation and... (more)
Lyndsay- I probably eat similarly to you. I eat legumes, very carefully-prepared--usually lentils or heirloom variety beans. I also eat plenty in the way of fat (olive oil, lard, coconut oil, ghee). I don't feel good eating grains. They tend to... (more)
Hello all! I'm a 20 year old woman who has been a lacto-ovo vegetarian for 5 years. I always felt healthy and never had a problem with my diet because I ate well and avoided junk. I never felt a real need to change my diet until I started doing... (more)
So I'm sick of hearing spirituality associated with vegetarianism. At some point, eating all those beans are going to interfere with meditation or spiritual practice. LOL. BTW - the hubby and I had much better meditation post-Paleo then... (more)
Hi all, has anyone read this article? http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/guest-blog/2012/07/23/human-ancestors-were-nearly-all-vegetarians/ I've had a few vegan/vegetarian friends push this under my nose, demanding a rebuttal - any thoughts? I... (more)
I am shocked and proud of my vegetarian father-in-law following suit and joining me my husband and mother-in-law in going paleo. He has numerous health issues and is overweight and would benefit greatly from weight loss says his doctor. Like I... (more)
Why is he not eating cheese and yogurt? Where are you getting animal fats from? For a vegetarian Dairy is a must. Learn something from the Indians who have been following vegetarian diet for a millenia.

I'm surprised I haven't seen this here yet. I was wondering what people's thoughts here are on Quorn, a man-made protein product. It's not made from grains or soy. It's a mycroprotein. http://www.quorn.us/About-Us/ I normally eat eggs and... (more)
It's highly processed with various additives, so it's quite bad IMHO. I used to eat that a lot when I was living in the UK (I had a phase where I tried to limit real meat 12-14 years ago).
I am a fish-a-tarian trying to transition to eating more meat, mainly chicken right now. My partner is paleo-leaning, and eventually I'd like to be able to cook just one meal for the both of us. My problem right now is that I'm breastfeeding, and... (more)
