Bad News, Guys: Coffee Can Look Like Gluten to Your Body

Here comes the coffee nazi again! More and more it seems my job is to crush people's dreams and take away all of their favorite addictions (grains, cheese, coffee...).

A member recently wrote us in response to my recent post, Paleo for the Active Person, and I thought some of you might be able to relate. Q: I’m stuck. I haven’t lost weight (belly fat) in two months. I strictly eat Paleo via the plan everyday… week after week and now month after month.
