All There is to Know About Coffee

“Let’s have coffee sometime!” It’s a familiar refrain isn’t it? Coffee is a conversation starter, an excuse to get together and a neurological stimulant. From 16th century “Schools of the Wise” in the Near East that fostered culture and discussion of current events to 17th century “Penny Universities” in England where you could purchase a cup of coffee for a penny and “engage in stimulating conversation” and on to the rise of modern era coffee establishments (Starbucks anyone?), coffee has … Continue reading

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...). I know, even if you won't admit it to yourself, that coffee MAY be affecting your life. Like in a negative way - not the happy, helps-me-live-my-life, buzzy way you experience it. I've written about it before here. Most people have accepted that gluten sensitivity is a real thing, unlike this … Continue reading

The Importance of Breakfast

  I vehemently believe that eating a solid breakfast is THE most beneficial thing you can do for yourself every day. I've actually been experimenting with this phenomenon in my own life lately. I eat a hearty egg-based breakfast almost every single day. However, this week, I've had two instances when I didn't eat my normal breakfast. One time I was super late for a morning appointment and I couldn't make a good breakfast. The other time was yesterday morning … Continue reading

The Cruel Calling of Coffee

Anywhere from 80-90% of the U.S. population drinks caffeine in some form every single day.  More than 50% of people in this country drink more than 3 or 4 cups of coffee every day. To me, this is ridiculous.  I'm sorry, but why are we so hard on alcoholics and smokers for being addicts, but it's perfectly okay to drink a big gulp of coffee that contains a colossal 640 mg of caffeine every day? I know: it's so delicious … Continue reading

Q&A: Fatigue and That Pesky Belly Fat

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. I walk and was even going to the gym… until the low energy got the better of me. I have hypothyroidism… and according to my … Continue reading
