Homemade Sweet Potato “Chips”

One of my favorite ways to get carbs in my diet is homemade sweet potato rounds, or "chips". As I've said before, I need a good amount of carbs in my diet or I feel terrible. I do some sort of exercise 4 to 7 days a week, whether it's walking, climbing, running, sprinting, riding a horse, or doing high intensity interval training. I know it's possible to do that while on a high fat, very low carb diet, but … Continue reading

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

The Dreaded Detox

So you've signed on to Paleo Plan and you're 5 days into it.  You're not feeling the amazing effects of the diet that so many others before you have, and in fact, you feel worse!  Naturally you're asking, "Is this really worth it?"  Almost everyone who is on the Paleo Diet or similar plan has been right where you are - you are not alone.  Let me explain what's going on. This way of eating is pretty different than a … Continue reading
