How to Deal with People’s Negative Comments about Your Paleo Diet

You probably get some sarcastic questions and negative comments from people about your Paleo diet, right? I do. I try not to get defensive and upset, even though I know my chiders' diets are usually not-so-great. But sometimes it's really hard to keep my cool. I'm feisty. For instance, the other day, my vegetarian friend asked my husband and me, "So, are you guys still on that Paleo diet?" to which I replied, "Yes." Then, the otherwise peaceful, yoga-loving woman … Continue reading

Q&A: Navigating A Non-Paleo Holiday

We recently received a question from a reader that we think you might be able to relate with. With the holiday season in full force right now, a lot of you are stressing about how you're going to navigate Christmas dinner and dessert without offending, confusing, and/or alienating your family... Q: Hi, I am wondering how you get around being at social functions? Being Italian, big holiday meals are the norm for my family. I get frustrated trying to explain … Continue reading

What Does A Ketogenic Paleo Diet Look Like?

Update: I did a (failed) ketosis experiment on myself that you can read about here, here, here, and here.  Jimmy Moore is dropping weight with the fervor of a college wrestler right now on his experimental ketogenic diet. In fact, he's lost about 47 pounds in the last 3 months, and he's still going. He's an awesome guy and he's been struggling with his weight for a while now, so I'm psyched for him to say the least. He gives updates … Continue reading

Is Paleo Safe for Type 2 Diabetics?

In a word, absolutely! Type 2 diabetics can really benefit from this diet! Eating Paleo removes the foods that mess with your blood glucose the most, and it helps people lose weight, often effortlessly. The Paleo diet consists only of foods that are very satisfying and blood sugar balancing, so it usually leaves people feeling less hungry and having fewer cravings. Type 2 diabetes is what happens when you eat too much sugar/carbs and your body’s cells become desensitized to … Continue reading

Can A Vegetarian or Vegan Be Paleo?

I've been getting a lot of messages lately from vegetarians and vegans wanting to know whether they can eat a Paleo diet while at the same time adhering to their animal food restrictions. As a former very sick vegetarian (no meat, no fish, but lots of dairy and some eggs) myself, it hurts my heart to think of all the good protein veg-heads are missing out on. But I soothe myself knowing that while vegetarians and vegans exist, there will … Continue reading

Not Sleeping Enough Could Make You Fat and Antisocial: Part 1

Sleep affects your health in all kinds of ways; it's not just all about diet and exercise. But getting enough sleep is in the same category as getting enough sunlight, lowering stress levels, and giving up Diet Coke: they're all crucial to health enlightenment and yet they're all regularly ignored by health seekers. Why does being healthy have to be so damn... life-altering? It's enough that you have to scrap the pasta, tofu, and cheddar cheese. Now you have to … Continue reading

My Intermittent Fasting Experiment

That pic is of me, just in case you don't know what I look like... Anyway, Max Shippee's guest posts on intermittent fasting part 1, part 2, and part 3 really got me thinking about experimenting with intermittent fasting. Yeah, I'd played around with eating windows before, like when I was slightly anorexic and not eating anything past 6pm every day, which left me struggling to make it up a flight of stairs with my extremely decreased caloric intake. But … Continue reading

Ketogenic Diet And Alzheimers Make The News

  I'm sure some of you saw the video above from CBN TV about the new miracle potion for Alzheimers? For once, it's not a drug. It's not even a high-carb, low fat diet! Quite the opposite: it's coconut oil and lots of it. The news is breaking that a ketogenic diet can help people with Alzheimer's keep their symptoms at bay. A ketogenic diet is a diet that uses ketones converted from dietary fat instead of carbs as energy. … Continue reading

Coconut oil/saturated fat

Are Coconut Oil, Saturated Fat, and Cholesterol Really Ok?

MANY of you have in some way asked this string of questions: "Why are you Paleo people telling me that saturated fat, including the stuff in coconut oil, is good for me when the whole health world has told me otherwise my whole life? Won't it clog my arteries? And what about the cholesterol in all that meat? I'm not going to have a heart attack?"  And now commences my answer, an outpouring of information you should hold close to … Continue reading

Babies, Peanut Butter, Raw Milk, and Feeding Tubes for Weight Loss

So, I've been a TAD bit busy with wedding planning this week. Engagement photos, suit shopping, flower buying, musician procuring, and on and on. Even with only 23 guests, this thing is very stressful! So I've been neglecting my blogging duties, but I'm going to make up for it by telling you about the most interesting things I've heard in the Paleo world lately. Yes, I do still make time for reading my favorite bloggers amidst my chaos! Baby Boy … Continue reading

If You’re Gonna Cheat, Try to Cheat Paleo

I've written before about "cheating" on the Paleo diet here, but I think it's time to revisit this topic. It's on my mind because my sister and a client have both been having cravings for old favorites lately, and so have I. For instance, here's a text message from my sister, who's been Paleo for 3 weeks now. By the way, she's lost at least 6 pounds and has "been in a better mood for the last week and a … Continue reading

Sweet potato chips

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

How To Make Small Changes To The Meal Plan To Fit Your Needs

We sometimes get emails from meal plan subscribers who are either experiencing fatigue and/or hunger. We also get emails from people on the meal plan who aren't losing weight as quickly as they'd like on the plan. My first questions to both of these kinds of people are: -How big of a person are you? -How active are you? -And are you tweaking the meal plan to fit your personal needs at all? Are You Eating Enough, Too Much, Or … Continue reading

That's It Fruit Bar

Product Review: That’s It Fruit Bars

Have you guys heard of That's It Fruit Bars yet? I was lucky enough to try these tasty treats and I wanted to let you know about this new Paleo snack food. They're bars that are made entirely of dried fruit - that's it - hence the name... It's no accident that I used the word "treats" in the last paragraph to describe these bars. They are sweet and pretty high in carbs, especially sugar, just like you'd expect any … Continue reading

Nell is a highly successful endurance athlete, having placed 1st, 2nd, or 3rd several times in her age group in Ironman races around the country.

She does Paleo lifestyle coaching with clients around the … Continue reading

3 Brazen Lies the Food Industry Would Like You to Believe

Is there an evil conspiracy going on? Perhaps not. Perhaps the evil is merely a product of creeping greed — avarice that has crept into the food and chemical industries and into government as a natural consequence of opportunity and disregard for consequences. Would those industries and their friends in government attempt to suggest that the Paleo diet was merely a fad? Would greed be a powerful enough motivation? It's possible. Here are three lies the food industry would like … Continue reading
