Success for A Paleo Plan Subscriber

We recently did an interview with Nina, a Paleo eater and Paleo Plan meal plan subscriber to see how the plan is working for her and how Paleo has changed her life.   PP: How long have you been following Paleo? Nina: I started a strictly Paleo diet May 5th, 2012 and actually signed up for the paleoplan.com that same week I believe.   PP: Why did you join Paleo Plan? Nina: I had been having intestinal pain, bloating, gas and I wasn't … Continue reading

Paleo Plan Weekly Nutrition Breakdown

Alright, here it is! The nutritional breakdown for an entire typical week on Paleo Plan, including calories, carbs, fat and protein. A couple things to note.

CrossFit and Paleo: An Expert’s View

I'm happy to introduce you all to our guest blogger today, Max Shippee, who runs CrossFit HAX in suburban Los Angeles. He knows way more about CrossFit than I ever will, and I thought you CrossFitters deserved some words of wisdom about how Paleo can affect your performance. Check out the video below for a better understanding of who this guy is: funny, tough, sadistic, but sweet... Watch for another post by Max this week on the practical implementation of … Continue reading


Q&A: Saturated Fat, Dairy, Breakfast, Salt

I have to say I miss writing on the blog every couple of days, but I'm happy to announce that we're in the process of writing The Complete Idiot's Guide to the Paleolithic Diet right now, so I'm a bit busy! In about a month, blogging will commence as usual. In the meantime, here's a great set of questions (with answers) I thought a lot of you would appreciate. Dear Paleo Plan, Are chicharrons (fried pig skins) acceptable for the … 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

Question mark

Reader Questions Answered

We received a couple great questions recently - one on the role of nuts in the Paleo diet, and Paleo Plan in particular.  The other is yet another continuation of our story of Barb, but it's on the importance of breakfast for weight loss.  Read on! Here's the first one on nuts. I noticed in the menu that there is a decent amount of nut products used. I, however, just read an article regarding the anti-nutritive properties of nuts and … Continue reading

Fatigue and Belly Fat, Continued

After my last post, Q&A: Fatigue and That Pesky Belly Fat, I received a message from the member who originally wrote in with the question. I know there are a lot of people out there just like her, a middle aged woman struggling with her weight and her thyroid, so I thought I'd post our correspondence for you all. She answered some of my questions from the post, and gave us more details about her situation. Dear Neely, Thank you … 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


Paleo for the Active Person

I talked to a guy recently who told me he'd tried eating Paleo and failed. At first I thought, "He just can't resist the temptation of donuts for breakfast and bread for lunch." And then I let him plead his case, and it went something like this: when he gave Paleo a shot, he found he didn't have the energy he needed throughout the day. He was super tired, lethargic and couldn't get through his workouts. I'm sometimes too quick … Continue reading

The Importance of Cheating

I've been searching for a while for just the right scholarly study to demonstrate to you that too much deprivation in your diet will only lead to binge eating later.  I can't find a good one.  Then it dawned on me that I probably don't need to prove that to you since most of us are probably case studies of this very point.  We can all attest to the fact that when we feel deprived of something, we go after … Continue reading
