    For those having digestion issues (including myself), is it possible that the oil is having a laxative effect, which is leading to the weight-loss? I don't want to continue with this if it's...

    I get so frustrated about sugar in everything too. I got a jar of roasted red peppers from Trader Joe's only to find it had sugar as an ingredient. I did find dried blueberries at my local health...

    Thanks for the feedback! I am going to try to add in more healthy carbs. I'm thinking I may be getting more cravings due to the increased exercise. Trekfan, I like your advice of not letting one...

    The nice thing is that it keeps for a really long time. I think the expiration date on a new jar is a couple of years out. So you could use half the jar now and use the rest next year!
  5. Lacking motivation to eat right AND exercise

    I am finding that over the past two years since I've been introduced to the primal life, that I either focus on eating properly OR focus on exercising, but have difficulty doing BOTH. So, I'll spend...

    I sprint fasted, as well. I usually sprint on the weekend, so I sleep in late and head to the high school track around noon. I don't find that it hinders my performance at all. As Knifegill said,...

    You mentioned that your husband has similar sleep issues. My husband and I had the same issue, where one of us was restless and woke the other up throughout the night. Our solution: separate...

    I'm also in the Northeast and I try to do my walking at noon, when it's warmer. I eat at my desk, then walk during my one-hour lunch break. Some days are tough, but I go to the park and focus on...

    I noticed my post-nasal drip issue disappeared when I stopped drinking milk. I still eat cheese, yogurt, kefir, and heavy cream, but those don't seem to bother me. Once in awhile I'll get a latte...

    Fresh air and walking always help me when I'm feeling down. The people who said "Fake it till you make it" are right! When you are feeling blah, try smiling. Seriously! Not sure all the science...

    To reduce this research down to "a mostly vegan diet" is absurd. Please re-read the article and focus on the conclusions that might be out of the scope of your own lifestyle. Beyond the fact that...

    On Day 6 and trucking along. Feeling good for the most part, except for yesterday my stomach was not agreeing with me at all. I think I might have upped the vegetables too fast, and my body is not...

    I have more success choosing primal-friendly takeout at my local Thai restaurant, rather than Chinese (although I love me some Chinese!). Tom Kha Gai is coconut milk-based soup that is my go-to. ...

    I worked in a mall a few years ago and learned about the mall walking community. It was kind of fascinating! When I would open the bookstore I worked at 9:00 am, the walkers would be just finishing...

    Thank you for starting this thread. I needed a re-committment to paleo/primal eating, and a Whole30 sounds perfect. This summer, I seriously fell off the wagon, and was back to eating ice cream and...

    I make variations on this for dessert all the time. I like using Sunbutter, as it tastes so close to peanut butter, and also adding 100% cocoa powder. I usually do honey as sweetener, and sometimes...

    Could the itchy legs be an allergy to a skin care product? Body wash/shaving cream/soap? Many have sulfates in them. Although I am confused about the difference between sulfites and sulfates.

    Yes, the Fage full-fat version is called FAGE Total Greek Yogurt (google it!). It is so delicious. They carry it at my local Whole Foods, but that's the only place I've found it. People have...

    Just wanted to say sorry about your unemployment. I was there for 10 months, and it was really difficult financially and emotionally. The silver lining, though, is that you have much more time to...

    Eliminating milk fixed my constant (and gross) post-nasal drip issues. I used to drink at least 2 glasses a day, in my pre-primal/paleo days. I still eat butter, heavy cream, and occasional kefir...
