    Do you take probiotics? You can get dairy free ones. I don't know how long it takes to fix a gut, everyone is different. But it is not cured overnight. Also try fermented foods as they have...

    Magnesium. If you can't get enough in your food, take a supplement at night before you go to bed.

    I don't mind eating "dinner" food in the morning, it is just the time factor that that gets me. Which is why I like the idea of leftovers.

    I like eggs but I do get sick of them if I am faced with...

    Thanks for the suggestions. I like the idea of left-overs. I might start cooking more at night and deliberately saving some for breakfast (usually everything that is cooked for dinner gets eaten!)....

    Quick and easy breakfast ideas please

    This question has probably been asked many times before, but I need some help. I am trying to go primal but my biggest problem is breakfast. I have made some nice omelettes and occasionally cooked...

    Why don't you buy snack food while you are there? That way you will be supporting their local economy while you are at it. I'm sure there will be Primal type snack food you can buy.

    You cannot possibly have gained 8 pounds of fat in one day, it is not possible. It will be a water gain and spicy food like Indian is well known to make you retain fluid. Also most people gain...

    This depends on where you live though. If I want banana, then they won't be local! BTW, unless you plan on eating the skins I really don't think if matters too much whether bananas are organic or...
