    It sounds as though you got something other than pure fat mixed in there. :( I'm always really careful to first let it sit for a bit so I'm sure the fat has completely separated from everything...

    I take 5000 IU daily if I won't be out in the sun at all, and try to scale it back to what I think is reasonable if I'll be out part/all of the day. And don't forget the K2. Look for a brand that...

    Are you getting enough folate? It's a hard nutrient to get enough of, and it's critical because your body cannot synthesize melatonin from seretonin without folate. I only discovered this by...

    Oh my gosh, I feel for you! It's not easy. I had all these ideas of what I would eat when I was pregnant, all these nutrient-dense foods, and my body had different ideas (at least until about week...

    No ... I thought the same for yogurt and cheese but found out that you should actually use the freshest possible milk to make it. :-(

    I've tried the liverwurst and have a couple of the others in my freezer to try after I finish the liverwurst off. I'm not usually picky but did find the flavor to be a bit strong/off-putting on its...

    Glad to know I'm not the only one! I'm not counting calories either, but I know I'm not eating a crazy large amount of food -- I would say right around what I ate before I got pregnant. Just good...

    I just had a baby 4 weeks ago and am breastfeeding her. I gained 30 lbs while pregnant and lost 12 immediately when she was born (she was small, less than 7 lbs). Then I lost another 3 within the...

    I was thinking a donkey because they're so cheap, but I've heard that llamas work well at fending off coyotes too. We're in Georgia and the previous owner of the property said that there are...

    This is my first pregnancy and I'm currently at 23 weeks. My advice for anyone TTC is to really boost your superfood intake BEFORE you get pregnant, because eating primal is no guarantee that you'll...

    This is complete nonsense. Frame size makes a HUGE difference. Lean body mass can vary greatly, even for women who are all the same height. There are several ways you can measure it at home to get...

    Wow, cool, thanks for all the advice everyone! I think I'll cross cows and pigs off my list for right now, at least until I get my feet a little wet (or muddy! ha ha).

    I'm thinking I could...
  13. Raising your own animals ... any backyard farmers out there??

    I just sold my big suburban home for a little house in the country on 6.5 acres. It was owned by a little old lady who used to raise horses on the property, but the pastures were taken over by weeds...

    I don't have a problem with the idea of pooling resources to cover the unexpected, like a cancer diagnosis or a car wreck. In fact I think it's a good thing to not block people based on a...

    That is so funny that the only foods you could eat were the same as for me -- dairy, fruit and rice. I really do think our bodies must be trying to tell us something when they "ban" the meat from...

    I had really hoped that a primal diet would help me avoid morning sickness, but alas it was not the case. I was nauseated from about weeks 6-11. The only things I could reliably keep down were...

    I'm 20 weeks along now. I too was not too interested in meat for the first 3 months, and eggs made me puke within minutes of eating them. I'm happy to say that these aversions disappeared by around...

    It's worth it if you're at a point in your life when you're ready to settle down, and won't resent the freedoms you give up to make it work. And of course if you have found the right other half,...

    I have a chest freezer and absolutely LOVE it. I don't know what I ever did without it. The extra storage allows me to buy 1/2 hog or 1/4 cow at a time. Also, a chest freezer does not have a...

    I was aiming for 50-75, but sometimes ending up closer to 100. And I was also going for 1200-1500 calories. It got to be sooo tedious to track it all, and honestly I was not getting good results. ...

    I LOVE bacon grease for throwing into my cast-iron skillet before I cook up some scrambled eggs ... or saute some veggies ... or sear some meat. But yeah, I was kinda iffy about the quality of fat...

    Switching from the SAD to a pretty low-carb version of primal was great for about a month, but then I plunged into a horrible bout of insomnia. For weeks on end I'd average maybe 3 hrs/night. Over...

    I cut wheat (and all the other non-paleo-approved foods) out for months when I decided to change my diet. At first I didn't notice any real difference in not eating wheat. Then I ate some by...

    I love Love LOVE beef short ribs. Truly one of my very favorite cuts! I make them the same way every time, and they come out amazingly mouth-watering and tender.
