Can't speak for everyone, but I'll tell you why I'm not posting much... it's all too easy! I don't get carried away with the details (Ug wouldn't have; although I don't want to take anything away from those that do - this is an interesting scientific subject like any other). Plus, unlike vegetarianism, this way of eating just works. No ifs, no buts, just get on with it and your life changes for the better. What's to discuss? :)

I used to be a vegetarian and it is really easy to be carried away in all the drama on the Internet -- for one thing, vegetarians bicker amongst themselves as to who is a "real" vegetarian and who isn't -- many say only avoiding meat doesn't make you a true vegetarian (there are animal products found in many foods that are not identified as meat, for example)... and then there are the vegetarians who just eat fish... people who say they are vegetarians but still occasionally eat meat... it goes on and on.

And don't get me started on the vegans, the raw foodists -- oi! It's enough to make your head hurt.

I guess there's not a lot to discuss because there's really not much to argue about here.

I've also turned off account registration for a while due to being bombarded with spam!

I joined about a year ago and I'm still eating paleo and have already met all my goals. I guess I just ran out of things to say about it. I have been writing a weekly blog about my paleo diet experience (www.garyrea.blogspot.com), but I even discontinued making entries in that because it was getting boring just reporting my normal health every week and I didn't think anyone was reading it anymore, either. There used to be more activity here, but it has fallen off a bit. I have an RSS link to it and check it every now and then, though.

Hi.

When I joined I thought this was a much more active forum and maybe it was more active in the past?  This is the most popular dedicated paleo forum, and it seems like the vegetarians are winning when comparing with forum activity  ;D... Maybe not that many people are eating this way?

just a thought.

lets get posting

For me I've been taking some classes that take up much of my time.  I was active almost everyday about a year ago.

As for the vegetarians:  They have a much more active forum because they need a lot more support and hand holding because their WOE just does not work!

When you first go veggie, at about the 3rd or 4th day you start to feel great. Almost like you could fly!  I don't know what causes that feeling but it quickly goes away and by week 9 or 10 you feel like crap!  Then you spend the next 12 years trying to get back that feeling you had that first week.  You fret about things like having that slice of pumpkin pie at Aunt Martha's house (3 weeks ago).

With Paleo you may not instantly feel great, and by day 3 or 4 you might not feel so good (depending on how low on carbs you go of course). But with Paleo when you do start to feel better it generally lasts.  As a paleo eater you might have that slice of pie and even some mashed potatos on Thanksgiving Day and know that friday will be another day and you won't still be fretting about it 3 weeks from now.
