Miscellaneous / Your oddest side effects on paleo?
« on: September 20, 2010, 06:20:19 PM »
Besides better health, what are some weird side effects you've noticed? Things you wouldn't expect...-I can't chew gum for more than 5 minutes. Used to chew for hours on end.- On low-carb and paleo, my breasts get bigger. I lost 50 lbs a few years ago and they stayed the same size. Hormones, maybe?- I'm hot all the time. - My hair looks greasy in the morning. It's gross.

Diet and nutrition / Gaining fat
« on: September 20, 2010, 12:54:25 PM »
My boyfriend is slowly coming around - has HFCS out of his diet  when he can - and wants to go paleo soon. He has a problem gaining fat. (Muscle gain okay for him.) His BF is under 2%. He also needs a nice fat layer as a buffer when he starts an absolutely necessary medical  regimen soon, during which he'll probably lose 20 pounds. He's 6'3" and about 170 lbs.Does anyone have experience with this?I was thinking meat, veg, and a tuber and milk at every meal, with lots of nuts daily and good chocolate a few times a week.(I just want him off grains and non-fruit sugar, really.)Any fat-gaining tips?

Workout Journals / Chelle's Shameful Workout Log
« on: September 07, 2010, 07:56:05 PM »
The point of my keeping a workout journal is to voluntarily subject myself to group shaming.I'm healthy, and need to feel embarassed about my laziness. Today's workout: slow stroll to library and back, total 6/10 of a mile.

Introductions / New gal in West Virginia
« on: September 07, 2010, 07:05:39 PM »
Hello all. Fairly new to this WOE, but I've been a low carber off and on since about 2004.I'm finishing up the non-paleo food left in my house (just cheese and green beans at this point) and have decided that life's too short not to eat butter or mayo. I've lost a pound or two in the last week, and of course my energy level and moods are fantastic.
