I have been using sensodyne toothpaste and not eating celery and apples, this seems to be helping quite a fair bit, and cutting down from eating steak everyday, and limiting the nuts. Although now, I starve because I used to snack on apples!!!

I may in fact have to see the orthodontist and see if its something to do with the plate, its an annoyance, but now when I start to feel the pain coming through I stop eating and this helps immensely. I know one thing is for sure I will never get fat now hahaah lol.

I had some chicken stir fry tonight and it was great no pain my fellow brethren.

I live in Australia too, I get the seafood cocktail masterfoods one I believe it is orange. But eating meat by itself without any condiments is not very satisfying for my taste buds.

And what about the teeth adjusting to the paleo diet, eating all the hard foods, I think I'm going to stop buying apples, and nuts - might have to find an alternative because the aches are just too bad, and its not a cyst or gum disease, I wear a plate at night to keep my teeth straight because I used to have braces, and my teeth are always sore and weak - kind of gets annoying after awhile. Today when I sank my teeth half way through the steak the pain almost brought tears to my eyes.

RE paleo 100%:

Is it okay to have soy sauce and garlic in my steak? Or seafood cocktail sauce on my salmon?

I do this frequently, and I do not see myself ever eating either by themselves. Also I notice pain in my teeth from eating nuts and steak on, celery sticks, cucumber on a regular basis, been gargling with whiskey to numb the pain.

And beef jerky and pork rinds is okay as well apparently?

Panceaks hmmm, sorry what, oh yes the paleo diet is the awesome!

WLdfg as usual giving informative replies and advice, all that I can add is it will be a little bit of a sting the initial transition, as for me it was bread, I craved it for a few weeks, now this may go against the grain so to speak but, cut it down slowly from minimal to none rather like me, used to eating a loaf of bread a day then eating salad for a substitute, lol.

RE: Losing weight, it's not about if you can run 100 miles a week, or being able to box for 5 minutes without being short of breath, the key is patience, determination, and motivation.

Another thing that can aggravate my acne, is x country running - I think it's better to limit it to quick easy sprints at the park or down the street HIIT, rather then anaerobic unless you are 25 and acne is only a bitter memory.

Well, pre-paleo I was eating relatively healthy, (according to the general population) maybe not to the paleo brotherhood. I would eat a footlong subway everyday with every salad, no cheese, and either turkey, chicken or ham. I have been drinking water and green tea for probably about 9 months or so now, way before the paleo diet. I would always eat apples and the occasional banana, pears, peaches.

I had steak, and fish maybe once a week pre paleo, vegetables not so much, maybe a celery stick a week and 2 nights of vegies. I would eat baked beans and eggs on toast for most breakfast's and yes a bowl of cereal, special K with sliced banana.

I ate a lot of bread pre paleo, in all sandwhiches etc.

You could probably say me transitioning into the paleo didn't have any initial adverse affects because my body already had somewhat a few nutrients immune in my blood and other except I was craving bread like a crack fiend. Pre - paleo I never ate mcdonalds, kfc, pizza etc. I have had greasy food twice in the last year, I see nothing good of it, everytime I eat it my stomach feels like it's going to explode, but I have a sweet tooth for cookies and chocolate which I think has been mentioned several times in previous posts.

Now the difference I feel on paleo and non paleo - I feel way better, my stomach has shrunk enormously because the bread made me look like I had a beer belly when I didn't even drink beer. Now I look somewhat like a real caveman and its an awesome feeling, I could almost be put in a prison now and say I have been locked up for months mayhaps should grow a beard. So yes I'm glad and I would endorse this diet to anyone who is thinking about it.

Also one last thing, I notice there is a lot of guests who view these pages and such, and I would recommend them to join this prestigious forum as I have and get advice from the people who have been doing this **** for years.

Cheers brudda, much appreciated, I will assess all these new workout regimes tomorrow (I'm resting today), and see how I go for a week or so, then hit you up with some feedback and if I'm confuzzled I won't hesitate to ask.

Last thing though, what about abs? and I usually after a workout do as many handstands I can to push my muscle even further until I fall on my head, I guess I should stop this now lol.

Wait, try not to talk in fitness lingo, I am quite illiterate when it comes to that.

So basically you are saying, correct me if I'm wrong, I do 5 sets of 5 repetitions, and the first 2 sets are to warm up, and the last 3 is building the muscle, am I right?

I don't see tricep or bicep exercises in here, and most words which describe a particular workout I have no clue what they are, are these exercises mainly for the chest and legs?

Thanks in advance.

Damn I had half a block of Jamaican dark chocolate, I cannot handle sweet foods anymore they make me sick, feel like I'ma throw up!

Also I had steak and eggs with vegies again tonight, much like last night, and the night before, I think I'm getting sick of all that red meat, I may just eat some fish and turkey for a week, couldn't bear the sigh of seeing another rump steak.

Atlantic salmon is the best fish of all time!

Ahhh, no wonder why I always feel fatigued, when I was running today I could barely move, it's like I was dead inside, and definitely after the gym I felt like I have been zapped from all my energy.

My old regime was much better which was basically every muscle every 2 days and repeat, I had a lot more energy. Thanks for the reply wldgf, I had no idea pushing until failure was a bad thing. My mate who is doing sport science at college was telling me all this stuff, and saying its the best workout regime and all that. But I believe your word would be more credible because you look like a tank and my other mate is a rake and probably is 135 pounds.

Anyway I'll calm down abit at the gym, especially rest more, my body today has just been burnt out and I feel weak and like shit.

The physique maybe, but the diet seems obsessive to the normal people of this world. Everybody I talk to about it, thinks I'm trippin on acid and that cereal grains is the best thing that happened to man kind, and tell me my bones and teeth will rot because I'm not consuming enough dairy. You simply cannot argue with these people.

I commend you for being able to count all those calories and weigh up everything you eat, I simply cannot do that. Now, with coconut oil, isn't that filled with fats? I used canola oil, and I think cordain endorses this. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Acne is a big issue for most of us teens, I am somewhat lucky as genetics is sort of in my favor in a small way. I never have had acne acne, but I definitely do get pimples every now and then, mainly on the jawline though, I think its mainly from shaving.

About 3 months ago, I had ALOT of pimples, pretty big ones to, and I have one scar on my jawline because I popped it like 5 times! Now I have next to none, and a little skin pigmentation from the previous flare ups, but its barely noticeable. Now I will give a secret that works, it's not proactive, it's not roccacutane or benozoyl peroxied (left a mark on my upper cheek from using that shit). It is simply, using your own urine, now this may seem primitive and very odd I mention this, and the first time I did this I was very hesitant, and thought it was some sort of inside joke. But this really works!!!!!

You will notice in a week half of your acne and inflammation is gone, NO JOKE, and make sure you drink plenty of water and eat the paleo foods. If you eat greasy foods it will be in the urine thereby making it worse. But with the paleo diet by eating greens, vegies, salads, fish, meat, the urine is rich in nutrients and is a very good cleansing agent. Don't worry peeps I was going to relate this back to the paleo diet haha.

Once the acne has calmed down use a little bit of lemon juice squeeze on your face to bleach the scars which blends in your face, oh and for shaving get QV wash or something at the chemist do not buy the local grocery shaving cream. You can thank me now :D

Basically all the wieghts I do is till fail, like my face is red and my arms are shaking, and that's when I stop. Cheers for any feedback, much appreciated.

Apologize for any inaccuracies, you probably won't be able to give me an approximate answer as I don't really measure how much weight I do, I just do the heaviest and till fail. Some dumbell weights I do remember so I have listed as much as I can.
