I really like the workouts from this website:

Requires minimum/no equipment and requires little time, but gasses me out without fail. Plus, it has a really supportive online community from all around the world :)

Are you from out that way?

I'm studying (in school) in Waterloo, but I live in Toronto :) I've met up with another paleo there a few times - let us know when you're in town!

Aggghhh stomach flu for the past few days :( Spent Tuesday night shivering with fever and puking/dry-heaving into a toilet.

Ate nothing yesterday, as I was still fevering. Right before I went to bed for the night, I broke down and took a Panadol (have you heard of it? Got it from Hong Kong - amazing stuff; knocked me out for 10 hours. Woke up in the same position I went to bed in, no joke).

I'm feeling much, much better today. The fever broke, and I haven't been able to eat much, but I ate some congee (chinese rice porridge) made with chicken broth and kept it down. It seems to be the only thing that settles my cramping stomach. The thought of meat/fat makes my stomach turn. :(

Anyways, that's my update for now. Can't afford to be sick for too long - in the midst of of midterms and assignments galore!

I think the SAD society's expectation about men's horniness level waning with age is absolutely WRONG.  We men are just healthy.  And healthy men are horny.

Ditto for women!

Decided to pack away my scale for a while; the over-achieving side of me tends to obsess about something until I go insane. I'm determined to make this about improving my health and fitness, as opposed to achieving the lowest number possible.

And thanks JayJay - I'll keep that in mind. I figured the rapid weight loss can't continue forever.

Thanks Folks! To update again, My girlfriend and I broke up and I know a whole lot had to deal with the fact I refused wheat and whole grains and she won't let go how bad that was for me to do. Her loss.

In more positive news a cousin of mine was told to go Gluten free by his doctor. I just sent him a copy of "The Wheat Belly" to start him off slowly and maybe eventually get him more Paleo after going Wheat Free it's not too hard to go Paleo. It was very cool to talk about a diet and have someone who didn't think I was crazy. I'm also excited to see how much it changes his life.

I'm sorry that eating habits and diet got in the way of your relationship :( I agree with Jean that you're probably better off with somebody else, but still, it must have sucked. Onwards and upwards!

Yes, but how many men are turned on by the idea of a cavewoman?

Perhaps I am over-thinking men really care what women eat? From what I can see of my fellow 20-somethings, maybe not.

Nope, not really. 

Hmm, off to confirm this hypothesis with experimentation this Friday :)

I take it many in Eugene smoke and get drunk and partake in religion?

University of Oregon.  I just equate college towns with young adults eating granola with soy milk.

This. Except it's University of Waterloo, and my date on Friday is with a "vegetarian who occasionally cheats with bacon".

Don't ask me why; we were set up by mutual, overzealous friends.

What did you eat on Sunday? Food poisoning? Bad meat? Stomach virus?

I'd say see a doctor tomorrow, but in the meantime, maybe some warm chicken/beef broth would help with the hunger.

Bottom line - don't change yourself for someone you're dating.  If they don't like the person you are now, then what's the point?


This is among the best advice ever posted here and it goes far beyond what to eat for dinner.  Too bad I can't give +10.

True, true, CCG and Paleo Dude. I never even considered changing what I'm doing for someone I'm dating - partially because I'm not looking for anything too serious right now, but even if I were, I would still eat how I want to eat.

Comments from male friends and family, or female friends and family?  I'd think most men would respect a woman who had no problem eating steak and such.

Comments from female friends and family, I suppose.

As a man I find that a lot of the women I date are turned on by the idea of a caveman.... a couple even converted (both were veggies!)

Now if you are like me and eat raw bloody meat like a vampire, dating would be hard.

Wow, true - how do you to it then? I mean, what do you do for dates?

Question for all the single cavemen and cavewomen out there: how do you date?

Although I haven't been doing paleo for that long, the thought of dating now that I am doing this freaks me out. I get enough comments about "all the fatty meat I'm eating" from my friends and family; I worry about how it looks to a guy on a first date.

So, do you not worry about it and just eat, damn the judgments? Or do you "hide the crazy" and eat before your date?

P.S. A friend of mine suggested that the only solution is to date another paleo. She said someone should make a paleo dating website - "" LOL

Yes listen to your body. Rest is important to recover from intense workouts. Are you not eating from 10Am till 5PM or was that an error?

Well, I have breakfast/lunch at 10am, and I finish eating at around 10:30am. I won't eat until dinner at around 5pm or 5:30pm. They are good, full meals though.

I rested yesterday, and had lots of fatty beef and lamb for dinner. Felt so good after eating it :) Feel much better today - less sore, more energetic, etc.
