Yeah I have had Acid Reflux since I as pregnant with my daughter and when I started taking allergy pills it got worse... so they put me on it... I thought last night.. well my allergies are better to the point where I don't really need the pills anymore (not sure if it's the diet or the acupuncture) so why not just try it and WALLA.... NOT REFLUX!

So, I'm going to work on figuring out a Primal workout schedule today and start a support thread for it. Any ideas or suggestions before I do?

Everybody doing OK over here?

It's a JUDDD up day and I decided to take a Primal 20% day and ate a few things... everything bagel, regular yogurt, and half a tuna sandwich on white bread. That's it, I'm done. Got it out of my system. Grilled chicken and zucchini for dinner.

Well, I'm having a rough patch right now diet-wise, so I haven't been altogether hard core. I'm about 50/50 right now. Will be getting back to business next week.

Just thought I'd share a couple of Cookbook Ebooks I found. I didn't end up choosing to go fully Paleo, I really personally like Atkins, but these had some great recipes. I purchased the first two, but the other ones looked interesting!

Paleo Cookbooks - Complete Paleo Recipe Guide To Healthy Eating

Paleo Recipe Book - Brand New Paleo Cookbook

Paleo Cookbooks For Gluten-free Living

Paleo Diet Smoothies Recipe Book

Dark chocolate gives me joint pain!

Hi , I have finally reduced significantly my joint pain by eliminating dark chocolate!
After many experiments, and research I figured "for me" that it was the dark chocolate!
Apparently the liquer in dark chocolate causes arthritis symptoms I researched....so I tried eliminating it, and it worked.
Worse yet, if I cheat, it takes a whole week to get it out of my system!
So for my chocolate cravings, I use cocoa butter and add in my own sweetener.
Can be fabulous in cakes if substituting some or all of the melted butter!
Check it out!

I'm going to give Paleo/primal a try. Started my Whole30 challenge today. But I'm keeping my butter, clarified of course. Clarified a pound last night in fact. Did a whirlwind cleanout of my pantry yesterday. Got my fridge stocked up with tons of veggies. Ate a pork chop and 2 scrambled eggs for breakie; lunch will be stewed chicken breast meat and a green salad; dinner is going to be something with beef sirloin. Giving up the dairy will be the hardest for me, but I can do just about anything for 30 days. Hopefully I can give up dairy altogether, but Primal may be as strict as I get long-term. But going to try the cold-turkey Whole30 challenge to get myself off to a good cleanout and good start.

Whole30 kind of scares me - it seems so militant.

But I agree that "Practical Paleo" is a terrific book! I'm reading it now - it's no small book but rather, I think, a "bible" for the way of life. She's definitely going to be leading the pack in that regard for the "go to" book for this lifestyle.

Good for you B!!!
Last summer we gave up the cheese and dairy. Never really missed it and my budget was glad too. We eat goat cheese and I eat the full-fat Greek yogurt. I use kefir and almond milk in my smoothies and really like experimenting with cashew "cream"- pesto, cilantro, garlic, etc. for meats. Haven't tried it for coffee, mostly use coconut milk for that. That milk mimics cream in soooo many ways. I have to freeze my butter, I use so little. I got some ghee at Cenral Market. Lasts forever. Also gave up the wheat but we do eat gluten free pasta from time to time. I got the Practical Paleo (took to office place and had them ring bind it for me) and have been enjoying as a good read- highlight and sticky notes. I think it's the way that we can always eat without any backsliding-- its been about a year now. I lost about 15, but like you I have some stubborn stuff would like to do 10-15 more but will just keep trucking- we sleep well and have energy. We aren't deprived. DH bought a pint of Bluebell for his birthday, ate half and tossed the rest. Loves that 70% chocolate stuff from Trader Joes. I allow him bolillos for lunch every once in a while, but I, of course, pass on them. No, this WOE is highly doable. Now if I could only get in those 50 squats a day, I'd be in business.

Good luck on the challenge!

Thanks Sooze. I just ordered Practical Paleo and look forward to getting my copy. I've followed the *** blog for probably 2 years now and have toyed with the notion of a Paleo or Primal switch. Just now getting up the nerve to DO it! I spent the morning setting up a new Primal/Paleo category on my website and tried to tag all existing recipes there I think qualify for at least Primal food allowances, if not the purer Paleo. Hopefully that will help my regular Paleo and Primal visitors weed just those recipes out for browsing. Trying to maintain TWO websites would get to be waaaay too much work, I'm sure. At least that's the plan for the moment. May create a separate site one day, but I'll just see how this goes for now. I changed the subheading on the site to reflect the dual focus.

Thanks for the heads up. Love browsing your recipes, taking notes. PP book has really good recipes. Been reading in bed. Most have only 3-4 ingredients. Good recipes for spice blends. Going to work on those this weekend. And you eat more paleo/primal than you realize.

Hello Everyone I am new to Paleo but have strong allergies to dairy and some grains. Stumbled across the paleo way of eating by chance. I'm glad I did. I'm excited. I was on the Atkins WOE prior to this but I went back to eating high carbs. So I've been there and done that and I've decided no more yo-yo dieting and feeling like crap.

No - I try to buy it when I can and I don't stress when I can't. Also, if you live in VA, there may be farms where you can buy directly. Check out eatwild.com - TONS of farms all over VA. Eat Wild - Virginia

I'm jealous!

Hi Meek, well, there may be differences in what other people say, but this is what I've concluded. "Paleo" is a more-or-less generic term for ancestral eating. "Primal" specifically refers to an ancestral eating approach called the Primal Blueprint, which is a program formulated by Mark Sisson. You can read more about it at Mark's Daily Apple online.
Ancestral eating focuses on consuming foods your ancestors would have eaten in the paleolithic (prior to the invention of agriculture 10,000 years ago) and basically nourishing your body with the foods it (your body) was intended to consume. Mark's vision for this, "Primal", tends to allow more dairy products for those of us who can tolerate them, and is an all-around life-style program including exercise and tips on life, not just food.
hth!
