A lot of us tend to be type A’s, paleo people are not immune to this! And, it’s not all bad; I mean we type A’s are driven to achieve, and this can be quite useful. I can’t even imagine not wanting to exercise, but then I h...

You don’t want The Whole Fat. You Can’t Handle the Whole Fat.
How about zero fear of any whole-food fat, plant or animal; but the rule is, you can only cook the meal with the fat in the food that's in the meal and on the plate?

I gained then my metabolism picked up a it all fell off again. I'm gaining again now because I'm eating a surplus for weight training. The thing I noticed was it was last winter when I added more carbs & my body ran real hot. I was hot in bed during winter when I was usually cold when I was low carb. My bf% now is about 16-18% so I'm going to cut soon

Clear, excellent points... My target is less than 20 percent of calories.
 
How Low Carb is Low Carb?

How few carbs are there in a low-carb diet? It depends. It depends on what you’re trying to achieve.

Generally speaking the fewer carbs the more effective. Faster weight loss without hunger. More rapid and powerful reversal of type 2 diabetes. But also more restrictive and possibly more challenging.

Some people need to eat very few carbs for a maximum effect – a strict low-carb diet. This includes many people with big weight issues, diabetes (mainly type 2) and food or sugar addiction, for example.

Others – less carb intolerant people – do great on a more liberal low-carb diet. This also minimizes the risk of any side effects.

A third group of healthy, lean, active people may not even need to eat low carb at all, as long as they mainly eat unprocessed slow carbs.

See the specific examples of the three levels of low carb diet at http://www.dietdoctor.com/how-low-carb-is-low-carb.
How to chose Note LCHF means low carb, high fat. It’s the only way to successfully do a low-carb diet long term.

The present-day spike in carbohydrate intake is nearly invisible relative to span of human history. The grain-based high carb diet with heat processed vegetable oils that the USDA promotes as "heart-healthy" is, in fact, very unhealthy. Relatively, it's an extreme diet.
If the history of mankind were represented by a distance of 100 meters, the last 100 years would be within the final four millimeters. Our first 1.5 million years of human diet history is not repre…

If you're thinking about getting a fitness tracker, Google Fit is a free and easy way to have a go
About 40% of those surveyed said they use a fitness tracker (16% with a specific device like a Fitbit or running watch and 25% using just their phone). Another 25% confessed that they're thinking about it. While activity tracking could just be a flash-in-the-pan trend,  there's little doubt that logging steps, distance energy burned and everything else technology allows has definitely gone mainstream. If you're thinking about tracking your physical activity, Google Fit is an excellent app that is simple, available everywhere regardless of what device you have and entirely free. Here are the main reasons you should give it a try.

If there's one piece of technology that has really exploded in popularity in recent years, it has to be fitness trackers. As recent as 3 years ago wearing devices around your wrist, clipped to your clothing was a niche market...

The problem I found with Google fit is it doesn't work without being connected Ted to the other ship.

How are we going with New Year's Resolutions?. I understand why many think they're silly, and in terms of arbitrary short-term goals, they are. But a resolution is a self-improvement which has no calendar affiliation. It's not so much about "losing 10 lbs this year" but becoming healthier. The short-term measurable goals may help guide the grander long-term change, but it may help to ease the pressure, and increase the significance to frame resolutions as permanent improvements rather than goals you'll reach this year, which implies their only temporary and therefore less important.

It's easy to finish the year incredibly determined to start the next one off on the right foot. January is the busiest month for gym memberships. It shouldn’t be surprising that when it comes to New Year’s Resolutions, those ...

In my latest article on the blog I take a look at the benefits of including gelatin in your Paleo diet. Great for your skin and essential for gut health.

Making beer or making cheese, even making sausages: sometimes these can become all-afternoon or all-day events. But dry-curing whole muscles? I am continually blown away by how easy this is to do. And we add a coppa to the cave.

Any other key points to add? How did I do with writing up a simple myth buster type of article about paleo and primal living? It's mostly based on the conversations I find myself in around real, non internet life.

+Terry Newton​ I'd love your two cents ☺💪✌

Coffee: yay or nay?

Flavoured, sweetened drinks don't happen often, but I love a good latte with fresh full cream jersey cow milk.
What constitutes as healthy, especially in terms of food can be a complex question to ask. It seems that for many foods, there are just as many people professing health benefits as there are proclaiming they'll lead to cancer...

With December literally on the doorstop the festive season is well and truly upon us and that can only mean one thing; Christmas parties! Alcohol has always been a bit of grey area in the Paleo lifestyle so we have taken a look at how you can enjoy a drink or two (or three!) within the parameters of your Paleo principles during the party season.
