How to Lose Weight on a Paleo Diet

  Paleo diets have been popular for a number of decades now, although if you really want to be pedantic, you could say that paleo diets have been popular for millions of years, but we won’t complicate things. Paleo diets are basically dietary changes which require followers of the diet to consume foods very similar to those that cavemen used to consume back in the Palaeolithic Era, as the idea is to nourish the body with natural foods that human beings have been consuming for millions of years, as opposed to processed foods which we have only had access to for around 10,000 years. While the main benefit of the diet is that it helps to prevent allergies, food intolerance,...

Generally, when we envisage ourselves eating...

For the Love of Popcorn!

Movies and popcorn. Practically as synonymous as peanut butter and jelly or salt and pepper.  Most of us rarely partake in one without the other. It's a thing.  Popcorn alone is a pretty healthy snack - fiber rich with a ton of "bang for your buck." Think about it. From one little handful of kernels comes a big bowl of all-natural snack food that's light and airy and satisfying.  But movie theater popcorn WITH the extra butter - well, we've all heard the horror stories there. That a large bucket contains the same amount of fat as 4 Quarter Pounders (with cheese). That it's more than your daily recommended caloric intake (before the accompanying large soda). That it's full of...
