  1. Has anyone else experienced changes with menstrual cycle? I have endometriosis and this causes me a fair amount of pain and discomfort (hysterectomy may happen). Yesterday I started my cycle without warning and due to the medical interventions I have in place for endometriosis I'm not due for at least another two months or more. As yet no positive effects in reduction of pain etc, but I'm not bloated which is nice. Has anyone else had changes?

The first time I changed my diet (not paleo at the time - insulin resistance diet), my period started 3 days later and I didn't have a fractio

  6. I would go to Costa Rica (we've been trying to plan a trip there for ages). We'd rent a house on the beach, close enough to town that we could hit the market for fresh produce and fish. Our house would have an awesome kitchen, where we'd cook all of our own food... but we'd also have daily cleaning service, so we never had to clean up after ourselves. Fresh fish and seafood, mango salsa (we'd go during mango season, of course), fruit smoothies (because when you're on vacation, it's okay to go a little crazy), and tons and tons of fresh salads, because when I'm south of the border, I'm always
