Contest: The Best and The Worst

The Prize:

Vital Omegas. Fantastic fish fat. They’re good for you. You know you need them. Win this contest and you’ll get three, count it three, bottles of omega 3s.

The Contest:

Primal is sunshine and walks on the beach and filet mignons and lobster. But it is also toe bruises and no more donuts and unresolved arguments with vegan friends. Inspired by Tim Conrad’s meet and greet forum thread, in the comments section below, tell people what, in your experience, is the best part of living Primal and what is the worst part of living Primal.

Here are a few examples:

Best: The looks I get from people checking out my newly toned body.

Worst: The looks I get from people checking out my weird Vibrams.

Best: My IBS has all but disappeared since going Primal.

Worst: On the few occasions when I indulge in grains, I can feel the negative effects more than ever.

Best: More bacon

Worst: Fewer tacos

Remember folks, brevity is the soul of wit, or something thereabouts. One winner will be selected at random.

The Deadline:

Midnight, tonight. It’s gonna happen!

Who is Eligible:

This one is only available to residents of Guam. If you live outside Guam, you can still win this prize, but you will be given a frown of disapproval for entering a contest you clearly know only to be open to residents of Guam.

You want comments? We got comments:

Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.

  1. BEST: My hunger feeling satisfied for long periods of time.
    WORST: Having to floss much more because of the meat stuck between my teeth.

  2. Best: It makes me COOK real food instead of randomly falling back on “lets just go get a pizza”

    Worst: Less Pizza! (probably my favorite food ever!) and trying to discuss lectins, types of fats and the anti-nutrients of grain with my father and sister.

  3. Best: I can eat all the fried food I want! (with nut “breading”)

    Worst: I have to cook to meals every night- one primal, one with potatoes, pasta, or rice.

  4. Best: Living to 100+

    Worst: Putting more money into my pension to live until 100+

  5. Best: I’m tackling the symptoms of my hormone imbalance, head-on and drug-free!

    Worst: Everyone’s calling me Wilma Flintstone…
