    Started serious attempt to keep primal in May 2010. Had already given up all grains except rice and somewhat restricted carbs before that, but started trying to keep carbs under 50 (best) or at least under 100 grams per day and zero, or near zero refined carbs.

      * Cleaned most simple carbs out of kitchen cabinets, including bulk sugar, rice noodles and mung bean threads.

      * Doing water exercise about 2x per week. Walking dogs about 2x per day. Targets are 3x week for water ex and 4x day for dog walking.

        Haven't weighed yet, but one of my extra chins has shrunk up to a mere bag of wrinkles, and my knees are morphing from fat to knobby. Success!

        Still giving away shelf stable foods with simple carbs and dumping frozen carbiferous items.

          Fitness goals:

          * water exercise, three times per week,

          * dog walking, four short walks per day or 60 minutes total per day.

          Right now, good weeks are two times to the pool and two times per day walks.

          Lifting heavy things is out, it provokes too much back pain. But, in the pool I am working on pushing light things under water.

                Went to Dr today. She is very, very pleased. Amazed to find that she believes GCBC and in animal fat and low carb. She found them via her own path. She likes 100/100/100 for me (100 gr protein, 100 grams fat, and less than 100 grams carbs) although she considers 100 grams of fat high. She agrees with no manufactured foods, processed sugars, starches and no grains, limited nuts. She said somebody has a theory that we should have 15 grams of sugars per day, in three 5 gram servings. I will have to find out where that's from and what that's about.

                Blood lipids,etc will come when I get them, but here are my stats so far:

                  Put all this in a sig when I was all high on it, but it is too big for a regular sig. So, I'm sticking it here. I will resist the urge to post it fifty times.

                          Some citations on the obesity trap

                          “Those tasked with providing health services to obese people may become frustrated with patients when they do not lose weight following counseling and treatment, but the research shows that weight loss is extremely difficult to maintain long term. Obese people are constantly fighting their physiology and the environment. If professionals keep this in mind it may help in not stigmatizing their clients.”

                          "People with obesity also report receiving poorer treatment and stigma from health professionals and are less likely to seek treatment for certain conditions because of a fear of being stigmatized."

                          "http://www.physorg.com/news190641580.html"

                          Researchers found that obese children had higher odds of being bullied no matter their gender, race, family socioeconomic status, school demographic profile, social skills or academic achievement.

                          http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases...0503074251.htm

                          Pay-for-performance reimbursement of surgeons, intended to reward doctors and hospitals for good patient outcomes, may instead be creating financial incentives for discriminating against obese patients, who are much more likely to suffer expensive complications after even the most routine surgeries, according to new Johns Hopkins research.

                          http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases...0502173501.htm

                          in rat models the development of obesity coincides with a progressively deteriorating chemical balance in reward brain circuitries. As these pleasure centers in the brain become less and less responsive, rats quickly develop compulsive overeating habits, consuming larger quantities of high-calorie, high-fat foods until they become obese. The very same changes occur in the brains of rats that over-consume cocaine or heroin, and are thought to play an important role in the development of compulsive drug use.

                          http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases...0328170243.htm

                          "Living in an area with more fast food outlets and convenience stores than supermarkets and grocers has been associated with obesity in a Canadian study."

                          ....too many to cite here.

                          "Fat tissue is the body's largest hormone-producing organ, secreting a large number of hormones that affect appetite, bowel function, brain function, and fat and sugar metabolism. One of these hormones is adiponectin, which in sufficient quantities encourages the proper action of insulin on fats and sugars and reduces inflammation. Women with PCOS produce a smaller amount of adiponectin than women who do not have the disease, in response to other fat-produced hormones..."

                          "...overweight individuals felt more embarrassed and intimidated about exercising, exercising around young people, exercising around fit people, and about health club salespeople than individuals of normal weight."

                          http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases...1217133738.htm

                          "Overweight is widely considered a stigmatizing condition and overweight individuals are typically blamed for their situation. The experience of being stigmatized often leads to negative feelings, even in children."

                          http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases...0611142524.htm

                          "The prevalence of short sleep (5 hours or less) was 12 percent for blacks and eight percent for whites."

                          http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases...0608071812.htm

                          “Our findings show that both perceived and actual overweight increase risk for suicide attempt,”

                            Wow. I had no idea vitamin D was so important for weight loss. Nice set of quotes, thank you for posting them.
