    Welcome back Robin! So sorry to hear about your relationship travails - glad you got safely out of it.

    Good luck with your fresh start in your new digs. Looks like you've got lots of friendly guests dropping in to keep an eye on you and hold you accountable!
    Yes, the accountability has worked before.

    Following you still in the shadows (and not in the creepy way!). I always seem to find some inspiration from your journaling. Please don't stop! B2B
    Not creepy at all but posting would be fine too. Welcome in either case.

    It does seem to be that way. The 2.0 body is clean and healthy and says, "What are you doing putting that poison in me?"

    Hi Paleobird,
    I followed along in your second journal while you were taking care of your Dad. Though it is always sad, there was a great deal of beauty in the story as well. It reminded me of the last days of my Mom (ten years ago).
    I'm all about new beginnings, which is why I often wake to see the sun rise. I look forward to reading more about this leg of the journey.
    Thanks. I appreciated your support through all of that as someone with BTDT experience.

    Paleobird, I like how you wrote out your goals. Will be cheering you on!
    The SWYPO acronym was coined by the folks over at the Whole9 site. I have been reading a lot of their stuff lately and it is really making sense. I think Mark want's to invite the largest number of people possible under the Primal tent and so makes it easy to be 80/20 and have your favorite indulgences like dairy, wine, chocolate, etc.
    The Whole9 approach is more hardcore and I think that's where I need to go. They do allow for butter so they are not totally whacked about the dairy thing. For everything else I use coconut cream anyway. This just cuts out my lovely expensive cheeses that are way too easy to snarf down and not feel satiated. I figure if I am hungry enough to eat cheese but not hungry enough to eat meat, then I am not really hungry. I am just noshing because it tastes good or doing it mindlessly as I watch TV.

      Hi Paleobird!

      Can I be your #1 stalker on this thread? (I lurked in your other one's) You remind me so much of my BFF in many ways and I appreciate and relate to a lot of your posts and responses.

      Glad to see a new beginning for you!

        I am a long time W30 follower. I have done 6 of them..one was a W100. A bunch of us crazy folks did it. I think 26 of us started the W100..7 of us finished. :0) Butter is only allowed in the form of clarified or ghee. Homemade ghee is one of my gobbled pleasures.

          Other than the occasional booze (which has gotten to be too occasional) and the dairy, my whole life is one giant whole 30. I'm willing to give them a try on those two issues, the booze and dairy, because what they say about these topics makes a lot of sense. Still using up the last of my (too copious) cheese stash but the booze went down the drain.

              Oh yes..don't toss the cheese. Let me know if you get in the mood to make your own ghee. Easy and so tasty.

                I know how to make ghee, I just like the way that butter tastes and I don't think it has enough milk solids in it to make a difference. Even the hard core Whole9 people include it.

                I'm kind of a cheese snob. I only buy the really good stuff. There is a goat milk brie in the fridge calling my name.

                    "Processed American Cheese Food-Like Substance". No, that doesn't count.

                      Good morning!

                      There is a goat milk brie in the fridge calling my name.
                      There are few food things quite as alluring as the siren song from a runny goat milk brie.

                      Since you're somewhat contemplating watching calories, what helps me sometimes is to just have a cheese day. I make a trip and just buy what I'll eat in a day, then when I'm done, I put that tiger back in the closet until next time. Sort of a cheese refeed. Lox also works as the perfect platform for some cheeses.

                        Mmmmm.. Salmon refeeds! Now your talkin! We've got all kinds of wild caught on sale around here. I've been doing taste test comparisons. Sockeye vs. keta and now wild caught Alaskan pink is on sale for 1.99 per lb ths week. Time for a smoke out! We rarely see King, but I'll take it's wild caught inferior cousins any day

                          I think going cougar might make sense in that all the guys my age seem to be falling apart at the seams. I need to find a young one who can keep up with me.
                          Don't give up on all of us. There are some of us "older Paleo guys" who can put the young guns to shame.

                            I just had the brie for brekkie. Perhaps I could have a once a week cheese refeed like Choco does his spuds. Having it in the fridge is just too dangerous though. I like your idea about buy it, eat it, then done. I have a really good cheese shop that sells raw milk snooty cheeses within walking distance of my house.

                            Seafood of all kinds has really been appealing to me recently. Wild caught sockeye is my favorite.

                              Re: cheese, whenever I buy a block of tasty Kerrygold Dubliner or some nice raw grassfed cheese, I just accept that I'm going to eat it all within an hour or two. It's pointless to keep it around; I just pick some up once or twice a week and eat it. Same with good 90% dark chocolate. It works for me.
