I am a new member from France. I have discovered by chance MDA on the web some months ago and read as much as I can. Being convinced my Mark's arguments, I am happily switching from a South Beach approach to PB. For 15 days I have stopped all direct carbohydrate ingestion (only from vegetables and fruits). Leaving the bread behind me was the most difficult (especially, tasty organic whole bread). More generally, I have some difficulty to be organic in a systematic way, especially for the meat, but also for the vegetables, but I try to get as close as I can, avoiding anything grown in Spain for example and buying local. Availability and costs are the culprit of course.
I have also some difficulty to find good quality supplements in France (multi-vitamin and fish oil): I have to choose between good quality/very expensive, and reasonable priced/toy ones.
If you are from France, how do you handle these availability and cost problems. Do you have any opinion on the compatibility between PB and the French way of life (I find them very nicely compatible, on my side)?
Bien à vous,
