    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

    Mmmmm.... pizza. You know they say that you tend to remember best the first and the last thing you read. Pizza here I come!

    But yeah, good post. It's also funny that somehow over the past few years I have come to develop strong opinions on all of those! Haha

        Great post, Joanie.

        Yes, anyone who came to the Primal Blueprint to learn about the Primal Blueprint, would do well to start as you suggest.
        Starting Weight: 197.5
        Current Weight: 123
        Far healthier!

            I agree, except from your bias against artificial sweeteners...

              One thing I think we can all agree on is that pan galactic gargle blasters are unhealthy.

                  Thank you Joanie. If all of the "opinions" being spewed forth on the forum nowadays were here 9 months ago when I started a Primal lifestyle I would have run for the hills. The nonsense spewers/carb evangelists are actually hurting people by confusing them whether they realize it or not. Or maybe that is their goal.....

                    Lost it at that point, then continued to lose it for the rest of the post. Good stuff XD

                    I feel sorry for new people--when I first started lurking I think there were only a few people with dissenting opinions, now it feels like no one can agree on anything. Not really a complaint, just an observation--at least it's entertaining.

                      Actually I think we're all in agreement that BPA is bad...

                        I ate X diet and got Y results, and if you eat X diet, you will get Y results, too. You WILL get them someday. I swear. I would know, because it happened to me, and what happens to me is the exact same thing that will happen to every other human being to ever exist on the face of this planet in the history of all time forever.

                          Great stuff joanie. I was thinking of writing something similar in a multi-choice question style, but I think yours is more betterer.
                          Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

                            If my post got folks to smile, way good.

                            If it saved one newbie from running to the nearest Carvel, after being "advised" 20 things that don't agree, even better.

                            Shamelessly bumping this up (just once) for the noobs.

                              I certainly can't be the only one who thought the original post had no point.
