        Aside from the carbs, look at all the processed junk you've removed at the same time!

            Thanks guys! I'm definitely a snacker. My portions are rediculously small, and I'm constantly eating I don't have a weight problem so I don't worry about it.

              I was thinking about this the other day when reading one of those 'what did you have for lunch' threads. My Korg eating habits were similar to yours, e.g.:

              Breakfast: Cheerios, whole wheat toast and jelly
              Lunch: Quizno's sandwich and chips
              Dinner: frozen pizza and beer

              Snacks: Goldfish crackers, Little Debbie snack cakes (shudder)

              Some days were worse, some days marginally better, but that is representative.

                Exactly! Even if I haven't gotten 100% primal (yet) I've still made outstanding changes in my diet. Going from grains and processed packaged foods to whole meats and produce... it feels great.

                    Haha, isn't it funny how we used to think pop-tarts were food?? I was partial to the brown sugar cinnamon ones. Just thinking about it now conjures the exact sensation of eating cardboard.

                        If I had to guess, I'd say that's about 100-115 carbs MAX, which if someone is not trying to lose weight (as the OP mentioned she's not) is perfectly fine! I've had my flirtations with VLC and ZC, but let's not expect everyone to be that way.

                          Yeah... I eat between 80g-150g carbs per day (depending on my exercise level). I don't consider that "a lot" of carbs for someone who is underweight Some people on this forum are so quick to judge!

                            Hah! I had a moment at the grocery store yesterday... my fiance asked me to pick up some Goldfish (crackers). I seriously considered stopping at the pet store and getting some goldfish instead. It would definitely be a better choice.

                              Good stuff. Considering that massive leap I'm not going to ride you too hard on the specifics now. Do that for a while and see how things play out and then once you're comfortable gradually reduce the nuts and increase the animal fat. Beef is your buddy.

                              But really good stuff. It took me months to make that sort of transition. I'm like that wuss who's afraid to dive right into the water and has to go legs first :/
