  • Some of you are extreme!!

    OK i have been primal for about a month and when people go into the scientific it drives me nuts Grok ate what he hunted and gathered and didnt break out a calculator to calculate omegas and fats and such.. Just eat primal and it will fall into place RELAX lol................

    Okay but that problem with that notion is that the more one knows, the better it falls into place. Good health isn't yes or no, a or b, black or white, disease vs nothing diagnosed, primal vs non primal. There is tons of variation and I find that it matters to play with the variables. You relax. If you think you have it all figured out and can't possibly improve upon anything as long as you're eating "primally" go hard, but I'm going to strongly disagree and that condescending and complacent attitude isn't very becoming.

      We hunt and gather at the supermarket and they always have lots of almonds so I guess that means it's ok to eat like a pound a day lol

        Primal Blueprint is a health style. this is a health forum. where we talk about health. which, a lot of the time, involves talking abot numbers and ratios.

        Good job yelling at everyone though. great move.... :/

          I disagree, it's not us that is extreme. This world we live in is extreme, our f'd up food supply, the insane amount of variations of products out there, the toxins in our food, mercury in our fish, the animals we eat eating crap themselves....well, you get it. I think it takes A LOT of research and knowledge to navigate through all this and find out what is actually safe to eat in this world. Grok didn't really have the option to mess up his diet like we do. It's unfortunate that we have to analyze the crap out of everything but if you don't then there's a good chance you're getting a lot wrong. Maybe that doesn't matter to YOU, but for most of us here, especially those trying to overcome health issues we can't just relax.

            I think Ripped42young has a point regarding weighing and measuring the micro-nutrients in everything we eat. But I second PrimalChild in that, in our modern environment, we need analysis and science to discern good from bad foods. as opposed to Grok, we have access to unhealthy food in terms of quantity and quality. Additionally, Evolutionary Nutrition and Fitness is, and pardon the redundancy, an evolving field, so I guess it pays off to remain skeptical and informed.

                I personally find it entertaining to analyze things. It's a hobby of mine. I love reading and doing research online, and seeing what im putting into my body. ha.

If my regimen leads to my death, be it in six days or six months...I will die fullfiled. The outcome is irrelavent so long as i steer towards my fate. If death is to be my prize, i welcome it with open arms."

                      I don't think Ripped was being condescending or yelling. We all have different points of view and each is valid. I fall somewhere in between, but do find the more I analysis the more overwhelmed I become.

                      I appreciate those that do the homework so I can learn without becoming obsessed myself.

                          I do kind of agree with the extreme comment. I was posting quite regularly for awhile and got kind of turned off by the every bite must be perfect mentality that can rear it's ugly head. The omg god you ate a cookie your gonna die or how coud you buy conventional meat. I think there may be quite a few who find this site and like the premise but get turned away by that. Which is sad. Primal eating has done wonders for me. But I am not perfect and conventional veggies and meats are a staple with some grass fed and organic thrown in here and there. When i can. I think mark should repost this link. http://www.marksdailyapple.com/dont-...y-of-the-good/. Or it should be part of the hey im new and need info list. I love the health discussions and all but tend to lurk and read the posts.

                            There are a lot of people here, particularly women, who can't just "eat right", as in primal, and have the weight just fall off. I have to watch every bit of fruit, nuts and dairy, to lose maybe 5 pounds a month. I envy the people who can "just eat primal" and have the weight fall off like you.

                              Additionally, even the best modern attempt at reproducing a primal diet will be off the mark nutritionally in significant ways. Most of us simply are unable or unwilling to eat the entire animal. If we were, this would substantially change several important ratios (Na:Ca:K:kcal) and would improve intake of mutiple vitamins as well.
