  • I've just done a Griff...

    And I was able to tell that little voice to STFU (y'know the one which moans on and on about calories and how eating all this is gonna make me fat...?)

    All I was gonna have was a tin of sardines and salad. Ten minutes later there were 3 empty tubs on the counter: -

    A 1lb tub of Fage
    A 0.5lb tub of ricotta (I can't bring myself to buy mascarpone, that to me seems a bridge too far)
    A 10floz tub of cream (only light cream, though! I've stopped buying heavy cream - the calories were freaking me out!)

    And I don't feel guilty (though that little voice is telling me that Griff probably weighs twice what I do and, stating the obvious here, he's a bloke and, therefore, can handle the extra calories. I'm only a 118lb lassie!)

    So, is it all gonna catch up with me (cos I've been doing it quite a bit of late - not that I can really afford to, not with Fage at $4.10 a tub! How much is it over there...?)?

    The only thing you should worry about is the price. Don't plan on only eating salad and sardines, I plan everyday to stuff myself at 2 meals to keep my weight up(a bit of IF).

      SV. You need to focus on getting lots of plants and animals into your body and being healthy. I see a lot of stressing over specifics on here and I don't think that it's doing you ANY favours.

      Have you listened to any of Rob Wolf's podcasts? Over and over again he reiterates that people see the results they are stressing over when they STOP counting (calories, fat, protein, whatever) and just eat what they want in terms of meat and non-starchy vegetables.

          Light cream? embrace your inner Primal and get the real stuff. Light = Real * Processing, and thus not as good.

          That volume of dairy may end up catching up with you at some point, but not for calories or fat content... my system doesn't tolerate dairy very well, I end up breaking out really badly when I consume it. I know it's different for everyone though, so it may be alright for you. Some of what you had was fermented, ricotta doesn't have the chemical most people are sensitive to (it's made from just the whey)... so the cream is the only thing that would cause an issue.

            I just discovered Fage last week - they even had the full-fat version! (I skip everything that says "2%" or "0%") yummy yummy yummy yummy
            bugger the calorie counting! Your weight is PERFECT. Like darien says - git more veggies in your belly! I bet some Fage would make a scrumptious tzatziki sauce/dressing! You have such marvelous cucumbers in the UK...

                  Yeah, your ass is going to swell up to the size of your signature.
                  I am hoping this is sarcasm. And if it is have you taken the time to actually read her signature? Yes, she can be abrasive, and yes some people would rather not read what she has to say, but she does have a disability and will take what you just said to heart, not the sarcastic tone that I picked up.

                  Seriously, if you don't want to see it don't read it. And if you do read it keep in mind what you say to a person that has a different level of understanding than you do.

                    Ah. That's why I still have that one in my ignore file.
                    Primal eating in a nutshell: If you are hungry, eat Primal food until you are satisfied (not stuffed). Then stop. Wait until you're hungry again. Repeat.

                      I love that you don't feel guilty. I don't think guilt helps almost anyone to be healthier. Glad to hear that.

                      Ditto this. Maybe a high fat content?

                      I personally could not handle all the dairy, but I'm sensitive to it. I feel that it should be used in moderation if you are really trying to eat a primal diet, more like a condiment than the focus of meals. Just my opinion based on my own experience though.

                      Its not actually on the PB food pyramid--see here: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/how-t...mal-blueprint/ (It's also not part of any paleo diets which are quite close to primal...)

                      Here is Mark's def. guide to dairy as well, for those interested. http://www.marksdailyapple.com/dairy-intolerance/

                      If it works for you, keep at it. But if you aren't getting the results you want 'eating primally', it may be because you are not really *eating primally*, which, from all of my reading/research, is eating lots of meat and non starchy veggies, some nuts/seeds and fruit, along w/ the optional starchier veg., dairy, and dark chocolate in moderation.

                        Maybe no one should be talking to her at all since she fundamentally can't seem to understand the concepts behind the PB and constantly misconstrues the good advice people give her. She needs help but no one here can give it to her.

                          ia. She just gets people all fired up and it's getting pretty annoying.

                              light cream is just essentially heavy cream and whole milk. it's not any less primal than whole milk and is certainly 'less processed' than yogurt....not that yogurt is processed in any 'bad' way when it's just plain yogurt.

                              I thought it was very funny SV I totally got it since Griff is always saying 'eat more fat'.

                              C'mon guys. This was progress for SV and you were all pretty mean and sucky about it.
