  • I got sick so I stoped eating Paleo.........

    Not me.....but several others that have been "converted"

    They do so well for like six weeks and then they get a cold and start eating pizza and other things that they know not to eat. Seems very strange that eating such great food and get a little cold and it all goes to shit!

    My thing is that most people that have "converted" from myself or fiance DO NOT READ ANYTHING about Paleo/Primal!!!! That to me is dense and I tell them so as it is a very easy choice to not eat stupid stuff when you realize just what it does. Seems that most treat this like Atkins or something vs. a way to reset your genetic expression. Oh wait....this now sounds like a fad diet

      You should keep a vat of bone marrow stock brewing and bring it to them. A hot jar of that is the new coffee, I tell ya what!

        When/if I ever get a cold/sick(it does not happen very often), i opt for either fasting/rest, or if I'm hungry, I choose to eat wholesome foods. Eating crap just seems like it would prolong the sickness. The bone broth that Doc B suggests is great stuff! I like to think of it as Primal Gatorade.
        Free your mind, and your Grok will follow!

          Thanks for the reminder - I need to make some stock from those marrow bones I got from the farmers market.

            That's funny. The only time I've gotten sick since starting Paleo 2.5 years ago was when I took a short break when some friends were in town. I won't be doing that again.

              I definitely crave more carby things when I'm sick, but it's easy to manage that without resorting to junk food.

                Dosen't work so well with a toddler in Daycare. Although 6 months primal and I've only been sick once!

                  I could imagine. We were going to put ours in daycare (would have just started a few days ago), but were lucky enough to be able to make things work on just one salary.

                    It's been hard for me to get over that thought hill as well. For me it was "If this flu makes my stomach hurt anyway, what harm is there in gluten?".
                    In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.

                      That is the thing....if you understand what gluten does to your system then there should not be a problem here.

                          I think it has very little to do with knowing or not knowing what the junk food actually does to you and MUCH more to do with the emotional connection those people have with whatever their food is.
                          For example, I know people who are primal but when they get sick, all they want is a pizza because the experience of eating that when sick is comforting. Or they want oatmeal because it's what they're grandmother used to make them when they got sick as a child. this emotional connection is extremely hard to break for most people and, if they're new to primal, a reset like that early on can send them right back to where they were before in no time.

                          Food should be used to nourish and not as an emotional crutch. Many won't even admit that this is what's going on...
                          Living the primal lifestyle and loving it! On a constant quest of optimal health and living life to the fullest :-).

                          You can have excuses or results -- not both.

                            I was given a suggestion that blew my mind, so I'm going to share it with you: crockpots are portable. Set it up in the garage, and set a timer in the house.
                            Most people don't realize how much energy it takes for me to pretend to be normal.

                            If I wanted to listen to an asshole, I'd fart.

                              I lived in Kenya for two years and cooked all of my meals over a charcoal fire outside on my back stoop. You could always cook your soup outside.
