    The posters other posts don't look spam-like to me. They engaged in conversation pretty normally elsewhere. This post looks very unusual compared to the others. Punctuation is different, all lower-case. No idea what to make of that.

      Look again. It does seem to be human writing on the value side, which is unusual, but the spam links are still there. It is a peculiar thing in 2013 indeed, one has to wonder how enough value is generated to make it worthwhile.

      ETA: Or not. Now I can't remember if I was supposed to buy a blender or what, LOL.

        Yeah, I only saw one post with weird spammy links in it. The others were engaging and the poster directly responds to other people by name. Rare that you get someone actually engaging as a spammer, but it's much more insidious.

            This is kind of an odd thread. They didn't ask for advice or anything, just popped in and went, "I disagree with y'all ... k, bye!"

            Especially with no later posts to respond to the responses or add to why they think it's a good idea to "stop primal/paleo". Maybe they just haven't had the chance yet?

                @oceangirl,
                Folks,

                I am a real poster! This one was posted from my mobile, hence the punctuation and lower-case letters.

                @oceangirl - be nice, please. Each case is different.

                    I think Perfect Health diet seems to strike a good middle ground too.

                    BTW, I am not a spammer.

                    EDIT: sorry, saw that the poster is a spammer.

                      @PBNewby, I did read "The Primal Blueprint".
                      According to me, the take away from TPB is - "Saturated fats are good for you. Be liberal with them. Feel satiated. Eat carbs in the sweet spot i.e. 50-100g daily". That is quite low carb.

                      To answer your questions:

                      I was on Primal for around 5 months. I'll post the starting and ending cholesterol numbers back again, I don't have them handy at the moment. I posted numbers from around 2 months ago sometime ago.
                      In the last month/two, I was totally off dairy, which I thought would help lower LDL. It didn't - in fact it shot up to 217 mg/dl. My TC as of last week was around 315. TG were really low (as expected). And HDL was around 69 mg/dl.


                      Regarding exercise, I think this has been my biggest mistake - not getting enough. In hindsight, the main reason I think was because of lack of energy. I think I lost a lot of muscle glycogen and subsequently developed these muscle issues - like cramps etc.

                      OP, I am curious how long you were primal, what were your starting/ending chol numbers, and your starting/ending weight? How much exercise do you do?

                        BTW, just FYI.

                        Curiously, all my muscle problems started after starting Vitamin D3 (around 2000 IU daily, although the GP recommended 4000IU daily for 3-4 weeks). Don't know if it's a association.

                          Out of all of the posts that questioned you..you chose mine? Sorry but your same post on 6/31 pointed to someone causing trouble. In fact, someone else questioned you on 6/31.

                            I posted the same question on two different threads - that's what was questioned. You seem to be the only one who resorted to name-calling. Think twice before calling someone a sh*t-stirrer.

                              Till cholesterol agnosticism becomes mainstream science, I don't think Paleo/Primal will get credibility.

                              I like Dean Ornish's statement (not his diet programme) - "If you are on an Atkins-style diet, you are just mortgaging your health".
