  • Reasons Not To Fall Off The Primal Bandwagon

    Reason No. 1: When you climb back on, low-carb flu sucks. (I need a nap.)

    What ever kind of diarrhea, constipation, gas and bloating I get from eating junk is SO not worth it (since the junk doesn't event taste good).

      Why throw water on the fire when it is burning....what a pain to have to restart it.

      The light headedness and low energy that I had with eating a SAD diet....

        Timely topic!

        The sugar rollercoaster, ugh! Up and down, crappy sleep, inability to focus or parent well.

          I have definitely noticed this -- when I eat non-primal foods, they taste either meh at best or horrid at worst. I think this should be its own Reason: Eating non-primal foods don't even taste good anymore. (To say nothing of the body's other, non-taste-bud reactions!)

                  How about how gluten can affect you for up to 6 months (effects degrade over time) after eating it?

                    I'm not being negative, but for me, a good fall from grace is usually enough to put me on the straight and narrow for a long time. I don't usually go off track for much time, maybe three or four days, but four days of bread, and I'm ready to stop farting and get back to being healthy.

                    So maybe that's the good reason to not fall off the wagon? Because farting isn't fun? Unless you laugh at farts, and then I don't know what to tell you.

                      I fell off the wagon a bit this week (Binging on gluten-free mac and cheese, as well as some less-than-midnight-dark chocolate bars) and I've been dragging like MAD! NO MORE.

                        bloating.

                        moodswings.

                        constipation.

                        unenjoyment of food.

                          Reason No. 6*: Non-homemade food tends to taste like crap. (I used to love eating out. Now I sort of dread it -- overpriced, oversalted, oversauced lower-quality meats? Bleh.)

                          * I'm just making up numbers as I go.

                            Because you are not on a bandwagon, you are on the instinctive path to health and being the way you are supposed to be. To "fall off" would be totally against your instincts.

                            Somebody posted this on another forum I'm on. Sums up what I was trying to say above I think.

                            Living according to your own evolution is … simply … natural.

                              Waking up with stiff, aching joints, brain fog, and a head full of snot after eating wheat? Totally not worth it.

                              The massive belly-bloat after drinking beer? Totally not worth it.

                              The draggy, tired feeling that persists all day after eating grains (including, but not limited to, wheat)? Totally not worth it.

                              The elevated heart rate and worsening of ADHD symptoms after eating refined carbs? Totally not worth it.

                              One really great thing, however, that keeps me from "indulging" in a lot of old favorites is that I have clear memories of how they taste, and how they feel in my mouth. So when I look at those foods and imagine taking a bite, I remember what that's like--and what it's like is usually so repulsive I have no trouble refusing it. Turning down leftover Halloween candy was dead easy this year (okay, except for Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, but I still did not weaken). Anything from a supermarket bakery? Eew! Deep-fried things? Yuck! If I just stop and recall the taste and mouthfeel, there is zero temptation.
