    inflamed faces, severe acne, rosacea, dry skin, "skinny-fat" limbs, 20-somethings wrapped up when it's only 8C outside, brittle nails, people who are always "hungry"...
    And Im so happy that this description is not of me any more. It was.

    No, not starving, obviously you need the toilet paper for something.

      But we ourselves are the general public, are we not? and somehow we managed to catch on. So I have to have hope for my fellow shoppers, however ill informed they appear to be at present.

        Yesterday, I'm checking out at the supermarket, loading up the conveyor with my whole chicken, block romano cheese, brussel sprouts, tomatoes, avacados, blueberries, mac nuts, full fat cream, uncured bacon etc and I notice the woman behind me begin to unload her cart.

        ...Weight Watchers deserts, "100 calorie packs" of cookies and crackers and boxes of cereal, bread, baked potato chips, cardboard boxed everything.....

        It's sad, really. She was definitely in excess and not in shape, inside or out. Aware but unaware.

        Shopping for food has become a surreal experience, like I'm floating in a sea of gluten zombies addicted to cheap easy eating.

        A revalation every single time. I'm so thankful I was compelled to research the Primal Blueprint. A life changing event. I'm fit and free and unencumbered. Empowered.

        You just described my mothers eating; Freezer full of weight watchers this and that, low fat, low calorie... She's jumped around from weight watchers, to vegan, to weight watchers again, the diets just aren't sustainable for long periods of time. I want to tell her how it really is but I'm afraid she'll see it as a personal attack.

          Maybe you could suggest she try Weight Watchers and Primal at the same time? That's what my mom does and it works for her. My mom is very close to her goal weight, so she'd actually completely cut out wheat products before I went primal because they cost a lot of points.

            The buying public is seriously influenced by the media without a doubt.

            It is so much easier and faster to grocery shop than it ever was before. I do need to bite my tongue, though, when the person in front of me is buying six cases of soda.

              Unfortunately, I have fallen into the habit of labeling carts in my head as death carts and life carts. Then I quickly check to see who is committing suicide and who is choosing life. Morbid I know.

                  I am a trolley watcher. I noticed today all the people loading up their soul less baked goods, sugar free drinks and breakfast cereals onto the belt. I had pork belly and veggies to buy and felt really excited about my dinner. The people with the wheat related items and fake food looked so depressed I'm sure there is a connection to that. I think food has become a battle for CW people. They all look so dejected because in CW you can't have anything nice. (Obvious) sugar is banned and fat is banned.

                    I have found it increasingly depressing to go to the regular grocery store. I tend to notice the correlation between food choices and the person's appearance of health more and more. I also feel that a lot of people are not very happy at the grocery store; I can feel the negative energy and it's not hard to see it on their faces! I think it's because so many people have such a tormented relationship with food. I was talking to a guy at the farmer's market recently who is a photographer and mentioned how I don't enjoy going to our regional chain grocery store anymore. He had a contract with that grocer and spent a lot of time in stores and the corporate office and said it really turned him off and he doesn't like to go there anymore. The profits made at the expense of health just seem so wrong. Of course, there is individual choice and free will, but so many people are led astray by food companies and the media. When you can advertise a hot pocket as nutritious, something is very, very wrong!

                      I think you guys are reading too much into the "depressed faces" at the grocery store. I don't think I look too happy when I'm at the local Publix/Kroger either. It's usually late in the day after work and there are too many people crowding my space.

                      I do enjoy grocery shopping slightly more than before primal though. Mainly because I only shop around the edges of the store.

                        We have 3 grocery stores in our town: Safeway, a locally owned heath food store (where I do most of my shopping) and another chain grocery store that seems to cater to lower income folks. I go to the lower end grocery store for paper goods and they have the best price on coconut milk in non-BPA cans; while shopping there I really notice how unhealthy every one looks. Sometimes I try and count how many "healthy" looking people I see. Most of the time I see none, then I try and count the not overweight people and I'll find a few, sadly most in that category look like they are suffering from sort of addiction: drugs, alcohol or cigarettes.

                          I think it makes me sad to look at some of the carts, more than anything.
                          I have struggled with my weight as long as I can remember (maybe age 13/14). I never tried any fad diets, but often followed the CW advice. Low fat, healthy grains, etc.

                          Now that primal is working for me; I'm sad/pissed/annoyed that I never knew this earlier.

                          I figure a lot of the "SAD cart pushers" just haven't figured out the secret yet, but they are probably trying.

                            Exactly how I feel. This knowledge is simply obvious once you know it, but really hard to find, even if you are looking.

                                The woman in front of me tonight had mostly real food. The guy behind me had 6 giant loaves of foil-wrapped garlic bread.
