    I'm pretty sure I'm cured. Why only today I read Mark's blog about little used organ meats and thought "I wonder where I can buy spleen in the UK!"

      Truth. Even growing up--when my family was ultra Fat Is Teh Evils!--my mom refused to get low fat mayonaisse. As she liked to joke, "Life is too short to not have real Best Foods." I dont eat much mayo now, cause of the PUFAs, but when I do have a little bit I do so relatively guilt-free. After I started going primal, though, I read the ingredients of the low fat mayo at the store, and sure enough it was, like, ALL PUFAs and sugars. Blarg.

      Cut to last week, where I was at a friends house for a big crab feed dinner party. It was awesome, lots of fresh crab (I picked up the buggers live from an asian market myself), and my friend made some of her family's cooked-crab recipes, like dip and crab cakes and some sort of casserole thing. I asked her what was in them, and she--knowing that im primal--assured me it was primarily cream and butter and spices and mayo. I was like "sweet" and went to town.

      Then as we were leaving, we were all chatting about the different recipes, and she mentioned offhand that while the aoli sauce was made with real mayo, she used low fat light mayo in all the rest of the recipes, cause, you know, "you can get away with the healthier option there." I didnt say anything, but I think my face noticeably darkened, because she changed the subject rapidly.
      "Since going primal, I've found that there are very few problems that cannot be solved with butter and/or bacon fat."

      • This is just pathetic!

        Coast Guard vessal stability rules say how many passengers vessals can safely carry. It pretty much stayed the same for years, except now they've realized we (in general) are just plain fat. I guess the old numbers were based on the average person weighing 160 pounds and now they've had to up it to 185 pounds, so Washington state has had to lower the number of passengers each ferry can hold.

        Nice.

        I don't think Washington is any heavier than the rest of the country, just that they don't have a lot of ferries in Kansas, so that's where the story is.

        • I don't understand why this is "pathetic!" While it is sad that more Americans are overweight than ever, it is just plain realism to acknowledge that and make safety policy based on that reality. It is really long overdue.

          • Imagine if they took out a lane on every multi-lane road on your commute to work and think about what that would do for your commute times. Or if your bus could carry less passengers than before, or your train had one less car. That's basically what the change in ferry capacity means for the folks who were using them.

            I agree that pathetic isn't the word, more like sad and frustrating.

                    • Okay, so maybe "pathetic" isn't the perfect word. But I do find it sad that we as a nation have gained enough weight that we have to adjust our regulations so the ferries don't sink.

Went off Statins for a while...first blood test "good", second not so much. Never had partical size done because his "fantastic doctor" said it wasn't necessary. He went back on statins. So yesterday, I sent him a link to the abstract of the big study from Norway that showed an inverse relationship between total cholesterol and mortality. He replied that I don't need to waste my time with the links because he wasn't changing. I responded that I knew, but I thought a massive, recent study showing he could be increasing his risk of death might intrigue him. Never heard back from that one. CW sucks and its inertia is bone crushingly depressing.

                            It's probably this study: Is the use of cholesterol in mortality risk algorithms in clinical guidelines valid? Ten years prospective data from the Norwegian HUNT 2 study - Petursson - 2011 - Journal of Evaluation in Clinical Practice - Wiley Online Library

                            Some choice quotes:

                            "clinical and public health recommendations regarding the ‘dangers’ of cholesterol should be revised. This is especially true for women, for whom moderately elevated cholesterol (by current standards) may prove to be not only harmless but even beneficial."

                            "the underlying assumptions regarding cholesterol in clinical guidelines for CVD prevention might be flawed: cholesterol emerged as an overestimated risk factor in our study, indicating that guideline information might be misleading"
                            "Trust me, you will soon enter a magical land full of delicious steakflowers, with butterbacons fluttering around over the extremely rompable grass and hillsides."
