  • Wow, that is a headslapper. Hopefully slapping HER head though.

        Trust me I get many of the same looks/reactions when I wear VFF as well. I've become adept at reading peoples' eyes as they pass; it's rather amusing.

        I wore my VFF to play basketball this past weekend and got a few comments... all positive, one was curious about ankle support but that just comes with building up your foot/ankle strength over time... etc.
        Are you a college student, trying to navigate college while being Primal? Do you know any other PB college students on a tight budget? Heck, for that matter, are YOU trying to live Primal on a budget? Enroll at Primal University!

        For after all what is man in nature? A nothing in relation to infinity, all in relation to nothing, a central point between nothing and all and infinitely far from understanding either.

        • This isn't really funny, but I don't feel like making an entire thread about it.

          My sister things eating beijing beef Panda Express is mostly primal. u_u

          Then she asked me seriously if it was cool to be vegetarian on this WOE. She hasn't been primal for a full week (not even giving it a good shot) and she's giving up. She even read the entire PB book.

          I won't push it with her, BUT COME ON!

            Until I started to gain weight after a particular intense bout of antibiotics, I think most people who know me would think I have/had no health problems at all. Even my husband, who naturally gravitated away from grains & sugar his whole life, had seasonal allergies (which went away entirely with our dietary change and household elimination of chemicals) & eczema (greatly reduced) & a few other very minor health complaints that have disappeared with a change to whole, real, low- or no-grain eating.

            We all react differently to the poisons we eat and are surrounded by, depending on what they are, our genetics, and our family inheritance (nutritional deficiencies and gut imbalance passed from generation to generation until someone puts an end to it or the family line ceases to be able to reproduce). Some of us have more visible problems (weight, handicap, chronic outward illness, cancer...) and others are lucky enough to be able to hide it well, whether b/c of the nature or size of the problem.
            I agree. When I went off gluten I lost symptoms I didn't know I'd had. For example, I thought how my stomach felt before was the normal sensations of a working stomach. Now I know it was actually feeling tender, very bloated and uncomfortable. I'd been that way all my life, I didn't know. And what about invisible problems. For example no one but my husband knew about my need to rush to the loo several times first thing in the morning, that meant I couldn't for example set off early for a train trip (no loos in the station or on the local trains).

            And how many things are there that we think are normal for older people, which are actually about diet. For example, my MIL has type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol and high blood pressure. Try telling her to cut down on the desserts though! She's always been very thin so she thinks that means she eats well. My husband may seem healthy now, but I think he's quite lethargic considering he's not even 40 yet, and his genes will kick in sooner or later.

            Some people are more resilient than others, for sure. Not everyone who eats gluten gets as sick as I did. But I think everyone would benefit from this WOE, just in having more energy for example, even if they don't have overt health problems (yet).

            • Here's one based on believing Authority instead of common sense... My friend just announced (through a Facebook app) that she burned 617 calories doing 35 minutes of elliptical. I told her that couldn't possibly be right unless she was also bleeding profusely at the time, but she assured me, "The calculator figures it out for you, so it's right."

              • I got one earlier: Someone offered me this thing called a cakeball (a chunk of cake coated with chocolate ganache.) I said "I'm sure it tastes great, and thanks for the offer but I can't eat it." when asked why i responded with my standard "I don't react well to grains or sugar." "Well, there's no grains or sugar in this." Uhhhh.... i just said "No, thanks," and walked away.
                Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

                  Now I'm scared. WTH was in that thing?
                  Most people don't realize how much energy it takes for me to pretend to be normal.

                  • Actually, I'm willing to bet it was made with fake sugar of some sort and he didn't realize chocolate had sugar in it and that flour is a grain product. This the same guy that, when I told him I couldn't have wheat, told me they have white bread at the meeting.

                    • Maybe it was an antimatter cakeball.

                      ... now my nerd brain wants to order one of those engraved MedicAlert bracelets claiming I have an allergy to antimatter. It's technically true!

                        • I work with a few Japanese people and the subject of my way of eating comes up every now and then. I've told them about grains. Wheat: actively bad for you. Poison. Most of the nutrients are in the husk which is indigestible anyway. White rice: just starch with no nutrients, meaning that it costs your body some of its own nutrient stores to digest it and does not give any back, therefore if you eat white rice regularly, be sure to include lots of healthy meats and vegetables.

                          Yesterday I was asked if I'm going to go out for sushi with everyone on the weekend. I said maybe. She laughed at me in an "Ah-hah! Got you!" kind of way. "So you DO eat rice!"

                          I neeeveerrr saaiiid I diiiiddnnn'ttt....

                          And with other people, even though most of the time "meat and vegetables" is like one word when I talk about this kind of stuff, they just hear "meat" and think I'm pure carnivore.
