      Plus at some point they'll have run a story about carbs causing cancer. What with them thinking everything causes cancer.

        What am I doing? Depends on the day.

        • Shawn M, I had my own moment when I truly realized what I was doing was permanent.

          I ate Indian the other day and my lactose intolerance made itself known very quickly and then I spent a very miserable night because I had some naan with it and had flu like symptoms, joints aching and pain ALL NIGHT. A day of pain killers and no glutens or starches and I felt better. I have learned my lesson: wheat is bad!

          Maybe you could suggest your Mom try Primal after you show her my post.

            1. Eat breakfast every day, especially before early-morning workouts.
            Missing breakfast is an enormous mistake because, simply put, it reduces the number of calories you will have available for energy. Low blood sugar saps mental and physical energy by causing the body to rely heavily on proteins and fats as the chief fuel source.
            Um, what?

              Yeah, and TBH, he doesn't look all that healthy either...
              They are both in their mid-sixties. I predict both will be dead before their 70th birthday, if they carry on with the vegan stuff. Normal vegans/vegetarians never see their sixtieth birthday, but in their case they only took it up late.

              It is their daughter I feel sorry for. She doesn't have any kids yet, and when she does her children are unlikely to know their maternal grandparents.

                I dunno if it would help to tell her about my mom. Her digestion has always been . . . well, pretty horrible. She started to get better when she cut back on her coffee (16 oz cup instead of 2 each morning). But what really got her to say "I never knew it could work that well!" was the week I spent with her and we cooked Primal. She's not Primal, but she has ditched wheat and hasn't looked back.

                  Is the cake recipe worth sharing?
                  Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

                    I have no idea what the recipe was, but I can tell you that it was gluten-free but definitely not primal considering the sugar, rice flour, and other things that were almost certainly involved. However, she did say her trick is in using good sour cherries from the Italian Centre and putting some of the juice from the jar into the cake batter to replace some of the liquid. She also uses a touch of almond extract in the whipped cream, and real kirsch of course. Definitely not your standard sicky-sweet version.

                      My mom was looking over this new medication that her doctor gave her today to help with her diarrhea. It's cholesterol medication. Specifically a medication that has caused recorded deaths. Apparently, the doctor prescribed it to her because one of the side effects is constipation, which she hopes will counteract the diarrhea. My mother realizes that this logic is completely absurd, but she still plans on taking the medication. When I asked her why she would do that she said, "Because the doctor told me to."

                      Sometimes I really hate having taken the red pill, so to speak.

                      That is very sad, and sounds a lot like my dad, who takes a dozen different meds (including insulin for his type 2 diabetes), but refuses to address the issues with his diet (TV dinners, frozen pot pies, pizza, fried chicken and biscuits, etc etc).

                      Anecdotally speaking, my digestive tract is much happier when I eat Primal and stay away from wheat and grains (rice I can handle in small quantities), and limit my intake of dark chocolate. What goes in eventually comes out, right? Well, if people continue to eat crappy food, I can't imagine that what comes out of the other end is going to be very pleasant.

                        Some how I feel like, on this thread, this might open a can of worms where everyone discusses primal and non primal poo.

                        Or...a segue into shit talking.

                        Badum tisssss.

                            I certainly would advocate finding and fixing the root problem of the digestive issues, but in the absence of that...has she tried eating more bananas to help with the diarrhea? Its what mom always had us do as kids.

                            Come to think of it, I just realized: I wonder if its not because the bananas "bulked us up," so to say, but rather because they provided a prebiotic food source for our natural intestinal flora and fauna, allowing them to reestablish themselves and getting things back to normal...
                            "Since going primal, I've found that there are very few problems that cannot be solved with butter and/or bacon fat."

                              I'll certainly suggest it.

                              • Just had to confess...

                                Didn't have time to make b-fast (woke up late due to faulty alarm/drama with teenaged son last night). STARVING for something ~ anything ~ primal-ish!

                                Looked in fridge, there's little square 'tubs' of butter............. grabbed 3 and slowly licked out the contents thereof.

                                Good thing I'm alone in our department for about another hour -- wouldn't want to gross someone out or anything (heh heh).
                                Started 7/5/11 at 274 lbs
                                Now 214 -- that's 60 lbs!
                                Goal 160 lbs -- last time there was in junior high!
