(My NerdFitness peeps being the exception )
    Some people just can't get past CW. Recently joined the NF forum, I use MFP but I can't say I've ever bothered with the forum on there, though I think I'm a member of the primal group.

    • Looking at the selection of non-dairy milks at Trader Joe's today... a woman shopping with her teenage daughter grabs a Vanilla Almond Milk and the daughter says, what about the unsweetened one? To which the woman replies, "you wouldn't think it but the Vanilla one actually has less calories. I looked at the coconut milks before but they have more calories." Then the daughter takes down a bunch of added-sugar-fake-fruit-flavor yogurts. I wanted to set them straight but I felt like they already probably thought I was judging them, but I can't help my look of disgust when I think about eating things like blueberry-flavored yogurt from a sick, hormone injected, corn fed cow...bleccch.

          What I was talking about re: MFP were comments on my news feed - the forums are full of the craaaazy so I stay away. The person on my news feed who was making the comments about paleo doesn't know that I'm eating Primal, and is otherwise a nice person, so I just stayed off of MFP until the thread rolled off my news feed. Life's too short, and all that...

            • Our Trader Joe's has plenty of Primal food! And close-to-Primal, like frozen organic veggies and berries, etc. But, yes, grass-fed beef is there, and raw cheese, Fresh fruit and veggies and supplements. Coconut oil, too. You could theoretically construct a fairly complete way of Primal eating solely on what is offered at TJ's.

              • It is getting to where I am thinking of saying, when asked how I lost my weight: "I'm not allowed to say." Who need the grief?

                • I shop TJ's... Kerrygold, grass fed beef, fruits and veggies, nuts, coconut oil. It's a better option than most places.

                  • uhm, ok, then the TJ here is Lexington doesnt have any primal food.


                    all i was was
                    sweet wine
                    10,000 different boxed processed shit
                    soy out the butt

                    fresh but precut and packaged fruits ( sweetened of course)

                    frozen fish ( some i admit)

                    carcinogenic nuts of all kinds. ( honestly who needs to roast nuts in canola oil and other horrid oils )

                    juices in abundance

                    and grain grain grain


                    I wont be back


                    Lexington has very limited amounts of real food I have to go to Whole foods for eggs and fage and whipping cream
                    I have to go to fresh market or the Coop for vegetables and fruit
                    Fresh market has some fish
                    Whole foods has some shellfish
                    and thank god for my cattleman else i would have no meat to eat that didnt make me sick to my stomach.

                          • I met a lady while limping my dog today, she happened along just as my knee decided to cause shooting rays of flaming agony up my leg. I am trying not to cry, cause thats like unmanly, and actually talks to me. Hard to imagine a stranger actually talking to me and a pretty one too. That led to me and my son and my idiot dog sitting on her veranda talking about MDA and my success and the fact that she is unknowingly following a paleo diet.

                            She was being quiet because she was afraid that someone might hear her say "I eat meat". All her neighbors are vegans or some variation and she had been intimidated into doing it as well but could not keep it up.

                            I kinda like the idea of being involved in a dirty little secret but I am also a bit gobsmacked by the idea of it all. I sent her to MDA, I hope she finds us. I also hope I see her again, she was not wearing a bra. And my wife says I am a perv, I dont know why she says that........

                            • There's this guy at work, who I can only assume is the president of the American Carboholics Association. Every morning he has two Pop-Tarts, or a pile of Strawberry Newtons, or something like that. And always with fiber supplements ("to cancel the fat"). His afternoon snack is more of the same.

                              So one day, this lady is saying that she doesn't trust drive-thrus, because once they gave her a bun with no burger. I said that's one way to keep the calories down (yeah, that's CW, but I figured they'd get it).

                              Then carbo guy says "No, bread will make you fat!" I was too shocked to continue the conversation.

                              • This weekend I went paddleboarding with some friends (my first time, really fun! Serious workout and so fun to play around on the water). We were planning on driving up to the northbay to paddle around 12-1, be out for an hour or so, and then try and get lunch in the area sometime around 3. Seeing a long day of heavy exercise ahead of me with a late lunch, I woke up at my usual time time of 7:30ish and made a huge breakfast of sausage, bacon, four-egg-yolk omlette, greek yogurt with honey, and a small mocha breve. I met up with people for the carpool and found that they were barely able to drag themselves out of bed at 10:15 and had shoved down a breakfast of cereal, or instant oatmeal with brown sugar, or a powerbar. Seeing such meals as being both carb heavy AND small, I hesitantly suggested to them that maybe theyd want to eat more...? They said no theyd be fine.

                                Well after paddleboarding, we went to this place for lunch which is super good (local organic everything) but had a super long wait. I was hungry, but everyone around me was bloody FAMISHED. My food happened to come first, and it had fries, and everyone at the table DOVE upon them. They were literally not able to stop themselves. It was fine, of course, since I didnt want to eat all the fries anyway, but it was very strange to feel so completely different from everyone else in terms of my energy levels and hunger, AND know EXACTLY the reason why.
