    Primal eating in a nutshell: If you are hungry, eat Primal food until you are satisfied (not stuffed). Then stop. Wait until you're hungry again. Repeat.

    • For the past two years, my Christmas gift to my grandparents has been bringing them dinner at least six times a year for a nice evening together. I love being able to bring fresh, organic, homemade, nutrient-dense, traditional meals, knowing that they're eating processed stuff most of the time and in terrible health. Almost every time we talk, they mention how delicious these meals are.

      So grandma was in the ICU last week for heart problems. When she was released, I called to bring them some chicken soup, since grandpa had a cold turning into a respiratory infection. She said, "Don't worry about bringing a meal; the doctors said I really have to eat heart healthy now." I told her what it was and she said, well, I could bring it for grandpa, since he had a cold.

      ??? Chicken soup??? What, even by CW standards, is heart unhealthy about chicken soup made from scratch?


      So today I visit, sans food, and I see her package of preseasoned chicken breasts thawing on the counter ... next to a 20 ounce Gatorade.

      (Was that heart healthy sugar bomb for her or my diabetic grandfather?)

      I could kill every one of those doctors. It's not even a funny story, it makes me so, so sad.

              I find tickling much more effective... That is, until he tickles back and my reflexes launch me straight off the sofa and onto the floor.. O.o

                Better than peeing on the couch...I know some people so ticklish, that's happened. Not on my couch, though.
                Most people don't realize how much energy it takes for me to pretend to be normal.

                • Yesterday, a friend of mine who is trying to lose weight, knowing that I've lost a lot of weight over the past year, decided to ask me for dietary advice. He informed me that instead of eating fast food for lunch like usual, he's been packing two or three peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and eating those instead. I must have winced as he told me this, because he said, "Well, what kind of meals do you eat?"

                  I told him that I had had a large plate of muscles for lunch that day with a salad, and that most mornings I like to have a three-egg omelette with peppers, tomatos, onion, some cheese, and sometimes bacon. His reply: "So basically what your saying is that you're going to die of a heart attack. That's the last time I ask you for dietary advice."

                    Sucks when they refuse to acknowledge that it works with you as living proof! I don't get how people can DO that!

                      Reply with "Rather die of a heart attack while looking good, than live overweight." or something simularly snarky.

                      If they are going to recoil like that might as well have fun with it.
                      If your food is fast, maybe you should fast.

                      • Before I heard about PB my nutritionist told me to eat meals that are 50% Carbs, I substituted that 50% for veges. I also used to eat at least 8 slices of bread a day as snacks.

                        She told me to make sure that I eat wholegrain bread, because "the little 'bits' in there will make you feel fuller, and they have more nutrients than normal bread". She got one thing right; the little bits make me feel fuller because they are harder to digest. Well, they are harder to digest, but they don't make me feel fuller. I still ended up eating about 5 sandwhiches each day in addition to meals, and still felt hungry.

                        This was on what has become my final appointment with her. Days later I found MDA and a few days later I started primal.

                          My boyfriend doesn't go on about what I eat because I will eat some bread and pasta when I'm at his house to make it easier on his mum when cooking, but I showed him the forum thinking he's be all for it and now he's terrified I'm going to get fitter than him. He's not very fit in the first place for understandable medical reasons, but a little support would be nice. When I told him I'd FINALLY found a way to shift my belly pudge?

                          How many of his 'understandable medical reasons' could be helped by switching to primal/paleo eating?

                            Anxiety, panic attacks, agroaphobia, manic depression... The majority of them. I've told him but 'It's a lifestyle change. I don't do lifestyles.' It's doing my head in because I know it would help but I can't force him x] When he can finally manage to come back to my house (We live about 20 miles apart, and he had a relapse back in September so he can't go to far from his house) he'll have to eat primal while he's here though, so I'm hoping he gets better soon x]

                                I like this idea a lot. I just might do that.
