  • The new Indian takeaway shop near my work just put a sign on the sidewalk stating:

    We cook all our food in Rice Bran Oil for your health

    Where to begin?

    • LOL our local chip shop had a sign saying cooked in healthy canola oil a few years back!

      • I had someone at work (who has seen me lost 45 pounds this year, mind) tell me that I must be just lucky to have one of "those" kind of metabolisms.

        I had to show her the picture of me at last year's Christmas party, because she couldn't remember when I was vegetarian and huge. She still doesn't believe me, and accused me of getting a stomach staple.

          It started off with someone saying that people eat too much meat in this country and then went downhill from there. The worst it got is when they started talking about the China Study as the epitome of studies showing people shouldn't eat meat and even discussing several perpetuating myths of meat eating including that it takes calcium from your bones and is linked to early onset osteoporosis. Then, aside from the China Study, they started quoting and talking about how awesome Forks Over Knives was.

          While this may be kinda sorta true, I have been reading Wheat Belly and there is a chapter in the book which talks about this. Meat creates a sort of acid imbalance in your Ph and your body in an attempt to bring that back to normal leaches calcium from your bones. However eating veggies sorta neutalizes this as they tend to create an alkaline state.

          This is very simplified but the gist of it.
          I find your lack of bacon disturbing.

A year and a half later and still consistently within a couple of pounds +/- of my original goal weight. It's like people are disappointed when you DON'T fail.
            Well to be fair, if you stopped being primal and went back to your previous diet you probably would put the weight back on, wouldn't you?

                I have heard that one too...although some people are questioning the whole PH thing. As you pointed out meat and two veg balance out very nicely. I understand one of the worst acid culprits are grains.
                Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

                • Just a little vent! I feel like everyone has been trying to push SAD food on me all day. Cakes this morning in work, mince pies this afternoon..in work....and the mother in law wanting me to have fish n chips with her tonight!!

                  No thanks....Ahh go on....no i'm alright, honestly...just one.....no thanks......ahh why not? You've lost loads of weight, you might as well....i don't want it!

                  I'm not 100% angelic on this way of life, i'd say i run at 90-95% most of the time, but that other 5-10% are my choice, it's not down to someone else!

                  I feel like i have said no to food about 12 times today. I know these people are only doing it to make themselves feel better as well.

                  Thanks, i feel a bit better for ranting haha!!

                    The difference is the distinction between making a dietary change and "going on a diet".

                    Not to mention a recurrence of breast cancer. Those of us facing major health issues have an easier time with not "cheating". It just isn't worth it.

                    Ya, Davis has a point about the hybridized wheat being bad for you but this point was where he lost me. The old, "Meat makes your body acidic", thing is leftover vegan propaganda with no basis in fact. The acid/alkaline balance in the body is tightly controlled and no particular food affects it that much. (except of course when we start messing with it chemically with things like Tums.)

                    And, Hulahoop, feel free to rant anytime. A good rant is just what you need sometimes.

                    • Its true that your body tightly controls your acid/alkaline balance. But if you eat too much acidic foods will it not have to go to extra ends to keep it controlled as compared to eating highly alkaline foods then it wont have to work so hard at it. That's my take on it anyway.

                        Your stomach is already naturally way more acidic than any meat could ever be. The only way people who are caught up in the whole ph balance thing measure is by urine acidity. Well that is only measuring the excess that is being excreted. The ph actually inside your stomach hasn't changed a bit. The body is wonderfully self regulating.

                        Eating a whole lot of alkaline foods could actually have the Tums effect. It would dilute the stomach acid thereby making digestion less effective. Not enough acid makes food sit there and start to ferment and bubble upwards. This is what causes reflux problems, insufficient acidity not excess acidity. Reflux is often cured simply by adding a swig of ACV before meals.

                        • Going gluten-free pretty much fixed any reflux issues I had. I used to not be able to sleep sometimes, it was that bad.

                          And you're right, PB. Those of us with specific health issues don't have much choice about being strict. I don't ever want to go back to how I felt eating wheat.

                            Exactly.

                            Ask my mom how wonderful a low acid stomach is. She's had h. pylori causing ulcers TWICE in the past 5 years due to low acid making it flourish. The first time, she ended up in the hospital for a week. The second time, she lost about 20% of her body weight. And yet, she continues to take Tums almost every day.

                            Your stomach is supposed to be acidic.

                            • So there I was leaving my local Planet Fitness at about 6:30 am in the morning when I was nice enough to hold the door for the girl carrying in the bagels for free bagel tuesday or what ever the hell they call it. And apparently I missed pizza monday.
