  • Bunch of nurses talking about some fad diet, actually mentioned glycogen depletion. I said, "Also sprinting, really great way to use up glycogen!" And they looked at me like I just dropped baby Jesus on his head, lol.

      Heh. Runners world mentions glycogen all the time, because depleting it would be bad which is why you are supposed to eat sonny carbs.

      They also have diet and recipe advice for losing weight, vegetarians, and gluten free- which I thought might have something good but the anti meat people must have invaded that too because no such luck.

        Your stomach is supposed to be acidic.
        QUITE, this is still such blasphemy in the medical profession because doctors can not admit their mistakes, even to themselves. Just like statins, acid reducers are still the standard of practice and worth billions in revenue.

                Most people don't realize how much energy it takes for me to pretend to be normal.

                If I wanted to listen to an asshole, I'd fart.

                  Ahh, that is probably different. Haven't seen those, but I don't spend that much time in the cereal aisle.

                    I don't care if there are unlabeled gluten-free sausages in other supermarkets or other countries. That's not relevant to me because I can't buy them.

                    Sorry if my response to you was abrasive, but you came across to me as smug and condescending (and wrong). Thus, my post.
                    I don't mean to offend anyone, but as someone who makes, buys, and consumes a LOT of sausage, I need to say: If your sausage even has a list of ingredients, IT IS NOT PRIMAL Find a market or butcher that makes sausage on site or make it yourself. I prefer bulk over stuffed so don't let that stop you. As with most primal foods, you will notice the difference. Don't skimp on the fat. Pork, back fat, is $1/ pound.
                    magicmerl, didn't mean to single you out, just was referencing the conversion about sausage ingredients. Maybe the post with the list of ingredients, from hotdogs, would have been better.

                        I didn't read the earlier posts, but....another option, is to go to a good butcher and ask for some nice coarsely ground pork - make sure it's not too lean. Mix in your own spices (loads of recipes online) and form into patties. For 10 minutes worth of work you can have custom sausage, and really control what goes into it. Yummy. It can also cost half the price. (I know it's one more thing to do, but I'd do 5-6llbs of it and have some in the freezer).

                        I'm so sick of reading labels on things that shouldn't even have labels. It's so out of control.

                        Also, a good butcher won't be shocked when you don't want something extra lean. They know that fat carries flavor and moisture.

                          And don't forget the feasts! I cooked a couple in my day with the SCA. Such fun. But you also have to be willing to put up some a lot of what I will call "douche baggery". Some of those people take things wayyyyy too seriously. But most people are nice and it is fun. You just have to take some of the people with a grain of salt.

                            Hahaha. Thanks for the heads up on that. Do they also teach how to brew mead? If so that'd take the "cake" (ingredients to "the cake" coconut flour, coconut milk, & bacon)

                              We've managed to train our butcher up now and he leaves bones, fat, rind, etc. in place. This week he was on holiday so we just got standard processing from the replacement guy. The sausages were very noticeably breadier (won't make that mistake again!) and there was hardly any fat on the pork. Did you know they take the skin off the roasting joint, cut out most of the fat, then stick the skin back on? We didn't till he did it in front of us one time and we stopped him.
