    Sorry to hear you are having problems tracking down. For some reason the brits are very accepting of full fat yog!
    I went shopping today at Shaws (owned by Jewel-Osco / Albertsons) and found a few unflavored varieties of Full 10-12% fat yogurt, including Greek. I didn't partake because the carbs were around 12g a serving, but I certainly will make it a every-other-day standard once I get to my ideal weight.

      The sugars listing is misleading as the bacteria continue eating the sugar in the yoghurt while you have it in your fridge....so the longer you wait the less sugar is actually in there.

        I do the same thing on my college campus wearing my Vibrams all day. I haven't gotten any negative attention though, at least not directly to me (I can be pretty imposing) at 6' and 220lbs

        • Hubby had his first CW moment as a semi-primalist today. We were hanging with our friends at the zoo, and they had an entire bag (like grocery plastic bag) of suckers. They offered our Grace one, and we let her have it as a special treat. Their kids were munching through them like pill poppin addicts. Grace just finished hers an hour or two ago.

          • I bought cream at Whole Foods and the cashier said, "That must be for your coffee." As if there's no reason in the world a person in her right mind (who was clearly health-conscious enough to shop at Whole Foods) might be buying cream! I told her I don't drink coffee; it's for making my yogurt.

              LOL, I would have said "No, I just think it tastes good." and make that creepy slurping Hannibal Lector noise

              • My grandson who is almost 2 years old was visiting over the Easter holidays and was asking for milk. I don't buy much milk but my husband likes to eat cereal every so often. Thought I had some, but when I looked all I saw was unsweetened coconut milk and heavy cream. Mixed the two and he emptied his cup in one long gurgle and was asking for more. Got some side looks from my daughter in law, but she didn't ask and I didn't tell.

                • I have 4 housemates and none of them seem to understand PB. They all eat excessive amounts of bread and cereal, one even went on the special k "diet". They all seem to think they're being healthy by eating pasta and brown bread and in excessive portions. How a bowl of spag bol at 10pm then rolling in to bed an hour later can be good for I don't know. My shelf of the fridge is meat and green veg, theirs are full of jars of curry sauces and pasta sauces.
                  One gave up bacon because it's "unhealthy" and then has ketchup on EVERYTHING. I mean everything, pizza, risotto, roast dinner.

                  And apparently my lack of carbs in the CW sense is unhealthy...

                  • My coworker was telling me how dry his skin has gotten lately. I asked if he eats any fats, like salmon, avocado even olive oil. He said no, his wife has told him to avoid all fats - CW at its finest. I suggested he lightly sauté veggies in olive oil, and to try eating fish once in a while. He replied, "I could start eating potato chips again, maybe one bag a week... Is that enough oil?" Ack! I tried really hard to explain the difference in fats... I think he understood.

                    I worry about him because all he eats all day is a huge bag of fruit.

                      Thats really sad; even before I was into saturates I knew that mono was good. Poor guy. Makes you want to cook him a huge primal feast.

                      I know so many people who try to eat a fat free (ie high carb) diet. What they all seem to have in common is lethargy, poor motivation and always being hungry. It seems such a sorry existence. CW tells us that the healthy foods don't taste good and anything that tastes good is bad for you. Thats so wrong cos surely the primal man would never have eaten anything that tasted bad or of nothing. I cannot for instance fathom how vegetable oil can be healthy when it tastes of nothing at all at best and of petrol at worst. Eating CW healthy foods is punishment for the taste buds.

                      • Had another one today.

                        Just called my mom to tell her she can't have Coke at my house anymore when she visits. I like to wear "name brand" t-shirts. I'm wearing a coke-a-cola shirt. The toddler comes over & touches the words "Mommy, Soooooda!"
                        AHAHAHA!
                        NOT OKAY, lol

                        • My boss has been having digestive issues. I told her I had made a lot of dietary changes, like eliminating grains and dairy, and would be happy to talk id she wanted. Two weeks ago she told me she's spent $750 out of pocket on a naturpath who told her she needed to eliminate wheat and dairy. I felt like sending her a bill. TODAY however, she came in and ate goldfish crackers and two pouches of those horrid Tree Top fruit snacks ( yes, that's what the kids are served in our church nursery. I have been trying to get that changed all of the 13 years I have worked here with very little and short lived success). I wanted to smack my head into a wall.

                          • while eating a hard-boiled egg and avoiding the yolk, my son gleefully informed me that the white of the egg is the healthy part. apparently this was a PSA courtesy of my aunt. ugh...

                            though, this is the same kid who watched a commercial for "heart-healthy" oatmeal and said "what?!? that's not healthy! they should eat sausage for breakfast." so i guess i'm getting through to him.

                            • The other day, I made 'fudge' by melting down and mixing unsweetened 100% cocoa (the baking bar type) and coconut milk, with an ample amount of cinnamon, almonds, and coconut flakes - completely unsweetened. I took the container to work (about a pint or so in all) and proceeded lopping it down by the spoonful while first one boss, then another, came by to stare, then several curious coworkers gathered round asking 'are you eating... that whole container of pure fat?'.

                              On another day, same thing happened - when for lunch I downed two whole avocados plain (just peeled them and ate them like hard-boiled eggs) with a side of a six-inch salami, plain..

                              But the best was when I brought my six whole egg yolks to work, and poured them all over my huge green salad with chunks of beef and grilled venison as a dressing, and poured myself a half-cup of heavy cream for 'dessert' in the staff kitchen. I swear my coworkers (happily scarfing muffins and lean cuisine) practically fell over, one had to hold onto the counter saying they were having a heart attack just looking at my nosh!

                              I guess it's especially a shocker seeing as I'm a 5'3, 50-kilo female

                              And then just remembering some of the discussions that surface... such as my marathon-running overweight coworker telling me how it's bad for you to give up flour, and unless you have Celiac's it's absolutely necessary to eat grains to be healthy. And my other coworker - also overweight, vegetarian, living off (as far as I've seen for the past six months) purely simple carbs, tells me that your body 'needs carbs for energy' or else you'll die. And then the third coworker, who is obese and been trying to lose weight for a year or two (without any visible changes), trying to convince me that if I just switch over to eating like her, it will do my health 'wonders' - ie. a smidgeon of low-fat processed tuna-esque spread between two squares of whole-grain bread, followed an hour later by a bagel with low fat blueberry cream cheese, apple juice, and homemade cupcakes...

                                LOL its so frustrating isn't it yet I think, like me, you kind of enjoy upsetting the apple cart a bit . Its fun!! I am being told all the time that I should not go so long without food, that its harmful, carbs are essential blah de blah and that if I am not hungry after the gym - which I am sometimes not -then I am obviously not working hard enough :/. Yeah okay... But I'm not hungry so why should I eat?! I eat my brekkie and am not normally hungry till 1pm, even when I start work at 7am. Everyone around me seems to be constantly eating - I mean CONSTANTLY and permanently looking for the next bit of food - but never satisfied and now they are trying to fatten me up as well, or it feels like that!! Its like, I don't have time to be having to think about food every two hours.
