  • I just returned from a month-long yoga training in which I heard the phrases "oh but it's natural sugar, so it's good for you" and "I eat lots of small meals to keep my metabolism going" more times than any sane person could stand without going apeshit. Thankfully, I was doing a lot of meditation, so I was able to just bite my tongue most of the time. The one time I did challenge someone on the "many small meals" concept--and it wasn't even a challenge, they were simply picking on me for not eating breakfast--"WHAT?! But you have to fire up your metabolism!!"--I'd had a huge dinner the night before and wasn't hungry that morning--I got SHOT DOWN with the fire of a thousand suns. CW-brainwashed hardcore vegans do NOT like being told that there is zero scientific evidence, and actually negative evidence, for how they eat.

    I had an amazing month of yoga and mindfulness and peace and love, but man, it's nice to be back among people who know what's up when it comes to food/exercise.

    • I'm sure everyone has their own encounter like this, but last Saturday at the market:

      Me: Excuse me, is your Greek yogurt full-fat or non-fat?
      Vendor (with a huge smile): It has ZERO fat!
      Me: Nevermind, I don't want that.

      Thankfully I did find the place that had the full-fat stuff. Sooo good.

        Haven't you gotten the memo?

              He yelled at you? For that? Is he a vegan? If so, just slap him around a bit. Vegans can't hold enough muscle mass to handle the average person.
              In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.

                Dear retailers: "It has ZERO fat" is no longer a selling point. Get the message?
                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.

                  No, but in our culture, meat before lunch is a big taboo.

                  • I was having breakfast with my sister (not common, as I no longer live at home or in fact like her) and she's recently been following slimming world so was surprised when she had bacon and eggs.


                    She then proceeded to cut all the visible fat off the bacon...

                    ...and followed it with a big bowl of Special K

                      The burning question: Did you take her scraps off her plate? Can't let good pork fat go to waste.
                      Are you a college student, trying to navigate college while being Primal? Do you know any other PB college students on a tight budget? Heck, for that matter, are YOU trying to live Primal on a budget? Enroll at Primal University!

                      For after all what is man in nature? A nothing in relation to infinity, all in relation to nothing, a central point between nothing and all and infinitely far from understanding either.

                          At Parris Island we drank upwards of 16 canteens (1qt) of water daily. I survived.

                            Agree.

                            In the summer I drink upwards of 2 gallons of water just while I'm working, in addition to coconut water, and also iced tea when I get home.

                            • My neighbor, who (including her kids) is celiac, wants to become a vegetarian. She read the China Study and swears by it. Funny part is, she said she would become vegetarian except she doesn't know how to cook vegetarian. Yep, she's dumb.

                              • Gah!

                                I'm on another totally unrelated message board, and someone posted that they needed a great butter substitute. There were quite a few people going on about how great "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter", canola oil and various other crap is. There were a few rooting for real butter, but even they were saying to cut back - seriously, to half a stick a month???

                                When asked why she needed to cut back, she said her mom had a heart attack. Well, I'm pretty sure it wasn't the butter, but I gently suggested she stick with real butter, preferably from grass-fed cows. Avoid seed oils because (among other things) they turn rancid very quickly. And that good fat doesn't cause heart disease.

                                I'm waiting for the flame throwers from the low-fat crowd there.
