                What about MOAR and PEAT?

                Are they acronyms? THey have been tripping me up lately.

                (Happy Primal Birthday to me. I began this way of life one year ago).
                Began Primal Living: 25 Sep 2012
                Starting Weight: 82kg (180 lbs) - Lost 30 lbs since going Primal!

                  MOAR is just Internet slang for more, but an enthusiastic more+roar

                  Peat refers to the man Ray Peat

                    Thanks for the list. I had figured out (or googled) most acronyms by now, but this is definately helpfull, especially if english is not your first language. EVOO, CAFO and HIIT had me puzzled for a while...

                    a few additions:
                    GF can also be gluten free
                    BP = blood pressure
                    BLT = bacon lettuce and tomato (common sandwich changed into salad or wrap)
                    BLAT = bacon lettuce avocado tomato
                    YMMV = your mileage may vary

                    Comment


                    • BLEAT - bacon, lettuce, egg, avocado, tomato.

                      GF - girlfriend

                      • BLEAT sounds like it should have some sheep or goat in it

                        • Wow, thanks Danielrh
                          I was copying and pasting them all on a word doc and going to put in order later.....that helps. I am new and was lost half the time with so many acronyms in one post.

                              • Have read 21-day total body transformation and quite new in the Primal world, but canīt find what CAFO stands for. I understand it is "badly or wrongly fed and bred" animals, but I would like to know what the CAFO are in words... :-)
                                Thanks
