  • Primal Acronyms



    Thought this would be useful for future newcomers. Some that come to my mind right now:


    MDA = Marks Daily Apple

    SAD = Standard American Diet

    PUFAs = Poly Unsaturated Fatty Acids

    CW = Conventional Wisdom

    o-3 / n-3 / w-3 = Omega 3

    GC BC = Good Calories, Bad Calories (book by Gary Taubes)

    o-6-3 or o-6/o-3 = Omega 6 to Omega 3 ratio

    “Every saint has a past and every sinner has a future.” -Oscar Wilde
    "The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who have not got it." -George Bernard Shaw
    "The trouble with jogging is that the ice falls out of your glass." -Martin Mull

    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.

            "Korg" = The opposite of Grok = Non- Primals.

            Not exactly an acronym, but it took me a while to figure this one out.
