Hoo boy, Maba, good find! I've got issues amongst my own friends and family, but I am able to eat how I wish and that certainly rules out grains! Getting this Paleo/Primal WOE rolling within my own home has been a challenge, but I am being rational. My wife is a near Weston A Price Foundation eater and that is many times far removed from the Standard American Diet!
With our first child due in mid April, I am perhaps all too laser-focused on nutrition as my wife build a little human! And I am insisting in the proper diet for both mother and child! NOT to the point of militant reactionary haranguing (Karlin, cut me some slack! Wink wink!)
I'll take it as a victory to fully adopt a WAPF based Paleo-diet in our home. But I will constantly push for no less than full Paleo as I eat.
Grains processed and consumed to WAPF level would be such a big pain in the butt, it'd be easy to just give 'em up!
Acmebike, I try to be as Primal as I can but with a flexitarian husband(he used to be vegetarian until recently), some of my meals tend to be on the WAPF side. And my thinking is very much like yours. I'll consider it a success if, when we have a family, we do a WAPF-based Paleo diet. But when I'm pregnant, I want to make sure I'm 90% Primal/Paleo.
PC, "blockquote" to start and "/blockquote" to end ... just replace the quotes with < & >.
The comments on that page made me so annoyed that I had to actively restrain myself from walking in with a big can of logical whoop-ass. But then I realized how sad it is that so many people just swallow CW whole, without even thinking about it. *sigh*
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.
