    What do you call yourself?

    when people ask you about your eating lifestyle, what do you say?

    You're a paleo/primal eater? I'm just curious because there are vegans and vegetarians. I don't know what to call myself like "I eat Paleo?"

    I say I avoid eating processed foods.

    Me too.
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    I eat real nutrient dense food, if they want to know, I will explain...usually they do not want to know and I could care less.
    Primal/Paleo is not for everyone, it's for those who have committed to understand.

    I look them in the eye and say "Ooga-booga. Caveman diet. Focused on complete nutrition from whole animals and plants, no grains or garbage." Or sometimes, just to see them turn pale, I tell them that I get most of my calories from animal fat, "like lard, but from a cow - it's called tallow." and watch them writhe in CW agony at the thought. I derive much pleasure from watching their little minds blow.
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    "I don't eat grains."
    "What do you eat?"
    "Meat, fruit, veggies, and healthy fats."
    "You eat fat!?"
    "Plenty of it. Bacon grease, butter, olive oil, and beef grease are the main ones."
    "That's not healthy!"
    "Works for me."
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"
