[QUOTE=MamaGrok;535797]Chocotaco, I think the reason you see "carb phobia" is because there are a LOT of us who can't tolerate the moderate amount you can without weight gain and many other symptoms. Whether we have metabolic problems, dysbiotic guts, or something else wrong, it's not at all uncommon.
I think that for the most part, you could probably assume that most people who appear "carb phobic" are in this camp. It is a real issue, and the more the two camps understand each other, the more we can help more people find what healthy is for them. It's equally important for me to understand that moderate amounts of primal carbs are beneficial to you, as for you to understand that those same carbs are harmful to me, at this stage of my life - a stage I certainly hope will not last forever.[/QUOTE]

Yep, I'm over there too!
I just read this entire thread in almost one sitting. *falls over*
[QUOTE=naiadknight;460870]I can't read Cosmo much anymore. It's just aimed for a demographic I'm no longer in (late teens- earlys 20s, most likely in college, and single). Being in my mid-20s, actually on my career path, and married takes me out of those demographics. I still read Glamour occasionally, and have a subscription to Marie Claire, but there really isn't a magazine (that I've found) aimed at young married women without children who have a career. Then again, I'm also the kind of girl that reads Wired, Popular Science, Popular Mechanics, and PCWorld, as well as several technical journals and Slashdot, so I'm not exactly a common demographic.[/QUOTE]
I know I'm a few months late to the periodical party, but have you read BUST? It's my favorite ;0)
[QUOTE=DemonGraveWolf;505573]The vet doesn't seem to have a problem, but they don't seem to know much at all or sell any rabbit food.[/QUOTE]
No need for purchased bunny food--orchard or timothy hay available at all times and veggie scraps galore is all that's needed. There's no such thing as "too many veggies" when it comes to leafy stuff, though we limit starchies like carrots and sugary fruits. Wild bunnies eat grass and greens =). Pelleted food was made for putting weight on fryer rabbits quickly. Fat pet bunnies are no bueno!
The men behind me are moaning and groaning about how they cant eat the chicken skins on their food, then the biggest of them got up and ordered cookies from the cashier. -_-'

What's a raveler?
I love this thread! Okay, I have one to add:
Overheard in this morning while waiting for Bar class to start(it's a ballet/isometric-movement-based class)
Receptionist: You know it's better to eat a donut for breakfast than nothing
Me: Um, all those sugar and carbs without any protein will hit your bloodstream like a sledgehammer and cause a big insulin spike--skipping a meal would cause your body less stress.
Receptionist: [I][withering look][/I] Actually, I got that tip from [I]Shape[/I].
[I]Shape[/I] is to CW fitness what the [I]Bible[/I]was to Martin Luther. DO NOT QUESTION THE FITNESS MAGAZINE!

I thought it was a raving reveler. Makes for an exciting party.
