    I recently went on a 3 day backpacking trip at Dolly Sods Wilderness area in West Virginia. Campfires are allowed in existing rings, so I did not carry a stove. I had the same concern about missing...

    My concern is that this went out at my workplace from the fitness center staff. It is sad to me that the diet of so many here is so SAD, even when they are going out of their way to try to be...

  4. Best Rebuttal needed for Low Carb "Myth" statement

    I know that this is a straw man argument. It papers all "low carb" by attempting to shoot down "no carb".

    I need a polite and convincing response to this. Help?

    That's NOT Food (to me)

    First, as Leida says, it should get easier over time if you keep saying no. For me, the trick was to focus on "That's NOT Food". Sometimes, I would say "That's not food to me", to be less judging...

    Don't ignore the possibility of doing a meal where you leave out one component for yourself. The rest of my family is not primal, so my wife normally cooks things where the grains are optional.

    Since you said "girlfriend", not "ex-girlfriend", I will point out that what you heard may have been a plea for you to at least seriously consider her beliefs. Have...

    Chest freezer.
    NOT frost-free.
    Turn the temperature down. Your ice cream will be rock hard, rather than scoopable, but your meat will last a lot longer if properly wrapped.

    It doesn't say what the junk food meal was, but the purpose of the study purports to be understanding the difference between a Mediterranean diet vs. a "junk food diet".

    If it is already butchered and ready for pickup, then you probably don't have a lot of choice on the cuts. When you buy beef (or bison, etc), you make decisions that control whether certain parts...

    Wow, I am almost as encouraged by your stories as by my own. Please keep sharing.
  15. Unexpected Encouragement (Share your Wow moment here!)

    I have been working at the same company since October. I have been primal since mid December. That's about 6 months. I have lost almost 40 pounds, and I have gained some muscle and some functional...

    First, apologize. She has probably felt offended by some of your nagging. You can't force her to change.

    Next, it sounds like she eats some of what she does because of convenience. I agree with...

    Today, I am at 19 days without grains or refined sugars (beyond condiment quantities) and I have dropped from 254.5 to 240. That's 14.5 pounds in 19 days. Most days, it was an even 1 pound loss per...
