    As a woman who's been married nearly 30 years ... NO, I don't see how "fucked up" that thought it.

    I've also never had to lose 100+ pounds ... maybe "fucked up" females stay thinner???

    As previously mentioned, weight loss is weird. Several years ago I lost 14 pounds, and not even the waistbands on my clothing were loose. I now weighed several pounds less than I had before I gained...

    Absolutely.

    We eat grains in our household, primarily pasta once or twice a week. But I cook from scratch and we eat very little sugar. Our diet, in fact, very much resembles the way Europeans eat...

    Our Whole Foods (Louisville, KY) sells both types: 100% grass-fed and grass-fed/grain-finished. The 100% grass-fed tends to sell out quicker. I think they're both locally sourced (meaning they're...

    I removed gluten products from my diet for several months, then added them back in with no problem. I used to live in Italy, and missed my pasta. :D
