    One year ago today, I joined this forum, a few weeks after I'd bought the Primal Blueprint. Everything was new and exciting, I felt better than I had in a long time, and was heading for the skinniest...

    Sigh....here's a list of studies Episiotomy: Ritual Genital Mutilation in Western Obstetrics

    I interpreted your original post as "Don't believe Griff, he's not got enough initials, and he's disagreeing with all the people who have initials"

    Now you're framing what I said with the same absurd black-and-white judgment that you used originally. I'm not saying you shouldn't believe MDs/PhDs...I'm saying that you should read everything...

    Why do you assume that PhDs or MDs are automatically correct/worth listening to and an individual with no initials after his name is incorrect/not worth listening to? The initials don't make people...

    You can thicken gravy by reduction, particularly if it has veggies in it. Or add a potato and mash it in. Or, at a pinch, arrowroot.

    I make gravy that is definitely not "just broth" and I don't...

    My husband thinks like that too. He amazes me...he can decide to change something, and just DOES IT. No angst, no struggle.

    So I think I agree with you....addiction is nonsense IF you have the...

    Why is gravy in your 20%? What's non-primal about gravy? Rich, meaty, fatty elixir that it is :)

    Aside from PB, the single most important thing that helped me is the book "The Four Day Win". It has a chapter about how the childlike "just wanna have fun" side of us can end up in a battle with the...

    I don't eat grains any more. When I was first starting out I felt like a life without grains would be so hard. The reality now is that I really don't miss them.

    I'm a cancer survivor too. And it's entirely possible I'm only alive today because of medical testing/treatment.

    But I'm about *this* close to eschewing modern medicine for all but the most acute...

    I don't think dietary changes change blood chemistry very fast. You've only been primal for a month, right? Stick with the program and have your blood drawn again in 6 months. Those numbers would be...

    Is it just me, or are people getting more and more judgmental?

    Actually, I don't think they are. I think Wilton is showing his age. The older generation's role in society (now and in the past) is...

    Just got mine too. I've only tasted the almond one (don't care for peanuts) and in a testament to the effect of primal on my taste buds, found it overpoweringly sweet. The flavor and consistency was...
