    I treat fruit and honey the same. I don't get it when it often when it is winter and out of season, but when it is summer I will go on a crazy binge every now and then and just eat honey and fruit....

    Thanks Neckhammer! And I've actually been in ketosis for most of the time (I think), with most of my calories coming from animal fat and coconut oil. My only carbs were a handful of frozen berries in...

    I think the benefits of plant-based whole foods has more similarities to primal than either like to admit. Eating more whole food plant matter can increase health, no matter what. I'd probably go raw...

    Interesting, that is why I didn't want to be too judgmental on the process. It just seems that they are missing out on a key part of the movement, which is that final hip hinge.
