    There are a lot of things we eat and a lot of things we do or use that aren't "primal," but they are in line with the spirit of Primal.

    That was part of my impetus to get healthy. Knowing that I may have to work until the day I die left me feeling that I really needed to get it together. I don't mind doing so. I simply need to be...

    When all else fails, they blame genetics. It's never the SAD. It's simply "bad genes." You just got lucky enough to have "good genes." Yeah...right.

    More time would be good, as things have really improved. Your triglycerides were already low, but your HDLs are now in a good place. Have you considered asking for a VAP test? At least then you...

    I rarely drink coffee or (caffeinated) tea anymore. If I have a cup of coffee, I feel as if I could bounce off the walls. I used to drink copious amounts daily.
