    Fair warning... I ate 6-8 eggs a day for about a year and have now developed a serious intolerance and aversion to them! :( Of course, I had some pretty serious digestion and gut damage done prior.

    I second Portland! And in response to the crime - crime is virtually non-existant, at least when looking at cities of comparable size.

    Not sure if this has already been mentioned - but Starbucks is pretty great for flying. There's (at least) one in every airport, and they now have fresh fruit, almonds (get the unsweetened), cashews...

    I've carried this off successfully for over a year as a college student! It sucks sometimes, but I wouldn't have it any other way.

    I NEVER refer to the way I eat as paleo, although a few people...

    I live in the dorms and do it just fine, I spend approx. $200 a month on food, and that's with all grass-fed beef, local veggies, and coconut oil+milk. I could do it cheaper with conventional meat,...

    Bacon grease, any nut oil (though expensive, like avocado), and yup - palm oil! Not sure on the kernel part though, I think palm is just fine as long as it's unrefined.

    Of course, being primal for almost a year, I want to say "NOO!! GRAINS ARE EEEVILL". Which, I mean, of course they are!

    Lol... Please just actually read what Primal is before asking questions, you'll save both of us LOTS of time.

    Perfect! Year-round?! Ah, that's wonderful.

    Also, I was in town last week and wandered the Tenleytown to find this illustrious $17/lb grass-fed beef, and was pleasantly surprised! Although I...

    I agree! Fasting is great, but when you've only just given up all the bad stuff, it's easy to binge on that, as opposed to avocados/coconut oil.

    I've been doing surprisingly well! After my first...

    Wow.. Sorry I was so surprised, Whole Paycheck here only charges $7.99/lb, and that's the highest I've ever seen it! Looks like I'll have to go back to grain-fed meat..

    Thank you all for your...

    Ha! I know there is life outside it. It's the cost of living that worries me ;)

    I'm sorry, $15-$19 for ground beef?! Really?!

    How did it go for everyone else? My carb cravings were insane, ended up having a peeled sweet potato and some fruit. Ordered my L-Glutamine today and I'll be grocery shopping for...

    It's homemade, I'm not exactly the *most* meticulous person, so I figure trace amounts still get into it. Honestly, not worth scooping out all the casein/dairy for an hour just to have butter back in...

    I'm a little bit younger than you guys, but I'll join in too! 18, college sophomore, Pacific NW for now - moving out to DC in about 3 weeks though!

    Oh, and I've been primal for about 9 months now.

    Okay.. I get adding in Bacon/Nightshades, but I think keeping dairy "in" really throws off the whole point of Whole 30. Otherwise, you're just doing normal primal eating..?
