    I have long suspected that I might have something along the lines of Asperger's syndrome. Very poor social skills, lack of empathy, unable to look at anyone's face without wanting to scream and run away. But able to function reasonably well in society. I just took an online test, which I answered the way I would have most of my life. The score was 31, which is in the range of borderline autism.

    But . . . I now feel fairly comfortable looking at people's faces. Sometimes I even enjoy it. And I feel lots of empathy and am getting much better at interaction. This wasn't a gradual thing like maturing. Mostly it has been since pretty much fully doing Primal.

    I can't see any reason for this change except getting plenty of vitamin D and saturated fat. Really, I was already doing the rest of Primal before I heard about it. Just doing other things, like carbs, exercise and rest, a bit better.

    Whatever the reason, yay!
    Ancestral Health Info

    I design websites and blogs for a living. If you would like a blog or website designed by someone who understands Primal, see my web page.

    Primal Blueprint Explorer My blog for people who are not into the Grok thing. Since starting the blog, I have moved close to being Archevore instead of Primal. But Mark's Daily Apple is still the best source of information about living an ancestral lifestyle.

    Oh yes Hedonist I have to totally agree with you. I also took that test and had the score of 27. For years I thought I was just 'boring' as I was never comfortable in social situations and it was more than just shyness. Since changing my diet I have definately noticed I am calmer and feel more relaxed and confident when joining in conversations. My mind is clearer and I am much less tired. Not bad considering I am 54 today !!

    I can drink red wine without stuffed-up sinuses and headache for the first time in several years ... and I'm only 3 weeks Primal!

Lets face it: WHY ELSE WOULD DIABETES DOCTORS FORCE A HIGH CARB DIET ON THEIR PATIENTS? These are NOT stupid people. The MUST know that high carbs = high blood sugar. Right or wrong? We need whistle blowers to go after this conspiracy.

    Yup he might be a bit of a hack, but guess what ? With all of the excess weight he is carrying he is probably at high risk for developing diabetis. THEN he'll be interested!

    Here is a WEIRD bonus, reported by my favorite Dr. Davis.

    Can I see your linea alba ?


    He is frequently seeing something he haven't seen in years: the linea alba.

    I'm not a doctor, but you seem much too young for thos kinds of issues. knowledge is power, I'd get it looked at if I were you, (or recommend it strongly if you were my brother!)

    Still waiting on that, but I have definition on the sides of my abs (bottom too, if I suck in!)
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

    It is more defined now... can't wait for it to look something like that, with oblique definition like naiadknight mentioned.

    Sauteed carrots last night - they tasted ridiculously sweet to me now - more like sweet potatoes. In fact, I am thinking of doing mashed carrots with butter instead of sweet potatoes for T-giving this year. And I certainly won't need to add brown sugar.

    Yeah. Don't things taste so much stronger?
