For you people watchers out there: watch kids when they eat sugar, or especially a sugary drink. I was once in a crowd with an ornery kid. Mom gave him, I think it was an orange soda, with a straw. The kid instantly went silent and thoughtful as he sucked down a good 16 oz of artificial goodness. I was stunned. It didn't look that different from a junkie shooting heroin.

I (try to) follow by-the-book primal as advocated by Mark Sisson, except for whey powder and a bit of cream. I advocate a two-month strict adjustment for newbies. But everybody is different and should tweak Primal to their own needs.
