    Actually I think we're all in agreement that BPA is bad...
    5'0" female, 44 years old. Started Primal October 31, 2011, at a skinny fat 111.5 lbs. Low weight: 99.5 lb on a fast. Gained back to 115(!) on SAD chocolate, potato chips, and stress. Currently keeping food tracker.

    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.

    I ate X diet and got Y results, and if you eat X diet, you will get Y results, too. You WILL get them someday. I swear. I would know, because it happened to me, and what happens to me is the exact same thing that will happen to every other human being to ever exist on the face of this planet in the history of all time forever.

    Great stuff joanie. I was thinking of writing something similar in a multi-choice question style, but I think yours is more betterer.
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    TQP: I find for me that nutrition is much more important than what I do in the gym.

    Birkenstocks & hairy arm pits.
    If my post got folks to smile, way good.

    If it saved one newbie from running to the nearest Carvel, after being "advised" 20 things that don't agree, even better.

    Shamelessly bumping this up (just once) for the noobs.

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

    I certainly can't be the only one who thought the original post had no point.

    Maybe you're not familiar with "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy"?

    I found Joanie's post amusing and apropos.

    Alas the most intelligent animal on the planet can't figure out how to feed itself.

    The scientists who produce food are always going to outnumber and outpace the scientists who identify what's in the food so we just slip further behind.

    It was here. This kind of contradictory advice has been around since I joined. The topics change a bit (some of them, anyways) but there's always people here looking at different research are reading different blogs for different ideas that may work better than what they are currently doing.

    It's only a bad things for the newbies who get sucked into it, and for the people that take it personally, which is where the stupidity tends to happen.
