    That's an awesome expression of the Primal mindset. I routinely walk through the bread aisle now and all I can think is "poison, poison, poison."
    Primal eating in a nutshell: If you are hungry, eat Primal food until you are satisfied (not stuffed). Then stop. Wait until you're hungry again. Repeat.

    This is completely vain, but sometimes I want to tell non-believers to compare their body to mine to see whose plan is most effective. When I tell them I do minimal cardio and intense weight lifting just a few times a week for only about a half hour, I usually gain some clout and they'll give a second thought to those "healthy whole grains" :-)

    When I first started PB i tried to spread the word. I was very enthusiastic about sharing my vegetarian habits when that was my thing.
    Partly I keep my mouth shut because being so wrong about vegetarianism has humbled me. But mostly I dont say anything because people are surprisingly more offended by abstaining from grains/sugar than meat. It's gotten to the point where I hope people DONT ask me what Im doing cause I'm not versed enough in the science and dont want to fumble around with my explanation. Just started reading the vegetarian myth and GCBC is in the mail, so maybe Ill be better prepared in the future.

    I have told several people about how and why I eat the way I do.
    I have made a presentation, gave it to some people in my office.
    Unfortunately, people say that they like the thoroughness in the slides, but they still would not do it.
    Its difficult to change, when everybody else is doing the opposite.
    For people who are convinced, their family prevents them from implementing anything.

    I am wondering, how can their family prevent them from implementing things into their own life?

    My hubby eats low carb, but not primal. I do make him some home made bread each week and after we slice it, we freeze part of it because of the lack of preservatives it goes back really fast...........

    We eat a lot of the same things, but he does eat some beans, legumes and grains that I do not eat............

    That is each of one of our choice to eat the way we each do.

    I don't get the whole control thing...........

    It's not magic, it's a lifestyle choice.........whatever works for the individual is the key to sustained weight loss. It's definitely healthier for sure (no grain) but extreme low carb isn't any more effective calorie for calorie than a high protein diet with moderate carbs for losing weight. I love the lifestyle for the most part. The only thing I don't agree with Mark is on the consumption of carbs.

    I just tell people I don't eat any grains and limit dairy for health reasons.

    Take it slow. Explain sugar and seed oil avoidance first. Also explain that the primal diet is a very appetite suppressing diet.
