    I take chromium throughout the day to keep my sugars on an even keel. You might think about that.

    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.

    Mr. Meso, congrats on going Primal. Just one observation: watch out for the oils in mayo, try to stick to the ones made of olive oil.

    Best of lucks!

    @Ailu - (Long post - bring a snack)

    My symptoms with what I call "glucopathy" (Self-coined phrease) - Hmmm .. how much time you got, I'll list just a FEW of them LOL ...

    For me they mimic panic attacks ... their "residue" mimics depression.

    - Weakness

    - Shakiness

    - Sweating

    - Faintness

    - Everything goes blurry, or dark, or even white (like fog)

    - there are tons of more symptoms but mine are right in line with yours, and are something I've lived in TOTAL fear of.

    I'll be willing to wager that 70% of people with panic disorder and depression are really just "glucopaths." Having trouble with unnatural carbs.

    When you say you feel like death is imminent, I can TOTALLY relate - I've often thought ... "This is what dying must feel like!"

    Sometimes recovery can take even a whole day, which really sucks!

    I've been lucky enough to have a biology/pre-med background, so I knew enough to know something was wrong.

    The Doctors in their omnipotent glory, diagnosed me with panic disorder and depression in the late 80's and what followed was MASSIVE Rx for Xanax, Anti-Depressants ...

    It was after YEARS of high Xanax intake and Anti-Depressants that my endocrine system finally went into a total shut down - where I went from 230lbs or so to 588lbs - I blame a lot of this on the meds ...

    I FINALLY forced the doctors into giving me a 5 hour glucose tolerance test - they agreed only because they figured I was a hypochondriac and that would "shut me up."

    I lasted 30 minutes into the test ... glucose went to 300 then crashed to 45. The doctors knew I wasn't faking :-)

    I'll never forget my girlfriend laughing at me while I shoved a turkey sandwhich into my shaking mouth as soon as they pulled the IV out.

    All in all - the pharmaceuticals LOVE the fact that our society eats refined carbs - :-)

    @SerialSinner -

    Thanks for the advice - I'll try to watch the oils, right now, with fighting the weakness and stuff, I'm afraid to cut out those too LOL ...

    At least I'm not a "Cereal Sinner" anymore! :-)

    Thanks a lot for your help - I did have loads of Olive Oil this morning.

    I was just going to say the same thing about the mayo. Not that I want to kill that happy discovery for you, but 99% of all the mayo sold on a retail level is made with bad oils. The good news is that mayo is SUPER easy to make yourself and you can use olive oil. It's pretty parishable, so just make sure you make enough for whatever you want to use it for.

    @ Ailu - Pantothentic Acid Link -

    (Sorry - in my induction fog I forgot the link!)

    I'll paste it due to the fact the pub-med link is long and nasty! But you can search it at:


    Pantothenic acid as a weight-reducing agent: fasting without hunger, weakness and ketosis.

    Leung LH.

    Department of General Surgery, Hong Kong Central Hospital.

    With the conventional method of fasting or aggressive dieting to reduce excess body fat, hunger, weakness, ketogenesis and ketosis are the sequential events that follow. It is not fully understood why, under conditions of negative calorie balance where complete energy release from storage fat is critical, ketosis should arise with a concomitant wastage of energy. Here, I wish to propose a theory that relates the formation of ketone bodies under such conditions to a deficiency in dietary pantothenic acid. Supplementation of this vitamin would facilitate complete catabolism of fatty acids and thus the formation of ketone bodies could be circumvented. As a result, a sufficient amount of energy would be released from storage fat to relieve dieters of the sensation of hunger and weakness which otherwise would be difficult to endure. Hence, using this method for weight reduction together with a careful observation of calorie intake, I have great success in treating overweight-to-obese patients to lose weight.

    Thanks - yea I know my fat sources right now aren't smart - but I'm treading a fine line, hopefully once I'm "in" I can edit out the bad stuff -

    I ate terrible amounts of bad fats yesterday on my first day but still dropped 4.5 pounds overnight LOL ... imagine that?
