The key is having a positive view of the benefits of primal vs a deprivation mindset. If we think, consciously or subconsciously, that we are unfortunate, deprived of our goodies, then wandering off the path is inevitable. Griff, your health issues clarified this beyond question, and in that I agree you are lucky. It took me a while to move out of the deprivation thinking, but now it is easy. A friend said he thinks of his food like his money, either he is investng wisely or throwing good after bad; he is banking on good health. As a person in my sixties I can assure you that is wisdom.
This time, like all times, is a very good one, if we but know what to do with it. Ralph Waldo Emerson
Any given day you are surrounded by 10,000 idiots. Lao Tsu, founder of Taoism
