Macrobiotics. Boy howdy.
I was just sitting here basking in the glow of being primal and thinking about stupid diet advice I wish I'd never heard like eating low fat and snacking constantly. I remember back in the late 80's and early 90's when low fat was thought to be the cure for everything. What a horrible, devastating idea that has been for our health and our waistlines in the US. And those 2 or 3 snacks a day only served to make me think of food constantly. Going primal has been so liberating on so many fronts.

What do you expect when a salesman gives nutritional advice.
Per doctor's recommendation, in 1982, went five months on 500cals per day, walking four miles every morning at 6am-- didn't cheat once! No one can tell me that weightloss is all about willpower. Laid a firm foundation for extreme insulin sensitivity. Set me up for a twenty-plus years of yo- yo diets until I read Atkins. There are lots of lives ruined by CW, and bad science.

Always eat breakfast.
I'm never hungry in the morning, but I ate anyway. And then I was hungry all day long. Of course, I was also following the advice to eat lots of small meals all day long, so I guess it worked out

My primal log
Eat more whole grains.
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"
