On the stress macro: it's because a lot of people are still coming in with Diet-mode engaged. It takes a while to grow out of that, if one ever does. There are still some "veteran" Primal folks around here that I would say still treat the whole thing like a Diet instead of a diet (as in the way you eat, not a way to achieve weight loss). If that makes sense.

Currently trying to figure out WTF to eat (for IBS-C).
WEll, you know, it's like watching a train wreak. Again, and again, and again . . . It's still fascinating.
Dude, I think you were reading the same shit I was reading earlier that led to my ranting. I think I'm going to steal the 4th macro thing and start using it myself(as usual, all my good material comes from you or Patrick). The whole "Diet Mentality" is a big part of the problem. If I ever use the word I mean it simply as the food we are designed to eat, like "a lions diet is a gazelle." I think some of the stress comes from the fact if your on a diet there are things you can't eat. I can eat anything I want. There are things I don't eat. There is a big difference in how you think about it. I'm not denied anything. I eat anything I want. It just so happens that what I want makes me healthy too.
