    Every time we go out to dinner, we end up explaining the Primal/Paleo/low-carb lifestyle to the waiter (and sometimes the managers, when they can't believe that no, we really DON'T want the corn chips, tortillas, bread, croutons, etc. - just bring on the steak!). Almost always, the waiter or waitress wants to know more, and I always wind up trying to remember the best and most comprehensive books and websites on the topic, and inevitably forget some. I write them down, but my handwriting's not the best.


    So, here's an alternative that I came up with today: a "fat" business card listing this site and Proteinpower.com, four books that have really helped me (including The Primal Blueprint), and on the back, a link to a video of a Berkeley lecture by Dr. Gary Taubes. I've ordered a hundred of them, and they should be here within the week. I'm excited!


    I was thinking this might be a good resource for the community... what do folks think? If it wouldn't violate site rules, I can link to the card I created. If it would, no worries - at least I've planted the idea so that others can do something similar.

    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.

    The problem is that everyone's focus is different. I end up talking to people about CHD or obesity or diabetes, or...

    Sounds like you made them pretty generic though.


    I'm more interested in a paleo version of these:

    ...but again, everyone would have different needs.

    The "Seven Deadly Sins"

    Grains (wheat/rice/oats etc) . . . . . Dairy (milk/yogurt/butter/cheese etc) . . . . . Nightshades (peppers/tomato/eggplant etc)
    Tubers (potato/arrowroot etc) . . . Modernly palatable (cashews/olives etc) . . . Refined foods (salt/sugars etc )
    Legumes (soy/beans/peas etc)

    Griff. and Tarlach:


    Great idea, both of you!


    I've been super-broke recently, and so haven't had the resources to dine out-but I love the concept.

    Griff, I would love to see those cards when you get them!

    That would be great to give to any interested party. I get tired of running my mouth! I'd definitely love to see a link. Thanks, Griff!

    Here's links to the front and back of the cards, which arrived yesterday. Sorry about the cruddy quality of the photos - all I have available right now is my cell phone.

    The link on the back of the card is to one of Gary Taubes' lectures: http://www.dhslides.org/mgr/mgr060509f/f.htm


    I'm going to keep a few of these in my pocket so I can hand them to anyone who asks. It's such a relief not to have to try to remember and write down all these links.

    But Griff, a personal trainer told me that Gary Taubes was an idiot. Then again, he also gave me diet and workout advice that made me gain 10 lbs....so.....Hmmmmm


    ;-P

    SassaFrass: I know, those trainers know EVERYTHING, right?


    (I should tell the horror story of the time when I signed up for a gym membership and later discovered that my "trainer" was one of the front desk employees, who'd been "promoted" because they needed a warm body to fill a trainer space while they looked to hire someone. Can we say Potential Lawsuit, boys and girls? Yes, I knew we could.)

    Yeahhhhh! Potential lawsuit! That's why those people spend money on their lovely training, so that they are 'certified' with giving bad advice! ;-)


    Even though, on this forum where I met the afore-mentioned trainer (he was one of the best), there were personal trainers in there asking for very basic advice for their clients! I remember thinking "Sheesh! Just another reason NOT to hire a trainer and just educate myself in all ways possible!".
