YES! For the first time in I can't remember how long, I did not gain ANY weight over the holidays, whether I count it from 10/31 to 1/6, or just the month of Thanksgiving to Christmas. A few sweets, even one binge, yes, but not enough to make it stick.
And better - I took my children primal, and from the first day they were off grains (they had been having only 1-2 servings/day of soaked, sprouted, or soured whole grains), they started begging for vegetables. By the third day, they were calling salad "Heaven" and having it for lunch & dinner. They fight over the last scoop of brussels sprouts, greens, or squash pudding (not sweetened). And this has been going on for three months now, without sign of abating! (well, they haven't been craving the raw vegetables since it got cold. I haven't, either.)
