Hella grumpy today.
From the "raw vegan" thread in the Nutrition forum. Not really directed towards this quote, it just got me rambling.
I also see people "fail" Primal over and over. While yes, you can make arguments about willpower and all that, maybe that means the right diet for that person is NOT the one they keep failing. A good diet should leave someone healthy, happy, and unstressed about food or their body, IMO. Go Kaleo is all about eating what works for YOU. Sure, maybe you can go to therapy and work on your commitment issues with a diet or something, but why not find a diet that works for your health instead of trying to make yourself fit the diet? I'm not saying overeat sweets and junk food, I'm saying find a diet that lets you eat enough amazing & delicious that the occasional treat is not going to ruin your day, hour, week, or life. And DON'T rule out seeking professional help from doctors of any kind. I know I'm not the best example of doing that, but I enjoy my diet explorations at this point.
I do feel like a hypocrite for sticking around here much of the time. I'm not really primal. I'm probably more in line with WAPF stuff now, which is still "ancestral". Even so, just as I don't care to pick a name to assign to my sexuality, I don't really care to call my diet anything other than "what I eat".
