    Primal Fuel


    Great thread!


    I can achieve anything if I only get ON with it!


    I'm destined to end up a naughty old lady with a twinkle in her eye and fields full of pigs, chickens, cows, and probably an ostrich. Just for the hell of it.


    I don't have to panic-feed to prevent fainting attacks.


    Heart palpitations are NOT normal after a big meal!


    Veggies are optional

    "If you&#39;re a girl, have short hair, and lift weights regularly, most people will think you&#39;re a lesbian (I&#39;m not actually, lol)."


    I still get this despite my long dreadlocks.

    - It&#39;s all about insulin.


    - Fat is good.


    - Eat enough protein.


    - Grain causes stomach bloating. Don&#39;t eat it.


    - I really, really like bodyweight work.


    - I really, really like lifting heavy things.


    - HIIT is fun, too.


    - Believing and applying all of the above will make a girl Crossfit sexy.

    I&#39;ve learned that the impossible is possible...
    1. I don&#39;t need sugar
    2. I don&#39;t need wheat
    3. I&#39;m actually really strong, and getting stronger, and liking it
    4. It&#39;s ok to play without feeling guilty (golf)
    5. I can do a 24 hour fast
    6. I don&#39;t have to worry about my cholesterol
    7. I can be around non-primal foods and not be tempted to eat them
    8. I don&#39;t need potatoes
    9. I really like going to rock concerts, nothing to do with being primal, nonetheless, it&#39;s something I&#39;ve learned (39 bands this year)

    Fat doesn&#39;t make you fat. They should change the name

    Good call--some PR firm should pick this up pro bono. A little positive spin and some razzle dazzle advertising. Call it Appetite Be Gone or Brain Boost or something like that.

    I learned that I have been using a flawed cost-benefit analysis when balancing going completely primal vs. quality of life.


    Before, My reasoning was quitting a short-term pleasure for long-term health benefits.


    My mistake was failing to realize that quitting a short-term pleasure can actually lea to very pleasurable short-term benefits. This happened to me when I decided to quit beer for 2 weeks to see what happened. I discovered that I felt much much better during and after the weekends.


    Had I known this short-term benefit beforehand, the (apparently inconceivable) decision of quitting beer would have been way more straight forward.

    Here&#39;s some of the stuff I learned this year


    * When you no longer eat sugar, fat becomes sweet


    * I doesn&#39;t matter where the sweet comes from - honey, maple syrup, sucanat - it&#39;s badness


    * My body can&#39;t handle gluten. At all. And that it makes potlucks/group meals really suck!


    * Two meals & a snack is enough


    * Exercising can really be fun


    * I can weigh less and feel better than I did 10 or even 15 years ago!


    * Non primal but fun - I&#39;m learning to play the frame drum
