    I ate 5 cakes every Friday for 6 weeks straight. Lost quite a bit of body fat doing that. I miss 1,000g of carbohydrate Fridays. I can't wait to pick them back up next week
    Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

    I've been slowly making adjustments.

    First, I cut all grains, period.

    Next, I cut way back on processed foods.

    Almost 3 weeks ago, I cut dairy.

    Now it looks like I'll be cutting fruit next.

    Once I have things under control, maybe I can find a happy place of a serving of berries or an apple daily. But it sure is looking like I should put fruit in the "indulgence" category, along with dark chocolate and red wine.

    I am 'cold turkey' with fruit because I find that it's a 'trigger food' for me--anything sweet will do that.

    I find, however, that I can sometimes manage it if it's in a restaurant setting--i.e. self-limiting. But I don't buy fruit to have at home--ever.

    Jackie have you cut your omega 6 consumption as well -- see choco you got me on the ball lol

    Are you making your own salad dressing? Check out these if not: Homemade Dressing Mix Variety Pack (French Garden, Napa Garden & Italian Garden), 3.3 to 4-Ounce Containers: Amazon.com: Grocery & Gourmet Food
    What about mayo?

    What about lean conventional meat, or have you gone grass fed?

    I've been more mindful of omega 6, but other than replacing my almonds with macadamias and hazelnuts, I haven't been doing too much. Ack! Advice?

    I don't use salad dressing, and I cut mayo 3 weeks ago when I cut dairy.

    As for meat, I try to do grass-fed beef (just had strip steak last night, yum!). But the chicken is all God-knows what (discovered this morning that my eggs are from hens feed corn and SOY, f***!), and ditto the turkey.

    Why?

    My family, unfortunately, isn't primal. So we have not only plenty of fruit, but also bread, pasta, cereal, cookies...you name it. The only thing that I'm bad about is the fruit. I can easily not eat the other stuff. Evil fruit! (I just had a pear. Sigh.)

    Choco did a nice write up. It sounds like you hit the big ones cutting out Soybean/canola PUFA oils in general is key! Have you found a local farm CSA for your meat yet? Its a much cheaper way to get grass fed. You could get conventional just trim the fat and get the fat from your local farm semi-monthly to cook with, or use coconut oil.

    Eggs shop around, All chickens are fed some sort of corn feed.. but some are actually mainly outdoors all day so they eat a lot more natural stuff... look for PASTURE raised. Whole foods has one..but local farms is best.

    Thanks for the link -- will read!

    I actually found one brand of eggs that is in exactly one supermarket about 20 minutes away. Organic, pasture-raised chickens free to roam and eat all the grass they want and bugs they can catch. Couldn't get to that super this week, so am making do with the craptastic soy-feed eggs.

    As for a local farm, I still have to do this. I do cook exclusively with coconut oil (small exception of olive oil when my FIL is here; he still can't wrap his arms around the notion of coconut oil being healthy).

    Do you think this is related to my crazy fruit cravings?

    I think your fruit cravings are because sugar is addictive
