    ya i figured but seeing as tho i didnt eat any other fat i thought well 2 pieces wont hurt... i mainly eat shrimp, octopus, halibut oh man i better stop i want some now.

    One of the best meals I ever had - long before primal - in Hakata in southern Japan, which is known for its eels. The restaurant menu is "half an animal, or the whole animal" - that's the translation. I went for the whole animal. The catch it in the tank, spear it, filet, and grill it in front of you, takes about 5 minutes to your table, practically twitching, with the deepest darkest kind of Japanese sauce you've ever tasted - think dark roasted not-that-sweet teriyaki, sort of. over a bed of white rice. AMAZING.
    If you are new to the PB - please ignore ALL of this stuff, until you've read the book, or at least http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/ and this (personal fave): http://www.archevore.com/get-started/

    I would be more concerned about frying in walnut oil than eating a bit of rice. Before I did the leptin reset and had cravings, I used to judge carbs by how much they increased cravings. A tablespoon or two of white rice occasionally was no problem.

    A tbs or two. Man that's 2 pieces of sushi if that. I go thru about 30 to 40 pieces one sitting at sushi buffet on refeeds. That's barely what 240g of carbs childs play.

    Try wild rice! It's all wild seeds, not really even rice. A lot more nutrients, there!

    Yea, but there are many more anti-nutrients in wild rice, too. IMO it's silly to compare nutrients in a starch source since they're all very lacking. The difference in nutrition between white rice and wild rice is very little in the grand scheme of things, but white rice is so much cleaner I'd rather use it and just make up the nutrition with other food.

    Another post from you thats full of shit, you are just plain wrong.

    Posted once before, but you should read it this time - Is Rice Unhealthy? | Mark's Daily Apple

    Another one - White Rice: Agent of Disease, a Sensible Choice, or Healthsaver? | Free The Animal

    Just because something is neolithic doesn't mean it's unhealthy. Rice is very similar to white potato, yet it's lower GI and lower in anti-nutrients. It's one of the healthiest starch sources in terms of anti-nutrients.

    Lifting weights isn't Primal, either. I doubt Grok had a weight bench, an Olympic bar and 300 lbs of iron plates, yet everyone in the Primal/Paleo world seems to advocate it. It's a lot safer than dragging a rock, too.

    theres a bunch of things that arent primal yet ppl do it anyway. nuts, coffee, like choco said lifting weights, etc. ur looking at primal in the wrong light, i see primal as a way of living healthfully, for me 90% of my meals i cook myself, i dont consume any nuts, fraken oils, wheats or legumes. i smash the gym and feel great about it. so if eating white rice is wrong on refeeds than mark me as anti-primal... because im toxic free and happier than ive ever been.
