    it's also an estrogen mimetic. there's just no point in flax meal or flax oil, you can't digest the seed form, and i shudder to think what on earth they've done to the stuff to produce a 'milk.'
    And besides, they have these long barns with rows of flax plants just wallowing in flax feces being inhumanely milked by nameless, faceless, flax milk pumping machines.it is brutal. One season and the flax plants are done...sucked dry.

    If you are trying to make smoothies use a mix of coconut milk and water as the base.

    Compared to your description of your previous diet I'd say today is a great success

    As you move forward, try to keep in mind that the goal here is to eat whole, natural, unprocessed foods. With that in mind, flax milk is a little processed, bacon is good but I wouldn't make it a staple, turkey meat is processed, smoothies are fine, but again shouldn't necessarily be the main focus of your diet.. Have hamburger patties fried up with one piece of bacon and cover your eggs in that - delicious. Saute a few spinach greens in the fat and you have a great breakfast. Think fats, unprocessed meats, veggies, and fruits - that's the core of your diet. Then add in as needed for flavor, fun, and flexibility.

    Also - a lot depends on what your goals are of eating this way.....

    Excellent, thank you very much. My goal is to shed fat, eat natural, have more energy, and have better overall health. Shockingly, I have/had a lot of the side effects others mentioned and I thought it was crazy I found it here. Bloating, gas, always hungry no matter what I eat. I'm looking for a lifestyle change.

    You're on the right track! My version of primal works for me, and it might work for you if you want to try it. I eat:

    Aroy-D coconut milk for breakfast - one normal (12 oz.?) can.

    Lunch might contain a few of the following:
    Green apple
    Avocado or two
    Grass-fed beef liver cooked in tallow
    Zucchini
    Can of mackerel
    Head of romaine lettuce
    Can of oysters
    Sometimes mango or melon when available and fresh for cheap
    Other primal fare, six-egg meals on my days off work.

    Dinner is extremely consistent:
    Salmon steak or two cooked in coconut oil and grass-fed tallow (I make it myself for CHEAP!) with salt and parsley
    Mountain of cruciferous organic frozen veggies, often with a sheet of seaweed tossed in or with some organic frozen spinach. And I mean mountain - hard to get the lid on the pan, and it's a 12" by 2" pan!

    This diet, with trail mix on grocery day and the occasional dark chocolate bar, makes up my diet. It's predictable, easy and affordable and I'm down to 170 from 215, adding muscle and feeling alert. Usually fitday is happy with it, too!

    id ditch anything even close to milk .. just get your mind over needing it if you feel you do ..

    no bananas for me, and not many fruits and no nuts (if you are trying to lose weight)

    why is turkey a no no? ive never heard of that ... (im picturing the roasted turkey im eating for lunch today, no deli meat)

    you do need fat at lunch ...

    That can work, if milk is something you drank before Primal. I drink the coconut milk for the medium-chain-triglycerides and the heat energy in the morning, plus all the insane myriad benefits of coconut. But I can't drink milk, it turns into concrete in my stomach and takes a week to pass...gassy and painful, not something to be missed or desired. Coconut milk just vanishes, almost completely digested.
