I sent my boyfriend a bunch of PDFs I downloaded from Loren Cordain's Paleo Diet website. My boyfriend would hate Mark's diet book style of writing. He thinks I am crazy with all the fat I eat (it's really not any more than him, just it's not "lite" Pam cooking spray or "healthy" canola oil.) Anyway, I thought since Cordain's writing agrees with a low fat, low salt paradigm it would make more sense to my boyfriend. I think he actually did like the PDFs! I waited almost a year to send my BF any info because I knew he wasn't in a receptive state. But he confided a laundry list of symptoms the other day which I took to be a cry for help because he's not the type to do that sort of thing. He made eggs, pancetta and mushrooms for breakfast this morning instead of his usual honey-flavored yogurt with tart cherry juice. I think he has major IBS on top of his other stuff so I sent him the gut sense website, too. I sure hope he tries this stuff. It's painful to watch him suffer and not help, just watch.
