I don't like being "recruited" as one of Grizz's inner circle. If anyone remembers, I came in demanding a lot of scientific proof. It was only the appearance of LynneF that lent any sanity to all this and convinced me that Iodine was probably OK, or at least it wouldn't harm me that much. Hopefully her book will be less imposing.
That said, I'm not taking full ATP cofactors. I'm only taking about a half-dose worth. A couple times, I would feel somewhat shaky after taking it. Is this the "flush" I hear about? If so, I'm very afraid to take the full ATP pill. I'd rather limit my iodine intake to under 10 mg and scale the supplements accordingly.
The one warning I'm worried about is for anyone who may have undiagnosed thyroid issues. Wouldn't all this iodine really be a problem in that case? Yes, 90% of us may not experience anything, but I can see Grizz not wanting to take chances. Now, if only he would SAY it like that without going crackpot...
Paleo girl, congrats on nipping the acne! I can't seem to find a happy balance. If I just brush on Lugol's I get no effect. If I apply Lugol's with a soaked band-aid I kill an entire layer of skin. I do not want to take chances with my face or chest, so I still use Tazorac (Rx) which works pretty well.

I (try to) follow by-the-book primal as advocated by Mark Sisson, except for whey powder and a bit of cream. I advocate a two-month strict adjustment for newbies. But everybody is different and should tweak Primal to their own needs.
