    I see why Mark doesn't read the forums

    Over the past 4-5 months, after reading Mark's book and making adjustments to my diet, it has occurred to me that people are crazy when it comes to applying theory to their own lives. They get so wrapped up in the details and end up totally missing the point. The constant threads of lipid tests, MUFA vs PUFA, is bacon good?, should I HIIT, should I run 19 miles a day, FRUIT? should I drink whole milk, protein powder, leptin, insuiln, grass fed on a budget, chicken or pork, "I ate a bagel today", coconut flour vs almond flour, OOOOOOhhmega 3!!!! They should seriously lock all threads since everything has been discussed and can be found via the search function. Jesus Christ. It's seriously taxing reading through this shit. Does anyone else see this or am I just nuts (omega-6)?

    I guess I should just stop reading for awhile. Time to move on to something else during lunch

    Nevermind searching the forums, people don't even read the articles he's listed in Primal Blueprint 101, which would answer all of these questions!

    Self-realization. I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates, who said, "... I drank what?"

    i see that too, but i've learned how to spot the threads that have been done over and over again. granted, most people should use the search function before posting about that weight loss stall they had after a week of primal eating, but i think it's important to remember that people are continually signing up for this, so there will always be new members with similar questions...and answering those questions can be a good thing. my responses and follow up responses from other people really help me clarify my vision on some of these matters. and it really helped to read and respond to posts--even those repeated ones--when i was first starting out. yeah, i'm sick of touting bacon and suggesting ways to deal with family and friends, but some great new topics come up every now and then, and they can be super interesting delving into a topic that mark can only touch upon on his posts.

    Lol! I agree with your post though! It's easy to get too caught up in everything sometimes

    Lol. Its typical of any forum with long standing members and lots of newbies cycling through. Lots of folks are looking for quick answers and either dont want to or dont have time to research for themselves. I'm a soapmaker and cant remember how many times I've answered, "yes, you realy do have to use lye to make soap."

    Once upon a time...

    Mark did read the forums and answer questions.

    I have had really good luck just emailing my questions. Sometimes it has taken as much as a week to get an answer but I have always gotten an answer.

    What... you think a thread where a person says they are going to "eat primal" by consuming ONLY eggs and warm water is a bit off?
    Yes, I read something to that effect recently. It gave me a sad.

    And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.
