Thanks, Siobhan. I haven't conquered it yet, but it has been pushed back a ways. I hope there's room for a lot more pushing. As for staying primal, well, it is a major hope for me right now, so it's much more powerful than temptation. Not enough to beat my finger-licking, sampling ways in the kitchen though. I managed to ingest some of that vegan cake (flour, canola oil, sugar!) in its raw form out of sheer force of habit. It wasn't that much and I did have supper afterwards, so I'm thinking I shouldn't feel too many repercussions even if I do have a heightened intolerance to grains. We shall see. But that was an experiment I had been hoping to put off till the end of four or even six weeks. Oh well. I also would rather have done it on a day when I was feeling really good, so I wouldn't be wondering about alternate causes if I did feel yucky. As a scientist, I obviously have a long way to go!

More and more, our life has been governed by specialists, who know too little of what lies outside their province to be able to know enough about what takes place within it.
