Didn't know where to post this, but "success stories" looked like as good a place as any. Have been primal now for about two months and dropped from 197 to 179 lbs. I've been absolutely floored by the results and am proud to say that I don't even crave grain-based or processed foods anymore. The thing that's really blown me away is how much food I can actually eat without putting on pounds.
Last night for instance I ate an entire head of broccoli with butter, pepper, lime juice and salt and a full rack of pork ribs. This morning, three eggs, two slices of ham and a whey protein shake with banana, mango and pineapple.
But here's the fascinating part: Have any of you ever had tonsiliths? They are those supremely nasty little white balls of food that (for some) form and then get trapped in the crevices of the tonsils. They stink to high heaven, cause bad breath and are really gross.
Since I radically changed my diet? Gone! I've been plagued by these nasty little critters for years, but haven't coughed up one stink ball since going primal. I know it's gross, but I'd be very interested to know if anyone else has experienced tonsiliths and whether the reported chronic inflammation caused by grains/processed foods may have caused my tonsils to become inflamed as well and trap food in the crevices.
Thanks... And sorry if I spoiled anyone's lunch.
