Yep, what is a "sensible indulgence" when you already look like a Greek God (our dearest Mark) is different than for the rest of us mortals. And when does it stop being "occasional" and get to be a staple? That's the problem. Slippery slope.
I really think that booze of all kinds is behind a lot of people's failures and backslides who are otherwise primal. I know all the cruise booze had a lot to do with my relapse because I really didn't step out of line that much diet wise.
Peril is spot on about the sprints, LHTs and being wary of supposedly "safe" starches. Just because a starch is not tearing holes in your guts does not mean that it is doing you any favors in the weight loss department.
Cheese is one of those things like nuts for me. There is only one serving size : all that is left in the house. I'm better off just not having either of them around.
