The microcosm of board members who own stocks in grains, sit on government food advisory panels AND set nutritional guidelines for the medical industry is responsible for the confusion. I know hospitals would suffer greatly is people were to live normal, healthy lives and then just drop dead. We rely on chronic ailments that lead to big, long-term insurance payouts.
Doesn't it also make you angry when the "experts" assume that bc we don't eat gluten we replace it with high calorie substitutes that they say make you fat!? They are speaking out of ignorance in that case bc they just don't care enough to really see what we are doing. I have cured my insomnia on the primal diet and appear well on my way to curing my anxiety, and it makes me SO mad when people discount this way of eating...but then again, why have a diet that helps prevent disease when you can treat it for high dollars over the course of a lifetime? Argh I need to walk the anger off..lol.
The ones that came in on top are "programs" that bring in big advertising dollars. You don't want to offend the advertisers. There is no single entity making money off of paleo. Therefore, it comes in last.
Using low lectin/nightshade free primal to control autoimmune arthritis. (And lost 50 lbs along the way )
Cracks me up... I literally have retrained my entire body in 5 weeks. I'm in better shape than I've been in since basic training, and I've only just started.
My rule of thumb:
Conventional Wisdom = FAIL
Instinct = WINNING

I'm nearly 48 dropped grains about 3.5 weeks ago and no milk, been training for about 6 weeks after a layoff due to a chest infection.
I have never dropped weight so fast even in my 20s. Now easily in 32 inch jeans and losing 1 to 2 lbs per week
I am eating primally with a bit more Carb than most but rarely over 120 grams a day it's quite hard to do so.
I am monitoring my calories and estimate 20lbs loss so far.
I have been out to dinner at least 5x and have the occasional treat
You can STICK your grains and milk where the sun don't shine
People at work have been shocked how quick I have done it.
