    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification


    People do eat them regularly, but no more than any other country. I've never seen what you describe ever, and I've lived here for 28 years. Americans often eat a mound of fries for their lunches, what's the difference?

    Type 1 diabetic for 25 years.
    Low carb for 7 years, LC Primal for 2.5 of those.
    Fruit and starch free.
    Total weight loss- 3 stone/42 pounds. Current weight = 121 pounds. Height 5'5
    I take Zymessence systemic enzymes.

    And just because you *once* saw a group of Irishmen eating a large amount of potatoes doesn't mean it's our national dish!

    Here's what wikipedia says about corned beef & cabbage in America:


    In the United States and Canada, the consumption of corned beef has become associated with Saint Patrick's Day.[5] Although corned beef did not originate in Ireland, it has been an integral part of Irish-American culture and is often part of North American celebrations of Saint Patrick's Day.[6] In Ireland, the closest traditional dish is Bacon and Cabbage (more akin to Canadian style bacon or ham). Corned beef and cabbage became popular in America after Irish immigrants in the eastern United States used corned beef instead of pork in their traditional dish.


    And, honestly, from my observations, the big thing about St. Patrick's Day in America is drinking beer. Just like the bars go crazy on Cinco de Mayo, which was not such a big deal in Mexico--their actual independence day is September 16th (but most of us up here don't pronounce "diez y seis de septiembre" all that well

    StoneAgeQueen - I wasn't really being serious. I know that a group of guys doesn't make the whole country. Hence, the smiley face.

    AuH2Ogirl- Sorry for the lack of humour on my part I'm irritated today by all the stereotyping.

    Here in America today is just a good excuse to get very very drunk and celebrate green.


    No one cares about St. Patrick or any of that nonsense.

    @StoneAgeQueen,


    No worries I can understand that. I get frustrated with stereotypes of Americans.

    I'm ... um.... nothing?

    Eating lots but still hungry? Eat more fat. Mid-day sluggishness? Eat more fat. Feeling depressed or irritable? Eat more fat. People think you've developed an eating disorder? Eat more fat... in front of them.
