For what's it worth, "skunk meat" is from a poor translation, as those people living in the andes, living on a quinoa-centric diet, there's NO skunks in their environment. That "skunk meat" is actually a reference to coriander which flavors that meat, of a indigenous small animal, certainly impossible to be skunk. Skunks cannot be found south of Northern or Central Mexico or certainly Guatemala as a maximal limit, to be generous to animalistic tenacity.

For myself, not needing to lose significant weight, never having any major weight issues, I came to primal due to my life-long seeking & interest in optimizing health & happiness, through diet & lifestyle. My issues were more inflammation in & around discs & limited athletic abilities & loss of sponteniety (ie dancing) stemming from that inflammation & pain.
I will eat some grains, rice/rice pasta, oats, quinoa & even the occassional slice of pizza, very rare.
Ice cream has been a recent indulgence. It's gonna end soon though, it's about run it's course...
