Yeah, potatoes. I generally gave them up once I declared myself Primal, until my Germany trip, that is. We still have them in the house as the rest of my people are not Primal. Hubby just eats what I cook or do not cook, First is "clean food" as she is sensitive to various chemicals added to food, Second is dairy-free and gluten-free, Third is on the SCD, and Fourth is, as mentioned, seriously picky. On the scale of Cardinal Food Sins, I consider potatoes to be minor, as long as they do not lead to other nonsense, or become a habit such that they throw the low carb thing way outta the ball park.

As you know, just putzing around gets you exactly nowhere. So far, everything Mark stands for, that I have chosen to try, has proven itself in my life without any negatives except for some willpower I need to expend, so no real fears except that I am weak-willed at the moment and kind of don't wanna even though I know this will be awesome for me. Human nature, huh?
I have a mantra that I have spouted for years... "If I eat right, I feel right. If I feel right, I exercise right. If I exercise right, I think right. If I think right, I eat right..." Phil-SC
