    I don't think it has to be A or B. I think it is possible to both view food as fuel and respect/enjoy it for that fact.

    My site (should be) is in my signature. I should have it up this weekend, hopefully. Thinking about it.

    I don't try and come up with paleo foods to take the place of SAD ( I never ate that way any way), instead I get excited about focusing on all the amazing things one can do with paleo foods as they are. I really do not find it limiting. It could be because I've never been that into sweets.

    For my husband it's not the case, he loves sweets, it's been hard for him to give them up. I could easily whip up yummy paleo treats for him but I am not going to as he is really trying to not eat anything sweet.

    As for the word cheat I hate it and indulgence doesn't really work for me either. "Indulgence" sounds like something super good, which may apply to ice cream (depending on how good it is) but doesn't really work for rice. For now if we eat something like ice cream or rice we just call it non-paleo.
    I like the word "indulgence" because it is something planned and out in the open. "Cheating" implies something nasty and furtive.

    Hey, I *like* the Iodine thread... when Grizz isn't being an ass about YOU MUST TAKE THE REQUIRED SUPPLEMENT and THERE'S A SECRET SOCIETY IN MED SCHOOL THAT TELLS DOCTORS TO ACTIVELY RECOMMEND AGAINST IODINE!!!

    While I think that the conspiracy theory is silly on the doctor level, I could see it being an issue high up in Big Pharma. Haven't we seen the same thing when Big Ag attacked William Davis for Wheat Belly? I don't want to discount it entirely.

    My contribution to the thread is some n=1 trials on mole removal (yeah I know, TMI). It seems to be working, but in fits and starts. I don't think I'll ever go up to the megamilligram dosages, and I like the idea of kombu kelp more than tablets.

    However, I am ALL in favor of experimenting with iodine to treat reproductive diseases like breast cancer or endometriosis or enlarged prostate, especially since there already are preliminary results. Look, if you have a serious disease anyway, why NOT try something new? Would you rather take a chance at curing a painful disease you already have, or avoid it because it might cause something later?

    After all, isn't that what we're doing here right on MDA? Traditional medicine says we're all OD'ing on saturated fat. Sure, *we* think differently, but we're in a tiny minority. It only *seems* like there are a lot of us because we're all hanging out here all the time.

    (and to be honest, I think you guys are secretly hoping, deep down, that the ball painting actually works).

    it's not that i don't deep down hope it works, it's just that i don't like the mental image of a man fondling and painting his balls
    beautiful
    yeah you are

    Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.
    lol

    Fun image: Maybe the lady volunteers?
    Funner image: Look up his age. It's in the thread somewhere.

    So, eating an egg, some pumpkin with a little stevia, cinnamon and grassfed butter on it and a handful of coconut flakes separately is some how nutritionally superior than combining almost the exact same ingredients together and baking it because . . . . if it looks like bread, it loses its nutritional value?

    If I shape my grassfed hamburger meat into a dogshit pile shape, that doesn't make it dogshit.

    I find it difficult to care how people choose to prepare their primal-compliant ingredients. I get my superiority complex boost from other sources. (In my case, that's deadlifting obscene amounts of weights at the gym when all the other ladies are in zumba.)

    I was also wondering like the OP. I generally think things that are called what they're not are silly.

    Vegetarian pepperoni - really?

    Veggie, salmon, turkey, etc. burgers. I take burgers very seriously and they are beef (though I am guilty of calling ground bison formed into a patty a bison burger). All the rest are patties. I know because my mom made salmon patties every Friday night when I was growing up.

    "tinis" - a martini is a gin drink. All others are merely drinks served in a traditional martini glass. If I put a condom on my head it doesn't make me a penis.

    I don't miss the old foods (except bread on the burger) because the new foods/ancient foods are beautiful inside and out.

    Disclaimer: I don't have any food allergies or immune system issues, so if I did want a nonprimal food, I'd probably just go ahead and eat it and get back to primal at my next meal.

    I agree. But the image is priceless. Ahaha...
    I don't have a sig here. Can I quote you, for my MDA sig?
