    I don't think it's either... I suspect he's trolling. Don't feed the trolls!

    Whether he's trolling or not, it's a fact that this type of lifestyle takes willpower.
    Some people can do it, others - not so much.

    Of course! I doubt the barefoot gentile wears them. I'm sure he's got trendier things in his closet. The only trends he bucks are the ones he wants to appear to be smug and superior about. That's what makes him a troll.

    20 miles, good, wish I could do more than 5 everyday.
    Now try and put some time between you and grains, snacking all the time, too much fruit, etc.

    A lot of us are trying to right the wrong of eating grains, sugar,
    anything and everything our little hearts desired year after year
    and thought we knew it all, kinda like you, sweetie.

    Well, it all comes down to the bottom line, doesn't it? As long as you don't see any reason to stop eating grains and continue to eat them, you'll never know if going grain free has benefits for you.

    To continue coming here to argue that grains are fine when you are unwilling to even try PB, puts you in the trolling category.

    In another post we squabbled over, he said he's a 100% skin on asphalt dude. He told me he doesn't understand how I can wear vibrams.
    For the record, my V's are wicked comfy and I get lots of compliments

    and ohnoes! I had an egg sandwich TWICE last week. (granted it was gluten free, but still. Ermmergawd sammiches!)

    my theory is grains were probably awesome a couple hundred years ago. You went out, planted seed, watered it, harvested it, ground it up, and made bread. Today you go out, plant it, spray it with chemicals, spray it with more chemicals, and then more chemicals, then harvest it, spray it with more chemicals, grind it up, send it to a plant where it gets mixed with more chemicals and made into a bread-like substance. GMO wasn't exactly a popular trend in the Pioneer's days when bread was awesome.

    As a T1.5 diabetic, I was able to stay drug free with the help of Primal. Also, I love being high fat low carb. It's way more delicious (and less depressing) than high carb/low fat.

    Anyone who has ever spent anytime on concrete, asphalt, or even SAND in the South... knows that there is a legitimate NEED for a shoe like a VFF...
    Just sayn.

    My son used to never wear shoes unless in school, or he absolutely had to inside public places... but I'd warn him about his beach forays. And then a few years ago at about 17 (he had been barefoot his whole life) he did it... he was a teen and off with his friends and he ignored me. He had huge thick callouses and unlike his friends he couldn't "feel" the burning as much... so he would walk the beach until his feet felt over heated, then he would cool them off in the water for a bit... then he walked home on the asphalt.

    His entire soles were blistered off his feet! They raised up in big roundish circles.
    Thankfully they weren't deep burns... but they did peel off, and his feet were very sore for a long time after.

    Yeah... I wear VFFs.

    And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.

    Gopintos Thanks for the quote about sprouted grains from Wheat Belly, I'm saving it to send to a friend who at the moment is doing the Fat Flush Cleanse Diet which eliminates grains. She says she feels so much better but is looking forward to reintroducing grains in the form of Ezekiel Bread. There are a lot of people who belief that sprouting grains makes them okay to eat. I can not figure out why she is so attached to grains. She tried eating primally about 6 months ago and also felt relief from various health issues, but said she was often hungry and never really felt full.

    It could be that the OP and my friend never ate enough. It may be that simple, if you are hungry and not trying to loose weight then for goodness sake's eat more!

    I eat this way because I feel 20yrs younger. I'd been living with low level discomfort for years and just attributed it to getting older. I didn't know that it was connected to my diet and I wouldn't have known if I hadn't completely made the change; 80/20 didn't really make that much difference for me. I won't keel over if I eat a slice of bread, but if I eat grains as a regular part of my diet I know I will not feel that great.

    ^This. Not to mention the fact that pre-industrialization, after wheat was cut, it sat out in the sun for days sprouting before being ground. Now it goes directly from field to factory.
