On the obvious bullshit caveman/dinosaur thing, I saw some little adorable caveman toys right next to some adorable little dinosaur toys. Kids grow up with wrong information from the get-go. Want smart kids? Give 'em smart toys.
this is truly a problem only for an affluent westerner.Meat kind of always grossed me out,
.Plus you I wouldn't want a disease-free cow, you can need to be exposed to poisons
this garbled syntax and hilarious assertion actually me made lol.
k, thanks for stopping by, off ya go now...
As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

5'0" female, 42 years old. Started Primal October 31, 2011, at a skinny fat 111.5 lbs. Low weight: 99.5 lb on a fast. Current weight: 109 lbs because of travel.
MY PRIMAL: I (try to) follow by-the-book primal as advocated by Mark Sisson, except for whey powder and a bit of cream. I aim for 80-90 g carb/day and advocate a two-month strict adjustment for newbies. But everybody is different and other need to tweak Primal to their own needs.
I don't remember anyone saying you had to label your nutrition style. Personally, I love the Primal eating, but I think it sounds ridiculous coming from me. Maybe once I've lost 10 more lbs, but right now, I just tell people I avoid processed food and excess sugar.
Primal since 4/7/2012
Starting weight 140
Current weigh 126
If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.
What's wrong with the 'label' Primal? To me, it means original, basic, quality, the foundation (of a healthy lifestyle). It's a one word summation of a 2 paragraph explanation. And it has just a little bit of 'wild' to it.
barefoot, you obviously have an agenda. a mentally deficient 5 year old could see you have an agenda
now, i could go all out and take my daily life frustrations out on you via this post and say you're an effing moron and if you want to eat bread all day every day go right ahead! whoooo caaaaares? there must be something big missing in your life to make you come here and posts these posts, saying bread is fine on a board where 99% of the people realize bread is NOT fine, like you expect to sway the masses to your barefoot, sandwich eating, long distance running ways like you yourself may be a mentally deficient 5 year old
i could say that as trolls go, you're terrible at it. trolls by their very nature will come into a calm situation to say something inflammatory in the hopes of stirring up trouble. what you aren't realizing is that an actual trolling is like throwing fire crackers into a small room full of people. your posts are like one fart in a large room. do you see what i'm saying here? if you're going to do something, make it count
i could say, OH MY FCKING GOD, JUST EAT BREAD I DON'T CARE
i could say i wish to god you'd stfu if you aren't going to make a fight worth my time to read
but i won't
you can totes be a lacto-ovo vegetarian and still be perfectly primal! !!!
yeah you are
if you think about it, any box could have vibrators in it
Mr. Barefoot Gentile,
I respect your opinion and if that's the way you feel you will do fine not eating meat. It's not for everyone. Doesn't mean it's better or worse, it's just different. I feel better since I stopped grains about 3 weeks ago. I am eating about 150 g. a day of carbs from non-grain sources and also have been eating meat, fish, dairy, eggs. To me it's all good. I haven't lost any additional weight, but at 6ft 1-1/2 inches and 208 lbs., being 15 pounds overweight doesn't concern me that much. If I lose or don't lose any more weight, I'll be happy not to gain any. I don't believe there's any magic bullet for longevity, but I do believe you should eat what makes you feel the best while you are alive. My father died at 64 of a heart attack. He looked great and exercised regularly and didn't have an extra ounce of fat on him. Even had a full head of hair. My mother-in-law and father in law made it to their early 90's after being 60-80 lbs overweight until their early 80's. In their last 10 years of life they lived on Hot-pockets, frozen dinners and progresso canned soup, and a little salami, wine and chocolate on the side. I find many people tend to be sure their formula is the right one. Maybe it's only right for them.
