    I'm a trial attorney, so it fits in just fine as I never have time for lunch. What used to be "working through lunch" is now "intermittent fasting."

    I really enjoy hanging out with kidlets at home and doing all my "menial" tasks. The job I had pre-kidlets was in an office where I was a manager and worked over 75 hours a week. It was killing me physically, mentally and spiritually. Even my worst day as a SAHM has been better than my best-day-ever working. I'm so grateful that I can be at home plus it fits in with primal really well.

    My job as a graduate student in biochemistry doesn't conflict with a primal lifestyle much... except the fact that there's free junk food around almost every day and it's hard to get nearly enough sleep.

    But lately I've been thinking that after I graduate maybe I should try to get into a field that has something to do with human health/metabolism/nutrition so I can use all this information I've gathered in my spare time. =]

    Primal, I recently stopped eating lunch, and I'm mad at myself for not doing it sooner - I can get so much more done this way!

    Definitely. Also, the 10 bucks a day in my pocket is nice, too....

    My job is decidedly not primal... and as soon as I can find something with similar or greater pay and benefits that is more primal, I will go. I sit at a desk for 8 hours a day and do reception. It is VERY tedious and I feel automated.

    @unchatenfrance: hear hear! You must do what you love, or you'll hate your life. That was my experience. I'm going to be 40 next year and I won't have my Ph.D. until I'm probably 41 or 42, depending on a few things that I really have no control over. But I'd rather have it at 41 or 42 than not have it at all...
    Primal eating in a nutshell: If you are hungry, eat Primal food until you are satisfied (not stuffed). Then stop. Wait until you're hungry again. Repeat.

    I LOVE my job! It doesn't really conflict with eating PB. However there is tons of junk food and I am frequently too busy to get lunch. My only conflict is with all the chemicals. I use tons of them on clients and can't sell them the natural products I personally use because we carry main stream brands. I also have a conflict with the tanning bed. I believe that is not a good thing and people should get some real sunshine!!!

    Dude, I'm a librarian. I am CONSTANTLY giving information that conflicts with everyone I believe, primal or not. It can get difficult, but just remember that everyone has to find their own way. It's their fault if they feel like crap & don't do their own research, simply relying on what CW is telling them. Even CW tells them to avoid the frosting...
