Otzi, I confess I have a piece of cake...almost every month! That's my only sweet, and the only sweet I want. I can over-eat primally just fine! Part of my journey is learning portion control, and I think I am getting it. I love smoked salmon, and we even have several what do you call them, salmon smoking companies, in the area. Also plenty of nice grass fed bones.
I frequently ski bare-handed because I get so hot. I will eat snow too, which feels deliciously cold going down. And when I really need to, I face-plant in a nice cold snow drift. Just for fun, everything I do is planned. Really.
The potato diet is totally awesome. I read the whole thread and use it when I want to lose a few pounds but can't afford to be grumpy at work.
