    when i first REALLY started primal, i was so excited

    i started buying bigger and more cuts of beef, but it didn't feel *right*, you know?

    so one day, i decided i was going to hunt and get some wild meat because it was healthier

    i finally bagged a large dog, and began cleaning it on the spot. neighbors started gathering so i decided to show them how to clean and skin a kill

    i didn't realize SAD CWs might not get it til kids started screaming

    i blame their parents for raising weak willed children
    beautiful
    yeah you are

    I mean there's so many ants in my eyes! And there are so many TVs, microwaves, radios... I think, I can't, I'm not 100% sure what we have here in stock.. I don't know because I can't see anything! Our prices, I hope, aren't too low!

    WHEN PRIMAL GOES TO FAR!!!

    Stories, theories, and ideas you have heard of people, or even yourself applying the primal lifestyle and taking it to an unrealistic level. On this forum, in the gym, your friends, family and fellow Groks and Groketts.

    You got stories, I WANNA HEAR EM!
    Are you after amusing stuff - men wondering whether skirts would be more primal to wear, for example - or serious examples of taking it all too far? Or maybe both?

    There have certainly been numerous wacky threads here, if you're looking for a laugh.

    However, on the serious side it seems there are people who've become so obsessed by "body image" as a result of becoming interested in the "ancestral health movement" that they've done themselves damage. Here's an example:

    But for me, when primal goes wrong is when you (and I did) reach what I call the "paleo evangelist" stage. It's when you get twice as obnoxious as those vegans because what we do is against conventional wisdom. I've seen it happen in friends that have gone primal. Don't go on a crusade. The uninitiated won't believe you unless you tempt them with bacon, then they'll say you're just on Adkins.
    I agree. I think we have warped the definition of "diet" to mean fad, instead of diet as what we normally eat on a daily basis.


    Nobody likes a fanatic of any sort, waving their finger in your face telling you, you are on the wrong path.

    I think the "Grok didn't shower/brush his teeth/comb his hair" threads are going too damn far.

    Get your stinky ass in the shower. You do, in fact, STINK.

    For me it's about food trackers and ratios. I've kept a food journal for over five years. It's pen to paper and takes about 10-15 minutes per day to both plan and then write down actual. Then I started reading about macros and moar fat, bingeing on fruit, etc. So I started using one of the online food trackers. It helped a little, but I kind of naturally eat protein heavy and with those proteins comes fat (animals and eggs have fat). And I probably overeat fruits occasionally in summer.

    Eventually keeping my food intake on a tracker felt like work, then like a chore. I started to dislike thinking about food. So I stopped the whole online tracking thing. If I know I'm going to eat a big honkin' potato at supper, I limit my plant food in the rest of my day. That's my way of tracking.

    So, for me, that was primal gone too far. Grok didn't track. S/he ate what was available and moved around a lot. There weren't any processed foods or added sugar, but I don't need a tracker to avoid those. IOW, we "go caveman," then we analyse every morsel we put in our mouths - it's positively ungrokified.

    The forum is called "Primal Living in the Modern World"
    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

    I dunno, girls keep telling me they like how I smell more when I don't take a shower, no joke.

    I couldn't say the same thing when I was addicted to sugar, tho.

    I can't say I'm surprised. Some of the most offensively smelling males are the heavy aftershave users and it only gets worse later in the day as it gets more stale and mixes with their BO.

    Why wouldn't girls like the smell of a healthy male rather than a cocktail of chemicals sitting over the exudations of improperly broken-down SAD food? Female sweat certainly isn't unpleasant.
