    We DVR the few shows we watch, so I don't normally have to watch commercials... but I did catch this one the other day... and asked my husband rather hotly, "WTF is the point of chocolate with LESS fat?!"

    Seriously... WTF?
    Mouth feel... how do you get appropriate mouth feel without good fats in the cacao?

    His response... "Honey, it's Hershey's... you aren't going to eat that anyway."

    It's true.

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

    Not that I miss the old days of being fat and sick, but back then I could destroy a box of Life cereal.

    There are no cheat days. There are days when you eat primal and days you don't. As soon as you label a day a cheat day, you're on a diet. Don't be on a diet. ~~ Fernaldo

    Then there's the ad with the farmer riding around on a tractor singing some crap to the tune of 99 bottles of beer on the wall.

    Yeah, I take a bit of offense at these. But I very much disliked the cereal manufacturers way before I became primal because even if you believe CW, the sugary crap they market to kids is disgusting.
    THe one with the farmer is the mini shredded wheats cereal.

    The only cereal I sometimes miss is Rice Krispies. I loved them as a kid. I can live without the squares you make with marshmallow, but sometimes a bowl of RK's sounds good.

    Then I notice that there's BHA in them, and I figure I'd probably get more nutrition if I ate the cardboard box...
    I was watching The Next Iron chef America Redemption, because I love to see what they come up with. I was a little put off when they were given Rice Krispys and Raisin Bran as their must use ingredients. As a kid I loved Raisin Bran and always added more sure.

    They might be dancing now, but check back when the sugar wears off.

    There are some commercials up here in Canada that question everything but decide they are going to trust nutrition they can can see...processed grains...sigh.
    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

    Funny, because the only two cereals I used to like were unsugared shredded wheat and plain Special K. With nonfat milk because I didn't like the way whole milk coated my tongue. My how times have changed.
