i have always known sugar was bad for me. had to ditch gluten and just couldnt get past how nasty GF grains were. even "properly" prepared ones. i have never liked rice anyways. i dont usually label what i do as primal as i was doing it before i found MDA. so no real wakeup call as such. more a slow slide into this way of being. the stricter i am, the better i feel.
