Does anyone watch Oz on a regular basis on TV? I am interested in the commercials that are aired during the show. If Dr. Oz is "brought to you by" the prepared food companies like cereals, hamburger helper mixes, high fucktose corn syrup BBQ sauces and the like, then FORGET IT. Dr. Oz can't afford to lose SAD advertising dollars.
And the same goes for all the women's magazines. I notice that a lot of them are starting to "count carbs" or "don't eat carbs after lunch." But they NEVER specify WHICH carbs to eliminate, as that would eliminate whole classes of ads. If they leave it vague, all companies can compete for women's carbs.

I (try to) follow by-the-book primal as advocated by Mark Sisson, except for whey powder and a bit of cream. I advocate a two-month strict adjustment for newbies. But everybody is different and should tweak Primal to their own needs.
