    Primal Fuel
    I have been gluten free since January and mostly (80%) grain free since September. I have not had so much as a cold this entire year. Yes, I am knocking on wood! Probably a good thing since I no longer eat chicken noodle soup.

    I haven't been sick since I switched to primal...but I also hadn't been sick for about 4 years before that, either. I think I have a freakshow of an immune system--I work with kids regularly but never get anything they have. I can remember being legitimately stay-home sick maybe 2-3 times in the last 12 years or so.

    How do you refrain?! For me, today, it was coming here to post this!

    No, I just get sad.

    People grow up with CW and just don't know any better, and don't know any better to look/research for anything better.

    Then again, it's the whole sheep thing, step out of the flock and think for yourself, I think that's everyone's responsibility and to blindly believe everything in the media/government is irresponsible IMO.

    At the bottom right of each poster's "box" there is a little speech bubble with a quotation mark in it and a plus sign next to it. You click on that once. You should then see a check mark. Go around the thread happily clicking on as many members' quotes as you like. When you are done choosing the quotes, then go to the bottom of the page and click on "REPLY TO THREAD". This will bring you to the reply box with all of your chosen quotes along with. Then write as you desire and finish as usual.

    I couldn't do it either for the longest time. Then I asked Paleobird and she told me.

    I only care about how others eat/drink when they're sick because they bring it to work, pass it around and then I get sick. Or I used to get sick. I still got my sudden-change-in-weather cold this year but it was much milder. A lot of people I work with drink starbucks and eat poorly when they're sick because they feel too guilty to call in to work (which is fucking stupid, by the way) so they reward themselves with sugar and milk. That's a surefire way to keep yourself sick.

    I agree! We don't know what's going on in a persons life. When I hear someone coughing/hacking/sneezing in the office my first thought is "I hope I don't catch that"

    Unfortunately being primal hasn't cured my asthma or my sinus problems. I do, however, catch far fewer colds than I used to.

    I think it depends on what the general attitude of the boss is. I've worked for companies that supported employees calling in sick (and would send you home if you showed up sick) and I've worked for companies that basically expected you to be there unless you had a death certificate. But yeah, eating crap is definitely not going to speed up the healing process.

    True. I'm 47 and have been working for 30 years (with 5 years off for babies). This is the first job I've ever had that actually allowed me to use my sick days. But you're also working outdoors with the nearest bathroom maybe 4 or 5 miles away most days, so... you really can't work some kinds of sick.
