    Sorry, Marissa. Your thread just got hijacked by the Peatarian party. I really don't know why they bother to post on a Primal site.

    To be annoying I suppose. Good for them that they can eat wheat and sugar to their hearts content and not feel badly. Unfortunate that we can't all be so lucky I guess.

    Off to update my ignore list now....

    They hadn't had them in a long time, and they always eat them lickety split, so that's why
    I made the double batch.

    But no, leave it to kids, they both had about 5 each in a 4 day time span, so this weekend *I*
    was left with the rest.

    Since I was starting the potato thing on Monday, I decided to power down those muffins with
    great glee and joy.

    And nothing happened.

    I was expecting to bloat up like roadkill. Nothing.

    Whatever!

    So, not like I'm going to start having cereal for breakfast and 10 muffins in two
    days every week, but it sure was weird that nothing happened. I was expecting
    to feel like death.

    Kinda wish I had.

    Oh well, moving on.

    You continue to steer clear Marissa!!! It's obvious that it doesn't like you ONE BIT.

    We needed a thread to tell us something that's the backbone of paleo?

    Um....forgive me. I suppose I shouldn't start threads in order to have conversations about my experiences. You really don't need to read it or comment about it if you are not interested, ya know?

    LOL. Typical low carb close minded thinking. Ignore us because we disagree with you, why do you even post at all? You seem to know everything about everything. I swear low carbers are just as bad as vegans when it comes to defending their diet.

    Oh and you probably cant consume grains because you stopped eating them entirely so your gut flora changed. Its not magic like Robb Wolf claims. Also your metabolism is probably low from being VLC so you are unable to digest properly.

    I had some wheat the other night. Little hors d'oeuvres that were like little tiny ice cream cones filled with ahi tuna sashimi. Way to ruin sashimi. It's weird how I no longer like the taste of wheat products anymore.

    I am one of those people who can, if I choose to, eat wheat products without a problem. I just don't choose to, because, for me, eating a waffle holds all the appeal of eating styrofoam packing material. I don't have a sweet tooth (never have even pre-Primal) so the syrup grosses me out. The only part of a waffle that appeals is the blob of butter on top. I'll just have that part.

    Funny you should compare it to styrofoam, as that's my metaphor for grains too.

    I typically have savory cravings and rarely sweet ones, but if there's something sweet just ... there ... sometimes my willpower lapses.
