My family isn't primal, not in the least. My kids eat cereal. My husband eats grains. My kids love the occasional junky dessert. So along with all the fruits, vegetables, nuts, eggs, meats, fish, and homemade dishes, my house has bread, pasta, cereal, dairy, bagels, chocolate, chips and cookies. Oh, and Halloween chocolate too.
I don't eat any of it.
I'm no longer even tempted when I make sandwiches for my kids or husband. I have an emergency stash of Ezekiel bread in the downstairs freezer in case the day ever comes when I really do want to have bread. So far, that day hasn't come.
Meanwhile, my kids are slowly having more and more fresh fruit and vegetables, and eggs are no longer limited to a Sunday breakfast. Slowly but surely...
Good friend just tried what he called "low carbing", but not so much. He lost a bunch of weight though ... probably from the carbs he did cut. Went off Statins for a while...first blood test "good", second not so much. Never had partical size done because his "fantastic doctor" said it wasn't necessary. He went back on statins. So yesterday, I sent him a link to the abstract of the big study from Norway that showed an inverse relationship between total cholesterol and mortality. He replied that I don't need to waste my time with the links because he wasn't changing. I responded that I knew, but I thought a massive, recent study showing he could be increasing his risk of death might intrigue him. Never heard back from that one. CW sucks and its inertia is bone crushingly depressing.
(I'm not even half through this thread yet and it's taking me ages but I very much enjoy it )
Also, nice to see someone else feed their dogs well. My baby gets pmr aswell, guess it't the right place to find dog owners with a brain
