    Primal Fuel
    I feel really lucky on the full fat yoghurt issue - our supermarket shelves are brimming with the stuff - Rachels, Yeo Valley and Own brand Greek Yoghurts are ALL 10% fat and freakin' GORGEOUS. Tesco's full size tub is only £1 Genius!

    Sorry to hear you are having problems tracking down. For some reason the brits are very accepting of full fat yog!

    My friend was asking me about the primal thing the other day because she's noticed how much fat I've lost. I explained it to her, and she said, "But I do eat like that!" They cook mostly in line with the SCD because two of their kids are on the autism spectrum. I asked her about sugar intake, and she told me she only has one medium Tim Hortons ice cappuccino a day. I just looked it up--that's 47g of sugar in one drink alone!

    I was in the break room making my breakfast and I overheard this conversation:

    "So where do you want to go to dinner?"

    "I was thinking Donovan's, or maybe Ruth's Chris." (Both steak places)

    "I had a bad experience the last time I was at Ruth's Chris. Maybe I ordered the wrong cut, but it was all fatty."

    Sigh...

    Just watched Jamie Oliver's 'Jamie Does, French Pyrenees'.

    It was interesting as the food in the show concentrated on animal products, saturated fat, cream and only the occasional bit of bread. Then he started talking about the 'French Paradox' and how in this area of the country there is a very low incidence of heart disease but no-one knows why. He even went board hunting with a group of blokes and the bbq'd the cutlets.

    I looked up the FP on wiki and there are all sorts of explanations as to what is causing it but they just don't stop and think...maybe it's the saturated fat and lower carbs. It's right in front of their noses but obviously they just can't bring themselves to consider that could be the explanation.

    We've got the tie in book from the series and I've checked the recipes and many seem to be really primal in the France section so I'll be doing a few of those.

    yeah french food rocks, confit of duck is my fav! and they will quite happily chow on a raw steak!

    although watch out for skiing resorts, i skied for 4 months and didn't lose a thing (maybe a *little* tummy) as i was eating up crusty bread, croissants, potatoes, pizza, porridge...yadda...and i was having to cook for myself outside of my skiing groups coming out, or being provided for by my boss - rice, polenta, more rice, potatoes etc!

    although the french do eat a fair amount of pomme de terres! potato to you and me.

    On the subject of full fat yogurt - it is SO EASY to make your own yogurt, seriously in two minutes of work and 24 hours leaving it alone, you can get a nice amount of organic no additive full fat yogurt from organic whole milk. Add in a generous amount of heavy cream and make it even better than store bought.

    Are the ski resorts geared to satisfying foreigners?

    One of my high school students told me today that I shouldn't be eating more than 3 eggs a day because it is bad for my cholesterol.

    I told him that I recently had my cholesterol tested and it is stellar...

    He responded by saying..."Well that's what my brother told me and he has a degree in that stuff." His brother is a pro football player with a phys ed degree.

    wel - i suppose...but i think they are more under the mistaken CW that carbs fuel energy (for the skiing) i mean if you don't have the fat reserves i do and you don't want to start burning muscle, you would need somthing carby...but you never get sweet potato or anything.

    but they are heavy on the fats; cheese, cream, butter, fatty meats too....i BET that's what the french eat and leave ze forgeiners to the crappy nutrionally void content...!
