    My father has a strong interest in the biological side of nutrition, as do I. I remember fighting with him about coconut oil when I was home over Christmas break, as I hadn't yet gone primal but wanted to get some SFA in me after reading on here about how good they were. Now that I'm fully primal (3 weeks in and 2.6 kilos lost) he listens but still shakes his head and says "I hate meat and don't want to give up grains." He also has heart issues (arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia), so I worry for him.

    However, since I don't live at home, I'm trying to urge my brother (who does) to get Primal (it's helped my mood an enormous amount, and I think it would help his as well). If my brother and I are both Primal and my father sees how much it's helped us, I know he'll jump on the bandwagon. In fact, when I sent him an entire day's worth of stuff I'd eaten on Fitday with 80 grams of protein and 52 grams of carbs listed, he emailed me back with "get more protein! you should be eating 110 grams!" Not a word on the carbs. 8)

    My mother still gasps when I say I cook my food in lard, though.

    At a work function with OH, they start passing the bread around the table and we say "no thanks we don't eat bread."
    The response ""ah that is why you are so slim."
    as they continue to eat the bread....lol
    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

    Probably irrelevant, but two of my cousins (sisters) are toe-walkers. One is completely normal (for now? she's only 7), the other (14) was diagnosed with slight hyperactivity two years ago, basically a mild case of ADHD.

    Oh, they're definitely not on a good diet. I quietly agree that if they eliminated grains a lot of her problems would go away. My uncle also knows they don't eat right, but they don't really have any money. Both of them are unemployed and live well below the poverty line. I think it's more of a crime that my aunt can buy two frozen pizzas for $5 while you can barely get enough lettuce for a family of 6 on $5, tbh.

    Edited because my English may be a bit confusing: They are a family of 6, three girls and one boy with my aunt and uncle. Aside from the 7-year old, they are 14, 18 and 22, so not small eaters!

    Meet my son. Now, you're totally right - ADHD is completely connected to diet. And other sources of bad gut flora. My son has never had sugar (except on special occasions) or antibiotics, but I passed to him bad gut flora and fed him lots of "healthy whole grains" for his first 8 years. In the last 2-3 years, we've had few to no grains at all, and his diet is almost 100% primal. It has made a HUGE difference in his ADD/ODD/SID. It's almost gone. But it's still there.

    So I'm saying yes, it's diet, but also, it's not like a light switch. The gut is like a capacitor - it takes a long time to go bad, and a long time to fix. B/c of that, you will have some cases of attention problems where the child is actually eating well and has for a long time.


    On the toe-walking note, my daughter is a very mild case of toe-walking, and has never had behavior disorders, but gets tics when she eats CW healthy - bad ones. Most of the other cases I know of are much worse on both the toe and the neurological front.
