    Addiction is your body screaming for the nutrients it needs.

    Drug addictions are because of the nature (addictive) of the drug (including cigarettes) involved. They are designed and modified to be addictive (cigarettes) or it's a part of their nature to be addictive (heroin) therefore, avoid starting them at ALL COSTS.
    One interesting thing I've noticed is that I used to be really sort of ADD about choosing food to eat. What I mean is that I was always seeking out new and different types of food all the time. Being frugal, I usually saved leftovers, but I rarely remembered to eat them. The times I did remember them, I often couldnt bring myself to eat them. The idea of eating the same thing more than two days in a row actually physically upset me. When I first started reading posts here on MDA and heard that Mark tends to eat the same sorts of meals (big ass salads, especially) over and over again, it actually scared me. Luckily, of course, I decided to try primal anyway, figuring that eating the same things over and over werent *required*.

    But now, the COMPLETE opposite has happened. I can make a big vat of pork stew, or a huge chunk of meat, and eat it for DAAAAAAYS. I actually crave the same things over and over, and have to force myself to try something new ;D

    My theory is that when I was eating traditional SAD foods, my body was craving nutrients, knew it wasnt getting it from the food I was eating, so was constantly driving me to seek out new food sources. Now that my meals are loaded with fats and veggies, my body is much more willing to be happy with it.
    "Since going primal, I've found that there are very few problems that cannot be solved with butter and/or bacon fat."

    Carbohydrates: How carbs fit into a healthy diet - MayoClinic.com

    "The 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends that carbohydrates make up 45 to 65 percent of your total daily calories. So, if you get 2,000 calories a day, between 900 and 1,300 calories should be from carbohydrates. That translates to between 225 and 325 grams of carbohydrates a day."

    Holy smokes!

    My fridge recently broke while I was out of town for a couple days, causing a large portion of the food inside to go bad. I was telling my friend, who is quite skinny-fat, about it, and he said that he usually just stocks his pantry with boxed and canned items and then buys fresh food as he needs it or as he's going to cook it, and that I should do the same so that I won't have food in the fridge to go bad if it breaks again.

    I looked at him like I didn't understand and said, "But I only eat fresh food. I can't go grocery shopping everyday."

    Good point. In my defense though, I did have a lot of food in the freezer, and that was fine. Still, I probably keep a week's worth of fresh food in the fridge at any given time.

    In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.

    Time to retry giving up tea and coffee again soon. I am sure you are right, above.
