speaking of bulletproof coffee (currently in my travel mug on my desk - nobody knows there's butter in it!)... someone who always comments on how "strange" my lunch is (because I have things like avocados, hard-boiled eggs, carrots, apples, etc. instead of a sandwich) had NO CLUE that sugar was addictive... I'll give her a break 'cause she's in high school, but... c'mon, what are they teaching kids these days!?

Weight does NOT equal health -- ditch the scale, don't be a slave to it!
So as sad as it is, the way I see it...if the horrible truth about sugar is the only huge gap in health knowledge for kids in school now, it's at least a step in the right direction.
Overheard in the Y:
"I'm just going to run until I lose 5 pounds."
The gentleman who orders supplies for my office building just showed me a cabinet full of sugar in the breakroom. Literally, an entire cabinet of canisters of white sugar for employees to use in their coffee.
I asked him "We have all that sugar, but not a single grain of salt?"
His response: "I'm not allowed to order salt. H.R. says it isn't good for you."
You know all those things you have always wanted to do? You should go do them.
Nah.. I was always aware "they" were out to get me.. even before I became Primal..... Now I can just run faster if they find me-Dino Hunter

I believe in early eating and digestion. Your body needs to repair itself during sleep when it's not getting overworked by what you just ate.
I don't practice what I preach though I need to stop gaming.
