    Newbie here, just wanted to share my experience today which I know will make you all groan.

    Went to see a new Nurse Practitioner today for a physical and to review blood work. My labs were all very good, even though I was eating crap when they were taken. Thyroid numbers all normal, fasting blood glucose of 98. I need to lose a substantial amount of weight (about 100 lbs) so I was interested to hear their advice (without me mentioning Primal). Here was the advice I was given -

    -Follow the American Diabetes Association diet (no coconut oil, butter, lots of whole wheat bs, only the leanest of meats etc)

    -Eat 6-7 small meals a day to "regulate glucose and avoid wild swings"

    -NEVER skip a meal

    -Keep lots of "healthy" snacks around - the infamous "100 calorie packs" was brought up several times. She encouraged "grazing" throughout the day.

    -She recommended 2 supplements - green coffee and "some kind of berry" that she doesn't know much about, but Dr. Oz (!!) had them on his show and endorses them as safe metabolism enhancers! I almost fell out of my chair.

    She also wrote me a prescription for Metformin.....it will go unfilled.

    I was trying out this practice but now see it is not for me. What a waste of time!

    I don't know - you might want to stick with her.

    And just do the exact opposite of what she says.

    Oops sorry, don't know how I missed the doggy theme to this conversation.

    Because some people are fat partially because of what I call the package syndrome - I open the package, I eat the package or simply The serving size is the package. This is obviously not the case as a bag of chips could be 6 or 10 servings, but if the bag is open, well, you can't stop at just one right? So you eat the whole bag. With a 100 calorie pack you eat the whole pack - it is 100 calories. It is not 1600 calories. Of course, you can only fool yourself for so long and chances are you will eat a ton later but in that moment you are making a 'healthier' choice.

    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    I have a problem with the writing of the prescription for Metforming with your fasting blood glucose number in the normal range.

    I'd make a big deal about that one.

    Also, you should track your diet and go back to them when you've reached your weight loss goal. Have a meeting with them to teach 'em a thing or two.

    The more you learn about the conventional healthcare system the scarier and more broken it seems to be. Also, good luck with your journey! You're going to do great.
