    Free nutritionist visit...

    Primal Fuel
    So, I just found out that I can see a registered dietitian for free at my university, basically as often as I want (it's paid for, along with various other basic medical procedures with my semester fees). I have lost 30 pounds since Thanksgiving using primal, heavily geared towards fats....the asshole in me wants to go to make an appointment, especially since you have to fill out a food and health survey before hand...then go in for the followups, completely ignoring their advice and continuing to lose weight...

    So obviously, I'm an asshole. I came to terms with this years ago. But, I mean, I've already paid for this with my student fees....might as well take advantage of it, right? haha I mean, I'm getting a full metabolic panel done since it's "free"...

    What do you all think? Worth the shits and giggles?

    Definitely. I do this at my workplace, the hospital. It's hilarious.

    I'd totally do it too. Go in prepared with some literature/research about primal/paleo and have a frank discussion with the dietician about it. You might be suprised at the reaction and it might be a chance to proove to them that there is some validity in this way of eating - particularly if you have the results and the science to support it.

    +1 Lizzielou. I would do it just to see what my panels are and to prove them wrong. Good luck and let us know how it works out for you.

    Especially Tom, this nurse who thinks bacon is killing me. He's pissed that my HDL is higher than his.

    Tempting, but I'd be afraid of coming across as a preachy asshole. Kinda the way I feel when vegans talk to me. Don't be like a vegan!

    Why? If they give free rectal exams, would you go? It's pointless given what we believe on MDA.

    Honestly, it sounds like a waste of time. But the free bloodwork might be worth the effort.

    Maybe try the nice approach though. Not "your ideas suck", but "my ideas worked really well for me". Focus on the veggies and whole foods you eat. Not "I eat bacon 8 times a day and am skinny fuck you and your quinoa". But "I find when I eat a lot of good fats and protein, coupled with lots of veggies, I feel great, something about grains and sugar just makes me feel icky".
