I use a combo of cast iron, stainless steel, and non-stick (I live w/ my mom, so I have to use whatever's in her kitchen). I cook with butter, coconut oil, bacon fat when I have it, and olive oil (low heat or broiling). I drink only room temperature, double-filtered water from home, though I'll admit I don't drink enough of it. I stay as far from gluten as I can, and the only grains I eat come in the form of gluten-free cookies and bread (rice flour). I'm currently taking fish oil, L-Glutamine, a probiotic, and Natural Calm before bed. I was taking a multi-vitamin, but stopped when I noticed that it contained soy. I also take Now Foods Super Enzymes, 1 capsule with every meal. I will also on occasion take Vit D, when I'm feeling low or haven't been in the sun enough.

Mostly, I'm forcing myself to eat as often as possible, as much fat as possible, and not worry about sugar intake. I'm not chowing down pasta & donuts, but the few un-Primal things I do eat are carefully chosen and enjoyed thoroughly. Once my weight starts to creep back up, I'll go fully Primal, and clean out all the "bad" stuff. I just need to get my weight back up for now...
