    There's a documentary on this topic: BBC - Science & Nature - Horizon

    Here's a link to the first part of it: Part 1 of 5 - The Ghost in your Genes - BBC Horizon - YouTube

    Yeah, 'junk' is completely relative. My kids have given up begging for me to buy a loaf of bread at the supermarket for them (just one loaf! please!). Baking biscuits and muffins with grandma (using real flour!) or me making 'Dad's World famous homemade pizza' is what blows their mind.

    Kids are great.
    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 think alot of it comes down the maternal line. my paternal grandmother was in that neck of the woods at the same time. was half jewish and dodged the camps. she did the refuge thing with the russians chasing them. they all starved badly too. i dont know what they ate when they did get to eat and there is no one left to ask now. i do know they all lived on toast and jam and tea in the depression. they also got fruit as it was there and easy to get and seafood for the same reason.

    The book "Deep Nutrition" is good and all about the generation effect as well as from one sibling to the next. Very WAP of course.

    Good morning from rainy London folks

    I bought a thermometer yesterday and just took my morning temperature (using Matt Stone's method): 95.9F. Can this be right?! I know my body has a lot of difficulty in regulating temperature (freeze in the cold, sweat profusely in the heat), but this seems really low.

    Also, my good sleep is wearing off, even though I'm eating 3.5K cals a day (it's 5am here now, I woke up half an hour ago after going to bed at 12.30) It was like this yesterday too. And I'm waking up hungry, which is the kicker. I can understand waking up wanting breakfast when I'm starving myself, but 3.5K cals a day? Doesn't make sense...

    Just googled it - looks interesting! (What does WAP mean?)

    Prior to your initiative to "eat the food", were you or had you been eating particularly low calorie and low carb?

    95.9 is not a normal temperature at all. There are a few reasons you could have this temperature:
    1) you slept with mouth open - mouth breathing can generate an inaccurate read
    2) your thermometer battery is low (assuming it's digital)
    3) your thermometer was really cold and didn't have time to warm up to your actual temperature before beeping (assuming again that it's digital). In this situation, Matt Stone recommends warming up the tip of the thermometer with your hand for a few seconds to avoid false readings.
    4) you're hypothyroid

    Why do you need to take morning temperature? Sorry, I must have missed it somewhere earlier in the thread.
