    And it's highly unlikely that a diet based on "healthy" whole grains isn't/wasn't doing a ton more damage than an occasional plate of pancakes, slice of pizza, or 6-pack of craft beer.

    I've found that my personal tolerance for the negative effects of gluten-containing grains is drinking beer once per year on a camping trip I've attended since I was a teenager.

    Some people are willing to give it up completely. Others give it up, except for when they're out with friends, traveling, or just on that odd occasion when they really want a pepperoni pizza.

    We all are responsible for educating ourselves and making our own choices.

    While we are all responsible for educating ourselves and making our own choices, many of the symptoms of gluten intolerance are silent. We may only become aware of them when it is too late and the effects are irreversible.

    the thing is, i eat gluten so infrequently that i honestly don't give a shit. i had 4 slices of pizza one day 2 months ago. i ate some cookies at christmas-time. and 2 weeks ago, instead of drinking liquor i had 2 beers with my buddy to in rememberance on the anniversary of the death of his father. i'm definitely not basing my diet on gluten containing grains, so i think that at most, gluten 10 times per year probably isn't the end of the world

    OP, 50% is better than no%
    beautiful
    yeah you are

    I mean there's so many ants in my eyes! And there are so many TVs, microwaves, radios... I think, I can't, I'm not 100% sure what we have here in stock.. I don't know because I can't see anything! Our prices, I hope, aren't too low!

    That sounds like real life to me and totally harmless. I drink lots of beer at xmas with no problem, not much since, but will do the same next xmas/birthday/any excuse I can find

    Ah okay. In that case:

    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    I actually do not have a problem with meals ..I would say I am close to 100% (even going out to eat) ..However my problem has always been my snack choices..My household is not completely on board so there is always popcorn ,chips or Cheez-its around the house unfortunately..And unfortunately I do grab a handful if I feel like it...t is what it is and I don't stress out about it

    If you're happy with the results you're getting doing Primal during the weak and cheats on weekends then why worry about it?
