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.
OP, 50% is better than no%

"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?
