    LOL! Sure it did. We all want to think our way is the way. No big. Do what is best for you. 80/20? 50/50? Ditching wheat and bad oils, and never eating at chain restaurants again is probably going to do most folks a world of good. Adhering like a zealot is often the road to ultimate failure.

    I can see both sides. Selecting quality nourishment is a self-esteem issue on some level. I deserve vital flora and fauna, not powder and syrup.

    At the same time life is too short for monastic self-flagellation--I gotta sample everything at least once.

    I don't think it touched a nerve. I think people were very helpfully trying to explain to you that there's more than one way to do this and they were using their own experiences as examples.

    My wife used to snack very often. When we switched to more primal eating, she was still snacking a lot (primal approved nuts, etc). The ONLY way for her to get out of this habit, which she has understood was a symptom of a deeper issue, was to adopt the one-meal-a-day many here have adopted. Because I was not very hungry myself at morning and even less at lunch, I went on the same eating schedule, effortlessly I would say for we were already "fat-adapted".

    To the point now: this eating schedule has helped my wife break away from snacking all the time. And I mean: COMPLETELY.
    When we eat our early dinner, we are hungry for real (sometimes not so much) which translates into wanting nutritious stuff : fish, eggs, veggies with a good amount of healthy fat. When we had baked some treats for our kids (flaxseed muffins, almond meal buns, etc), we sometimes end the dinner with one bun or muffin but more often than not, we are so full we don't even feel like indulging in these things.

    I am all for cooking various stuff, including baking, but our experience shows that depending eating habits and schedules, you will feel more or less compelled to go for these treats. For us, the one-meal-a-day schedule has been the best move after ditching SAD foods. We feel utterly guilt-free about what we eat, and our mood and energy has been greatly elevated!! I warmly recommend it for people that are already "fat-adapted" (a few months into primal eating) but who would like to ditch older habits (snacking in particular).

    Thanks for reading,

    James

    Very true on ultimate success.

    I think I'm more OCD than Aspie.

    In honor of this thread I had coconut flour pancakes for brunch! Man they were good! I feel satisfied and have no urge to eat a bag of flour. Yay! Still not gonna make this a regular habit but it was a nice treat.

    Agree with the original poster, it all becomes a bit silly.
