I know, it does take a lot to finally admit that no matter how much of the good stuff I've been eating, my body still isn't responding to it very well. I can now see why a somewhat drastic shift in dietary choices may be wise. Further elimination is not helping.
Your paragraph about the primal message has really put a smile on my face. I'm so happy when the wether is finally good enough to sit outside in (here in England) and I love just sitting in the sun thinking about Malibu for some reason! (not the drink) I definitely feel isolated in my community, my home and my job. I can't relate to anyone as much as I can on here what this lifestyle is about. I told someone I haven't had McDonalds in 8 years and they really judged me! Whatever, I'm not here to people please 24/7 and don't care what people think about me. The coconut thing is more about the context they are consumed in. For example coconut flour is mixed with sweeteners and eggs and is very dense which doesn't work for me. Shredded coconut is mixed with fat and protein which is easier for me.
I can on most days feel that living at home isn't helping my health... That's more to do with the opposite views I have with my family. To me, my Father would be much 'happier' if I was in a 9-5 job I hated just to earn some money, because that's what he did from the age of 18 and still does. I don't think like that. What's the point of burning out on a job you hate just to get a pay check? (which is why I'm holding out for my dream career - I'm only 22 so people should realise that whilst I have a lot of youth left, I'm not simply dragging it out)
I'm s excited about this experiment! It seems like it will be much more relaxing that planning meals to the ingredient like I normally do.
Thanks for your help.
