    The surest way to be criticized, lectured, looked down on and otherwise hated is to mention this way of eating. Don't do it. Mark's website is a master of search engine optimization so they'll come across the info soon enough.

    I asked my wife to read the PB book, but she got kinda stuffy about it. She "believes" in weight watchers. I guess I'll just have to show her the results as we go along.

    I ran into a friend today and she inquired and followed with the "wow, no bread"....

    BUT, I mentioned that I would eat something like a steak with a side of buttered spinach or a sweet potato with butter or green beans cooked in coconut milk. And bacon and eggs. And all sorts of really good stuff.

    She kind of got the trade off.

    I think most people envision typical diet food (chicken breast, steamed veggies AND no bread). They don't realize the obscene goodness of mixing fat and veggies.

    It helps to follow "no bread" with "unlimited bacon". :P
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    I could never do this without bacon. It's become a condiment/garnishment. I put it on everything.

    I used to be someone who thought I couldn't do primal. A good friend went primal several months ago. The last time I saw him, he'd become quite evangelical about it, plus he looked considerably more fit than I did compared to the last time and I'd run a marathon in the meantime. So I decided to try it and now I'm the evangelist. Of course DH's family keeps telling me multiple times a day that we'll both gain it all back when we go off our "diet". They can't understand that it is a lifestyle change. Maybe they'll change their minds as time passes and our results don't go away. A few friends have been interested and one said she'd try it.

    Most people my age and younger have zero kitchen confidence. They don't savor the commercial food and actually complain about how gross it is but they draw a blank on how to feed themselves without it.

    I had a friend berate me about staring primal a few months ago. He challenged everything Mark said. He decided to "get in shape" too. He started calorie restricting and running.

    He is fatter now then he was then and I am losing more fat everyday. He still thinks this diet is stupid.
    The above should be viewed as complete and utter nonsense.
