Hi Joe and I don't know if this fits bizarre or funny, but when I told a co-worker (... who also wants to lose weight and get off her blood pressure medicine) that I was going primal and described it to her she just said, "I hope you will be ok"... I am determined to show her that I indeed "will be ok.. better than ok!"
I choose love, joy and freedom, open my heart and allow wonderful things to flow into my life.
The best comment came from one of my daughter's friends. It was from the heart and went something like this: NO GRAIN, NO SUGAR, NO DAIRY, NO CANDY, NO JOY, NO PUPPY DOGS NO FUN!! I thought that was a pretty good summary coming from a 15-year-old of what people think our lifestyle is like. Two days later she had a huge piece of a low-carb raw nut cheesecake that I made.
Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it's a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they're terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

Actually. My DH had (and still has) no clue what eating "paleo" or "primal" is or was. But, before I switched over, he felt that he should inform me that the "healthy cereal" I was eating was "pig food". I thought it was funny at the time, but turns out he was absolutely correct.
