  • i ate a chocolate bar

    Yes. I ate a caramilk bar. Because I wanted one. I also had a burger from Dairy Queen last week. Because I wanted one. It seems like so many of you people are paranoid about this diet. So many of you freak out when you eat something not primal. You post threads "OMG I ATE A DONUT. AM I GOING TO GAIN 50 LBS AND DIE? OMGWTF PRIMAL!!!!!"

    Get real people. I eat healthy whole nutritious food all the time but, if i really feel for some reason that I want some onion rings or a pizza, then I am going to eat it, because at the same time you have to enjoy life.

    Just stop being paranoid.

        I just completed eating 5 Lindt chocolate bars. It took me a week and a couple days. Only one was above 70% dark. Who's paranoid?

            Recently read "The WillPower Instinct" and you are on the money!

            People are so paranoid and trick themselves into thinking that they didn't cheat their diet. They get so worked up about it that they stress to the point of cheating again. Admitting it and being cool with it is HUGE for being on ANY diet.

            P.S. The Willpower instinct is a great book for snapping any habit

              Who's on a diet?
              Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.

              Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine

                Why do people keep asking me "Can you eat that on your diet?!" To which I respond "See me eating it? Not a diet."

                  It depends. Some people have poor willpower or a history of not sticking to their plans. This would, obviously, lead to panic when they "break" Paleo, as it reminds them of other times they fell off a wagon and they get worried.
                  And then there's folks who literally NEVER eat non-Primally and all the articles with "AVOID" stamped all over them, which reinforce the feelings of guilt. So the "cheaters" turn to a wider community for support. Nothing to get annoyed over, just individual circumstances affecting individual expression.

                      This thread would have been more appropriate around a year ago. I think most people here (and in the health food scene in general) have given up the pseudo-religious diet warrior thing. Then again, there are probably a few who do need the reminder.

                      On a related note, last night, I ate a huge piece of chocolate peanut butter cake (moist chocolate cake with a layer of peanut butter cream, covered with chocolate ganache and buttercream) and a buttercream-topped chocolate cupcake filled with with pumpkin mousse. It was one of the most satisfying goddamned desserts I've ever had.

                        a particular selection of food, especially as designed or prescribed to improve a person's physical condition or to prevent or treat a disease: a diet low in sugar. [or low in carbs? or no grains?]

                        such a selection or a limitation on the amount a person eats for reducing weight: No pie for me, I'm on a diet.[90% of people are in this forum because they are changing their eating habits so they can lose weight.]

                        Heres another issue I have. Maybe someone can explain this better to me but, how is this NOT a diet? Your changing your eating habits to include more of certain foods and less of certain foods. When you consume one of the "less food" its regarding as "cheating" or having a "cheat day". Youre also eating foods to keep, in a perfect world, around 100 carbs or less per day (for the average person) when the food guidelines tells you to eat more than that, therefore; contrary to what people on this form say, it IS A LOW CARB DIET if you do it the proper way.

                        Yes, its a way of life if you decide to follow the workout plan and its a way of life because you plan to be on this diet for the rest of your life but still, its a diet.

                          Well to be fair, if you've been eating consistently low carb/high fat, then suddenly switch gears and cheat with carby/fatty things, you're going to end up bombing yourself with enough calories to kill an elephant.

                            I have a peeve with "going on a diet", and I think that's what other folks here are referring to when they say Paleo/Primal "isn't a diet". This is the way I explain it: http://alicerants.blog.com/2012/10/27/against-diets/

                              A distinction needs to be made between dietary regimes and fad diets. "Dietary regime" ought to refer to a particular mode of eating which is inclusive of certain foods and restrictive of others. "Fad diet" ought to refer to temporary dietary practices followed for short-sighted gains, often overly-restrictive of certain food types (i.e. carbs, fats, etc.) while strangely allowing of others (i.e. refined floods, meal replacements, etc.). A fad diet is a specific type of dietary regime, but the opposite is not necessarily true.

                              Primal/Paleo-styled eating can certainly be considered a dietary regime, but only certain strains might be able to be classed as fad diets (zero carb, raw/rotting meat, etc.). There is nothing wrong with following a dietary regime, especially if it proves to be healthful.

                              As far as this being a "low carb" diet, I disagree. I eat over 200 grams of carbs per day from real food (fruit, white rice). This lifestyle is not as restrictive as some make it seem.
