Anyone want a pizza?
Paleos and low-carbers probably think they're immune to the law of gravity too. They'd jump off a building and fly due to the absence of grains in their digestive tract.*
*even though we now know that Paleolithic man ate grains too.
Good for you Lacuna, I would suggest you take it a step further and move on to CT follow the protocol as set by Kruse, don't jump to the end.
As for Dream, he is as dogmatic as he claims everyone else to be. It is what it is.
If you know anything about me by now, D, it's that I am not religious. I'm not wedded 'til death do us part to a paleo lifestyle. For now - it works and I will continue to eat this way as long as it does.
I am not totally eliminating foods I enjoy on a permanent basis. For now I can still get my chocolate fix with stevia and enjoy fruit when consumed moderately. I've gotten past missing potatoes but can anticipate times in the future when I will eat them occasionally. Bread, pasta and rice I don't miss at all.
As for having "[my] cake and eating it too," after I make goal I wouldn't turn down a small piece if it were someone's birthday. When I hit the number on the scale I am aiming for it will be cause for celebration and I have every intention of maintaining it and never again finding it necessary to hold myself to a strict dietary regimen. I will have re-acquired self discipline in my diet which, sadly, has been lacking in recent years.
I'm also dogmatic about 2 + 2 = 4 and slugs are slimy, stuff like that. But yes, I'm with you. Math and science are annoying. :roll:
you win Dream....I am done........good luck to you.
So, would you say that you're using paleo as a sort of 'reset strategy' ? I can see where that might work. I applaud your determination. And in this you separate yourself from the typical paleo in that you are taking responsibility for your eating habits and are not fobbing weight-gain off on certain foods or food groups. I only wish that more people would exercise this sort of maturity.
The devil is in the dose, not the food.
So, the guy who waves flying spaghetti monsters in religious folks' faces can't take a little bit of rough-and-tumble ? :wink:
A slug is an imperial unit of mass, expressed using feet.
There is the blob as well, similar to the slug, but expressed in inches.
Mmmm. Spaghetti, with some hot Italian sausage.
No I am just tired of hashing it out with you, believe what you want.
I do find it funny that a guy who was selling house alarms for a living a year ago is now an expert on human physiology
I wasn't making fun of slugs!
Well, at least there is some science behind security systems. Can't say the same for what you're selling. Don't be bitter that the young whippersnapper called you on it. :wink:
Gatorcise, don't be so quick to bail! As sardonic as things may get over here, there's no reason to take any of this stuff personally. Dream tries to be a post-count bully but he really means no harm.
Lacuna, great story. Being paleo doesn't mean you have to cut out -- or even minimize -- fruit though. And dark chocolate is probably one of the least worrisome non-paleo indulgences when enjoyed on occasion.
We now know that Paleolithic peoples were chocoholics!
Synopsis of the debate so far:
Dream: "The obesity rate has tripled during the last thirty years. Research shows that activity levels are unchanged, over that time, but that daily caloric intake has increased by some 500 calories. So, logically the increase in calories has led to the recent explosion in obesity."
Nicho: "No! It's the High Fructose, dummy!"
96: "It's because we're not shivering enough, moron!"
I admit I chuckled at some of your celiac comments, Dream. At some point I will take time to craft a more articulate argument against your eat-all-foods-in-moderation mantra. Here's a hint: it doesn't actually violate any laws of thermodynamics.
Truth be told (if we're allowed to spill the beans), paleo does not violate the laws of thermodynamics. This is because people who go paleo (and lose weight) are establishing a calorie deficit.
The thing that annoys me is the religious-like belief that eating paleo is better than placebo. Of course it is not. You can attain paleo-like results by establishing a calorie deficit any other way, including diets which allow you to eat the foods you truly enjoy.
But I'll admit that The Anything Goes Diet doesn't sound as cool as 'Paleo.' :wink:

Forget any diet that says I can't have that. If caveman only knew.
