In college, friends developed the Primal Scream, which was accomplished into a towel after I complained about my shattered nerves. I had a disappointment with my blood sugar this morning (111 fasting, sigh) and was reading about what I should do. Inevitably you run into the low-carb lifestyle which leads you to the Primarian Diet. Which sounds great, and I think has a lot going for it, but I am always stopped by the following:
1. How do we know what primitive man ate, really? and
2. Primitive man, as far we know, was not known for his longevity, and
3. Plant based diets seem to do better in studies than ones involving tons of meat. My dad was eating Atkins which did great things for his blood sugar, but his lipids were going in the wrong direction. The cardiologist wanted him off it.
That said, I made an effort to drop my carbs a bit today. Felt fine and plenty full. 136 grams carbs and 39% fat, yikes. I also (drumroll) walked four miles today, so my burn should end up pretty good. Intake 1675.
