Primal Results

From Mark’s Daily Apple:

Where Are They Now?: I’ve made a number of positive changes by going Primal. The first (and most obvious) is that I’ve dropped about 80 pounds since August 13, 2009. The second is that by stopping grains, sugars, and starch-loaded foods, I’ve eliminated my arthritis, my IBS, and my migraines, and I’ve brought my blood sugars down to normal (they’ve been there since mid-November, usually in the mid-80s to mid-90s). My doctor is absolutely flabbergasted by my progress. I’m still losing about 8 to 10 pounds a month, too. And I’m no longer in a wheelchair! I can walk quickly and sometimes even run for short bursts. It’s amazing.

If it weren’t for this site, I’d be sucking down my hypoglycemic pills, hating life, and wondering how I’d ever get my sugars out of the 300s again. Mark, I can’t thank you enough for giving me my life back. Check back with me in another six months, and grok on!

True stories from people following the primal way.

You gotta love results like these! I’ve experienced something like this myself, and so have friends of mine. I have a friend that was borderline diabetic and overweight. He’s now slim and trim, and no longer close to being diabetic. And like the guy above, his blood chemistry is outstanding (mine too). I gotta really thank my doctor. Several years ago when I talked to him about this approach to eating, he said that most doctors won’t admit it because it’s not the accepted conventional wisdom, but it is exactly correct. If you eat like a caveman, you’ll lose weight and get healthy.

The Masters is Finally Here!

The winner of the [[Masters]] is presented with a green jacket, for those that don’t know

OK, so who’s going to be charging on Sunday afternoon around Amen Corner to claim the Green Jacket this year? What are your predictions for [[Tiger]]?

I’m thinking [[Tiger]] finishes in the top ten, probably ahead of every other big name. The winner this year is going to be someone we don’t expect at all. Phil Mickelson will miss the cut, and Ernie Els will finish middle of the pack, as will Steve Stricker.

But who knows? I only know one thing: I’ll be watching on Sunday as this year’s champion is crowned!
