The Strength to Recover: Wendy’s Powerful Primal Story

Where to begin? My earliest memories of food and health started, of course, with family. I remember that my mother was never happy with her weight and was always on some sort of diet. As a little girl, I remember the Slim Fast shakes, the diet pills that would “puff up” in your stomach, leaving […]

Contest Results: Show Your Groceries

Way back on August 7 at the beginning of the Primal Blueprint Health Challenge I asked you to show your groceries. (Luckily no one was confused and thought I meant shouting groceries.) It was great to get a glimpse into the lives of other PBers and to be able to attach faces to names in […]

The Look on the Doctor’s Face Was Priceless

My journey started with a diagnosis of Diabetes (type II) on November 17th, 2008.

Contest: Tweet This. Win Clubbells.

Update: This contest is now closed. The Prize: Clubbells! Like Dick Butkus, clubbells are heavy, intense, and beautiful in motion. It’s the one item Grok would keep if he was stranded on a deserted island. I’ve posted about how Primal these things are, and now you get to win the best clubbells ever made. Today’s […]

Pictures Don’t Tell the Whole Story

Mark, I just got back from my endocrinology appointment when I saw the latest contest. I’m no picture of health yet but things are looking a heck of a lot better than they did before I started on Primal Blueprint. I’ll start at the beginning. Six months ago my type II Diabetes was completely out […]

Less Cardio, Less Fat, More Muscle

I’ve been a distance runner who fights my weight for the past 24+ years. I started running to lose weight in 1985, when I weighed 180. Right now, I’m in the mid-190s. Funny how that worked (not). Two-plus years ago, I started lifting, which helped with fat loss. Some of the time. As long as […]

Contest Results: Primal Fridge Pics

It’s another picture-fest! In our ongoing week of reader created content, and following up reader-submitted breakfast photos and lunch photos, we’ve got pics of your Primal fridges. I should point out that many of the emails I received noted that their fridges aren’t entirely Primal. Some are just taking the first steps toward becoming Primal. […]
