  • Already a low-carber, ready for the rest!

    I'm a recovered macaroni and cheese lover with bad heartburn issues-- go figure!
    Eating low carb the last 6 months has helped me feel great and look great too-- with minimal work I must say. I'm an avid snowboarder, and like hiking and frisbee golf in the months without the snow. I recently had a pretty serious "bonk" on a bike ride up a mountain, and searching around I found Mark's site. The material sounds just like me and my eating and fitness style, but seems like it will take me to the next (barefoot?) step on my journey and give me some much needed resources. This is exiting-- so HELLO there!

    I came in from low carb (and gluten free) also... Welcome!

      I love disc golf, but I haven't gone in forever. I need to get out and throw again.

      I've found Primal to be easy and very successful at making me feel great. Hope you do too!

        I used to have bad heartburn a few years ago. I know it sounds counter-intuitive, but next time it flares up, try taking a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar. It helps with the taste if you keep it in the fridge.

        Prilosec and Zantac only seemed to make it worse in the long run, back when I had heartburn issues. I really don't have any at all anymore.

          I'm a low-carber, too! I have been following the Primal Blueprint for a month, and I have to say that I feel so much better just by giving up Artificial Sweetners! Welcome! I'm a newbie, too!

            I came in too from Atkins and low carb. Of course i only need to lose ten or fifteen pounds. I notice that with carbs i would get terrible heartburn
            every day!!! And stopping the carbs and eating more primal the heartburn is gone. I cheated the other day and had popcorn and i got heartburn
            soon after. No more popcorn for me. Guess it's nuts now. The cure for heartburn for me was no carbs!

              Greets, just started making the switch last week from LC to PB. Pretty easy really if you're switching from LC already. The key for me is not freaking out about taking in 50+ carbs a day.

                ok.. so I am not alone here. Adkins said 20 net carbs and sometimes that was really tough but ok.. and with PB its 50-100...yikes! I eat lots of veggies but still am not getting all my carbs. Nuts are out- allergic

                  Definitely not just you. I feel guilty when I look at my dailyburn stats each day and I see my carb numbers and technically they're not even really as high as they should be (according to PB). I've been staying right around 50 or slightly less.

                    So, just curious. How do you all manage keeping the carbs below 50g? I'm assuming no fruit, no nuts. .. what else?

                      very little fruit, mostly out of habit not because I do not like it. For the past 2 days I have added some fruit to help boot my carb intake. Also, most veggies I eat are raw and the carbs are usually lower with raw. No nuts because I am allergic.

                        Same, not a lot of fruit for me. I'm down with the veggies and I love almonds even though they're on the "meh" list. I've got to start eating some higher carb veggies.
