  • New to Primal Lifestyle

    I plan on going becoming Primal in November (After XC season and a marathon) and wanted to know if anyone knows where I can get some good primal food in Wake Forest, NC. Also if you have any tips on how to survive the low carb flu I'm sure to get.
    Thanks!

    Carb Flu

    Just started Monday. I have to say, I have been having some headaches, but other than that feel about the same as always. Maybe the SAD diet was making me feel as bad as the carb flu does... Anyway, so far so good and looking forward to a lean strong healthy body.

    Best of luck!

      Hey, I'm in Raleigh. Your best & closest bet would be the Wake Forest Farmer's Market, there are a lot of farms around Louisburg/Rolesville area that sell there. Lots of local grassfed meat to be found, I am not sure what grocery stores are in WF, but there is a Whole Foods on Six Forks Rd now off of 540. Best of luck

        Welcome Gavin. Yeah, good idea to wait until the off season to do the full carbs/fat primal thing, although you can incorporate lots of the overall plan now.

            Why wait?

              Because he is in XC season and training for a marathon. Duh. Does not need carb flu and major body readjustments. But as I said, lots of the 10 principles of primal can be incorporated now.

                Carb flu comes from low carb intake, doesn't it? What problem is there with cutting grains and sugar, maintaining a higher-carb intake from primal-friendly carbs such as potatoes, yams, and white rice?

                  Nothing wrong with that at all. In fact, a good plan.
