  • 4th primal day

    And I just decided to come here and say hi!

    I would like to say hi to all my fellow grokies! I just joined this community after an extensive search to find a solution to my eating and lifestyle disorders.

    I'm a 25 year old male currently residing in Tokyo, Japan. After steadily losing wait the last year I reached an ugly plateau. My main problem is that I have been using food as a "drug" since I was a kid. If I felt sad or down I would just gulp down some sweets or pizza or whatever to feel good.

    Only since last year I've been completely aware of this problem. I even looked into Alcoholics Anonymous related stuff to see if I could apply those solutions to my gluttony... Far from it based on the different nature of alcohol and food.

    Anyway my experience in this four days has been quite good. I feel quite optimistic and enthusiastic about primal lifestyle. This might be the change I need in order to reach my goals.

    I will rely on you guys support, very nice to meet you all!

      Hi. My name is Hedonist and I'm a carb over eater. Well, there is Overeaters Anonymous. I tried it many years ago. Not sure it would work with primal though. But we are here as a support group. Good luck with primal.

            My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we'll change the world. - Jack Layton
