  • UK (via Ireland) Newbie!

    Hello everyone,

    I'm an Irish girl living in the UK. I'm 31 years old. Just turned primal over a week ago. My PB book was delivered yesterday so I'm looking forward to having a good read. I haven't given up everything yet (beans - but only had them once) but I've cut out the worst i.e sugar and grains. I haven't found it hard so far even though I am usually a sugar fiend Temptation has been put in my way a lot over the past week (cakes, creme eggs, pizza) but I wasn't really bothered. I used Lent as my excuse!! My OH is a carb fan and he thinks that this is just a fad so I'm hoping that when he sees me changing that he'll get on board!

    Welcome. Beans are fine if you soak them the traditional way. I eat a lot of them. That isn't official primal of course. But it works fine for me.
    Ancestral Health Info

    I design websites and blogs for a living. If you would like a blog or website designed by someone who understands Primal, see my web page.

    Primal Blueprint Explorer My blog for people who are not into the Grok thing. Since starting the blog, I have moved close to being Archevore instead of Primal. But Mark's Daily Apple is still the best source of information about living an ancestral lifestyle.

        Greetings Irish, nice to see another of us here.
        Do what you love and do it often. If you don't like something, change it. if you don't like your job, quit. If you don't have enough time, stop watching tv. If you are looking for the love of your life, stop, they will be waiting for you when you start doing the things you love. Stop over analyzing, life is simple. When you eat, appreciate every last bite. Some opportunities only come once, seize them.
