Hi, my name is Michelle and I am new to the forum but have been reading Mark's books, blogs, and visiting links from this site for about a month now. My husband and I decided to go primal about a week ago after much discussion and are doing alright with the diet, but my main problem is my children. Specifically, my four-year-old son. Since we have cut out his favorite foods (mac and cheese, pizza, and pancakes) he has been awful. He cries at the drop of a hat, refuses to eat anything green, and begs for McDonald's, which is weird because we never ate McDonald's before. Is he going through withdrawals, or maybe just trying to exert what power he feels he can over his food choices? Also, he and my seven-year-old daughter are constantly hungry now, asking for a snack as they clear their places from the table. Are there any other parents out there who went through this? I have searched this forum and other blog posts but can't seem to find the answers regarding children that I am looking for. Does it get better? Help!
