Hi Everyone, I will be 70 in Sept and have been on diets most of my life. I've lost the same 50 lbs 4 or 5 times. A year and a half ago my husband and I started on a low carb diet developed by a heart doctor here in Tucson. We lost a lot of weight and have kept it off. I'm interested in Primal because it allows more animal fat and the use of oils when cooking, which is more satisfying. I have no trouble limiting carbs to vegetables and small amounts of fruits. We eat no pasta, flour products, grains or starchy veg like white potatoes, corn and peas. We are both happy with this way of eating but would like support and new information.
I do have a problem if I go somewhere and there are desserts. I can't stop once I get started. I have no idea how to eat only 1 oz of dark chocolate. I love the stuff.
I'm healthy, no major health problems. I swim every day, not laps but I spend 1 and 1/2 hours in the pool treading water, doing my own style of exercises and paddling around while talking to friends. I walk a little. My favorite thing to do is sit in my recliner with a good book.
I am optimistic and grateful for every experience I've ever had. For me life is growth, love, happiness and willingness to give and receive.
