  • Hi, about to restart this

    Ok, abit of backround, about 2 years ago I went on a 2 month all paleo/primal diet, lost about 8lbs and felt good. Then I stopped, I don't remember why exactly but now I have a family to contend my time with and finally my gf was convinced that paleo was something she would at least try(she's breastfeeding so can't do it to the letter)

    So, I from today am back on the wagon so to speak, as I stand I am currently 18st 4lbs, almost matching my heaviest weight, I look fat, I feel lazy, tired and stressed out feeling like I can't be bothered to do anything, somehow a spark hit me to re-do this and change my life.

    So I'm back on the paleo diet at about 80% for now (I'm cooking for the family so will be having the odd carb here and there, no sugar or nuts at all) on top of that I will be doing a intense workout called "Insanity" for 60 days, after which I will do it's sequel "Asylum" this will finally lead into me doing Crossfit which I've been dying to do as I love extreme sports and want to do them again.

    I'll post a pic later and chart my progress here daily

    Welcome. Mark did a recent post on pregnancy I think. Primal is extra important when you are pregnant.

    If you are doing that much exercise, you are going to need extra carbs such as root vegetables.

    Good luck!

          There is no reason why your GF can't follow primal exactly while breastfeeding, she just needs to make sure she is eating enough.
