  • A Minor Victory, but a Major Personal Achievment

    After many long years with an incredibly stable (but too high) weight, and being Type 2 diabetic, I saw the benefits Primal would have on my diabetes.

    However, after months of slowing modifying my diet towards primal I had still shown no weight change My diabetic numbers were the best I'd seen since diagnosis 7 years ago, but still... I needed to lose weight.

    So decided in January to be stricter, and after 3 weeks my girlfriend reported bad breath! YESSSSSS! I have never been so pleased to be told I had bad breath... I had reached ketosis!

    Anyway, the pounds finally started moving, and after hovering on the cusp for a week, this morning I hit my first target: being sub 210lbs (15st in UK). I have not been below 15st in over 18 years, so this, although it is only a net loss of 5lbs, its broken through a barrier that has been there for over 40% of my life.

    I've not set a target weight... I have no idea what that should be for me. But my next goal is a 36" waist... again not seen since university. 2.5" to go

    All I can say is, a big thanks to the creators/promoters of this way of life.
