  • Just got my copy of The Primal Blueprint!



    Hi All,


    Not sure if this is the best way to jump into the group. But I recently joined MDA, and received my copy of PB today!! Pretty excited already being about 40 pages in so far. Looking forward to the success of applying the changes to my daily regime.

    Congrats! I'm waiting for mine to come in still. I'm interested to see the differences between PB and paleo, since I understand there are quite a few. Good luck going primal!

        I got mine y'day, yeah ordered it from the site - took about 3 or 4 days to get it. I want to finish GCBC before I start PB. For now, I've placed it next to the chair the hub usually sits in, in the hope that his curiosity might be piqued and that he'd atleast flip through it.

          Thumbs up, Maba. LOL. Hopefully he takes a peek! Luckily, my husband is on board with me for this. I have already finished reading the book, now he's reading it.

            I have my book on my husband's nightstand, but he has yet to find time to read it.


            He (surprisingly) has been following my lead, full-force now! We exercise together in the mornings and I must say, it's definitely strengthening our relationship!


            He admitted to me that he used to drink at least 3 - 4 sugary drinks a day. That meant about 2 or 3 redbulls and a Coke or two/ day, or vice-versa!! :-O


            The book is invaluable. I want to 'loan' it to several people, but refuse to because I want it back and I don't want to 'cast my pearls before swine' (ie give it to someone unwilling to read it and then I never get it back!).

              SF, are you enjoying "exercising" with your husband in the mornings? hehe.


              Sorry... every time I say I exercised or am about to with my husband, SOMEone makes a sex joke.

              Eating lots but still hungry? Eat more fat. Mid-day sluggishness? Eat more fat. Feeling depressed or irritable? Eat more fat. People think you've developed an eating disorder? Eat more fat... in front of them.

                Ha ha! Too true! I've had some wise-cracks from my comedian Facebook friends about that!

                    Hi folks, I'm new here also. Just got my book 2 days ago, about 50 pages in and wish I had more time to read each time I do. Anyway, it's a great group from what I can tell after reading so many posts. I'm already migrating into PB and gathering recipes.


                    I also hope to get my s.o. to read the book but she cannot be bullied into it, if you know what I mean. I just keep talking about it and how funny it is and, well, we'll see.

                      Hi, Me new here. Ok, that was my stab at cavewomanspeak.... Looks great. Just ordered the book and I hope it gets here quickly. All I know is that processed crap doesn't work for me and I like a little fruit once in a while. Any ideas for me to start on before I actually get the book?


                      Ugh,

                        Carrie, I poured over all of Mark's links in the "Primal 101" page here on the site until I got my book. You can still get the gist of the basics, especially the foods to avoid and to eat heartily of.


                        The book just goes into more detail about the physiological reasons behind the recommendations, etc.


                        I loved my book and I normally don't buy such 'one-man's ideas' type of books.

                          Heya Sassa,


                          Thanks. I'm still trying to figure out the basics. I didn't have long earlier today when I stumbled over this to study it. I'll read the Primal 101 page. Meanwhile, I'm just going to start sliding the foods we shouldn't be into outta my house.


                          Your story is inspiring. I have an 'intuition' that this is what I should be doing and I'm going with that.


                          I'm going to try to figure out the journals and get started on that.


                          Thanks again,


                          Carrie
