  • Hello!

    Hi everyone!

    I'm Ben, 33 from Montreal.

    I started eating primal on monday, i've been thinking about it for a bit and once i finished reading the PB book i was convinced. Now trying to get my wife to read it. She's ok with cutting carbs but not convinced to eat more fat (she finds it gross).

    I'm 5'9".
    I was 240lbs 2.5 years ago, went down to 204 for my wedding in 11-12 months. Since the wedding i gained weight, up to 224 2 weeks ago. This morning was back at 220. I would like loose fat and be under 20%.

    The 36 lbs i lost was done with the CICO way, but i was still eating to much crap. Now i'm eating clean except for my Heinz Ketchup that i still have from time to time. I'll try a recipe for primal Ketchup.

    Have a nice day!

    Hi Ben! Welcome and congrats on starting your journey!
    I can definitely sympathize with your wife. The idea of eating so much fat grossed me out as well. I started with avocados and adding a little bit more olive or coconut oil to my meals. This might work for her.

    Best of luck!

      I have a few tablespoons of Heinz per week. Changing to home made won't make any difference.

          Thanks for all the support!

          Over 1 week in, already see a difference. The wife is seeing some too. No more mid-afternoon crash, not hungry in the morning until 10-11am, farts have pretty much disappeared! lol

          Had a little bit of my 20% on Sunday, my primal friends had us over for supper, with a nice primal pizza and dessert, but they had some gluten-free Tostitos and salsa for a cheat. I got some. 1 hour later the farts were back and my wife's allergy that had disappeared since the switch came back.
