  • Recent Convert From Atkins

    Long time lurker, first time caller here and thought I would introduce myself.

    I have been eating paleo/primal for a few months after losing 100lbs of weight on Atkins. I was very athletic growing up but gained a lot of weight after college due to some medical problems. I rapidly lost weight going VLC but there were side effects, mainly due to my own stupidity. I was looking only at macros and living off magic protein powders and splenda protein candy bars. Over time, I hit a weight loss plateu and was frankly looking more gaunt than healthy. I had lost most of my muscle and I just felt weak all the time. I thought I was just getting old but now I know I was pretty much malnourished.

    I have been having good success over the last couple of months building my muscle back and am feeling great. I've been having a lot of fun watching the amount of weight I'm lifting increase by the day and am having fun finding ways of making liver palatable.

    Nice to meet y'all.

    Welcome! Congrats on the weight-loss and for finding a way back to health through Primal eating!

        Well done for the weight loss and what is great you found out the truth in time about real food, so now you can become a wonderful healthy human. I am the same just over 2 months of healthy eating, been a few hiccups, but was due to health problems. I now am on the highway to becoming fit and healthy
