    Tomorrow I start eating primal, I debated waiting until after Xmas, but then I would be giving in to a 'do it later' excuse.

    Over the last year I've managed to lose over 12Kg and have gone from XL to XS. I have also succombed to 'adult onset athletics' as the kids call it!

    As I've eaten cleaner so I've found grains to be causing me a bloat problem, one of my friends Chris, who is into Crossfit suggested Primal eating, so here I am.

    30 days to give it a fair try, and mixing it with my triathlon training after new year. I'm training for Ironman to raise money for the cancer hospice in Glasgow.

    If you see me doing something stupid from my food lists, please hollah! Thanks

          I had a little ooops moment today when I started drinking some juice and thought it tasted strange, checked the label of my 100% orange juice (yes it said that on the packet) and I found it had added sweeteners (small print). I now have a wonderful thick headache!

          Next time I will double check.
