I'm a complete beginner at this. I got tuned in to the primal nutrition ideas from an article in the rivendell (bicycle company) newsletter. I've noticed for a long time that eating sugar is immediately harmful to me, bad mood, low energy etc.
My goals, improve my nutrition, work out more, but don't hammer the intensity. Generally I'm a cyclist, -- beautiful summer for cycling here in the midwest, -- yesterday was 20 miles at a greatly reduced intensity for me, a casual ride helping a beginner get used to her bike, great fun.
