  • Primal Journey (BamaAla)

    I've been primal for about 2 weeks now. Thus far, I've been nearly 100% and loving it. I'm down 9 lbs. already!

    I'm going to start a journal now because I got my body mass measured yesterday, so I have a good "starting place." I hope to update very regularly and to see how my body composition changes over the net few weeks, months, and hopefully years.

    Where I am starting:
    Height: 72.5 inches
    Weight: 96.1 kg (211 lbs)

    Lean weight: 59.513 kg
    Tissue % lean: 62%

    Fat weight: 33.474 kg
    Tissue % fat: 36%

    Android % fat: 46.5
    Gynoid % fat: 37.7

    Legs % fat: 32.6
    Trunk % fat: 42.6

    BMI: 28.6 kg/m2

    I hope to get rid of some of that android fat and get the total fat % down to a healthy level. I will get re-tested every 10 weeks to see how it is going. Wish me luck!!

        Breakfast: Eggs and Bacon (If it ain't broke don't fix it)

        Dinner: 2 T-Bone steaks with broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots. Apple for dessert. I felt kind of bad about eating that second steak, but I didn't want to let it go to waste.
