BACKGROUND: I've been attempting to be Primal for about 4-5 months now. I started out doing a very low carb version of the Atkins diet around October 2008 where I lost about 20 lbs. I stumbled onto MDA, and have been trying to become as primal as possible ever since.
PHYSICAL ACTIVITY: I train Brazilian Jiu Jitsu approx. 4-5 times a week on the weekdays, Muay Thai
on Tues. and Thurs. and I try to get in about 3 days of weight training a week.
WEIGHT: ~ 177 lbs.
* I was stalled at around 173 for a couple months, and then I shot up a few lbs. which was a little even more discouraging.
GOAL: I'd like to drop down to 160 lbs. I just started training to do MMA and would like to be very lean. My short-term goal however is be be 170 lbs or below by the end of the summer. I believe a 7 lbs loss in a little over 2 months is very feasible.
VICES: I don't drink much alcohol ever (if I do it's low carb such as whiskey), and I'm not a big fruit person, but I do love and I mean LOVE cheese and butter. Not the most primal substances, and as you'll see I try to limit my consumption of both, especially cheese. I also have an addiction to diet soda which I'm trying to kick. Old habits die hard, and I managed to give up the diet soda for a while, however, recently the habit has resurfaced.
