            Ecks, you are so right bro I will break it down right here and now.
            Long post coming up, so you may want to gather some more wood for the fire. I started my primal journey because of health reasons HBP and the like; I also got tired of what I saw in the mirror. When I last went to the doctor I weighed 330lbs. That was some time in September 2012. I, like alot of my fellow cave dwellers, was looking for something new for 2013, so I search around the Inter-web and landed on MDA. Did some reading hoover around for a bit, then I came across yours, Sabine and a few others that helped me to decide to walk away from the SAD world and enter the cave.
            Stats: SW: 308 (1/16/13), CW: 290 (today), GW: 200 (full of muscle by years end.). I am 5' 10". Currently I am trying to IF like a moefoe and stay up under 2000 calories a day.
            Hey man, thanks for reminding me to put it out there.

              Hey! Love that you're putting it out there... One suggestion is to leave fasting alone until you're a few months into paleo... You've gotta give your body time to adjust or it will fight back. That being said you are killing it professionally. Just keep in mind that your body needs fuel to burn your stores.

              While we're here and at it I want to point you to a documentary on youtube: "The Skinny On Obesity" by Robert Lustig. It's broken into 7 parts and can get redundant at times but I think it'll help you more with gearing food choices for a successful weightloss. Lustig isn't paleo per say but his views are so close in line that he's considered to be a highly praised figure in the paleo world. After that check out "Fathead". It's a follow up to super size me. It's chalk full of history as to how the low fat movement came about and talks further about why it doesn't work

              Glad to see you're killing it professionally! Those first 40lbs will be your easiest but don't get discouraged the rest will follow!

                      I went out into the valley of SAD today to put in 8 hours, so that I would have stones to trade to pay for my cave and other things, most of you know what I am talking about any who. I was trying to make it to dinner tonight so I could continue my primal ways with some organic ground beef, but I caught a whiff of something on the air; Cinnamon bread, My inner SAD beast woke up and like the Hulk trapped in a tiny room, it was banging on the walls of my stomach. SAD Hulk was rising to the surface and since I was not home in the cave or didn't have any primal snacks with me, I am force to try and drown the beast in water. Arghhh why won't you die SAD Hulk!!!!

                        Know what one of my fave dinners is? Steak with cinnimon... Try it dude. It'll cover at least the cinnimon portion of your craving. So good!

                          Hi RowdyTyke-- Thank you for welcoming us into YOUR cave!
                          Suggestion--i too am a sugar lover. I've cured most of it--meaning that I can pass it by with little or no interest. Except ice cream. Ohhhhh, that is tooo hard. Someone on one of these forums (i think it was paleobird, mighta been sbhikes...) gave two bits of advice to someone else that has been HUGELY helpful to me--an extra arrow in my quiver when that beast is at the door... (1) If you are hungry, ask yourself if you want a piece of MEAT. If you don't, you're not hungry. If you do, GO EAT A PIECE OF MEAT. Rinse and repeat... until you don't want the sugar any more. (2) Eat more protein. Sugar *seems* to be a desire when the body needs more protein. But i'm a post-menopausal woman, so that may be hormones or something like that. I went from pre-PB vegetarian eating less than 20 grams of protein a day to a 18%bf meat eater eating up to 1.5 POUNDS of meat a day. And EVERYTHING is better.
                          Good luck--we've got your back here in the forum. Sometimes we get a little contentious, but with your username, I suspect you won't have ANY problem with that! And I, for one, like rowdy humor...

                              Thanks drjoyous for stopping by my flame with some sage advice, definitely needed some extra arrows for my quiver. I think I will have to cook some bacon and bring it into the SAD valley of work.

                                Mix it with salt, pepper, paprika, and your fave cooking fat and coat both sides of your steak evenly then cook. I promise you everyone in the cave will fall in love with these steaks!

                                Make sure your steaks are close to room temp when you cook them. leaving them to marinade outside of the fridge for 30 mins should do the trick!
