I've been thinking about going Primal for awhile now, but just couldn't make up my mind (didn't want to give up pasta). I was a vegetarian for years, but not any healthier. Got kinda fat and lazy while I was in college and didn't really know where to start to lose weight until I stumbled across this site (and a couple of others). I am absolutely amazed at the differences I've seen and felt(!) since I started making my first changes towards being full on Primal. I am lucky in that I love to eat all of the things that are good for Primalists. I just threw in the "healthy" whole grains because I was told I needed them. Last Sunday (5 days ago) I decided to finally do it, and decided to make three small changes so as not to overwhelm myself with too many changes at once. I decided on giving up sugary high calorie drinks, drastically reducing my carbs to a slice of bread at breakfast and a half a cup of rice for dinner, and giving up dairy products. I feel so much better. Indigestion = gone. Bloating = gone. I have more energy and I can tie my shoes without feeling like I have a basketball in the way. Last but most certainly not least, I have dropped 6 pounds in 5 days!!! I am amazed. I don't even crave the things I have "given up on" like pasta which I used to crave like crazy. I know I'm far from being where I want to be, but I am definitely on the right track and can get there. Thank you Mark and the Primal community for supporting others in their pursuit of living a healthy lifestyle. I hope I will one day be able to contribute as well.
