  • Mark is the only fit one out of all of you.

    I think that much of the allure of this primal lifestyle is marks psychical fitness and claims of success. I used to follow this thread regularly it seemed apparent that not many people where achieving long term success. There are of course many newbies who will lose that initial weight that most anyone does when starting a low carb diet but very few people here have results that are anywhere comparable to marks. Do your own research and get of marks sack.

    Evidently you haven't found the "Before/After" photo thread, nor the rest of the "Success Stories" forum.

    Are you a college student, trying to navigate college while being Primal? Do you know any other PB college students on a tight budget? Heck, for that matter, are YOU trying to live Primal on a budget? Enroll at Primal University!

    For after all what is man in nature? A nothing in relation to infinity, all in relation to nothing, a central point between nothing and all and infinitely far from understanding either.

        Down from a (tight) 36 waist to a 32 waist in 14 months. My genetics are clearly not as good as Mark's, but I'm pretty happy so far. No counting macros, no counting calories, no repetitive treadmill work.

        Yup...I'm okay with this.

          Uh.. what?!
          As others have said - success stories, before/after.. all the primal "locals" (grok stars?) have had major success: Griff, Grizz, Batty, etc. etc, Mal Paz - infact there's a thread about the "grok celebrities" you'd most like to meet - ALL of them have been majorly successful.

            Yeah, you are probably right. The allure for me is gazing with rapt adoration upon Mark's success and has nothing to do with having greatly improved my autoimmune symptoms and losing two pant sizes since Thanksgiving. I should just give up and join Weight Watchers.

                No! You have all missed the point! Mark has wonderful psychical fitness! His brain is obviously WAY more in shape than the brains of the rest of us! Maybe thats why Mark is able to provide so much top-notch information for us!

                  right, he's using his psychic powers to control us all.

                    Dude, have you seen Al Kavadlo? Apparently not. Granted, he is a trainer and all, but what a remarkably lame generalization to make about the people on this forum.

                    I understand that not everyone will look like Mark or Al, but the whole point is to achieve our own goals. Yes, we should research for ourselves, but isn't that what most of us are doing here, along with reading other sites and books and bouncing ideas off each other?

                      I didn't change my lifestyle to "look/be like" Mark (hard to do since I am female with cerebral palsy), I changed to get, be, and stay healthy. I started January 1, 2009.

                      My latest lipid panel is great-- TC 159, DLDL 65, HDL 76, Trigs 77. My last fasting BGL was 80, HbA1c 4.7, fasting insulin is <2. I'm off many meds, including prescription pain pills . I can now walk and exercise without excruciating pain from bone on bone knee OA . My chronic diarrhea is gone.

                      I see this as MY successful application of Low Carb/ Primal. I see the 60+ lbs I've lost as simply a perk of living a healthy lifestyle as outlined by Mark Sisson.

                          I think those who have not found long term success were looking for a " Magic Bullet " and just went of the wagon. Lifestyle changes can be HARDER than diet changes alone and most DO NOT have the discipline !

                            Way to go OP, we're all SO impressed.

                              Oh crap, it's a cult after all. Guess, I drank the primal Kool-Aid.
