I've been dabbling in primal eating for about a year. Over the past 12 months I've lost almost 20 lbs. It's been very on again off again, with sometime months of SAD eating between getting back on the program. I ate a lot of crap over Christmas. I felt awful, so the day after Christmas I made a 30 day commitment to strict primal eating. Breaking the sugar addiction has been my biggest challenge over the past year, which is why I feel like I need to be really strict, if I let even a little in, it's all over for me. So today is day 7. And I'm acting like a complete b*tch. I'm grumpy and moody and impatient. I had a couple of days of headaches earlier this week which I chalked up to low carb flu. I'm eating 2-3 pieces of fruit a day, and I'm eating sweet potatoes once or twice a week. But I keep reading about this boundless energy and euphoria, and I'm wondering where it is. I really believe in this way of eating, but as of right now I'm still really missing my sugar and bread. Please tell me it gets better and I won't be b*tchy for the rest of my life!
