My husband and I have been primal for 5 weeks now. He's doing it because I'm doing it, and I'm the cook in our house. So far he's lost 16lbs and I've lost 9. Today I'm doing my first IF trying to jumpstart my weightloss a bit. I'm just amazed and starting to get overwhelmed with the amount of changes that we're implementing into our lives. Our food choices are competely different (which I LOVE, we are eating the most delicious meals right now), we're taking supplements every day, trying to sleep more at night, walking more, and now fasting. I'm simultaneously becoming obsessed with all of the new info and getting a bit lost in who we are as people now. Everything is so opposite what we've been told all of our lives. This is a truly life-changing turn around for me, and it has my head spinning a bit. This is by far the easiest and most obviously natural diet that I've ever been on but I still have to remind myself that fat is not bad, that I can skip not only breakfast but lunch, etc. I really wish all of this were more mainstream in my area. I sometimes feel like I have the bright crazed eyes of a zealot when I'm discussing all of this with my very skeptical CW friends. Even my husband who has weight just melting off of him is not really buying all of this. So what a relief to have this website and forum to validate and reinforce how I'm feeling as a newly awakened primal being.
No announcement yet.
This is all a little OVERWHELMING but still awesome.
