I started following the Primal Lifestyle about three weeks ago. I am approximately 80LBS over weight. My typical intake of food during a normal day pre-primal was just about anything I wanted. Fast food 4-5 times a week, lots of deserts/sweets, lots of grains and carbs. Since I have started I have not had any grains, no fast food, no sweets (other than sugar in my coffee and dark chocolate). I do still use a small amount of organic ketchup occasionally and I eat some fruit ( maybe an apple or some pineapple daily). I a guessing I am eating about half the calories I was eating. I have found it relatively easy to follow and I feel good. While I am hungry during much of the day I don't have the "outrageous" cravings that I normally would get when trying other types of diets. My only frustration is that I have only lost about 8LBS. I typically lose about 8LBS-10LBS/Week (over the few weeks when I have tried other diets. The calorie restriction alone should generate more weight loss. I know that those pounds may have been mostly water weight but it still felt like I was accomplishing something for my efforts. I am committed to sticking with Primal because I believe in the science that supports it but I am hoping to start losing more weight at a quicker pace. Any thoughts or suggestions would be much appreciated.
