    Going primal made me realize that I am actually very intolerant to gluten! I have always been pretty small, but I dropped about 20 lbs after going primal. That means I went from being 120 lbs at 5'1 to being about 98-101 lbs. When I look at older pictures I can actually see how bloated my face looked.

    TL;DR

    Yes, I get hit on a lot more often now that I actually care about my body.

      Lots, often by guys who are 10 years younger (I'm in my mid 30s, so we're talking guys in their early to mid 20s sometimes!). However, I already have an amazing primal man at home, so I am flattered but definitely not looking for a mate. I've been told quite often recently that I look like I'm around 25, so that plays a role I'm sure.

      He gets a lot of attention too, and nobody believes he's 40. People really want to know our secret!

        absolutely.
        older guys, younger guys, girls - I agree with posters above - a lot of it is confidence and how I carry myself - that and the 20# lost, and toned muscles doesn't hurt

        forward,

          Also in 30's and get mistaken for 22-23ish... sadly I'm not interested in 23 year old guys though.

              Lol, yeah. Thus the 40-year-old partner. I like grownups, and while some people get there in their early 20s, it's not all that common.

                Good for you! I would definitely prefer 40 to 20! 20 I mean 20 year olds are fun to look at, but minus a select few I doubt we'd have any of the same interests.

                  I've always gotten appreciative glances, as an adult. People ARE commenting on it more,though. Wolf whistles, cat calls (equally met with a dirty look and the finger,) date invitations (met with "only if my husband can come with us,")and the like.
                  What's even funnier are the people who ask me out based on my apparent age. I've been hit on by so many high school/ college kids it's not even funny.
                  "Hey, baby, wanna go out some time?"
                  "I'm too old for you and I think my husband would have issue with us dating."
                  "What's a [16-21] year old doing with a husband?"
                  *I flash my wedding band* "I'm 27, and I have my engineering degree. The answer is still 'no.'"
                  Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

                    My husband just laughs at me when I tell him (incredulously) how often I get hit on now. He says, "Honey, you have always been beautiful, but now that you know it, you are dangerous."

                    Sometimes I actually act vain and he laments that he has created a monster. I respond, "No Darling, Primal has created this fabulous beast."

                      Yeah, me too. I guess we are part of that "group"

                      Although, I haven't had someone tell me they are afraid of me (because apparently I look[ed] intimidating) in a long time. I guess that's progress.

                        Well, not only am I part of that "group" (which in my case means older woman), but this is what MOST people look like where I live:

                        Female, 5'3", 50, Max squat: 202.5lbs. Max deadlift: 225 x 3.

                          I haven't been primal long enough or lost enough to get hit on.

                          But what I have noticed big time is....just how fat most of the people I see in the store are. And only since going primal. I see them and wonder if they had different things in their carts (always SAD) if they would be thinner, healthier and less likely to be riding around in that motorized cart.

                              I could work out all day everyday for ten years and not look even close to that thin! I will never be skinny, but I don't think that matters. I have a lot of weight to lose, but my confidence definitely is what gets me noticed. Well that and boobs, yep confidence and boobs, lol.
