I started the Primal Lifestyle about 3 weeeks ago. I'm down 8 lbs and feel great. The reason I decided to become a desciple was I have been active all my life, I'm a former competitive distance runner and became trapped in the thought that if it wasn't aerobic exercise it wasn't exercise, I've never wanted to have a bulky muscualr body, just good symmetry. However after years of pounding the pavement I wasn't keeping the weight off anymore and my joints were starting to talk to me. On top of that my lipid profile at my annual checkup was starting to change for the worst and I developed high blood pressure. These things really upset me since I watched my father waste away from diabetes and now despite all my efforts I was headed in the same direction. I'm 56 years old 5'11" and weight 218 lbs. Today I'm down to 210 and my blood pressure has come down. I have a full blood profile scheduled for this month and I'm looking forward to positive results. Not where I want to be but feel great about heading in the right direction. Eating this way is not hard, except explaining to the waiter or waitress why I don't want toast, biscuits or pancakes at breakfast or bread and potatoes and lunch or dinner.
