      3. The Black Friday jeans are falling off and I'm on the second-to-last hole on the belt. Time for new jeans!
      Griff for the muthafuggin' win.
      Are you a college student, trying to navigate college while being Primal? Do you know any other PB college students on a tight budget? Heck, for that matter, are YOU trying to live Primal on a budget? Enroll at Primal University!

          • Omigoodess! Griff, that ROCKS!!!!!
            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!"

                  • First post here, but I've been going primal since September 20th-ish after moving out of my parents house offically. My boyfriend has been flirting with the idea of going primal for at least over a year, but we both found it to be difficult because we were on a college dining plan with awful food.

                    Now that we're cooking for ourselves I've lost 17+ pounds in about a month and a half (going from 217.2 to 199.6). That's 2.7 pounds a week!

                    I've never been happier or healthier. I no longer feel depressed about how I look and I feel empowered to make many more changes in my life. I thought I was going to be stuck being overweight forever. I never thought that by eating fat I would lose weight!

                      Yeah, primal is downright crazy when you stop to think about it. Then after a while it's more like "this makes perfect sense, why didn't I think about it before?"

                      Like, I wish as a teenager obsessed with nature shows I had stopped to think "Hey! these animals are eating their natural diet, why am I eating a frozen dinner/bag of chips/can of soda/pint of ice cream..." etc... I NEVER stopped to think about it...
                      I used to seriously post here, now I prefer to troll.

                        Definitely. I'm happy that I mad this obvious realization (thanks to MDA!) when I was 19. At the rate I was going in terms of my weight gain I was going to be severely obese with a ridiculous amount of health problems (namely diabetes). I figured that it was just the hand I was dealt. I'm happy I realized that losing weight and being healthy are actually ridiculously easy. Not to mention that now that I've elminated carbs I have wayyy more energy to exercise... so instead of the vicious cycle of cookies -> tired -> lazy -> weight gain -> sad -> cookies etc. It's totally changed to considerably more healthier cycle of eating primally -> energy -> weight loss -> happiness -> eating primally.

                        Who would have thought that people can stick with something that actually WORKS... I've been telling everyone I know about MDA. My mom has even gotten on board and is trying it... and I never would have pegged my Italian chef of a mom to be willing to let go of the pasta and italian bread!

                        • Out of what otherwise has been a shitty day, I did my training this afternoon and plyometric pushups were part of the program. (Well, I chose them from a list of potential exercises... ) I've not done plyo pushups in a few months, and my best efforts then only gave a couple inches' hand clearance.

                          Lo and behold, I rip off ten clapping pushups. On grass... and it rained a couple hours before I was on the field. Not consecutive -- they went 5-3-2 and I only stopped to reset my hands -- but hey, count me surprised. I'd not done a legitimate clap pushup... ever... at least to my memory.

                            • I've noticed I can think clearer at work, and churn out my product a lot quicker than most here. It's just that clarity that PB brings. I can multitask even easier than I could and when I want to focus, it's a fine, narrow beam. Sometimes too narrow, heh.

                              • I am (was?) a severe emotional eater since childhood. There's been a lot of stress flying around the house for awhile and instead of eating a ton of cookies or chips or crackers, I rolled a slice of deli meat and cheese together. The emotional responses that kept telling me to "eat! eat! eat!" went away after eating half of the snack - which has never ever happened before during emotional eating. Usually the voice tells me to find something else to eat if I'd finished a container of carby stuff.
