        That is amazing KrisC! Congratulations!

        I've been Primal for 3 (and 1/2) months and it only gets easier IMO. Keep on reading forums/sites/blogs that motivate you, try new recipes or make some favorites that are primal friendly, and know that you have a support system here.

          Before work, while the kidos are eating breakfast I do a Kettle Bells work out video. I started coming home for lunch, Fast Walk for 20 min and Kettle Bell workout..

          Breakfast:

          Eggs

          Lunch:

          Cucumber with Tuna
          or
          Salad with Chicken

          Dinner: (Varies)

          Meat and Veggies..

          A week ago I cut sugar to see if it make any difference and what I noticed was my stomach appeared small and I felt less bloated..
          Still not 100% Primal, I have on occasion had small flour tortillas(tacos) and if I drink I have vodka, soda water with lime..

            Awesome work. Always great to see other people that are making their lives better with the Primal Blueprint. It always motivates me to work harder hearing success stories. I went primal about 4.5 months ago. Have lost about 54lbs. in this time. My goal weight is another 15lbs. I've posted my story and some before and after pics in another thread in Success Stories called "Diabetic getting Control". Good luck with your goals.

              This is perfect. The foods you listed are good.

              Of course, the first weight you lose is apparently water (or so every nutritionist tells me!) The weight loss is very rapid and comes to a grinding halt.

              That's when the real test of might starts.

              Hit your fats harder and you won't slow down.

              Also, I've heard so many good things about the kettle bell mixed with the primal lifestyle. Keep it up!

              If you want more results, you could try a more moderate version of HIIT.

                They are right. If you're curious, Robb Wolf explains why we lose so much water weight on low carb in this episode of his podcast at around the 29:18 mark.

                Congratulations KrisC on the great start! Keep it up, you're definitely on the right track by further cutting sugar.

                  Every nutritionist also says I'm on the road to an early heart attack with my red meat. I take EVERYTHING with a grain of salt now.

                      Great! Don't expect to keep losing like that though - it will slow or pause for a while, and eventually you may need to adjust things. Take the long view. Great start!
                      If you are new to the PB - please ignore ALL of this stuff, until you've read the book, or at least http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/ and this (personal fave): http://www.archevore.com/get-started/

                        it is a great start, and the long view is the way to go!

                        you'll get to your goals. as you get closer and closer, you'll be fine-tuning -- you may have to count calories, or you may have to do more of X and less of Y or what have you. But don't worry, you will get there!

                            You can get really fast easy results when you start off by just sucking down coconut oil. I found dropping it increases my weight loss now.

                            I fry everything in it, I just choose not to take raw spoonfuls of it any more.

                            You could also try more fish oil and hit the gym harder.

                            Lose the sugar post workout and just have a huge protein shake after lifting the heavy stuff.

                            All of these things worked for me. Just always take my advice with a grain of salt.

                              Raw coconut oil helped you lose weight? is it nasty to eat raw?
