  • Wow, I totally get it now.

    I've gone on and off primal/paleo eating for the past year, never sticking with it long enough to really start feeling the benefits; and never fully passing the effects of the dreaded low carb flu.

    I've been able to stick with paleo eating (no dairy) for the last few weeks, and over the last few days I've been crossing into the threshold of primal mode, and oh my word, it's a life changer.

    Motivation, energy, positivity, all sky rocketing. I even enjoy and have more patience with my kids. Sometimes I have so much energy, I'm not sure what to do with the surplus.

    The cognitive foginess of the first few weeks has not only gone away, I have more clarity and focus.

    This is coming from a guy is still 100 lbs overweight. I can't imagine how I'll feel when the weight comes off.

    Amazing stuff!

    Wait until you drop 100 pounds living all clean and Primal and then eat something like cake / cookies/ etc.. and see how terrible it makes you feel.
    Not from a guilt standpoint but from your stomach literally hurting and low energy / headaches. Really shows how bad that stuff is for you and makes you think twice before eating anything bad.

      That's awesome! Isn't it fantastic? I've had more patience with my little crazies as well. It helps that the whole fam went Primal, so their behavior has improved immensely!
      Looking forward to hearing from you as the weight comes off!

          Very true. I've had that experience of eating primal for a couple weeks and then overloading on sugar. It was terrible; I thought I was going to have a heart attack.

            Yes! I can't wait for my kids to go primal. I'm working on myself first (akin to putting the oxygen mask on yourself before your child), and slowly working them into it. I wish my kids go full on now, but we are not quite ready to handle it. At least "I'm heading in the right direction" is what I keep telling myself.

                          I have stumbled upon the sight before, but haven't looked deeply into. I'll peruse it this weekend, thank you.

                              Totally worth it when you do. It helps to rest up a lot and get that 8-10 hours of sleep...coffee was my godsend, although now I don't really need it.
