        Sometimes you need to be told the truth in order to be able to see it.

            You'll never see the light if you're in someone else's shadow, or said another way, life is like a dog sled team, if you're not the lead dog, the scenery never changes

                      • I've been high-fat, low-carb for a couple years and fully primal for about 7 months now. In those 7 months I haven't been lifting weights at all, just staying active through climbing and other activities, and have dropped from 173lbs to around 162. I had to eat a lot and lift a couple times a week to stay in the 170's and it just wasn't worth the effort for me to keep 10 extra pounds of vanity muscle. Climbing seems to have a way of restructuring you for better strength:weight. I haven't had an official body composition test done, but from the range my Tanita scale reports, I'd guess in the neighborhood of 5%.

                        I've been restructuring my diet a bit to add in more carbs. Very lean composition + intense activities doesn't seem to give great endurance. Adding more fruits, sweet and other potatoes, beets, etc seem to be helping in that respect.

                        • I've been primal for quite awhile now apart from a couple months off the wagon period. Never measured my body fat but I'm 5'6" and my weight tends to stay around 125-130. The first picture is a couple years ago when I was truelly ripped as hell, probably unhealthily slow, my BF had to be increadibly low. At that point I was almost 100% primal, and was doing tabata sprints 2-3 times a week, had an overall high activity level, and was in the gym about 3 days a week. Too much work if ya ask me. Currently I still have six pack abs, but have a healthier lean look to me. I workout a couple times a week, sprint once or twice, and still have a fairly high activity level, I feel healthier in most aspects then when I was super ripped.

                          • Had a six pack since I was 14 (24 now), the difference is now I'm stronger and more muscular. I've been eating primal for about a year and a half, I've lost some bodyfat, but not that much. Brazilian jiu-jitsu made a bigger difference visually than going primal I think. I'm 5''11, 165lbs, probably around 9-10% bodyfat right now. My body feels like a well-oiled machine, it's great!

                            Edit: to people who think it was hard, it wasn't. I ate well, I stayed active, and that's it. You can look ripped/healthy without any sacrifices, it just takes time. Find a sport you love, play and eat good food.

                              I don't believe that having a body composition that looks "ripped", dictates any compromise in health.
