    I know I have made the right choice going primal. I just need to accept that I will make mistakes sometimes. Eating lots of protein for a few days after is a excellent idea And yes I need to try other recipes as I seem to be eating the same things in the last month.

      I'm glad I saw this thread, I've been having a bit of a struggle lately and this has a lot of good insight in it. One of my stumbling blocks is that I don't like cooking and I get tired of preparing my own food really quickly.

        I'd barter with the wife. Saying no to junk food is not just good for you I'd tell her Honey I've got a goal to be healthy. I need your help. I need you to do <insert keep junk food out of the house> for < 3 months(?) or so> in exchange I'll do <insert bribe, shoot if someone offered to vaccum my floors, clean my toliet I would dance naked on table tops, so figure out what motivates your wife. I'd say after 3 months of no junk food in the house your wife will feel better and join you primally.

            Have you asked your wife to maybe not buy those kinds of things for the house? I'm sure she would support you and you can both be healthy together

              My wife is a chocoholic. She can go without chocolate for a day or 2. She thinks I'm on another diet. I do tell her this is my new lifestyle. So I am determined to succeed and prove her wrong. Thing is she has more problems than me, so I'm hoping she jumps on board.

You decide what you put in your mouth throughout the day. When you are truly sick of being fat or unhealthy or whatever it is that makes you toy with the idea of being primal that is when you will find the motivation to stick with it. Personally I love food but I love my family more. I have been primal almost 14 months and it is still a daily struggle to not put processed carbs and other sugary crap in my mouth but I get through it one day at a time. You slip up and you just get right back on the band wagon. That is life and life is made of choices. When you choose to be healthy and primal then you will find that will power but it really needs be an all or nothing at least at the start. You just have to find your reason which is in turn your strength.

                Best of luck. Find your reason and hold on to it.

                This is really good advice. The strength lies inside you and you will fail until you are dedicated to becoming healthy and you love yourself more than junky food. You can do it!

                  Well, incidentally, when I did make stuff, it usually ended up being fairly primal; I've never been one to make lots of pasta. The simpler the preparation, the better, so broiling a steak - no problem. Largely, though, I would eat out and then have leftovers. Embarrassingly enough, I cook only for myself!

                    Try intermittent fasting and calorie/carb cycling- eat no carbs whatsoever some days and on days you do eat carbs do IF:

                      Take a look at Barbara Sher's book 'How to Get the Life You Want'. The first chapter has some excellent exercises to help determine what techniques for motivation will work on YOU. Shame, praise, competition, fear, rewards...they all have their uses, but there will be some techniques that are best for each individual. Likewise, there are some things that just don't affect you, so why bother using them.

                          Hang in there- it's just not worth it to go through getting back on track again after you realize how horrible you feel from getting off of primal. If you want a good snack just to kick the cravings- look up paleo chocolate chip cookies and paleo pumpkin muffins. Revise your meal options and make sure you get enough good fats. You can do it- be strong!
