      This is a great interview with Mark. Many of you may have already seen it, but if not it is a must see!

        It's interesting to note that I posted this thread as an invitation for those 60 and over to provide some feedback and share their experience on their Paleo/Primal journey and have not had any responses from anyone in that age group. Not sure if its because there aren't many people 60+ doing Paleo or that this age group doesn't frequent the internet. Most of bloggers are in their 20s through 40s it seems.

          Hi Canuck:

          Sorry that when posted to your journal I did not identify but I am very close to moving to Medicard age (Dec.). I have lived the primal life since Jan. 2011 and have lost and kept off 15 lbs. I do not post pics and mine surely would not look like how good yours do. From years of yoyo dieting I have extra skin and have not begun the PB workout suggestions. I know, I know. I mean to but....

          I have recently recommitted to following the plan a tad more closely; meaning, no alcohol or grain products. While I have managed to stay away most often, I still find it difficult during the summer living on a lake and with picnics and in potluck group settings. I still have not committed to the workout plan. I'm not a couch potato, honest.

                  No problem, thanks for letting me know. Good luck on your re-commitment to Paleo! Keep me posted on your progress.

                      Hi, Canuck416: Just thought I'd respond and start by congratulating you: Your physique is amazing. One thing that struck me about your post is that my day is almost identical to yours, which is interesting to me. I'm female, 48 and been paleo for 7.5 weeks. I'm just wrapping up my 2nd, "Whole 30". Since about week 4, I've fallen into a pattern of eating a late breakfast around 11- 11:45am and then nothing until dinner around 5-6pm. I exercise daily. I've lost 12lbs and around 7". Now that the fat is falling off, I'm switching gears and really focused on my daily workouts which I look forward to. I mix up the workouts with some hiking, walking, weights etc. There's much work still to be done. My focus is not 100% on weight: My focus is on creating a body what is low in fat, muscular and powerful. I think I'm ready to post a 7.5 week photo in the next day or so and will search for a 'before photo' which, by most standards, wouldn't be considered all that bad. I am very disciplined and have always worked out but an MBA education over the past years has reduced me to a softer state than I would normally find acceptable. Anyway, I'm back on the path to a more powerful body and I'm looking forward to tracking the measurements now. As a final thought, I would again just like to congratulate you on your state of health, and the discipline that you quite obviously demonstrate. Cheers, louisa

                        Awesome! Thanks for the insight into your Paleo experience, sounds like you are making great progress. On a personal note I weighed in this morning at 167 lbs which is what I weighed during my last year of high school, but like you my focus is no longer on weight but on being strong, healthy and fit. It's great to hear your story and I look forward to seeing your photos. All the best.

                              Wow, after plateauing in the 168 to170 lb area for 3 weeks, I suddenly dropped to 165. Diet is still basically the same, perhaps a few less carbs a couple of days last week, but I did start taking 500 mcg of Kelp based iodine per day. It could just be coincidental but still it makes you wonder if it stimulated my thyroid in some way. Also I added another interval session at the track last week. I haven't weighed 165 lbs since high school!

                                You're an inspiration! An encouragement (if I needed one) to continue on the Paleo path.
                                I'm a 63 year old woman, just three weeks into my reformed eating system. In this short time I have lost 18 lbs, despite enjoying a variety of tasty real food and never feeling hunger.
                                My digestion has improved - never even thought of reaching for my customary antacid - and no nasty bloated feeling.
                                Just a thought regarding grains ...
                                My husband's horse cannot tolerate being bedded on straw - he coughs continually, and we can only put it down to the chemicals they spray the crops with. We've tried wheat, barley, oat straw - all with the same result. He's now on woodchip, and never coughs now. So tell me ... if a large animal like a horse can be so badly affected by simply lying on straw from the grains we are encouraged to eat, what sort of effect does it have on us if we're actually expected to EAT the stuff? Never again, no way.
                                I feel so much better after just three weeks of this lifestyle change (not diet!) that it's a sheer joy to follow.
                                Thanks for your example.
