New Brit girl to primal- first steps
Im 34 from London. I was recommended the primal blueprint and I have found it very interesting and makes complete sense!
I have yet to finish the book but have already started to change my lifestyle to the rules and I have to say that I feel good. I am not as hungry as before and enjoy the fact that I can eat bacon with the fat and not be guilty- bring on the bacon omelette!
I thought I would miss bread as I did eat bit everyday but so far I haven't missed anything that I used to eat and look forward to my lunches and dinners.
It's early days but I do feel different within my body which is given me the motivation that finally this is the most sensible and worthwhile life style to adapt - rather than the other 'diets' I've tried.
Best wishes to all
Ah, the lifestyle v. diet My family have found it hard to come to terms with the fact that this is what I want to do for the rest of my life!
The best piece of advice I have seen trawling through the posts is don't try to 'paleo-fy' CW foods. Find new and exciting fruits, veges and meat to make into treats
Primal is for winners

Welcome to Primal Central!
Great to see some other Brits on here. I thought I was alone...
Like Zozza, I'm another Brit new to the Primal Blueprint life.
I'm 42 and have had an interest in exercise and diet since my mid-teens. A colleague of mine introduced me to new thinking about the food I was eating that I thought was good for me, mainly pasta, porridge, etc. He showed me a book by Barry Groves which, a bit like Mark Sissons, turns a lot of what I thought I knew, on its head.
However, it wasn't until I saw and bought Mark's book that I've almost completely changed. As soon as I read his Conventional Wisdom versus Primal Blueprint pages, I was hooked!
A real eye-opener and has changed how I exercise (I used to pump iron) as well as eat. I do less and have adopted his Lift Heavy Things, sprints, pull ups, push ups etc and have noticed a real difference. I'm naturally slim anyway but I've lost body fat and look tighter around the stomach and feel more shaped generally.
So glad I found his book. I've got a bad sweet tooth which I'm trying to reign in but having cream in my tea helps!
Sorry for going on. Hope to be in touch more and promise to be more brief!!
