    Try-ee. I tried it for 700 days and I don't quit. Worked.

    I'm so pissed off. All my zits are gone, I poop more regularly, my joints don't hurt anymore (I miss my cane!) - and what's worse, I get to eat TONS of bacon. It's awful, I have so much energy I annoy my coworkers. I hardly ever feel hungry unless I REALLY am, and all this fat-burning, lifting and sprinting has etched my body with definition and lines you'd see on models and statues. After 700 days, I would have thought this could be better. I mean, the first six months of figuring out what to eat, all the adjustments my body had to make to an ENTIRELY new way of eating were alright. I had the runs sometimes, and sometimes snacked on nuts to get by. But now that I've lost 45 pounds, look 5 years younger (at 30, that's saying a LOT), and live a better overall life, I just don't know what to say. I guess I'd advise anyone to give up and wuss out early, or you might feel amazing after your body has rebuilt itself.

    Been at this over two years. It's legit. People drop likeflies around here for no apparent reason. Stick with it folks, give real food a chance. I know you'll miss living on pizza and twinkies at first. I did. Until about six months in, when my whole person just finally became saturated with nutrition and I felt stable. Now most baked goods actually seem like the sawdust they are. Yeah, I'll eat some free chocolates or a brownie here and there on occasion. But it's not enough to matter! I just stay healthy anyway.
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    I'm glad it's worked for you really well .

    But I won't dismiss the posts by someone saying they tried and quit, as I want to know WHAT they tried and WHY they quit! I agree, though, that it takes time to get results. I've been primal a bit over 2 months, which is nothing in the scheme of things, and I'm no where near to quitting... but I do know that it's not always been as quick and easy as some promise it will be .

    However, I'm pretty sure I'm in for the long haul!

    Being happy is pissing me off.
    If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

    Spot on Knifegill - I am only 10 months in but feel amazing cant wait to see what the future will bring. Like you have watched co-workers dig into cookies during a meeting and you can just see the brain fog rise as they try to stay awake. Grok on!
    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.
    Don't forget to play!

    Good for you. Seeing results would power up any person. It's not seeing the results that makes it hard to persist.

    You can still carry a cane. You could get one of those silver-tipped walking sticks that make a person look distinguished.

    You should get one with a sword in it.
