    Thanks TQP.

    Yeah, I used to eat a lot more eggs. And, omg, I ate so many prime ribs when I first went primal. I think I was so protein and fat deficient that I just could not get enough.

    Age, Hormones and Sudden Sweet Cravings

    I turned 48 this year. I have been pretty happy with my body on the PB plan. I work out regularly and keep the diet quite clean. I'm 5'3, and 115 to 119 lbs (depending upon number of "cheats").

    Hi Neck,

    I am still not clear. I talked about a two-week plan, which is actually done repeatedly for a total of about 8 to 10 weeks (and is pretty much the way I already eat). This plan just adds in three to...

    Yes, I have a little issue with dark chocolate. I mostly only buy it when I go to the office (kind of a comfort, motivator, etc.). Thanks for the tips!

    Ditto. I've been thinking about how this primal diet really adds up. I get a lot of great deals on meat and eggs, so I feel fortunate.
