  1. Want to lose 20 lbs - do I have to give up Cappuccino breves?

    I'm on week two of my 21/30 day Primal Challenge and feeling generally good, though sometimes lethargic and like a bottomless pit, requiring more food right now than I habitually eat - I realize this...
  2. massive hunger - and fatigue - normal at start of a challenge?

    Hi world,

    Started a 21/30 day challenge yesterday and by gum I'm pooped. Realllly low energy, and starting to feel unreasonably hungry.

  4. My 'It's About Time: 21 Day Total Body Trasformation'

    Hi to whoever might actually read this,

    I'm starting tomorrow, for real, finally.

    Here are my stats:

    Thanks, everyone. So, just to verify: no Primal Fuel in my smoothie for breakfast during the whole 30?

    I thought the whole 30 meant only 'real' foods -- no protein powder...?

    A mid-sized breakfast is a good idea, I just don't really dig the cooked veggies in the a.m.
  10. I don't like big breakfasts!! But can't fast in the a.m., so...

    I'm starting a total 30 tomorrow and experimented with having a bigger, higher fat breakfast this weekend. It did, very much, keep me full til almost dinner time. So - aces! - in that way.

    But...

  24. WTH? I'm flying after 3 weeks of pure Primal bliss and then, SELF SABOTAGE!

    Okay, so I am not looking for pity (or tough love), but rather -- anyone else out there had to battle this within themselves?
