    Hey there Jennachica! My personal trainer has challenged me to do a fitness model/bikini comp with her in a year's time. I'd love to pick your brain about it. I have no idea what to expect or if my...

    Right, so I've been reading this thread for a while as well as the IF threads. I'm trying to break through a plateau and as I'm close to my optimal weight - it's proving difficult. So this morning I...

    I've done a bit of IFing to try and break through a plateau, but I'm not sure I'm doing it just right and maybe that's why I always lose and regain the same 2.5lbs. Generally, I'm not organised about...

    I did this on a business trip the other day. All they had provided were sandwiches, so I just didn't eat. My boss kept asking if I was OK, and was clearly bemused as to how I was still alive at 6pm.

    Thank you! I knew that really, but needed some positive reinforcement. I might look into a VAP test just for fun. I almost feel like I have to prove to people that a Primal diet isn't going to...

    I tend to gain 3-4lbs around my period. It always goes away and usually a bit more as I'm still trying to lose. I still get stressed about it though. My new strategy is not to weigh myself just...

    Thanks Griff... I thought it was an odd reply, but it drew my attention to how little fat I'm having daily. I might have a lot on some days but I struggle getting enough fat in at lunch times -...

    I've got a non-hormonal IUD. It wasn't pleasant to have inserted, but that was 4 years ago and I've never had a problem with it. :)

    @bobsbingo,

    hmmm, maybe that's my problem. Maybe I'm not eating enough fat. I didn't intentionally remove it. I always cook in tallow or ghee or coconut oil and ALWAYS eat the fatty bits on steak...

    I think one of the problems with the Whole30 idea is setting unachievable goals and then feeling like a failure when you make a mistake. The true Whole30 is extremely strict, one sip of milk and you...

    Data analyst/editor and my partner is a programmer. We're both about 90% primal. As above, we're both geeks and this supports our addiction to grass-fed beef and organic pasteurised eggs.:p
