    Oops! Losing muscle!

    Hi Everyone,

    Ok, so I've been eating primally for about 5 months (though with a few slips here and there). I was doing a pilates class and an aqua aerobics class once a week but have had to stop...

    Thanks everyone - looks like Excalibur is a good bet then - higher up the price range than I was hoping, but if I use it lots, it'd be worth it......

  3. Dehydrator recommendations for a UK primalite!

    Hi Everyone

    I'm really wanting to get a dehydrator - beef jerky is kind of hard to get hold of in the UK and the ones I have seen don't have very nice ingridients in. Also my kids love the Goodies...

    I do like Nola - but like you said, it's more something for an occasional treat, as I found out when I was eating it a lot and not losing weight!

    Fish and bacon....mmmmm.... a mighty combination!

    This is a great recipe for combining the two and is real comfort food. You can leave out the potatoes for primalness!

  8. Quinoa porridge - higher carb than I thought!

    Hi

    I thought I'd cracked it when finding an alternative to my beloved porridge (oatmeal) for breakfast on cold mornings - quinoa seemed to be a great alternative - high in protein and a seed not a...

    You got me there! I've got myself here. I've got to get myself out of it.

    I guess I'm still in the mindset of having a treat to feel better - need to work on that one!

    I think this is probably the crux of the problem! I'll have to weigh, measure and log for a while and be ultra strict on the non primals. Even with the "non diets" there seems to be no getting away...

    Good advice! I must start choosing not to eat the bread and sugar! Definitely not eating them as much as before and mostly don't miss them, so I guess I'm doing ok.....

    I definitely don't get enough sleep - a 5 year old and a 3 year old make sure of that! I'm working on going to bed earlier as I tend to be a bit self destructive...

    Hi

    I've been eating primally for about 2 months now but frustratingly I haven't lost any weight. I'll lose a bit, gain a bit and basically stay the same. Before Christmas last year, I was eating...
