    Shaken.

    I lurk here a lot, but I don't post all that often. Tonight I feel compelled to get something off my chest.

    Between August of 2011 and the time around Easter weekend I lost just below 80lbs doing...

    The transformation is incredible, the weight loss, strength, flexibility, all of that is enough to make you say wow.

    Essentially, what everyone else has said. You need more fat.

    The body can convert energy from carbs or fat, if you've taken both away, your body has no source of energy.

    I tried to transition...

    I read Mark's post and the comments on it, and all the posts in this thread. (Thanks for the input!)

    I went off and thought about it for about an hour while I was doing some housework, and I came...

    Is diversity necessary nutritionally?

    I'm starting up again tomorrow, after failing over and over last year due to not realizing that you can't do primal and "almost no fat".

    Every time I've ever had success in any dietary plan, all...

    I wish I'd found this thread last year. Seriously.

    Since last October I've tried to "go primal" four times, and Tim Ferriss' "Slow Carb" diet once. (Slow carb is essentially Paleo with beans...

    I haven't been to a doctor recently but had a "full workup" a few years ago at about 280lbs, which was before I hit my peak of 340. In 2010 I got back down to 270 before falling off the wagon, and...

    I was vague, but I understand the folly of scale weight. This last time I was also using a tape to measure stomach, neck, biceps and thighs and not only did the scale show a 2lb increase after two...
  10. Punching through the barrier: Not enough fat?

    I've tried, and failed, to move to a primal/paleo diet four times since November, and it's not because I just can't live without donuts.

    Going primal has, for me, caused rather extreme fatigue,...

    Late last year before I'd found PB and PB Fitness I investigated bodyweight exercise. So far I only walk and was looking to add things to that.

    I came to the same conclusion, that weights would...

    For the record, My plan is to amass a large collection of various fats, specifically bacon fat. By this spring I hope to have my own smoker on my back deck so I can make tons of cold smoked grass fed...

    Thanks all.



    So far, Mark's Primal Blueprint seems to be the most accessible, and would likely be most easily understood.

    Robb Wolf's Paleo Solution is, at times, really really dense with...

    Tim Ferriss has a section on Cinnamon in The Four Hour Body.

    His description, if I recall, is that cinnamon blunts insulin response to carbs. He uses cinnamon before his "cheat meals", which he...

    How to Cook Meat, a primal dream

    Even though my family doesn't know what I'm doing starting 2011, and would likely try to talk me out of primal if they knew, Christmas from my sister was this:

    Made myself breakfast about an hour ago, today is "pre-PB" starting full primal tomorrow, but since I've got a fridge full of eggs and meat thought I'd get a head start.
