It actually took my husband seeing someone else doing it and having amazing results (at a restaurant no the less). To him my results were a fluke and he was not interested in reading nor doing anything that had to do with primal. Before he got on board he would go to buffet and binge eat until he made himself sick because in his mind I was being to restrictive (I don't allow bread in the house, bread was his drug of choice). I would make slow changes and maybe meet up with someone living the lifestyle too.
5'0" female, 45 years old. Started Primal October 31, 2011, at a skinny fat 111.5 lbs. Low weight: 99.5 lb on a fast. Gained back to 115(!) on SAD chocolate, potato chips, and stress. Currently 111.
Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

Winterbike: What I eat every day is what other people eat to treat themselves.
TQP: I find for me that nutrition is much more important than what I do in the gym.
