Hello from Ireland!
Ive been following the primal way of life for about 6 months now and im loving it!
great way to live =]
Hi Fergal! I'm from Belfast :-)
Hiya Fergal (and Stoneage queen) and welcome, I'm in Cork myself, which part of the country do you hail from?
Im from the north! Craigavon in Armagh.
I wonder if there is any others on here that live in Ireland? :P
we could get a "primal irish" gathering.
Ya that'd be deadly!
Welcome to the primal community Fergal! Glad to have you hear... ain't it the best lifestyle out there?

From starting this way of life i was 16 stone! and now I'm at 12.3stone..so I'm being told I'm under weight..which is a bummer..
I'd like to bulk up a lil but i thought i should try and get rid of some body fat that is not going away..due to cortisol I'm guessing as i suffer from depression..my diet is clan as hell though..but my energy levels aren't great anymore from what they used to..so i fired up my fats..
I'm eating under 50-60grams of carbs per day usually..my LB in protein and the rest is usually fats..i don't tend to eat fruit or diary products (intolerance) and i don't over do the nuts..
SO...the questions are:
1: How the hell do I get rid of the last bit of body fat
2: I'm too god damn skinny!
3: I'm guessing I need more fat?
I think you need to chill on limiting the carbs. Most people who want to maintain weight stick around 100. I love fruit, especially in the summertime. Also, do eat more fat but eat A LOT MORE PROTEIN!! If you want to gain some weight, make sure its muscle and eat A LOT MORE PROTEIN!
Sorry I said it twice but it seems very necessary for you. How many grams do you think you consume in a day? Again, don't worry about limiting your carbs as much as you are too.
about 150g a day i'd say..
I find it actually really hard to hit 100g of carbs! thats alot of veggies. haha.
I'm up in Dublin, would deffo be on for a primal gathering of some kind.
Apparently we even have a group;
For snapping up those Thursday specials in Aldi.
