    I've been a follower for the past year or more but it's "never been a good time" to fully commit.


    Now happens to be the right time though. I've been sidelined with an injury, so my triathlon season has been cut short, and I have ample time to experiment with taking my 70% primal diet to 100%.


    My main goals are to ditch my body's dependency on sugar, and get my weight a little lower, so that when I hit the road next summer (hopefully ready for an ironman) I'll be leaner, and a little meaner.


    Body composition @ start of the challenge:


    Height: 6'1" (i don't think this will change, but as a reference for you guys)


    Weight: 172 lbs


    Body Fat: 18.6%

    I've been using livestrong.com to track my diet and exercise for the past few months, which has turned out to be pretty handy. It has an iphone/ipod touch app as well, which is pretty convenient to get stuff added while on the move.


    I'm sure a few of you out there are using it, since I've found a few of Mark's recipes already added for me.
