    I got my first cold last week in 10 months of low carb and primal...i suspect something is compromising my immunity, will be going on Kauffma's Phase 1 diet to see if I get it under control.

    Not sure if I've mentioned this before, but with the recent cold snap it's got really obvious.

    Before PB, going from warm house to cold outdoors meant shortness of breath - a feeling of lungs constricted, only being able to fill them to half capacity. As for exertion in the cold? Er, no.

    Post-PB... I've been cycling happily up and down hill in freezing temperatures, and it took me a while to remember that I 'ought' to be short of breath. No trouble at all.

    In addition to several other things... This morning was the first time I've woken up in the past 6wks w/o being ravenous! I didn't need to get up and eat...so I got the kids ready for daycare, shuttled them off, then made my am coffee (I love it too much to give up) then made breakfast about 45mins into working (I'm working from home this week) so I popped down stairs for my 2nd cup of joe and made a shrimp and cheese omlette and had a breakfast sausage on the side... pleasantly satisfied - not stuffed.

    I'm hoping this string of small successes continue... I'm still working on cutting out my flavoured coffee syrup and replacing it w/stevia - but its slowly disappearing, as is the dairy from my diet... I love food, especially good food...I'm planning on making Oso Bucco this sunday just for the pleasure of making it then eating it!

    My wife halfheartedly follows the PB nutrition -- well, more than that because she is in fact happy I no longer push a vegetarian diet. Nonetheless, she often tells me I go too far, "everything in moderation", etc and still eats grains now and then.

    Well, this morning, after I had used the scale, my wife decided to use it and check her own weight. Results: in a few months she went from 127 to 116 lbs! The expression on her face was... priceless :-)

    Adrianag,
    Is your Vitamin D3 Blood level optimal at 60 - 70 ng/ml ? You need 5,000 to 10,000 IU of Vitamin D3 daily to keep your immune system fully operational. Without adequate Vitamin D3, our immune systems are seriously impaired.

    A MAJOR bonus for me: Prior to taking Vitamin D3, ( 2 months into the primal diet alone) I did catch a chest cold, and it was ALL OVER in less than 1 week! For me this was a miracle, as my chest colds have ALWAYS dragged on & on for many weeks. Sometimes even losing my voice. I recall a chest cold even lasting about 2+ months. Also since going primal, I never cough anymore upon finishing sex. Now that my Vitamin D blood levels are optimal+ I can go to church or shopping without fear of catching someone else's cold. What a wonderful feeling to not suffer from chest colds anymore.

    See my Vitamin D report below for more,

I swear it's true, and once or twice I had a fleeting panic attack that I might not be able to break free, and the firemen would find my corpse there.
    ROFL!!
    My dad has a similar tub (my favorite place to be on a cold day with a good book). I used to suction cup myself to the back of it and then make farty sounds when I "unstuck". The kids thought it was hilarious

    No more cellulite. It just went away. If I sold this as The Cellulite-Erasing Diet, every woman in the U.S. would be on it.

    How long did it take for your cellulite to disappear?

    I've always been a heavy coffee drinker, and now have yellowed teeth. But I swear, going primal is making my teeth whiter. (and no, I haven't cut back on coffee.)
