    Also, i've had pitted nails for years, and they're finally growing out looking somewhat normal (less little gravelly pits anyway)

    What a wonderful thread. Had to check my elbows after reading some of the posts, and yes...they are smooth for the first time in many years. Who'd a thunk it?

    Nails are also much healthier looking. Another thing I haven't seen anyone mention: both of my big toenails, which were becoming seriously ingrown, have started straightening out. What a relief not to be experiencing that pain any more. Anyone else experience this? It might have more to do with "barefoot" type shoes than diet, or maybe it's both?

    Those are the weird little things. The big things include more energy, much better focus, disappearance of seasonal allergies, and far better moods. Libido is through the roof also, but that can't really be considered a bonus until I have a girlfriend. lol
    Live your life and love your life. It's the only one you get.

    My stretch-marks are fading thanks to Vit K2 and coconut oil in my diet, I'm generally feeling really happy, and my sleep is out of this world restful and deep.

    Come to think of it, my elbows are smoother now and I can't remember the last canker sore I had.

    Pretty much the same, but worth mentioning:

    -I've become sharper in class, so I don't need to study that hard since I retain everything more easily.
    -No more bloating and much better sleep
    - I had a consistent pain on my knees, which I thought it was my fault for not warming up before dance class, but ha! Gone like the wind.
    - Stronger nails, and glossy hair, or so I've been told
    - I can actually feel satiated after eating, which is huge and a big blessing. The anxiety from feeling bloated/stuffed but still craving was a real nightmare.

    OMG how awesome! How long have you been primal for? I've only done it for 2 months, hoping they'll be gone within a couple of years? Dr K reckons cellulite goes in 3-5 years if yous tick to eating clean!

    One of the first things that my wife who has always been very slender noticed was that her stretch marks from our three little blessings faded from being light red/pink. She commented that she had friends whose stretch marks were still red and it had been years. I think the extra healthy fat supply really makes a huge contribution to your body being able to adequately heal itself. I have seen a similar result with my overweight stretch marks, although they are far from gone. I also saw decreased redness in a scar on my leg from a car accident 3 years ago.
