    Primal Fuel
    Very motivating thread. Today is only day 7 for me. Needless to say the carb flu is making primal eating extremely difficult. My main issue is low energy. Ive been having a hard time making it through the day. My job can be very demanding at times and requires constant high energy. Sweet fruit has helped slightly. I can't wait to get over the hump and fully adapt to primal eating. This thread has been very inspirational and has helped me a great deal to stay the course. I can't wait to contribute, thanks guys!

    Primal doesn't have to be low carb. Just low grain.

    Maybe you should eat more potatoes?
    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.

    Palm your shoulders?

    Ah, ok, makes sense. Sorry, I get confused about some of the things that are harder to do when you're bigger since I haven't been there myself.

    Thanks!

    Like for instance...

    • no more spots on my back
    • no more dandruff in my eyebrows
    • no more hurriedly putting down big saucepans when dishing up because of wrist pain
    • no more bellyache


    Any more?
    For me, and this is only week 2 of my second attempt:

    *no more gas. This might sound funny, but I was in PAIN, especially at night and my husband suffered also.
    *no more mucus in my stool. This is big! I was convinced I had IBS, but it appears not.
    *my bloated lower belly is much flatter. This was instant, after day 1.
    *no more sinus issues! I was waking up literally every morning feeling like I'd been punched in the face. I couldn't breathe, my throat was sore (GERD too, maybe?) and my eyes and face were hot and swollen. ALL GONE!!
    *I can taste and smell better already. Weird, but I noticed at church how many different old lady perfumes I could pick up. lol

    I'm on Eat more fat protocol and notice these two things so far:
    Sleep - definitely improved
    Energy - constant during the day
    Hunger - very reduced (soooo good, after the first week in which I thought that I have black hole in my stomach)

    I'm happy
