    what or who led you here to Primal

    Primal Fuel
    I found out about MDA and the primal blueprint through Nerdfitness.com. Steve linked to this site in many of his weekly blogs and finally one day i clicked on the link and have never looked back (actually thats a lie, i still read Nerdfitness ) how did you get here. what if anything made it all 'click' for you.

    I was gonna ask that EXACT same question!!

    I came through fitnessblackbook, I was looking for some information on slowly getting rid of some of my muscle mass as felt I was too stocky for a girl.

    Thankfully I read through PB and realised it wasn't the exercise that was so much of the problem!

    woo-hoo!

    For me PB was the ultimate and logical destination of an 18 month voyage of enlightenment around the internet.

    What originally launched that trip 2 years ago was my 'discovery' of ketosis, (via a meal replacement VLCD).

    I was lurking on the weight lifters threads at 3FC. Several of the posters do crossfit. One had a picture of her abs for an avatar. I was so impressed! I followed her to her blog and here. Almost immediately ordered the book.

    That is an easy answer. I visited MDA a while back, and thought the whole concept was BULLSH*T, and Mark was clearly a shyster peddling books & pills. Bread and grains BAD for our health? Impossible. Someone was smoking something, and I wanted some. It was BLASPHEMY, all of it !

    At the time I was searching for answers to my questions about "Toxic Liver" that I had heard of in a seminar. Someone at another discussion group mentioned Cardiologist Dr. Davis, and when I read his reports on wheat & grains, my chin dropped.

    That was when I took a 2nd look at Marks web site and started reading his many articles. Next thing I bought his book and my entire family is now on the Primal Diet. If it weren't for Dr. Davis, we would NOT have believed in the Primal/Paleo concept AT ALL. To this days people roll their eyes and walk away if I mention that grains are unhealthy. Everyone is totally brain washed on this subject and it is an impossible concept to promote.

    Best to all,
    Grizz

    I was just surfing through Amazon for health and fitness books. Saw The PB a couple of times and eventually took the big click!!
    Read and lurked on the forum for about a month as it took a while for my carb brain to understand that it didn't really NEED carbs.
    Went Primal on 01 June 2010 and haven't looked back. I'm usually only 80/20 or 70/30 on the weekends but I dropt 3kg in 2 weeks and have maintained weight (63kg / 165cm) since then, quite easily.
    I'll take this opportunity to say 'Thanks Mark for introducing PB to the (my) world'.
    Cheers!!

    I heard Mark on one of Jimmy Moore's podcasts. I had already been low carbing, and the PB seemed like a natural progression for me.

    I had read Loren Cordain's book that a friend had and just jumped right in. Then with some searching I found MDA- I even have an app on my iphone. I had struggled with wheat/ gluten problems so it was a great way of living for me. All those gluten free substitutes still made me feel ill. This isn't just a DIET it's a way of life. I can't see myself eating any other way. Though the weight loss is slow the fat loss and inces are coming off. The big plus is I feel AMAZING! My body no longer constanlty hurts me. I frequently hear from others how amazing I look.

    I was ill from food intolerances and the side effects of celiac disease and suffering from an increasingly limited diet. I found MDA and discovered a massive group of people who were eating similarly to me but from CHOICE!!! I can't tell you how much of a difference that made - stopped me feeling like a freak and more like someone who was making a healthy choice. I cut out the few remaining foods that MDA said would cause problems and upped my fat intake and things got much, much better.
