Hello! I have been maintaining a 90 lb loss over the last year, eating more or less primally. Or at least my interpretation of Primal ; ) I find it interesting to see how differently people interpret the information! I'm wondering are there any other people who think of this as being about vegetables as opposed to meat? I eat either eggs or meat or fish sometimes cheese or yogurt at every meal but the bulk of what I eat at very meal is vegetables, even breakfast. I don't really eat low carb because I eat so many vegetables! Lots of fiber!! I would really like to connect with other people who have a similar philosophy. I am a sugar addict so I try to avoid it all together except what is in vegetables and berries. (I don't even eat all those yummy desserts with dates because it is just too much sugar for me)And I don't do grains or potatoes. I might eat a sweet potato if I were pressed but not regularly. I have tried going without dairy these last couple of weeks and I don't like it! Dairy doesn't bother me so I had some today and unless I find I am gaining fat I think I will continue eating it. I do go out to the pub on occasion and have a Yorkshire pudding I consider this the 80/20 bit.
I love what Mark says about working out so he can play!! I have been doing stronglifts, running/walking, aikido (taking a break for now though) and recently at 51 I have started to long board! I even did a cartwheel for the first time in 30 years! Being strong is good!! I still have a fair bit of fat floating around on my body but if I never lost another pound or another inch that would be fine. I don't hurt anywhere as much as I used to and I can play in ways I thought were impossible for me at this age! Hurray for the new life!
