oh yay! I just discovered this thread!! I'll be 57 on the 18th of this month! I have a journal, link below, that chronicles my primal journey. I went primal "cold turkey" on Jan 3rd & am feeling better than I have in over 25 years!! After struggling with trying to lose weight & get healthy for about 35 years I have found my answers in the Paleo/Primal way of eating. Since Jan. 3rd I have lost almost 11 pounds. I haven't done that since 1980 when I went on a very restrictive High Protein/Low Carb diet of that day, worse than Atkins.
Another book to read (after reading Mark's of course), is Wheat Belly by William Smith. Very Very eyeopening & just validated that the way I'm eating is the right way!
Looking forward to sharing the journey with my over 50 warrior sisters!!
