    Most Common Primal Newbie Mistakes?

    Primal Fuel
    What do you think are the biggest mistakes that Primal Newbies make when adopting this (lifestyle? diet?)? I've only been doing this about 2 months now, and I'd love to hear from some of you Primal Veterans'...

    Have you seen this thread? I think it is pretty on point. I especially agree with number six - don't tinker with the diet right away. I am almost 5 months in and still fight the urge to keep changing things....even though the diet is working perfectly just as it is!

    Not eating enough fat. Eating what CW says is "healthy" and then wondering why you don't lose weight. Not eating enough fat. Not being kind to yourself. Oh, and did I mention not eating enough fat?

    Yeah, that's the stuff I keep seeing.
    Primal eating in a nutshell: If you are hungry, eat Primal food until you are satisfied (not stuffed). Then stop. Wait until you're hungry again. Repeat.

    Eating too much fruit may have been a problem for me.

    Also, not exercising because the weight went off so quickly that it was hard to be motivated to run around. I'm still working on both of these things.

    Using too many sweeteners
    Too much snacking, especially on nuts
    Too much dairy
    Trying to be Jesus and play the saviour
    Looking down on people and their CW practices that you were mired in just a few weeks earlier.

    Too much dairy.

    It is such an easy and convenient source of protein and Fat that people do the cottage cheese thing/greek yogurt thing to excess.

    Not treating all 10 PB laws with equal gravity then wondering why it doesn't work
    Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.

    Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine

    I know for me it was (and still kinda is) clinging to the fundamental CW concept of fat=bad, as Griff mentioned above. I still struggle with it.
