    Intrigued and need more info....

    Primal Fuel
    Hi Guys

    I stubbled across the Primal Blueprint after my trainer mentioned that he was following the caveman diet, after some reading I found Mark's Daily Apple and from everything I have read so far I am seriously considering giving the lifestyle a go. The only thing I am unsure about is the whole diet side of things. Just wondered if any of you would mind sharing what your typical daily diet consists of? Im particularly intrigued to find out what you do for breakfast, if indeed you eat breakfast?

    I recommend reading the book, or the http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/ section.

    And the breakfast thread is here: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/forum...REAKFAST-today

    agree - my advice, get reading!!! The basics are all in the book and theres more detail than you could ever need in these threads. Browse, read - best way to learn. Then once you are on the path, this is a great place to get detail and info and support and hear peoples experiences, in a context you understand.

    Good luck!

    thanks, i'm waiting on my copy of Mark's book and the recipe book winging its way to me at the moment and i'll work my way through the 101 section. Had a quick look at the breakfast thread, some interesting combinations, suppose you just need to use your imagination. Thanks

    any type of egg - if I'm on the go - Hard Boiled ones; bacon or sausage; most don't like fish for breakfast but I do - if I have time to cook it up. Omlettes are great on weekends when I have more time. I throw a bit of everything in there.
    I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. ~ Henry David Thoreau

    There are different approaches to breakfast:
    1. Eat eggs as often as you can stand it . Add the best bacon, sausage, etc that you can afford. I buy farm eggs every week.

    2. Find primal substitutes for typical breakfast foods such as coconut flour pancakes, almond or pecan meal custards, flax bread, no- grain granola..in addition to as many eggs as you can eat.

    3. Forget your notion of "typical breakfast foods " and eat meats and vegetables, either fresh cooked or leftovers.

    Whatever works for you. Going the #2 route helped me to transition.

    This sounds simple --- because that's what it is. And this succinct advice is spot on: eat meat and veges for breakfast. A little good fat. Or don't eat at all. Wait till you're hungry. And then eat whatever your body is telling you it's hungry for (as long as it's meat and/or plants).

    This forum really needs more informative *sticky* threads where newcomers can go and find answers/ links to thread for their commonly asked questions. I think it may help a lot of people out!
