    From the home page there is a tab called "About", then under that tab there is "Primal Blueprint 101". There are tons of helpful guides in there.

    V,
    Bro, I'm sorry...I don't really understand what you're asking. Is the question the TIMING of your meals (as in, what time you eat) or how you specifically stop eating bad stuff and start eating good stuff?

    If so, you eat when you're hungry....pretty simple in that regard (though you may have to work through some trigger issues), and as far as WHAT your eating...it's a matter of will. Give it a shot for a day, your absolute 110% try. Let's say you flub for one meal...the next day, try again. Eventually, you'll be able to go the whole day Primally. It grows gradually from there.

    I have no idea if I answered your question or not...am I close?

    Here is a slightly revised version of Grif's Eat This Not That list that I put together for my mother. Thank you Griff.

    PRIMAL DIET – EAT THIS, NOT THAT

    Eat this
    - Meat (preferably grass-fed)
    - Poultry (preferably free-range)
    - Fish (preferably wild-caught)
    - Eggs (preferably cage-free)
    - Non-starchy and/or green vegetables (preferably organic)
    - Avocado
    - Butter (preferably from grass-fed cows)
    - Lard
    - Ghee
    - Coconut oil
    - Coconut milk
    - Olive oil (but not for cooking)
    - A berry (up to a handful)

    YOU CAN AND SHOULD EAT IT. In fact, it should be the backbone of your diet.

    Not that
    - A legume (bean, pea, peanut)
    - A grain (wheat, corn, rice) or made of a grain (cereal, oatmeal, bread, cake, tortilla, pasta)
    - A processed food product
    - A "low-fat" manufactured food product
    - A "low-carb" manufactured food product
    - A "diet" manufactured food product
    - Anything with an ingredient that ends in "ose" (sucrose, glucose, fructose) or that contains sugar, agave nectar, honey, or maple syrup
    - Anything from the center aisles of the grocery store...

    YOU SHOULD NOT EAT IT. Throw it away (unless it's a cleaning or stationery product, in which case use it for its appropriate purpose).

    Eat in moderation
    - Dairy product (milk, yogurt, cream, sour cream, half & half) – whole milk (not low-fat)
    - Nuts (peanuts are not nuts)
    - A seed
    - A fruit other than a berry
    - A starchy or sugary vegetable (carrot, beet, winter squash)
    - A tuber (potato, sweet potato, yam)
    - A nightshade (tomato, bell pepper)
    - Coffee

    UNLESS:
    - You are trying to lose weight (for dairy, nuts, fruits, starchy vegetables, and tubers)
    - You are lactose intolerant (for dairy)
    - You are significantly inactive/sedentary
    - You are insulin resistant (for dairy, nuts, fruits, starchy vegetables, tubers, and coffee)
    - You want to go 100% evolutionary diet and avoid anything we aren't sure he ate

    Yes. Eat Primal food when you are hungry, until you are satisfied (not stuffed). Wait until you are hungry again. Rinse, repeat. Don't go by the clock - go by your body's natural hunger signals. If you're not hungry, DON'T EAT, even if the clock says it's mealtime.
    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.

    the biggest change was putting what you can eat first. I thought starting with the no-nos casts a negative pall on things.
