    In peace

    Primal Fuel
    It just got into me, while sitting down on my computer. I feel so much in peace following this lifestyle. No gluten, dairy og grains really does wonders. Although I am not on this site to loose weight, but to gain (I do consume rice and potatoes), I am very thankful that I got the opportunity to make myself a better person. I know this is the right place for me =) Anyone else feeling me?

    Living Primal is definitely easier than the CW weight loss life I was living. Eating tiny meals 5-6 times a day, counting every calorie, running 7 miles every morning. Too damn stressful.

    I've finally let go of most of that, and I've quit paying attention to calories completely and just eating as I need to. It's very peaceful.

    Absolutely. And I've had other people notice it in me too. I'm the same -- still hard driving, same opinions, etc. -- but just more consistently conscious of things that make my life worth living, versus things that I can simply let go.

    It's so funny you write this because as I was walking through TJs today I thought the same thing.

    I was thinking about all of that obsessive behavior and energy I used to waste on chronic cardio, calorie counting, and checking the clock to see if I could eat again because it was a huge source of comfort for me. I would binge eat, overexercise to compensate and then under eat. I couldn't tell what my body needed.

    I was thinking about all of the IBS, diabetes, and heart disease in my family and how last year at this time I was dealing with pre-diabetes, PCOS, and IBS all at the age of 26.
    It's all gone now and I'm as lean as I've ever been, endless energy and no longer need to carry a snack with me for fear of a hypoglycemic fall out. I LOVE listening to my body now. Rest, play, dance, run, eat some fat, protein....whatever. I am so very grateful for PB, Mark, Robb and all of the people in this community. Truly amazing what a year can bring.
