Hi Groklings! It's been about a month since I dragged hubs and myself into Primal. We were already doing an Atkinesque lifestyle, so not as huge a change for us as for others, but still a big change.
- I'm 51 and do some sports and HIIT and Pliates home exercising. Last year I got bursitis in my hips, which took about 6 months to heal. Afterward I experienced stiffness getting up in the morning or sitting in a chair for a while. I would get up all bent over like a stereotypical ole lady!
About a week or so ago, I mentioned to hubs, "Hey! I'm not stiff anymore!" I am so happy about this, as you middle-aged folk can imagine!
I love the coconut oil and have been eating it daily. We've been eating avocados almost daily as well, and I've replaced my low-fat milk for heavy cream in my daily 2-3 cups of tea. So, our fat intake has increased greatly.
I have been about 90% Primal-compliant. I cheated with some sushi rice. But I did get a side of broiled mackerel, and got some Ikura - salmon eggs sushi. It was very high quality - yummmm, like butter! We also cheat with chocolates. Costco's chocolate-covered macadamias.
Anyway, we think Primal is WIN!
Welcome! I hope primal goes well for you.

I design websites and blogs for a living. If you would like a blog or website designed by someone who understands Primal, see my web page.
Primal Blueprint Explorer My blog for people who are not into the Grok thing. Since starting the blog, I have moved close to being Archevore instead of Primal. But Mark's Daily Apple is still the best source of information about living an ancestral lifestyle.
