Hey Jim. I was strict vegetarian for 10 years and I just started Primal in February. My body was failing me in so many ways, despite a lifestyle of "healthy" food and exercising that I needed to make a change and I'm trying this.
Are you young? It says boy in your name so I'm guessing that?
I don't know if the damage that I did by being vegetarian is permanent or if this will work for me, but so far it's doing well. Good luck with things.
