I can't even believe I'm saying this now, after 8 years of higher education followed by a intense desire to climb the career ladder....but dammit, I just don't WANT to work 9-5pm everyday. I feel clausterphobic and depressed even thinking about having a corporate life (I`m an investment banker), tied to a computer and cubicle with little or no natural sunlight. I want something different, something just....more.
Has anyone else experienced this since going Primal......
i've never really been interested in the 9-5 office thing (even though that's similar to what i do now), but i've noticed my distaste for it even more since going primal. i'm finding that keeping myself active enough outside of work helps get me through the day, but i'm always looking for something a little more exciting. i've been interviewing for more desky-type jobs lately, but i'm holding out for a white mountains sherpa job.
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.

I love being a 9-5'er. That job pays my bills, provides me with health care benefits and a pension, and keeps a roof over my head. Now, outside those hours? I do anything but that job! I'm single, so there's only my income to make ends meet on and it can be tight, but having a steady paycheque is a huge relief. I didn't always have that. Outside of those hours though, my time is mine and I enjoy myself.
... wait, you're an i-banker and you work 9-5?! you don't work 80 hours a week??
There's a great success story in the website (I don't think it's in the forum) of a young guy who gave up his corporate job and joined the Peace Corps, moving to a remote island in the Pacific, who began to live a very primal lifestyle. It was a very appealing story for me!
