    Thumbs up Week one

    Primal Fuel
    First week done. All primal. Only dairy is heavy cream in coffee. No other dairy (except eggs) and zero grain. I have lost at least 5-8 lbs. Good exercise and small portions. I find my appeitite more frequent but portions smaller. I seem to get full with less. I am pretty much following the PB well except for the coffee and heavy cream. I can only know the next weeks will be more good results. For me this is easy.

    The first week is the best! Don't be surprised if over the next couple of weeks it's not as heady. Your body is going to rebel a bit, but it will all even out after a couple of weeks. Not trying to rain on your parade at all--I'm still relatively new at this myself (Day 42), and I remember Weeks 2 and 3 being a little less fun (but not bad either--definitely not like being on a "diet").

    The "carb flu". This is like the heroin flu.

    It is funny, the evil carbo.

    I'm stoked for ya dfc!

    The first week is mostly water loss, none the less, great job!

    Keep pluggin' away even on the weeks where the scale doesn't respond as you would think. In fact, it's better to use that scale as a Frisbee and chuck it.

    Use the fit of your clothing, the improved fitness levels and how you feel on the inside as your barometer of success.
    Self-realization. I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates, who said, "... I drank what?"
