    Vegan to Paleo: The Journey of a Lifetime

    Primal Fuel
    I posted here last week, because, after many years in the vegan/vegetarian/raw communities, I found some health problems beginning to crop up and I went on the hunt for answers.

    Thanks to encouragement from forum members, I am now using myself as a human guinea pig to carry out a 30 day trial of the primal diet. Big deal for me - never done anything like this before.

    The address on my website where you can read my trial is here (I'm 4 days in and so far it's been extremely interesting)...

    Paleo Diet Experiment: A Former Vegan Gives It A Try for 30 Days

    To read the original letter I posted to this forum, click here:

    Welcome any comments or feedback from those more experienced with this lifestyle. Unfortunately, the vegan community has already gotten wind of what I'm doing and so I'm getting some heat, but I can take it.

    Thanks guys! I'm still stunned (and knocking on wood) that I haven't ended up with carb flu and that my body is responding so well. Many thanks to the forum members who urged me to give this trial a shot...

    I love this quote of yours: "It's amazing how we can blind ourselves so willingly to the truth, how a belief system as deeply rooted as high carb/low fat was for me, can insidiously work to keep us from perceiving what's happening right in front of our faces."

    THIS. YES. Go you. I'm already cheering over here.
    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.
