    Primal Fuel


    Hello, I've just joined and I'm looking forward to reading the book( it's on the way). I am a backsliding paleodieter. I am sitting hear at 38 years old and 330 lbs. I know how great this lifestyle can be, I'm hoping I can maintain it with the help of this forum. Previously I was introduced to this lifestyle from the book "Neanderthin" by Ray Audett. This seems similar, but much more interactive. Eight years ago I felt like a weirdo trying to follow the lifestyle and let it get me discouraged. I hope to reach a goal weight of 185lbs, so it's going to take a while. Nice to meet you all, Jason

    Welcome, Jason! The book is an excellent read and the community here at MDA that follows is an excellent resource of information and follow-up support. As of this morning, I'm down 58lbs (from 350, so I know where you're coming from) and I've never felt better in all my life. Good luck! Be seeing you in future posts!

    Thanks Eric and, Wow! a welcome from the man himself, wish I could say I loved the book, but it hasn't arrived yet. I'm on my second day and I'm shedding water like a ducks back! I'm on blood pressure meds that contain a diuretic, when I've been on this type of plan before I've had to cut back on the meds. Spent most of the day cramping up every time I moved. I'm not complaining, it just tells me that without the high carbs, I don't retain the water my body usually does. Looking forward to reading the book and working the plan.
