    It took 11 weeks to lose 20lbs - without any real exercise, just walking to the supermarket and back and a cleanish diet.

    Ideally another 50lbs to go. From 242 to 172 overall.

    I'm now easing into an exercise regime so I figure end of April to hit my target.
    Our own life is the instrument with which we experiment with the truth.

    I hear what youíre saying. Dr Eades has a couple of good articles on his blog about getting (back) into primal eating and confirms that eating more fat makes the journey easier.

    The reason I count calories is because I have poor portion control. Iíve found that this helps me keep servings in check. Hopefully this will change as my body/metabolism/insulin sensitivity/etc starts working normally again.

    Bummer about the chocolate! Have you tried Green & Blacks 85% dark? Sucking on just one square for 5 minutes (no biting!) is better that all the Galaxy in the universe (pun intended)

    I forgot about the recipe section on the blog. Iíll check this out.

    Best of luck on your challenge too.

    That's amazing progress. The exercise should make a big difference when you get this going. Keep up the good work.

    Hey lilminiminx

    Thanks for the encouragement! You've got a tough gig trying to grok it out in the land of potatoes and alcohol! I don't envy you.

    You're a triathlete? I assume you're pretty fit and healthy in general. What are you looking to improve by going primal?

    Just curious.

    Keep up the good work yourself

    I just entered exactly what I’ve eaten today into FitDay and it reckons I’ve consumed 1,309 cals and 67g carbs. I don't believe it. I feel so contently full. I’m going to increase my dinner portions by 50%...

    1,777 cals and 84g carbs. That’s better! Now I have no excuse for eating anything else before bed!

    There is logic in there somewhere
