Today is my 1 week mark, I started the primal lifestyle and 163 pounds and today I weighed in at 159. I can't believe I'm in the 150's!! I'm not at 100% primal yet, because of my carb flu from going gluten free; I've decided to go slow with the remaining carbs and increase my protein intake. I'm still feeling hungry most of the day, but from the advice I've gotten from members of this forum, I've decided it's from not eating enough fat. It's hard to retrain my brain to go from low-fat to eat as much fat as I want.
So far I'm trying to stay under 1600 calories. I'm trying to eat less than 100 grams of carbs, and despite what I originally thought, it's been really easy! I'm experiencing carb flu, but am finally feeling some relief from that. I have been dealing with some cramping, but it actually feels like the pain is coming from my kidneys so I'll need to research that. All in all my mood has improved and my energy levels feel more stable.
My next weight loss goal is to reach 149, my ending weight loss goal is to be within a healthy weight range for my age/height, which should be around 120.
