    I gained 4 pounds when I started, watching my calories. Horray for low carb flu.

    My 4yr old eats all my vegetables and steak and pork and bacon...

    My 2yr old eats all of my eggs and yogurt and nuts...

    Since going primal both boys hit such a growth spurt they skipped over 2 sizes and now I have NO clothes that fit either one of them

    The boys so much energy they wake up even earlier (so do I, but now they even beat me and my alarm!)

    I am craving seafood - and I have never liked fish!
    You will be ok. Just stick with it.

    I found the only problem fat doesn't fix .

    Time to either eat and cook shirtless or wear a bib.

    I hear bibs are in.

    Well, if you soak the shirt in bacon fat or butter, the whole thing will be stained the same color, so it won't matter. :P

    Thanks Josh - I have taken back off the 5lbs I gained and besides the sinus infection I have right now I really do feel tons better. I know eventually this will work, I just have to stick with it.

    I am sort of amazed that I do not crave bread or pasta in the least. I crave fruit, but I am keep VLC right now (for January) and will add my fruit back in next month

    I pretty much stuck to the diet 100% every day so far...no cheats at all.
    I already had my BM for today.
    Yesterday was 242.6, today was 244.
    I did eat some rather salty jerky right before bed last night.
    I had a small glass of whole/full fat milk last night as well. (maybe 4 oz)
    I imagine you've lost some since posting this- but if it helps- I lost 12# the first week and gained back 6# the second. As long as the overall trend is down, fluctuations shouldn't be an issue, and your overall trend is definitly down!

    I do that on a regular basis. Improves your reaction/flinch reflex. When that doesn't work, you're working on general pain tolerence. (I tend to cook so much at a time that it's all but deep-frying by the end.)

    Now if only I could get my wife to do this XD.

    Sexist jokes aside.

    Use butter to fry bacon, lowers the chance of it bouncing in your face etc.
