I am starting 'on plan' on the 1st, I have done primal for 4 months before, but went of for quite some time. We have been preparing for 3 weeks, which means sorting through the kitchen and setting up for success. For us (my family of 4) it is important to be prepared, to have a plan, and to avoid derails. So we decided to wait till after the holidays. But we find ourselves already weeding out alot of carbs in our meal planning. I think it will help alot in that first couple weeks where we had horrible cravings and flu like symptoms the first time we went on Primal.
Personally I think it really depends on your personality type. Some people can just wing it, and if they 'fall off the wagon' they just get back on without any negative self talk. But others (like me) have to have a plan and follow a plan. I have my grocery list made for the end of this week...which follows my 2 week menu plan. For me that is important, especially since the whole family is going back on primal. I then just alternate menu plans every other week.
